Mapledurham Estate Wedding

Mapledurham Estate
Cayley & Matt

My first venture to the Mapledurham Estate was for Cayley and Matt’s wedding in August which also happened to fall on one of the sunniest days of the year. It wasn’t until the evening the we had any cloud cover. If you’d like to know what the most challenging conditions are to shoot in it’s super bright sunny days in wide open spaces!

I started with Cayley at the Great House in Sonning before heading off to meet Matt and everyone else at St. Peter’s Church in Caversham. From there we all went via boat to the Mapledurham Estate where there was a open sided marquee awaiting us just outside the main house.

The Mapledurham Estate is famous for the 1976 film ‘The Eagle Has Landed’ although I didn’t realise it until I caught the film one Sunday afternoon and it’s also been the set for the Midsomer Murders and more recently the TV series Taboo with Tom Hardy.

This was a lovely day in the sun for everyone in an idyllic location, the evening turned messy thanks to a free bar but I don’t think anyone minded 😀

Here’s some more images from their day:

Castle Durrow Wedding

Castle Durrow, Ireland
Anne & Nick

Here’s Anne and Nick’s September wedding at Castle Durrow in Ireland.

I love heading to the Emerald Isle for weddings, I love the local food, the Guinness and the friendliness of the locals. It’s like a calmer version of the UK!

Anne and Nick had their reception at the Castle, but their ceremony was at The Church of the Most Holy Rosary, Abbeyleix.

This was an Irish and Greek fusion wedding, so in the evening the dancefloor lit up and was crazy all the way through until 2am. I only just managed to keep up with everyone. From money being slapped on foreheads, to NIck being thrown into the air the party kept on going, large and loudright until the end.
