In advance of the Hockwold Hall Wedding Fair on 29th January 2023 (where we will be exhibiting) we thought we would refresh our guide to Hockwold Hall as a venue. We have been a recommended supplier at HH for many years:-
The problem is we have shot so many weddings at HH over the years, and they've all been brilliant, its so difficult to single one out so we thought we would go for a recent (July 2022) wedding.
HH is one of our favourite venues. Richard and Marie are the current owners of Hockwold Hall. Hockwold Hall is a former royal residence - the godson of Queen Victoria once owned it.
The venue mixes the traditional hall with the marquee and has many outdoor locations, gardens, orchards etc..., which make for fantastic images.

We always make sure you have some "alone time" to let everything sink in
With most of our couples we begin the day with Bridal prep. Our aim is to tell the story of the day, in pictures, from the preparations to the first dance as a married couple.
Groom Prep - not always a feature BUT if there is an opportunity we'll take it.
When you are getting ready in the same location we'll also make sure there are some Groom prep shots too (if you want them)!
A little time for reflection.

The ceremony and reception were all held at Hockwold.
The outdoor ceremony, in the especially set out garden, in the summer is always a favourite.
After the ceremony - Drinks on the Terrace.
Afterwards drinks and canopies were served. It's a great time for us to get some candid photos of guests relaxing with each other. Then we got everyone out for our signature drone shot (below)! What a great memory our drone shot provides. Everyone who is at the wedding is on this shot.

The Wedding Breakfast and Speeches!
The new MR & MRS are announced into the marquee.
The couple had organised the Silver Service Singing Waiters as a surprise for their guests. This is Scott who we've worked with before at Keeley and James wedding in October 2021. It was great to see him again.
If you would like to see more of Scott and the Silver Service Singing Waiters then head over to watch the long version of Keeley and James wedding video on our YouTube channel:
Scott seems to be saying "Gotcha"
The groom enjoyed the entertainment!
Some alone time.
So many locations to choose from. This is the drive leading up to HH.
We love "golden hour" shots at this time of year.
