Hampton Court Weddings
The Castle was originally a Wedding Gift from Henry IV to his yeoman of the Robes, Sir Roland Leinthall, following his bravery at The Battle of Agincourt in 1415. From the first stones laid by Sir Roland Leinthall, following his marriage to Margaret Fitzalan, through to the entwined cipher of Sir Thomas Coningsby and his wife (C16th) which can still be seen in the Castle windows, devotion runs deep and can be seen all around. In Victorian times, Hampton Court Castle was home to the famous Arkwright (Spinning Jenny) family for 100 years (1812-1912), Johnny, one of the 12 Arkwright children born here at Hampton Court Castle, wrote to his fiancé “I have packed your roses and kissed every petal” (see Johnny’s 1866 Wedding Photo inside the back cover)
Over the years I covered a number of weddings at Hampton Court. I particularly love the gardens, especially the water gardens and the maze! Indoors there is plenty of space should the skies open. One thing that really sticks in my mind is the corridor of knights in armor! When walking through the main gate at the front, you find yourself in a courtyard. This area is good for outdoor ceremonies, if the weather is good. If not there is plenty of room inside.
My style of photography is journalistic, relaxed, natural, fun, telling the full story of you’re wedding. If you are looking to get married at Hampton Court and you need a wedding photographer then feel free to view my website and contact me to discuss your wedding requirements.
