Hatfield House, one of the finest wedding venues in Hertfordshire, is always a pleasure to photograph at and results in amazing Hatfield House Wedding Photography. Whether it's the sheer elegance of the 15th Century 'Old Palace', the beautiful gardens or the contemporary Riding School, as a venue it has something to offer everyone. It was once the favourite childhood home of Elizabeth I, and its under one of the estate's oak trees that it's said that she was told she was Queen following the death of Queen Mary in 1558.
As one of Hatfield House's recommended photographers, I'm lucky enough to photograph several weddings there a year. It's such a versatile venue though that every wedding I've photographed there has it's own unique feel to the photography. Being a documentary wedding photographer, my coverage is determined by the guests - where and when they move around the venue - and the light. This approach always ends up with the couples getting lots of natural, unposed photographs that they, and their family will love.
Take a look at one of these other great weddings I've photographed at Hatfield House recently. You'll be able to see how consistent my documentary photography is at this venue. It's an ideal approach for couples who want the best photography and care more about spending quality time with their family and friends than spending half the wedding day posing for a photographer.
I shoot around 40 weddings a year across the UK and Europe, and regularly book popular days up to 18 months in advance. If you like this documentary style of natural wedding photography be sure to check my availability now - make sure you get the wedding photography you deserve.
Here's what Julia and Dayalan had to say about their recent Hatfield House wedding photography:
“Professional from start to finish, the photos were among the very best we’ve seen for any wedding. Paul was so polite, unobtrusive, understanding and efficient on the day and he captured it all perfectly. A high standard of photography and the customer service before and afterwards was outstanding too. Highly recommend him and will be recommending him to all others who would be interested.”
It was a great wedding to photograph, starting with Julia's preparations at the K West Spa Hotel in London before an energetic and thoroughly enjoyable wedding ceremony at Kensington Temple. The wedding party then travelled up to Hatfield House for the wedding reception. You can watch the video highlight slideshow above, or check out some of the stills below.
