Spread Eagle Thame Wedding – Steph & Jordan
The funky Spread Eagle Thame venue hosting an awesome family and friends wedding celebration!
I’ve known Stephanie for a few years and to be invited around to their house last year to discuss being her wedding photographer was just awesome. This was the first time I had met her fiance Jordan, whose sense of humour is just off this planet. The first meeting, the pre-wedding shoot and on the wedding day, it just keeps coming, Jordan – still laughing fella!
On the morning of the wedding at The Spread Eagle Hotel, Steph’s mum Sarah definitely called it correctly by saying Steph was the most chilled and laid back bride ever, Steph was just having a laugh with the bridesmaids having a few drinks, making sure mum and the bridesmaids were all good, but I guess being an NHS nurse something as straight forward and planned as a wedding day was just a walk in the park. All taken in your stride and fair play to you Steph!
One thing on my arrival at the venue that did surprise me in a very pleasant way, was The Spread Eagle hotel, it had recently undergone a level of refurbishment and the interior décor was quite funky, it really was a great environment to be shooting a wedding, really loved the detail. The day was just awesome, everyone was just having a great time, Jordan’s grooms speech was just something special, mainly as it was about him, but I think he did mention Steph at least a few times, so I take my hat off to you fella, good work. A notable mention goes to the bridesmaid who openly stated early in the evening ‘I’m 10/10 happy for Steph and Jordan and I’m at a steady happy 8/10 drunk’, despite hitting a 15/10 drunk later on still kept going and was so nice with it! And also to the Chinese tourist who was staying in the hotel and was invited in to one of the evening group shots, so funny.
I’d like to offer a massive congratulations to Steph and Jordan for allowing me to be a part of their day at The Spread Eagle Hotel in Thame, also for looking after me and keeping me fed and watered the entire day. Well done also for having a second wedding cake made from a certain well know donut brand, my fave, thank you!
