Kelmarsh Hall wedding photography
Your elegant home away from home is calling
When I’m shooting a wedding at Kelmarsh Hall, one of my favourite moments of the day is when everyone has sat down for dinner and I down tools for a moment.
I sink into one of their huge, squishy sofas cleverly placed in front of the crackling fire, rest my head back and soak in the delicate plasterwork in the ceiling of the Great Hall. It’s like spending time at a beloved family member’s house … if that family member had the most incredible home you’ve ever seen.
Kelmarsh Hall is one of Northamptonshire’s hidden gems and is the ultimate venue for unique wedding photography.
Five reasons you’ll love Kelmarsh Hall for your wedding photography
My experience at Kelmarsh Hall
Kelmarsh Hall is one of the first Northamptonshire wedding venues that I photographed at, and it’s been a firm favourite ever since! I’m very grateful to have been on their list of recommended suppliers for what feels like a lifetime.
I’m also thrilled to have collaborated with Kelmarsh many times, photographing their gardens through the seasons and covering the various events they hold. I was incredibly honoured to be one of the first to see their ‘below-stairs’ renovation and take photos for the launch of that too!
True love stories
Want to take a looksie at the highlights from a few of the weddings I’ve shot at Kelmarsh Hall? Find your inspiration below!
Katie & Tom
Katie and Tom had a classic church ceremony at St Katharine's in Houghton on the Hill before heading in a vintage wedding car to Kelmarsh Hall for a relaxed reception. My favourite bit? Food bank donations instead of favours. So thoughtful.
Fiona & Will
Fiona and Will's wedding was full of the joys of spring. Colourful, fun, relaxed ... and that's just the flowers. A family friend (handily also a registrar) led their ceremony, which was followed by lawn games in the sun. All topped off with a gorgeous golden hour and so much happiness.
Kerry & James
Kerry and James had an early autumn wedding. Kerry got ready at Church Farm Lodge in Harrington while James enjoyed a pre-wedding pint at The Stag in Maidwell. They had a civil ceremony followed by a relaxed reception and dinner. Definitely check out the flowers in this one!

Elegant and earth-friendly
This shoot took its inspiration from Kelmarsh Hall's most famous owner, Nancy Lancaster. So you can expect to find elegant but relaxed and undone wedding styling ideas. And whilst luxurious, everything was created as mindfully as possible.
Classically romantic burgundy & blush
Does any flower symbolise love more than a red rose? But it's not just for Valentine's Day. A masterclass in creating layers and tactile texture, this shoot shows how a bold red can be transformed into something pretty for any season with pale pink and glamorous gold.
Pale and interesting
A Spring/Summer edit - created in the autumn! Proving that you can have a light and airy look in the typically darker months. See a ceremony and banquet-style intimate dinner set-up in the Saloon. And a large dinner set-up in the ballroom.
Candle-lit and cosy
After a wintery or festive feel without the usual glitz? This feature is for you! Think rich reds, deep greens, all the berries, tumbling ivy, classic candelabra, bold stationery, mirrored accents reflecting the candlelight ... This look is a wonderful combination of tradition and nature.
Inspired by Bridgerton, this editorial is full of regency blue details. There's an outdoor dinner table and wedding cake inspiration, but if that's not your thing, it'd work just as beautifully indoors. Look out for the handwritten calligraphy quotes on the flower ribbons!
