Markington Hall Wedding Photographer

Claire + James held their wedding celebration at Markington Hall, with the ceremony held in a woodland glen with origami swans and fairy lighting decorating the tree’s all around them, and then held their reception within the grounds and a large marquee.

The couple booked me to cover their ceremony through till the early evening and so I arrived approximately 1 hour before things began in order to meet a few of the guests as they turned up and also to get an idea of the layout for the festivities. 

I was well situated for the arrival of both the bride and groom as they both arrived independently of each other with their respective families in tow. As the venue was so open I had lots of opportunities to capture a variety of images from the ceremony that included the environment. The couple also held a tea ceremony, which are always great for getting photo’s of groups of family members together whilst they are distracted from the lens.

Afterwards I mingled amongst a very relaxed reception and did a few family shots with the couple and a few portraits before everyone was seated for the meal and speeches. In the early evening, the guest enjoyed the grounds of the venue and the fine weather of early summer before a Ceilidh band kicked off the evening entertainment and I dodged swinging guests as they got more confused by the string of instructions that was fed to them

I received this feedback from Claire + James when they received their photos:

“Many thanks for getting the photos ready for us so quickly! We loved watching the slide show and flicking through them at night. They really capture the emotion of the day, which is really super. Exactly what we wanted with the style of shots. “
