I shot a number of weddings in 2013 at Southampton Register Office in Bugle Street. It's a great venue with a number of options for wedding photographs among the red brick archways and photography inside isn't bad either. Wedding photography is tricky in churches which tend to be dark and pretty challenging because one is not allowed to use flash.
At register offices, though, it tends to be more relaxed with flash allowed which makes for great ceremony photographs for your wedding album.
But at Southampton Register Office you've got the added benefits of the Tudor House and Gardens, Medieval Merchant's House and St Michael's Church all of which can provide great backdrops to your wedding photographs and are a boon to a wedding photographer looking to ring the changes!
Bronwyn and Kevin had booked me just for some bridal getting ready shots and the ceremony and formals afterwards but I managed to persuade them to come with me to the Tudor House just up Bugle Street. It provides a lovely background, particularly to a wedding shot.
This shot made it into their wedding album and onto a canvas over a metre wide which (even if I say so myself) looks absolutely amazing!
