The wedding of Melissa & Jason at le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, Oxford, England

Jason & Melissa’s fabulous wedding at Le Manoir.

Le Manoir, nestled in the picturesque Oxfordshire village of Great Milton Created by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc, Le Manoir has been delighting guests since 1984. A year later it was awarded two Michelin stars, which it has now held for a remarkable 27 years.
Surrounded by lawns, flower borders and orchards, Le Manoir enjoys an idyllic setting. But beyond the eye-catching displays are vegtable and herb gardens that provide the kitchen with ultra-fresh, and often exotic, produce that helps keep the kitchens at the cutting edge of taste.

{rachel + dave}

Hey there…it’s the Vue Chicks! The past few weeks we’ve been tip-toeing, gallivanting, and meandering our way through 2010’s archives! Rachel and Dave’s wedding was one of our favorites…the evening was energizing and utterly intoxicating {figuratively, not literally!}

Abigail Winters - February 11, 2011 - 12:13 pm

Wow … another great photographer on BOWP! I just love the photo of the anticipation and joy you caught on Dave’s face while he waited for his bride to come down the stairs.

Alexandria Kokostatis - February 11, 2011 - 12:21 pm

Very nice wedding images. The photograph of the whole wedding party at the beach under the palm trees is brilliant!

Beautiful, beautiful work. You know what I love best — the images of the couple dancing … very cool!

Maia Chase - February 25, 2011 - 9:51 pm

Hmm … I received an error message so I will try again. Your work is beautiful (all of it) and my favorite photos were of the bride and groom dancing. Such fun .. such emotion.

Robert Speck - March 1, 2011 - 10:29 pm

You managed to capture so many emotions that day — the tears of joy, the pure happiness, as well as so much fun. Beautiful set of images.

Brilliant, They are really beautiful.

From Jeopardy! to Navan, Ireland

On December 30th, Genevieve Sheehan from Tampa Florida & Troy Meyer from Brecksville, Ohio were married in St. Mary’s Church in Navan, Co Meath, where her grandparents had tied the knot 56 years previously. They met through the TV show Jeopardy! – the story behind how they met was so special that that New York Times sent a photographer and reporter to cover the story. Take a look here. These are some of my favourite shots from the day:

Abigail Winters - February 11, 2011 - 12:16 pm

Fascinating black and white photos. And such a wonderful wedding story … meeting on Jeopardy … plus the element of history … marrying in the very same church where her grandparents were married. Thanks for sharing this!

Alexandria Kokostatis - February 11, 2011 - 12:23 pm

The last three images are simply amazing. I keep looking at them over and over again.

Brian, Tampa Wedding Photographer - February 15, 2011 - 1:11 pm

Loving the all B and W… Keep wanting to offer that for my clients… Hmmmm, maybe a new package? Gotta think about that… Nice work here though.

Miranda Isber - February 16, 2011 - 9:24 pm

Exceptional imagery and a beautiful wedding story.

Yvonne Dunnington - February 18, 2011 - 10:43 am

Nora Robinson - February 24, 2011 - 10:27 pm

Amazing photography. You captured the beauty and details of the church so well.

Nancy Shaw - March 1, 2011 - 10:31 pm

As an avid follower of Jeopardy and trivia, this blog posting really caught my eye. A real life wedding story accompanied by gorgeous imagery. Thanks so much!

Mike Isber - March 4, 2011 - 9:13 am

Great use of light. Love your black and whites.

Matthew Lee - March 14, 2011 - 11:25 pm

Such extraordinary work and perfection. You are fabulous and an inspiration to aspiring photographers. And Genevieve and Troy must be over the moon with these fantastic memories to view over and over again. Any bride and groom who is lucky to have you photograph their wedding is lucky indeed. Forget the lottos .. this is much better.

Love black and white for the wedding photojournalism

I love the realism of natural light and the contrast of shades of white and black, I love photography and film scene, the story with images that convey emotion and authenticity; Here are some of my black and white image from recent in the last few weddings last year.

 These images represent my work and my wedding photojournalism

This is raw emotion at its best, well served by the author’s unique photojournalistic look and a “perfect-fitting” B&W. Splendid !

Yvonne Dunnington - February 18, 2011 - 10:44 am
