The delightful Newbury Manor Hotel Newbury Berkshire is situated on the M4 corridor just a few miles from the intersection with the A34 so is well positioned for guests travelling from the South of England and the Midlands. There is plenty of free onsite parking at the rear of the hotel.
The Newbury Manor Hotel has varied and extensive well maintained grounds so its great for wedding photography and video.
The Newbury registrars are much more relaxed about professional photography and video during the ceremony than was once the case and its usually possible to shoot a complete set of images and video throughout the marriage ceremony.
The Newbury Manor Hotel has two big lawned areas, one to the front of the Hotel and another alongside the river. The Riverbar Restaurant, which is a restored grade two listed watermill, is adjacent to the river as the name implies!. There is a third outside area sometimes used for events which is located underneath the trees behind the restaurant.
Perhaps the most recognisable feature of the Newbury Manor Hotel is displayed in the first photo below. The pretty Georgian frontage and main entrance - complete with bride and groom in this photo!
The front of the hotel is also an ideal place to shoot a few setpiece wedding photos with your swish vintage car or limousine:
Coverage often starts with the girls getting ready and includes detail shots of the flowers, dresses, shoes and suchlike - everything that looks so great at the beginning of your wedding album:
Not forgetting the fellas of course!
Good weather cannot be guaranteed - but this was a December wedding!
The hotel is licensed for civil wedding ceremonies but you may wish to get married in a local church instead. This couple chose St Matthews Church Midgham and in the next photo we see them making a rather unconventional departure from the church:
The nine acres of water meadows at the Newbury Manor Hotel give an infinite variety of backdrops for your wedding photos:
The various water features at the Newbury Manor Hotel are of course must-haves in the wedding photos:
If the weather stops us getting outside Peter always carries extensive lighting kit enabling all the various group photos to be shot inside:
The speeches are always a great photo and video opportunity:
This is why you need video as well as photos at your wedding!
Can you spot the bouquet which the bride has tossed in the next photo?
A photo of your wedding venue after dark can make a nice closing page to your wedding album:
