F&G, Ashfold School, Dorton House

Who knew lockdown love stories would be a thing? Well, this is one of those stories.... Freya and Gareth, from Oxford, got to know each other during the numerous lockdowns experienced due to Covid (remember those days?!) It was a cliched whirlwind romance, resulting in them moving in together pretty quickly and the resulting proposal. Both talented musicians, they through a mutual love of music, specifically folk music.

Having spoken to and met with the couple a few times before their wedding and the days leading up to it, you could feel the love. They were both so laid back about their upcoming wedding, and that was reflected in the style of the day. The ceremony and reception were held in the grounds of Dorton House, which is home to Ashfold School, where Freya is a teacher. So it seemed apt to use the beautiful grounds and private chapel for their special day. The chapel was quaint and with their large wedding party, was full to brim.

The reception, held in a beautiful marquee from Vintage Marquees, reflected their relaxed style, consisting of long rustic tables and handmade floral arrangements. Combined with the warm July summer's day, it almost had a festival feel about. And what is vital at any good festival? Music. And not any old music, but folk music, expertly delivered by Moonaroon. And they didn't just deliver with the music; they also threw in a few dance lessons.

I had a blast photographing Freya & Gareth's wedding in rural Buckinghamshire. It's my neck of the woods so made it extra special. Thanks for having me, guys.

Congratulations Freya & Gareth!
