"Is that her?" As I peeked into the hall where Antonia and Sam sat holding hands, it took me a moment to recognize the glamorous bride with her smokey eyes and loose curls. I'd met Antonia and Sam when I did their Oxford engagement shoot, so I already knew that Antonia was naturally beautiful, but I was still floored when I saw her in her blue wedding dress. She'd gone from fresh-faced girl next door to total gorgeousness. And yes, I agree with everyone who commented that she bears a resemblance to Katie Holmes! Little wonder then, that it took Sam 5 hours to work up the courage to talk to Antonia when he first met her!

She knew they were right for each other when she injured her leg playing netball one day. She was rushed to the A & E, where she found Sam already there, anxiously awaiting her arrival. Then came a four hour wait. Despite the intense pain (and yes, it must've been intense because she had to have surgery!), at some point, Antonia realized that hey, I'm sitting in the A & E with a busted knee and I'm having fun! After this realization, she reasoned that if Sam could make this fun, then life with him was probably going to be just fine.

Their wedding was nothing like the usual wedding. They arranged for me to arrive at the end of the ceremony (photography wasn't allowed during the ceremony) and requested that I shot mostly candids. We did manage to sneak a few portraits in, but Antonia and Sam spent most of the day having a great time with their loved ones. The result was a set of the happiest wedding pictures I've come across. I could not stop smiling as I looked through the viewfinder at the end of the day, and more than once (when I came to pictures of Sam's dad, for example, who's hilarious) I found myself laughing out loud, which was somewhat embarrassing and made passersby avoid me.

Oooh, what an original wedding venue! It's a pity not more couples know about this place...I know I certainly would have chosen it in a heartbeat. You are right about these being the happiest wedding pictures ever too. Everyone looks like they're genuinely enjoying themselves. Wonderful job capturing the emotion in the wedding!

Beautiful couple + beautiful venue + you and your camera = out of this world photos.

Okay this bride is too pretty for words. How come you always get the attractive couples? Could you also ask her where she got her dress from...the lace detail is to die for.
