Fawsley Hall, Daventry
Fawsley Hall has got to be one of my favourite Northamptonshire wedding venues. It is part of the renowned Handpicked Hotels group that own countryside hotels all across the UK. If you consider a Fawsley Hall wedding, you will feel that it is quite a magical place to have for your wedding day.
You will find Fawsley Hall nestled in rural Northamptonshire countryside. The extremely long, scenic drive gives you the feeling that you are going somewhere very grand and really special. When you enter the beautiful gates and enter the sweeping drive leading to the hall, you are not disappointed with the “wow” factor that this stunning luxury country house hotel has.
As a Northamptonshire Wedding Photographer, I am always excited to arrive here as there are so many lovely locations to photograph couples on the stunning grounds.
It is a venue steeped in history and is rich in history and grandeur. Fawsley Hall was a royal manor as early as the seventh century. Royals hunted the area from the nearby Anglo Saxon palace at Weedon. It is even mentioned in the Domesday book as far back as 1086!
