The Broughton Hall Estate

Skipton

WHAT THEY SAY

*****

Transformed from a 17th Century barn and surrounded by gravel courtyards and ancient oak trees with panoramic views of the stunning Yorkshire countryside; Eden is secluded and self-contained – a perfect space for your celebration.

Six bedrooms split across the house, it comfortably sleeps 12 guests with plenty of room downstairs for entertaining. Host a dinner party in our luxurious dining room or use the large contemporary lounge space for a civil ceremony for up to 100 guests.

Behind Eden is a large patio and garden with space for a marquee or teepee for up to 250 guests. Your home for the week, you can be as involved as you wish from the start of your marquee build to adding your name cards to your final table plan the night before your big day. Perhaps a small group of friends and family may arrive early in the week and enjoy some pampering and relaxation then have an intimate party in the house for your bridesmaids on Friday, a wonderfully unique and creative wedding of your choice on Saturday followed by a hangover BBQ on Sunday? Or the complete opposite! Whatever your wedding plans and dreams, Eden is a truly unique house where your every wish can come true!

There’s a reason Eden is high up on the list of my all time best wedding venues. Inside this 17th Century Barn is an absolute testament to the owners impeccable tastes, use of colour, furniture & to top it all off Eden is set within truly stunning Yorkshire scenery. I’ve photographed a lot of weddings in Skipton & the Yorkshire Dales but Eden is a venue that speaks to me personally. It’s the blend of modern white interior that juxtaposes seamlessly with its idyllic setting. I could photograph for hours just within its thoughtfully designed interior. With space within the grounds for a teepee or marquee too, this venue has everything any fan of the Yorkshire Dales would adore. If you’re a couple needing a venue that combines modern minimalist with the epic outdoors Eden at Broughton Hall is for you. Just check out Jen & Adam’s gallery here to see how they made the space their own.

The Faversham is a unique, unforgettable and relaxed wedding venue, available for both ceremonies and receptions. Set within its own grounds on the outskirts of Leeds city centre, you will have exclusive use of The Faversham day and night. We are a far cry from your traditional wedding venue, but we guarantee a day that is tailored completely around you.

With three different rooms to choose from you have plenty of choice in where you want to say, “I do!”. Our event manager will be on hand guiding you through the whole experience, helping you create your perfect day.

As much as I love the country side when it comes to photography I feel most at home in a city environment. Of course what better city is there than the one I was born in. The Faversham is situated right in the heart of Leeds & more importantly is surrounded by some of my favourite buildings in the universe. With the Roger Stevens building over the road & heaps of industrialist architecture this place is an absolute playground for me & a willing couple. Inside is host to a stunning conservatory, badass dance floor & some of the kindest staff I’ve ever had to deal with. If I’m shooting a wedding at the Faversham I already know it’s gonna be one Hell of a party. For those couples after an urban venue with heaps of character take a look at the Faversham & you won’t be disappointed. You’ve heard all about this awesome venue but now it’s time to experience it with the incredible wedding of Emily & Mike in this blog post.

WHAT THEY SAY

*****

Left Bank Leeds is a multidisciplinary arts venue set in an amazing Grade II* listed former church building in Headingley, Leeds. It’s a unique and impressive event space, in which we host exhibitions, festivals, pop-up cinema, talks, afternoon teas, music events and performances. Our amazing space is also available to hire for wedding receptions, private parties, exhibitions, corporate events, meetings and more.

A former church designed in a late gothic revival style, it stands apart from every other venue in Leeds.  We use the word ‘amazing’ a lot when we describe Left Bank Leeds. That’s because it really is! Have a look at our virtual tour and see for yourself. Get to know us and you’ll find that it’s much more than an impressive building, Left Bank Leeds is an organisation with a heart and a down-to-earth approach, connecting people to each other, to arts and culture, and to new experiences and opportunities.

When you pass Left Bank from the outside you could be forgiven for thinking it’s not going to be as epic as the rest of the venues on this list. But once you walk through those doors, Boy oh frickin boy it’s a different story. This converted former church is normally home to arts & events but opens its doors to some incredible weddings. Exploring the inside of this incredible building is just a photographers dream (Just look at those windows!) Not to mention you can brave the spiral staircase with a couple in tow to find yourself looking over the entire incredible building. With an awesome bar, welcoming staff & a crazy beautiful interior. If you love church architecture, beautiful spaces & want to be at the heart of the city then Left Bank is for you. Take a look at Hannah & Ben’s blog post right here to get some inspiration on how they made this space their own.

I’ve worked at plenty of farm venues over my years of being a wedding photographer & without a doubt Lineham Farm stands out as one of my favourites. With a beautiful outdoor woodland ceremony spot, an awesome barn & ALL THE ANIMALS TO SQUISH how can it not be right up there on my best venue list. Aside from the barn & beautiful landscapes the colourful graffitied warehouse with attached climbing wall & bar provides another contrast that gives couples almost three awesome venues in one. These guys go above & beyond to make your day as magical as it should be. Head on over to see Emily & Jamie’s wedding blog post to experience it for yourself.

