MEET LUXURY OXFORDSHIRE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER DAVID BOSTOCK PHOTOGRAPHY
Your wedding day is an elaborate tapestry made up of dazzlingly precious moments, stitched together to create something unforgettable. I pride myself on never missing even the most fleeting of memories: a father walking his daughter down the aisle to meet her groom; that very first time the groom catches sight of his bride; that first kiss as man and wife. These are the kind of uniquely beautiful shots that simply don’t repeat themselves. Weddings are all about love – love between the couple and the love from family and friends. As your wedding photographer, I’ll tell the story of your day – from the big ‘I do’s to the intimate little smiles and happy tears – to create authentic images you’ll treasure forever.
I’m David Bostock, an experienced, multi award-winning Oxfordshire wedding photographer, who has shot more than 500 weddings over the past 14 years. I love providing a really personal, bespoke service to my clients, which is why I choose to only photograph 30 weddings a year. If you’d like to find out more about what I do, or have any questions, I’d love to hear from you.
A WEDDING ALBUM IS
to future generations

WHY HIRE ME? – A SEASONED AND QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL MASTER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IN OXFORDSHIRE
It takes a wedding photographer many, many years to define their own style and I have had more than 14 years’ experience of exclusively photographing over 500 weddings in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, London and further afield to hone my craft.
I am now actively recommended by many of the top wedding venues in the home counties, including Hedsor House, Caswell House, Kirtlington Park, The Ashmolean and The Crazy Bear as one of their preferred partner photographers. I am extremely proud of the fact they choose to trust and recommend me to their wedding couples.
I’m a firm believer that if you want to be an expert in your chosen field you need to ‘walk the walk’ not just ‘talk the talk’, and there is simply no substitute for shooting weddings week in, week out, in every type of weather condition. Every couple hopes for the perfect weather for their big day – as do I for them – but if the weather is less than kind, you can be confident I have the experience to cope. Sun, rain, hailstones as big as golf balls (hammering on the marquee roof so loud that you can barely hear the speeches!), heavy snow where only a neighbour’s 4×4 has been able to get the bride to the church and hurricane-force winds that have sent veils sailing away, I’ve been there, seen it, done it and definitely have the t-shirt!
I’ve photographed weddings of all sizes, from intimate ceremonies with only the couple, the registrar and myself present, with me acting as their witness, to 500-600 guests at extravagant Asian weddings running over several days – and everything in between. I have lots of experience photographing non-religious, civil and celebrant ceremonies, traditional English church weddings, Hindu weddings, Sikh weddings, Indian Muslim weddings, Mehndi ceremonies, Persian weddings, Chinese weddings, Malay weddings, Danish weddings and pretty much anything else you can think of.
I photograph indoor ceremonies in churches, romantically lit by just candlelight and so dark that I can only just see my camera, to the brightest of sunny outdoor ceremonies.
I work with only the highest quality, Canon professional full-frame mirrorless cameras and a range of super-fast professional lenses. I have used the Canon professional system since day one of my photography career – I know it inside out and know it will always deliver high-quality images, even when the lighting gets really tough. If there is light there, I will use it; if not, I bring my own and create the light.
Couples choosing me to document their wedding through my lens really are in the safest of hands. Why would you not hire the best photographer you can afford, for one of the most important days in your life?
