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:

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.

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Emma & Rob, Easthampstead Park, Wokingham

Easthampstead Park Wedding Photography

Emma & Rob were married at St Mary's Church in Beech Hill near Reading before their reception at Easthampstead Park near Wokingham. My day started though with Emma and her bridesmaids and parents getting ready at home. There was a lovely atmosphere which continued throughout their day. The weather looked promising in the morning but unfortuneatley took a turn for the worse during the afternoon, no matter though, I love the shots of Emma with the wind in her hair and the umbrella's made some great pictures too.

Bearwood College Wedding Photography, Karen & Ian, Wokingham, Berkshire

Bearwood College Wedding

Karen and Ian's Wedding day at Bearwood College near Wokingham was a fabulous day. The weather wasn't the best but other than having to swap the outdoor shots around a bit it didn't seem to matter at all.

I arrived at Karen's just before 11:00 to photograph Karen and her 2 bridesmaids getting ready and it wasn't long before they got started on Champagne and Pizzas, I can't think of many better ways to start a day! The flowers, were delivered shortly afterwards, they looked stunning. The pink Calla Lilies in the bouquets and buttonholes were absolutely beautiful. Henry the 1949 Bentley Limo arrived promptly reminding everybody that that time was getting on.

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Lorraine & Shane's Wedding Day at Trunkwell House 

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Lorraine & Shane's Wedding day at Trunkwell House in Beech Hill near Reading, Berkshire. I don't think I've had to use my umbrella all year but it seems to be getting plenty of use in August. To be fair the rain held off long enough to do all of the group shots but the heavens opened while we out taking pictures of Lorraine & Shane, it wasn't a problem,  out came the umbrella, and we managed to get some lovely rainy wedding day images.

Laura & Simon were married at St Barnabas Church in Emmer Green with reception at Wokefield Park in Mortimer, Berkshire. Laura and Simon had spent loads of time preparing some lovely touches for the wedding day. For example they had saved up rose petals and dried them to use for the confetti, They painted the cake figures so they looked like them, plus they hand decorated the "MR & MRS", to name but a few of the details.

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Clare & Mike's Cantley House Wedding, Wokingham, Berkshire

I had the very great pleasure of photographing Clare & Mike's weddding day at Cantley House Hotel in Wokingham, Berkshire. I can honestly say that I haven't met a couple so openly excited about their wedding day as Clare & Mike. I knew within minutes of arriving it was going to be a lovely day and I wasn't dissapointed. Between them they managed to keep either a smile on my face, a tear in my eye, or both for the whole day!

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Hayley & Peter's pre wedding shoot, Pangbourne 

I met up with Hayley and Peter a couple of weeks ago on a cold and damp Thursday morning in Pangbourne. We started with a coffee and went through the details of their wedding day before walking down the banks of the Thames for a few pictures. Despite the weather and the mud we had a great time, Peter even managed a gallant moment piggy-backing Hayley over the mud.

I'm really looking forward to the wedding in March in Shiplake!

Julia & Steve's Wedding Photography, St Michael's Church, Bray and Oakley Court, Windsor, Berkshire

I had the great pleasure of Photographing Julia and Steve's Wedding Day at St Michael's Church in Bray and The Oakley Court Hotel in Windsor.

Julia was christened at St Michael's so the church was the perfect location for the wedding. The Oakley Court, just 5 minutes from the church, with it's Thameside location and Gothic styling is an absolutely stunning venue was chosen for the reception.

There were some lovely touches and moments: such as the Landau from Haydn Webb Carriages which took Julia to the church and was a compete surprise for Steve; all of the groomsmen in their Top Hats, Tails and canes; Julia's Dad delivered an emotional and moving speech, even I was getting tearful; Julia and Steve had rehearsed a waltz for the first dance.  Altogether it was a fantastic day!

Dan & Dani's Wedding Photography, Taplow House, Berkshire

I had the very great pleasure of shooting Dan and Dani's wedding at the Taplow House Hotel, a beautiful venue situated just outside Maidenhead in Berkshire. One of the many things I love about being a wedding photographer is seeing families and friends all coming together to celebrate the wedding day. At Dan & Dani's wedding the strong bond between their families and friends was immediately apparent and made it even more special.

My thanks to everyone, for making me feel so welcome, I had a fantastic time!
