A few weeks back I was invited to photograph Bill and Lisa’s wedding in Silchester House in Berkshire. Silchester house is run by Bijou Weddings – I have shot quite a few weddings in one of their other venues – Botleys Mansion, which is superb, so I was expecting rather a lot from Silchester House. It didn’t disappoint – the house, and especially the grounds, are beautiful and suited very well for some great portrait shots with the couple.
This wedding was quite unusual for a number of reasons, it was also planned and put together by Lisa and Bill in just a few months time, which, I must say, didn’t show at all, as everything was organised impeccably.. It was also one of the latest bookings for me ever, the booking was made just over a week before the wedding and we only sorted out the last details the evening before the big day..
Lisa’s side of the family are Chinese and, ohh man, they like taking photos.. I am used to that in Chinese weddings, but this was something else.. There were cameras everywhere.. during group shots I found more photographers around myself then there were people in the groups.. :) Overall it was a very fun day and the weather also treated us well, which was a pleasant surprise in this very British summer (which is basically a synonym for “rubbish weather”)..
Enjoy the photos!
