A Wedding at Notley Tythe Barn, Joanne & Geoff A Sneak Peek

You can plan every detail of your wedding but the one thing you have no control over is the weather. Just because you book a wedding in June doesn’t mean that you can guarantee back to back sunshine…..but when can we with the British weather?! Joanne & Geoff’s day was still full of sunny smiles & happiness despite the weather!JGF-ML-MLP15355-203We photographed their wedding at the lovely Notley Tythe Barn near Long Crendon.

As I got back they were doing the speeches so I whipped the camera out & took a few of the laughs & emotions. I then took Joanne & Geoff outside for some shots of the two of them. We couldn’t go to far afield as the ground was so wet but I am really pleased with the images I took of them in the wonderful rural setting of the barn.JGF-ML-MLP15327-197 JGF-ML-MLP15344-201 JGF-ML-MLP15357-204 JGF-ML-MLP15406-212 JGF-ML-MLP15412-214 JGF-ML-MLP15472-223I left the couple enjoying the rest of their wedding day.

Sophie & Paul – A Sneak Peek!

Sophie & Paul’s wedding was held on a beautiful sunny afternoon in July. It was a real family affair & they celebrated it with their children including baby Alice.

SPO-ML-LORD8550-12

Their wedding was held in the parish church of St John the Baptist in the riverside village of Moulsford followed by a reception at The Pavillion in the village. It was a lovely day of celebrations, they also celebrated Alice’s christening & Paul’s 40th birthday all on the same day.

SPO-ML-LORD8510-2

Kiti & I both started the day at the church. We took some images of the guests arriving before Sophie, Paul & the children arrived.

SPO-ML-LORD8581-18

The church wwas very strict regarding images of the service but we able to take some lovely ones of Alice being christened.

SPO-ML-LORD8619-31

After the service the guest made the short trip to The Pavillion whilst I did some lovely shots of the happy couple in the countryside.

SPO-ML-LORD8970-82

Their reception was a lovely afternoon tea party which was enjoyed by all ages before the children all ran towards the playground.

SPO-ML-LORD9136-119 SPO-ML-LORD9439-198Sophie, Paul & family – we hope you enjoy your sneak peek. Wishing you every happiness for your future together!

Alex and Marie – A Sneak Peek

The day shone bright & clear the morning of Alex & Marie’s wedding as Kiti & I headed up the M40 to The Tythe Barn, Launton near Bicester.

AMB-ML-IMG_0494-109

The Tythe Barn is one of my favourite venues whatever the weather but it really comes into its own when the sun is shining & people can use the outside space.

AMB-ML-IMG_1032-243 AMB-ML-IMG_1025-241I met with Marie at The Nook to get some shots of her, her closest girlfriends & her Dad & Brother. I took the opportunity to get out in the sunshine & took some lovely photos in the hidden courtyard.

AMB-ML-IMG_0118-24

 

The light was lovely & Marie looked beautiful with her short style dress with lace overlay. I love the shock of colour from her bouquet which contained freesia, ranunculus, anemones & one of the funkiest of flowers craspedia otherwise know as billy balls or billy buttons.

AMB-ML-IMG_0134-29

After the short walk through the garden to the barn it was time for Alex & Marie become husband & wife.

AMB-ML-IMG_0214-45

They left the barn in a flurry of confetti.

AMB-ML-IMG_0312-81These are one of those moments as a photographer that you only have one chance to nail it. You can’t really say just as everyone has thrown their fistful of confetti ‘Excuse me can we try that again!’ I am really pleased with this shot, great expressions, fantastic flurry of confetti & I love the sun flare across the lens.

After the ceremony Kiti & I took the bride & groom off for a few shots around the grounds – always a nice time for the bride & groom to take a moment from the madness of the day.

AMB-ML-IMG_0452-100 Once the lovely couple returned to the barn it was time for them to re-join their guests as the celebrations continued…….including a drum solo from the groom!

We hope you enjoy your sneak peek Alex & Marie. Wishing you every happiness!

 

Emma & Paul – A Sneak Peek

We’ve had some lovely spring weather recently but we were disappointed to wake up to rain on the morning of Emma & Paul’s wedding. Luckily the rain soon passed & the sun shone on their day. Apparently it is lucky to have rain on your wedding day!

EPM-ML-IMG_8477-200

Emma & Paul’s wedding was in the beautiful city of Oxford & our day started by making sure we had the locations & routes for the wedding as we would spend most of the day on foot.

EPM-KS-IMG_2744-35

I love a classic military wedding & as Paul is a Navy Pilot he was wearing formal ceremonial uniform. Kiti met Paul at the hotel to get some shots of him getting ready before walking with him & the men to the ceremony. There was, of course, a quick pit stop at a pub for a swift drink or two!

EPM-KS-IMG_2684-28

You will notice that a furry friend accompanied the men. Jessie is Paul & Emma’s much loved dog & she played an important part in their day. She was brilliantly behaved throughout & was a credit to them.

EPM-ML-IMG_8435-195

I went to Emma’s mums house to meet the bridal party & to capture some getting ready shots of the bride & bridesmaids. It’s always a lovely part of the day to see everyone getting into their finery & starting off the day with a glass or two of champagne!

EPM-ML-IMG_7735-55It was soon time for Emma to make the short journey to meet her groom. Paul & Emma’s wedding was held at Emma’s old school St Edward’s in Oxford & the ceremony held in the beautiful chapel in the grounds.

EPM-ML-IMG_7946-93

The quandrant gave me some lovely opportunities for some stylish bride & groom shots & it was really interesting to use the architecture of the old building.

