PLUM PARK WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Amazing Wedding Manor
About the venue
Set in countryside Northamptonshire, not far from Towcester and Silverstone, Plum Park Hotel is a privately owned boutique hotel and event venue. It is a Victorian manor house which has some splendid surroundings and formal gardens. The interior has been restored to its former glory and represents the perfect décor for some amazing wedding photos.
Getting married at Plum Park
The ceremonies that are taken place at Plum Park are happening in the Orangery. This room, with access from the main building and from the outside garden offers you everything you could wish for. And when it comes to photos it is even more that you have wished for. There is a lot of light coming in through the glass ceiling and big side windows so as a Wedding Photographer it is a delight to work there.
When you are going to walk down this aisle you will have all the family and friends admire you. They will shed a tear of joy, maybe and make you fell loved and special. And your best friend and future husband will wait in front eager to marry the love of his life. You will look splendid and everyone will feel special in a room like this on a day like that.
For the reception, on a warm day, I would recommend using the patio outside and the beautiful lawn. Drinks can be served there as there are tables and chairs as well as parasols to protect you from sun, should it be needed (we are still in England).
Then there is a lovely big lawn which gives you the option of organising a few garden parties for the little ones as well as for the big ones. The big ones can at least install the games for the little ones as this groom and his brothers were doing on the wedding day!
The ceremony room known as the Orangery is a great place for photos. However, the back of the room is very dark as it is connected to the manor and the bits towards the front are very lighted considering that it has glass ceiling and glass walls. This is a bit of a challenge for photographers as the settings of the cameras needs to be modified quite quickly to adapt to the amount of light coming in. By shooting at Plum Park before, I know how to overcome the difference in light in order to make all the photos look the same.
Getting ready room/Bridal suite at plum Park
It is not the same thing...the room where the bridal party gets ready is a big room that allows the other suppliers(makeup artist/hair-dresser) to setup and have plenty of room for all their kit/tools. It also allows a lot of light in through the two big windows that can be used as the locations for makeup and hairdressing. Also, one huge mirror would help with the dressing up.
When it comes to the bridal suit at Plum Park, that is a different room that has a very classic Victorian style when it comes to decors and furniture. It is also allowed for the bride to take photos there after the getting ready before the ceremony.
The evening party
All the evening events are happening in the marquis next to the manor. If you have a big wedding, it will all happen there. But if it is a small one there is always the option to have the meal in the main hall inside the manor.
But back to the evening party. The marquis is big enough to accommodate all of your guests. You will also have the cutting of the cake there, the first dance and the party after. There is a designated place for the band to set up and also a bar that can refill your drinks while you take a break from dancing.
