Location, Location, Location
Or rather – venue, venue, venue!
I love shooting weddings at new venues, it’s always great to spend time finding the best spots and the best light for photos. But I also love returning to venues I’ve shot before, especially these – my Top Three Wedding Venues.
“Go the whole hog. Make sure everything you do is so completely crazy it’s unbelievable” is the Roald
If you dream of getting married surrounded by nature then I thoroughly recommend these guys. Forget traditional wedding protocol and design a day just for you – from a hog roast to a singalong, you can use the space in so many ways (all of which will be so. much. fun!)
The Railway barn
The Railway Barn is set in the grounds of the New Hall Vineyard, close to Maldon in Essex.
The barn itself is the absolute dream location for a relaxed and warm-hearted wedding, with its original features creating a really authentic look & feel. Its exposed brickwork & wooden beams make a perfectly rustic backdrop for photos – and with space for up to 150
The Old parish rooms
If it’s an intimate wedding you’re after then The Old Parish Rooms is my recommendation! With space for 50 wedding guests and up to 100 for a non-seated party, there’s something about the layout of this venue that really encourages a friendly and happy atmosphere.
This beautiful nineteenth-century building (originally built as a schoolhouse) has vintage charm, while feeling clean & modern inside. You can really showcase your personal style in this venue and the natural light is every photographer’s dream!
So there you have it, my Top 3 wedding venues!
I still have some venues on my wish list that I would LOVE to shoot – hopefully I’ll be able to bring you guys images from those soon!
