The photos really are beautiful. We are all very happy with them. Thanks for everything!

The Grovefield House Hotel Burnham Buckinghamshire is a busy popular wedding venue located close to its well-known neighbour Slough, and easily accessible from the nearby M4 M40 and M25 motorways. There is plenty of free onsite parking and this is secure as entry and exit is controlled through tall electric gates.
To the exterior it has large varied gardens - seven acres no less - and there are lots of alternative backdrops for the must have posed photos with friends and families. Inside the hotel has a cosy bar and several function rooms available for weddings.
The registrars who conduct wedding ceremonies at the Grovefield House Hotel are from the nearby Beaconsfield office. They are easy to work with for professional photographers and videographers and so it is possible to shoot a full record of your ceremony in both photo and video formats.
The first photo below shows the view of the Grovefield House Hotel from its gardens:
The hotel is licensed for wedding ceremonies but you may have your ceremony at a nearby church and your reception at the hotel. Our bride in the next photo had her wedding at St Francis Church High Wycombe and then we made the short hop to the Grovefield House Hotel. Another popular local church is St Nicolas Church Taplow, another venue at which Peter has shot many times.
Our bride and groom exchange their vows during their wedding:

This particular ceremony was on New Years Eve and was lit only by candles!
Your coverage may start with the girls getting ready, and include close-up shots of the dresses, flowers, shoes, and all those little details that look so great at the start of your wedding album:
Peter usually shoots a few semi-posed portraits of the groom in his last few moments as a free man:
And here is that candlelit wedding ceremony underway. You must have realistic expectations when relying on candles because although stills and video cameras have advanced a long way in recent years they cannot see much in virtual darkness!
The registrars are easy going and so it is possible to shoot all the vital moments of the ceremony such as the exchange of rings:
There are lots of alternatives for photos around the hotel's large grounds:
If you are unlucky wit the weather the wedding photos can be completed inside - even the large groups:
In the previous and next photos you can see one of the function rooms prepared ready for the wedding breakfast. Quite a difference between a light and airy daytime and a dark and moody night-time vibe!
The speeches are a great opportunity for character shots:
A photo of the venue after dark can make a great closing page for your wedding album:
