Background Information and Highlights:

Just to say the photos are wonderful. We're thrilled with them. As one guest said, 'They really caught the happiness of the day.'

Helen and Steve

Our bride and groom chose the Elephant Hotel in the village of Pangbourne just north of Reading Berkshire for their marriage ceremony and wedding reception.

The Elephant Hotel is "Indian Empire" themed in its decor and furnishings, reflecting its 19th century history and this gives it a real one-off quirky vibe - great for weddings! Parking at the venue itself is very limited but there is a large public open air car park right next door. The private enclosed gardens at the rear are sheltered by mature trees - making it good for the group photos - and on one side is the lovely old St James the Less church.

The registrars responsible for marriage ceremonies at the Elephant Hotel Pangbourne are from the nearby Newbury Register Office and as usual there were no onerous restrictions on professional photography and video.

The weather on the day was warm and bright with just enough cloud cover to provide ideal conditions for shooting the group photos and portraits - phew! Many thanks to our rounder-uppers who helped find the participants for the very many groups; we must have broken a few records getting through the list extremely quickly.
