Chicheley Hall wedding photography

Looking for a classic country house wedding venue in Buckinghamshire?

You might have just found it!

Chicheley Hall won my heart the moment my eyes met its perfectly symmetrical facade. It makes me so happy to give my OCD a day off when I photograph a wedding here!

But the formality of the architecture is balanced by unassuming yet elegant interiors, relaxed grounds and a very warm welcome. And the size of the rooms, which are perfect for smaller weddings with up to 60 guests, make a wedding here feel relaxed and intimate.

The Hall dates back to the 1700s and oozes history but it also has every modern luxury you could dream of - including sumptuous bedrooms, great food and reliable wifi for checking the sports results on a Saturday afternoon!

Being tucked away in the countryside, Chicheley Hall is a peaceful retreat, but it’s also super handy for couples planning a church wedding in and around Milton Keynes and Bedford. And it’s especially local for anyone getting married at St. Lawrence’s church next door!

Five reasons you’ll love Chicheley Hall for your wedding photography

  • 1 The sweeping staircase with its stunning chandelier screams for statement photos of your ceremony entrance. And it makes an equally brilliant backdrop for pictures of the two of you.
  • 2 There’s a portrait spot for all styles. Nature-lover? The lake and tree-lined driveway were made for you. Romantic? You’ll go ga-ga for the immaculate gardens filled with lollipop topiary and rambling roses. Rustic fan? Rejoice for the kitchen garden, textured stone walls and the drama of dark barns. Adventurer? The octagonal dovecote, neighbouring fields of long grass and fruit tree orchard will set your heart on fire.
  • 3 Amazing architecture as a stage for both candid and posed inside photos. A wet wedding here will not disappoint.
  • 4 A team that’s always full of fun and smiles but totally professional and who will go out of their way to make sure you have the best time and get the best photos.
  • 5 Graceful windows letting in lots of lovely natural light, bringing gorgeous depth to your photos. From a suit hanging on the wardrobe to flowers on the dinner table and guests laughing at the speeches …. every photo will be radiant.

My experience at Chicheley Hall

Since having the honour of being the first photographer to shoot at Chicheley Hall after it was bought and renovated by The Royal Society in 2009, I’ve captured some fabulous weddings there, including ceremonies at neighbouring St Lawrence’s church. It’s been amazing to see the Hall evolve into the popular and leading wedding venue that it is now.

Satisfy your stylish taste buds with some of these wonderful weddings I’ve captured at Chicheley Hall...

Rebecca and John had their wedding on the Queen's diamond Jubilee weekend, surrounded by their friends and family. So afternoon tea canapes and a traditional British fish 'n chips supper were on the menu! I loved the simple cream colour scheme and luxury details of the day, and I incorporated these to create a really classic, beautiful feel to their relaxed wedding photos.

Oh, the gorgeousness of a springtime wedding at Chicheley Hall! Katherine and Simon got married at All Saints Church in Milton Keynes, then had their reception at Chicheley Hall surrounded by daffodils. A wonderful, relaxed day with simple, elegant styling captured documentary-style.

Helena and Paul got married at St Lawrence Church, followed by a reception at Chicheley Hall. Their day was full of beautiful references to their life together, living and working in Thailand, including custom-made outfits from local Thai silk and helpful Thai phrases on each of the tables.
