When Chloe and Dan told me they were getting married at a film studio I thought they were joking. I mean it’s only celebs and Hollywood A listers who would be so extravagant, surely? But Littleton House is a Surrey wedding venue that is set within the Shepperton Studios, itself part of the renowned Pinewood film studios.
A 17th century manor house set within the hangers of a film studio is certainly one of the more unique and unusual wedding venues I have ever had the pleasure to shoot at…but it’s that uniqueness that makes it one of the best Surrey wedding venues.
Ashford Bridal Preparations
As usual I turned up at Dan and Chloe’s home in Ashford, Surrey a couple of hours before the wedding ceremony at Littleton House, in order to document the bridal preparations. It would be fair to say it was one of the more relaxed bridal preparations I’ve captured, with plenty of smiles and laughs – although there were a few tears that flowed once Chloe got into her beautiful wedding dress.
A Different Perspective
It was then just a short drive over to Shepperton, for the main part of the wedding day at Littleton House, where Dan and his groomsmen had already arrived. One of the great things about the venue is the chance to shoot down from an upper floor, directly above where the wedding ceremony takes place – and of course as wedding photographer I took full advantage of that.
A Walk Through The Woods
Another lovely thing about Littleton House for wedding photography is the opportunity to take some portraits in a small woods, beside a stream, just at the back of the studios. This was perfect to get some more formal portraits of the happy couple, before returning back to the main house for the meal, speeches and evening wedding reception.
A Unique Surrey Wedding Venue
As a wedding photojournalist a wedding a Littleton House provides so many opprtunities to capture all the natural emotions and genuine moments that make up the wedding story, against such a fantastic and unique Surrey wedding venue.
Wedding Fun & The Damage Done
And, despite the fact I managed to smash the electronic viewfinder on one of my Olympus OMD EM5 camera bodies and chipped the glass of my Olympus Pro 7-14mm zoom lens during the day, it was a fanastic day at such a great wedding venue in Surrey.
I hope you enjoy a small selection of the wedding photography from their day and please do feel free to share across social media.
