Ashorne Hill is a Grade II listed extended country house in the Warwickshire countryside. Conveniently located just off J15 M40, this is a fabulous wedding venue combining old with new. The manor house is the home of your wedding ceremony, while the modern extension is the home to your wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. With absolutely stunning grounds and views, Ashorne Hill presents a fantastic venue for your wedding and photography.

Some key skills and feedback regarding wedding photography at Ashorne Hill

If you are getting married at this amazing wedding venue, you will need a professional wedding photographer with experience shooting at this location. It’s an amazing venue, but it does present some challenges that an amateur or hobbyist photographer will find very difficult. The various rooms present challenging lighting conditions that only a professional with professional kit will be able to produce high quality wedding photos. The stairs, lobby and balcony aren’t particularly blessed with natural light, so an expensive camera with a high quality lens is definitely required. The same can be said for the Charlecote room where larger ceremonies are held. Good natural lighting is evident in the large bay window, ideal for the nuptials and signing of the register (although it’s backlit), but the light declines towards the back of the room where the bride and groom depart.

The modern extension is less of a challenge (in the summer months), with floor to ceiling windows it boasts ample lighting; but will be equally challenging for a non professional in the winter months when darkness falls much earlier in the day. If you are opting for a winter wedding and you want group photographs in the superb grounds, you will need to take into account the rapid decline in light and ensure that your photographs are scheduled appropriately.
