A relaxed, intimate wedding day at the stunning Scampston Hall on the blog today. I’ve photographed at Scampston Hall about 3 years ago on a bridal fashion shoot, but Gemma and Simon’s wedding was my first at the hall and I was really looking forward to photographing there again. Being in August we were expecting there to be sunshine from start to finish, but sadly with the unpredictability of the English weather we saw just a fleeting glimpse of blue sky all day, and instead we were treated to heavy downpours and high winds! The whole day took place at Scampston, with Gemma getting ready in one of the traditionally decorated bedrooms, and the ceremony taking place in the drawing room. The hall is a 17th century stately home, and has been owned by the Legard family for hundreds of years. It really is one of the most beautiful venues that I’ve been to, the grounds seem to stretch for miles and there are so so many amazing locations to take brides and grooms. I had planned a route to take Gemma and Simon on to make the most of the gardens but minutes before the ceremony the heavens opened and guests that had gathered in the marquee had to hot foot it over to the hall ready for Gemma to make her entrance! Amazingly, after the ceremony the rain blew over and we had exactly 2 hours of dry weather and we took a walk to the walled gardens and then to the Palladian Bridge at the end of the lake. The whole day was such a relaxed and fun wedding to photograph, an ace couple, and very fun families and friends, I’m looking forward to photographing at Scampston Hall again in the new year! I’m very pleased to be a recommended photographer at Scampston Hall, please get in touch if you are looking for a photographer for your wedding there.
