“Just to say thanks once again for inviting us over to Cogges last Sunday.

The photos look great and we thought it was a really great way to organise a wedding fair, with all the products arranged as if it were an actual wedding and made it stand out from the fairs we have attended before.

If we can help out with anything in future or work together in any way please give us a shout.”

“Thanks so much for involving Mabel & Rose – I thought the whole event was brilliant – so well organised and the barn looked truly amazing.

I’m sure it will have given couples lots of ideas and the photographs are great.

Well done you – I hope you’ve given yourself a well deserved pat on the back and manage to get a bit of a rest before you move onto the next one!

Thanks again and yes, very much hope to work with you again in the future.”

“This is the best Wedding Open Day I’ve ever been to.

We loved the Wedding Open Day at Cogges today, it was an amazing collaboration of alternative suppliers and looked absolutely amazing and had a fantastic atmosphere!

It was so much more relaxed and welcoming than the usual wedding fayres that are held. I’m sure all involved and those that visited felt this too.

Congratulations for pulling it all together and the very best of luck with your blogs!”

Box Cottage Photography

Box Cottage Photography logo
As a photographer for over 16 years, assignments have taken we worldwide. I enjoy working locally within West Oxfordshire as much as being commissioned to photograph weddings around the world. I believe the key factor in supplying services is customer satisfaction. Having taken traditional wedding images for a number of years I made the decision in 2015 to take on a new challenge. Now fully trained and licensed by the Civil Aviation Authority to fly commercially, I am proud to be one of very few people permitted to take aerial images of our beautiful area and capture stunning memories. Take a look at some of my wedding clips on YouTube.

Lynn Tierney Ceremonies

As a wedding celebrant, I love spending time getting to know you as a couple, your story, your dreams, what makes you tick as a couple and then using this to create bespoke wedding ceremonies that are all about you – a ceremony that your guests will remember, a ceremony that you will never forget. Using a celebrant opens up so many choices of where and when to hold your ceremony and what to include in it. Truly, your choice, your voice, your ceremony.
