Paul and Jo - Witney Lakes Resort

Paul and Jo married at the Witney Lakes Resort in November this year.  It was the first indoor wedding I have photographed at this venue, and boy was I pleased for an indoor option, it was a little wet!!

The service was gorgeous, and luckily the weather improved immediately following the ceremony, so everyone was able to make the most of the lovely lakeside grounds.  Disney loving Jo had an obvious theme for her table decorations, and they decorated with style! Amazing sparkly coaches as centre pieces, Minnie and Mickey cake topper on top of an amazing palace decorated cake, the list goes on!

The reception was perfect, it was one big party with everyone dancing and having great fun.  It was the perfect day for this lovely couple.

Sarah and Brian - Oxford City Centre.

Sarah and Brian married a few days before we met, but were having a big party that evening so took the opportunity to have some wedding portraits taken whilst dressed up.  They looked fantastic and I really enjoyed spending time with them whilst photographing the couple around Oxford.

Lucy and Chris - Bicester Registry Office.

Lucy and Chris contacted me only a couple of weeks before their wedding and I was honoured to be a part of their special ceremony.  I don't often photograph weddings at Bicester Registry office anymore, however it's such a lovely venue!  And to add to it's beauty, it was a gorgeous autumn day, with a lovely yellow light cast on the Garth gardens.

I was only with the couple for a couple of hours, but it was clear how in love they are and how much they are loved by their close family too.   I wish them every luck and all the best for their future.

Rosalind and Gavin - Cherwell Boat House, Summertown

Ros and Gavin married in the beautiful St Aloysius Church in central Oxford, a stunning church with sculptures surrounding the alter.  I tend to photograph from the back of this church to make the most of the beautiful setting, which also means I get a lovely perspective of the wedding.

Following the wedding I joined Ros and Gavin at Wolfson College in Oxford for some Bride and Groom photographs, which was a great location for some gorgeous garden shots and some time for the couple to spend time together before making our way to the venue next door, Cherwell Boat House, for their evening reception.

I love this venue, it's very cute for smaller weddings and has the option of using a conservatory area or the lower barn (when water levels are low enough).  Ros and Gavin made the most of both options, which was great for them as they had a large wedding party; Ros treated Gavin to the most amazing rap (well rehearsed during Bridal preparations), much to the shock and enjoyment of their guests. Then a reggae band took them into the wee hours of the morning.
