With so many amazing wedding venues to choose from, here are some of the venues that I am an recommended wedding photographer with or that I have photographed weddings in.

Nic & Jen's Houghton Lodge Wedding Photography © Helen Rushton Photography-132Houghton Lodge, Near Stockbridge, Hampshire

Houghton Lodge is a stunning location for weddings and is one of the most romantic Historic Houses in Hampshire. Overlooking the famous chalk stream of The River Test, with panoramic views over the water meadows and along the Test Valley. There is no other house in sight and no where else could offer such picturesque views, such tranquillity for your dream day.

Built in 1793 and probably intended as a fishing lodge, Houghton Lodge is one of the earliest examples of a Cottage Orné or Rural Retreat. Designed by John Plaw, both the House and the Gardens are in the special category of Grade II* and being built on a hill overlooking the River Test, a more magical position would be hard to find.

The house is a private family home where the owners offer a welcoming, friendly and amazingly special venue for couples who are looking for a unique and exclusive wedding ceremony and reception.

With two exquisite ceremony rooms and a choice of outside structures including a woodland grotto and a riverside fishing hut, plus formal and informal gardens, acres of meadows and ample space for a marquee by the river, Houghton Lodge Gardens can accommodate small and intimate or larger wedding parties. I am one of two PREFERRED WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS at HOUGHTON LODGE
