Stunning venue, two wedding ceremonies, a wonderful couple, amazing weather, beautiful sunset = priceless!
Oh what a fabulous day was had at Natasha & Olivers Ardington House Wedding back in May this year. Ardington House is a beautiful Georgian mansion set it beautiful surroundings with a jaw dropping view across the Oxfordshire countryside from the bridal suite. Natasha & Oliver chose Ardington House for “that quintessential English Country Mansion look” as most of their wedding guests had travelled far and wide to be there and they weren’t disappointed! I arrived early to walk the grounds & get a few scene setting images before heading up to meet Natasha & her bridesmaids as they finished off their morning preparations. They had planned their wedding day carefully, a small, and emotional private legal ceremony downstairs at Ardington House, before heading out to the temple where all the invited guests had gathered for an outdoor Wedding blessing. With a mix of cultural backgrounds there were a range of traditional bride & groom blessings including a race to cut the bed sheet heart out (Oliver was supplied with the blunt scissors!) and a hard confetti throw of boiled sweets, the day went by far, far too quickly.
I had met up with Natasha & Oliver only a month earlier & they introduced me to the stunning Valley gardens in Windsor for their pre-wedding shoot, you can take a look at some of the image here – Pre-Wedding Portraits at Valley Gardens Windsor
I am so privileged to be a recommended Wedding photographer at Ardington House, it is a joy to spend time there, very much looking forward to a number of visits this year. Natasha & Oliver you were a joy to work with, so relaxed and clearly enjoying the day with their guests and family.
Huge balloons, cracking sunset = amazing! … Here’s a small glimpse into how their day unfolded….
