Holdenby House is a stunning piece of Victorian architecture set inside huge Grade I listed gardens. The approach up a long and narrow driveway includes a clever little ascent which allows the house to reveal itself as you rise over the crest. The house is massive, and the silhouette of the house captures the eye against spring blue skies. It truly defies belief that a house of such stature is a mere fragment of its former self. By all accounts the original house was a whopping seventy eight thousand square feet, only the arches in the now bull field stand as testament to its previous grandeur.
Only a few weeks after Clark & Lindsey’s epic engagement shoot at Holdenby House, the wedding rolled around, never before has a wedding and DC comics found such harmonious union. We have a groom called Clark, table centres which include comic books and button holes containing Lego figurines of Batman, Wolverine and the likes – fantastic (fun fact, Lego comes from Denmark!) Luck was certainly on side this day, not only did the sun appear exactly when it was supposed to, but even the horses ran in winners just before the ceremony started. One thing I have noticed in recent weddings is the growing trend of guests (lets be honest, the male guests) throwing the entire confetti cone, see if you can spot it, tres amusing it has to be said.
I am truly honoured to be a part of so many intimate moments and amazing emotionally charged days. Have you ever been so nervous you double hand fanned yourself? I’m pretty sure that will be me on my wedding day, but its incredible to be within touching distance of people as they go through such significant moments. Holdenby House is a beautiful venue for wedding photography, I had an amazing time and thank you so much for letting me be there to be a part of it.
