In 1994 the iconic film, Four Weddings and a Funeral was filmed at the stunning Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa. This included scenes shot in the original Robert Adam designed ballroom as well as one of the bedroom suites where Hugh Grant is found hiding in a wardrobe. Elite Hotels owns 4 of the country’s grandest hotels including Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, Tylney Hall Hotel, The Grand Hotel Eastbourne and Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.
Tying in with the Four Weddings theme, a major marketing initiative was developed to generate awareness of the four hotels magnificent setting as wedding venues.
On the 1st March 2104, Luton Hoo hosted a ‘Real Wedding’ event in the mansion house and invited a number of key Editors & Journalists from You & Your Wedding, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Sunday Express Magazine, Marie Claire Magazine, Your Herts & Beds Wedding Magazine and Ultimate Wedding Magazine.
We were honoured to have been invited as one the key recommended suppliers to Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa to participate in this event. Our brief was that this needed to be photographed as if it was a real wedding, with actors playing the role of Bride & Groom, Mother & Father of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, Bridesmaid and Best Man.
We will leave the story of the day to the journalists, however you can view the event Slideshow here;

This is why we love our work! When we receive written feedback from our Bride & Groom, weeks after the wedding and honeymoon celebrations have died down and they have had time to reflect on the images we have captured of their special day.
A big thank you to Chris & Nicole for their lovely words…
“The moment we met Andre and Suzanne we knew they were the photographers for our wedding day. They were friendly, helpful and understood the importance of our special day. From the first consultation through to the wedding day Andre and Suzanne were very professional and had our best interests at heart. Andre and Suzanne are a great team and it was a pleasure having them take our photos.
The photos were amazing and captured everything we could possibly ask for. We would highly recommend BMP to friends and family“.

Our latest Wedding Venue spotlight is on Fanhams Hall in Ware, Hertfordshire, where we will have the pleasure of photographing Nicole & Chris’s Wedding on the 27th July 2013.
This luxury and unique wedding venue is outstanding with warming open fires in winter, tumbling waterfalls in summer and beautiful private rooms with stunning features of the original Grade II listed Jacobean manor house all year round. They offer impeccable service in comfortable and relaxed surroundings.
With both formal gardens and rambling grounds, carved staircases and ornate fireplaces, there are a wealth of perfect picture opportunities to enjoy at this country house wedding venue.
An exceptional combination where old tradition meets the 21st century, Fanhams Hall Hotel is a Jacobean Manor House converted into a dedicated training and meeting venue designed to be different. The hotel’s Hertfordshire location is just a short distance from all the major routes into London, Stansted, M1, M25 or simply the A10 just around the corner.
