Last week we travelled into Oxford for the wedding of Jane & Andy.The weather as we set off wasn’t great but we had great hopes of it clearing as the day went on. We had reccee’d the venue a couple of days before & had worked out the logistics. When doing any wedding, but particularly in a city centre, it is really important that we have worked out how to get from a to b. To make sure we are there to capture all the important things that happen & not trying to park the car!We were dropped off at Rhodes House, which is a hidden delight right in the middle of Oxford. It looks rather like a large Cotswold Manor & has some fantastic architecture. It has been a gathering place for Rhodes Scholars for many years but is now available for weddings.Kiti & I met with Andy the groom & his best man Nick. We used the fantastic architecture of the building get some original photos of Andy before his bride arrived.By now the guests were gathering & it was time for the bride to arrive. Jane arrived with her Dad in his beautiful MG, especially restored for the day & I managed to capture a shot as Dad zoomed past – I love the proud smile on his face!The ceremony was lovely in the beautiful Jameson room in front of the large windows.After the service we went into the gardens, which were beautiful to do some stylish shots of the bride & groom.Now it was time for Kiti & I to join the guests on the bus to make the short hop to The Cherwell Boathouse to await the bride & groom. Due to the weather, earlier in the day Jane & Andy thought they may be arriving by car but it was great that the weather had improved enough that they could arrive by their preferred method of transport…….a punt!After a drinks reception on the banks of the Cherwell it was time for the guests to join Jane & Andy in the marquee for the wedding breakfast & speeches.
It was now time for Jane & Andy to have their first dance before they were joined by their guests on the dancefloor.As always Kiti & I left everyone having fun…..
We hope you enjoy your sneak peek Jane & Andy. Wishing you every happiness!
