Mellington Hall Country House Hotel is set in stunning Mid-Wales countryside, close to the Shropshire border. Mellington Hall is a stone faced mansion in the Gothic revivalist style, surrounded by 280 acres of mature parkland laid out by renowned Gardener Joseph Paxton, of Crystal Palace and Chatsworth House Fame, with a number of rooms designed by William Morris.
It is a perfect example of an ideal romantic wedding venue for photography and filming. These are just a few ideas to whet the appetite.
On arrival at this superb romantic wedding venue in Powys, the wedding cars draw up at the grand entrance to the hall where the bride and groom alight. Many angles are possible for photography and video here. The magnificent stone porch with wide stone steps is an irresistible location for both bride and groom and ensemble shots, but look outward there is a splendid balustrade with a backdrop of gently rolling hillside.

Further around the building is a terrace overlooking the gardens where well trimmed lawns and formal borders end in pathways winding through mature rhododendron bushes ablaze with colour. These lead you to a romantic stone bridge and the lake, where the combined effect of light, reflections and the backdrop of Mellington Hall Hotel provides infinite possibilities for the photographers’ art.
We have discussed the stately interior furnishings and decor elsewhere, but it is worth mentioning the fine Oak Galleried Staircase and Staircase Hall, which are exceptionally well lit for capturing more intimate images, making Mellington Hall the perfect romantic wedding venue.
