How did you find and choose your wedding venue, Caswell House, Oxford?
We found our venue purely by research on venues in the countryside and we chose Caswell House, Oxford because of their flexibility and beautiful setting. After booking everyone told us how wonderful they are to work with which reaffirmed our choice.
Tell us about your wedding dress; the designer, how long it took you to find the one?
Beej was lucky enough to have two! One was an Indian lengha consisting of a heavily embroidered floral blush pink skirt and matching cap-sleeved crop top with a green net veil.
The second was a simple sleek white lace dress with a moonstone belt. I cant recall the name of the designee but I will drop it over to you as soon as I do. The dress had the royal emblem inside so he was also made clothes for the royals. (Stephen something)...
Tell us about what the Groomsmen wore?
Blue suits, white shirts with blush pink ties and a matching button hole.

Great big thanks to our videographer of course, doing more than just filming but escorting the bride to her room, bringing her prosecco when she needed a drink and helping the day run smoothly. Also like to give a special thanks to our photographer who worked very hard that day to capture all of our special moments and to Kirsten and the team at Caswell who helped the day run so smoothly.
