Rumi and Juande’s Oxford wedding featured a variety of attractions for everyone to enjoy.
The day kicked off with a beautiful ceremony surrounded by stunning posh architecture of Bodleian Libraries’ Convocation House.
On the door step you were invited by string quartet’s music and an overall buzz of excitement. It needs to mentioned that the couple had their family and friends from 20 countries!
Tying the knot was followed by some lovely shots under the legendary Bridge of Sighs where the newly weds were showered with rice according to Bulgarian tradition.
You’d think they all moved on the reception venue straight after, but no – why not have a boat trip on Thames starting from the Folly Bridge instead!
Having caught a good portion of fresh air, it was time for the celebration at the The Principal Oxford Spires Hotel.
Before the sunset we captured some sweet cuddles amongst daffodils promising spring’s arrival despite the naughty aura that day.
Rumi and Juande reordered the usual flow of wedding events by having their first dance just after the starter.
The dance kicked off with a Johann Strauss’s waltz, but then all of a sudden with a touch of a DJ’s magic stick it turned into a Bulgarian dance that within minutes had everyone skipping and snaking across the reception room in one long chain. That was certainly something special to experience and a bit of a challenge (but fun) to photograph.
I loved the common spirit that you could feel in the very friendly crowd!
All the happiness in the world to you guys!
