As a professional wedding photographer in Leicester, Halstead House is up there as one of my favorite wedding venues in Leicestershire, especially for the vintage wedding photography look that may clients ask for, and which I personally love! But before I get carried away with Halstead, let me tell you about the rest of Hannah & Ash’s wedding ceremony, which took place in Ratcliffe on the Wreak, Leicestershire. I first met Hannah and the girls at her parent’s house, which is literally just around the corner from the church – a bonus, when walking in high heels! I love taking these pre-ceremony shots, as you can feel the excitement and nerves ebbing from everyone, and Hannah and her bridesmaids were having a laugh too boot. We walked to meet the vicar and then proceeded in to the church, where Ash was waiting – looking impressively calm! The church itself is beautiful, boasting glorious, huge stained glass windows and a solemn, but peaceful, setting.
After the ceremony we moved on to Halstead House and took lots of couple photographs whilst going on a short stroll of the grounds, which feature a lily pond, cobbled barn and countryside views – clearly, vintage wedding photographer heaven!! All in all the images are a contemporary mix of documentary and vintage wedding photography, all taken in lovely Leicestershire!!
