Weddings at Hothorpe Hall | Katherine + Chris

A Woodlands Wedding

Weddings at Hothorpe Hall are just the best! Katherine and Chris had their wedding at the beautiful Woodlands venue. Nestled in the woods it was perfect for Katherine and Chris both being very sporty ‘outdoors’ people. They both wanted a wedding venue that reflected their love of the country side and of course Hothorpe fits that bill perfectly!

I met Katherine for the final touches of bride preparation and she was a tiny bit excited! There was such a buzz in the room with a couple of little bridesmaids looking particularly beautiful in their dresses. It was a very blustery, rainy day, I was completely blown away by how this didn’t faze anyone.. even the registrars who were more than happy to conduct the ceremony in the woods!

The wedding was a wonderful heady mixture of umbrellas, laughter, welly boots and well… a great deal of happiness to be honest. We had a really good yomp around the woods for their wedding portraits making the best of the woodland background, you would never know that Katherine wore her wellie boots for the duration of the portraits.. well hidden under her dress! Katherine and Chris have some wonderful family and friends, it was such a warming wedding, they both clearly belonged to each other.

I did not stay all day for Katherine and Chris but left just before wedding breakfast, Hothorpe really do ‘Woodland’ well! Katherine and Chris couldn’t have had a more fitting venue.

“Kyra at Firetree photographed our wedding a month ago at a beautiful woodland venue. Despite it raining all day, Kyra produced some amazing outdoor & indoor shots for us that really captured the essence of the day…that we will treasure forever. A perfect balance of being professional yet personable…capturing the natural shots that we wanted. Would highly recommend!” – Katherine & Chris
