Richard and Mitzaki live in London, but have family and friends back home in Northampton. They chose the Guildhall to celebrate their Marriage. The couple and myself met for the first time at a local hotel, to discuss the day in more depth, and for me to learn their dreams of what they wanted from their wedding day! They seemed very relaxed about it all and were very happy with the photography prices for the wedding.
The Guildhall Northampton, boasts venues to accommodate small intimate groups, or larger receptions of up to 200 guests. The wedding venue include the magnificent Great Hall, and a more intimate Court Room if preferred. Either will provide for an amazing backdrop for your wedding. Access to most areas of the building is included, even if you are booking for a ceremony only.
Mitzaki arrived in style in a Sheerline vintage car with a very smart uniformed chauffer at the wheel. The Bride wore a beautiful ivory wedding dress. She was attended by 3 bridesmaids dressed in striking blue dresses, with the same colour theme running through the bouquets, and Wedding Cake.
The couple had use of pretty much the whole building, which gave us some fabulous backdrops to shoot their images. The architecture of the Guildhall is stunning. It was an intimate service with close family and friends in attendance.
Mitzaki was given away by her Mother. Richard’s Best Man was his Brother. I was very impressed with the facilities at the Guildhall, the ceremony room is very grand. It’s a very friendly place to attend. We were looked after very well.
The couple preferred natural candid shots, with a few formals for family and group shots. The building is quite dark. Photographers please be prepared to cover low light photography. Ensure that you’re fully equipped. I used the natural light available for all of the images captured at The Guildhall.
Following the ceremony, the Bridal party had a short walk to the wedding breakfast across the road, at The Old Ship. This fine public house is perfect for wedding couples, as it’s literally across the road. They also have a large private function room on their first floor available for all special occasions.
