Styled shoot with IPPN - Eynsham Hall, Witney

During the summer I co-hosted a styled shoot day at Eynsham Hall with members of IPPN (a professional photographers networking forum). It was a fantastic day with collaboration from talented photographers.  I spent the majority of the day running around make sure the models were dressed, made up, fed and watered, but managed a few sneaky photographs between takes!

Professional Head Shots, Oxford

Thomaz contacted me to photograph some professional head shots for his CV and LinkedIn profile, so we went out into Woodstock to capture some images.  He was at ease with having his photograph taken so we captured a great selection for him.

Anne-Marie and Lawrence - St Aloysius Church, Oxford

Anne-Marie and Lawence married at St Aloysius Church in Oxford, a beautiful church set off St Giles and Woodstock Road in central Oxford.  It's a breathtakingly beautiful venue, with these incredible ornate sculptures at the front of the church which provide a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony.

Anne-Marie wore a cute mid-length dress and had striking orange flowers. It was perfect for a non-traditional twist.

The reception was held at St Hilda's college, one of the few Oxford Universities you can marry at without having attended the college. So we walked over, stoping at Merton College with the family for some photographs, where Lawrence attended University.

The day was perfect in every way, from the guests to the weather.

A Family Photo Shoot - Bicester

I met up with this gorgeous family in a woodland near Bicester to photograph some special photographs for their grandparents wedding anniversary.  The four photographed are cousins with an obviously special bond, so photographing them was a pure pleasure.

Angela and Mike - Convocation House and Ashmolean Museum, Oxford

Angela and Mike booked me to photograph their wedding just a few weeks before the ceremony took place, and I was so excited to hear that it was in Convocation House, part of the Bodleian Library in Oxford.  I adore this venue, the lighting is superb and it's so romantic!  

We had some time after the ceremony to walk around Radcliffe Square before taking a walk down to the Ashmolean Museum, where their reception was taking place in the roof top cafe. You only need to look at the couple's cake to see what a fun and adorable couple they are. It was an honour to photograph their wedding.
