Jodies & Chris’ Stunning Luxury Wedding at Wasing Park
We met Jodie and Chris thanks to the recommendation of one of our previous clients – and we were super excited to work with this beautiful young couple on their dream day! We found out during the timeline consultation and venue walk-around that Chris (originally from South Africa) had planned the perfect romantic wedding proposal in Kruger Park in South Africa. Kruger Park boasts stunning sweeping landscapes, and Wasing Park was the perfect choice to accompany such engagement scenery with its own stunning landscape scenery of Berkshire.
The weather was typically English in August, with lots of sunny hot spells indispersed with cloudy spells. Although this can be very challenging for us as Wedding Photographers, it’s also extremely exciting as this makes for beautiful stunning wedding photography with a nice variety for the wedding album and canvases to adorn our clients walls – dramatic cloudy skies are a wonder to behold!
The day was relaxed and the guests were super friendly – it was a joy and an honour to capture Jodie & Chris’ big day – please see below for a selection of our favourites from their special wedding day together…
