When Jasper and Emma asked my to produce their Hothorpe Hall Woodlands wedding photography for them, I was over the moon! I haven’t photographed a wedding there before. The Woodlands section of Hothorpe is reasonably new. So I’d been looking forward to producing some relaxed portraits and real moments at a new venue!
WOODLAND WEDDING VENUE
Before we made our way over to the wedding venue, we had a church service to enjoy. The weather was cold but the winter sun was shining. Wedding guests made their way into the Church in a small village. Church Stowe overlooks the stunning Northamptonshire countryside. It was a wonderful location. I already had my eye on a few potential photo opportunities once the rings had been exchanged! After a beautiful service, we had a new Mr and mrs Miller!
As excited guests made their way outside, I got to work arranging the family formal photographs. I don’t often post these images on this website. But that does not mean that I don’t provide them for my couples! They are certainly an important part of the wedding memories. However, the photographs I love to take are candid. Documentary wedding photography of friends, family and the bride and groom enjoying the day. So far this beautiful day was providing me with lots of these moments!
UNPOSED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Arriving at The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall, I wasn’t disappointed! What a beautiful location for a wedding reception. Taking my camera swiftly out of my bag, I got to work snapping natural portraits of Jasper and Emma. We had little daylight left, and I wanted to make sure we made the most of it!
I can’t pick a favourite photograph from this day. I have quite a few that I love, and I can’t select one in particular that stands out above the rest! You will have to choose for yourselves below!
Here’s what Mr and Mrs Miller had to say about their day…
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE HOTHORPE HALL WOODLANDS AS YOUR WEDDING VENUE?
We did a lot of research into wedding venues. We knew we wanted to get married in church, and knew that the church would be one that meant something to us as a couple. So the venue had to be somewhere fairly close. We wanted it to be somewhere that we hadn’t been to for another wedding. We went to look at a few venues, and hadn’t got any fixed views about what we wanted, but it became obvious that a lot of the venues were either out of our price range or were churning weddings out and had lost that special feeling.
