As a pro wedding photographer I love Hatley Castle, its lush beautifully-landscaped gardens create a picture perfect backdrop to your wedding day photos. Celebrate your wedding day surrounded by majestic oak and rosewood panelled rooms with a lavish fireplace. Hatley Castle can make your dreamy wedding vision into a wedding reality. Your wedding guests will feel like they're at the royal wedding with the amazing Hatley Castle in the background of your wedding ceremony. I have seen many wedding planners transform this wedding venue, in your personal style and theme. The first dance is my favourite time to photograph at every wedding but at Hatley Castle it's that much more magical, with the guests surrounding the couple on the main staircase. Creating the most beautiful photographs, that will be your favourite artwork on your walls. 

Wedding Photography opportunities
Hatley Castle offers virtually limitless photographic backdrops for couples and their creative wedding photographer. With the beautiful surrounding gardens outdoors with regal distant mountains, and the majestic Neptune Stairs, all of your wedding photos are sure to turn out perfectly, artwork for your wall.

Hatley Castle is a much-sought-after wedding destination, and for good reason! This unique wedding venue exudes elegance and luxury, and the breathtakingly beautiful Italian, Rose, and Japanese gardens are like something out of a fairy tale. For an enchanting, unforgettable wedding that will transport you and your guests to another world, Hatley Castle is definitely the wedding venue to make all your dreams come true.
