As the Old Luxter’s Barn Henley Oxfordshire Wedding Photographer we were so looking forward to this relaxed wedding day. Marie and Paul were married at the quaint St James Church in Ruscombe and then onto Old Luxters Barn in Henley, Oxfordshire for their reception.
It was one of those perfect weddings where it went without a hitch. No issues, no rain (when it was meant to be pouring all day!) the bride and groom were radiant and the venue was the perfect backdrop for the day.
It was full of laughter, tears of the good kind and the coming together of two families. We heard about how the bride and groom met over drinks in a bar with a Pez dispenser stealing the show, how the groom broke up with the best man and much hilarity in the photo booth!
We met Marie and her lovely Mum at The Bird in the Hand hotel fair in Knowl Hill, Reading and the following week the happy couple popped to Pinewood Studios wedding fair so we could discuss further. The 4 of us instantly got on and it was like we knew them for years!
They booked on the spot and we started to look forward to their beautiful wedding.
Fast forward a year, the images speak for themselves. Laughter, love and the reminder of a beautiful day.
Thanks to the incredible comments from couple, friends and family so far; it really is the icing on top of an already beautiful cake!
