Stunning Location: The lowdown on Gildredge Manor

Like all photographers, my favourite type of location is one that makes me look good. Step forward Gildredge Manor, this place is cool. You could take a photo on your phone anywhere here inside or out, with your eyes shut and your hands behind your back and still get a great shot. Instagram filter or not.


It was bought in 2011 by two crazy, sorry, brave entrepreneurs Emma Chamberlain and Mark Hellicar. They have transformed what was then a neglected wreck into a beautiful, versatile location for all sorts of occasions from weddings and birthdays, to photoshoots and corporate events, some very lucky overseas students even get to stay and study there in the summer.


These images were all taken at the great wedding of Sarah and Will, which I shot earlier this year. (See blog post below)
