Daryl & Perry

Having started our wedding photography business in January 2012, we were aware that we might have reached a bit of a milestone this year – our 100th wedding! After quite a lot of arithmetic (yes, we used a spreadsheet) we have worked out that the wedding of Daryl and Perry was number 100 ! Thank you Daryl and Perry.

Our First Wedding – Barbara & Andrew

So it seemed to us to be an appropriate moment for reflection and we couldn’t help but think back to Barbara and Andrew, who gave us our very first job as wedding photographers. We were just a friend of a friend to them and they had never met us before so they really took a bit of a punt on us. We had been keen photographers for some time but had never photographed a wedding (we did tell them this – honest). So a huge thank you to both of you, Barbara and Andrew!

Cantley House Hotel Wedding Photography Venue

Daryl and Perry were married in the beautiful Cantley House Hotel near Wokingham. Built in 1880, Cantley House is a lovely venue for an intimate wedding. So quiet and secluded, it feels like you’re getting married in a private stately home. The gardens are lovely with well kept lawns, water features, manicured shrubs and many trees. The interior of the buildings are a mixture of modern luxury and traditional style. There was no shortage of spots for all of the photographs we wanted. With so many good interior locations, a little rain would not effect the photography at all. Always something to consider with a venue. Cantley House Hotel is a great venue for wedding photography.

Daryl and Perry

Daryl and Perry’s wedding had a vintage theme with a delicate cream and antique pink colour scheme. Daryl had organised so many wonderful details, including making all the stationary herself. Everywhere we turned there was something lovely to photograph. Including Daryl’s dress which was simply breathtaking. We also have to give a special mention to Sara at Expressit Flowers. Sara provided a quite stunning array of flowers for the day. We loved the bridal bouquet with the little cameo photos of loved ones. Congratulations again Daryl and Perry and thank you for letting us share some of your photos on our blog!

Beth and Cory

Beth and Cory’s wedding was such a treat for us to photograph! It’s not often that we get to photograph a wedding somewhere as stunning as Winchester Cathedral!! Imagine being the bride and having to walk down an aisle that is 110m long!! Of course, Beth took it all perfectly in her stride, and looked beautiful in her über-stylish two piece wedding dress from The Bridal Lounge set off beautifully by her hand-tied bouquet with long, flowing ribbons.

Even with the stunning grandeur of getting married in Winchester Cathedral, Beth and Cory had such a relaxed and fun wedding. Their reception was held in a big marquee at the Greyhound on the Test in Stockbridge – a beautiful country hotel and pub, which, as the name suggests is located on the banks of the river Test. It was an idyllic spot for a wedding reception and a perfect setting for us for taking photos!

Beth and Cory also had lots of wonderfully quirky little details at their wedding which are always great fun for us to photograph. We particularly loved the red London bus for the guests, the cheese wheel wedding cake and the fantastic coloured paper lanterns decorating the roof of the marquee. All in all it was a perfect day and we had so much fun photographing it.

..and we certainly won’t forget hearing the organ in Winchester Cathedral belting out the theme tune to Star Wars as the bride and groom left the ceremony. I bet it’s not often you hear that!!

Congratulations again to Beth and Cory and thank you for letting us share some of the images from your wedding on our blog. It really was an absolute pleasure photographing your wedding!
