Karen and Mick's wedding

Karen and Mick got married in Bicester on a lovely sunny Spring afternoon. The Garth Park Registry Office looked fantastic, as did the Bignell Park Hotel and gardens. 

The hotel had made some nice alterations to their outside space since I was last there and we were able to utilise the new flowers and pergola for the formal photos.

The reception room looked terrific and I loved the details - the top of the wedding cake was a masterpiece.

I hope you enjoy looking through this selection and congratulations Mr and Mrs Backham!

Ed and Jess's Oxfordshire Wedding

It was a privilege to take Ed and Jess's wedding photos last week. They were married in St Helen's church in the centre of Abingdon. It's a stunning building, with a unconventional square layout. This provides the opportunity for some unusual and new photo angles during the service.

We were able to use the nearby Arms Houses and River Thames as backdrops for photos of the wedding couple, before moving on to the Perch at Binsey in Oxford.

The marquee reception was fantastic and with the aid of some lovely late afternoon light, we could take some more photos by the river. It's the first time I've taken Thames-side wedding photos at both the church and the reception!

The speeches were razor sharp and very funny. It was great fun capturing the guest's reactions to all the stories.

Congratulations again to the new Dr and Mrs Green!

Liam and Lauren's Cotswold Wedding

Here are a selection of Liam and Lauren's wedding photos from last week. It was nice to be back in the Gloucestershire town of Moreton in Marsh at the smart Manor House Hotel.

The weather improved just when it needed to so we could utilise the hotel grounds for group and bride / groom photos. There's a secret garden at the back of the property that provided an ideal backdrop for some of the images. 

The wedding guests included plenty of characters so it was great fun capturing them enjoying themselves!

It was brilliant to squeeze in some night shots of Liam and Lauren - they are my favourite as they are a bit different to conventional wedding photos.

It was a truly fantastic day and I hope you enjoy looking at the preview below.
