I recently posted some Caversham House wedding pictures taken in the hidden garden and the marquee, and I’ve already had several people email and ask about the venue. So I hope you don’t mind indulging me in sharing a few more photos from Sian & Andres’ wedding, as well as offer my opinions on Caversham House as a wedding venue.
The Hidden Garden
The thing I LOVE about Caversham house is the amazing light. Because the ceremony took place literally IN the Swan Valley, it had really nice even shade and a cool breeze the whole time.
I’m sure you’ve all been to an outdoor wedding where the sun is blasting into the groom’s eyes and the bride’s back is to the sun, so her face in in complete shade. If not, let me tell you, it isn’t an ideal situation for the couple and can create unique challenges for the wedding photographer 🙂
The Caversham House Marquee
The Caversham House Marquee is so elegantly designed and yet still provides excellent outdoor areas for the smokers amongst your guests beautiful views if they step outside during the reception. You will notice in this next photo the large ornate mirror that people enter the tent and see first… An awesome first impression.
The crystal chandeliers add a glamorous touch to the space, along with providing luxurious light through the entire space. As you can see here, when it comes to photographing the wedding favours, the mix of outside blue light and indoor yellow light creates a gorgeous range of tones.
I kid you not, the food at Caversham House is on par with some of the finest restaurants in the world. Charlotte and I are lucky enough to travel quite a bit, and we love dining at well reviewed restaurants whenever we can…. And Caversham House are up there with the best of them. All the food was served hot, fresh and had large enough portions to be sure everybody was able to try each menu item.
The Dance Floor
When it comes to having a memorable wedding, a large part of people’s memory is going to be how good the DJ & Dance floor went off. I can safely say that the Caversham Marquee was perfect for that. The dance floor was placed among the tables, which allows people to slip on and off the dance floor easily, and also means that people’s infection energy will draw less eager dancers onto the floor. You really can’t beat that!
Overall I’d give the Caversham House Marquee a solid 10/10. Service was outstanding. Number of photography locations was excellent. Vibe is a definite 10 too.
If you are getting married and considering this venue for your wedding, please don’t hesitate to give me a ring if you have any questions.
