Gallery: Vic & Phil’s Wedding – 26th May 2013

A nice local wedding this time around – a day spent at the Lion Quays hotel and spa near Oswestry for the wedding of one of Alex’s university-pals – Vic – and her partner, Phil.

With some surprisingly good weather considering it was a Bank Holiday weekend, the day went pretty much as well as anyone could have hoped – no mishaps or problems along the way! Typically when I go to a wedding at least someone gets a broken arm or a fire alarm goes off or something similar, so it’s a nice change to not require a call to 999 at any point throughout the day.

I took my camera with me, as ever, and snapped a few shots. Well, I say a few – it actually turned out to be 210 photos, not including any of the evening reception (as my camera battery had run out – schoolboy error!)

I’ve whittled this down to 86 photos, but I have to admit I’m not overly happy with some of them – I used my 18-55mm kit lens for most of the day, I should have stuck to my 50mm prime for better quality.

Ah well, it was a super day anyway – delightful company in wonderful surroundings. Can’t ask for more really, can you?

Gallery: Jenny & Arni’s Wedding – 14th July 2012

This weekend saw the marriage between Jenny – one of Alex’s friends from Aberystwyth University – and her partner Arni. The wedding took place at Steventon Church (which, funnily enough, is in Steventon in Oxfordshire) with the reception afterwards being held at the Village Hall in nearby Eynsham. The following day, a get-together and barbecue was had in Ducklington, another nearby village.

So, quite the tour of Oxfordshire, then!

A good time was had (hopefully) by all, especially at the reception where the ceilidh band succeeded in getting me on the dance-floor – no mean feat!

Congratulations to the happy couple, and thanks for inviting Alex and I to enjoy your weekend with you all!
