Garthmyl Hall Wedding Photography – Emily & Tom

Garthmyl Hall is a Grade II listed house in Mid Wales, a short distance from the border to Shropshire and West Midlands of England. The house was rebuilt in 1859 by the architect James K Colling for Major-General William George Gold, of the 59th Regiment of Foot (later the Shropshire Regiment). A timber built Garthmyl House had existed on the estate but was damaged in the mid 18th century by fire, though remains of the structure was in evidence until at least 1825. Following the death of the Major-General and that of his wife the ownership of the house and estate returned to John Naylor of Leighton Hall, who had paid for the property as a wedding gift when his sister, Elizabeth Mary married Gold. It was later purchased by Mrs Harriet Humphreys, and it continued in the ownership of the Humphrys and Churchill family until 1985. Most recently the hall was bought in October 2015 by the Pugh family. The next few years was spent extensively renovating the house, gardens and stable block. Garthmyl Hall opened in April 2016 as a luxury wedding venue. It can accommodate up to 21 people in the main house and a further 22 in the collection of cottages within the former stables, kennels and clock tower.

Below is a small sample of the Garthmyl Hall wedding photography I provided to Emily and Tom, who were married here on 20th April 2022. The coverage starting the generously sized bridal suite where Emily and her maids were getting ready. Meanwhile, Tom and his ushers were in one of the stable yard cottages, before making their way to greet guests. The spring weather was warm enough for the marriage ceremony to take place outdoors in the Cadw grade II registered gardens. The iron gazebo in the walled garden provided the centre piece as the happy couple exchanged their nuptials. Emily and Tom had a specific aesthetic in mind for their wedding groups, they requested a more editorial approach for one or two. These do take a bit more time, and can only be done for a handful without monopolising the drinks reception, but I must admit they do look rather nice in this setting. This was the first time I have photographed a wedding at Garthmyl Hall, and I truly hope to be returning very soon. The location is amazing, the house and gardens are all very well maintained and credit to the Pugh family and the friendly wedding staff.
