Nicolle & Stephen’s wedding photography at Phyllis Court Club in Henley-On-Thames. Nicolle & Stephen got ready at their respective family homes in Berkshire, before heading to St Nicholas Church in Remenham for the ceremony. Before that, my assistant Ashley got a couple of shots of the groomsmen getting ready and having a pre-wedding pint at the local pub in Henley. You can view the preview shots of this wedding on the blog here.
The ceremony had a small sprinkling of rain when the bride, Nicolle arrived at the church in Remenham. These umbrellas came in handy whilst walking through the church grounds ready to walk down the aisle. St Nicholas Church is a beautiful, quaint church in a hamlet just on the edge of the River Thames.
At the rear of the church, we shot a couple of bride and groom portraits by the gate next to a country lane whilst the groomsmen set up the confetti line along the church path. We took a couple of photographs here, did the confetti and then headed down to the River Thames just down the path from the church.
I love the landscape here, the wide river allows us to see the surrounding hills of Oxfordshire and Temple Island, which can be seen in the background of these shots along the river. The footpath along the river worked well for reportage style wedding photography, and then Nicolle & Stephen got a small boat along the Thames to Phyllis Court Club.
Wedding Photography at Phyllis Court Club, Henley on Thames
Henley on Thames is a stunning town in the Oxfordshire countryside, and Phyllis Court Club offers a great view of the town for the background of this wedding photograph. A small footbridge over an inlet river on the property was a great place for photographs, especially later on in the evening!
After the speeches, cake cutting and first dance, we went back to the footbridge at twilight to get a couple of photographs using some off-camera flash. A bit of light rain was falling, but not noticeable unless it was lit with the strobes. This created an enchanted atmosphere to tases photographs, particularly the reflection over the water on the footbridge on the River Thames.
