I have been a Morden Hall wedding photographer for a while now, and have had the pleasure of photographing a number of beautiful weddings here. Morden Hall is a stunning 18th Century country house set within beautiful National Trust parkland in Morden, South London. The building was renovated in 2015, and has been a popular wedding venue ever since. It is just a few miles from the hustle and bustle of the city, but you feel like you are in the countryside. Geese and ducks swim on the nearby river and pond, and wander about on the lawn.
I know the area well because I visit Morden Hall Park almost every week with my family. The National Trust organises fantastic programmes all year around to keep visitors interested and entertained with arts and nature. The park has different sections like the Wetland (a super-popular tadpole catching area) and the beautiful historic Rose Garden with the River Wandle meandering through. Morden Hall wedding venue is set in one corner of this beautiful parkland, but the Hall and its gardens are not open to the public and so are completely private.
Morden Hall is one of my favourite wedding venues and I wanted to give some information to couples who are considering getting married there.
Morden Hall Wedding
Why do I love Morden Hall weddings?
-Easily accessible from London –there is plenty of free parking and the Hall is just 5 minutes walk from Morden tube station at the end of the Northern Line. It is ideal for couples looking for the ambience of a country wedding without having to travel too far.
-It is hard to beat the idyllic setting of Morden Hall Park with its parkland, flowers, wetland and all its wildlife.
-The possibility of having the ceremony outside, if the weather is fine. Indoors or outdoors, I have loved photographing both! Having the ceremony outside is extra special, although there may be some duck and goose poo on the grass (the price you pay to be so close to nature!)
-Exceptional food provided by Galloping Gourmet. I do have to mention that the food is of very high quality. I have heard so many guests congratulating the chef on the amazing wedding breakfast. And the evening pizza also goes down as a treat! I highly recommend all the catering at this venue!
-Fantastic customer service and wedding coordination. I worked with Emma and Amber and they are super-organised with amazing attention to detail. The couples I whose weddings I have photographed have always felt well-taken care off.
Morden Hall is perfect if you are looking for a quintessentially country wedding in an idyllic setting without travelling too far from London. It is ideal if you are a nature-lover, a foodie and want to have a well-organised wedding in a beautiful country house. Morden Hall is a hidden gem in London and it is well worth checking out if you are looking for your perfect wedding venue!
