One of the finest stately homes in Britain, Aston Hall is an idyllic venue for an Asian wedding in the Midlands. Situated in its own grounds, in a beautiful public park, a wedding here all but guarantees spectacular photographs of your special day.
Aston Hall was built for Sir Thomas Hotel during the reign of Charles I. It is a magnificent red-brick mansion and Grade I listed building, recognised today as the finest example of a Jacobean prodigy house in the country.
The building itself is steeped in history: within its walls members of the Royal Family have been entertained, Royalists were held under siege during the English Civil War, and Washington Irving (author of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow) visited in the early-19th century and used it as the basis of his fictional Bracebridge Hall in a number of his short stories.
Moving into the modern day, the building is now owned by Birmingham Museums and has proven a very popular wedding venue, because of the grandeur of its design, both inside and out. Inside boasts both a Great Hall and the famed Banqueting Suite, depending on the number of guests, while there is room in the North Courtyard for a 150-person marquee to be erected.
Outside the Hall we find numerous photo opportunities among the grounds and gardens attached to the house. Of particular note is the South Garden, also known as Lady Holte’s Garden. Finished in 1637 for Sir Thomas’s wife, the garden is laid out in a symmetrical design, intended to be as peaceful as it is beautiful.
With so many stunning areas of Aston Hall to choose, from the spectacular entrance to the scenic gardens, you need a photographer that can find the best photo opportunities and capture them in a way that provides you with a truly breath-taking record of your special day. As a Midlands-based wedding photographer, I work with many of the region’s best wedding venues to achieve results that go above and beyond my clients’ expectations.
