Bridal Prep – Caversham
I shot this wedding with a friend of mine who knew the couple, so it was a very relaxed affair. I’ve not shot a wedding at Shiplake College before but as Henley is close to where I live I was very keen to see it. Andrew went off to cover the groom while I started with bridal prep at the Kelly’s house in Caversham. As most of my weddings these days seem to happen miles away it was nice to have a local one for a change!
I always enjoy bridal prep, it’s usually a really relaxed part of the day. It’s also the part of the day where I get to know the bridal party. This was all very relaxed and the kids were beautifully behaved.
Next it was on to Shiplake College, a beautiful venue near Henley. During term time this is a school of course, but in the holidays it’s a great wedding venue. The Minstrels Gallery is where the ceremony is held. Outside there are fantastic grounds. Here are some of the shots.
When I’m shooting the ceremony I like to get shots of the audience as well as the bride and groom.
After the wedding ceremony…
We were very lucky in that it was a lovely day. At the back of the venue there are some beautiful grounds. I always love this part of the wedding, lots of chances for some candids. In this case the kids in particular really obliged and were extra cute.
That’s all from me on this one! Andrew covered the rest of the day, as I was really only booked for the main part of the day on this occasion. It was a lovely venue, and the beautiful family. Hope I get to go back there for another wedding soon!
