Our couple chose a short duration combined photography and video package starting just before their wedding ceremony at their local St Michaels Church Basingstoke Hampshire and finishing once everyone was seated for the wedding breakfast at a local hotel.

Its in the town centre and so unsurprisingly parking can be an issue. It is possible to obtain a church parking permit for those photographers and videographers who work with a lot of kit.

Peter shot a big variety of group photos once the ceremony was over. We completed these at the church and at the nearby wedding reception venue.