EPM-ML-IMG_8606-216 Emma & Paul had decorated the reception room with wonderful blossom trees that looked beautiful. They really added height to the floral decoration & certainly had a wow factor for all the guests entering the room!

EPM-ML-IMG_8794-236

After the wedding breakfast & speeches it was time for everyone to hit the dancefloor. As always Kiti & I left them all boogying the night away!

EPM-ML-IMG_9417-400

Emma & Paul – hope you love your sneak peek as much as we do! Wishing you every happiness for your future together

Nichola & Matthew – A Sneak Peek

Recently I photographed the wedding of Nichola & Matthew at Oakley Court.

262-MNG-ML-IMG_5109-194

Its always lovely to be booked through recommendation & even better when its by one of my previous brides & grooms. Several years ago I photographed the wedding of Matthew’s sister Suzanne & it was lovely to see her & her husband Kirk with their family celebrating her brother’s wedding.

Now back to Nichola & Matthew’s day. It was a really lovely family day & they had some very important people in their wedding party. Matthew was ably assisted by his pageboy, their son Chase & Nichola was attended to by their daughter Daisy as bridesmaid. Having their children take part in their day was lovely & offered some fantastic photo opportunities. I particularly love this shot of Matthew & Chase looking cool in their special socks taken by Kiti.

084-MNG-KS-IMG_1844-45

The whole wedding party got ready at Oakley Court, near Windsor before taking the short stroll to The Windsor Suite for the ceremony.

106-MNG-ML-IMG_4256-62

 Oakley Court is a magnificent Victorian Gothic mansion, which is set amidst 33 acres of landscaped gardens, which go down to the banks of the River Thames. So after the ceremony & formal, & not so formal, group shots I took the bride & groom away to get some shots of the two of them together. I love the stylish shots of them on the pontoon.

214-MNG-ML-IMG_4749-146 We then left the river & we used the architecture of the historic building. I loved it when the Bride offered to climb into a trolley basket!

227-MNG-ML-IMG_4867-159 229-MNG-ML-IMG_4877-161 It was then time for the bride & groom to return to their guests for the wedding breakfast & speeches.

331-MNG-ML-IMG_5292-244When photographing little ones it is always good to catch them when they are in the mood & during dinner I got some lovely shots of them as pageboy & bridesmaid.

320-MNG-ML-IMG_5276-236 After dinner, it was time for the evening guests to arrive & as always Kiti & l Ieft everyone on the dancefloor.

391-MNG-ML-IMG_5447-290

Nichola, Matthew, Daisy & Chase – we hope you love your sneak peek. Wishing you all a very happy future together…

Claire & Richard – A Sneak Peek

Last Saturday saw the wedding of Claire & Richard. Their ceremony was in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Somerton in the quaint village church St James.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, Launton It was a bright spring morning as the guests gathered in the church decorated with lovely pew ends of spring flowers in glass jars.

Kiti & I took the opportunity before the brides arrival to get some shots of the groom, best man & ushers in the village & churchyard.

Then it was time for the groom to take his place before the bride arrived with her Dad.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, Launton Claire arrived at the church in a vintage Rolls Royce clutching a beautiful bouquet by the very talented Flower Fairies. The stunning springtime bouquet made up from whites roses, brunia, eucalyptus, grape hyacinths, pussy willow & wax flowers.

After a lovely service Richard & Claire left in the sunshine to make the short journey to The Tythe Barn, Launton for the wedding reception.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, Launton As always, I took the opportunity to take the bride & groom away from their guests for a little while to take some shots of the couple around the grounds of the barn.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, LauntonThe Tythe Barn have recently installed a crash pad for the bride & groom, a shepherds hut with, of course, one or two touches of luxury! Decorated in their normal chic style it really is a fabulous place for the bride & groom to stay after the party is over. Claire & Richard are my first couple to stay there so we made sure to get some shots of them outside the hut.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, Launton After we returned the couple to their guests it was time for the wedding breakfast, banquet style. It looks so beautiful all laid up & really adds to the celebratory atmosphere.

Wedding Photography The Tythe Barn, Launton

Music was supplied by Gigz Management who are suppliers of fantastic bands, dj’s, string quartets & much more. The band called Bring the Party were just fabulous & soon got everyone up on the dance floor.  We left them boogying the night away with their guests very envious of their night of luxury in the shepherds hut!

We hope you love you sneak peek, Claire & Richard – lots more to follow soon! Wishing you every happiness for your future lives together….




















































Amy & Tom – A Sneak Peek

Wedding season is truly underway at Mark Lord Photography & last weekend Kiti & I travelled to the lovely village of Evenley in Northamptonshire for the wedding of Amy & Tom.

Wedding Photography Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon

Kiti started her day with the groom at his family home in Evenley & I was with the bridal party getting some preparation shots before making the journey to the church. Its always an exciting part of the day & I always love the moment that Mum & Dad see their daughter in her wedding dress.

I love this shot of Amy & her Mum enjoying a moment before she walks into church on the arm of her dad.

Wedding Photography Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon After a lovely service we made our way to Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon near the border of Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire. The barn is in lovely countryside & offers some rural backdrops for some great couple shots.

Our bride even made a play on her maiden name & wore a bright yellow pair of Hunter wellies around the farm!

Wedding Photography Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon

After a wander around the farm it was time for the bride & groom to mingle with their guests before making their entrance into the wedding breakfast.

Wedding Photography Notley Tythe Barn, Long Crendon

As always Kiti & I were quite the Cinderella’s & left everyone on the dancefloor!
