It was a lovely day for the wedding of Gemma and Jack at Wasing Park. Wasing Park is a barn wedding venue in Berkshire, between Newbury and Reading. It is a fairly local venue to me and I have worked there on a few occasions. Wasing Park offers a lot of options for any wedding, all packed in a small area. There is on-site accommodation for guests, a church, the Barn, the Garden room and also an area for outdoor ceremonies. This is perhaps why Wasing Park seems to be a very popular venue with brides and grooms!
I arrived on time to capture some images of the bride getting ready, while the lovely Simon Atkins came to help me and capture a few shots of the groom getting ready. The morning was very relaxed with everyone in good spirits. I had a chat with with Gemma and Jack a few days prior and they were so relaxed and friendly. I knew that it was going to be a fab wedding and it was! The ceremony took place at the Church within Wasing Park’s grounds. It is a small and quaint church but warm and beautiful! Perfect for a nice wedding day surrounded by friends and family. After the ceremony, wed did a few formal family photos by the church before going to the garden room for drinks and canapés. A bit later on we went around the grounds at Wasing for a few portraits of the bride and groom.
The rest of the day was mainly spent at the barn. The Barn at Wasing Park is fairly spacious and Gemma and Jack had done a great job in decorating with some nice drop down light bulbs from the ceiling. There were some delightful table decorations made by Gemma’s mum too! The afternoon/evening went smoothly with some lovely food followed by speeches. The speeches were fun, meaningful, light hearted and not too long, a perfect combination! After a break for coffee and cutting the cake, everybody joined the bride and groom for their first dance and some dancing. I left shortly after the first dance.
It was a very nice day at Wasing and Gemma and Jack were great to work with. A fun and caring couple who made me feel very welcome and were a joy to work with. Below are a few of my favourite images from their wedding day! I hope that you really enjoy them and I would love to hear your comments from you below! If you found this post when looking for Wasing Park wedding photography or for any other venue for that matter, I would love to hear from you! Again, a big thank you to Simon Atkins for his help on the day and producing some beautiful images, some of which made this blog!
