The official photographers on the day will be Ede & Ravenscroft and their studios will be set up in the Crown & Mitre Hotel for individual and family/group photographs.

Booking your photographs

We recommend that you book your photographs no later than 10 days prior to your ceremony. You can make a booking on the Ede & Ravenscroft website.

Information about the different photograph packs available and how to order are in the Ede & Ravenscroft flyer and online.

Ede & Ravenscroft also supply your gowns, so you can book your photographs at the same time as ordering your gown. If you choose to book your photographs later, you can log-in to add your photography order from their website.

Photography location

The photography studios are in the Crown & Mitre Hotel. If you have pre-booked your photos you should you should make your way to the Edwardian Room, 1st floor, Crown & Mitre Hotel.

If you are booking photographs on the day you should make your way to the sales desk and photographic studios situated in the Supper Room (accessible by a staircase only *). 

Important: All family shots (both pre-paid and bookings on the day) will be taken in the Supper Room.

Unless you are having a family photograph it would be helpful if graduands only accessed the photographic studios. This will avoid congestion and speed up the service for you on the day. 

* The Supper Room is located on the lower ground floor and is accessible only by stairs. If this causes you any difficulties please go directly to the Edwardian Room.

Photography inside the Cathedral

We have been granted special permission for our official photographers to be present in the Cathedral. They will take award presentation photographs of each graduand as you shake hands with the Presiding Officer. These photographs will be available for purchase a few weeks following your ceremony date at http://www.edeandravenscroft.com/:
