The Mill House Hotel Swallowfield has been a popular wedding venue for very many years and Peter has worked there lots of times as well as attending as a wedding guest.

The hotel is in a rural location just a few miles south of Reading Berkshire and is easily reached from the nearby M4 and M3 motorways. There is lots of free onsite car parking available for guests. On wedding days the front of the hotel is kept clear of vehicles so that everyone can appreciate this charming vista.

There are two rooms licensed for wedding ceremonies. The smaller Cottage Suite can take around 60 guests and the larger Garden Room around 120. The Garden Room has a particularly nice outlook onto the gardens and has plenty of natural light streaming through the large windows.

The gardens to the rear of the Mill House Hotel and large and varied. They are well maintained and have lots of alternative spots suitable for all the essential posed group photos etc. It is also possible to leave the gardens via a side gate and shoot some extra photos with fields as a backdrop.

The registrars responsible for wedding ceremonies at the Mill House Hotel allow a good range of professional photography and video activity, and so it is possible to have a comprehensive photo and video record of your marriage ceremony.

In the Summer a permanent marquee is erected at the far end of the gardens and this is where the wedding breakfast and evening dancing normally take place.

The first photo below shows the familiar sign as you approach this handsome Georgian hotel:
