New Hall is a very grand 13th century Country house full of medieval architectural interest and steeped in history. New Hall was originally built as a manor house by the Earl of Warwick and has the reputation of being England’s oldest listed inhabited moated house.
As I arrived at New Hall I made my way over to the main house to meet up with Cara in the Princess Elizabeth Suite. This Feature suite, an original room in the hall with its separate sitting room and bedroom was ideal for Cara’s bridal prep. It was soon time for Dad’s first glimpse before escorting Cara into the Great Chamber.
Inside the Great Chamber Ben and the guests had gathered. The chamber with its wonderful interior of oak panelling, beautifully glazed leaded windows and chandeliers made a very special setting for the wedding ceremony.
After the ceremony everyone headed out on to the terrace to celebrate with drinks, canapes, confetti and family portraits.
I joined up with Cara and Ben for a walk around the elegant grounds to take their portrait shots, which obviously included a stop at New Hall’s famous avenue of Yew Trees.
Soon it was time for me to leave Cara and Ben and their guests in the Bridge Restaurant to enjoy the wedding breakfast, but not before one last feature image in the Grand Chamber 🙂
