It’s hard not to be disappointed when the weather forecast isn’t looking good for your big day but if it affected Simon and Kirsty, they didn’t let it show. In the end we got through the ceremony and everyone safely to the beautiful marquee reception at the brides parents house in Crowthorne before it started chucking it down properly. Simon and Kirsty were brilliant on the day, these two were clearly very much in love and it was a pleasure to be there to document the ceremony and the celebrations.
Wedding receptions arranged at home are always a bit more special and personalised and the huge marquee looked fantastic when it was all set up in the morning as I arrived to photograph the bride and her family. Clarissa and the team from The Great Food Company had done a terrific job preparing for the reception and everything looked amazing.
So here’s a few favourites as usual – such a great day, I can’t wait to show the couple all of the photographs.

Off to the reception in nearby Crowthorne.
I love this idea at weddings – for me, it’s what the photography is all about. I always feel that the real value of wedding photography is apparent in fifty years time.
An amazing Lego wedding cake.
We could tell it was going to hammer down at any minute so we ran outside for a very speedy bride and groom portrait session…

‘Bathsheba’s Wedding’ , a great ceilidh band were there to entertain the guests.
Thanks again Kirsty and Simon, enjoy Japan!
