Anya contacted me last year after seeing some of my photography and told me she instantly knew I was the photographer for her, yay for me! I met both Anya & Steve and we chatted over a glass of wine about their plans they had for their travel themed wedding. Anya flies with British Airways and Steve is in the RAF, hence the travel theme!

Anya knew exactly what she wanted and together we created a secret Pinterest board to share inspiration for her big day. And even though it rained for most of their wedding day, Anya was an actual Pinterest bride! I couldn’t believe how easy it was to take photos of these two and Steve’s enthusiasm on the day about seeing his bride-to-be was super cute and made me smile all day long.

These two are now good friends of ours and Anya and I regulary meet up for shopping trips or coffee & cake where we talk non stop about pregnancy as we are both expecting babies early next year. I’m so happy they chose me as their wedding photographer and it’s a bonus that I’ve now gained a friend who is sharing a life changing experience with me! We’ve already planned the bump shoot and the newborn shoot so watch this space!

Here are some images from their beautiful day at The Westwood Hotel in Oxford.
