Hello and welcome to The Oxford Wedding Blog! I’m, Philippa, and this is my little Oxford wedding photography blog.
THE STORY BEHIND THE OXFORD WEDDING BLOG
My husband and I married three years ago, and when we were planning our wedding, we found it especially hard to find what we were looking for on our doorstep in Oxford. We had to dig so deep to find an alternative wedding venue in the Oxfordshire county. The only thing Google was offering us was la-di-da traditional venues, golf clubs, expensive dresses, chairs with bows, and cookie cutters. If you love this sort of thing that is totally cool, but this was the total opposite of what we wanted.
Our wedding ended up being everything we dreamed up and more and the hard work paid off (you can see it here: A OXFORDSHIRE WEDDING FESTIVAL), but the majority of our findings came our way via word of mouth.
So with no immediate go-to place, for the slightly alternative Oxford couple, I wanted a place to share my Oxford wedding photography, stories, suppliers, venues and couples.
WHAT IS THE OXFORD WEDDING BLOG?
The Oxford Wedding Blog shares all the ace ideas and inspiration that I come across as an Oxford wedding photographer, and all the hidden gems I find in Oxfordshire which I know you guys will love.
Wedding planning is a wonderful, slightly overwhelming beast, and so my aim is to do a lot of the leg work for you and share all my Oxfordshire findings with you in this blog.
I’ll also be sharing ace weddings, fantastic suppliers, alternative venues, independent businesses, DIY inspiration, and any advice I come across that I think may help you plan your awesome day in this stunning county.
WHO IS THE OXFORD WEDDING BLOG FOR?
This blog is for anyone planning their wedding in Oxford or Oxfordshire, looking for inspiration on how to plan a relaxed, informal wedding, which may possibly be seen as a little different.
