Holden & Jones are pioneers as Wynyard Hall Wedding Photographers. We have been working at Wynyard since long before it opened as a major wedding venue.
We photographed nearly all the images for the Wynyard Hall wedding brochure, the Wynyard Hall magazines and most of the images for the website too. It’s fair to say we know the venue well and when Sir John Hall the owner of Wynyard Hall wrote a book about the history of the house it was one of our images that he selected for the front cover of the book..
Not surprising then that we have long been the photographers of choice for many couples who have got married there over the last 4 or 5 years. The weddings we have photographed at Wynyard have often been published in national bridal titles and are always in demand from the wedding blogging community.
When you are choosing a photographer for your wedding at Wynyard Hall you need to consider many factors. Not least is can your photographer deliver the wow factor that the venue demands and if wedding photography matters to you then Holden & Jones are the natural choice as wedding photographers to document your wedding day at Wynyard Hall Hotel.
Quite simply when i booked Wynyard Hall for my wedding i asked the wedding co-ordinator there who i should look at for my wedding photography and even though Holden & Jones do not pay to go on the list of promoted photographers that’s who they quietly suggested to me and i couldn’t be happier with my choice.

Reflected Available Light At Wynyard Hall
The above image shows how we dealt with the difficult lighting during speeches in the ballroom. We always elect to use available light and avoid flash wherever possible. It was very bright outside and the contrast in the room was heavy so we used the reflected light from the grooms speech papers to light his face with great effect. Without the reflected light all you would see is a silhouette.
Last Moment Tensions In Wynyard Hall’s Mirror Room
This shot receives so many comments and really does sum up the atmosphere at the front of a wedding service just before the groom and bride set eyes upon each other. You can really feel the tension in the Mirror Room at Wynyard as the groom squeezes his fingers and wonders what his bride will be wearing.
Incredible Acoustics In The Chapel At Wynyard Hall
For weddings at Wynyard Hall couples book many different acts, bands, or activities to entertain their guests. So far the London Gospel Choir in the chapel takes some beating as all those there will testify too. Because people feel comfortable with us at weddings it allows us to get very close to the action without intruding on the day.
