Christmas at Littleton Park House, Shepperton Film Studios: Commercial and Wedding Photographer
We photographed the Christmas commercial events at Pinewood Studios in December and the following week we went onto Littleton Park House at Shepperton Studios for their Christmas brochure.
With many weddings, wedding fairs and events covered by us at both studios, it was so lovely to be trusted to capture their commercial work.
Littleton Park House always looks incredible – it really is one of my favourite places to photograph, however it was a wonderful winter wonderland when we arrived! Sparkly, log fire and stunning lighting features were all added to the blank canvas to make it a luxurious Christmas event.

Words from the venue http://www.genuine-events.co.uk
This unique and exquisite Manor House dates back to the late 17th century and now nestles in the heart of one of Britain’s most famous film studios. With its elegant black and white marbled floor entrance, an original ornate fireplace and the breath-taking Orangery; it is the ideal backdrop.
Shepperton Studios is absolutely steeped in history, from its naissance as Littleton Park mansion in 1689 as family home for local nobleman Thomas Wood, through three centuries to where it is now as the world-famous, highly respected film studios. Despite a devastating fire in the late 1800s, the first glimmers of its current base in film stardom were sparked in 1931, when Norman Loudon acquired the Studios for his budding film company Sound City. In the 70s, the Old House that now homes our Orangery and Coffee Shop was owned by none other than The Who. During WWII, the Studios had their own part to play in the war effort; their prop-making expertise was channelled into building replica aircraft which were placed on runways to confuse the enemy! Its more conventional use is no less exciting. The sheer number of feature films shot at Shepperton is astounding – at over 150, this consists of well loved, box office and independent pictures. H stage’s 6ft built-in tank posed as the Great Lake in two Harry Potter films, and has housed incredible rigs such as a full-scale of Sir Walter Raleigh’s ship, and a full-scale Batcave. Other astonishing set-ups that the Studios have seen brought to life include 10 Downing Street and Heathrow Terminal 5 in Love Actually, the ‘tarts & vicars’ garden party where Bridget Jones suffers her infamous embarrassment as a bunny, and the huge Western Woods of Sleepy Hollow. A very selective list of other films include the 1979 Superman, Alien, The Princess Bride, Notting Hill, The Da Vinci Code, The Mummy Returns, Star Wars IV, Shakespeare in Love, Billy Elliot, Chocolat, Gladiator, The Boat That Rocked, Wimbledon and Troy.
