Claire and Tony met through work and are one of the loveliest couples I’ve had the pleasure of photographing.  Their wedding at Hawkwell House was delightful, and before that the wedding ceremony in Kidlington was held at St Thomas Church.

Unfortunately it was a rather wet day, with rain for most of the day, but that didn’t put a damper on the celebrations.  I met Claire at home for hair and make-up before we headed over to the church.  Umbrellas at the ready, Claire and her bridal party dashed into the church for the start of the ceremony.  Plenty of family and friends filled the church to watch Clare and Tony tie the knot!  we then took a few family photos at the alter before heading back into the rain for a quick trip to their Hawkwell House wedding reception.

On arrival we dashed indoors, and found some lovely spots in the hotel for photos of the bride and groom.  We also took a few photos with friends and family before everyone had a drink and chat, enjoying this wonderful day.

The reception room in the newly-refurbished wing looked gorgeous, decorated with lovely personal decorations.  It was soon time for the wedding breakfast and speeches.  We then managed a few outdoor photos as the rain has stopped, and it was really enjoyable to take a walk in the grounds and throw some confetti!

I captured a few photos of the first dance and also the guests up dancing, it was a party atmosphere and I’m sure everyone had a wonderful evening.  Congratulations to you both, wishing you so much happiness!
