One of Berkshire’s best kept secrets, this quintessentially English country house is set in 12 acres of wooded, landscaped gardens. It is the perfect wedding venue for a Master photographer. Both outdoor and indoor photo opportunities, with great lighting for photographing wedding flowers and the stunningly decorated rooms. A venue like this goes to prove it is possible to have a wonderful wedding day in the winter months.
What an entrance!! The Bride and Groom arriving at The Elvetham Hotel in Hampshire in a helicopter- a stunning 19th Century mansion located near Reading and Basingstoke. You’ll see the Toast Master in the background waiting expectantly for the helicopter to land. It was a super way to start the reception at this rather wonderful hotel. The grounds and hotel are truly beautiful – definitely a top hat Wedding!
Foxhills Hotel and Resort, near London and Heathrow airport in Surrey England UK, is a luxury hotel and sports resort. It is an amazing venue offering great photo opportunities.

A very grand Basildon Park – a country house situated just south of Goring-on-Thames and Streatley in Berkshire, between the villages of Upper Basildon and Lower Basildon. It is owned by the National Trust and is a Grade I listed building.

Bearwood College, near Wokingham in Berkshire is a spectacular Victorian Mansion House and it’s extensive grounds offer a magnificent setting for a Wedding and great photography opportunities.

BIJOU’S Cain Manor is an exquisite Elizabethan oak-framed manor house near Farnham, Surrey. It is a stunning venue for a Wedding, particularly on such a lovely sunny summer’s day. How could I resist such an intimate and romantic shot in the candle light of the Inglenook fireplace. The lavender in the garden under the arbor made for a quiet moment for the bride and groom.
It was a sunny but cold Winter Wedding at the Royal Berkshire Hotel. Great late afternoon sunshine provided the right romantic mood for this shot.
The Casa Hotel is housed in a part 17th century building and set within its own large tranquil and rural surrounds in Yateley in Hampshire. This Wedding was very romantic, the couple clearly enjoying time on their own in the beautiful grounds. The Hotel has worked hard to have many great spots for taking beautiful wedding photos – the pagoda in the background and the steps in the foreground make it a photographers dream venue.
