Holy Cross Church Owelpen¬†stands right above Owelpen Manor in the ambling Gloucestershire Countryside. A more Quintessentially English Wedding Venue you would be hard pressed to find.
From the churches website:
Owlpen Church has medieval origins like the rest of the group of buildings round the manor. It is likely that on this site the Saxon Olla would have set up a church-yard cross (one is recorded in the eighteenth century) in his ‘pen’. Yet little enough remains above the foundation courses of the medieval chapel as it was before the eighteenth century. Contemporary accounts of the simple cottagy building, “of little architectural character”, which it has usurped and all but obliterated, disparage its mean and humble appearance. T.D. Fosbrooke was describing it by 1807 as “a very rude church consists of a chancel and Nave, with a small low spire at the West end.”
