Imagine a wedding venue brimming with ancient history; yet in the heart of a beautiful English city. Imagine an evening celebration in a timeless setting, a rich treasure house with grand, sweeping staircases and priceless paintings.

Our friends at The Ashmolean Museum in Oxford have brought together a bunch of supremely talented creatives to showcase the magic of their venue. The Ashmolean is available as a private wedding venue after hours, its opulent reception rooms and architectural alcoves making a stunning and fascinating setting for your special celebration.

I love a wedding which is different. Of course every single wedding day is unique, because it’s all about the people and making your day personal… but then there are some weddings which really stand out from the crowd! For Ginger and Jamie, the venue made their day extra spectacular. Imagine being married in a museum, surrounded by history and treasures – making memories of your very own, to last forever.

Ginger and Jamie are gorgeous: Ginger’s just the most beautiful bride, and Jamie her perfect match! Styling their day was a matter of keeping things simple, and timeless – as the backdrop of The Ashmolean Museum was all they needed to make this a truly unique and wonderful wedding!

Happy Sunday, beautiful! How’s your weekend going? I forgot to tell you – we spent last night at The Wordsworth in Grasmere, a gorgeous spot for a wedding – so waking up this morning was absolute bliss! I’ll tell you all about it later in the week 🙂 For today though, something VERY special. We’ve been chatting to the wedding & events team at the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford recently – it’s a breathtaking and wonderfully unique wedding venue with a stunning balance of contemporary architecture and historic backdrops – half a million years of art and history, to be precise! Today we’re sharing a bridal photoshoot at the Ashmolean, so you can see the place for yourselves… isn’t it incredible?!

So today is officially my last day of work this week… we’re treating ourselves to a very long weekend of music and dancing our heads off, plus a little Christmas shopping too. Of course English Wedding will still have fabulous features coming your way: we’ve a wedding dress showcase tomorrow and then 3 gorgeous real weddings to share with you – all very different, and from Devon, Essex and London. I can’t wait to see them live on the blog! Today though, join me and my lovely friend Carol Elizabeth Photography for a virtual tour around one of Oxford’s most exciting wedding venues – the Ashmolean Museum. Carol is an English Wedding team member and visited the Ashmolean on our behalf earlier in the autumn when they held an open evening. She took her camera and captured a few images from the event – and she’s shared some fabulous pics from a beautiful real wedding at the Ashmolean too!

Today’s wedding is breathtaking. The venue is amazing – I love all the statues in the background, especially in the wedding breakfast room. Oh and of course Stephanie is soooo beautiful (there’s an incredible shot of her on the stairs which took my breath away!) and Ludovic looks brilliant. I love it, all of it!
