I love working at Shepperton Studios. It is a beautiful location with the most interesting background you can imagine. So many amazing movies have been made here and it is just brilliant driving past the massive sound studios as you wind your way around to Littleton House, the beautiful building where the weddings take place. Complete with a light-flooded orangery, Littleton House itself is packed with movie memorabilia and wonderful features, including a fabulous staircase and the marble floor you see above. It’s no wonder film buffs Gina and Sam wanted to get married there, and so they did last year on a typical English weather day of sun, clouds, wind and showers.
Gina and her bridesmaids all got ready at Gina’s mum’s, while Sam and is family and friends gathered at the Crown in nearby Chertsey. The Crown is a gorgeous old coachhouse dating from the 18th century. The ceremony was held at the studios as well, meaning once we were there, we could settle in and enjoy the day. After the ceremony, we popped upstairs to see some of the film posters on display (after watching Johnny Depp, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham Carter depart work for the day) and a quick pose on the bed from Braveheart (family friendly, of course!). Then dinner, speeches and dancing, with everyone having a wonderful time. I cannot wait to work there again. Please enjoy the pictures. Jude x
