The Forbury Hotel, Kelly & Rod, Reading, Berkshire

The Forbury Hotel Wedding Photography, Reading, Berkshire

Kelly & Rod were married at Our Lady St Annes church in Caversham with a little detour to a very busy Forbury Gardens before their intimate reception at the beautiful Forbury Hotel in Reading town centre.

I loved the chinese influences on the reception, particularly the tea ceremony with Kelly & Rod in the traditional costumes.

Please take a second to browse through a few of the images from Kelly and Rod's Forbury Hotel Wedding photography:

Hampshire Wedding Photography, Emma & Mark, Warbrook House, Eversley

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Warbrook House

Emma & Mark were married at St Giles in Reading before a wonderful wedding reception at the beautiful Warbrook House near Eversley in Hampshire. I met Emma while she was getting ready at Warbrook in the morning. Many of their guests were staying there so Emma & Mark had organised a vintage bus from Ages Past to take the guest to the church in Reading. We were hoping to do a few a group shots at  St Giles but the torrential rain made us change our minds pretty quick and head straight back to Warbrook. Not before getting a few great shots with the umbrellas!

Here are a few images from Emma & Mark's wonderful Warbrook House wedding:

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Wokefield Park

I had a ball photographing Vicky and Ben's wedding day at Wokefield Park near Reading in Berkshire. Lots of laughter, lots of tears and lots of fun. A great day! And if that wasn't enough we were lucky enough to have a beautiful sunny day at Wokefield. Here's a few of the images from the day that tell the story of the day:

Berkshire Pre Wedding Photography, Becky & Paul, Caversham Court, Reading Berkshire

Wasing Park Wedding Photography

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. It was an obvious choice for them really. Not only is it a 5 minute walk from home for them but Paul popped the big question sitting on one of the benches featured in the shots below.

Here's a few images from our mornings walk in Caversham Court and along the Thames:

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"

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, 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.

Berkshire Wedding Photography, Laura & Simon's Wokefield Park Wedding

wokefield park, berkshire wedding photographer

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.
