It’s official. I’m in love… With Springtime!
After what has seemed like a never-ending winter – especially with these recent random snow flurries – the smallest signs of Spring are so very welcome, don’t you think?
Luckily enough, the day that the clocks sprung forward was very much a Spring-like day in Oxford, as the warming sun broke through the clouds, and the dew-glistening daffodils danced in the light breeze…
Why, do I hear you ask, is this of any relevance at all?
Well, on the 25th March I had the pleasure of photographing Jo and Declan in central Oxford, so a dry and warm day was perfect. The lovely couple will marry at St Michael at the North Gate in just over a month’s time. Sadly however, they aren’t able to afford a photographer for their wedding, so winning a complimentary engagement shoot in my Christmas prize draw was an opportunity they decided they couldn’t miss!
Jo and Declan are the proud parents of a 3-year-old daughter. The idea of having a relaxed stroll around Oxford just the 2 of them without having to worry about the demands of their daughter was therefore a rare and special occasion. The fact that they had a photographer following them the whole time was admittedly a little strange and unusual for them. But once they forgot all about me and just got on with enjoying spending some quality time together in a city they love, they were soon in their element.
To Jo and Declan – wishing you a wonderful married life together, and I hope that in the years to come that these photos will bring back many happy memories!
