Venue of the week – Hylands House, Chelmsford

I love being asked to send calligraphy for styled photoshoots – my lettering has been to some wonderful places. I wish I could be there for every shoot, and especially when the locations are as luxurious as Hylands House!

Ayshea Goldberg had photographed our shoot there, so I asked her to introduce the venue to us:

Hylands House is a neo-classic building in the heart of Essex and set into formal gardens and parkland – the estate is also the setting for the annual V festival. Outside it’s very grand with impressive pillars and a sweeping driveway that looks fab with a classic car outside.

“Inside Hylands House is very opulent and grand with the centrepiece being the banqueting hall.  It’s full of gilt decor and original portraits – and has massive windows that open onto a gorgeous terrace with beautiful views of the park. Couples can marry in the drawing room and then celebrate in the banqueting hall – or for larger wedding parties there is a light and airy pavilion which is perfect for evening parties.

I’ll be featuring the full styled shoot very soon on the English Wedding Blog – watch out for it on our Facebook page!
