Fanhams Hall Wedding Photography

What a wonderful time was had by all at this Fanhams Hall Wedding.  I was absolutely delighted and honoured that Hollie & Nathanael invited me to shoot their special day.  Being able to take Fanhams Hall Wedding Photography was wonderful. This beautiful, historic venue lies just 1.5km from the centre of Ware & only 45 minutes from Central London.  Set on 27 acres, this awe-inspiring Jacobean mansion makes the most perfect venue for a truly romantic wedding.

Surrounded by the beauty of nature with family and friends, create memories that will last a lifetime. The regal and romantic vibe was perfect and exactly what the couple were aiming for.  Such a unique wedding venue to celebrate their big day. With stunning gardens and an outstanding building, this venue provides a truly perfect setting.

No additional travel costs for weddings at this beautiful venue.

Wedding Attire

Hollie looked so stunning in her beautiful, full length, wedding dress from Lucy Hart Bridal. Her bridesmaid wore navy blue which complemented Hollie’s white dress. Nathanael and his groomsmen looked dapper in their sharp suits from Mr Mackys.

Every aspect of the house & gardens create the most perfect setting for your wedding photos. The memories of your special day will be remembered in your hearts forever.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Hollie & Nathanael on their wedding day at Fanhams Hall.  I was so honoured to capture their big day for them & look forward to being a Fanhams Hall Wedding Photographer again soon.

Here is a preview of a selection of photos from their special day.

Fanhams Hall Weddings

Nestled in history, Fanhams Hall, a country house dating back to the 1400s, boasts an enchanting blend of formal gardens and an expansive informal Japanese garden. The charming Japanese Teahouse and picturesque bridges adorning the lake add a touch of romance to the estate.


The Jacobean-style mansion graces a terrace overlooking impeccably manicured grounds. Descending steps lead to a central fountain, where the gentle sound of running water mingles with the fragrance of blooming flowers, creating a truly magical ambiance. Here, amid the beauty of nature, one is transported to a world brimming with love and romance.


The journey into the Fanhams Hall experience commences with a winding tree-lined driveway, unveiling 27 acres of captivating grounds and the historic Jacobean Mansion. Passing through the two-story gatehouse into the courtyard, guests are greeted by the grand entrance of this Grade II listed building, now a hotel and events venue under the Exclusive Group. The oak-panelled Long Gallery, with its grandeur and intimacy, sets the stage for a romantic and timeless wedding.


The Great Hall, adorned with a magnificent Jacobean fireplace, provides a stunning backdrop for the top table. The Minstrels Gallery above is ideal for capturing moments of the entire bridal party during the wedding breakfast. Seating 120 for the wedding breakfast and accommodating 170 for the evening reception, the Jacobean Great Hall is licensed for ceremonies, making it a versatile and perfect space for every facet of your wedding.

Exiting the Great Hall through oak and leaded glass doors, a beautifully carved oak staircase awaits—a regal sight that adds a touch of majesty as the couple glides up or down. The preparation rooms for both the bride and groom, along with the suites, offer a photographer’s dream, featuring oak-paneled walls and expansive stained glass windows.


Fanhams Hall offers a range of captivating ceremony venues, from the licensed Grade II Japanese Teahouse erected in 1900 to the classic Long Gallery. The Gazebo on the lawn and the Lakeside Pavilion also provide options for romantic outdoor ceremonies. With its many choices and the stunning backdrop of a Jacobean Mansion amidst 27 acres of grounds, Fanhams Hall stands as the perfect venue for capturing timeless moments in wedding photography.
