Andrew and Gemma’s Wedding in Chilton Foliat, Berkshire

Wedding in Chilton Foliat Hungerford Berkshire

It was a fabulous day for Andrew and Gemma’s wedding in Chilton Foliat, Hungerford.

Andrew and Gemma’s Wedding was in St Mary’s, Chilton Foliat, Berkshire, England. In UK churches flash photography is usually not allowed and as it was a dull wet day most of the interior church shots were taken at 6400ISO using available light. Chilton Foliat is just outside of the village of Hungerford, famed for its antiques. Andrew surprised his lovely bride Gemma by renting a beautiful Aston Martin as his wedding car for the day. The wedding breakfast reception was held on the family farm where they breed race horse for the Newbury races. It was a really special day, and ended with a fun time dancing with the band’s fun music. My good friend and long time shooting partner Lim Hock Seng joined me for this trip and did a beautiful job with his photos. We stayed in Hungerford, easy to reach as it is on the main rail line from London to Exeter, and as mentioned it has an excellent range of antiques. BTW it was COLD! You will notice how everyone is bundled up.

If there were one place in the world I would love to shoot regularly, it would have to be the UK. So, if you are from the UK and viewing this page, I would love to come and cover your wedding day! Drop me a line.
