CORE Lighting is an inventor and manufacturer of event lighting which is used extensively for weddings in some of the most prestigious venues in this country and overseas, in royal buildings, all the London museums, and most of the famous hotels around the country. They just happen to be based around Painswick which means they can bring their powerful, battery-powered LED up-lighting to The Beacon Hall, which will transform the atmosphere of your wedding.
From simple table lighting for dining guests, decorative coloured lit furniture, to coloured uplighting the whole building, or practical lighting for floodlighting outdoor areas, they can provide it all. The atmosphere will be truly special to your own taste (bold colours or subtle whites) and any photos or video will be enhanced by the specialist lighting.
Where to have your ceremony
Painswick has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to places to hold your ceremony, whether you are looking for a religious or a civil wedding.
St Mary’s Church, Painswick lies in the centre of the village and is the largest church in the parish, its fine architecture reflecting the history of wealth from wool production and weaving in the area. Approaching from any direction, your eyes will rest upon the tall, beautiful spire of St. Mary’s Church with its golden weathercock standing some 639 feet above sea level.
Painswick Church is also very famous for its 99 Yew Trees - dating back to the 18th century - which stand in the large churchyard. Some of these grow over the pathways leading from the Church in arches, creating the most stunning opportunities for photos.
The church is a short stroll of a couple of minutes through the picturesque village streets to The Painswick Centre.
The Catholic Chapel of Our Lady and St Therese is the beautiful result of many years commitment by Alice Howard and the conversion in 1931 of what had been four Tudor Cottages. Her vision was for a Catholic Chapel which would be very simple and sincere and in keeping with the Cotswold traditions of stone, wood and wrought iron.
Tucked away in a village street, it is just over the road from The Painswick Centre.

Capturing your day
Anne Marie Randall Photography
California meets classic Cotswolds is how Anne-Marie describes her photography. Having lived and worked in the Bay Area, San Francisco for almost 15 years, she is now settled in the beautiful village of Painswick with her family. Photographing your wedding day is her honour and pleasure, and she aims to capture the essence and tell the story of your day through images that you will treasure forever.
Dale Stephens Photography
Dale's style as a wedding photographer is very much documentary, although he prefers to use the term 'candid' or 'natural' as this perfectly describes the way he likes to shoot weddings. He is often asked by guests how he knows the couple as they assume he is a friend or relative!
By using a relaxed but professional approach he photographs weddings from the 'inside out' getting a guest's eye view of your wedding day, so you and your guests can feel relaxed. The result will be that you get a real feel for your day when looking back through your wedding photographs.
Mr & Mrs Productions
You will be told that your wedding day will pass in a blur, and it’s true! Painswick duo Chris + Charlotte have been filming weddings at home and abroad for the last nine years and they always bring a cinematic feel to the films they create. We highly recommend that you look at their website to see their beautiful filming style and chat with them about how they would record your wedding day for you and future generations to enjoy.
The finishing touches
Richmond Wedding Cars is a small, friendly, family run business who pride themselves on offering an exceptionally courteous service with a fine attention to detail to ensure that your day is as special as you deserve it to be. ''Your Special Day Is Our Special Day'' is their motto.
Established in 2011, they have become a flourishing and highly regarded local business, with many bookings coming from recommendations from past clients. They look forward to serving couples planning on getting married in and around the Gloucestershire area, and always look forward to visiting Painswick as Richard & Julie had their own reception at The Beacon Hall after being married at St Mary's Church.
