Micklefield Hall Wedding Photography
Micklefield Hall wedding photography
As a wedding photographer, I am spoiled when it comes to the many fantastic wedding venues Hertfordshire has to offer. Being booked to photograph a new (to me) location is always a bonus. So it was a great joy to add Micklefield Hall wedding photographer to my list of honours. Situated 25 miles outside of London, Micklefield Hall is a Georgian manor house located in Hertfordshire. The family-run venue boasts a mixture of spaces including a tithe barn, a temple, gardens and a marquee. The variety of indoor and outdoor areas make it an excellent choice for a couple wanting a selection of backdrops for their wedding photos.

I only have two words to describe the couple that booked me to photograph this summer country house wedding. Super cool. So it came as no surprise to me when I arrived to find they had brought Micklefield Hall into the 21st Century with a host of modern, stylish, and tasteful touches. I couldn’t have ignored the sparkling white Rolls Royce parked outside. This presented a must-have photo opportunity for the groom. No bridal or groom prep images this time. But as any Micklefield Hall wedding photographer will tell you, the bridal suite and “groom’s room” are both great spaces for those all-important getting ready photos. And for actually getting ready too, obviously!

As guests started to fill the estate’s temple area, I remember thinking that the weather was perfect for this outdoor wedding. The red brick temple building stands at the top of a large circular pond, with seating for up to 200 guests placed around the edge. In such a picturesque setting there really is no bad angle. Indeed, every element was just right. Even the blue details of the bride’s dress complimented the groom’s blue suit. The ceremony was full of family involvement leading to many memorable and intimate moments which were a joy to capture. Afterwards, the action moved to the estate gardens after the ceremony where candid, and family shots were the order of the day. My creative portraits were one of the reasons the couple decided to choose me as their Micklefield Hall wedding photographer. So with friends and family entertained, I took the bride and groom off to explore the grounds and capture some unique images.

The “Great Barn” served as the venue for the continuing celebrations. The tithe barn is a listed building; the oldest original beam dates back to 1490! Thanks to sympathetic refurbishment, it provides an authentic, character-filled setting with the necessary modern touches for the perfect wedding reception. Highlights of the reception included the bride serenading her husband before their first dance, some heartfelt words from friends and family, and some serious moves being thrown on the dancefloor as the evening progressed. A jaw-dropping sunset topped off the evening and presented the perfect opportunity for more creative photography at the estate’s “Old Barn”. As the sun dropped below the horizon, a spontaneous hula-hoop session kicked off. What are the chances you’ll find another Micklefield Hall wedding photographer with sunset photos quite like that in their portfolio!? The evening was a true celebration of a wonderful couple. From the youngest to the oldest, everyone played a part and made it a wedding to remember. A huge thanks to Nadia and Hakim for inviting me to be a part of their wedding day.
