Wedding Photographer: Fawsley Hall: Simon & Nicola

Amy was the wedding photographer at Fawsley Hall, Northamptonshire for Simon & Nicola’s wedding.

From Hedingham Castle in Essex, I headed straight to Northamptonshire to photograph the wedding of Simon & Nicola at the very beautiful Fawsley Hall. A former Royal estate dating back as far as the 7th century and a popular place for Queen Elizabeth I to stay. The view from the front of the Hall is quintessentially English with fields of sheep, oak trees and a stunning little chapel & the Great Hall is jaw-dropping.

St. Mary’s church in Bitteswell was where the ceremony took place; about a 40 minute drive from Fawsley Hall. Guests were in for a treat when we arrived back as a wonderful band were playing and ice-cream was being served.

I must say thanks to Simon’s Best man and ushers who were all a great help to me on the day and well done to Nicola’s Mum and friend Julia for getting Nicola into that incredible dress (which came with a power-point presentation about how to get it on!!) What a dress it was though! Nicola looked stunning. Take a look:

THE dress being done up – what a procedure! Worth every minute.

I shot the group shots full length but kind of like this crop too with a hint of the most wonderful yellow-leafed tree.

The Great Hall was turned around ready for the party and the second brilliant band of the day. So atmospheric.
