wedding merton college
“Lee has just come to the US for a short visit and brought our wedding album. I was able to hold and look at it and remember all the beautiful moments that swirled past on our special day. I just wanted to say thank you. The album is beautiful and the photo’s are incredible.” – Suzanne Holsomback


When I first met Suzanne and Lee in a little coffee shop I felt an instant connection with them. Lee has a great sense of humour and Suzanne with her soft Texan accent, I knew I wanted to shoot their wedding. These two have overcome many obstacles in thir relationship already so I know they have an amazingly strong foundation to build on. Their intimate Merton College wedding really summed up their style, fun, relaxed and just how they wanted it. This was the first time I had photographed a wedding at Merton College. It really is such a beautiful building with depth and soul and the grounds are just stunning. It never ceases to amaze me that just behind the college doors you are taken into a magical, peaceful place away from the hustle and bustle of the busy Oxford streets.

I truly loved the colour scheme and Suzanne’s yellow shoes and flowers were a beautiful hint of her Texan roots. They added so many special little touches to their day. Whilst there may not have been the usual line up of speeches and dancing there was lots of fun and lots of love in the room. Here are some of my favourites from the day.
