A guide to wedding photography at Linden Hall by Mark Williamson,
Master Photographer.

Macdonald Linden Hall is, without doubt, one of the region’s finest
wedding venues. The manicured estate and floral borders around the
entrance and Secret Garden are ideal for group photography, whilst
the original Georgian entrance, with its soaring pillars, is perfect
for capturing the arrival of guests and carriages. Whilst enjoying
Linden Kir and welcoming guests, I find this an excellent opportunity
to secure informal images, giving your album a real sense of
enjoyment and atmosphere.

The Inner Hall and grand staircase benefit from natural light from
the original glass ceiling dome and in many cases allows for
photography without flash, truly capturing the soft tones and warmth
of people whilst remaining true to texture, fabrics and furniture.

As your party gather in the cocktail bar and drawing room, additional
natural images are taken that fully represent the happiness of your
special day. More formal images are taken within your chosen ballroom
or suite immediately after your ceremony or partnership. It is vital
to secure those lasting memories of joy. Your guests are then
invited to join the photography outside.

Macdonald Linden Hall’s estate, ballrooms and more intimate smaller
suites are always well presented with impressive attention to even
the smallest detail. I have been a professional photographer for over
10 years, have worked at many venues throughout the United Kingdom
and boast an enviable portfolio, but nowhere feels quite like
Macdonald Linden Hall.

A grand, romantic and impressive venue for the
most special of occasions.
