Poundon House - Ryan and Bryony’s stunning Indian/English wedding

Saturday saw record breaking temperatures for October 1st - no-one expected to be sweltering under sunny skies but we all did and what a day was had! I couldn’t wait too long to share these.

After Bryony and Ryan’s engagement shoot at Poundon House in Oxfordshire (if you missed it, click here: http://www.kimhawkins.co.uk/blog/2011/08/a-poundon-house-e-shoot-with-bryony-and-ryan/), I knew just how good they would look on their big day and I was soo right! This was a wedding of two venues, two ceremonies, three outfit changes and two pairs of shoes (for Bryony - what more could a girl want on her wedding day)? First was the civil ceremony in the house itself with Bryony wearing an elegant sand patterned sari, after which the couple changed (Bryony in a wedding dress with sheer veil) for their trip in a vintage Lagonda sportscar for the religious ceremony in the beautiful village church of Marsh Gibbon. For the reception, Bryony changed once more, this time into an electric blue sari which was simply stunning. The massive marquee in the grounds of Poundon hosted the reception, which included some of the tastiest Indian food I’ve eaten!

Many thanks to Martin Price who, at very late notice stepped in to join me as my assistant and second shooter for the day.

Colourful, joyful and an absolute pleasure to photograph, here are some real highlights of Bryony and Ryan’s wedding…

A Poundon House e-shoot with Bryony and Ryan

Wow, what can I say about Bryony and Ryan? Talk about photogenic!

I had a very easy job last weekend, capturing their e-shoot in the house and grounds at Poundon House in Oxfordshire, where these two medical doctors will be tying the knot in October.

As usual, I tried to keep away from some of the more obvious spots for photographs and I came upon some ramshackle greenhouses, along with the stable block and a small orchard. When the rain came, we retreated into the house which is large and light enough to allow stunning photographs inside too - I was certainly spoilt!

Please enjoy this snapshot of their shoot…
