I've had a good look through all the photographs and am really pleased; there are some great shots of everyone. There are certainly some lovely pictures of us that I would be proud to show off to anyone! I loved the relaxed style of your photography, and thankyou for capturing the essence of the day which was to have fun.
Joanne and Roy chose the very popular Leatherhead Register Office in the town centre of Leatherhead Surrey for their marriage ceremony.
The register office staff are easy to work with and there are no onerous restrictions on professional photography during the wedding ceremony. Weddings on high season days can be every 45 minutes so couples should ensure that they are not running late - in previous years ceremonies were very 30 minutes so its easier now! One option to give you some wiggle room is to book the last time of the day, which is what Joanne and Roy did.
Leatherhead has extensive well-tended gardens to the rear and you'll see there are steps on which large groups can be posed ensuring that everyone in the group can be seen.
From the register office - sometimes called the registry office we made the short trip to the Preston Cross Hotel in nearby Bookham Surrey for a relaxed informal wedding reception. The sun shone and it was a real delight to be in the Preston Cross gardens, which are very well stocked and maintained. We completed some of Joanne and Roys' other formal photos requests in the gardens, in between breaks for some of the guests to enjoy a kick-about.
The couple booked short duration photographic coverage from the latter stages of "getting ready" to the end of the "cocktail hour".
