My Top 10 Yorkshire Wedding Venues

Hiya!! I have had such a wonderful and busy summer this year, and I’ve shot at some of my local amazing wedding venues, and also travelled to lush new venues that I haven’t worked at before! So… Because I am such an amazing guy, I’ve put together this short list of 10 of my Top Wedding Venues in Yorkshire!


Danby Castle

Danby Castle (Esk Valley Weddings) is a stunning venue not far from Whitby. Plus some of its Lords include the most powerful in Medieval England. How cool is that!

I’ve made it no secret how much I love this place, as soon as you pull up and see how amazing it is, with the surrounding views, it will take your breath away!

From the gorgeous ceremony room, to getting group pictures inside the castle ruins, theres so many stunning spots for photos, and the barn is just amazing.

Oaklands Weddings

Oaklands is a beautiful wedding venue in Hull, East Yorkshire. They have a HUGE tipi which is beautifully located with a forest on one side, and a field with gorgeous views on the other.

For the ceremony there is a jeti heading out over the water, with tiered seating for your guests, stunning!

Yorkshire Wedding Barn

Yorkshire Wedding Barn is a venue I haven’t worked at just yet, but I’m really excited to! I’ve heard nothing but good things, and how amazing it is!

From their site: “Sweeping down the exclusive drive you will be amazed by the far reaching views before arriving at the beautiful and newly built stone barn. The wedding barn is set in the village of Gilling West, Richmond you will be captivated by the tranquillity and breath-taking views of North Yorkshire and Dales.”

Doesn’t that sounds amazing?! I’m very excited to be heading here next year!

Wharfedale Grange

Wharfedale Grange is a stunning wedding barn in Leeds. The first wedding I photographed here was in a Tipi in a field and I fell in love with the place. From the stunning views of fields all around, to being spoilt for choice for where to head out for pictures, Wharfedale Grange really does host an amazing day.

As one of Wharfedales Grange’s recommended suppliers (Check me out, right!?) I got invited along to showcase my work at their latest open day and see the barn as it had just been open, and wow! It is stunning, there literally has been no expense spared and it really does need to be seen in person, as it is just mind blowing!

East Riddlesden Hall

It was my first time visiting East Riddlesden Hall this year, and needless to say I am VERY excited to get to photograph there again! Definitely a new one to my list of Top Yorkshire Wedding Venues.

East Riddlesden Hall is a Manor located in West Yorkshire, with weddings taken place in the Grade II listed Barn. Once the Hall is shut to the public you get full use to the entire grounds on the evening (We headed over and done shots, but you can do what you like!).

This place really is beautiful, and the wedding team were really on the ball and taking care of everything!

Rudby Hall

Rudby Hall is a gorgeous stately home situated in North Yorkshire. the first time I photographed here was a winter wedding, so the place looked amazing with Christmas trees up and roaring fires. It was so cosy and comfortable that every one just loved the place.

I’d definitely recommend this place if you love gorgeous buildings with beautiful views all around, whether its a lovely outdoor summer wedding, or indoors for a cosy winter wedding, this place will certainly do the trick.

Grinkle Park

Grinkle Park is a beautiful country house nestled in the Yorkshire Moors, with Whitby just down the road. There are beautiful gardens and even a lake on the grounds which are ideal for pictures!

Having shot here twice in the summertime, I can appreciate how awesome this venue lends itself to relaxed weddings, where guests can just chill outside and drink whilst taking in the views (and canapés).

Lartington Hall

This year was my first time working at this gorgeous venue, and it didn’t disappoint! From being surrounded by beautiful scenery and gorgeous views, as well as sheep, there are plenty of options for pictures.

This country hall is also really deceiving. As soon as you walk in the place seems to go on forever, with the hall leading on and on to different rooms. Definitely some Tardis work going on here!

Whinstone View

Wrays Barn at Whinstone View is a gorgeous venue which can hold weddings both inside or outside. I got to shoot here three times this year, and each was simply unique and stunning.

With gorgeous views and Roseberry Topping just down the road, it is definitely worth a quick ten minute drive out for some pictures of just the two of you near one of the iconic landmarks of the north east.

This place quickly went to the top of my food list when they served us a BUCKET of ice cream for our dessert. Legends! Each wedding has been so different with three course meals, a BBQ and even a Fish and Chip van! and I enjoyed them all!

Middleton Lodge

Middleton lodge is a gorgeous country estate set in North Yorkshire. It is definitely one of my top Yorkshire Wedding Venues. I’ve shot a few weddings here as well as exhibiting at wedding fairs, and each time I visit I just love the place.

From summer weddings on the lawn with garden games for the kids. To being inside the House with the fire roaring on those comfy chairs, this place has a lot to offer, especially with the addition of weddings inside of the new Fig House.

I’ve seen weddings both inside of the round room at the bottom of the stairs, as well as outside in the garden, and both just look amazing in this setting.
