Fanhams Hall Hotel in Ware Hertfordshire Is a Photographers Drea

Fanhams Hall hotel in Ware Hertfordshire is one of the finest wedding venues in Herts and a photographers dream. A grade II Jacobean mansion house set within 27 acres of a mixture of manicured and wild gardens gives an array of photographic opportunities to capture a truly memorable day.

It hosts two reception options, the great hall and the pavilion. The great hall with it's high beamed ceiling, minstrels gallery and Jacobean fireplace offers a more traditional feel in comparison to the modern two levelled pavilion. The pavilion has a contemporary feel with incredible natural light, a private lakeside veranda and water fountain, a lovely space for guests to enjoy the evening sunshine and still be close to all the action.

The great Hall can seat approximately 120 guests and has an adjoining room with a fantastic black and white chequered floor and tall leaded windows making it an ideal space to photograph in if the weather is bad. The size of the great hall not only makes a great space for the wedding breakfast but it can also be used for the ceremony itself. An alternative ceremony room is the long gallery situated above the great hall. This is a vast wooden panelled room with windows on two sides flooding it with natural light. The ceiling in itself is a work of art with it's decorative detail and hanging lanterns, giving added interest to a wide angle shot of the room from behind the bride and groom. Fanhams Hall also has a licence to hold civil ceremonies outside in the Japanese tea house.

Whichever reception choice the bride and groom make, the photographic opportunities are endless and far exceed the time a photographer will have with the couple on the day. The manicured sunken garden featuring a fountain in the middle is a fantastic spot. It is an ideal spot to photograph the group shots as the stairs give the height needed to look down and capture all the guests together. If time and weather permits there are many photogenic spots to take the bride and groom. It may be photographing them in the Japanese tea house, on the popular red bridge or simply walking hand in hand along the lavender lined path. The grandeur of the building itself makes for an iconic shot featuring the bride and groom in the sunken garden with the fountain and house in the background. All of this is down to the photographer's creativity and flair.
