The Taplow House Hotel is located in the village of Taplow Buckinghamshire, in the far south of the county on the Berkshire border and very close to Maidenhead.

It is easily accessible from the M4 M40 and M25 motorways and has plenty of free on-site car parking protected with security gates.

This lovely Georgian house is a busy and popular wedding venue. It has an extensive south-facing raised terrace - as you can see in the first photo below - which is a terrific sun-trap and a real pleasure to relax on with a cool drink whilst catching up on the news with old friends and family. The grounds to the hotel are large and there are shaded areas to escape to if the sun really is too harsh for the best quality portrait photos.

The registrars responsible for wedding ceremonies at the Taplow House Hotel are an easy-going bunch and so there should be no barriers to professional photographers and videographers shooting a complete record of your marriage ceremony.

The first photo shows the very distinctive south facing terrace and gardens at this lovely wedding venue. The mature trees are a godsend for professional photographers hunting for shaded areas for the portrait photos on bright days:

The Taplow House Hotel is of course licensed for civil wedding ceremonies but many couples choose to have their actual wedding a few hundred yards away in St Nicolas Church Taplow. Again the clergy at St Nicolas Church are easy to work with for professional photographers and videographers and Peter has videod several full length ceremonies in the church. The next photo shows our bride and groom shortly after their wedding ceremony flanked by a full military guard of honour:

This couple also had their wedding ceremony in the nearby church. The Taplow House Hotel is just about within walking distance of the church:

Weddings with a Nigerian connection are always a colourful affair and real treat for professional photographers:

Other local churches are also popular choices. The couple in the next photo chose St John the Baptist Church Cookham Dean for their wedding ceremony:

Anyway, back to the Taplow House Hotel! Wedding limousines can drive around the hotel's own mini-one-way system and pull up right in front of the south facing main building for a terrific set piece wedding photo of the bride and groom with their posh car!

At the start of the wedding day Peter's coverage usually commences with the girls getting ready and includes some detail photos of the dress, flowers, shoes etc which look so great in your wedding photo album:

Posh shoes absolutely must be recorded. Jimmy Choo no less!

And the flowergirls hairbands look terrific:

If your tastes include some quite traditional photos then Peter will of course shoot these for you. For example our bride in all her glory dressed and ready for her wedding ceremony in the next photo:

The bride and groom mingle as everyone soaks up the gorgeous sunshine:

The cocktail hour - which is the period between the end of the wedding ceremony and the start of the wedding breakfast - can be a great opportunity to capture candid photos of the guests relaxing and catching up with each others news:

Its also a good opportunity to shoot a few individual portraits - especially if the guests have gone to a lot of trouble and expense for their appearance:

Kids will be kids of course and they always seem to love playing in the grounds of big country house hotels like the Taplow House Hotel:

Peter often makes a photo shot list in consultation with the bride and groom to ensure that these must-have photos can be completed as quickly as possible. A staple of the list is of course the bride and groom with the parents:
