Island Hall Indoor Weddings

The beauty of Island Hall wedding venue is that it is perfectly grand and stylish, yet always completely homely. This is because it is simply a gorgeous home that opens its doors to a small number of weddings each year. If I were getting married there I couldn’t choose between an indoor or outdoor ceremony – both and perfect settings.

Exclusive Cambridgeshire Wedding Venue

Some local wedding venues can feel extremely busy, hosting weddings on what feels like nearly every day of the week. If you have visited Island Hall you will know that it maintains a sense of calm and exclusivity. Every wedding there feels so special.

A Beautiful House and Gardens

Drinks receptions on the lawn of Island Hall can be fun and stylish – with live music, croquet and other garden games adding to the wonderful ‘English country house’ atmosphere.

“Chris was absolutely fantastic on and during the lead up to our wedding day. He has a natural eye for photography and captured all the best moments beautifully. Chris has a really relaxed demeanour and is highly professional and incredibly easy to work with – the kind of person you would want on your wedding day.”
Clare & Alex, married in Cambridgeshire.

“Chris has given us the best wedding gift ever – a chance to relive the happiest day of our lives over and over again through the wedding pictures and videos. He has a wonderful way of capturing the most natural moments, and making us feel comfortable in front of the camera.”
Patricia & Michael, married near Cambridge.

“Chris is an enormously talented photographer and was a wonderful presence at both our wedding and engagement shoot: incredibly accommodating but calm and unobtrusive at all times, he took the most amazing and natural shots. He has produced pictures that are nothing short of spectacular and which look both contemporary and timeless. We couldn’t recommend him more highly.”
Jamie & Brigid, married in Cambridge.

About Me

The first good photograph I took was of Bob Dylan. It was with a simple 35mm film camera at a music festival many years ago. The picture was just a snapshot, but it captured the spirit of the day – which is what it’s all about.

Photography and music have always been linked for me as I spent many years photographing concerts and musicians for a newspaper. All through this time I was learning how to use a camera and how to photograph people and it was a wonderful way to learn.

Today I’m a wedding photographer and videographer and could not be happier. It would be a pleasure to join you on your wedding adventure and to document your celebrations.
