Our bride and groom chose St Thomas of Canterbury Church in Goring on Thames, on the Oxfordshire Berkshire border for their wedding ceremony.
Our celebrant was extremely easy to get on with and Peter was able to shoot a good selection of photos and record the ceremony in full on video in this light and roomy church.
Parking next to the church is almost non-existent and there is very little available parking in the immediate streets, so professional photographers and videographers with heavy gear are recommended to make arrangements with the church beforehand to ensure parking can be available adjacent to the main entrance.
The wedding reception took place just over the bridge (over the River Thames!) a short walk away at the popular wedding venue the Swan at Streatley Hotel. We were lucky with the unpredictable summer weather and were able to make good use of the hotel's excellent mature riverside gardens, and the Magdalen College barge for some wedding photos.
There were no fewer than four best men! Well, three best men and one best lady to be precise. With all that fire power it was inevitable that our poor groom would suffer more than the usual broadsides in the speeches but he took it all in his stride.
The evening dancing featured one of the most active dancefloors Peter has ever seen. It may have helped that the DJ was a real pro fresh in the New York. And her partner treated us to a truly astonishing display of high energy breakdancing. Wow!
Our couple booked a combined photography and video package starting with the latter stages of the girls getting ready and finishing shortly after that amazing breakdance interlude.
Oh and the dog. Thats Bella. She clearly had the time of her life and wasn’t the slightest bit phased by all the activity and all the attention she got. Lovely to meet you Bella!
