Down Hall Hotel and Spa Winter wedding sparklers

I photographed Rich and Jenna’s wedding at Down Hall at the back end of December, was always going going to be a fab wedding this, superb couple with fab friends and family to match! Great styling from the gents suits, the dresses, details and topped off with a dash of Christmas! Easily the biggest Christmas tree I’ve seen at Down Hall, in fact they had a fair few Christmas trees around the hotel, looked amazing!

I started in the morning for some preparation photos where Jenna and the bridesmaids were having hair and make-up done, something thats works extremely well at Down Hall is that the Groomsmen can also get ready at the venue in the ‘west wing’, makes it easy for me to capture a bit of groom prep too!

Whilst the weather was typically wet outside we had the use of the prior suite for family group photos, keeping everyone dry! Jenna and Rich didn’t get off so lightly though, not that they minded! We were able to get outside for some portraits of them both which was well worth it and they only got a light shower! During this time the guests were all keeping warm whilst enjoying drinks and canopies!!

Fantastic speeches followed the wedding breakfast and they had Lovelight providing the evening entertainment who once again put on an amazing party, these guys really know their stuff, the atmosphere they create is something else!

We had sparklers too where everyone got the chance to cool down outside, we really made the most of having a winter wedding and they both were a pleasure to photograph, really put their hearts in to it!

Thanks so much for having me Jenna and Rich and also Marie and the team at Down Hall who once again put on an amazing wedding! As a recommended photographer for Down Hall I’m very lucky to be able to photograph at this venue frequently and look forward to returning soon!

On with some highlights from the day!
