I will start by saying that Aynhoe Park is probably my favourite wedding venue in the whole of the UK. Not only is a stunning venue with lots of visually interesting areas everywhere you look, but the staff have to be the most dedicated professionals I have ever had the pleasure of working with. With everyone focusing on delivering the Bride & Groom the perfect wedding day, it’s amazing what can be achieved.
Victoria & Sam were married on a beautiful day in August 2016. Victoria and her bridesmaids got ready in room Number Four, which was flooded with natural light and had beautiful views across the Oxford country side. As the church is literally next door to Aynhoe Park, it was just a short walk for the Bride and I was able to capture some fabulous shots of Victoria walking down the unique staircase.
After a beautiful and intimate ceremony, we had time for a fun confetti shot followed by a receiving line. I have learned to love receiving lines as everybody is so excited to get a chance to congratulate the Bride & Groom personally, and it’s a time of the day which is always filled with such emotion. I think the photos I have captured here are some of my best documentary work to date.
The rest of the day effortlessly flew by as speeches filled with humour and tears were given and first dances gave way to a party atmosphere later in the night. We also managed to sneak in a sunset shot over the Oxfordshire country side, and it really was the moment you dream of as a photographer. The light was perfect, a beautiful Bride & Groom and a stunning backdrop!
Congratulations to Victoria & Sam.
