Wilmott Productions has had the privilege of filming wedding celebrations at exquisite venues and locales, across Europe (and locally, in the Los Angeles area). Here are some of my personal favorites...
london, united kingdom
Arguably the most exclusive wedding and event venue in the world, Kensington Palace has been a royal residence for more than three centuries. It is the official residence of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and other prominent members of the British Royal Family. In 1819, Queen Victoria was born at the palace. Diana, Princess of Wales, resided at Kensington Palace during her marriage to Prince Charles.
The Goring Hotel
london, united kingdom
Located near Buckingham Palace - in one of central London's most exclusive and elegant neighborhoods - the 5-star Goring Hotel opened in 1910. It is the last remaining family-owned luxury hotel in the city, and has been favored by members of the British Royal Family.
The Millennium Biltmore
los angeles, california, usa
Opened in 1923, the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel remains one of the most luxurious hotels in Los Angeles.
The exterior is inspired by Spanish and Italian Renaissance styles, while the interior is adorned with frescoes, murals, marble, crystal, bronze, and gold. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences was founded at the Biltmore; the hotel also served as an early home of the Academy Awards Ceremony (aka. the "Oscars").
Beverly Wilshire Hotel
beverly hills, california, usa
The luxurious Beverly Wilshire Hotel opened in 1928.
A historic icon, the hotel is a popular filming location for films and television series. Situated across from Beverly Hills' famous Rodeo Drive, the Beverly Wilshire serves high-end wedding and event clientele.
Wilmott Productions is proud to be a preferred wedding and event cinematographer at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.
the Royal Site of
San Lorenzo de El Escorial
san lorenzo de el escorial, spain
Completed in 1584, the Royal Site of San Lorenzo de El Escorial is located outside Madrid. Currently a monastery, it is a historic royal residence of the King of Spain. The complex features a palace, library, gardens, museum, art gallery, and more. Perhaps its most impressive building is the Basilica of San Lorenzo el Real.
The South of France
Wine and romance are synonymous with southern France. With its rolling hills, wineries, chateaus, and historic cities, it's no surprise that the South of France is a timeless favorite for weddings. Très romantique!
Built between 1902 and 1961, Temple Expiatori del Sagrat Cor is situated atop Mount Tibidabo, overlooking the city of Barcelona, Spain. With its Gothic Revival architecture, and impressive location, Sagrat Cor is one of the city's most recognizable churches and landmarks.
Completed in the early 15th century, Luttrellstown Castle is located in the outskirts of Dublin. In 1844 and 1900, Queen Victoria visited the castle. Now part of a 5-star resort, Luttrellstown Castle has hosted luxury weddings and events, including the wedding of former football (soccer) star, David Beckham.
county cork, ireland
A fairy tale location, for a fairy tale wedding! It's almost hard to believe that a magical place like Gougane Barra actually exists. The church (St. Finbarr's Oratory) is situated on a tiny island, in the middle of a lake, which is located in an obscure valley. Gougane Barra has become a popular spot for intimate elopements, for local Irish couples and international couples.
Portugal's capital city, Lisbon, is the oldest city in Western Europe. The city is rich in history, possesses a distinct culture, and enjoys glorious weather. Arguably one of the more underrated European capital cities, Lisbon has recently experienced a significant increase in tourism. Naturally, the city has also become increasingly popular for hosting destination weddings.
Beverly Hills, California, USA
Glamour, fame, and fortune can all be found in Beverly Hills. Gorgeous mansions. Posh hotels. Fancy cars. Luxury shopping. Fine dining. It's all here.
As one of the wealthiest areas in Los Angeles County's Westside, the city of Beverly Hills is home to countless movie stars, celebrities, and more.
Santa Barbara, California, USA
There's a reason why this California coastal city is commonly referred to as "The American Riviera." With its Mediterranean-like climate, Spanish Colonial Revival architecture, dramatic mountains, and sandy beaches, it's easy to see why Santa Barbara is a premier resort town, and one of the most popular wedding locations in the state of California.
Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate
malibu, california, usa
Situated in the Santa Monica Mountains, at an elevation of over 2,000 feet, the Malibu Rocky Oaks Estate is one of the most impressive wedding and event venues in the Los Angeles area. Overlooking Malibu, the Tuscan-inspired villa offers breathtaking panoramic views of the surrounding mountains, and the estate's 37-acre plot (including its 10 acres of vineyards). A popular filming location for film and television, the estate has also established itself as one of the most popular luxury wedding venues in the Los Angeles area.
