One of the things I love about shooting weddings is that I get to discover some hidden gems. I never really explored Abingdon, a market town just outside of Oxford, until recently. Faye and Nick, who recently moved to the area from London, wanted a relaxed garden wedding and found the perfect low key venue at Coesner’s House. It has lovely grounds right along the river and is just a couple of blocks from the registry office. In addition to some lovely old architecture and riverside location, Abingdon boasts it’s own donkey sanctuary. What better way to make a wedding unique than to adopt a sweet donkey for the day! I love Faye’s dress and the bouquets!I love Nick’s funky ‘ring’ tattoo!
