Today’s gorgeous couple Su and Mark were married in the summer and their day is so wonderfully personal, quirky and unique – with fish, lego tattoos for all the guests, oodles of home made touches and home made mead (or perfume, depending who you ask!) I also adore the horror inspired wedding cake – such a talking point and really creatively done (truly!) – and the images are fabulous. When wedding blogs encourage you to have a wedding which reflects your personalities, this is exactly what we mean!

“We had bunting in the marquee, lots of fairy lights for when it got dark, a ‘best day ever’ banner, a big inflatable flamingo and crocodile. The table plan was a map of the world made up of spots with all the places we’d ever been marked on. Each table was assigned a country/place. At the table, there was a photo of a memory from that place and a short story about something funny that happened there.

We’re blessed to have such fabulous historic wedding destinations in the UK – our coastlines, countryside and quaint, quintessentially English cities inspire the loveliest of weddings. I’m so happy to be sharing Janina & Steve’s day with you this morning. They’re the sweetest couple – the details are stunning (LOVE that bouquet!) even though they chose not to have a theme: the spirit and style of their day comes from the grace of the city of Oxford and its architecture.

Oxford wedding blog with Carol Elizabeth Photography (31)

“We love Oxford’s libraries, gardens and architecture. Getting married in two historic buildings, one of them among the most iconic buildings in Oxford was a privilege. We have both moved to Oxford from abroad and the wedding was our chance to share the life we have built here with our friends and families. Many of the most important people in our lives hadn’t met each other before. We had our rehearsal dinner in Somerville College, where we met and where Steve still teaches and we hosted a brunch the morning after the wedding in our house. For the wedding itself, we both immediately knew we wanted to celebrate in the Divinity School when we first visited it.”

Romantic college courtyards steeped in history, a series of charming locations around one of England’s proudest cities, a truly beautiful bride and groom – today’s wedding is more than perfect. Elly and John had a wonderful summer wedding in the heart of Oxford, keeping the best traditions and adding their own special touches to personalise their day. I love this!

“We had a ‘first duet’ instead of a first dance (my husband on trumpet and me singing), and we were done by 8pm which meant that those who wanted to travel home could, and those who wanted to stay a little longer met with us at a river-side pub for a convivial couple of hours to reflect on an amazing day!”
