I was super excited when Amy contacted me via my Facebook page to discuss her upcoming wedding. Rookery Hall is a venue I’d heard good things about but so far didn’t have the opportunity to shoot at, so I was made up when the guys said they wanted to book.
Rookery Hall weddings
Rookery Hall has certainly evolved a lot since it was built in 1816 with the addition of a modern spa and entertainment suites. However the original building still maintains its beautiful character both inside and out.
Amy was able to get ready in the bridal suite in the old building before heading over to the newer part for the wedding ceremony itself. After the ceremony guests were invited back to the old building which is surrounded by beautiful countryside views. Combining the original architecture with the stunning views certainly makes Rookery hall a brilliant venue for wedding photography.
It was all systems go at prep with Amy accompanied by a handful of bridesmaids, hair dresser and make up artists. Whereas Dave and his boys casually rocked up and enjoyed a pre-ceremony beer whilst checking the final details.

After the ceremony we nipped back to the old building for photos and to enjoy ice-cream the coupled provided for everyone. I was kindly offered one and it was delicious! Due to time being a little short we decided to leave Amy and Dave’s portraits until the evening and I’m glad we did as the light was beautifully soft by then.
Rookery Hall is so big with so much space you could spend hours on photos, but thats not what a wedding is about. So we made use of the grounds at the front of the old building for some relaxed portraits the couple and a few shots of the bridal party.
I really enjoyed shooting Amy and Dave’s wedding at Rookery Hall. If you’re planning a wedding please do get in touch to have a chat about your day.
