Claire and Dale chose to have their pre-wedding session at their wedding venue, Bagden Hall Hotel.
When they initially booked the venue for their day Claire and Dale fell in love with the willow tree by the lake. We knew we had to incorporate this into their images, and worked together to create something that matched their vision. We were looking for a romantic style, while capturing the fun and joy of Claire and Dale’s relationship.
After a stroll around the grounds together and talking about all the final details of their day, the wedding couldn’t come quickly enough!
With 40 acres of grounds Bagden Hall offers endless opportunities for perfect wedding photographs. The lake and lakeside lodge along with the views make this Victorian country house stand out even more. Originally Bagden Hall was built by Charles Norton. He ran weaving mills, and by building his home on top of a hill he was able to look out across his business and be above the grime that came with the mills. During the pre-wedding session at Bagden Hall it was clear that there would be a beautiful backdrop no matter where we went.
