Headlam Hall Wedding Photography
Headlam Hall is an authentic 17th century country house retreat in the scenic Durham dales of Northern England. The Hall stands in beautiful walled gardens and is surrounded by its own rolling farmland. Not only is this historic family owned property is an idyllic rural retreat with a luxury spa and golf course, it is also a stunningly beautiful wedding venue which is why Scarlett and Lewis chose Headlam Hall is the perfect place for their wedding celebrations.
We asked Scarlett and Lewis why they had chosen Headlam Hall as their wedding venue. "Headlam hall was a venue we found online, the second we drove in through the gates we knew it was special. It's not too big yet not small, everything was in close proximity as we have children I didn't want them to wander off and get lost. The coach house is fabulous with the glass roof and sparkling chandeliers. It had a warm country feel but with added glam which is just what our wedding was."
Wedding Day Theme
We were thrilled when Scarlett and Lewis booked us to be their wedding photographers, two amazing people, lovely families and a beautiful location at headlam Hall, it was a perfect combination for us. We were really excited as there was a themed planned for the day and Scarlett explained, "Our theme was glam, we had black and ivory theme. I wanted classy but sexy also, the groomsmen were in black bow tie tuxedos and my bridesmaids were black floor length gowns with pearl accessories, very Audrey Hepburn but with a little sass also."

One of our favourite parts of the day, the excitement, the nerves, the laughter and the tears all make an appearance. Scarlett and Lewis's day at headlam hall had it all. Scroll through to see just some of the highlights.

The Speeches, Cake Cut and Dancing.
We tell every couple that your day will go so quickly and before we knew it it was time for the speeches, the cake cut and the dancing. More chances to photograph some memorable moments. We asked about their first dance and Scarlett told us, "Our first dance was to Chris Stapleton Tennasee Whisky, not many people know it as its a country song but Lewis played me the song about 4 years ago and we've loved it ever since. Very easy song to dance the "awkward sway" to."
Time To Get Creative.
We love the chance to get creative, when the light fades our kit comes out, Scarlett and Lewis were so up for this and after a change of dress to a gorgeous evening gown for Scarlett, we started to make magic for them. We all love the results of the bit of time we spent with them later in their day.
Stand Out Moments.
What were your standout moments of the day providing memories you’ll cherish forever?
"Walking down the aisle was just how I pictured it, so emotional but seeing everyone's face was just amazing. Seeing Lewis waiting at the top gave me the biggest butterflies. Getting our pictures done on the grounds was so much fun, me and Lewis rarely get pictured together but we were so at ease with our photographers it ended up being a favourite part of our day."
