Christmas is such a special time of year at the best of times and to make it even more special we were given the honour of documenting Catherine and David’s festive wedding at our favourite venue Littleton Park, Shepperton Studios Christmas Wedding Photographer.
Shepperton Studios is one my favourite venues to photograph for two reasons: the character of the venue and the staff. Genuine Events are so inviting and have a wonderful team to work with at weddings and commercial events alike. The venue is something else. If you like film history and memorabilia then this is the one for you. The Bafta, the chequered flooring, the quirky little areas that tell the story of the building and the gorgeous maze area at the front of the house that is perfect for group photographs.
This couple went for the perfect Christmas theme. Not over the top, but festive understated. Sara from Expressit Flowers dressed the ceremony room around the fire place with huge rose pedestals and features over the fire surround with of course the most beautiful spruce fir tree. To our delight they lit the grand fire which added a further dimension to the day.
It was such a pleasure to be a witness to the day and capture those special moments.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, we have limited availability for this year and the year after. Contact us for brochure.
Information from Genuine Events wedding co-ordinators for Shepperton Studios:
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.
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! 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.
