Chan & Nisha

Nisha and Chan chose the popular Reading Registry Office in the heart of Reading Berkshire for their marriage ceremony. This fairly low-key part of the day was followed by a lively party at a private house and then an evening party with lots more guests at a local restaurant.

Reading Register Office (as it is correctly known ..... why does everyone call it "registry office"!) is a busy wedding venue; on in-demand days such as our couples Saturday the ceremonies come thick and fast - every 30 minutes! Needless to say some earlier brides arrived late and the inevitable delays built up. The staff are quite used to this and kept us informed whilst our bride Nisha was hidden in a "holding pattern" in her vintage limousine out of sight of the guests and groom.

The Reading Registrars are easy for professional photographers and videographers to work with. There are no awkward rules and regulations during ceremonies. However everything does need to be kept simple because of the tight timeline to which the office works. There is not the scope to set up multiple video cameras for alternative views, and if things are running late the guests may be denied the opportunity to shoot their own photos of the couple with the marriage register.

The weather on the day was kind to us and we just had a sprinkling of rain after the ceremony and during the afternoon party, but it cleared sufficiently for us to complete the must-have group photos etc outside. Peter always carries powerful portable lighting so that everything can be shot inside if necessary, but usually the best portrait skin tones are achieved in even natural light outdoors.

Our couple booked a combined photography and video package which started with the latter stages of the girls getting ready and finished in the evening after the speeches cake cutting and dancing at the restaurant.

A quick shout-out for the Chinese restaurant which hosted the evening party. The food was divine - Kei's Peking Restaurant in Lower Earley Reading.

Peter started the day shooting scene-setting photos of the Registry Office before it was overrun with mingling guests from the multiple weddings that are a feature of most busy Saturdays. There is a small amount of parking at the front, to the left of the camera, and plenty more behind the main building. There is a shaded garden area just to the left of the camera position which is a good location for some group photos after the ceremony. Some couples avoid what can be a busy area and go to nearby Forbury Gardens for their photos.

Then it was on to the girls for some shots of the dress, shoes, flowers and all the other detail which looks so great at the start of a wedding album.
