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! “
