Comments from Paul Martin:
Richmond Registry Office is a popular venue for small civil marriages. The Office is conveniently located in Richmond, near the town centre, and occupies what was once a private home. There is a small garden and waiting are at the back of the house where some group photographs may be taken. However,I have found it is best for most formal group requests to be undertaken before the actual ceremony, as the garden can become quite busy with subsequent wedding ceremonies.

Although the main marriage room is small, it is tastefully decorated to a high standard. I have always been able to capture beautiful photographs of marraige proceedings. After the ceremony, confetti can be thrown by guests at the exit door, which nicely portrays the Edwardian character of the building.

On many occassions, I have subsequently gone with the bride and groom down to Richmond Bridge to capture some creative and memorable wedding photographs by the Thames. There are also a few characterful cobbled streets nearby, which makes for great black & white reportage photographs. In these circumstances, I have found Richmond Registry Office to be a good wedding venue, particularly for small civil ceremonies. Within Richmond, there are numerous hotels and restaurants suitable for hosting wedding reception/dinners.
