All she ever wanted was unpredictable kisses, And unforgettable laughter
– Brandon Villasenor –
When you have your soulmate to make you smile and a fluffy little white cloud named Pao to shower you in kisses every day life is indeed sweet! Ana and Animesh celebrated their love with a Le Manoir La Belle Époque wedding celebration this summer. The dreamy surrounds of this luxurious Oxfordshire wedding venue was perfect for our couple’s I Do’s. Being close to Oxford, where they both studied, made it meaningful. Exquisite food and surrounds meant family and friends would be completely spoilt. Most importantly they could have Pao present on the day as their ring bearer and dog of honour! Ana and Animesh, your romantic First Look blew us away and your adorable dog stole our hearts. We are honoured that you chose us to capture your special day.
Ana prepared in the exquisite Hyacinth room at Le Manoir overlooking La Belle Époque.
Our Bride’s beautiful Mother lovingly helped her daughter with all the finishing touches…
Ana looked stunning in a golden green langa from India that shimmered with intricately embroidered detail.
A glamorous beauty look by Sofia from Claire Hanson’s MACH Team suited our blushing Bride.
For Ana and Animesh’s First Look before the ceremony we chose a secluded spot in the Le Manoir gardens.
This would be a special moment for Ana and Animesh to enjoy privately on their wedding day…
True to his word Animesh did not turn around until Ana tapped him on the shoulder.
Our Groom’s expression of joy and admiration as he saw his beautiful Bride to Be was just wonderful!
Sharing this moment without distraction allowed Ana and Animesh to soak it in and express their love…
The resulting memory and photos of a First Look are often our couple’s favourite of the day…
As they reflect authentic emotions beautifully and boldly…
We use location and lenses to give our couple the space to enjoy every second without feeling self conscious.
After their First Look we took Ana and Animesh’s portraits in the beautiful surrounds…
This way our couple got fabulous portraits without taking additional time away from their guests later in the day.
Ana and Animesh beamed with happiness from the moment they saw each other…
We couldn’t wait to do it all over again, this time with family and friends, in an hour’s time…
While Ana and Animesh freshened up we captured the ceremony space before guests’ arrival.
Of course making sure to capture the adorable Dog of Honour and ring bearer Pao!
Ana’s parents joined her as our Bride prepared to walk down the aisle.
They could not have been more proud and happy for their daughter.
Ana’s Mother made sure the final touches were in place. Her Father proudly gave his arm to walk by her side.
Ana’s smile was just as beautiful as before…
Blowing Animesh’s breath away for the second time that day!
Pao was both dapper and adorable in his doggie tuxedo and more than ready for his big moment!
As soon as he was given the chance he flew across to his humans as fast as he could!
Award for the cutest and most enthusiastic ring bearer goes to…Pao of course!
With the proceedings approved by their dog…
…Ana and Animesh were officially husband and wife!
The occasion was applauded by those who would provide a lifetime of love and friendship.
After the ceremony everyone enjoyed drinks and canapes in the sunny La Belle Époque gardens…
The atmosphere was perfect for traditional lawn games, which Pao enjoyed as much as the guests!
Groovy jazz melodies by Down for the Count added to the lovely ambience of the wedding reception.
With photos of family, friends and Pao thrown in to the mix!
Inside the restaurant of La Belle Époque looked summery and inviting…
Individual posies and gorgeous arrangements by The Flower Fairies adding an extra dash of romance!
The esteemed chefs at Le Manoir were of course hard at work behind the scenes…
Creating delicate and delicious dishes to delight the palette for the Wedding Breakfast.
Congratulations Ana and Animesh; what an unforgettable day you had!
