Littleton House Wedding Photography – Chloe & Dan – Back in the Day

Back in the Day

Another year, another 1st wedding anniversary.  Yes, today a year ago I was shooting Chloe and Dan’s wedding at Littleton House at Shepperton Studios in Surrey.

Having been up in Northamptonshire the day before, to shoot Amy and Mark’s wedding, it was down to a Surrey wedding venue much closer to home for Chloe and Dan’s big day.  As a couple they had been really keen on my storytelling documentary approach to their wedding story, so again it was a wedding I was massively looking forward to.

A Unique Surrey Wedding Venue

Littleton House is a unique manor house wedding venue that, rather unusually, sits within the famous Shepperton film studios in Surrey.  This alone makes it one of the most interesting wedding venues in Surrey.  It’s not many brides who can say they got married where parts of films – such as Harry Potter, Love Actually, Bridget Jones’ Diary, The Princess Bride and the Da Vinci Code – were shot!

So Chloe and Dan were definitely in esteemed company as they celebrated their wedding with friends and family in such famous surroundings.  I must confess that I didn’t realise at the time that I took Chloe and Dan down to the small woods and lake it was one of the creepier settings in a Harry Potter film. Thankfully, there were no fantastic beasts to deal with on the day.

Gremlins & The Damage Done

However, it was a wedding where I certainly suffered some damage – a camera viewfinder getting smashed, and a lens getting chipped – so maybe there were some nasty gremlins about…for the wedding photographer at least!

None of which was the couple’s fault and it would be fair to say it was definitely a fantastic and memorable wedding…for all the right reasons.  So I’m delighted to wish Chloe and Dan a very happy first anniversary!

Woodlands Park Hotel: Surrey Wedding Venue

Wedding Venue

Woodlands Park Hotel in Stoke d’Abernon, near Cobham, is one of Surrey’s best wedding venues. I had the privilege of shooting there just a few days before Christmas last year, for Elaine and Marisa’s wonderful wedding and what a wonderful day it was in such a beautiful Surrey setting.

Part of the Handpicked Hotel’s chain, the Woodlands Park Hotel is a Grade II listed stately 19th century mansion house that had been originally commissioned by English industrialist William Bryant, himself the son of the founder of the famous old match company Bryant & May. So, as you might expect, the Woodlands Park oozes style and class in its 8 acres of landscaped grounds and gardens, just a small distance from the equally beautiful Surrey Hills.

Being a December wedding, when I documented Elaine and Marisa’s wedding at the Woodlands Park, it was a rather wet and grey day, but that couldn’t distract from the beauty of the hotel as a wedding venue. In many ways, the traditional wet winter weather added to its rather traditional English charm, but I’m sure it’s just as stunning as summer wedding venue too.

So, given the damp weather outside, Marisa and Elaine did contain their wedding to inside the hotel – but with its traditional wood paneled rooms and suites, open fireplaces and grand central staircase it’s as beautiful inside as out.

Of course, being a few days before Christmas, when I photographed Elaine and Marisa’s wedding story, the hotel was festively decorated for Christmas with a large Christmas tree the centre piece of the reception area. You really couldn’t ask for any more if you are planning a winter wedding!

I really cannot recommend the Woodland Park Hotel enough as a fantastic Surrey wedding venue. Hopefully this small selection of my wedding photography demonstrates how wonderful a wedding venue it is, and I would encourage any couple who are thinking of getting married there to go ahead…you definitely will not be disappointed!
