Wedding Photographer Berkshire – Neil Palmer Photography
Hi, I’m Neil and I’ve been a full time Wedding Photographer in Berkshire for well over 25 years. I’m centrally based in Reading, so am ideally placed to photograph Weddings in Berkshire as well as the UK and overseas. I also run a very busy portrait photography studio from which I specialise in fine art photography of families and children. I also do PR, Business and Commercial Photography.
But first and foremost I’m a Wedding photographer because I genuinely enjoy meeting new people and cultures and seeing how they celebrate life. I have photographed Berkshire weddings of all faiths and from many nationalities. I also photograph weddings with just a handful of guests right up to very large weddings with hundreds of guests lasting several days.
I love wedding photography, its my real passion. I’m fortunate enough to have photographed weddings in Berkshire and beyond, over one thousand of them ! The furthest I have been to photograph a wedding is Australia and you can see these photos by clicking here
Please feel free to browse my blog and galleries to get an idea of how I work and what I do. You can also see what others say about me by visiting my Wedding Photography Reviews page.

My approach to wedding photography.
Please have a look at this short video which summarises how I photograph weddings. I’m a documentary wedding photographer which means no posing, directing or bossing around. I carry the very minimum amount of gear and my two small cameras can almost fit into my pockets. You’ll hardly notice I’m there photographing your wedding and occasionally some wedding guests have been know to ask the couple ‘ did you have a professional wedding photographer ?’ This is a far cry from when I first started photographing weddings in Berkshire back in the 90’s when everything was staged and set up – huge, heavy cameras on tripods, endless group photos and line ups.
Wedding Venues in Berkshire
I’m fortunate enough to have photographed at many fantastic wedding venues in Berkshire. Some that immediately spring to mind – The Olde Bell in Hurley, The Great House in Sonning, Lillibrooke Manor in Maidenhead, The Mill House in Swallowfield, Cantley House Hotel in Wokingham, The Royal Berkshire Hotel in Ascot. I also love the informality of outdoor weddings and I have photographed several weddings at The Monkey Island Hotel in Bray outside on the lawn. Marquee weddings are also a big favourite and I have photographed a few weddings at Mapledurham House on the banks of The Thames.
So if you are planning a Berkshire Wedding there’s a good chance I have photographed at your venue before.
