Ashmolean Museum Wedding
I’m originally from Cardiff but have been based in Basingstoke for the last 4 years.
From early 2021 I’ll be based in Banbury and during 2021 and 2022 I’ll be looking to build up my portfolio with weddings from a selection of Oxfordshire wedding venues.
I’ve toured the area looking for some gorgeous wedding venues that I would love to add to my portfolio and I’m offering special rates for 1st and 2nd bookings at specific venues.
I love grand weddings in historical locations, and Oxfordshire has some truly unique venues to get married in! The Ashmolean Museum looks like a great location for a wedding, and I’d love to shoot there!
This page is a little sparse right now, but I’ll be adding photo and video content in the coming weeks once lockdown has ended and I start to get settled into my new location. I’m so excited to be moving to Banbury!
