A Winter Marquee Wedding in Berkshire

Amy contacted me after she'd seen my photography from her friends wedding last year. Though I was already booked for her date the week before Christmas, after a cancellation and some hasty emails I was delighted to have Amy and Ned's wonderful winter marquee wedding to look forward to at Amy's parents house in Berkshire.

Christmas Wedding

Winter weddings are always a lot trickier to photograph than Summer ones - not just because of the obvious light differences, but the weather itself can throw a spanner in the works of the most detailed wedding plans. There is a lot fewer hours of good daylight to work with, and guests will spend almost the entire day indoors. With it being the week before Christmas, and the house in the depths of the Berkshire countryside, I was keeping one eye on whether it may snow in the lead up to the wedding day. But Britain's unpredictable weather didn't deliver any snow that week, so thoughts of a beautifully winter scene vanished.

Photography started in the morning with the groomsmen at one of the local pubs, before I arrived at Amy's parent's house for the brides preparation. It was a busy place that morning, with lots of family and friends around as well as the catering staff putting the last minute touches to the glorious marquee that had appeared in the field opposite the house. The canvas cover really did provide an elegant and cosy setting for the guests later in the day.

Candlelit recessional

After Amy was ready, I met Ned and the groomsmen again in the church and waited for the ceremony to begin. It was a late afternoon ceremony, so by the time we all came out again it was dusk, and the candles provided a really atmospheric exit for the bride and groom. 

The party really got going back at the marquee where even a temporary power cut couldn't dampen the spirits. After some hilarious and thoroughly entertaining speeches the guests settled into the wedding breakfast before Amy and Ned's first dance under the canvas.
