:: Alex & Jung Hwa’s Cherwell Boathouse Wedding ::
What a stunning day it was back in June for punting leisurly down the Thames, to arrive at your Wedding reception and be greeted by all your friends & family!
My morning started at The Oxford Hotel, meeting up with Alex & Jung Hwa for a few preparation photos, before heading off into the heart of Oxford, to the magnificent setting of University Church of St Mary’s in Rad Cam Square. With sunlight bursting through the church windows, the ceremony was enchanting with the resounding sound of the church choir. As guests mingled after the ceremony, I took Alex & Jung Hwa for a short stroll around the square before heading back for a large group shot of all the guests. I must admit, after clambering about half way up of the tight, twisting, narrow staircase of St Mary’s tower, I was slightly regretting my decision to offer to shoot the whole wedding group shot from up there – but wow! All that leg burn was worth the effort to get such a unique view!
The Cherwell Boathouse was the venue chosen to host their wedding reception, a very scenic location down by the River Thames with such a relaxed & friendly atmosphere for guests to drink, chat & relax before the Wedding breakfast barbecue started. A speedy bicycle rickshaw journey across town and Alex had arranged the surprise for all the guests – their grand entrance by punt. Alex you are very a very brave man indeed! The party got into full swing, food, drink and a few entertaining speeches later it was time to depart, such a memorable day, I loved it all!
