Bisham Abbey Wedding Photography

History of Bisham Abbey

Bisham Abbey near Marlow dates back to the 1260s, built for soldier-monks called the Knights Templar.

Queen Elizabeth I spent a number of years imprisoned here during Bloody Mary’s reign.

Many say this is the most haunted house in Berkshire. One of the more active paranormal residents of Bisham Abbey is in fact believed to be that of Lady Elizabeth Hoby, who in a tragic accident killed her son William. Her phantom has been seen since the early 1600s wandering the grounds.

It now belongs to the National Sports Council, and the England football team trains here.

Photographing weddings at Bisham Abbey

On a far more cheery note, Bisham Abbey now hosts wedding ceremonies and receptions. The lovely riverside gardens provide fabulous wedding photography opportunities.

The abbey has so many dramatic backdrops. For example, its colourful gardens and dramatic interiors are always an absolute pleasure to photograph. Oak panelling and high ceilings are a dream for my style of wedding photography! I adore all the huge leaded windows, the arched doorways, and the quirkiness of this charming old venue.

Obviously the other big wow factor is the abbey’s riverside location!  Watching the world go by from the grounds is so relaxing for your guests, and it’s spectacular for my photographs of your wedding day.
