Acklam Hall is the new kid on the block and is definitely not a terrible two (it’s been open as a venue for 3 years). I was there last week (March 2018) taking some room set images for their new website and the attention to detail is impeccable, from the décor to the fine china. No corners have been cut and no expense has been spared bringing this beautiful venue up to date. You need to ask GM Michael Jones about the history of this venue as he knows loads of interesting stuff, test his knowledge next time you’re there for afternoon tea (BTW I can recommend the SIR WILLIAM’S TEA).
A 12 minute drive from my studio in Norton High Street to Acklam Hall, means this venue is right on my doorstep…
I’ve photographed a fair few weddings at here, the bridal party and guests love reception drinks in the gardens, I’ve worked here with musicians and magicians who always add an extra dimension to the wedding drinks ambience. The family group shots in the garden can be watched by all the guests as they sip their Summer Fruit Pimm’s. The Drawing Room during the day is flooded with daylight, making it ideal for candid photography and the natural emotion captured during the speeches. The calm before the evening party storm is ideal for a wander around the compact, but beautiful grounds for some creative Bride and Groom photography.
Interesting Acklam Hall fact – It’s a Grade 1 listed building, which means it’s of exceptional interest.
