Not all images "work" in black and white. Some have been selected as suitable for conversion and can be viewed within the main galleries. Others can be uploaded for you on request.

Guests - no highspeed internet access? Please request a free CD of these galleries (please note that images are watermarked and not printable).

Please forward this event to your friends and relations – Ashton Lamont does not collect guests email addresses at weddings but there are always lots of requests to view the galleries. And remember Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Bebo etc!

We hope you enjoy the galleries and may be able to recommend Ashton Lamont to friends and colleagues for our wedding, event, portrait, and commercial work.

Guests: High quality individually edited photographic prints or printready digital files can be purchased. See the Online Order Form clickable underneath each fullsize image or contact us with your specific requirements and with your credit or debit card details or send in a cheque (payee “Ashton Lamont”). You can also pay by internet bank transfer – contact us for the sort code and account number.

All prints sized 7”x5”, 9”x6”, and 10”x8” come with a lovely black bevelled matte ready for display. All these print sizes cost the same but you may wish to avoid 10”x8” unless the print is intended for a readymade frame of that size because its aspect ratio involves cropping some content from the two shortest sides of the image – compare a widescreen television to a standard television – 9”x6” resembles widescreen and 10”x8” resembles standard. If an image does not work in 10x8 it is supplied in 9x6.

Background Information:

Susan and Paul chose the unusual and characterful Ripley Arts Centre Bromley Kent for their marriage ceremony and wedding reception.

The Ripley Arts Centre is a lovely rambling but well maintained Victorian villa with strong musical associations. There are at least two grand pianos in the building! Outside there are large and varied gardens to the rear with plenty of variety and some shade should it be necessary to dodge bright sunlight.

Since it is located in Bromley close to south east London it has good communications both by train and from the nearby M25 motorway. Parking on site is very limited and so guests should allow for this and not cut timings too fine!

Susan and Paul booked a short duration photographic package starting shortly before the bride's processional into the ceremony and ending after the wedding breakfast speeches. Its surprising the breadth of coverage you can fit into just a few short hours as you'll see from the galleries.

As usual the registrars responsible for weddings and civil partnership ceremonies in the Bromley Kent area were easy to work with and Peter was able to shoot a good variety of both photos and video during our couples ceremony.

The photo below shows the view of the main building from the gardens at the rear. Its hard to do the building's character justice in a factual style wide angle photo that takes in the whole of the structure:

A more intimate photo like the next one taken later in the day might give you a better take on the bygone feel to the Ripley Arts Centre. We can see guests relaxing around the old conservatory. Don't you wish you had mature wisterias like those growing underneath its roof!

The main function room - the Music Room - at the Ripley Arts Centre Bromley has a nice clean well-maintained vibe to it. The full length windows to one side let in good natural light. Professional photographers will need to take into account the room lighting in order to achieve true colours as the light temperatures give the subjects a very distinct yellow tint. Guests - look up "setting manual colour balance" for your compact camera if you want to reduce the tint! The next photograph shows the ceremony in full swing from the back of the Music Room:

The Bromley registrars are very easy-going and professional photographers should have no problems in shooting a good variety of photos during the ceremony, including the exchange of rings:

Guests are discouraged from taking photos during the ceremony as this can be distracting for the couple especially if flashes go off (which professional photographers are unlikely to use at this point in the day). But there is usually an opportunity for guests to take their own photos towards the end of the ceremony when the registrars arrange the couple for that purpose, as in the next photo:

The Ripley Arts Centre Bromley Kent has strong artistic credentials as you might expect, particularly with regard to music. The Music Room has a very impressive piano on its stage which couples can of course arrange to be played during their wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast:

Whilst guests enjoy drinks nibbles and a chat during the "cocktail hour" the Music Room can be turned around ready for the wedding breakfast. The Ripley Arts Centre has good catering facilities which your own caterers can use. Here we can see the Music Room just about ready for the start of our couples meal:

There are some characterful photos to be had of the Ripley Arts Centre Bromley after dark and these can make a great final page to your wedding album. The next photo shows an alternative view of the rear of the building from the willow tree area of the gardens:
