Situated in 26 acres of beautiful, scenic grounds is the stunning new Donington Hall wedding venue

In October 2016, I had the privilege of photographing one of the first weddings to take place at the stunning new Donington Hall wedding venue.  The day began at the Priest House, which is Donington Hall’s sister venue.  With it’s beautiful river side location, the Priest House is the perfect place for couples to enjoy a relaxing stay before and after the wedding.  It was also an ideal location for my wonderful couple to start their day!  With just a very short drive along the tree-lined lane in this quiet corner of Leicestershire, we arrived at the stunning 18th century Hall.  As I entered through the grand doorway, I paused to read the historic scriptures above, which detail the history of this grand building.  The calm ambiance inside resonated throughout the grand rooms, with high ceilings and many original features.

Our bride made her arrival and was able to make her way to the chapel along the south-facing frontage of the house, giving me some epic shots! Inside the chapel, the sun was streaming in through the colourful stained-glass windows.  The guests took their seats as the groom waited patiently (nervously!) for his beautiful bride’s grand entrance.  The light streaming into the stunning chapel made for superb photographs and also gave the civil ceremony a church-like feel.

Following the ceremony, our happy couple exited the chapel into the glorious sunshine that bathed the front of the house.  Whilst guests mingled in the bar area, we made use of the stunning scenery as a backdrop for family photos.  We also made good use of the time before food was served to create many dramatic, epic shots and fully utilised the fabulous surroundings!

  1. I’ve never actually seen Donington Hall, but what a stunning venue!! You have most certainly done it justice too, the photos are incredible! Just love the natural light and tone, really captures the atmosphere perfectly! Great work as always, Paul!

  2. Hi, just want to say thank you for the stunning photographs that you have took of Sam and Hannah’s wedding, it was a fantastic day and you captured it perfectly, again thank you.

    1. Thank you too, Jane! It was a pleasure and honour to be part of such a wonderful day, with fantastic people and in great surroundings!

  3. Hi, my name is Sam and I’m the proud husband who married my wonderful partner of 8 years at the beautiful venue of Donington Hall in October 2016. The grounds and internal finish of the Hall were stunning in nature but was presented excellently by Charlotte of Dyl & Co. who organised the dressing of the Chapel, Antechamber and Library areas. Contributing to the day was the fantastic whether (for October) and as you can see from the collection of pictures on display, the beauty of both the venue & my wife has been captured in Paul Eyre’s amazing eye for a jaw-dropping shot. I’d advise anybody to visit Donington Hall for a viewing as the dramatic landscape and grandeur of the building, including it’s historic footprint cannot truly be appreciated until you see it for yourself.

  4. Stunning photos. It was a fantastic day and you captured that in your images and that has given Sam and Hannah wonderful memories to look back on. Amazing photographer and would highly recommend x
