If you have any questions that are not covered here, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to help!
When should I arrive/depart?
Where should I stay?
What should I do?
We suggest arriving no later than Friday evening, September 8, in order to join us at the Welcome reception before the wedding on Saturday, September 9th. If you are stopping by for the Recovery Brunch on Sunday, September 10, plan to request a late check-out that morning if you want to depart the Cotswolds that afternoon. Full details of all events are on the Weekend Events page so you can plan your travel accordingly.
Please reference the "Where to Stay" page to select your accommodations. We have options ranging from cottages for groups, B&B for something casual and cozy, and luxury for those who need a bit of comfort and style.
We've created this Google Maps as a resource for those looking to check out more of the Cotswolds Villages and surrounding area!
Will transportation be provided?
How should I get from the airport to the Cotswolds?
What's the best way to get around the Cotswolds?
Is there parking at Sudeley Castle?
All of our wedding activities will be within a 15-20 minute drive and accessible via Taxis/Uber app, but there will likely be shuttles to/from the Welcome events on Friday, September 8. More information to come.
If traveling directly to the Cotswolds from the airport, we recommend booking a car transfer service in advance. See the "Getting to the Cotswolds" page for more information and suggested companies.
While Uber is available in the area, it can be difficult to connect to drivers in the countryside. Please see the "Once You're There" page for suggested local Taxi companies.
Sudeley Castle offers free on-site parking (address below). If you choose to drive to the Castle for the wedding, you can leave your car overnight and come back after 10:00am the next day to collect it by going through the Visitors Centre to gain access.

What should I pack?
Are events taking place on grass?
What is considered Black Tie attire?
Most events will take place in an outdoor (covered) space, so it's recommended to bring a shawl or light jacket with you to the events as the English summer evenings can be chilly.
Some events will involve grass or uneven surfaces (gravel pathways, cobblestone etc.). Ladies, please keep this in mind when selecting your footwear.
Black tie is long dresses/gowns for ladies and tuxedos or suits for gentlemen. Pinterest board for formal attire inspiration coming soon.
What can I expect?
Even if you've never been to the UK, you're probably already familiar with stereotypical British weather (temperate and rainy). But a glorious sunny summer's day in the English countryside is unlike any other (manifesting blue skies!). If we're being technical, the average temperature for September is 65º F (18º C) with chilly evenings. Most events will take place outside (weather permitting) so best to check the forecast in advance.
Can I bring a plus one?
We'd love to give all of our guests the chance to let their hair down without having to worry about little eyes and ears, so we politely request no babies or children at the wedding events.
Regretfully, due to venue limitations, we are only able to accommodate those named on the invitations.

International travel support?
We know international travel is a lift and would love to make things easier on our guests however possible. We can direct you to several resources which are useful for finding affordable transatlantic fares. We would also be happy to help coordinate individuals/couples bunking up in the cottages to make things more cost-effective, so we strongly encourage you to email us (email@example.com) for travel support. UpLift or Affirm are both great options when it comes to financing expenses such as flights comfortably, allowing you to buy early and pay over time.
