When I asked Emily and Rich if they knew anywhere they would like to go for their pre-wedding shoot, they suggested feeding the fish at the trout farm in Bibury. I have only visited Bibury briefly before and hadn’t had a chance to explore so to go and see this pretty little Cotswold village in more detail was a real treat. Plus anything with animals (or fish in this case!) involved and I’m there. If you haven’t visited, you should.
The trout farm is situated at one end of the village near to the beautiful Swan at Bibury hotel. You can enjoy a walk around the numerous lakes and you can choose whether you want to feed the fish or catch them and in the summer time you can BBQ what you’ve just caught. The gardens are also really pretty and they have a great cafe so it’s well worth a trip.
After visiting the trout farm we took a stroll round Bibury. It’s also famous for it’s quaint little National Trust cottages called Arlington Row. These 17th century weavers cottages are probably once of the most photographed Cotswold scenes. And the beautiful River Coln runs right through this Cotswold village so you can walk over the bridges and even dip your toes in the water if you want to. Here are some of my favourites from the shoot.
