If you like your wedding mixed with a historic house and a romantic garden, then Rufford Old Hall in Lancashire may inspire you. Guests arive and wait in the forecourt surrounded by topiary and lawns.
The friendly National Trust volunteers and house managers then show people in to the Great Hall in preparation for the ceremony. I have photographed weddings here at different times and it is always very atmospheric.
A nervous moment for the groom, but despite the history it is a cosy and friendly space and a place to relax especially when the ceremony is over.
Usually it is the bride who signs the register on these pictures. Beautiful dresses can be made the most of .
