We are so delighted to see Nicola and Peter’s fragrant pink garden wedding at Le Manoir published in Brides Magazine! Their wedding in the romantic walled gardens of this stunning Oxford wedding venue exuded a soft elegance that stole our hearts. The editorial team loved our couple’s use of dusky peaches and pinks that complimented the English garden setting. Loose and textured florals added to the relaxed yet luxurious vibe of the day. Our beautiful couple stole the show followed closely by Nicola’s racehorse who made a guest appearance on the day. It is such an honour to see our work published and we are so appreciative to our fabulous couples who are a very big part in making this happen. You can see Nicola and Peter’s Le Manoir wedding in the May/June 2017 issue of Brides Magazine or see more from their wedding on our journal!

For our final I Do’s of 2016 we had the honour of photographing Nada and James’s Barnsley House destination wedding. It was a beautiful and intimate occasion. Although Nada and James hail from Scotland and Oman they first met at school in the faraway reaches of South Africa. Both have since lived all across the world and have formed close friendships wherever they have been. This therefore was the perfect occasion to get everyone together for an unforgettable celebration. James and Nada currently reside in Kathmandu and decided to bring the flavours of Nepal to the Cotswold countryside. Their shared love of music was also infused into the day. Culture and music created a magical atmosphere for Nada and James’s romantic Barnsley House wedding. Amidst all the pretty what stood out the most was the spirit of kindness and depth of character that both Nada and James shared. We wish these two beautiful souls a lifetime of happiness and love together…

“She walks in beauty, like the night. Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright. Meet in her aspect and her eyes…” -Byron.

Nicola and Peter’s Le Manoir Oxfordshire wedding was bursting with beauty in detail and heart. From our gorgeous couple who said I do, to our Bride’s stunning race horse Max who made a surprise appearance. Then of course there is the romance of the setting, the never-ending florals and personalised touches that permeated the day. We could not think of a more magical way to celebrate a marriage.

We only met Nicki and Tom the week before their wedding. As we recognised each other at Calcot Manor it felt like meeting old friends. Since January countless phone and Skype calls between the UK and Australia had taken place. Each conversation taking indulgently longer than it should as we chatted away about the wedding plans, life and everything in between. We would be having our first morning cuppa in the Cotswolds while Nicki and Tom would be back at their home in Manley after work or yoga practice. Each email from Nicki was excitedly opened. Usually revealing some secret or surprise that Tom or their guests had in store! We were completely beguiled by the vision for their destination wedding in the Cotswolds. Mostly the generosity of spirit with which this couple lived life resonated with us deeply. Their Calcot Manor summer wedding unfolded as fabulously as expected. In person Nicki and Tom were even more warm hearted and fun! Nicola and Tom, we are so thankful our paths crossed with yours. Witnessing your love for life and each other has left us completely inspired…

Cufflinks made from watch mechanisms were Tom’s gift to each Groomsmen.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Tom in turn had his own surprise from Nicki…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

…An amazing Panerai watch!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Tom and the guys looked very stylish in light grey suits and playful black and white ties.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki’s bridal style was oh so romantic; her Charlotte Mills shoes even had a poem inscribed on the sole!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After months of internet stalking we were most excited to see our Bride’s Moira Hughes dress!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Every aspect was exquisite. From the subtly embossed Italian bodice…to the dramatic bow and raw silk skirt.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki’s beautiful Bridesmaids were by her side all the way; true friends and cheerleaders to our Bride.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Nicki is an avid reader of our journal and heeded all our advice on timings for the morning…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Careful planning meant everyone had time to enjoy themselves AND we got to capture photos like this!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

There are so many wonderful moments to capture…like receiving a beautiful necklace from your husband to be!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We loved the romantic and delicate details inspired by nature that permeated the day.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Vintage cars transported everyone to the nearby Church in Hawkesbury Upton.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Mist and rain created a sense of atmosphere and a muddy car park invoked a spirit of adventure!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

With horse traffic to contend with too the setting could not have been more idiosyncratically English.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Our Bride made her way up the old stone aisle of St Mary’s on her Father’s arm.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Where Nicki and Tom were became husband and wife!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We love those first few moments when our couple emerge from the Church as newlyweds.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

The joy of the occasion is completely infectious…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

