Wedding Photography at Radley College

Radley College in Oxfordshire is best known as a highly respected boarding school for boys, but one late September weekend in 2021 its 800-acre campus and grand buildings also made a stunning venue for the wedding of Georgina and George.

Arriving at Radley College for the first time I was immediately struck both by the expansiveness of the grounds and the grandeur of the buildings. I knew this was going to be a wonderful wedding to photograph.

Amongst its many aesthetic attributes the college boasts an impressive chapel that quite frankly you don’t expect to find in an educational establishment. When I turned the corner and saw it for the first time I was quite taken aback! What a memorable venue to make your vows in!

The weather was overcast but for most of the day the rain held off, which not only meant that the light was perfect for shooting documentary wedding photography, but drinks and canapes could be enjoyed by everyone outdoors amongst the splendid architexture.

It also meant that Georgina and George were able to take a first spin as man and wife in a fantastic open top vintage Jaguar, something that would have definitely been scuppered by the rain!

By the time the heavens did open in the evening I don’t think anybody really cared! They were all too busy throwing shapes and busting moves on the packed dance floor to the tunes provided by the highly energetic live band.

It was a day and a venue ideally suited to my style of documentary wedding photography and I thoroughly enjoyed being there to capture George and Georgina’s wedding story.
