As Elite Wedding Venues go, there are few as impressive as the Oakley Court Hotel. With breathtaking views of the Thames, as well as historic Victorian gothic architecture of the main mansion, there are plenty of wedding photography opportunities at this wonderful venue. Kira & Murray had a wonderful sunny day in August for their wedding, and we’re proud to show you our favourites from their magical day…

The Picturesque riverside location with its own private jetty offers fantastic wedding photography opportunities, as does the Victorian gothic-style mansion in which you can host your civil-ceremonies.
The stunning grounds of this venue offer a wealth of wedding photo opportunities, from the crazy and modern sculptures (changing often) to the classic timeless beauty of the main mansion of Oakley Court Hotel, you will need an experienced wedding photographer to help you take advantage of it all! The outside grounds boast fountains, deck-chairs, fully stocked bar and restaurant, as well as stunning views across the Thames as it meanders past this idyllic wedding venue.
Whether it’s a small intimate ceremony, or a lavish fiesta you are looking for, with capacity for less than 30 guests to over 400 guests, this elite wedding venue can cater for your needs. There is also plenty of on-site accommodation, as well as luxury heated swimming pool and spa for the day after the wedding party.
Kira & Murray’s Sunny Wedding at Berkshire Wedding Venue – Oakley Court
Kira & Murray contacted us after being let down by another wedding photographer. Unfortunately the story is not too uncommon, and whether the reason was that they were just unprofessional or perhaps they were a professional wedding photography studio that got a better offer, we were happy to come to the rescue for this lovely young couple. With so much to organise, and having been let down by their previous photographer, understandably Kira was hesitant and wanted to plan everything carefully with us. After the timeline consultation and venue walk around all their fears were allayed, and Kira & Murray could relax
The day started with the boys outside, having the usual fun and confusion of trying to put their pocket flowers on! With the sun out, it was sunglasses time as the (record?) 12 groomsmen got their pre-wedding game on with a few beers and few laughs. Looking down on them from the window below, Bride and bridesmaids were getting ready upstairs in the bridal suite. Nerves were high, but a few proseccos as well as a visit from the father of the bride saved the day!
It was super hot all day, and Kira was most excited about the sunset photos after the wedding breakfast, with the sun setting over this fantastic Berkshire Wedding Venue, leaving blue skies and sky trails for their canvas image of the day! Bouquet toss and confetti on the dance floor was the order for the evening, and celebrations continued long into the warm summer night. It was truly an honour to document Kira & Murray’s special day, and we wish them all the best as they start their new adventure together…
