My Favourite Wedding Suppliers in Surrey and Hampshire
These are all wedding suppliers based in Surrey and Hampshire, who I’ve worked with and would thoroughly recommend to any bride and groom:
Me of course! Ginny Marsh Photography – www.ginnymarsh.co.uk
If I happen to be booked on your wedding day, I would be happy to recommend a few very talented photographers who I have worked with and know well.
I’d say my style is fun and relaxed, whilst glamorous and stylish. It has a fashion influence. I try to capture the emotions of the day whilst providing a piece of art that could go on the wall. I photograph the main events as well as the little details to make sure I tell the full story – you’ll be surprised by how much you didn’t even notice on the day! Please check out my wedding packages or contact me for more info.
Farnham Castle – www.farnhamcastle.com/wedding_celebrations
“Sitting discreetly above Farnham, the impressive castle exterior has provided strength and security for nearly a thousand years, offering its occupants a warm and welcoming interior. Now that experience can be exclusively yours. Steeped in the annals of English history, a place of important decisions and celebration alike, your day will take its place in the traditions of this unique award winning venue.”

Mercure Farnham Bush Hotel – www.mercure.com
I am proudly one of the recommended wedding suppliers at the Mercure Bush Hotel. I have lived in Farnham for most of my life so know the area really well and have done many weddings here. It offers plenty of options for photos – just ask for more info.

Licensed for Civil and Partnership Ceremonies, and as you might expect from one of the finest Surrey Wedding Venues, the estate with its stunning architecture and walled gardens make it an idyllic setting for any wedding. With the Vine Room and Orangery packages, you will not be able to find better value for money.”
Clandon Park – www.clandonpark.co.uk
I love Clandon Park in Guildford – it’s the perfect venue for all weather conditions, and the Tapestry Room, where ceremonies are held, offers beautiful natural light from big windows.
“You can enjoy exclusive use of Clandon Park for a reception, celebration meal and dancing after a civil ceremony performed here in the Tapestry Room or following a religious or civil marriage elsewhere. The charming parterre garden, a Maori meeting house and extensive grounds provide plenty of photo opportunities and space for outdoor games, as well as other areas to have drinks. We offer a full wedding service and your day is designed to your specific requirements. In order to ensure that you have a stress-free function, one or our events managers will arrange a meeting to discuss all of your arrangements, offer help finding the perfect musicians, florists, photographers, cake makers and any other suppliers you may need and liaise with the kitchen team.”
