Being at The Orangery at Settrington as a wedding photographer was wonderful! I loved the outdoor spaces and options for portraits throughout the day. The on-site church is a bonus for those who don’t want to involve lots of travelling on the dya.

A stone throw away from Settrington House is a beautiful on-site cottage which is perfect for Bridal Prep. Heather got ready here amongst her friends who helped with her hair and make up. We were lucky to have some time for some photographs of the bridesmaids before the ceremony as well.

The ceremony of Heather and Godwin was so wonderful; the room was full of love and support. We were even treated to two musicians who were close friends playing music throughout intervals which made it that bit more personal.

The Orangery at Settrington has some beautiful unique characteristics; including the beautiful painted wall! Queens Flowers UK did a great job of styling the room with their beautiful bouquets too.

We did have some rain on the wedding day; but we worked around it and got most of the portraits done before the heavens opened! It is important to use good weather tactically. Working at The Orangery at Settrington as a wedding photographer is not a problem in rain or shine as the venue has lots of space and light.

By golden hour the Orangery at Settrington was brought to life with golden streaks throughout the grounds which were perfect for some evening portraits of Heather and Godwin. Golden hour is the perfect opportunity for some more relaxed portraits with a softer light.
