Hampton Court House Wedding Photography

An Historic Surrey Wedding Venue

Wedding Photographer at Hampton Court House Near Kingston


Hampton Court House - Wedding Portrait in front of Ornate Fireplace

The grand hall at Hampton Court House. Wedding Ceremonies are held here and afterwards it provides a splendid backdrop for some portraits of the newly-weds.

When I first photographed a wedding at Hampton Court House for Bozenka and Greg’s wedding, I was blown away.  The venue seemed perfect for wedding photography – the 18th century architecture, the setting but most of all the gorgeous light spilling in through the French windows off Bushy Park.  Light is paramount to all photography and is the first thing I look for.  Hampton Court House is one venue that has beautifully diffused light coming in from all sides – especially in the grand hallway.  This is where the wedding ceremonies are held and it means that photographers can shoot weddings with a minimum of artificial light.

The moment I saw Bo and her father pull up outside in her hired Rolls Royce and enter the venue through the large front doors, I knew it would be a fantastic day.

Also important for any wedding photographer is the ability to move around discretely and unhindered.  Hampton Court House provides this ability in spades and the large space meant I could photograph the couple’s marriage ceremony from all angles and utilise the light well to create very pleasing images indeed.

The venue is licensed for civil marriage ceremonies and civil partnerships by the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames.  The Richmond Registrars are very relaxed about wedding photography and even allow the signing of the register to be photographed.

Hampton Court House - Wedding Gathering Outside with White Rolls Royce

I love overview shots of the goings on at weddings. This is just before the Rolls Royce left the wedding.

After the ceremony, we took time to take many beautiful portraits of the newly-weds and the house provided much scope for this.  Around every corner there was a new photo opportunity: An attractive window here, an old doorway there.  Period furniture which we were free to use as we wished.  Even a grand piano in a well-lit alcove.

Wedding breakfasts are held in Hampton Court House’s ballroom, with seating capacity for up to 150.  The ballroom has a glass skylight ceiling – a photographer’s dream.  It meant I could shoot far later into the summer evening without the use of flash light.  The disco was set up in the conservatory (another glass-ceiling!) located just off the ballroom.  It looks out onto the gardens and lake and with the summer sunshine lighting up their first dance, any wedding couple couldn’t wish for a better day.

The hall gives an ornate backdrop as the newly-weds walk back down the aisle after their ceremony.

I have now photographed several weddings at Hampton Court House and here some favourite images from those wedding days:

The wedding ceremony table and guests all face the large hall windows which lets through beautiful light for portraits like this.
