U2

Studio Two became home to rock royalty earlier this year when musical legends U2 came to Sunbeam for their feature in major US title the Hollywood reporter.u2
Taking time out from promoting their upcoming album to meet photographer Joe Pugliese they produce some striking imagery of the band around our studios.

The shoot also made use of the Sunbeam facilities outside of the studio setting as well as inside, as can be seen from these head-shots where our grounds make a great backdrop in these eye-catching black and white images.

Arrive in style

Choosing to have your wedding at Sunbeam Studios is choosing to be in an historic building with a rich and exciting history.

How about being submerged further into that history by arriving at your wedding in a unique classic car that was built in the very venue you are getting married in; when what is now Sunbeam Studios, was the Sunbeam Talbot automobile works, one of the UK’s premier car manufacturers.

You can arrive in the car pictured here, a Talbot saloon car manufactured right here in 1934. The vehicle has been completely re-upholstered using renowned British craftsmanship; finished with burgundy-coloured Connolly leather and matching it with Wilton carpeting to return the car to its original standard of luxury and comfort.

110 Years of Excellence at Sunbeam Studios

A dozen pre-war Talbot motor cars with a combined age of over 1000 years returned home on Sunday 8th September to where they were made; our building, Ladbroke Hall.

Our building  was the first purpose built car factory and showroom in the UK, opening its doors in 1903 and impressively this year we celebrated the centenary of the 100 miles in 1 hour World Record, set in 1913 by a car built right here at Sunbeam’s Ladbroke Hall. Through this achievement the driver Percy Lambert became the fastest man ever over this distance – on land, sea, or air, for which he earned the status of celebrity and national hero.

With people like Winston Churchill using the building as his experimental warfare establishment in WW1, the famous Kings visit in 1918, and the long line of motoring heroes such as Percy Lambert’s achievements, our building’s history has certainly set a high bar for us to aim for.

Studio 1 showed off our photographic services with a modern studio photo-shoot of a 1933 Talbot AV105 Super Speed Brooklands Tourer, produced by Sunbeam and photographed by Mitch Payne.
