weddings

Emma + Dan | Steeple Aston Hall by Joshua Tomalin

My final wedding of 2017 was Emma and Dan's at Steeple Aston Hall. Except they had already got married the week before so, like the couple themselves, this was a unique kinda knee's up. A huge thank you to Emma, Dan, Roo and all their fab friends.

Kate + Adam | Bodleian Library Oxford Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

Fun, laughter and good times were rolling at Kate and Adam's wedding at the Bodleian Library. Classy venue for a classy couple. A huge thank you to you guys. 

Kerrie + Justin | St Michael and All Angels Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

After 20-odd years Justin did the right thing and took Kerrie down the aisle - and I hung around and took a few photos. Thanks very much guys, I'm still hungover. I think you can see from the evidence that it was a hard-partying kinda deal.

Jody + Alistair | Oxford Town Hall + Modern Art Oxford Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

Jody and Alistair's wedding at Oxford Town Hall and Modern Art Oxford had an Australian theme after their relocation down under. Even the wedding was playing its part with blazing sunshine all day. J+A also receive the inaugural 2016 Tomalin award for the hardest dancing couple of the year.  

Alice + Grant | Oxford City Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

There is nothing quite like photographing two people in love who want to do things their way. Alice and Grant's wedding was exactly that. On paper you'd think that the Chinese tea ceremony, the surreptitiously rented house in Jericho, the trip to the castle, the cloud suit and the selfie competition would kinda clash - but you'd be wrong. It was awesome. Young love is just the best.

Michelle + Patrick | Winkworth Farm Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

Michelle and Patrick have a huge posse of friends who love them dearly, and having photographed their wedding I can understand why. This wedding contained much laughing, dancing, kissing, boob grabbing, Mustangs, Jager, sparklers and laughter laughter laughter. They were the first and last on the dancefloor, which says it all to me.

Also, having your mates don masks of the bride and groom and flashmob the party is a genius idea. Watching the groom dance with 20 versions of himself was... surreal.

Ida + Joesph | Brantwood, Lake District Wedding by Joshua Tomalin

Ida and Joe are two cool cats. Veterans of the Oxford theatre scene they decided to get married in... the Lake District. But, they also brought with them every single person who has stood on a stage in the greater Oxfordshire area, so the entertainment was top notch.

My girlfriend I decided to make a trip of it and took in all of the usual tourist checkpoints like Bluebird Ale, closing time arguments outside our hotel window and being much too unfit to climb enormous hills.

From the stereotypical grim-up-north weather, zero to maniacal St. Bernard (what up Wallace), so many dramatic turns on the mic and unthinkably large quantities of Champagne it was the most amount of fun watching these guys do their love thing.

Break a leg guys.
