A sunflower filled Festival Wedding at Newbridge Farm, Oxfordshire

After planning a July 2021 wedding, Ellie and Tom decided to reschedule to 23rd July 2022, allowing almost all of their friends and family from overseas to attend. It was the biggest wedding I have ever photographed with 300 guests!

The bride, her parents and her bridesfolk travelled to University Church of St Mary the Virgin in Oxford in a vintage minibus. Once they arrived at the church, Ellie walked down the aisle to a beloved classic. The ceremony also featured the vocal talents of Ellie’s friends. Ellie is a choral singer and I will never forget her surprise song for Tom - When I am Sixty Four from Beatles. It was such a lovely moment and this song will always remind me this special day. The pair swapped wedding rings that had previously belonged to their grandparents.

Following the ceremony, the happy couple and their guests made their way to Newbridge Farm in Witney, Oxfordshire where they continued celebrations that had begun the night before. On the wedding day itself, guests tucked into a variety of dishes, including some delicious Italian desserts. The entertainment was kicked off with a performance from Tom’s sister, Anna, who sang Plan to Marry by Lucinda Williams before some wedding breakfast games began. The couple’s first dance was to I Want to Hold Your Hand by the Beatles, starting out with an acoustic version before inviting everyone onto the dance floor for the original, energetic version.

Thank you Ellie and Tom for hire me for your most amazing day. I was truly honoured to be part of it.
