In the Oxfordshire Countryside as a Kirtlington Park Wedding Photographer
This was my first time as a Kirtlington Park wedding photographer. It really is an amazing Oxfordshire wedding venue to photograph at. It’s a Grade I listed 18th Century Country House. It has all of the character that comes with an impressive venue like that. There were fantastic gardens and architecture around the outside of the house. Endless opportunities to make interesting compositions of the guests and wedding party. But before I could photograph there, I started with Jenny’s preparations. They were at her parents delightful cottage, a stones throw from St Laurence’s Church in Coombe.
Oxfordshire Village Church Wedding
I took a quick look at the church before the ceremony. Jenny’s fiancé, Sam was with colleagues and friends from the church, praying before the ceremony. There were a lot of clergy at the ceremony, and later at the reception, which made for some great pictures. Once the preparations were complete, Jenny and her Father walked the very short distance to the church where Sam was waiting. A wonderful ceremony with some great readings before the guests gathered to wave the newly weds off on their way to the reception at Kirtlington Park.
A Vintage Bus Ride to the Country Manor House
The arrival there, by vintage double decker bus, really was a memorable view as the house appeared through the bus windscreen. Canapes and drinks were waiting, along with some lawn games for the guests. I made sure to photograph the amazing floral decorations, provided by Sam’s professional florist Mother. After the meal and speeches, a little entertainment came in the form of Magic Circle magician Dominick, who kept everyone amused. My coverage ended after Dominick’s fantastic show, as the celebrations began to wind down.
