Being a Fanhams Hall Wedding Photographer, I was absolutely delighted that Adele & Greg invited me to shoot their wedding. This beautiful, historic venue lies just 1.5km from the centre of Ware & only 45 minutes from Central London. Set in 27 acres, this awe-inspiring Jacobean mansion makes the most perfect venue for a truly romantic wedding.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY AT FANHAMS HALL
Being a Hertfordshire wedding photographer, I love shooting at Fanhams Hall and was spoilt for choice with the many fabulous areas in which to take photos that create life lasting memories.
Adele looked so elegant in her breathtaking, full length wedding dress & Greg looked dapper in his sharp suit. The bridesmaids both wore light coffee colour dresses which gave an elegant and stunning look. The groomsmen wore suits that tied in beautifully with Gregs.
With their ceremony outside and their reception in the Great Hall, Fanhams Hall was an absolutely perfect venue for their special day. Fanhams Hall is a Jacobean mansion full of historical beauty. I personally love the grandeur of the oak panelled walls throughout. Every aspect of the house & garden create the most perfect setting for your wedding photos. I love to combine traditional with documentary photography, which I feel 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.
KIND WORDS FROM THE BRIDE & GROOM
Wonderful experience and brilliant photos ….
From the first time we met Helen at a Wedding fair we knew that she was the ideal photographer for us, such a warm and friendly person. We met at our venue a week before our wedding, this was brilliant as it gave us an idea what to expect on our big day from a photography viewpoint and also walk around the grounds to talk about possible shots and ideas. On the morning of our wedding we had an issue with a supplier but Helen was brilliant so supportive and caring. During the day she was fun to be with and the shots she could are breathtaking, Helen started the day as our wedding photographer but left as Helen our friend the wedding photographer, i could not recommend her high enough.
Greg & Adele
I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Adele & Greg on their wedding day at Fanhams Hall. I was so honoured to capture their big day for them & look forward to being a Fanhams Hall Wedding Photographer again soon.
