Bodleian Library Wedding Videographer
I love wedding videography because it gives me an opportunity to get up close with people and really show off how beautiful they are inside and out. This was exemplified when Carolina + Lucien asked me to be their Bodleian Library wedding videographer.
A Remarkable Oxford Wedding Venue
The wedding of Carolina and Lucien was a remarkable affair in a contained environment. The ceremony took place at Convocation House, with champagne reception at Sheldonian followed by the evening reception in the Bodleian Library. It was a lot of fun exploring this part of Oxford and seeing all the beautiful architecture! It’s such an incredible place with so much history behind it! It’s a lovely place for a wedding; there are so many gorgeous rooms, and we could choose whichever ones we liked. It was quite an unusual experience filming in such a historic location, but I think it turned out well.
The library is one of the most famous buildings in Oxford, and it has a number of unique features that make it an excellent venue for filming. It was founded by Sir Thomas Bodley, who was Chancellor of the University at the time, in 1598. It was originally housed in a building on Broad Street but moved to its current location on Broad Street in 1602. In 1837, it was extended by Sir Thomas Jackson who added the tower that can be seen today. The Bodleian Library is known for its beautiful stained glass windows designed by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones, as well as its magnificent skylight which is supported by 300 columns each made from Portland stone!

The day itself started with calm preparations as both Carolina and Lucien remained in the shade as the sun beat down outside. Carolina’s family traveled from Brazil to join us for their day. Due to government restrictions at the time, many of her extended family were unable to make it. came to us because they wanted something special, something intimate and personal. They didn’t want just any wedding video, but one that would capture their special day in its entirety. They wanted something that would be timeless, something they could watch over and over again as years went by and their love stayed strong.
