• The Old Palace Hatfield House Wedding, Hertfordshire

‘Our wedding photographs are absolutely stunning, they tell the full story of the day. Thank you for looking after us so well’

Wedding at The Old Palace

The Old Palace at Hatfield House is one of the most historic wedding venues in Hertfordshire.

Once owned by Henry 8th and used as a home for his children. The Old Palace is where Elizabeth 1st is said to have found out she would be Queen in 1558.

For Emma and Alex who have a love of history, The Old Palace was a clear choice of wedding venue.

The Day

The Sun was out in full force for Emma and Alex’s wedding day. Subsequently wedding bouquets had to be stored in the fridge to stop them from wilting. I spent the morning documenting the girls getting ready in St Albans before making my way to Hatfield House to meet with Alex and his Groomsmen.

After the ceremony which was held in the Old Palace. The guests enjoyed the drinks reception in the sunshine of the Old Palace’s the immaculate gardens. Whilst the Banqueting Hall was transformed 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.

I am fortunate to photograph many weddings at Hatfield House. Each one brings with it a uniqueness from the personalities of the couple and their guests.
