In July 2013, on a fabulous summers day, I photographed the wedding of Danny and Katherine at Kidmore End Church, and then the Red Lion, In Henley. The church is one of the most picturesque churches I have photographed, with lovely light and fabulous grounds. The Red Lion is a beautiful hotel that was originally a coaching inn. It is on the road between London and Oxford, and has been offering hospitality for over 600 years. It is situated at the foot of the Henley Bridge and offers spectacular views of the Henley Royal Regatta Course.
Danny and Katherine tied the knot with a beautiful ceremony, and afterwards we gathered the wedding guests outside for some formal group shots. As soon as the group photographs were done and dusted, the wedding guests made their way to the hotel, and had some drinks at the bar until it was time for the wedding breakfast. Myself and the bride and groom took the opportunity to go to for a stroll around Henley for some amazing formal shots.
Wew used the river Thames and Henley Bridge as locations. The stretch of river between the regatta finish and Henley Bridge is the location for the annual Henley Festival of Music and Arts. Now a popular hospitality venue, it attracts some of the world’s top entertainers to perform on a floating stage in front of a dinner-jacketed audience; as well as holding exhibitions of art and sculpture.
After our excursion to the river, the guests returned for a wedding Breakfast inside the hotel before partying long into the night. A great day was had by all!
As a Bridgend Wedding Photographer, it is great to have the scope to move around Wales shooting different locations and meeting the lovely people I encounter on their big day! Danny and Katherine were great on their day, and made the day a smooth one by just being themselves – happy, relaxed and in love!
