Cantley House Hotel Wedding Photography

Are you looking for a local Cantley House wedding photographer? I am a Berkshire wedding photographer, based in nearby Bagshot, only 20 minutes from Cantley House.

The Venue

Cantley House is a real hidden gem of a wedding venue, just on the edge of Wokingham, Berkshire. A privately owned Victorian country house hotel set in 50 acres of grounds. Approached down a long drive, this very English mansion oozes charm from a bygone era, it was once owned by the Marquis of Ormonde. Even more of a surprise is the 17th Century barn, called the Briar, that is part of the hotel. There are so many possibilities with this lovely wedding venue. The large lawn can accomodate a marquee if you’re having a huge wedding reception. Ceremonies can be held in the gazebo, in the Briar or in the Oak Room. Cantley house is a beautiful setting for your wonderful day, and a short walk down the drive takes you to the field – a gorgeous spot for some romantic couple photos.

Great Location

If you want to get married outside London, not far from the Berkshire countryside, this versatile venue could be perfect for your wedding day. Only a few minutes from the centre of Wokingham and close to the M4 and Reading, with it’s train station. It makes access really easy for friends and family. And Heathrow airport is only 40 minutes away, ideal for your international guests. 


I’m Mercedes and I’m a local wedding photographer. If you are looking for relaxed, creative wedding photography, then look no further. I will provide you with lots of candid photographs that tell the story of your day. Your bride and groom portraits will be relaxed and stress-free. I won’t take you away for ages – this is your day and I know you want to be enjoying the party not spending the day “having photos”!

Helpful staff

The staff at Cantley House will help you to organise the day of your dreams. You put so much hard work into the planning of your wedding day and want everything to be perfect.Whether you choose to spend the whole day here, from getting ready to ceremony to wedding breakfast and evening party. Or if you have always wanted to get married in church there is plenty of choice locally.


On the day, the whole team led by Diane ensures that everything runs smoothly. My experience is that everyone is helpful, nothing is too much to ask and it’s all done with a smile. You’re going to have an amazing day at Cantley House.

Formal Group Photos

My favourite place for wedding group photos is just outside the Oak Room. It’s a great background for some lovely photos, nice for confetti too. On a bright sunny day this area may not work, so to avoid everyone squinting at the camera you may prefer to opt for the garden greenery as a backdrop.

Wedding Photography Style

My wedding photography style is natural and focuses on creating photos that tell your wedding story in an authentic and timeless way. I love capturing lots of wedding guest and couple reactions with candid photography. Whether that’s tears of laughter at the best man’s speech or tears of joy and nervousness when you first see each other. You will get all the shots that will help you to remember the moments of your special day. I can be with you on your wedding day from bridal preparation right through to your first dance and the party. And you can always order a wedding album afterwards.
