Josie & Callum | Middle Aston House Wedding

Josie and Callum’s Harry Potter themed wedding started with Josie & her bridesmaids getting ready at home, so I joined them there for some getting ready photos.

Make up was by Jennifer Grayburn, and hair by Emma from Kenny’s Hair Boutique.

The beautiful flowers were by Georgina at Nicholson Nurseries.

Josie really did look stunning

Josie’s dress & veil was from Banbury Bridal Boutique and Bridesmaid dresses from Marks & Spencer.

The ceremony was at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Bicester on a very hot day in early June (they were lucky – it rained for 2 weeks non-stop after this!!)

The men’s suits were from Victor Boss

Josie’s wedding ring was from Rosalyn’s Emporium, and Callum’s from Tiffany & Co.

Josie arrived in a lovely vintage Rolls Royce (called Brum) with her Dad – the car was from Allerston Taylor & Regency Carriages.

The Marilla String Quartet played before the ceremony and during the signing of the register.

Josie, her mum & cousin Melanie made the confetti themselves by getting friends & family to collect rose petals.

And the Rolls took them to Middle Aston House in the Oxfordshire countryside for their reception

A stunning location, with beautiful grounds and a lake for guests to enjoy

They really went to town with the Harry Potter theme – Josie & Callum did all the venue styling themselves, and it looked amazing with such attention to detail. The chair covers were from Dean’s Chair Covers & Events.

There was a slight incident with a football being kicked in to the lake – luckily there was a rowing boat on hand, and despite it’s slightly squiffy rowers, they managed to rescue the ball!

Josie & Callum’s wedding was on the same day as the Champion’s League final, so as Callum is a big Spurs fan – they had that on a big screen. Unfortunately it didn’t work out for Callum and his Spurs fans…

But he didn’t let that spoil the fun evening!

The cake was by The Barefoot Bakery

The DJ was Bluemark Entertainment

What a fabulous day!

Cotswold Wedding Photography: Roundup of 2018

As we start 2019, I’ve done a roundup of my Cotswold Wedding Photography in 2018 and here is a very small selection of all the wonderful weddings I was privileged to photograph last year.

We had some quite extreme weather thrown at us, with The Beast from the East (which kept coming back) in the Spring, and the hottest summer on record turning green grass yellow.

I was back at lots of my favourite local venues and also at some fabulous new ones, and after photographing over 40 weddings I am now enjoying a quieter January & February before the fun starts again!

Some of my most local venues are Blackwell Grange in Shipston on Stour, and the amazing Hyde House in Stow-on-the-Wold. One of my favourite churches to photograph is St. James Church in Chipping Campden. I love The Manor House Hotel in Moreton-in-Marsh, Charingworth Manor, and was excited to photograph my first wedding at the fabulous new venue Lapstone Barn also in Chipping Campden.

2017 Cotswold Wedding Photography

Here is a selection from some of the wonderful weddings I photographed in and around the Cotswolds in 2017. We enjoyed all the different weather Britain has to offer: beautiful sunshine, thunder & lightening, snow, torrential rain, showers, fog, sunsets….all of which added to the couples’ wedding day and made it their own.

There were bouncy castles, space hoppers, sparklers, boat trips, snow machines, rottweilers with flower garlands (well, just one of those). Three different castles, barns, manor houses, marquees, and churches of course. Camper vans, horse & carriage, wedding cars.

All of them were huge fun to photograph and thank you to all the lovely couples who booked me. Looking forward to a another wedding packed year ahead in 2018!
