JA JUNE 24-161.jpg

Great Fosters

It was such an honour to shoot at Great Fosters in Egham- the building and grounds are stunning and there is a photo opportunity in every corner, I could have taken 1000 more photos but I never want to spend more than 20 minutes taking couples photos because frankly I do not want to take you away from your wedding day for too long and it's not a photoshoot, it's your wedding! So we quickly took a walk around the grounds and got our snaps.

The bridge image I took also allowed all the guests to grab a photo from where I was standing too which I think was a nice 
touch. 

Where shall I start telling you about Great Fosters from my perspective as a photographer? Let's talk seasonal flowers, in May you'll have Wisteria on this bridge in the photo above, and in June the round-shaped garden is full of lavender by July I think all the climbing white jasmine will all be blooming. At this June Wedding I saw a heron and goslings by the lake and fish swimming in the pond. A true wildlife haven, peaceful and serene. 

The parking is plentiful and access was mostly easy and flat for those with mobility issues with a notable set of steps from the bar that can be circumnavigated via one of the other exits. 


 

Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry Office

This beautiful intimate wedding was held at the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry Office on St Ives Road in Maidenhead Town Center. It's a lovely quiet and clean location with a semi-private entrance to the registry office around the rear of the building. 

Parking for the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry Office on St Ives Road can be found in one of many very close public car parks, I parked in The Grove Road car park and it cost me £4ish to park for the length of the ceremony. This wedding was on a Monday and there were plenty of parking spaces left. 

The room at the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry office that the ceremony is held in is surprisingly light and well-lit with true white overhead lighting, the bride and groom face three large windows giving beautiful natural light so you can expect images taken in this space to be even and well-lit without a flash. 

The registrars based in the office on the day were some of the most accommodating I've worked with to date, the bride and groom also commented on how lovely the staff were. They were keen to ensure that all the important pictures had been taken and that I as a photographer was happy and helpful when asking about places to throw confetti outside the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry Office building. 

Registry office weddings can be fabulous for smaller weddings. In this case, Jackie & Alex went on to have a gorgeous reception at Great Fosters where they could have their formal pictures and couples shot amongst lush manicured luxury but equally, there were plenty of lovely spaces around the Royal Borough of Maidenhead and Windsor Registry Office that would have been perfect for couples photos.
