Winter Wedding Photography at Down Hall
As featured on The Wedding Secret
Each time I look at the photographs from this fabulous festive time wedding, the more I love everything about their day. With the roaring fires, the deep rich colours, the festive decorations and everyone in a party mood.
For Mark and Lisa’s wedding, it was a few days after Christmas and a short journey to the splendid Down Hall wedding venue in Hertfordshire. Down Hall was looking magnificent and everything was set for a brilliant day ahead.
