Many congratulations to Emily and Laurence who tied the knot at St Mary’s Church in Winkfield, Berks followed by a reception at Herons Farm in Pangbourne

I’ve shot many weddings at St Mary’s before so that was nice to be back on familiar ground. Not the most easiest of churches to photograph in ! Not only is it pretty dark but there’s a huge beam right in the centre of the aisle which makes it very difficult when the bride walks up the aisle and then later when the newly weds exit. I therefore have to decide where to stand knowing that they could walk either side of the beam as well as trying to capture the best parts of the church and congregation. Anyhow thankfully that was all OK and the Nikons coped very well with the low light.

After a traditional ceremony and some formal family group shots we headed off to Herons Farm. This is a venue I’ve not shot at before so I was really looking forward to it having heard many good things about it. And I was not disappointed – lots of space and fantastic features including hay lofts where we did some portraits under cover to avoid the rain ! The main barn where the wedding breakfast and dancing was held was decked out with the most eye catching bunting. This was also a very international affair with some of Emily’s family from Poland as well as guests from all over The UK.

After the wedding breakfast and speeches there was the traditional cake cutting before the evening celebrations began with a disco. There was some pretty energetic dancing to say the least into the small hours. This concluded a fantastic day and everyone went home with wonderful memories.

Below are some of my favourites so please have a browse and feel free to add any cooments. Enjoy.
