Weddings at the Old Mill, Aldermaston.

If you want an exclusive venue for your wedding then why not check out weddings at The Old Mill Aldermaston in Royal Berkshire one of the top locations in Berkshire. Offering a beautiful riverside setting on the banks of the Kennet. With spectacular grounds it is the perfect backdrop for your wedding photography. Having photographed a number of weddings here you can be assured that Diane and the team deliver a first class service. For me as your wedding photographer I have the opportunity to produce stunning wedding images which will be a truly fabulous memory of the day’s events. My latest commission for wedding photography at The Old Mill in Aldermaston  was that of Rebecca & Christopher a fabulous couple who were a joy to be with. Their wedding guests, family and friends enjoyed a wonderful day despite the brief thunderstorm half way through the afternoon. The ceremony was held in the Stable Room, with the afternoon drinks reception being held in the beautiful grounds. Later in the afternoon we shot some great bride and groom portraits before sitting down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast and partying on into the night.

Gemma & Matt’s wedding at Farnham castle.

Farnham castle is the most stunning wedding venue in Farnham, Surrey, offering a distinct and elegant location for Matt & Gamma’s wedding ceremony and reception.

With beautifully appointed rooms and stunning gardens, this is a must see venue for such a momentous occasion and it was a privilege to photograph the wedding of such a great couple along with their wonderful family and friends.

As a professional wedding photographer, Farnham Castle offers great interior locations, beautiful gardens and the romance of the castle keep. Nothing could offer a better backdrop for those fun, elegant and romantic photographs that I love to create.   Photographers for the day: Alan Bowman and Steve Street.

Free Pre wedding photo shoot.

Love is in the air…Romance rules.

The love between two people will always be a captivating experience and what better way to express their love for each other, than to enjoy a relaxing photo shoot.

I shoot all my free Pre wedding engagement photography at the couples chosen wedding venue. And it is a great opportunity to give the bride and groom time to gain confidence in front of camera. It is also a good time to discuss the type of lifestyle wedding day pictures we are going to achieve on the actual wedding day.

I met Rebecca & Christopher at their wedding venue, the Old Mill at Aldermaston. The Old Mill is an idyllic and romantic setting by the River Kennet in Berkshire. The Mill offers full exclusivity for the whole day from the ceremony through to the evening celebration.

At the wedding venue we discussed a selection of posses and then walked around the grounds stopping at various locations capturing a great set of some 20 to 30 different images for use in the Photographic guest book.

I always meet my clients four weeks before the wedding to allow for time to create either the framed signing board or photographic guest book the couple have chosen as part of their wedding photography package. The framed signing board and the guest book are both fabulous products to have on display at the wedding reception. Their purpose is to enable the guests to add their written congratulations to the happy couple during or after the wedding breakfast.

A fabulous couple…looking forward to the big day.

You’re Romance. You’re Images. Now and Forever.

Wedding photographer in Basingstoke Hampshire

Wedding photographer in Basingstoke Hampshire.

Fabulous wedding photography captured at Audleys Wood hotel Basingstoke. Audleys Wood is a magnificent Victorian mansion, furnished with antiques and hung with paintings, the warm characterful décor complements the elaborate carvings, ornate stonework and beautiful stained glass. It is hard to imagine a more romantic wedding venue in Hampshire. Originally built as a Basingstoke hunting lodge, is now the country retreat you have always imagined, offering exclusive use. The new garden pavilion provides the perfect accompaniment to a Civil Ceremony in Hampshire. Enabling you and your partner to enjoy your wedding breakfast in this self contained facility.

As a wedding photographer, Basingstoke Hampshire. It is only a short journey for me to one of the best venues in Basingstoke. Starting in the wonderful bridal suite with Laura and Julie making their final preparations with some fun and relaxed photographs before meeting Peter and the grooms men for  some great images in the gardens. Proceeding onto the magnificent conservatory room for the civil ceremony and the sun lit the room with a wonderful warm glow. Photographing the exchange of rings and two readings by friends of the bride and groom before going out into the gardens for photographs of family and friends. I then took Laura & Peter away from the crowds for some beautiful portraits of this wonderful couple. Continuing on through the afternoon and into the  night and capturing the speeches and first dance. What a great day!!

Northbrook Park wedding photography

Northbrook Park Wedding Photography. Northbrook Park is a delightful wedding venue situated in the heart of the Surrey countryside close to Farnham. Extensive country gardens and quintessentially English walled gardens make a romantic setting for your wedding photography. For any couple that are having a civil wedding ceremony at Northbrook Park, then the Vine Room is beautifully appointed with dramatic floor to ceiling windows that allow the light to flood into the room. As a wedding photographer this is an essential asset, glorious and plentiful light. The two court yards are ideal for those romantic bride and groom portraits that are a must for the couple’s wedding album.

Following the ceremony, reception drinks and our distinctive style of documentary wedding photography, it is time for the wedding breakfast. Photographic coverage of all the detailed table arrangements and guests having a ball, the speeches and the first dance are all part of our photographic coverage for your wedding day. At a recent wedding I photographed at Northbrook the wedding breakfast took place in the Orangery with its covered glass roof, flagstone and hardwood flooring all add to a wonderful warm feeling as a winter venue and the numerous glass doors open onto the large walled garden, ideal for a summer occasion.

Wedding Album Design

Wedding Album Design

A wedding photographer’s day is not just about being there on the day of the wedding doing the shoot. It’s also about three or four days preparing the images for print. And a further day or so designing the layout of the wedding album. After a long and wonderfully enriching day at a wedding and capturing a thousand or so images the editing and selection process is an art in its own right. Being creative on the day with composition and lighting is now enhanced with the use of software. For me the design layout of a large wedding album is an exciting prospect. Selecting images that complement each other side by side on a page or an opposing page is all about balance and visual dexterity. Will a black and white image work next to two or three colour images on the same page? Sometimes yes sometimes not. Also the bride and groom usually have a colour theme for their wedding and this themed colour or vintage themed wedding backdrop can be used to stir the evocative memory of the day by inlaying the colours in the background of the layout. This recent design illustrates an A3 landscape format recently completed for a client.  Thanks should also go to my wedding album supplier GF Smith for their quality hand finished albums and design software.

Welcome to my new blog page which I hope will be of interest to all my current and future clients. Here in my first post you will see a few images illustrating the type of work I undertake as a Commercial Photographer. As a wedding photographer it is a privilege to be a part of such a joyful occasion with families gathering to celebrate the love of two people.  My recent venture into the world of food photography has brought many new challenges and contacts with some great food specialists and chefs. It’s truly satisfying to produce a food image that reflects the skill and dedication of the creator. Portraiture is a fun aspect to the job knowing that you are capturing the expression of a child that creates such an emotional response for the parents. Helping companies with their commercial needs for imaging has meant that I deal with all aspects of their business imaging requirements. From a simple head shot for the company brochure to three day conferences where I record the whole event. From the delegates arriving, the speakers presentations and through to the evening gala dinner.
