What a Picture Photography

Highbury Hall

Highbury Hall is a grade 2 listed building situated in the Kings Heath area of Birmingham.

We visited it to meet with Dawn and Ian. We will be photographing their wedding later in 2018.

Highbury Hall fronts onto Yew Tree Road but at the rear is an extensive lawned area leading out to what is now the boundary with Highbury Park, a public park.

Ground Floor

We were suitably impressed with the amount or decorative wood in the rooms. Downstairs in the main hall where the wedding breakfast is held and the staircase from the bride and groom preparation rooms leads out to the side of the top table.

The library is one of those little pieces of history with the comfortable chairs to rest in

Off this room is the kitchen area and the library which has some charms of its own. Funnily enough they didn’t want to let me take the desk home, shame. Also from here is the access to the ceremony room which looks out onto the rear lawn area.

Above the hall is a balcony running all the way round from which the bride and groom dressing rooms are situated. The bride and groom are situated at opposite ends of the balcony

The bar is also situated off the main hall and is equipped with that essential item, a real fire, we’re looking forward to that if we’re lucky enough.

First Floor

The grooms changing area was locked whilst we were there but we did get access to the bridal changing area. It is huge but suitably so given the number of people that are often found in bridal parties. The double bed in the centre of one wall looks doll sized in this room.

The room looks out to the rear of the premises and provides a good vantage point for photographing the confetti shower ( bio-degradeable confetti please).

 

Conclusion

We are really looking forward to working here it has much old fashioned charm about it. If you like a change from the modern type of venue it’s worth looking into.

We love some of our other venues as well and have had great sessions at St Leonards Church in Frankley and the Regency Hotel in Solihull to name a couple.
