Le Manoir is a stunning Oxfordshire wedding venue and I’m very lucky to live so close to it in the glorious Oxfordshire countryside. It is the perfect wedding venue for an intimate wedding ceremony and reception for you and your guests. The grounds are fabulous for your wedding photography and I hear the food is pretty good too!

Buttoning up the brides dress is always a crucial moment, often when you might be running out of time. Try and allocate someone (who is calm) to do it for you and even ask them to practice beforehand. On several occasions bridesmaids have become unstuck when it comes to buttoning up a dress because they have not practiced or worried about damaging their fingernails. Understandably! The best advise I can give is to buy a crochet hook to help grip the loops that go around the button.
It’s a great tool to use for buttoning up dresses and something I have seen several mother of the brides pull from their handbag! I would suggest for every wedding photographer who reads my blog to buy one now and tuck down the side of their camera bag. It can save a lot of time and help the bride get to the church on time.
This shot was the first time I ever saw a mother of the bride use a crochet hook on the dress. The picture was taken at Taplow House Hotel
Living very close to Le Manoir in Oxfordshire I am very lucky to be able to offer wedding photography coverage at Le Manoir. It is a fabulous wedding venue in Oxfordshire and the perfect venue for a smaller wedding. As I am so local I often get enquiries for wedding at Le Manoir and photographed a lovely wedding at Le Manoir last year and will add some images soon to my wedding photography blog. In the meantime here is a bridal photography photograph from Le Manoir that I took a couple of years ago. I love the colour of the brides hair against the wisteria and look forward to working there again soon.
To see more of my wedding photography from Le Manoir and from wedding venues around Thame, Oxford, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Marlow and Henley on Thames please visit my wedding photography gallery on my website.
It’s been a while since I have worked at Stoke Place but it’s certainly one of my favourite Buckinghamshire wedding venues and only a stones throw from London. It was a real pleasure to work there again as it’s a great location to have a wedding reception. The grounds are wonderful with established parkland and a lake for the guests to enjoy the reception and pretty splendid for great wedding photography too!
The interior of this Queen Anne Manor House retains all of its old charms and features, updated with handpicked modern designer pieces giving you great backdrops for your wedding photography should the weather turn.
Laura and James’s wedding was great fun with a few moments that still make me chuckle…. Those that were there will know what I mean!
I have just posted a selection of images onto my Facebook page here so Laura and James can have a sneaky peek whilst on their honeymoon.
Here are a few of my favourite images from the day…..
