So on the 10th of May 2016 we found ourselves over in the Adderbury area to photograph/video the wedding of the wonderful James and Alex Albon. The ceremony took place at Dovecote Barn, a picturesque location, perfect for a rustic vibe to your wedding and the reception took place at the swanky Cartwright Arms Hotel in Banbury!
James and Alex took advantage of our photography/video combination package. So before reading on, why not check out their wedding highlights film?!
So, we first met James and Alex when photographing/filming their engagement session awhile back! It's always pretty nerve racking meeting a new couple for the first time. But I think we can all honestly say that those nerves disappeared almost immediately. James and Alex are such a fun and loving couple that working with them is an absolute dream. They really allowed us to take on a perfect documentary/photo-journalistic style as we just stepped back and watched the sparks fly. I'm sure there would be people that are super envious of these guys and the love they have for each other!
The day started off super chill. We shot groom prep at James and Alex's house and the bridal prep at the Carwright Arms Hotel. Alex looked absolutely gorgeous as she got ready and everyone was super laid back and relaxed.
The ceremony in Dovecote Barn was absolutely beautiful. Dovecote Barn really is a super cutesy and rustic dream venue, a true hidden gem! Alex and her bridal party arrived with James waiting eagerly at the front. As soon as they greeted one another, James couldn't contain the joy and love he had and began to cry. So damn lovely. But shh! don't tell him we told you!
After the ceremony everyone got together for some group shots and James and Alex were greeted by their super cute pooch!
Over the course of the day we managed to sneak James and Alex off a few times for some gorgeous couples portraits. These guys honestly nailed them! They listened to our advice of 'just act natural and be comfortable with one another' and the love just flowed and it really shows in the photography/video.
We really feel like we were super welcome at this wedding. At no point did James and Alex feel like 'just clients'. We truly think we've gained two awesome new friends and can't wait to see where the rest of their life leads. We just wanna say a massive good luck for the future to this awesome couple, they totally rocked their wedding day!
Anyways, we've talked/typed for long enough now! Check out some of our favourite images from the day below!
