Our featured couples chose Stirrups Country House Hotel near Bracknell Berkshire for their marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions.

Stirrups Hotel is a modern spacious wedding venue with attractive rooms, extensive well maintained grounds, and plenty of free parking. Crucially for weddings out of the high season when adverse weather can be a big problem, Stirrups has a large patio area which includes several huge brollies for shelter complete with open air heaters. Peter often makes good use of these when completing the family and group photos if the weather is windy or showery.

The registrars have no silly rules regarding professional photography and video during ceremonies so it is possible to shoot a good selection of photos and video for this all important part of the day.

The dray cart is a nice photo prop especially as the flower border around it is always maintained very nicely. You can use it as a backdrop in even the wettest of weather as there is hard ground just a few yards to the left of the camera position:

The grounds can look a little bare in the low season - no way around that obviously - but there is a large terrace opening from two of the function rooms which is a great location for photos of groups as it is dry underfoot and is readily accessible. You can see the terrace in the next photo below:
