KIRAN & TOM – BODLEIAN LIBRARY / FREUD, OXFORD
When the Children’s novelist married the romantic artist…Kiran and Tom’s Oxford celebration will always be one of our favorites. It was awesome working with such a relaxed, creative couple.
They of course chose to utilize our award winning photography and video bundle, and I think we captured the essence of their day just great! The preparations began in a swanky boutique hotel for the stunning bride to be…Tom opted for the home comforts and the company of the pet cat – oh and a few groomsmen too. His abstract art provided us with a quirky backdrop throughout. Cheers Tom!
Being Oxford graduates, they were eligible amongst the elite to marry in the infamous Bodleian Library. What a true honor, and a definite once in a lifetime experience for us. The aged, yet handsome dark wood panelling and huge aisle window made for some charming photos. There were plenty of tears and occasional song and laughter too! A real ceremony to remember!
We strolled back to the venue through the unique Oxford streets, grabbing some shots along the way. Its was a change of scenery for us and a nice new challenge to be photographing weddings in urban surroundings. Our natural, documentary based style helped to enhance the city backdrop further. We could have wandered around all day…needless to say there was a reception to get back to.
Kiran and Tom had chosen the chapel come student bar, and famous Oxford watering hole, Freud to be their party venue. All in stone with pillars and high ceiling, this place had the wow factor and fitted their style perfectly. No need for over decoration, the venue offered that naturally and in abundance – again massively enhancing the appeal of their photography and wedding film.
A Lebanese buffet filled their guests, and an unlimited flow of cocktails helped them open their way and gave them a boost of confidence to party the night away, with the help of a local live band. Amazing times.
It was a privilege to be involved and we can’t wait for the Goan adventure later this year. It was a joy getting to know you both and we wish you all the happiness in the world. Please enjoy their highlights film and a selection of our favorite photographs from the day.
