Rushton Hall wedding photography, history and location
Rushton Hall is conveniently situated, right in the middle of the country, rural Northamptonshire in Kettering. Rushton Hall is a magnificent Grade 1 listed country house hotel and spa surrounded by over 25 acres of stunning landscapes. Although Rushton Hall’s history is going back as far as the 16th century it didn’t lose any of its character.

Rushton Hall Weddings are a truly unforgettable experience for every couple planning to get married in a big style. If you are dreaming about a wedding in the country house or a stately home look no further. Rushton Hall is one of the most luxurious country houses in England, offering a variety of wedding packages.
I’m not surprised Rushton Hall is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in Northamptonshire. As a frequent Rushton Hall wedding photographer, I see why brides and grooms choose to get married in one of the most luxurious country houses in England. I have traveled all around England and taken pictures at hundreds of various wedding venues. There is, however only a few country houses in England as impressive as Rushton Hall.
I have to say when I visited Rushton Hall for the first time as a wedding photographer, I got really overwhelmed. I could literally stay and photograph this beautiful country house for days.
Morning of the Wedding day and Bridal Preparation
Even if the wedding couples won’t choose the exclusive use of Rushton Hall, they like to take advantage of staying over a night before and obviously on the wedding night too. There are so many different choices with 51 individual bedrooms offering plenty of room for not only bride and grooms but for their wedding guests too. There are a few very spacious room which is particularly suitable for the bride’s preparation offering enough space even for the larger bridal parties. Due to a very unique floorplan, there is no problem at all if the groom wants to get ready at Rushton Hall too. Traditionally Groom can’t see the bride from the night before the wedding day. With a bit of planning, Rushton Hall can accommodate both brides and grooms withing the hotel and make sure they won’t see each other before the wedding ceremony.
My favourite spots for wedding photography at Rushton Hall
Every wedding photographer works with light. There are loads of beautiful wedding venues out there but once inside they lack the light. That is not certainly the case at Rushton Hall’s beautiful airy orangery. The Orangery was built to match the beauty of Rushton Hall. Majestic marble accents, beautiful stone floors and elegant crystal chandeliers are only some of the reasons why Northamptonshire wedding couples book this beautiful place. The versatility of this Orangery at Rushton Hall is outstanding. There’s a place for everyone attending your wedding in this Northamptonshire jewel. Whether it’s walking through the beautiful gardens or enjoying the cracking of the fire in Marble Fireplaces, or simply be somewhere in between, enjoying the views through the big orangery windows. I like capturing those all-important group shot just outside the orangery, with a magnificent photographic background of Massive columns and floor to ceiling windows. The orangery also gives me a lot of creative opportunities after dark when I can capture my freshly wedded couples in a more dramatic way.
The Great Hall of Rushton Hall wedding photography
For those couples who’d like to celebrate their marriage in a more traditional way and to be surrounded by the rich Rushton Hall history, the Great Hall is just the perfect spot. Massive bay windows, original paintings on the wall, beautifully preserved oak cladding and one of the largest fireplaces I’ve seen. The Great Hall of Rushton Hall is simply stunning. To photograph this room during the wedding speeches is a true experience. The quality of light which is needed to produce great photos is just perfect. Each and every of the wedding photographs has a unique picturesque background. There is something beautiful everywhere.
Fabulous Grounds at Rushton Hall
After the wedding ceremony finish, the drink reception takes place in the lobby within the Orangery area or if the weather is kind it’s quite often outside. That’s where the wedding guests can take full advantage of Rushton Hall’s beautiful gardens. After those family group photographs, I like to make the wedding couple away from their wedding guests for a bit of time on their own. It’s normally a very casually informal walk where I take some documentary-style photos capturing those precious moments as they happened. My favourite places to stop for a bit are the corners of the Ruston Hall with the big stone stairs, giving a really nice background for my pictures with the whole Rushton hall in the background. The car park side is definitely my favourite too for taking those symmetrical wide-angle pictures. That’s the view which the wedding guests get after they arrive.
The Rushton Hall lake
The beautiful lake just down the hill from the country house is just the cherry on the cake. I like to leave the bride and groom just by the side and I run on the other side of the lake to snap some epic landscape photos with the married couple right in the middle of the shot. Those images are always my couples favourite ones as they capture them, the lake and Rushton Hall in the same image. Also, the couple gets a proper intimate moment just for themselves as they can hardly see me on the other side of the lake.
Small intimate, micro weddings at Rushton Hall
If you are planning a small, intimate micro wedding, Rushton hall can be just as charming for 4 wedding guest as for 150. You can choose from a various smaller rooms to have your ceremony and after you’ll get married you can enjoy your wedding breakfast or an afternoon tea at The Great Hall. You can spend as much time as you wish getting lost withing the beautiful grounds of Rushton Hall.
