Wedding venues have been on my mind rather a lot recently. I see lots of weddings on blogs where the venue takes a bit of a back seat. Maybe it’s the blogs; maybe it’s the magazines too! But there’s a danger that what we see (or don’t see) in the wedding media can mislead us. Don’t let your magnificent, quirky, charming or historic wedding venue fade into the background on your big day!
Bring out the best of your wedding venue with great photography
I had a little chat about venues with my wedding photographer friend Martin Hambleton. He was involved in a photo shoot at gorgeous Arley Hall in Cheshire with three other fabulous wedding photographers, and we asked them all to share their thoughts on wedding venues as well as some stunning images from inside the stately home.
In his email Martin said, “The venue is tantamount to being a guest at the wedding to me! Couples spend a long time visiting and choosing, and I think they’re done a disservice if the venue isn’t properly used on the day by the photographer. Especially if it’s somewhere as splendid as Arley.”
