The Old Palace of Hatfield House wedding film – Ish & Marcin
“I carry your heart; I carry it in my heart. I am never without it.”
The beautiful wedding of Ish and Marcin had it all; a historical setting, all-night dancing, plenty of laughter, fabulous outfits, and, of course, it was full of romance. The big day for the bride, Ish and groom, Marcin, took place in the fantastic mediaeval setting of The Old Palace of Hatfield House. With friends and family present, it was the perfect, intimate setting for an unforgettable wedding day,
The stunning venue was the perfect place to celebrate the love and friendship of Ish and Marcin. With beautiful character in the building and amazing vistas across the grounds, it was the ideal place to create lifelong memories. With so much of the grounds and buildings to explore, I tasked Aleksandra with filming the stunning scenery to add to the cinematography of the wedding film, while I shot the preparations for both the bride and groom as they got ready for their wedding day.
A wedding at the Old Palace Hatfield House
Capturing all of the stunning detail of the grounds deservedly required plenty of time. Despite the day of the wedding being incredibly cold, Aleksandra searched high and low for the best aspects and most magnificent shots to add to the wedding video.
The Palace itself was built in 1485 and still features much of the old brickwork and timber. From then on, the Old Palace has been home to royalty. In 1538, Henry VIII used the Palace as a nursery, and later Queen Elizabeth learnt of her succession to the throne in the grounds of the Old Palace. The grounds remain exquisitely maintained with a beautiful walled garden and maze. Inside the building, you can feel like you are walking among history.
While Aleksandra was being immersed in the history and beauty of the wedding venue, I spent time filming the wedding preparations of the bride and groom. The bride, Ish, looked resplendent in a beautiful vintage lace gown, ideal for a fresh spring wedding. Marcin and his groomsmen all looking incredibly dapper with matching top hats and three-piece suits.
The wedding ceremony at the Old Palace Hatfield House
As the wedding cars pulled up outside the venue in the former stable yard, it was time for the ceremony to begin. Ish’s trusted bridesmaids set the scene and then it was time for Ish to walk up the aisle. She took everyone’s breath away and there soon wasn’t a dry eye in the room. After saying their vows, and the groom kissing the bride, there were fist-pumps from the newlyweds and the wedding guests, celebrating the union.
From then one, everyone truly entered the party spirit. After a drinks reception to marvel at the grounds, and the wedding breakfast, where each guest was gifted with a scroll, it was time to party! The party began with the first dance, where the happy couple danced under a twinkling canopy of fairy lights.
From then on, there were many selfies, thanks to the fun photo props, lots of shots being downed and plenty of dancing, with dresses glittering in the disco lights. From couples dancing to whole group dances, it was a fantastic atmosphere to be a part of. As their wedding cinematography, I was so pleased to see the wedding of Ish and Marcin was everything they wanted it to be and more.
