Peter was commissioned to shoot some photos for the wedding brochure for the Guildhall Kingston Upon Thames. This is a new venture for the Guildhall as a wedding venue. The staff found Peter through his very extensive website and were impressed with his work - as were hundreds of previous wedding clients! Here are some comments from clients whose weddings Peter shot in and around the Kingston area:
We love the photos! In fact everyone who's seen them has said how good they look, they're all fabulous - thank you! And thanks for all your hard work on the day. We also also love the video :-)
Rachel and Mike (Pembroke Lodge)
Thank you so much! The photos look amazing and we are very pleased with the final result. The Galleries look great! And we are thrilled with our GraphiStudio album. Your work and the album have far exceeded our expectations and we want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We'll be sure to recommend you to all our friends.
Helen and Martin (Pembroke Lodge)
Thanks for all the pictures you took at our wedding – they are lovely. We are really happy with them.
Inge-Lise and Adrian (Pembroke Lodge)
Our photos are lovely! You take beautiful shots. Thank you so much. On the day I was quite overwhelmed as the bride - you were so polite with me!
Emma and Cyril (Pembroke Lodge)
We really like our photos - you managed to capture us just as we were and the pictures of guests and family turned out really well.
Jill and Justin (All Saints Church Ealing & Pembroke Lodge)
Once again we would like to thank you for our lovely wedding photos. My make up artist and hairdresser would like to use some of your photos for their portfolios. Also, the events coordinator from Lovekyn chapel would like to use some of the ceremony pictures to add to the Lovekyn Chapels website.
Melissa (Lovekyn Chapel & Glenmore House)
As well as taking hundreds of beautiful photographs, Peter captured the most special moments of our day on video (ceremony and speeches). He did this in such a way that we were unaware of his presence and the results are entirely natural and captured the magical atmosphere in a way that photographs do not always. The video also includes many stills so that it catalogues the whole day. We have watched the video over and over again and we are sure our children and grandchildren will love doing the same. Thank you for everything Peter, 10/10!
Katy D (Glenmore House)
Hello Peter, fab photos!
Gill (Lovekyn Chapel)
Thankyou for all our photos - they are fantastic!
Melanie (Hampton Court Palace)
Thanks for our wedding photos - they are just fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the video - a wonderful reminder of our day which we will treasure. We would like to order 12 extra copies of our video. And we are so pleased with our Graphistudio wedding album - it is impressive!
The Guildhall Kingston is located in the centre of town very close to the River Thames. Its busy in the area as you might expect; there is some reservable parking nearby for wedding parties.
The Old Court House is the nearest Register Office - its situated in the same building! So you can have your ceremony and reception all in one place. Areas outside suitable for group photos and bridal portraits are limited so you may consider walking over Horse Fair Bridge to the Hampton Court Gardens or taking a short ride to nearby Richmond Park (check for permissions and fees for use first).
