The wedding of Mary and Barry took place on a Saturday in April. It was a lovely and sunny day. Just a tad of rain in the evening. The bride and groom travelled from Australia for their special day. I knew after talking to them that they were keen on a relaxed wedding. I was looking forward to being the Shaw House wedding photographer too. It was my first time at Shaw House, a lovely registry in Newbury. The day started at the groom’s parents house were the bride was getting ready with her family. It was a very friendly atmosphere, with everyone in great spirits and with no signs of stress at all. We then made our way to Shaw House were the groom was welcoming the guests. All worked like clock work and it was a fairly intimate wedding with around 40 guests or so.
After the ceremony and a traditional confetti run, guests were invited to the grooms parents house for drinks and nibbles. It was a simple yet beautiful gathering of family and close family friends. A couple of hours later it was then time to hop onto a Route Master to go to Windsor, to the Greene Oak for the evening reception and meal.
The Green Oak is a lovely pub based in the outskirts of Windsor. It is friendly, warm and a perfect backdrop for the wedding of Mary and Barry. I love photographing weddings and the variety that they provide. I like to see how each couple chooses their wedding venue based on their style and how they envisage their wedding day. There a little bit of rain in the evening but not enough to disrupt the proceedings. Guests enjoyed using the photobooth, drinking champagne on arrival and canapés. It was then time for a lovely meal before the evening dancing. The bride and groom did not want long speeches so only a few words were said just before the first dance.
I really enjoyed meeting Mary and Barry and their families. They are a lovely, warm and fun couple and they were a pleasure to work with. Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding day, I really hope that you like them and I would love to read your comments below. If you are looking for a Shaw House wedding photographer (or any other venue for that matter) I would love to hear from you! Thanks for visiting and for reading!
