Fahmina & Morgan’s wedding photography Down Hall Essex. What a stunning day! This was one of those days where you could not ask for better weather! Lucky things! They chose to have their day at the beautiful Down Hall Country House Hotel in Essex, a venue we’ve worked at many times over the years and love even more every time we shoot there. Personally for me the thing that makes a venue great from a photography perspective is not only character but also variation. There are plenty of options for photography both inside and out at Down Hall. The drive way offers loads of views onto the grounds and the house itself but also gives the couple some distance from the wedding from a short time.
Having the whole day at the venue helps to give everyone more time to catch up and enjoy the day. It also meant that we got to have the couple for a good 30 minutes for their photography and so we had a really lovely stroll around the grounds, grabbing some beautiful, intimate moments straight after the ceremony. Fahmina & Morgan always knew they’d like to have an element of fashion in their wedding photography. They’d seen some of our previous work and felt the mix of natural documentary and editorial fashion was exactly what they wanted to compliment their wedding. It’s fair to say that we enjoyed the day almost as much as them! Down Hall Country House Hotel Essex is one of our favourite venues in Essex. It really does have a bit of everything. The gardens are stunning and the house looks amazing from the back of the lawns. Having a sunny day helps too of course but the weather isn’t the be all and end all! People get worried about the weather and I’ve seen brides in tears when the rain has set in on the morning of their wedding. For anyone reading this that’s getting married, don’t worry about the weather! Some of the most amazing weather and with it quality of light has come as a result of a down pour!
