Bridal Inspiration In a Medieval Village | Castle Combe, England

A young woman, her beauty as breathtaking as her surroundings, stands before a quaint, old English Village. Castle Combe is a picturesque medieval village in the beautiful Cotswolds where it once served as a thriving wool trade center, and now holds the ability to transport you back in time…or so it seems.

Like the calm waters slowly running beneath the iconic stone bridge, time seems to stand still making this a moment she owns. A moment that can’t be forgotten or taken away. Her beauty is timeless. She is strong. She is certain, and she is self assured.

In her hand, she holds her vows, affirming her love is both a choice and a plunge into the desires of her soul.

“I didn’t fall in love with you, I walked into love with you, with my eyes wide open, choosing to take every step along the way. I do believe in fate and destiny, but I also believe we are only fated to do the things that we’d choose anyway, and I’d choose you, in a hundred worlds, in any version of reality, I’d find you and I’d choose you.”

Perhaps what will remain in her memory are the romantic whispers of her love, her choices made from deep within, and the feelings she felt when surrounded by the natural beauty of this timeless village with its emerald greenery, tawny brown woodwork and crimson architecture.
