Just wanted to say a huge thank you for you photographic services at our wedding - everyone has told me that they thought you were great and hardly noticed you there! And the photos look fantastic we are very happy with them.
Neil and Natalie
Thank you for putting the online galleries up. We are both really pleased with the results! We also both really appreciated the way you ran things on the day, both your mannerism whilst dealing with everybody and when organising the group photos, and the unobtrusive way you went around the reportage. Naomi mentioned that on some of the pictures in the house for instance she had no idea you were in the room! We will get back to you with a list of our favourites for the album. This may take a little time however with so many good photos to choose from!
Naomi and James
The pretty church of St John the Evangelist in Woodley is on the outskirts of Reading Berkshire. St Johns Church is roomy inside and there are no unusual restrictions on wedding photography or video during the marriage ceremony so its possible for professional photographers and videographers to obtain a good selection of images from various vantage points. However as with many churches the light is low and it is difficult to shoot from a position in front of the couple so specialist lenses and camera bodies are a great advantage.
There is another St John's in Woodley - the Catholic Church of St John Bosco, which you can browse in this gallery.
Browse lots more galleries in the same area via the main Galleries Page.
The first photo below shows the interior of St Johns Church looking towards the altar:
Peter's coverage started as usual with the girls getting ready nearby. Some shots of the dresses, shoes, flowers and suchlike look great at the start of your wedding album:
Peter usually shoots a few semi-posed photos of the groom moments before the start of the wedding ceremony - last few minutes as a free man!
Professional photography and video are allowed during wedding ceremonies at St Johns:
After their marriage ceremony at St Johns Church Woodley Naomi and James departed for their reception at the Compleat Angler Marlow, and Natalie and James chose the Hilton St Annes Manor Hotel in Wokingham.
