Helen Grant Wedding Forbury Hotel Reading
Helen and Grant's Wedding took place at The Forbury Hotel in Reading, Berkshire. It's the perfect location for a small family and friends wedding. The Forbury Hotel is one of my local wedding photography locations. Certainly gives me the advantage of knowing all the secret spots for portraits.
The morning started covering the bride preparations, just the bride and one bridesmaid. It was a very calm and relaxing morning for both of them. Grant was already relaxing at the local pub taking in a pint or two.

It was time for the ceremony and Helen was escorted in by her father. Grant was eagerly awaiting to see his stunning bride as she made her way to him. The ceremony was beautiful with laughter and smile's all the way through. After the wedding ceremony, all the guests managed to have a drink and catch up before all heading outside for the group shots. The group shots were all covered in record time.
We, Helen and Grant headed off around the back of The Forbury Hotel to cover their portraits. In total, we picked three locations all with different looks. I love taking portraits of the couples and how different i can make each wedding look at the same locations.
The Forbury Hotel Wedding Reception
Returning to the Hotel and leaving the couple mingling with the guests, I headed to cover the details. The wedding breakfast was almost ready, and the room was looking stunning. All the guests started to fill the room and Helen, and Grant made their grand entrance. It's hard to explain about the speeches, but all I can say is no one could stop Laughing all the way through.
Before long the evening, guests started trickling in, and everyone was moved down to the disco area. As everyone was walking past I grabbed the wedding party and set up a shot in the cinema room. The photo I did was magical and so fun to cover, Grant you a superstar!.
The evening, officially started and the cutting of the cake covered we all headed to the dance floor for the first dance. The couple looked fabulous, and before the song could finish, everyone was joining in.
Big thanks to everyone for your help and hospitality on the day. Helen and Grant congratulations and I wish you all the best for years to come.
