A smaller wedding today but at an impressive venue, Great Fosters was Henry VIII’s Hunting Lodge and has been carefully looked after and sensitively restored since its heyday.
Hannah and Gary were married in an elegant wood paneled room with soft autumn sunlight coming through leaded windows – which made life easy for me shooting with available light, less obtrusive too during the ceremony.
The reception was in the painted hall and gardens and once the family photographs had been taken we went off for a few portraits around the formal gardens with a great backdrop of the house itself. Once the evening guests had arrived everyone ate in the Tithe Barn, which, incredibly, dates back to 1390 with a large working fireplace and exposed oak beams. There is a great overall view too, unavailable to the public from high up the Minstrel’s Gallery. I visit Great Fosters several times over the year.
