If you're planning on getting married in Leicestershire, there are plenty of traditional, spectacular and unique locations to choose for your engagement or wedding photography.
Perhaps you're looking for an interesting backdrop for an engagement photography shoot, or the perfect location for Leicestershire wedding photography. There are country parks, castles, weirs, locks, a space centre, and even a historical railway to choose from. Your Leicester wedding photographer will no doubt also have a few ideas to inspire you, too. If you're after a location for your wedding photos in addition to your ceremony or reception venue, you may even want to consider a short trip to a separate location in between your vows and your reception meal!
Here are just a few suggestions for great places to shoot wedding photography in the Leicestershire area:
Set in tranquil countryside on the Leicester line of the Grand Union Canal, Foxton locks is the largest 'flight of staircase' locks in Britain. The backdrop of traditional narrowboats making their way through the locks would make for fantastic wedding photographs!
A gem of a country park, Bradgate park is an area of unspoilt beauty, containing woodlands, wildlife, the River Lin, 'Little Matlock gorge' and the stunning ruins of Bradgate House. A dramatic location for wedding photography, or the perfect place for a country walk and an engagement photoshoot!
Kirby Muxloe Castle:
Another dramatic and historic location for atmospheric wedding photography in Leicestershire - Kirby Muxloe castle is a semi-ruined 15th Century castle that has been conserved by English Heritage. With a corner tower, brick-built mansion and traditional moat, it will make for beautiful wedding or engagement photographs.
