Sarah Vivienne – Wedding Photographer

Oh hey there!

It’s great to meet you!

I’m Sarah – a wedding photographer based in Northamptonshire.

I’d love to ask you about yourself and your wedding plans, but since this is a web page and I haven’t mastered telepathy, I’ll just start chatting…

First things first, congratulations on your upcoming wedding! *throws confetti in the air*

And second, if you’re considering Boughton House as your wedding venue, you have great taste! Boughton House is amazing. It’s one of my favourite wedding venues in Northamptonshire. In the UK, actually.

I’ve been Boughton’s sole recommended wedding photographer for a decade. And I fall more in love with it each time I visit.

I adore how it’s grand and relaxed at the same time. I enjoy working with the team – they’re professional but friendly and make work a pleasure. I’m inspired by all the potential photo locations, which means a wedding here never gets old. And they sell scrummy ice-cream (I recommend the coconut)! Yep, it’s one of my favourite locations for wedding photography.

So I’m thoroughly thrilled that the Boughton wedding team asked me to share how you can get the best out of Boughton House in your wedding photos.

Here goes…

Boughton’s best backdrops for natural photos

Great locations for group photos and portraits

Group photos work well on the west lawn. It’s close to hand for your drinks reception so you won’t have to move your guests very far but it’s also spacious enough to avoid the inevitable photo-bombers you get in smaller spaces. The exact background will depend on the light on the day but there’s no bad angle here!

Want a photo of everyone? On a cloudy day, go for the west front steps. And if it’s sunny, position your guests on the lawn and take the photo from an upstairs window.

And for your portraits? Mix it up and pick any spot that hasn’t already been mentioned! Some of my favourite spots for couple shots are…

But all that said, your wedding will be one-of-a-kind. And this might not work exactly for you. Plus, every photographer will have a different approach. So the important thing is that you do you.

And that’s it in a sugared almond nutshell.

Oh, hang on…

There’s one more thing you might want to know.
