Beaumont House Wedding Photography, Gemma & Paul, Windsor, Berkshire

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Beaumont-House-wedding

So far this year (thanks to the stormy weather) I've had to postpone a number of pre wedding shoots, so it was especially lovely to actually get out in the sunshine taking some pictures with Gemma and Paul at Beaumont House in Windsor. A fantastic wedding venue wich I'm really excited about photographing their wedding here in just a couple of weeks time. I was lucky enough to have photographed Gemma's cousin Jo's wedding a couple of years ago at Painshill Park, so it's going to be great to see her family again!

Here's a few images from our mornings session at Beaumont House:

Wasing Park Wedding Photography, Laura & Robbie, Hampshire

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Wasing Park wedding

I met Laura and Robbie a couple of years ago when I photographed her sister Hannah's wedding at Rivervale Barn. Photographing weddings is a fabulous thing to do anyway but it's always that bit extra special when you already know at least half of the family. They're getting married at Wasing Park in Aldermaston which happens to be one of my favourite local wedding venues... So all in all I'm really excited about the wedding!

We did a pre wedding shoot in advance of the wedding at Morgaston woods, not too far from Wasing Park hoping to capture some of the Autumnal colours, here are few images from our mornings walk:

Kings Arms Hotel Wedding Photography, Alex & Kevin's pre wedding shoot, Berkhampstead Castle

Buckinghamshire Photography, Kings Arms Hotel Wedding

I got up bright and early on Sunday morning to head for Alex & Kevin's pre wedding shoot. It was pouring with rain. I checked the forecast, it confirmed that it was going to continue all day.  I texted Alex, she said it was fine in Berkhampstead. Wasn't sure how that could be but set off anyway. The M4 and M25 were like rivers but as I approached Berkhampstead Castle it seemed like there was a sole patch of blue sky hanging overhead, and sure enough it was a beautiful morning.

They bought their children along too, who are so excited about the wedding, which is at the end of November at the Kings Arms Hotel in Berkhampstead. I seemed to take a lot of shots in a short space of time, shots of Alex and Kevin in one direction then the children in another.

Surrey Wedding Photography, Jenny & Paul's pre wedding photography, Little Frensham

Surrey Wedding Photography, northbrook Park Wedding

Jenny & Paul had a meeting at Northbrook last week to go over the final details of their wedding day, so we arranged to meet up afterwards for the pre wedding shoot and meeting at Little Frensham Pond. Just a few miles from Northbrook Park, it's a beautiful location at any time of year but in September the heather is out in all it's glory and the leaves are just beginning to change to their Autumn colours. A beautiful morning and great company, thanks! Really looking forward to the wedding day!

Hannah and Aaron chose Morgaston woods for their pre wedding shoot but are getting married in a few weeks time at Rivervale Barn in Yateley, Hampshire. Hannah was a bridesmaid at Lucy and Dan's wedding which I photographed almost exactly 3 years ago at Nortbrook Park so it's a real honour to have the opportunity to photograph her wedding too!

It was a real pleasure meeting up at Morgaston, the weather, for once, was gorgeous and it finally felt like spring in Hampshire!

Becky & Paul are getting married later this year at the Chapel in Wasing Park near Aldermaston in Hampshire but chose Caversham Court for their pre wedding shoot.
