WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OXFORD
No wonder Oxford is referred to as the city of dreaming spires, as even a short walk around would impress the most cynical visitor. On a warm sunny day I liken Oxford to cities such as Florence or Rome. The stunning architecture and history are clear to see and the city has a real cosmopolitan vibe to it.
The Universities date back to the 12th century and contain some incredibly unique buildings. From the Bodleian library to the Radcliffe camera and observatory, there’s something new to see around every corner. And what could be more romantic than punting a barge down the river, it’s almost like being in Venice!
The city also has it’s fair share of beautiful wedding venues from the Universities themselves to beautiful hotels such as the Randolph to smaller boutique hotels such as the The Old Parsonage and more quirky venues such as The Jam Factory. The Ashmolean museum offers civil wedding ceremonies in a variety of rooms and has a rooftop restaurant if you want to continue the party upstairs.
I have photographed at many beautiful venues in the city including Merton College, Worcester College, The Ashmolean Museum and The Jam Factory.
“There was romance in every place. But Venice, like Oxford, had kept the background for romance, and, to the true romantic, background was everything, or almost everything.” Oscar Wilde
Wedding Photography Oxfordshire
If you want to move out of the city, there are some incredible wedding venues in Oxfordshire. If, like me, you love barn venues, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Have a look at Old Luxter’s Barn, Lain’s Barn, The Great Barn, the Tythe Barn and Stratton Court Barn.
There are cosy, country pubs such as The Crown at Pishill, The Perch and The Trout Inn.
If you are looking for something quirky look no further than The Crazy Bear or if you are looking for a venue with stunning grounds you can have a look at Notley Abbey, Ardington House, Caswell House or Sulgrave Manor.
Whichever venue to decide to go for, it should be a reflection of your personality. Really great venues have atmosphere before you add your touches to it and should be a blank canvas which you can make your own.
