We just wanted to thank you for all you did with the photography and videography for our wedding day. The album and video are absolutely stunning and will always be a wonderful reminder of our special day. We will not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends. Thank you once again for all your help.
Parm and Mark
Parminder and Mark chose an all day combined photography and video package starting shortly before our bride's arrival at Rivervale Barn for the marriage ceremony, and finishing once the evening dancing was well underway.
Rivervale Barn is a relatively new wedding venue and it has rapidly become one of the most in-demand in the region. Its a very attractive venue both inside and throughout the grounds, managing to combine top quality modern materials and techniques with a kind of olde worlde charm.
It is located in Yateley on the Hampshire Berkshire border and is easily reached from the nearby M3 M4 and M25 motorways. There is free secure onsite parking.
The staff from nearby Aldershot Register Office are responsible for wedding ceremonies at Rivervale Barn. They can always be relied upon for a very pleasant and informal ceremony. They are also very kind to professional photographers and videographers so no silly rules restricting coverage whilst the ceremony is in progress.

Lets have a look around this gorgeous venue. The first photo below is that which greets you as you approach the main building. An iconic image of Rivervale Barn which is an absolute must-have.
The buildings have at their centre a courtyard. This is great for those days when the weather is misbehaving as it provides some shelter from wind plus it is easy for guests to duck into and out of for the essential group photos if rain is trying to spoil the fun. The balcony at the far end is a great vantage point from which to shoot big groups of guests, ensuring that everyone can be seen:
The mature gardens to the rear comprise mature trees and shrubs, landscaped to a very high standard with water features. The gardens are open in the "cocktail hour" - after the ceremony and before the wedding breakfast - for photos. They are closed at other times. On the day we were not able to make full use of the gardens as it was pretty wet underfoot for this Autumn wedding:
The main barn in which ceremonies take place is light and spacious:
The second barn in which the wedding breakfast takes place is also spacious if not quite so light:
Our bride got ready off-site (some couples use the lovely cottage at Rivervale Barn) and the coverage started just before her arrival:
Peter always converts some of the colour images to black and white. You can see more in the complete gallery.
The Aldershot registrars are absolutely brilliant and there is no problem shooting lots of photos and video during the ceremony:
We made limited use of the gardens, confining ourselves to the areas with hard standing as it was far too wet for the ladies in their heels to venture further:
Shooting the wedding breakfast at Rivervale Barn is actually quite demanding as the room is quite dark and the ceiling is far to high to use as a flash-bounce surface, but there are some lovely character photos to be had:
Some after dark photos of the venue always look great at the end of your wedding album:
