Down Hall Hotel wedding photography – Hailey and Ardel’s Winter Disney and Universal Studios wedding
Down Hall hotel wedding photography – Hailey and Ardel’s winter wedding with a Disney and Universal studios adventure park theme.
Down Hall hotel is a Italian style mansion dating back to the 14th century, full of orate rooms and beautifully landscaped gardens in Hertfordshire. Hailey and Ardel both LOVE Disney and theme parks in general, so it was only fitting that their wedding should feature them in some way. They used Disneyland pens to sign the register and for the wedding guestbook, and the wedding breakfast table decorations were just awesome. I don’t think the venue ever had so much fun decorating tables before! All tables were themed around rides at Disneyland and Universal studios, so plenty of Minions, Harry Potter and Pirates of the Caribbean dress up accessories were to be found. I spent a loooong time poring over each fun table taking pictures. They really wanted their guests to have fun and get into the party spirit and it certainly worked! They also issued guests with Disneyland style “passes” instead of a table plan, which is a really fab creative idea, and I borrowed theirs for their ring shot.
Hailey and Ardel were such troopers for braving the cold to have their portraits outside but I’m so glad they did, because no Down Hall hotel wedding photography is complete without a stroll round the gorgeous gardens! And despite the winter storms, we got a cracking slice of golden hour.
After dinner it was off to cut the Minions wedding cupcakes and on the floor for dancing. Ardel’s family had surprised the couple with a traditional Iranian wedding table for the evening too, full of beautiful plates and sweet treats.
A massive thank you to Hailey and Ardel for having me for their Down Hall hotel wedding photography – two absolutely lovely people and a rocking wedding!
