Fawley Hill Wedding

Jun 16, 2023

Fawley Hill Wedding // If you are on the search for an eccentric playground to host your wedding then look no further! Situated not far out of London in Henley on Thames lays ‘the most bonkers estate in England.’ Home to a restored Victorian railway station and the steepest gauge railway track in the world – Fawley Hill is not a venue you’ll forget in a hurry. Chuck in a load of animals, old fashioned carousel, railway museum and rolling countryside and you get the picture!

Claire and Matt’s Fawley Hill wedding was colourful and creative. I really enjoyed shooting this wedding full of joy, character and colour. Their super sweet wedding ceremony took place on the back of a carriage whilst guest sat across the tracks. It was a really sunny day and so guests happily explored their surroundings all day.

Fawley Hill is far from a blank canvas – it has a lot going on – but still has so much scope for you to get creative with how you use the space. So much scope for quirky wedding photography. I was like a kid in a sweet shop!

Anyway, I’ll crack on and leave you to it. What a cool space huh?!
