  • Ashton Lamont offers an affordable professional wedding photography and video service by Berkshire based Peter Riding. Peter personally shoots every wedding.


  • Peter is based near Reading Berkshire. This is a terrific location from which to reach the South of England, as far south-east as Kent, south west as Dorset, west as Avon and Gloucestershire, north as Northamptonshire, and east as Essex (venues further afield on request).


  • The region is blessed with having what is probably the densest concentration of gorgeous wedding venues anywhere. Just take a look at Peter's Galleries Page from which you can search and browse over a hundred featured venues.


  • Many couples book Peter to shoot all day, typically starting with the girls getting ready and finishing shortly after the first dance. A much shorter duration is readily available including "simple" registry office only photography. You'll find some suggested packages on the Prices Page; all of these can be varied to suit you e.g. change the amount of time you require nearer your wedding date, add an album after your wedding.


  • Choose an informal relaxed style of coverage with the emphasis on storytelling or "reportage" and with a minimum amount of time spent posing for photos. Or if you prefer a more classical approach with lots of elegant finely posed groups - maybe you have friends and relations attending from distant lands who you seldom see - thats absolutely fine. Peter does not impose a style on you.


  • Photography Service can be "stand-alone" or include some video.


  • Video Service can be "stand-alone" or include some photography.


  • Superb professional photographic equipment is used including the Canon 5DS-R and the Canon 5D Mark IV for the best possible results. Portable off-camera lighting is available in case of poor weather or very low indoor lighting.


  • Every kind of wedding and celebration is very welcome: the riots of colour at Nigerian Hindu Chinese Muslim and Sikh ceremonies, elegant English roses, humanist exuberant gay weddings - bring it on!.


  • Peter also shoots lots of christenings, parties, anniversaries, and other events, and these can be photographed or video'd or both. Please contact for individual quotation.



The photos on this page feature just a few of the many hundreds of brides Peter has shot over 15 years as a full-time professional photographer. Browse lots more via the Galleries Page.
