Wedding Photography at Shottle Hall

Shottle Hall Wedding Photography – Lauren and Max

As ever we were delighted to offer our wedding photography services for Lauren and Max’s big day. A wedding at Shottle Hall is always a pleasure to photograph. It’s stunning surroundings and ample photography opportunities is endless. Lauren and Max’s wedding was no exception.

Dannah Farm Country House

Lauren’s day started at Dannah Farm Country House. It is a stone’s throw away from Shottle Hall which was ideal as she didn’t have far to travel. Dannah Farm is part of Chatworth’s estate and is still a working farm. The owners have done a fabulous job converting the main Georgian House and surrounding stone buildings into luxurious boutique accommodation. This makes it a suitable place for an overnight stay and for the wedding preparations when Shottle Hall can’t accommodate you.

The Preparations

The morning went by without a hitch. It was all relaxed and calm which was a good start for the day ahead. Lauren’s bridesmaids and  flower girls spent the time with her. One of the flower girls was her daughter which made the day even more special.

The Coach House Marquee Shottle Hall Wedding Ceremony

The weather played a big part for Lauren and Max’s Wedding ceremony as they were hoping to have it outdoors under the gazebo overlooking the stunning countryside. However, the British weather let them down half an hour before the ceremony was going to take place. Luckily Shottle Hall always has a contingency plan for these circumstances. They swapped the outside space for their gorgeous, rustic, ceremony room in the Coach House Marquee. This can accommodate the wedding and guests  if the weather does not permit there to be an outside ceremony. 

All went well and we managed to get beautiful photographs of Lauren and Max around the venue. Believe it or not, the sun shone for the rest of the day right into the evening. We ended with a lovely sunset, silhouetted shot on the hillside and sparklers to finish the day.
