Poundon House Wedding: Laura and Phil

Poundon House Wedding: Laura and Phil

My wife often previews my photos and this wedding gets the same set of comments each time she sees it, ‘that beautiful dress!’ (obviously the brides) shortly followed by ‘those beautiful dresses’ (this time the bridesmaids) and finally ‘it looks like it was such a fun day’. Although I am becoming more attuned to the world of wedding couture, they were lovely dresses, it is the final comment that makes me smile as it matches my own lasting memories of the day, it was fun! Laura and Phil are a great couple and it was such an honour to capture the celebrations of their marriage at Pounden House in Oxfordshire this year!

After traveling down to Oxford the night before, I joined Laura, her bridesmaids and parents at the beautiful Cherbridge Cottages. Where overlooked by the local wildlife, they prepared for the day in the morning sun on the balcony 🙂 Once ready, we all headed to the beautiful Church, where Phil eagerly awaited his bride! The vicar was particularly lovely, and oversaw a relaxed service. My favourite part being a couple of military ushers having fun making their presence known during the  “does anyone object” moment.

I often travel around the UK shooting weddings and enjoy the opportunity to shoot at new venues. Pounden House did not disappoint with lovely ornate rooms and beautifully manicured grounds. This Summer’s glorious weather was on hand, perfect for the marquee reception and evening party.

In the evening the dance floor was packed, The Roustabouts mixing some awesome music to get everyone out of their seats!

“Thank you so very very much – the photos are just incredible! We are completely in love with them; they are so perfect as they tell such a great story of the day and they are all such fantastic shots. You are so talented! We can’t wait to share them with everyone! “

    You did such a great job on this wedding! Just perfect- the image of the guy on the motorized buggy driving by made me laugh out loud- love it!

  3. A lot of emotions and joy here. I love the way you have shown wedding preparations and all of your B&W shots. Nicely done, Adam 🙂

    Adam, beautiful set of images. I have not looked at your site for some time but you are just getting better, every time I visit and see a new blog it’s even better than the last one. I read your interview for mirrorless lessons just interested as to how often if at all you use the Fuji and if you do what are your most used lenses. I have a wedding booked to shoot in October up your way plan to do it entirely with the XT1 (52mm f1.2) and a XE2 with a 35mm with potentially a x100s in reserve for wider shots. Any advise with the fuji would be welcome, great work best regards warren

      Hey Warren, thanks for the kind comments 🙂 I’m currently shooting with Nikon and Fuji. The only lenses I have for my XT1 are the 35mm and 18mm. I generally shoot weddings with these two lenses for the Fuji (so 27mm and 50mm ish equiv full frame) and with a 35mm and 85mm for the Nikon.

      When you say X100s is for wide frames, is that because you use the wide angle converter?. If so I’d be tempted to shoot with the X100s and the XT1. The X100s can cover the wide frames, and the XT1 can interchange between the 50 and 35mm’s. Hope that makes sense? Feel free to pop me an email if you fancy a brew when you are this way in October 🙂 Good luck!!
