Northampton & Northants Wedding Photography
From our years of experience as wedding photographers, we know that Northampton is the perfect location for a beautiful wedding and perfect wedding photography.
Northampton, like many larger towns and cities, was built near a water way. Built on the River Nene, this meant the coal and other goods could be transported cheaply to the town by river by the Nene navigation company. With archaeological evidence dating back to the bronze ages, Northampton even hosted the Parliament of England at its castle throughout the middle ages.
Northamptonshire is a vast county. With an area of 760 square miles, Northamptonshire is a landlocked county –the 24th largest in the UK. Interestingly, it is nestled between eight other counties and has the shortest county boundary at just 19 metres!
Along with Northampton, Northamptonshire has many other large towns of which we are lucky enough to visit whilst photographing weddings. These include Corby, Kettering, Wellingborough and Rushden. It is one of only a few counties in the country to have both Saxon and Danish town names, derived from its chequered past.
The county also has hundreds of country houses, castles and venues licensed for weddings including the famous Rockingham Castle from where you can see five counties!
You may have also heard of Rockingham Speedway…. This hosts driver training, track days and is one of only 2 speedways in Europe! At 1.48 miles, this American style banked oval circuit comprises of 4 very distinct corners. This is the first purpose built oval circuit since 1907 and is a fantastic day out for all the family!
Northamptonshire is also home to a section of The Grand Union Canal, with include Blisworth Tunnel. This is the ninth longest canal tunnel in the whole world! Along with the canal holiday trip, this draws a lot of attraction and tourism to Northamptonshire. This is great for the old English navigation Inns and small villages.
