Redworth Hall scouting trip

I'm photographing a wedding at Redworth Hall, County Durham, for Lynne and James in February, so I took a trip down there yesterday to scout the place out.

The building is an 18th century Jacobean Manor House, but the site dates back to 1693. It is set within 150 acres of landscaped gardens and spectacular woodland. 

The ceremony is taking place in the great hall, which is just as grand as it sounds, with a giant fireplace, a high ceiling held in place by huge oak beams, and polished wooden floors. Ancient flags and chandeliers complete the look.

There's a Victorian folly out in the woods that I'd love to use as a backdrop for photos but we might need to don wells to get there!

I can't wait for the wedding in February.
