Relaxed, Creative Wedding Photos In Berkshire You’re Sure To Treasure
I know that the best shots of any wedding day are those in which the couple and their guests are happy and relaxed in the frame. My personable nature allows me to subtly move in and snap away at the decisive moments, and then blend right back away into the background without disturbing the fun and excitement. By doing so, I’ll not only ensure that you have flattering images of all the special people sharing your day; but that they won’t be forced, awkward poses that don’t capture you and your guests at your best.
Photography to me, is about movement, love, joy, fleeting moments and sharing memories. Great pictures encapsulate the beauty that flashes in a second, often easily missed at a busy celebration. At your wedding in Berkshire I’ll capture the fun and laughter of the speeches, those quiet and tender moments with your family, the colour, the vibrancy and the beauty of everything that makes your day unique. My style brings life to still images, capturing meaningful glances, smiles and the intimacy of the day in an artful record. You’ll enjoy remembering these important snippets for years to come.

Of course, you don’t have to take my word the standard of images I’ll deliver! Many of my past clients have written fantastic reviews which I’m proud to showcase on my testimonials page. Amongst my favourite comments are those that highlight the fact that I don’t intrude on the day itself, that I produce photographs that are natural and stunning and, perhaps most importantly, that expose the love, happiness and joy.

Being your Berkshire photographer is something I will truly enjoy; to me, capturing a the bride and groom’s big moments is an honour, never just a job. This is why, not only do I pride myself in continually developing my art and my business, but I also invest heavily in the equipment I use to ensure I never feel restricted when I’m working.
I’ll always be thinking ahead, scanning around for the next picture and listening to words spoken at the wedding so that I be your eye and ears. As an experienced professional, I carry back-up equipment to wherever I’m working in Berkshire. Having spare lenses, camera bodies and flashguns is absolutely vital so you can rest assured your pictures are in safe hands. After all, for every pictures that’s not captured in camera, that’s a memory that could be lost forever.
Charlotte and Tom at Bradfield College in Berkshire
Since being named as one of the UK’s best wedding photographers in 2016 and 2017, I’ve captured some stunning photographs at weddings held across Berkshire, including Charlotte and Tom’s beautiful ceremony at the gorgeous Bradfield College.
Full of laughter and affection, this charming wedding day was amazing to document. Their refined style and personal touches made shooting their wedding a real treat, and Charlotte and Tom had great personalities that made for great compositions. Those little moments amongst family and friends, Charlotte’s snowy gown and the crisp December winter light make this a wonderfully romantic collage of events in their picture album. The couple were even kind enough to leave me a review for my services…
“Murray was fantastic from the moment he turned up. He was unobtrusive and he took some simply beautiful photos. We asked for more reportage and he captured the day perfectly – so much joy and laughter.” – Charlotte & Tom

Why I love to photograph Berkshire
Berkshire has an ambundance of bustling towns, quaint villages and picturesque countryside to explore. This county is renowned as romantic setting with strong connections to the Royal Family. As the birthplace for the Duchess of Cambridge and Kate Middleton, I’ve visited Windsor Castle many times with my family, stopping off for a picnic lunch alongside the River Thames to take in the scenic landscapes of Pangbourne. I’ve also photographed a few engagement shoots around Reading and Maidenhead where there’s some beautiful panoramic views of the rural scenery. It’s easy to see why the stunning county of Berkshire is home to countless exclusive wedding venues, attracting bride and grooms from afar to celebrate their special day.
