Beautiful Gardens

One of the most popular locations for Dorfold Hall wedding photography is certainly the gardens. Great care has been taken to ensure that they look stunning year-round. The boarders have been filled with summer flowering plants as well as herbaceous plants which are at their best nearer the end of the year. Flowers and greenery give wedding photographs a delightful backdrop. Contemporary wedding photographers will focus on framing images and using the natural surroundings to fill the background of the picture with colour. Gone are the days in photography where you find a fountain and have a picture taken in front of it. The best wedding photographers will work in a creative and innovative way to capture stunning images.

Lakeside wedding pictures

Another great spot for Dorfold Hall wedding photography is the lake. The lake was remodelled in 1862 to reduce its size making way for the impressive driveway. Since then the lake has been dredged removing tonnes of silt to restore it to its original beauty. Now the lake is crystal clear and a charming place for romantic portraits of the newlyweds. Dorfold Hall also has amazing statues within the grounds. The history and grandeur of the Dorfold is reflected in the impressive figures. Guests will immediately feel that they are somewhere of great history. It won’t just be your wedding photographer snapping away at Dorfold Hall! Inside The Hall there are many impressive features which would translate into gorgeous wedding images. From the Jacobean staircase to the stunning ceiling mouldings there is so much to add character to wedding photos. In the event of rain your wedding photographs would not be ruined. Although photographing indoors is more difficult, especially in historic buildings, choosing an experienced wedding photographer will ensure your photographs are not compromised.

The royal treatment

At the Hall guests are made to feel completely at home. The night before the big day you can have an intimate dinner. The grand dining room can seat up to 20 of your nearest and dearest. Pre dinner drinks are held in the stately drawing room which has stunning moulded ceilings. For couples who would like this moment to be captured we can create a bespoke wedding photography package. The King James I bridal suite is sure to give weddings an extravagant flair too. Designed for royalty in the 1620s this room has been fitted with wood panelling and moulded plasterwork. The opulent room adds that extra special touch, splendid enough for King James I.
