Robert Cecil, the Chief Minister to Elizabeth 1st built Hatfield House which adjoins the site of The Old Palace in 1611. Hatfield house remained in the Cecil family for 400 years, and today is the home of the 7th Marquees and Marchioness of Salisbury.
The external gardens of Hatfield House are just as stunning as the Old Palace’s interior, making it a perfect wedding venue whatever the weather. Emma and Alex’s beautiful summers day wedding meant guests enjoyed their drinks reception in the immaculate Old Palace gardens, allowing the tables to be set within The Old Palace ready for the wedding breakfast.
Emma & Alex’s guests had travelled from all over the world to share their wedding day with them. On the dancefloor, they celebrated with their own unique wedding customs, showering Emma and Alex with money. As for other guests, the wedding reception custom of dancing until you can dance no more was good enough.
As many times, as I may be fortunate enough to photograph weddings at Hatfield House, each one brings with it a uniqueness from the personalities of the couple and their guests, that that makes photographing weddings at Hatfield House such a delight.
Wedding ceremony and reception held at:
The Old Palace, Hatfield House, Great North Road, Hatfield, Herts, AL9 5HX.
