Oakley Court Hotel Wedding Photography
Photographing weddings at Oakley Court Hotel
Oakley Court was built in 1859 by Sir Richard Hall-Say the High Sheriff of Berkshire, constructed in a Victorian Gothic style. The manor house boasts fabulous interiors and exteriors, as no expense was spared to built this amazing property. In its later life it was sold to Lord Otho Fitzgerald who entertained his famous friends at the house, and during his ownership he authorised a number of films to made within the grounds. These films included St. Trinians, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, and The Hound of The Baskervilles. The house also became the home and film set to the Hammer Films company, and thankfully the screams and sounds of horror movies has now been replaced with the echoes of joyful wedding celebrations.
The Oakley Court Hotel is a gorgeous, historic and a truly spectacular country house hotel, and it’s proximity to Windsor, Heathrow and London makes it especially popular for weddings. The house is a rural beauty located on the River Thames with its own 33 acres of tranquil and unspoilt grounds to explore. The hotel hosts civil ceremonies and wedding breakfasts in their contemporary Windsor Suite which holds up to 160 guests, or alternatively smaller ceremonies and receptions can be arranged in the main house.
An opulent waterside historic venue like The Oakley Court Hotel is hard to beat for the absolute wow factor, and I love attending weddings at this magical venue. I sometimes have to pinch myself when I’m working at this hotel as there are just so many incredibly beautiful backdrop options for my wedding photographs.
