The Perch Inn Jewish Wedding Photographer Oxford-23Batsheva and Fred had a beautifully laid back Jewish wedding at The Perch Inn on Port Meadow in Oxford. Alice was their wedding photographer and loved being a part of their day. As with a lot of Jewish weddings there was a great energy and a whole lot of dancing. I love Batsheva and Fred’s beautiful Chuppa too, with pictures of their relatives in copper glass frames.

Here’s what Batsheva and Fred had to say about their day:

We met in london….stars were aligned for two world travellers: Batsheva is from NY and Fred from Sydney!

Fred proposed at St. Pancras station….only appropriate for a couple always on the go. The location was the romantic champagne bar next to the Eurostar platform.

We chose to be married at The Perch Inn in Oxford. Oxford has been our based for two years and wanted to invite all of our extended family and friends from across the globe to see the place we call home. The Perch is authentic, laid back and a beautiful little piece of heaven. It encapsulated just what we wanted for the day: a space where everyone felt relaxed.

Fred takes his bow-ties very seriously….so that was key. As for the Bride, she found a dress designer with an outpost in Sydney, New York and London…the only way to get a dress made, fitted and shipped that could keep up with our travel commitments!

We were incredibly lucky that the Aunt of the event manager at the perch is one of the most talented florists in the cotswolds. Gerri Reese from Sweetpeas in Great Tew did all of our flowers….and kept them seasonal, warm, inviting, and just simply natural and spectacular. The english garden of a dream come true!

There is a jewish tradition that when you stand under the wedding canopy all of your relatives, past and present are with you.

Because much of our family couldn’t make the journey …we hung photos of them (both those who have passed and those who were just too far to make the journey from Sydney and America) from our wedding canopy in small antique copper frames.

Our Rabbi, Joel Levy was a most special and unique man who helped us taper our ceremony to make it as meaningful as possible and as egalitarian as it could be.

In Jewish tradition the bride was walked up the aisle by both parents and our first dance was The Horah of Course!

I am a film maker by trade, and when I literally stumbled across the Babb Photo website I knew I had found the right one. Alice was one of the most talented, kind hearted, and wonderful photographers I have ever worked with.

Her lightness of touch, attention to detail, work ethic and general kindness will surely make her most successful in her career. Everyone loved having her and she fit right in with the vibe!

Our advice to other couples is to care little about the party and a lot about each other. Authenticity is the key to good memories, and having Babb Photo as your photographers will ensure they capture that!
