Windsor Guildhall Wedding Ana and Peter
Ana and Peter celebrated their wedding day at Castle Hotel for getting ready fun and then were married next door at the Windsor Guildhall. The Guildhall is the most historical register office that I know. Built in 1689, on 9 April 2005, it was the scene of the wedding of Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles and on 21 December 2005, it hosted one of the first same sex civil partnership ceremonies to be held in England, that of Sir Elton John and David Furnish. It is the most regal room with stunning royal paintings, artwork and artefacts; it really is a beautiful space to be married.
It was a real family focussed day with the couples 2 children being centre stage to the wedding, they were such good babies. Ana and Peter had their friends and family surrounding them on the day and a few of them joined us at The Two Brewers, a beautiful traditional English pub with vibrant colourful flowers in planters outside the front; perfect for photographs!
The couple wanted to have fresh, natural and authentic imagery of them together with their VIP’s, so we opted for the Long Walk (after gaining permissions from the estate.) We had a lovely time together and added the little ones in before they got too tired! It can be stressful with little ones at weddings when they are so little. Having your family around you to help with littles is brilliant and their 2 beautiful children were well looked after when we were photographing the portraits. The children were getting a little tired, but we made sure that we added in some fun ones – under 2’s don’t always want to look at the camera! There were tickles and laughter and shrieks; my favourite moment to capture. I heard from Ana after the wedding and she said “I’m so happy that we photographed the kids at that time as we will treasure those photographs forever”.
I left the couple back at the Castle Hotel for them to enjoy a family meal together. This was such a wonderful day and it was a pleasure to witness Ana and Peter commit their vows to each other.
