Emma and I were at a new venue for us this year – Cantley House Hotel in Wokingham. I always love photographing at local venues, meeting the team and feeling even more inspired to show off venues at their best. Luckily the weather today was looking good, cold but calm which was perfect. We arrive at Cantley to find Hayley and her wedding party getting ready while Brad was a few doors down. We started capturing all the details – anything that screams ‘wedding’ I tell my couples! before capturing Hayley’s bridal prep with the talented Hayley Penny and Samantha on hair and make-up.
Emma and I then photographed Brad’s groom prep with their gorgeous son Samuel and captured some beautiful moments. After this we headed to the ceremony room which was looking stunning as the sunshine shone through the windows. The ceremony was beautiful – full of laughter, emotion (even the Bestman cried!) and of course love. I was honoured to be able to capture their special day. Afterwards we headed outside for some group shots, ending with a lovely group shot of everyone before walking around the grounds with Hayley and Brad to photograph their couple shots. We decided as the weather was good we would also capture some golden hour/sunset shots later in the day.
Once all had entered for the wedding reception we captured the speeches before letting the wedding party enjoy their food. Afterwards we set up for the cake cutting and first dance shots which were so much fun before capturing lots of the rest of the guests. Emma and I then left the happy couple to enjoy the rest of their wedding day.
A big thank you to the Cantley House Hotel team who were just amazing!
