Close to London with easy access to the M3 and M25, Surrey is always a really popular location for weddings.
There are loads of beautiful wedding venues in Surrey so I get asked to do a lot of wedding videography in the area.
Recently I had the pleasure of carrying out the wedding videography for Michelle and Graeme’s wedding at Great Fosters Hotel in Egham,
Surrey which was an absolutely stunning place to film.
Great Fosters Hotel is a historic country house with a history that dates back over 400 years.
It was converted into a stunning hotel in the 1930s and it is still a spectacular hotel wedding venue today.
In addition to its superb period features, Great Fosters also has spectacular grounds and a lots of beautiful spaces so it was no surprise that Michelle and Graham chose Great Fosters as the location for their wedding.
Best Great Fosters Hall Videography
Graeme proposed to Michelle in the beautiful gardens at Sudeley Castle so when they visited Great Fosters Hotel, the magnificent 50 acres of grounds, beautiful Tithe Barn and close proximity to home made it the perfect match for Graeme and Michelle.
After meeting online many years ago Graeme and Michelle were particularly looking forward to being able to bring their two young children back to Great Fosters in the future and knew that it would become a special place for their family in the years to come.
The Grade II-listed, centuries old Tithe Barn really appealed to Graeme and Michelle but there are plenty of other spaces for you to choose from at the venue.
There is a dazzling Orangery with beautiful tall windows and amazing views across the divine gardens, an elegant Archery Pavilion that can be used for a wonderful outdoor ceremony in the grounds and the glorious Painted Hall that is a popular choice for drinks receptions.
Paying homage to Graeme’s Scottish routes the day kicked off with the distinct tones of a bagpipe player whilst the final preparations were made.
Great Fosters Wedding Film
Michelle and Graeme chose the hotel’s light-filled Orangery for their ceremony and it was a really special moment when the double doors opened as Michelle made her way down the aisle. The weather was gorgeous so we had plenty of time to capture the beauty of the gardens and parkland on film. The grounds at Great Fosters are full of lots beautiful features including a magnificent Japanese bridge, a lake and ornamental gardens so it is an amazing place to film.
Family and friends enjoyed drinks in the gardens then it was on to the divine Tithe Barn with its dramatic vaulted oak beam ceiling for the reception. It was a really beautiful reception filled with lots of love and warmth as well as great music.
Family and friends are really important to Graeme and Michelle and one of my favourite moments was when the couple each danced with their loved ones.
Great Fosters Wedding Venue
With music from Sinatra and a DJ there was something for everyone and the dancefloor was packed until late into the night.
Great Fosters is an amazing place to film. Each space has its own distinct character and the amount of features in the gardens and parkland are incredible with the added touch of magic that comes from the history of the place – there is even a Saxon moat.
If any of your guests do want to spend a bit more time here, there are 41 luxe suites which are also handy for preparations before the wedding too.
