Leatherhead Register Office was originally built during the reign of Henry VIII and later rebuilt in the 1800’s. It’s a beautiful building steeped in history and is now a Register Office attracting bride and grooms from Surrey for their weddings. Having shot several ceremonies here I was really excited to return for Sedef and Neil’s big day in December last year. The couple had opted for an intimate wedding with the ceremony taking place in the State Room which is furnished in blue, cream and gold and features stunning mahogany woodwork. I began the day 15 minutes before the ceremony capturing guests arriving before Sedef and her two daughters made their entrance in a beautiful 1960’s Rolls Royce. After walking down the aisle the newlyweds headed in to the adjoining conservatory which features the iconic wrought iron ‘kissing seat’ where their friends and family congratulated them! It was a cold but very sunny Autumnal day and this made for some nice soft light for the group shots and couple shoot around the grounds and terrace. Leatherhead Register Office is one of my favourites as the large lawns and walkways provide the perfect backdrop for wedding photos and Sedef and Neil were very relaxed in front of the camera. I really enjoyed working with them and their email response to the final images was warmly appreciated……..
“Thank you so much for the photos, as expected from looking at your previous work they are amazing and natural just like we asked for. Your work rate on the day was exceptional and you made us and all of our guests feel very comfortable while you were snapping away.” – Sedef & Neil
