Halstead House is a gorgeous farm wedding venue in the Leicestershire countryside. As a wedding photographer you have your favourite places and Halstead House is up there on the list. It’s beautiful, photographically bursting with potential, but what makes it really special is the style in which the venue is run. The wedding at Halstead House was managed perfectly but staff were very low key. It was lovely, you had the freedom to explore the whole farm which made you feel so welcome and relaxed. There was a lovely happy atmosphere, everyone was friendly and helpful. I definitely highly recommend Halstead House if you’re looking for a laid back, country wedding with a personal touch.
When we arrived at Halstead House in the morning, it was so quiet and peaceful, we had a little walk around the farm and then went to find Catherine and the girlies who were getting ready in one of the little cottages there. It was nice to see hairdresser Mel again and have a catch up. Bridal preparations always fly by and it wasn’t long before Shaun and I were heading to the church under some rather ominous black clouds! I’m getting used to this mixed up weather, April showers in May, and a bit of thunder thrown in too! The key is to just run with it, be prepared with funky umbrellas etc. and don’t let it get you down, I used to dread rain at weddings but now I’ve just learnt to make the most of it, it’s all memories! Catherine and Eamon had a lovely ceremony at Our Lady of Victories Church in Market Harborough. Father O’neil was fab, so friendly, which makes all the difference. Guests had fun travelling back to the Farm on an open top bus, did make me chuckle. My car might be poxy but at least it has a roof!
Everyone had a great day, the speeches were very funny, I always love capturing people’s reactions. Catherine and Eamon had put a lot of thought into the day to make sure people had fun. They had table football and pool and a help yourself sweet shop. The place names were pebbles with peoples names painted on them, must have taken hours! The food was delicious (thank you!) the meal was followed by a non traditional cake cutting, Catherine and Eamon had a massive chocolate wedding cake but also a pork pie cake! Congratulations Catherine and Eamon,we really enjoyed capturing your day, hope you enjoy the photographs. Halstead House Wedding Photography by Beautiful Life
