Top Ten Berkshire Wedding Venues
I’m a documentary wedding photographer who lives near Berkshire and so naturally I capture a lot of weddings in the county. Unsurprisingly I often get asked by couples about the best wedding venues in Berkshire to get married at so I pulled together my list of the top ten Berkshire wedding venues.
Although I have written this primarily based on the aesthetics and impact the venues have on your wedding photography, I’d like to think that I also have a good feel for the quality of the wedding teams at the venue, the atmosphere and intimacy the venues lend to your day and experience your guests have.
My Top Ten Berkshire Wedding Venues
Choosing the perfect venue for your wedding is one of the most significant tasks to do as soon as you get over the magical feeling of being engaged to the person of your dreams. Most wedding venues get booked long in advance – so this might be a task you want to get done with as soon as possible.
There are certainly some fabulous venues to choose from in Berkshire with the county being blessed with rolling parkland, vistas, country houses, hotels and mansions, and as Berkshire wedding photographer I feel blessed to have them on my doorstep. My list of top ten Berkshire wedding venues is hopefully a useful tool to help you choose your venue.
Berkshire Wedding Photography Testimonial
An exceptional example of a great wedding photographer
If we were to describe Damion with three words it would be: personable, diligent and talented.
Right from the initial video call all the way through the process was a sheer delight. It didn’t take us long to find Damion’s work online and his portfolio said it all. At that point, we decided that Damion was going to be our wedding photographer.
He has a very reassuring and friendly personality which immediately put us at ease and one less thing to worry about on our big day. The engagement shoot was fantastic as it built our relationship with him and gave us a greater understanding of what we could expect on the big day.
On the big day he was very discreet, organised and planned the day out perfectly.
We received the photos when we were on our Honeymoon (which was perfectly timed). We loved the documentary style. Damion managed to capture every detail of the day, and all emotional moments.
The Queensberry album was stunning. It was difficult to narrow them down as they were all so beautiful.
We would like to thank Damion for all his hard work and being an exceptional example of a great wedding photographer.
