Lovely Spring Cogges Farm Wedding of Jenni & Jake
It’s almost exactly a year since I photographed the simply gorgeous Cogges Farm wedding of Jenni & Jake.
I spent a little time with Jenni at her flat, before heading over to The Church of St Michael and All Angel’s, Summertown for the ceremony.
I think it’s fair to say the weather gods were out in force and not only did we have some beautiful light during the ceremony, but the whole day was just warm and lovely.
We don’t know where to start: these photographs of our Cogges Farm wedding are sensational. It was amazing looking through them all (a million times!) last night, and it brought back so many incredible emotions from the day. I cannot believe how you have captured so many fantastic moments, and in addition, have picked out so many other details from the wedding day cards in my flat to the table settings in the barn. And the photographs of the inside of the church – wow! I have never seen pictures of the inside of that church that do the people and the building justice, but you have captured the grandeur of the building and yet the intimacy of our ceremony… and the light! The light that came into the window as we were saying the prayers was a gift from above (we couldn’t even see it from where we were at kneeling at the front) and you caught that fantastically.
These are pictures we will have for the rest of our lives and will help us to sustain the already amazing memories we have of the day. You are a miracle worker, and it felt like you knew what our day was all about from start to finish. Thank you so much.
We knew we’d managed to nab a brilliant wedding photographer, but you deserve a thousand more accolades than my words can do justice to.
Hope to meet you again sometime! – Jenni and Jake
There was a real feeling of happiness during and after the ceremony, and a lot of Jenni’s students turned up to congratulate her too, which was lovely to see.
Speeches & Dancing
Jenni & Jake’s wedding celebration continued at Cogges Farm, which is a really charming working farm in Oxfordshire. It was the first time I’d shot a Cogges Farm Wedding and it’s certainly a venue I hope to visit again soon.
The speeches were before the meal and I think it’s always a mark of the wedding itself when I find myself smiling and laughing behind the camera as the speeches unfold.
Once Jenni & Jake had been announced into the wedding breakfast, and after everybody had eaten a very hearty meal, the dancing commenced in the barn with an amazingly planned routine by both Jenni & Jake.
Here are a few images from their Cogges Farm Wedding – I hope you enjoy looking at them.

What is Documentary Wedding Photography?
One of the questions I get asked a lot is; What is Documentary Wedding Photography?
The answer, briefly, is wedding photography where you are allowed to relax and enjoy the day with your friends and family without the intervention or direction of a photographer.
I’ve written a whole piece specifically about documentary wedding photography and why I shoot in that style.Read more about my Documentary Wedding Photography
