Thank you very very much. We are trying to take it all in. The photos are amazing, we are trying to chose the best ones but there are too many :-)
The sumptuous Forbury Hotel Reading Berkshire is a terrific choice for civil weddings and receptions.
The hotel is located in the centre of Reading and so is an easy venue to reach from far and wide being a stones throw from the M4 motorway, a walk from the mainline railway station and a few short miles from London. Parking can be tricky but the hotel does have a few of its own parking spaces to the rear; your car can be valet parked.
Forbury Gardens is a very well maintained municipal park directly opposite the hotel. The gardeners work hard to keep it looking great and it is an excellent location for group photos. Permits for professional wedding photography are not required. The nearby ruins of Reading Abbey are another good photo location; ongoing restoration work may limit access though. The hotel has a small covered patio area to the rear which can be utilised if the weather just won't play fair..
The interior of the Forbury Hotel is designer heaven and offers numerous photogenic backdrops.
The registrars responsible for wedding and civil partnership ceremonies at the Forbury Hotel are from the nearby Reading Register Office and as always they were a pleasure to work with. Peter was able to shoot a full record of our couples ceremony in both stills and video.
