Rachel and Alasdair got married at Fanhams Hall, a luxury venue in Ware, Hertfordshire, with outstanding gardens to explore and a Jacobean country house with traditional and more modern areas. It was the most beautiful wedding, and even the rain didn’t dampen the day!

The serious part

The ceremony was a legal ceremony at Farnham Hall’s stunning Long Gallery room. It was beautifully decorated with red carpet, rose petals and beige sashes on the chairs. During the ceremony, they had two great readings. One performed by Rachel’s sister and another by her best friend. It was such a personal service.

Why Fanhams Hall is a great place to get married

Fanhams Hall is perfect for anyone who loves the outdoors and is one of the best places to get married in Ware, Hertfordshire. The venue offers an onsite hotel, so guests don’t have to travel home. I absolutely adore this venue because it has so many fabulous opportunities for portraits. Weddings at Fanhams Hall are excellent because the surroundings are absolutely fantastic.

The afternoon

The reception was held in the stunning Great Hall at Fanhams Hall. They decorated the area with origami swans. They could have been found on every table used as a name card (how thoughtful!). They were also used as a backdrop behind the top table, which I loved.

The couple had planned giant garden games for the afternoon mingle. They kept everyone entertained throughout the drinks reception. After their wedding breakfast, it was time for speeches. Alasdair kept his short but excellent by saying how he and Rachel have met. And to make a change in the traditional speeches, Rachel also had a few words to say. In the evening DJ – Mike Readings kicked off the first dance with their favourite song, Shooting Star by Air Traffic. They finished off the evening with a ceilidh.
