Stonor Park Wedding Photography - 001

Back in May I was very lucky to have the opportunity to photograph at Stonor Park a new wedding venue in Oxfordshire.  I arranged a shoot with MaudiKa based in Oxford and Rachel from Green & Gorgeous.

The beautiful walled gardens at the back of the house are truly the quintessential English country garden, with red brick terraces and steps, borders overflowing with frothy flowers and topiary to boot!  I can just imagine what a beautiful backdrop this would make for drinks and canapes after a wedding in the house or chapel.  It certainly offered many gorgeous backdrops to complimented Maudika’s delicate gowns and Rachel’s wonderfully wild bouquets.

I’m really looking forward to working with Maudika again soon on their new collection, can’t wait to see all the new dresses!  Thank you to Mir and Megan who were brilliant models for us and a huge thank you to Stonor Park for letting us use the grounds.

Weddings at Nether Winchenden House - 001

Nicola & Ross’s day was amazing!!!  They were married at the Church at Nether Winchenden and then the reception followed at the beautiful Nether Winchenden House just a short walk down the road.  Even though the weather was oh so typically British with a couple of drenching downpours they didn’t let it stop them from making the most of the sunshine on the terrace for drinks and family portraits.

Nicola looked amazing in her Paloma Blanca Dress and the boys looked equally dapper in their grey suits with blue ties and handkerchiefs to match Ross’s suit.  Nicola couldn’t decide on a colour for the bridesmaids dresses so they each had their own colour which i loved, if you can’t make up your mind why not have it all 🙂

Here are a few of my favourites from their day.  Congratulations Mr & Mrs Miller, I hope you enjoyed your mini moon!!!!

Laura & Peter’s wedding at the Beetle & Wedge in Mouslford was a lovely low key affair.  The Beetle & Wedge don’t cater for many weddings every year but it’s such a lovely setting I can understand why Laura & Peter choose it.  Sat on the banks of the Thames the service and food is fantastic and guests even get to order their meal from a special wedding menu.

Their ceremony was held at Reading Register Office, with the room as full as I’ve seen it, Laura & Peter entered together and it was clear to see just how happy all their family and friends were to be sharing in their celebrations.

Thanks for having me Laura & Peter, it was a real pleasure to capture your day for you.  Here are a few of my favourites from your day x

Stanlake Park Wedding - 001

Sarah & Mark were married at the beginning of September just as the leaves were starting to turn but they were blessed with a super sunny day.

Sarah got ready with her family and bridesmaids at Old Luxters Barn in the little B&B cottages, which are superb, surrounded by vineyards.  This was appropriate as they were later to have their reception at Stanlake Park Vineyard a gorgeous new wedding reception venue just outside Twyford, Berkshire.    They chose Henley Town Hall for the ceremony and shipped all their guests in by bus to save everyone the trouble of parking in the busy little town.  Henley town hall is a beautifully light room for a wedding ceremony with huge high ceilings and simple but grand decoration.

I’m going to share lots more of this wedding later but in the mean time here are a few of my favourites from the day.  Congratulations Sarah & Mark, you both looked amazing and I hope you had the day of your dreams.

If you’re planning a Stanlake Park Wedding I’d love to hear from you.

Bucks Wedding Photographer - 471

Emily and Tom’s late summer wedding at the Sir Charles Napier, near Chinnor was a real treat for the senses.  They had a blessing in a near by church and then headed to the restaurant for a champagne reception and dinner.  Photographing a Sir Charles Napier wedding was a real honour as they only host a very small number of weddings and/or parties a year.

‘OH MY GOD!!! I’ve just flicked through them twice and I’m all shaky and emotional!! They’re LOVELY! Thank you so much!! I need to just keep going through them so I can take it all in!  I’m thrilled!’

The Sir Charles Napier is a just a little bit special.  It’s a Michelin-starred pub/restaurant which serves the most divine food (I’ve been lucky enough to eat here a couple of times) but it also has the most amazingly relaxed atmosphere, aided by the décor, that allows you to feel completely at home.  Chairs and tables are an eclectic mix of shapes and styles; little vases of flowers and foliage picked from the garden (which is also gorgeous) are scattered around and then there are these simply stunning sculptor’s  by Michael Cooper. (Look out for the giant snail below.)  In the summer you can eat outside under the dappled shade of the plant adorned pergola.

Emily & Tom made the most of everything that the Sir Charles Napier had to offer.  The drinks reception took place on the lawn, so that everyone could have a chance to wander around the gardens which look out across the Oxfordshire country side and at this time of year (September) are full of late summer flowers and soft billowy grasses.  Then guests were invited to take their seats under the pergola (over which a clear marquee had been erected).  The pergola had been decorated with hundreds of fairy lights and roses dangled from ribbons.  it really did look very pretty.

Emily wore a stunning Claire Pettibone creation, I loved the huge flower at the back of her dress, so pretty and her bridesmaids looked stunning in Jenny Packham.
