The Old Hall, Ely – Wedding Photographer
I absolutely loved being a wedding photographer at The Old Hall, Ely.
People often contact me and ask “have you shot at my wedding before?” – and I always say the same thing; “it doesn’t really matter”. Every day is different; the weather, the guests, the styling, the light – all of it.
However, I do enjoy spending the day at a beautiful venue, and a beautiful wedding venue this is!
The Old Hall, Ely
The Old Hall is a superb country retreat within a mile of the heart of historic Ely in Cambridgeshire. This recently renovated Jacobean manor house, with stunning views over lakes to Ely Cathedral, offers all that is best in English Country House hospitality.
The Old Hall Ely in Cambridgeshire is renowned for its warm and welcoming atmosphere and is run entirely by the Morbey family, who have many years experience in hosting weddings. They pride themselves on being the opposite end of the spectrum from a hotel; to be totally exclusive, creative, flexible and personal. When we say The Old Hall is ‘exclusive use’, they really mean it: the house and gardens are yours for the day and night as well, thanks to their luxury Honeymoon Suite and guest bedrooms.
The Old Hall is a recently renovated Jacobean manor house, set in its own unique and historic estate of 3000 acres in the heart of Cambridgeshire. Since the Morbey family purchased the Cromwell Estate and house from The Bagge family in 1830, the estate has been developed by successive generations into a productive arable farm.
The present generation, Alison, and the LATE Anthony Morbey diversified the house in 2010 into a 5 Star gold Bed and Breakfast and an ‘Exclusive Use’ venue that is booked in its entirety for weddings, Christmas parties and private dinner parties.

An Amazing Wedding I Photographed at The Old Hall, Ely
Book a Documentary Photographer (Me) for your wedding
There are many reasons to book a documentary photographer, like myself, to photograph your wedding. A documentary wedding photographer excels at capturing the genuine moments and emotions that unfold throughout your wedding day. Rather than staging poses or orchestrating scenes, I will focus on candid shots that reflect the true essence of your celebration. From the nervous anticipation before the ceremony to the heartfelt exchanges of vows and the crazy dancing at the reception
I want to document the real, unscripted moments that make your wedding unique. I will weave together a visual narrative that tells the story of your day in a heartfelt and authentic way.
Rather than constantly directing or interrupting the flow of events, I will work discreetly in the background, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the day you have planned. This approach creates a comfortable environment, enabling natural interactions and genuine emotions to shine through. You and your loved ones can enjoy the day without feeling self-conscious or pressured, resulting in photographs that capture the true atmosphere and connections shared on your wedding day.
