Hedsor House Wedding Photography
History of Hedsor House
I’ve photographed several weddings at Hedsor House over the years, and I love the sense of history in this stunning manor house. Sir William Chambers, the architect of London’s fabulous Somerset House, designed the building. He spared no expense in making this a luxurious country house residence in the most remarkable elevated location.
The Dowager Princess of Wales, mother of George III lived at Hedsor House for a time. Entries in the Dowager’s diary describe how she often entertained the King, Queen Victoria and her children. George III loved Hedsor’s picturesque position high above the River Thames, and especially appreciated its proximity to London and Windsor.
Fire damaged the building in 1795, and the house that we see now was completed in 1868. Unusually, the architects featured an all-new Italian styled glass domed hall rather than the traditional open courtyard that was the norm in the day. To this day the Central Hall with its opulent domed ceiling is a stunning focal point of Hedsor House’s grand interiors. In fact, many of the venue’s events and functions take place under this dome.
It’s quite amazing to think you can now get married where Britain’s kings and queens were once entertained! Many big screen movies and TV productions have used the house. For example, Nicole Kidman, Johnny Depp and Maggie Smith have worked here, to name just a few!

As you can see, Hedsor House is one amazing location for wedding photography. Over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph a number of incredible weddings at this Buckinghamshire venue.
The exteriors and interiors at Hedsor provide the ideal canvas for both my classic and documentary style of wedding photography. If you’re planning a Hedsor House wedding I’d love to hear from you, or click here to learn more about hosting your wedding at Hedsor House.
