It was a stormy, wet and blustery summer’s day. Not typical for this time of year but fortunately for Lucinda and James they were having a Blaisdon Hall Wedding with the reception held later that afternoon at the family farm. Blaisdon Hall offers a spectacular backdrop, both inside and out, so despite the poor weather we were able to utilise the magnificent rooms to set up the various shots required. This slideshow is a short preview of some of the images from their wedding.
Blaisdon Hall lies 10 miles South West of Gloucester, overlooking the stunning Severn Valley. It is an elegant Jacobean style Grade ıı* listed Victorian Mansion House, which still retains its original character with stunning stained glass windows, oak panelling, fabulous fire places and coffered ceilings.
Blaisdon Hall is one of the most famous Victorian houses in Gloucestershire. It was built in 1876 by William Crawshay, who was reputedly the Forest of Dean’s most successful Iron Master, for his son Edwin Crawshay.
Subsequently for almost 60 years the house was owned by one family until in 1935 the property was sold to the Salesion Society, who established an agricultural school for training underprivileged boys. After that, the hall became a private house again catering for Weddings and other events. Every year many of the old boys still come from all over England and abroad with their children and grandchildren to remember their younger days and pay homage to Blaisdon Hall.
