Rousham House Wedding – Sophie & Oliver

Back in the summer of last year I had the pleasure of covering Sophie and Oliver’s Rousham House Wedding in Oxfordshire. I had been so looking forward to covering this Wedding for many reasons, but above all I have historical family connections to Rousham House. I grew up in the the nearby village of Wootton in Oxfordshire and some of my ancestors had worked in service at the Rousham House. I have visited Rousham many times previously, but this was a first for me on Wedding Photography duty.

My day started nearby in the village at Sophie’s family home where she grew up, covering the mornings preparations, before a short trip to St Leonard & St James Church in Rousham. It was a lovely intimate Wedding ceremony, the church is so close to Rousham House a confetti tunnel was formed following the service, to lead the guests into the outdoor drinks reception in the formal gardens. It was also a real treat to be allowed onto the roof of the house to get an ariel shot of the grounds and group shot of all the guests from above – and a unique view of the Eye Catcher Folly! The weather couldn’t have been better all day, the gardens are so extensive I took Sophie & Oliver for a short walk following the Wedding breakfast to explore the follies for a while and have a little “quiet time”, before evening guests started to arrive. The dancing got into full motion and we were even treated to a short “sky on fire” moment to finish off the day…perfect…

If you get a chance to visit Rousham House which is open to the public, please do so the gardens are just stunning! Here is a small selection of image to tell the story of Sophie and Oliver’s Rousham House Wedding Day.
