Thanks from Laura & Simon, Wokefield Park, Mortimer, Berkshire

"Dear Jon

We wanted to thank you so much for the amazing photos you captured for us at our engagement shoot and our wedding in May. You understood exactly what we were looking for and delivered so many images which we love looking back at and which really convey the emotions and happiness of our big day. You also integrated so well into our wedding party, ensuring everyone was photographed. You were a calming and reassuring person to have around during the bridal preparations which was really appreciated!

Our collection of photos is so wonderful and we are having problems narrowing down the selection for our album.

Thank you for providing such fantastic memories of the best day of our lives.

Best wishes

Laura and Simon"

Brighton, Sussex Wedding Photography

Sophie & Tim are getting wed in Cambridge at the Trinity Hall but chose Brighton for their pre wedding shoot.

Here's a small selection of the images from our morning on Brighton Beach:

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Jenny & John, Coworth Park, Ascot

Coworth Park Wedding Photography

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Jenny and John's wedding day in the Tower House at Coworth Park, a fabulous wedding venue just outside Ascot in Berkshire. It was a lovely day with a warm friendly family atmosphere. As Jenny arrived we even got a burst of afternoon sunshine which flooded the ceremony with golden afternoon light and was beautiful for the outdoor shots.

Thank you for a great day

Berkshire wedding Photography, Leanne & Michael, Trunkwell House, Reading 

Trunkwell House Wedding Photography

Leanne & Michael's wedding was at the fantastic Trunkwell House in Beech Hill near Reading. I could tell as soon as arrived it was going to be a lovely day and I was right. Leanne & Michael's families and friends were great fun and and really made the day special! A great atmosphere and lots of personal touches: Friends played music during the ceremony and for the 1st dance, Leanne's dad made the wedding post box, Michael's parents made around a 100 pots of homemade chutney to go with the cheese cake.

It was also great to see Sarah Goddard of Visage silhouettes again too. She is amazing, in waht seems like seconds, she cuts individual silhouettes of all the guests.

Thanks to Peter Craft (The Toastmaster) and the team at Trunkwell for all of of their help and doing such a brilliant job.

Here's a few pictures from the day:

Taplins Place Wedding Photography

Rachel & Adam were married at the lovely Taplins Place Farm near Hartley Wintney in Hampshire. Their ceremony was held outside in the wedding gazebo, before the reception in the side barn. They went for a very "cottagy" feel with an afternoon tea, sandwiches, cakes (lots of cakes!) vintage crockery, wild flowers, summer cordials and a sweetie bar! It was a lovely day with a fantastic atmosphere and a real priviledge to photograph!

We're so pleased we chose you as our wedding photographer!

Thank you so much for all the pre-planning meetings and the pre-wedding shoot which really helped get the most out of the wedding day.  We loved your relaxed nature and you've given us so many photos to treasure.

We've received so many compliments from family and friends about the photos and we all love the slideshow (and choice of accompanying music!).

We'll never recreate the day again, but your photos have captured it perfectly and brings it all back to life every time we look at them.

With lots of thanks and best wishes,

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Marian & Paul, Coworth Park, Ascot, Berkshire

Coworth Park Wedding Photography

Marian and Paul were married at the Holy Trinity Church in Sunningdale, a beautiful church made even more special by the fact that Marian's Parents and Grandparents were married there too! They had booked a horse drawn carriage to take Marian to the Church and on to Coworth Park for the reception. They looked fabulous as they came up Coworth's driveway amongst the spectacular display of wild flowers.

We had a fantastic afternoon in the wild flower meadow,lovely people,  canapes, champagne and Clemenza (The String Trio) playing a wonderful soundtrack. The perfect way to spend a summers afternoon!

Suprises were in store for the wedding breakfast, NJ, Marian's 7 year old nephew got up and sang Gary Barlow's "Sing" to them. He had the whole room in tears guests, waiters, even the photographer! He was brilliant!

Thank you for what was a fantastic day.
