Today see’s the wedding of Rachael & Olly on my blog. They had their Tythe Barn Launton wedding last Spring and it was a beauty. There is something about Spring weddings that really appeals to me – I think it is something to do with the optimism that Spring provides after the grey of an English winter. On Rachael & Olly’s day we were graced with blue skies and daffodils in abundance at The Tythe Barn Launton which is such a great venue for a wedding – a beautiful barn set in lovely grounds.
When I arrived at Rachael’s parents house it was a hive of activity and the whole place was filled with laughter – mainly Rachael’s! One of her best friends, Stevie, was doing her make-up and, to be honest, they couldn’t stop giggling. I’m sure the make up took twice as long as it should have done!
After a beautiful service at Holy trinity Church in Headington we all headed over to the Tythe Barn for the reception. The ten minutes I had for portraits of Rachael & Olly might well be the easiest portrait shoot I have ever done – back came the smiling and giggling and it was a joy to photograph two people whose main priority was to enjoy every moment.
The day was a pleasure to be a part of. Some weddings remind you of what it’s all about – this was most definitely one of them.
If you are having a Tythe Barn Launton wedding or you are looking for an Oxford wedding photographer I would love to hear from you.
