Barton Hall Hotel

Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot

Friday, December 16th, 2016

It turned out to be the most foggy day of the year so far, but actually I like it! Here are my favourites from Vanessa & Nick’s Pre Shoot.

I have been lucky enough to photograph weddings at Barton Hall on a few occasions now, and loved the difference the fog made to the grounds during the pre wedding shoot!

It was important to capture Vanessa and Nick looking comfortable on camera, especially as they had mentioned how much they don’t like having their photo taken! And that didn’t take long at all as they are so relaxed as a couple so we chatted and joked all the way through. Take a look at their pre shoot photos to see for yourself…

I’m already looking forward to being back at Barton Hall in March to photograph their Wedding Day!

Sheridan & Matthew’s Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot

Tuesday, April 5th, 2016

On Saturday it was Sheridan & Matthew’s Pre-Wedding Photo Shoot at Barton Hall Hotel, Kettering Northamptonshire.

This year I am lucky enough to have three weddings I will be photographing at Barton Hall Hotel, Northamptonshire which will all be unique in their own way. This Grade two listed building is well known for the striking orangery to the rear of the hall which is where most people hold their ceremony and drinks reception.

This was a great chance to talk through some of the details of the couples big day and how they will be making the most of the venue for their wedding photography.

Sheridan and Matthew shared that they prefer more natural photos rather than anything too staged, so it was my job to get them relaxed in front of the camera so I could capture them look comfortable and happy together.

The most important thing for me when shooting multiple weddings at the same venue is to make sure the photography is individual to each couple, especially during the pre-shoots before the couple have put their stamp on the venue. So all though a few of the same areas around the hall are used, its all about adding new ideas to keep the photography fresh.

Pre-Wedding Shoots are a great way to run through any photo ideas ahead of your big day. It is also a chance for me to see how you are in front of the camera, what your comfortable with and what comes naturally to you. If you or your partner are feeling nervous at the thought of having your photo taken it will help with nerves as you will see I work in a relaxed way.

Pre-Wedding Shoots are included in all of my Wedding Photography packages but are still optional.