And everyone joins in the celebration as confetti is thrown with enthusiastic abandon!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Rain could not deter these two as Nicki and Tom made their way back to Calcot Manor…

Whose reaction when the surprise Mariachi Band turned up hats and all was just the best!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

The Mariachi Men created an instant party atmosphere with their festive and lively performance!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

No one held back from enjoying what must be the best wedding surprise we have ever seen!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After formal family photos and while guests enjoyed the band it was time for bride and groom portraits.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

When it comes to having a good time Nicki and Tom certainly nailed the brief!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

They really wanted photos that made the most of the breathtaking views at Calcot Manor…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

It was however our gorgeous couple (and that stunning veil!) that made the vista.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After portraits it was back to the mariachi, pisco sours and champagne!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Everyone made their way to the beautifully styled Barn for the Wedding Breakfast to commence!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Our couple commissioned the very talented watercolor artist Harriet de Winton to create their paper goods.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Including a bespoke watercolor table plan on canvas inspired by the beaches in Sydney that our couple love.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Lisa Elliott Floral Design created a statement in the Barn at Calcot Manor with a hanging wreath installation.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

A lavender and fern wreath motif wove through the details including the handpainted cake by Curtis & Co.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Guests enjoyed a delicious three course dinner created by the talented Calcot Manor chefs.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Which was followed by animated and heartfelt speeches.

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

We stole away to catch the sunset…

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

Before heading back to the conservatory at Calcot Manor where Nicki and Tom cut their exquisite cake!

calcot-manor-summer-wedding-photo________P I NSite Image

After that there was no delay in getting the dancing started and a party that would last well into the night.

Suzanne and Graham’s marquee wedding at their beautiful home in  the West Sussex countryside exuded luxury and fun. We loved capturing all the atmosphere of their fabulous celebrations and were thrilled to produce a wedding album for them too. Our couple chose an impressive 18 x 12 inch Queensberry wedding album. A sumptuous leather cover in Eggshell suited the all white styling of their wedding. A square front cover motif with a black edge added a sophisticated personal touch to the album. For the design style Suzanne and Graham opted for the dynamic flushmount option, where the photographs are printed directly onto the pages. This contemporary look suited the setting for their celebrations. See a glimpse of their gorgeous wedding album below!

“If I had a flower for every time I thought of you … I could walk through my garden forever.” ― Alfred Tennyson

The day David asked Atiya to marry him he literally led her down the garden path for a most romantic proposal. On an unsuspecting weekend visiting Atiya’s mother, at her beautiful home in the Wiltshire countryside, David suggested they go for a walk. Under the premise that it was to help Atiya train for an upcoming 100 kilometre hike no suspicions were aroused. When they however reached the Greek Pagoda, one of their favourite spots on the grounds to visit, Atiya was met with a heart melting surprise. The pagoda was covered in peonies and candles and inside she found her favourite champagne. With the scene set for something special David popped the question and of course Atiya said yes!

Sarah and Scott’s paths crossed when they were both working for the same company. Scott was the IT guy and Sarah’s computer happened to be going wrong, quite a lot! Scott was receiving about 3 to 5 IT calls from Sarah every week so they were bound to meet. And after that, phone support swiftly turned to desk support! Nearly a decade later these two soulmates are celebrating their love with a Barnsley House wedding this summer…

“To roam the roads of lands remote, To travel is to live.” – Hans Christian Andersen

Sarah had no idea when she left America and came to London for business school the life she would discover and create. A Seattle native used to weather not dissimilar from England, Sarah soon felt at home and decided she would stay. Unexpectedly travelling abroad brought so many gifts.

“You don’t find love, it finds you. It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate, and what’s written in the stars.” – Anais Nin

Anneka and Ben meeting one another must have been written in the stars. Their paths crossed because of a rather serendipitous decision. When Anneka asked a friend to set her up on a date she was presented with the choice of two Bens. To make the decision she only had one name, the slightest of biographies and a questionable photo to go on. Luckily Anneka chose the right Ben for the date! The rest as they say is history as these two beautiful people are getting married in the Oxfordshire countryside later this month.

Anneka and Ben chose the historic University town of Oxford for their engagement session.

This city, with its ancient spires and cobbled streets, is where they both live and work.
