Yujia and Zhihua study and work in Oxford and wanted to get married in the beautiful city before heading back to China. Zhihua was a guest at a fellow students wedding in Cambridge I shot a few years back and loved the film so was keen to have me there on his day. Being a student in the city meant the couple had permission to get married in the stunning University Church of St Mary the Virgin and also had access to some otherwise private spots around Oxford as well as have their reception in the majestic Exeter College. Historic venues have become a bit of specialism of mine and I love taking some time to take some establishing shots of the surrounding area.
Both Zhihua and Yujia gave truly heartfelt speeches during the wedding breakfast, giving me plenty to work with in their film, but the stand out moment of the day had to be the sublime choir who sang during the ceremony, who I had to include in the film.
Their day ended with some live music on the lawn of the college amongst family, friends and colleagues. It was a wonderful day and one it was a pleasure to capture.
