Below I explain why they are my favourites and what makes them special for wedding photography.
Just to add I am not on commission, and this is not a paid advert. These are my own opinions based on working as a wedding photographer .at these specific places.
There are so many top Northamptonshire wedding venues out there, it’s hard to know which one is right for you… I hope this post can help.
The Granary at Fawsley – This is my favourite. If you are wanting a relaxed barn style wedding venue in the middle of nowhere, this is the one. Family run with stunning surroundings; this has some great outdoor features for your wedding photography. The sunset location is perfect, and their quirky extras like the drinks horse box look great in photos. Their 5 * service has won them numerous awards and they also have some rooms to sleep your guests.
Kilworth House– A large hotel on the Northampton Leicestershire border, this is my favourite venue for photography. With lovely gardens and views across the rolling hills, they have thought out some great features. Even the smoking hut looks like a roman temple and the corridor floors by the toilets have character. I could take photos here all year and never get bored.
The Barns at Hunsbury Hill – Another beautiful barn style venue which sits just on the edge of Northampton town. I love the fact they close the side blinds in the barn for the ceremony. I know this might sound odd, but for a photographer it’s the little things that help make your photos fantastic. Too much light coming in at an angle can cause blown out highlights and uneven lighting. There’s lots of rustic charm and pretty locations for your wedding photography here, but no rooms to stay over.
Fawsley Hall– You can’t beat this hotel for history, character, and scenery. A stunning period property, with oodles of great photography locations. Rolling fields, lakes, a Tudor Hall, and grand entrance are some of my favourite places. Fawsley sits in the top end bracket price wise but is definitely worth the splurge.
Dodmoor House– A barn conversion with a bridal suite attached. This looks so pretty all lit up at night, which is perfect if you have an Autumn/Winter wedding. It has a cosy feel with plenty of character for a smaller wedding.
Sulgrave Manor – A 16th century Tudor Manor house set in its own landscaped gardens. Full of character and history and a story of George Washington, it’s a romantics dream venue. There are plenty of beautiful locations for your wedding photography.
Plum Park Manor – Just on the outskirts of Towcester this is my most local top Northamptonshire Wedding Venue. A Victorian manor house set in its own grounds; it is another stunning location for wedding photography. Lovely for a sunset and has a beautiful grand staircase which is great for indoor shots. It also has 12 bedrooms for you and your guests to stay the night.
