Just wanted to say that we really do love all of the photos and thanks again for all your hard work on the day!
Kirsty and Tom
Kirsty and Tom chose the lovely old Library at Savill Court Englefield Green Egham Surrey for their marriage ceremony and wedding reception.
The Macdonald Savill Court Hotel is just a short distance from Windsor and from the M25, M4 and M3 motorways and so it very well placed for weddings where guests travel from all over the South of England and beyond. It has several function rooms ranging from the intimate Library to the enormous Great Hall. The availability of natural daylight was always going to be an issue for Kirsty and Toms' winter wedding particularly as the ceremony was scheduled for 4pm. Fortunately the Hotel permitted us to use the Orangery for the formal photos and that worked well.
The registrars that work with Savill Court are good with professional photographers and so a good selection of images can be shot during ceremonies. Kirsty had chosen a candlelit theme and so shooting was very challenging because of the low light - flashgun use needs to be avoided where ever possible because it can be a distraction during the ceremony. I found my ISO going as high as 12800 - which professional photographers will know is very high indeed and was not even available until recently. I even went as high as ISO 25600 for the dancing later in the evening, remarkable how the technology has advanced!
The Savill Court Hotel has extensive grounds and these are very good for photography earlier in the day and earlier in the year. You can view a few scene setting shots of the exterior in the gallery.
