Helen and Vince are such a fun couple, with an artistic flair and some very unique ideas about their wedding!  The wedding photography at Abbey Buildings Abingdon provided so many unique opportunities for fun and relaxed photos, it was such a joy to capture their day.

I popped over to Cosener’s House for a few photos of Helen’s wedding preparations.  The hotel is perfectly located next door to their Abbey Buildings Abingdon wedding venue so it was really easy to capture photos at both locations.  Cosener’s House is a gorgeous Oxfordshire wedding venue, with plenty of rooms for guests and lovely grounds.

Helen was soon ready for the ceremony and we walked over to The Unicorn theatre for the wedding ceremony.  Helen and her bridesmaids entered from the back of the theatre, walking past all the guests to the stage where Vince was waiting.

The ceremony was in the spotlights of the theatre, and everyone had a perfect view as these two wonderful people tied the knot.  There was plenty of applause as the ceremony ended and we went back out into the gorgeous summer sunshine.  Drinks and snacks followed provided by Nyama catering, with some lovely spicy snacks!

We took a walk to the Abbey Grounds for a few photos, then headed back to the Abbey Buildings Abingdon reception.  The garden games included Toss the Pig, which was a new one for me!  The grounds offer plenty of outdoor space for guests to relax and enjoy the day.

The barn was decorated with fresh flowers, twinkling fairy lights and a flying shark!  The guests certainly enjoyed saying hello to the shark as it floated past, with the children having a fun time driving it.

I must mention the cheese cake stand, which was handmade by Helen and Vince.  It was stunning, such a unique piece.  Helen and Vince are both authors and their books were on the little bookshelf.  After the cutting it was time for dancing in the cellar.  I love ceilidh bands, they’re such a fun way of getting all the guests involved in the celebrations.

Congratulations to you both, and all the best with the adventures which lie ahead in Oz!

I am an Abingdon wedding photographer and I often provide Abbey Buildings wedding photography as well as Coseners House wedding photography.  My style is natural and informal, and I love bright colours, relaxed smiles and unposed moments to remember your day.
