A Kingston Bagpuize House Wedding

Last year I headed along to just outside Oxford for a  Kingston Bagpuize House Wedding, which is a beautiful family owned stately home that provided the stunning backdrop for Julia and Richard’s wedding.

When I originally met Julia and Richard it was immediately clear that Julia was not one for feeling comfortable standing in front of the camera and posing.  I believe her words were “I’ve never had a decent photograph taken of me” which led to two things happening.  Firstly I reassured her that it is not my style to make people pull ridiculous poses in front of the camera or to heavily direct them into feeling they’re part of a fashion shoot for Vogue magazine.  Secondly I grabbed my camera form the car and took a couple of quick shots in their back garden just to show how easy it was to capture a photograph of Julia where she wasn’t blinking or sporting a funny face – her worse nightmare.

Incidentally I had recently swapped my camera setup to a smaller, less intrusive system as being over 6ft tall and not exactly the slimmest of people I already stand out and didn’t want to put people off by waving around a huge camera in front of people when I’m trying to capture natural, relaxed photographs of couples and their friends enjoying the wedding day.

Anyway here are a selection of some of my favourite photographs of Julia and Richard’s Kingston Bagpuize Wedding.
