Artington House Guildford Wedding Photography
Artington House on the Portsmouth Road linking Guildford and Godalming is ideal for couples wanting an intimate register office ceremony with family and friends and to hold their reception at one of the huge selection of venues in the area.
Below is just a small selection of some of my favourite weddings shot at Artington House over the years (click to play slideshows)
Made famous by Peter Sellers marriage to Britt Ekland in 1964, Artington House Guildford is one of eight houses built in the early 1860s by Richard Shepard, an insurance broker, on land purchased from William Elkins, a brewer and former three times Mayor of Guildford. It is a fine example of elegant mid-Victorian architecture, complete with gables and wisteria.
The south-facing house is set in its own grounds in a semi-rural situation on the outskirts of Guildford. It offers a delightful garden enhanced by stone garden furniture, a rose arbour, and a terrace, all making an ideal setting for your ceremony and your photographs. Steps descend to the car park for guests on ground originally laid out as tennis courts. Further car parking is available on Saturdays at the front of the house. Artington House Guildford is also perfectly situated opposite the delightful Ye Olde Ship Inn, perfect for that pre-ceremony drink to calm the nerves!
