Take inspiration from these romantic real wedding photos…
Wedding photos that reveal your love and emotion in the most natural way can be stunning. Just look at the smiles of Nyla and Paul as they venture around the Landscape Garden.
Posed wedding photos can pack in tons of emotion too. Find a secluded spot like this corner of Hestercombe’s Formal Garden and let your photographer work their magic.
Your wedding will likely be the day you have the most pictures of you taken in one go in your entire lives. But if you’re not used to being in front of the camera, it’s natural to feel a little shy. Walking and talking together is a great way to get relaxed, more natural photos.
The same approach works wonderfully after dark, when your guests can gather around and light up the photo with sparklers.
When you’ve had your fill of group photos and want a moment alone, our wildflower meadow is a beautiful spot to visit.
Or you could explore the winding paths of our Landscape Garden and capture stunning wedding photos amid the ferns.
Hestercombe’s very own waterfall, fondly known as the Cascade, offers a backdrop you’ll struggle to recreate anywhere else.
The gardens are also filled with picturesque architectural features like this, the Daisy Steps. Catch them at sunset for this gorgeous glowy light…
At the far end of the Pergola, the beautiful stonework creates a dreamy backdrop as the sunlight filters through.
Speak to your photographer ahead of the day and plan to pop out for more couple’s photos during the ‘golden hour’ just before sunset. This glorious, gentle light creates an enchanting backdrop and highlights your dress and veil beautifully.
Your first kiss as newlyweds – there’s not a lot that can beat this when it comes to romantic photos. It is sometimes best to ask your guests to put their phones away for the ceremony, otherwise known as going unplugged. This ensures no screens are held out in the aisle, which could block your photographer’s shot.
One of the most romantic wedding photos of all, what could say love better than a newly married kiss as confetti cascades all around?
Sometimes all it takes is one look – that’s certainly the case for this photo, taken in the Victorian Shrubbery. One you could easily recreate.
