WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT DOWN HALL
Being a Down Hall Wedding Photographer, I was absolutely delighted that Peggy and Stuart invited me to photograph their engagement shoot and wedding. This beautiful, historic venue lies within the County of Essex, bordering Hertfordshire. Set in 110 acres of woodland, parkland and beautiful gardens, this awe-inspiring Victorian Country House makes the most perfect venue for a truly romantic wedding.
Shooting at Down Hall is a pure delight and I’m always spoilt for choice with the many fabulous areas in which to take photos that create life lasting memories.
What they wore
Peggy looked so elegant in her breathtaking, full length Mori Lee wedding dress from London Bride UK with the longest train I have ever seen. Stuart looked dapper in his sharp suit from Dapper Chaps Formal Wear. The bridesmaids were Peggys best friend and her niece, who wore a light purple and white. The groomsmen wore suits that tied in beautifully with Stuarts.
Why Down Hall?
Down Hall was an absolutely perfect venue for their special day, especially as Down Hall is a Victorian Country House full of historical beauty. The grandeur of the interior coupled with the gardens create the most perfect setting for your wedding photos. Combining traditional with documentary photography, creates a well rounded selection of photos that will ensure the memories of your special day will be remembered in your hearts forever.
No additional travel costs for weddings at this beautiful venue.

PERFECT HISTORIC VENUE
Due to Anglo Saxon records, the manor of Down Hall was in existence during the reign of Edward the Confessor (1042-1066) . From these records it was written that Down Hall was a medieval manor, considered ancient at the time. Down Hall was most likely in existence during the 10th century. Hatfield fell into the possession of William the Conqueror after the battle of Hastings in 1066. The history of Down Hall is well worth looking in to.
