Here is a fabulous little Wedding from a beautiful day at the end of May last year. Alex & Gareth’s were married in the centre of Abingdon at St Nicolas Church & their Wedding reception was held, just a stones throw away, at The Crown & Thistle Inn. This is a their pictorial story of their Abingdon Wedding Photography.
It was a shorter day coverage for me, so after arriving and getting parked, I had a little bit of time to wander between the two venues & gather some background venue shots. I had arranged to meet Gareth & the boys, just round the corner from the church at The Kings Head & Bell pub, for a little dutch courage before the church service began. Cracking choice – they opted to try a variety of malts before ‘wandering’ across the town square to start greeting the arriving guests at St Nicolas. Gareth’s passionate Welsh root’s played a large part of the ceremony, with a fabulous, rousing voices of a full Welsh male choir. Even the Revd Paul Smith found his singing voice during the ceremony as he broke out into song.
The hugs and congratulations started after the ceremony, then appearing from nowhere the Abingdon Town Crier bellowed out the congratulations to Alex & Gareth to everyone’s surprise and enjoyment announcing the party to begin! With the beautiful Abbey Gardens located just behind the Church, I took Alex & Gareth for a short walk whilst the guests made their short journey to the reception. It was my first visit to The Crown & Thistle, I found the venue delightful, so relaxed & friendly and perfect for an Abingdon Town Centre Wedding. Thank you Alex & Gareth of inviting me in to cover your day, it is one I will remember fiery fondly & for a long time!
