Guenièvre and Sebastian’s Oxford Wedding was very special day to be a part of. We had a lovely couples photoshoot together in 2020. I had also taken some vintage portraits of Guinèvere in 2021. Naturally, it was really exciting when they asked me to be their wedding photographer.
Natural Wedding Photography in Oxford.
Guenièvre and Sebastian’s Wedding Day began at the Dexter Room in Oxford Register Office for an intimate and touching ceremony. Following the ceremony, a short walk in the Oxford sunshine, led us to Christ Church College. The college gardens were the background for the family photos picked by the Bride and Groom.
Our couple shoot together back in 2020 was around Christ Church Meadow in Oxford. Guinèvere and Sebastian had used some photos for their wedding stationary. So, it was really special revisiting some of the same locations. After the meadows, the Bride and Groom had requested some more portraits in the historic centre of Oxford. Oxford City Centre is one of my favourite locations to work. As well as shooting weddings, I always enjoy photographing events and graduations in Oxford. This means I have lots of experience finding great locations! I also couldn’t resist a cheeky take on the traditional graduation mortar board throw.
Wedding Reception – The Costner’s House Abingdon
After the wedding portraits, the party moved to The Costners House a picturesque venue in on the banks of the Thames in Abingdon. The hotel has beautiful gardens running down to the river. These grounds were a perfect time to capture some great natural photos of everyone having a wonderful time. The speeches, in English and French, where out in the bright sunshine and were a perfect, fitting tribute to a lovely couple who are so deeply in love.
The Reception and Wedding Breakfast, with many British and French traditions. There was also a quiz about the Bride and Groom and plenty of champagne and amazing cakes!
I loved being a part of Guenièvre and Sebastian’s wedding day, and it was a joy to photograph them/
