Knowsley Hall is one of the most prestigious wedding venues in the north west, and the only Stately Home in the Merseyside area. We’ve been filming and photographing weddings there for many years and are proud to be a preferred supplier. Hannah and Steven opted for our Full Length Wedding Film package, which also includes a shorter highlights film.
As a fully qualified and insured drone operator, I’m able to capture some amazing footage at venues like Knowsley Hall. One thing to bear in mind is that venues like this sensibly insist on seeing insurance certificates, licences and flight plans prior to filming. If you’d like drone footage at your wedding, make sure your videographer is fully licensed and insured.
Knowsley Hall is a huge building, with an almost infinite array of lovely rooms and features. One of the nicest parts is the Lord Derby Suite, which is often used as a Honeymoon Suite and for the bridal party to get ready before the marriage ceremony. Hannah and the girls were getting ready there, so that’s where I started.
The Stucco Ballroom is a wonderful ornate room for the marriage ceremony, and has space for over 130 guests. It’s also the location for the evening reception later on.
We’ve photographed many weddings at Knowsley Hall over the years, but for Hannah and Steven’s wedding I was filming alongside Andy from andyjphotography.co.uk. Andy’s style is slightly different to ours (we’re more documentary style I would say, Andy workes in a more structured/planned way). He’s definately a very tallented guy and lovely to work with. So if you like his style I would definately recommend him.
After a fantastic meal and speeches in the State Dining Room, we all returned to the Stucco Ballroom for the evening reception. This kicked off with some spectacular dance routines by the girls from Hamilton Dance, whare Hannah is a dance teacher. After cutting the cake, it was time for the first dance. Steven had obviously been practicing, and the routine included some spectacular moves.
