I’m an experienced and professional photographer with lots of ideas and enthusiasm for stunning Ashridge house wedding photos. Please do get in touch and we can talk more about your plans.
Grade I Listed Country House in Berkhamsted
Set in 190 acres of landscaped gardens, an Ashridge House wedding photographer is spoilt for choice when it comes to backdrops for your portraits as newlyweds. The gothic architecture and turreted façade really make a jaw-dropping first impression as Ashridge House comes into view. Perhaps the most impressive part of Ashridge House history is the fact that it was once home to Henry VIII and his daughter Princess Elizabeth I. There is even an oak tree in the imposing woodland that was planted by Princess Victoria when she was just four years old.
Ashridge House Weddings PHOTOGRAPHY
With a long history of lavish parties hosting royalty, prime ministers, and famous artists and writers; the five-star service continues at Ashridge House. The staff are accommodating to any requests and go the extra mile to make dreams for your wedding a reality.
Nine elegant, interconnecting function rooms provide flexibility for celebrations of any size or style. From elaborate Italianate plasterwork to Art Deco and Neo Gothic features, luxury and elegance can be found in every room. If you are looking for a majestic dining room you’ll be in awe of The Repton Hall, which was originally a conservatory connecting the main house with the chapel. A blessing in the chapel can be added to complete a traditional ceremony.
Wedding PHOTOS at Ashridge House
The Main Hall features an incredible cantilevered staircase, perfect for making a fairytale entrance to your wedding ceremony. This iconic feature of the venue is irresistible to an Ashridge House Wedding Photographer and is one of the most popular locations for evening portraits.
The Sitting Room in the east wing is the ideal setting for bridal preparation. Capturing bridal portraits in the natural light from the large windows highlights every luxurious detail of a bride on her wedding day.
Group portraits with your guests on the terrace allow me to include views of the picturesque countryside and formal gardens. I’ll also wander with you through the gardens, photographing your first walk together as newlyweds amongst the trees and flowers in the grounds of Ashridge House.
Ashridge House Gardens
The formal gardens can also be used for outdoor ceremonies and drinks receptions. The gardens are breath-taking in full bloom during the summer months, but are equally impressive year-round with vast woodlands giving a vibrant autumnal display.
Surrounded by National Trust woodlands, Ashridge House has extensive gardens, designed by Humphrey Repton. He created no less than 15 different styles of garden for Ashridge House, including lawns, flower gardens, a rosary and a grotto.
The Italian Garden was added by Lady Marian Alford in 1849. She also created an arboretum, rhododendron walk, a formal moat and even a skating pond. Your wedding guests can play giant Jenga or croquet on the south lawn and soak up the atmosphere and history. I’ll document the fun and laughter in my unobtrusive documentary style, so you can look back on those moments forever.
