I was delighted to be asked to provide Kirtlington Park wedding photography for Emily and Gilles as they celebrated their big day.  Kirtlington Park is a stately home wedding venue in the heart of Oxfordshire with the wow factor!

I met Emily and Gilles at a Caswell House wedding I photographed for their friends, and I was so pleased to see this group of lovely people again.  Emily was getting ready in the beautiful bridal suite whilst my assistant photographer John photographed the grooms party putting on ties and jackets, with a few photos in the grounds.  Emily was joined in the bridal suite by the bridesmaids as well as family and friends.

Wedding at Kirtlington Park

The guests soon started to arrive for the wedding at Kirtlington Park and Carl The Pianist provided some exceptionally beautiful music as they waited for the bride to arrive.  Gilles and his mother walked down the aisle first followed by the bridesmaids and Emily, looking absolutely stunning in her dress from Elizabeth McQueen Bridal.  The ceremony tool place overlooking the vast lawn, with the sun shining through the glass doors – its a spectacular setting.  After the ceremony the guests enjoyed drinks and canapes on the lawn followed by a few photographs in the grounds.

Kirtlington Park wedding reception

The wedding reception room looked elegant and stylish, with flowers and candles to decorate the tables.  The guests enjoyed a wonderful meal followed by very funny speeches! As the weather was so warm the guests were able to enjoy the deckchairs and lawn games as the sun started to set.

Soon it was time for the evening celebrations and dancing.  Gilles had provided wedding favours for the guests to drink before the dancing which was a really fun idea!  The cake-cutting and dancing soon followed, with the wedding band Harry and The Boys providing some outstanding music.

What a wonderful opportunity to provide Kirtlington Park wedding photography for such a wonderful couple, their family and friends.  Wishing you a lifetime of happiness!
