“She walks in beauty, like the night. Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright. Meet in her aspect and her eyes…” -Byron.
Nicola and Peter’s Le Manoir Oxfordshire wedding was bursting with beauty in detail and heart. From our gorgeous couple who said I do, to our Bride’s stunning race horse Max who made a surprise appearance. Then of course there is the romance of the setting, the never-ending florals and personalised touches that permeated the day. We could not think of a more magical way to celebrate a marriage. Nicola and Peter our heartfelt congratulations; with devotion and love we know married life has nothing but extraordinary things in store!
Badgley Mischka heels and sparkling details let you know this was no ordinary occasion!
Nicola looked breathtaking, her beauty commanding all even amidst the romance of Le Manoir.
Our Bride’s bouquet created by Joanna Carter Flowers was enchanting with its elegant and unstructured style.
Peter looked dashing in a light grey check suit, dried floral boutonnière and print details.
Our Groom was full of happiness as the time grew ever shorter to marrying his soulmate…
All the details our Bride had worked so hard on were in place…
Le Manoir’s La Belle Époque Conservatory looked fabulous for the ceremony on this sunny September day…
Generous floral displays in raspberry and blush complimented the giant balloons in pink, peach and white.
Nicola’s beautiful friend and maid of honour Luisa looked pretty in pink too!
Through the grand gates of La Belle Époque’s courtyard garden with all their guests looking on…
…And with her father by her side our Bride was ready to make a magnificent entrance.
A ceiling of blue sky enveloped Nicola and Peter as they exchanged their vows in the glass conservatory.
With an intimate guest list the ceremony was personal and relaxed.
Strategic positioning and lense choice allowed us to capture all the moments and remain unobtrusive.
After the ceremony Nicola and Peter supped champagne and enjoyed a delicate canapé or two!
Before giving guests the opportunity to shower them in petals and partake in formal group photos.
The restaurant at La Belle Époque was all set up for a decadent evening dinner.
With romantic florals by Joanna Carter Flowers and twinkling candlelight…
But first guests were to enjoy an afternoon tea Marie Antoinette would have been envious of!
Nicola and Peter wanted some beautiful portraits within the spectacular grounds of Le Manoir.
The late afternoon light and gorgeous gardens made a dreamy combination…
Add our stylish and soulful couple to the mix and we were in photographer’s heaven!
As a treat for all their guests Nicola had her race horse Max make a surprise appearance!
With his floral garland and pearl plaited mane Max took everyone’s breath away!
The evening would be about amazing food and enjoying the clear starry sky around the glow of firepits, with marshmallows and blankets to keep everyone warm. Congratulations Nicola and Peter, we loved capturing your Le Manoir Oxfordshire wedding celebrations!
Thank you to everyone who made Nicola and Peter’s Le Manoir Oxfordshire wedding unfold so beautifully:
