Wasing Park Wedding Photographer
Oh, how I enjoyed being a Wasing Park wedding photographer! Last summer Berkshire wedding season was definitely a one to remember. Full sunshine and not a cloud in the sky at most weddings. And the recent Wasing Park wedding photography was no exception.
Wasing Park Wedding Venue
Wasing Park is an absolutely gorgeous wedding venue, situated in Berkshire in Wasing. It is just around the corner from Aldermaston. It has quite a nice mixture of buildings who are slightly different architecturally, yet fit together well. I have shot a wedding at the Secret Walled Garden (also belonging to the estate) before. It can be found here and the weather there was so completely different. So I was truly looking forward to photographing the wedding in Wasing Park.
So many wedding guests were approaching me saying I must be really pleased to be photographing a wedding on a day like this. Well, to be honest on those hot days being a Wasing Park wedding photographer is a bit more challenging. The heat is slowing you down as well as the bright sunshine in the summer in the middle of the day are not ideal when it comes to wedding photography. Luckily there is always a bit of open shade to be found on site. Or, even better, we can use the harsh sunlight to create lovely silhouettes with rim light around them.
The Wasing Park wedding venue certainly doesn’t disappoint. It has a beautiful barn, which is a perfect size for an average to large wedding breakfast. The wedding ceremony can be held in three different places: the Parish Church, the Victorian Summerhouse, or the elegant Garden Room. Today the ceremony took place in the Garden Room which was perfect for the weather, with all the windows open the draft kept the wedding guests cool. Having the church within the grounds was great as it is really a picturesque one and we could use it as a backdrop for some of the couple photos.
Wasing Park has also plenty of accommodation, so many of the wedding guests can stay the night, which definitely is a great bonus. Another thing worth mentioning is the food served at the wedding breakfast. Not only was it delicious but also really beautifully presented.
The whole day was run smoothly by Gemma, who was just brilliant on the day.

Wasing Park Wedding Day Photography
Now about the happy couple themselves, Rob and Sam. They both looked absolutely stunning on their Wasing Park wedding day. They are also a couple so down to earth and up for a laugh kind of people, a true pleasure to have around and to photograph.
So after a few getting ready photos (Sam looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress!), I went to the ceremony place where the wedding guests were slowly gathering.
The wedding ceremony at the Garden Room was beautiful and emotional. After that, it was canapes, photos and garden games. Then it was off to the barn for the wedding breakfast. The wedding speeches were great, moving and funny as they should be. The cake cutting and the first dance were also an important and fun part of the day to capture on the camera. The whole wedding day was just lovely. Great couple, beautiful wedding venue and grounds and we certainly made the best out of the light!
