Hedsor House Wedding Photography
Photographing weddings at Hedsor House
Hedsor House was designed by Sir William Chambers, the architect of London’s fabulous Somerset House. No expense was spared in making this the most fabulous country house residence in the most remarkable elevated location.
During its colourful history, the house also became the home of the Dowager Princess of Wales, mother of George III. Entries in the Dowager’s diary describe how she often entertained the King, Queen Victoria and her children. George III was particularly captivated by Hedsor’s picturesque position high above the River Thames, and especially appreciated its proximity to London and Windsor.
The building was extensively damaged by fire in 1795, and the house that we see now was completed in 1868. Unusually it 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, and it’s now where many of the venue’s events and functions take place.
It’s quite amazing to think you can now get married where Britain’s kings and queens were once entertained! The house has also been used on many occasions for big screen movies and TV productions; the famous names that have been filmed here include Nicole Kidman, Johnny Depp and Maggie Smith to name just a few!
It goes without saying that this is one amazing location for wedding photography, and over the years I’ve been fortunate enough to photograph a number of incredible weddings here. In every direction you look it’s a wedding photographer’s dream setting, you really cannot fault this sensational Buckinghamshire venue. The exteriors and interiors at Hedsor provide the ideal canvas for both my classic and documentary style of wedding photography.
