Nanpantan Hall Wedding Photography

Faye and Tom chose to get married at Nanpantan Hall. This venue is a beautiful Victorian era home set in 16 acres of Leicestershire forest with 16 rooms, making it the perfect venue for a wedding. It truly is a hidden gem. My personal favourite part about this location was not only the incredibly stunning rooms, but the forests surrounding the venue. As always, I had done a little bit of research beforehand, to find where would be best for photos and any little hidden gems I could find. I discovered a woodland walk full of little huts and giant pine trees, which meant we were able to capture some excellent imposing photos later in the day.

Rain rain go away

Unfortunately on the day it was raining on and off – which meant we were restricted from walking in the muddier areas (not to ruin the dress!). But luckily, the pathways are well kept and there was lots to explore. Faye & Tom’s ceremony room overlooked the epic views that you could see from the rear gardens of Nanpantan Hall. During the ceremony we had a quick rain shower, but the sun shone through. It made for a very atmospheric feeling to the ceremony. For a quick moment afterwards there was a rainbow shining down on the wedding. If this isn’t a positive sign I don’t know what is!

I wanted to give a little mention to the wedding caterers – Greens Catering. I attend a lot of weddings and meet a lot of suppliers. This team by far were the most friendly I have met for a long while. From breakfast, right through to the end of the night, they were on call meeting everyones catering needs. I appreciated how they kept feeding me when I need all the energy I can get to keep going for some of the long wedding days. It can be a pretty intense workout and I always love making it clear to my wife just how many steps I did the previous day – it sometimes earns me a coffee and an extra hour in bed. Check out how beautiful the food photos look. What a shame we haven’t progressed far enough yet for you to smell and taste it!
