Background Information and Highlights:

Our featured couple chose the Apollo Hotel Basingstoke Hampshire for their wedding ceremony and reception.

The Apollo Hotel is a modern wedding venue on the northern outskirts of Basingstoke. It is located close to the ringroad as so is easily reached from the M3 and M4 motorways and of course Reading and Newbury. There is plenty of free onsite parking available. The foyer lounge and bar areas have a nice decor and so can be good alternatives should the weather be inclement and outside wedding photography limited. There are some landscaped wooded areas to the rear of the Apollo Hotel and you'll see from the main galleries that these can serve very nicely as backdrops for the various group photos.

The registrars responsible for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies at the Apollo Hotel Basingstoke are from the Aldershot Register Office. As always they were a pleasure to work with and Peter was able to shoot the ceremony in full both in stills and video.

Our bride and groom chose a short duration combined photography and video package which started shortly before the ceremony and finished after the speeches at the start of the wedding breakfast.

The hotel is shamelessly modern in appearance as you can see in the first photo below. But "modern" does not mean "new" and there are plenty of mature trees surrounding it which can provide the shade so desirable for the best portraiture photography:

We took advantage of the shade to grab a few shots of our groom and best man just before kickoff:

"Modern" does not mean "plain" and there are some nice locations in the public areas inside the hotel for the essential posed wedding photos:

Very soon the civil ceremony was over and it as time for drinks and congratulations ..... and photos:
