Basingstoke Register Office (sometimes referred to at "Registry Office) is a pretty wedding venue both inside and outside and is very popular with couples. Its located within walking distance just south of the town centre.

The Register Office staff are always very friendly and helpful and there are no onerous restrictions on professional wedding photography and video during ceremonies.

Peter has worked at this venue many times and is based just a few minutes drive away in between Basingstoke and Reading. He has supplied photos requested by Hampshire County Council for their use in their various information booklets e.g. this one.

Many couples who book Basingstoke Register Office prefer a strict target budget or may have low numbers of guests and so like to keep their professional photo coverage to just the Office and to the War Memorial Park which is a couple of hundred yards away. Peter offers special short notice / short duration packages for this - please enquire.

See Peter's galleries featuring some of the other nearby Register Offices at Newbury, Reading (old and new locations), Bracknell (old and new locations), and the Guildhall Windsor.

The first photo below shows the exterior of Basingstoke Register Office, otherwise known as "Goldings". The adjacent mature trees are invaluable for professional photographers and videographers as the available shade is ideal to obtain the best possible skin tones for all those essential wedding photos and films:

Basingstoke Register Office is a very popular wedding venue and there can be several weddings in quick succession especially on Saturdays. Therefore it can be a good idea to move just a few yards to the War Memorial Park for some of the must-have group photos and portraits. The park can also be busy on sunny summer weekends, including some organised events such as concerts so do check beforehand:

Parking can be tricky in the immediate area to do ask guests to allow for sufficient time. The "official" limousines are allowed to park in the private area next to the Office:

Some couples keep the photographic coverage limited to the Register Office and nearby War Memorial Park whilst others have further coverage at their nearby reception venue. This couple chose the Holiday Inn just to the south of Basingstoke town centre. The hotel is another popular wedding venue and Peter has shot there several times:

Some more semi-formal photos may be requested by couples once at their reception venue, in addition to lots of candid "reportage" shots:
