Wokefield Park Mortimer near Reading in Berkshire is a wedding venue with which Peter is very familiar having worked there many times over several years shooting weddings corporate events and parties - and it is within walking distance of his Burghfield Common base!

It is part of the De Vere group of venues which in this area also includes Warbrook House, Highfield Park, and Hartsfield Manor.

Wokefield Park is easy to travel to being a very short hop from junction 11 of the M4 and just a few miles north of the M3. It has plenty of free onsite car parking.

Weddings take place in the Mansion House and there are three rooms licensed for ceremonies including high numbers in the Maple Restaurant. It is also possible to have a marquee in the grounds. The Newbury registrars are responsible for the legal side. Most of the Newbury staff are easy going and present no "problem" for professional photographers and videographers; a couple are rather more old-fashioned and restrictive and you may wish to have a word with the register office staff about the coverage you wish to achieve before the day.

Outside Wokefield Park enjoys large grounds and lawns plus a big lake surrounded by mature trees. The rear of the building has a light Mediterranean feel to it with its raised terraces. In very bright sunshine shaded areas suitable for the best quality portrait photography are in short supply but its worthwhile hunting these out. The flower beds would benefit from a greater volume and variety of plants and shrubs but that is the case at most corporate rather than privately owned wedding venues.

The first photo below shows the instantly recognisable rear of Wokefield Park. A wide gravel walkway extends the length of the building - great news for the ladies in heels if the weather is too damp to use the lawns! The steps on the far left of the photo are a good location to shoot small groups as the participants can be staggered on the steps to ensure everyone is visible.
