Oxford on a summers day, a pretty wonderful location for a wedding. Last summer I was delighted to cover Kathleen and Pedro’s wedding held at Oxford registry office and then onto Pembroke college for much celebrating.
The registry office in Oxford has to been one of the finest in the country, the ceremony room is beautiful which is what you would expect for such a picturesque city. Plus its right in the center which is a dream for a documentary wedding photographer.
Kathleen prepared for her day at Oxford’s Malmasion, a pretty amazing building in itself a converted prison! Kathleen< was in the governors room a two level sanctuary which gave me a really unique angle for capture her dress lying (quite literally) ready to go on.
Pedro and Kathleen being Alumni of Pembroke knew Oxford well and wanted to walk the short distance through the city after their ceremony to their reception. Which suited me down to the ground, we got some amazing photos as we walked through the streets on a busy Saturday afternoon.
On to the reception then, the quad inside Pembroke is beautiful and the bride and groom had chosen to have a jazz band filling the air with happy tunes. It was a lovely summers day so perfect in wedding reception terms.
The wedding breakfast itself was a really jovial affair, drinks we certainly flowing and I’m not sure I’ve heard so many toasts demanding everyone drink before the speeches even started. Defiantly a great wedding for all concerned.
It was an absolute pleasure to photograph.
