Today I am thrilled to share the sensational Aynhoe Park wedding of Hannah & Henry in rural Oxfordshire. Where to begin with this extraordinary wedding? The luxury and undoubtedly unique wedding venue of Aynhoe Park – a Grade I listed Palladian style country house set in 250 glorious acres of gardens designed by none other than Capability Brown. Inside the house are some of the most stunning collection of  treasures from across the globe, collected by owner and former music impresario James Perkins. Every room is a visual delight for the eyes and a dream for taxidermists. What about a lion sporting a crown, a polar bear wearing goggles with a union flag draped across its back, an adult giraffe, a unicorn gracing a piano as well as a multitude of marble statues to rival The Uffizi. Aynhoe Park is exceptional! Hannah & Henry married in The Orangery, a breathtaking room with double height ceilings with light that seemed to stream in from every available piece of glass. In the gardens to the rear Hannah and Henry had created their very own vintage fair for their guests including a coconut shy, a wooden skittles alley, a popcorn vendor, hoopla, mini-archery as well as a wonderful 1930’s style aluminum airstream photo booth. As if to tie in with the vintage feel, Hannah and Henry had created their own Bell Tent Village where most of the wedding guests were staying. The wedding breakfast was held in a vast tipi, complete with bunting and an abundance of shabby chic details including lots of vintage silverware for the flowers on the tables. I was also particularly taken with the penguin wedding cake. Hannah looked absolutely divine in a Jenny Packham dress with a stunning deco style headpiece finished off with Emmy shoes, while Henry looked super in a beautiful navy suit from Gieves & Hawkes and shoes from Jeffrey West. The dazzling wedding floristry came courtesy of Bella & Fifi. Over the last few years I have seen some remarkable weddings though Hannah & Henry’s utterly gorgeous Aynhoe Park wedding, would have to be one of my all time favourite weddings ever.

    Dear Jay
    Just looked through the photos and I am very glad to be able to make a comment. I know that as Hannah’s dad I will have a touch of bias, but even putting that aside I think they are just fantastic.
    It is the subtlety of some of the less obvious shots and the overall feeling of the occasion that you have so caught, they not only bring back the whole event they evoke and highlight the emotion of the wedding, brilliant photography, and a very nice man to boot.
    Thank you so much, Bill.ReplyCancel
