Claire and Simon get married at Wellington Chapel, and Coworth Park, Ascot

We met Claire and Simon through Richard from FX Films as they are old friends and it turned out that their wedding would sadly be our very last Simplicity wedding (photography from us and videography from FX Films).

Claire got ready at the Aviator Hotel in Farnborough which had some very unique and stunning architecture, most impressively the grand central section which had a Starship Enterprise feel to it.

Being that Simon had gone to school at Wellington College in Crowthorne he was lucky enough to be allowed to use Wellington Chapel based there. The chapel is beautifully maintained and has some history around it as well as the memories for Simon being that he spent so much time at the College.

The wedding reception was Coworth Park in Ascot, another great choice. The hotel is owned by the Dorchester Collection who also own the Dorchester hotel in London and as such the quality of the reception, decor and the staff looking after Claire and Simon really showed and was exceptional.

During the reception we took Claire and Simon for a small stroll around the grounds and venue. We grabbed the FX Films guys as well and went to some locations Laura and I had eyed up to get a few couple photos. There are more couple shots than usual in this entry due to this and also more that aren’t shown but hopefully everyone loves couple shots as much as we do! After each photo we handed over to the guys at FX Films before moving on to the next shot so they could get their footage and minimise the amount of time Claire and Simon were away from their wedding.

On a personal note, it was myself and Laura’s three-year anniversary and during the speeches we were surprised that Claire and Simon presented us with some personalised cup cakes! It’s no surprise they didn’t last longer than twelve hours with us both having a sweet tooth.

We had a fantastic day with Simon and Claire and also working with our partner cinematography team Richard and Tim from FX Films, you can see their wedding highlights clip here!
