An Oxfordshire country house wedding in the summer sun
Steve and Becky held their lovely Oxfordshire country house wedding in June 2016, at the lovely location of Poundon House. If you are unfamiliar with the location, Poundon House is a family run country house in the Oxfordshire countryside, close to Bicester. It has lovely grounds, a large marquee and is one of those venues where a wedding party can take it over for themselves. As documentary wedding photographers, its one of our favourite venues; its exclusivity and sole use as a wedding venue means we can wander around unobtrusively and capture those moments without interfering or inconveniencing guests at other events. It really is a high class wedding venue where nothing is too much trouble for their guests. On this lovely June day, Steve and Becky were able to have their wedding ceremony outside, allowing for the fact that in the UK the legal part of the proceeding must take place within an enclosure; in this case, a door frame to the main building. This meant for a slightly unusual shooting position for me, as I couldn't stand in my usual spot behind the registrar; instead I had to stand to the side. Samantha was in her usual spot at the back of the proceedings. The ceremony was touching and lovely, and the rest of the day carried on in the same way. Highlight for me was the girlfriend of an usher catching Becky's bouquet and proceeding to sprint to the marquee (with me in hot pursuit!) to her partner in an attempt to get him to propose. You can see the sequence of events below in the selection of photos from the day.
Poundon House is a fantastic wedding venue and we look forward to working there again in 2017.
