The Lismoyne Hotel Fleet Hampshire is a very popular venue for marriage ceremonies and wedding receptions. The hotel is not far from the M25 and M3 motorways so is well situated for guests travelling from far afield. It is of course surrounded by the busy towns of Farnham, Farnborough, Aldershot and Camberley.

Wedding and civil partnership ceremonies for this area of Hampshire are the legal responsibility of the Aldershot Register Office and the registrars are always a delight to work with. As the professional photographer Peter is able to shoot a full range of photos and video during ceremonies.

The hotel has a good selection of interior areas including an ornate staircase and open fireplace suitable for the posed photos should the weather let you down. The gardens are surrounded on all sides by building and trees and these are great windbreaks on windy or chilly days! There is an old fashioned spiral fire escape leading into the gardens from the upper bedrooms and this is ideal to use when shooting large groups where a view from above can be desirable.

The hotel has plenty of onsite parking but its also a busy hotel and this can make it difficult to achieve a "clean" photo of the front of the hotel without parked cars obscuring the view. In fact its pretty much impossible unless you have an all day photographic coverage and Peter can be in position before lots of guests arrive.

Outdoor civil wedding ceremonies in England have to take place under a permanent structure - otherwise they are not legally valid. Hence the elaborate gazebo / pergola in the gardens at the Lismoyne Hotel. This itself presents some challenges for professional photography and videography because the VIPs tend to be bunched together often with backs towards the cameras, underneath the structure the light levels are much lower than the surroundings, and the structure itself presents barriers to obtaining "clean" shots. Roll on changes in legislation to allow truly outdoor ceremonies as is possible in Scotland!

The final decorations were not added to the gazebo area until just before the start of the ceremony. You can see things taking shape in the next photo, shot earlier in the day:

The difference in natural light between the lightest and darkest areas is called the dynamic range, and it is very great on a sunny day. Fortunately modern software can help bring out more detail in the lightest and darkest areas - ideal for ceremonies within an outdoor gazebo:

There is easy access to the fire escape adjacent to the enclosed gardens at the Lismoyne Hotel and this is an ideal position from which to shoot big group photos:

There are lots of mature trees providing plenty of shade - thats good for portrait photos:

The dark wood staircase is a must have location for some bride and groom photos:

There are some photogenic locations around and about the interior of the Lismoyne Hotel. These can be good for after dark evening photos. Its also very useful if the weather is uncooperative as all the group and portrait photos can be shot inside:
