Winter Wedding Photography At The Elvetham
Elizabeth and Chris’ wedding photography at The Elvetham last November was a date in my 2017 calendar that I’d been looking forward to ever since they booked me as their photographer. It’s a venue that I’ve photographed in the summer before, but never had I photographed a winter wedding at The Elvetham, until now. And it didn’t disappoint! The grand approach and the warmth of the interior make it perfect for a wedding in the middle of winter, when the wind is howling outside. The Elvetham is also great in really practical ways, in that it has ample space indoors for guests to spread out between several rooms, and is able to accommodate your guests who’ve travel from far, and needing to stay overnight.
For me, the day began with Elizabeth getting ready at home, where there was a hive of activity, with family members and the bridal party gearing up for the day ahead. Chris wasn’t left out though, as my assistant photographer was there to capture his movements in the morning, from The Elvetham to church. I tend to shoot most weddings by myself, and I get a strange enjoyment out of all the rushing around, but on a day like this, it was great to have Adam along for the day. We made the most of having two photographers. It means that I can stay longer where the action is, knowing that other parts of the day are covered. This is so important to me, as it’s often in those little in-between moments, like Elizabeth and her dad at home practicing their walk down the aisle, that I might otherwise miss.
