A very small selection of photos in this feature wedding venue gallery. If you are planning a wedding in the area do take a look at the Prices, the Photo Galleries, the Videos, and the Albums. This gallery illustrates just one of many for you to browse e.g. some other Register Offices Peter has worked at many times: Guildford, Basingstoke, Reading, Newbury.
The "new" Richmond Register Office (sometimes known as the "Registry Office") n.b. it is no longer located in the old Victorian villa nearby, is on the banks of the River Thames in Kingston upon Thames. It is a lovely building and has luscious mature gardens and grounds. You can walk over to the riverbank but it can get busy in the summer so many couples stay within the grounds.
Parking is in short supply so do recommend to your guests that they allow sufficient time.
The staff are very easy-going - and always have been so - and there are no silly rules regarding professional photography and video during marriage ceremonies other than the usual one of no shooting whilst the signing of the civil register is being signed n.b. it is OK and quite normal to do a pretend signing afterwards using a blank register.

Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. Do not steal now, and that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you do steal, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you. (With appreciation to Bryan in "Taken").
