As I said in the sneak peek for this wedding, it was a really great way to start a year with wedding photography at Hall Place in Berkshire. I only met Katy and Luis just before Christmas as they live out in Paraguay, thankfully it was obvious from the moment I met them what a lovely couple they were so I was really looking forward to this day.
After a week of horrendous weather, I was delighted to wake up to clear blue skies and the sort of day that you can only dream about for a January wedding. I drove over to Katys parents (rather stunning) house in Dorney Reach for the bridal prep, where everyone was as cool and as calm as can be. A few detail shots, including those incredible Irregular Choice shoes and the beautiful english flowers for the bouquets, a bit of bridal prep and off we went to St Josephs in Maidenhead for the ceremony. Full catholic mass, a choir and some musical interludes (including Katys brother on the violin) all bathed in gorgeous winter light was followed by a drink or two and a chat in the accompanying church hall afterwards.
From here we headed over to the amazing Hall Place for the reception. It’s a really beautiful venue with fantastic staff and set the scene for a really lovely afternoon and evening. There were some really lovely little details for the reception, from the Wish Tree to the little moss covered chalk board table names (and of course the amazing Weddington Boots), to the unique Cheesecake, so for a detail junky like me, I was in heaven.
It was a real pleasure to be a part of the day, hopefully I have done it some justice! If you are here looking for Hall Place Wedding Photography and would like to have a chat, please get in touch and I would love to talk through the options. Now, on to the pictures…