WHAT THEY SAY

*****

We are Oliver and Laura Robinson: the husband-and-wife team behind The Normans wedding venue (and parents to three-year-old Ivy, baby Violet and a slightly senile pug called Betty). Our own love story began in Dubai, where we met whilst working as magazine editors before deciding to trade sun, sea and glamour for muddy wellies and country life - moving to Oliver's family farm, The Normans.

We got married at The Normans in December 2014, which is what inspired us to transform it into a cool, country venue! Since opening our doors in Spring 2016, we've been (pleasantly!) overwhelmed by the number of couples from across the UK - and beyond - wishing to tie the knot here at The Normans. We now host weddings on a weekly basis - helped by our dedicated Events Manager, the super Sharon Sanders, for whom no wedding-related query is too great or small!

We make a point of not hosting more than one weekday and one weekend wedding per week. We don't want The Normans to become a 'conveyor-belt' for weddings - we want to provide an exclusive setting for couples to make their own.

Besides, The Normans isn't just a wedding venue - it's our home, and a place close to our hearts. We care about the venue, and our personal approach means that no event need look or feel the same, nor will you be treated like ‘just another’ bride or groom. And while we're on hand to share our creative ideas or advice, we’re just as happy to leave you to it, to create your own dream day.

I could literally talk about The Normans as being one of all time favourite wedding venues all day long. From the incredible fairy lit barn that houses some of the most awesome ceremonies I’ve witnessed. To the eclectic grounds that have helped create some of the best portraits I have ever taken. The Normans is a venue that blows me away in every single way whenever I shoot there. To describe the Normans as simply a barn venue would be an injustice to everything owners Oliver & Laura have strived to create. Not only is it their home but it is an extension of themselves & in every corner of this venue there is a resounding sense of “experience.” While on the subject of Oliver & Laura I have to say these guys are easily some of the warmest & most attentive people I have met in the industry & that’s truly saying something. I can’t recommend the Norman’s enough but if you need a little more convincing here’s Jo & Andy’s wedding blog post. Feast your eyes on what makes this venue so damn special.

Oakwell Barn is a stunning restored 19th Century barn, located in the Visitor Centre to the side of Oakwell Hall, which can provide the perfect space for wedding receptions. It offers a wonderful opportunity to hold your special day in the magnificent rural setting of Oakwell Hall Country Park. Oakwell Hall Barn is now licensed for ceremonies and can accommodate weddings at various times in the day in between 10-4pm. Ceremonies in the Hall are at 11am on Saturdays and Sundays. Monday and Friday ceremonies in the Hall can be at various times of the day in between 10-4pm due to the Hall being closed to the public on these days.

Oakwell Hall is just one of those venues where every time I’ve been back I remember how incredible it is. Situated amidst magnificent grounds, the house itself was built in 1583 & ceremonies taking place amidst this epic venue are truly a sight to behold filled with age old grandeur & timeless details. The gardens are no less spectacular either & taking a bridal party out for photos amidst the Summer blooms is always a highlight. Oakwell Hall barn overlooks the surrounding woodland & is an amazing blank canvas for couples wanting to add their personal touch to one of Yorkshire’s most spectacular of venues. Check out Gemma & Jason’s wedding in this blog post for Oakwell Hall wedding inspiration.

WHAT THEY SAY

*****

Skipbridge Farm, situated in the heart of the North Yorkshire. A small and passionate family run business established in 2011. After hosting the most wonderful country wedding of our eldest daughter Katie to, now husband, Thomas we were approached to hire our venue and after a little thought we decided that it would be a shame not to offer our fantastic surroundings for others to enjoy. We decided to take the plunge and Skipbridge Country Weddings was born.

Now, 8 years on, Skipbridge Country Weddings forms the heart of Skipbridge Farm. Run by brother and sister duo, Bronte & Tom. Together, with their many years experience in events and hospitality, there really is no ask too big or small. Skipbridge Farm is situated in-between Harrogate and York in the middle of the beautiful North Yorkshire Countryside. Our family small holding is home to many weird and wonderful creatures; Donkeys, Ponies, Goats and Pigs, Alpacas, Llamas and of course our lovely family of Peacocks!

We are passionate about our business and would love to welcome you to Skipbridge Farm, we believe it exudes country charm and that our venue will impress and inspire your guests.

I’m not sure where to start with Skipbridge Country Weddings as the moment you enter the gates to the minute you leave this incredible venue you are made to feel like part of the amazing family who run it. Like a couple of venues on this list Skipbridge was born from hosting the wedding of their eldest daughter. From there they decided to open the doors to lucky couples willing to say their I do’s amidst their eclectic grounds. A walk around Skipbridge is like stepping into the minds of its magnificent owners with Hobbit holes, awesome clamping experiences, Whisky huts & enough land to house the teepee of your dreams. Every time I visit I feel like I’ve journeyed into an exciting new world. Hell even the blokes toilet is a photographers dream. I also forgot to mention these guys have so many animals to ogle, poke & generally adore amidst their quirky venue including Dave the Alpaca. I LOVE YOU DAVE! Every couple looking to get married in Yorkshire no matter where need to visit Skipbridge & see what it’s all about as words can’t even do it justice.

The flexibility of our spaces and the stunning surroundings make The Tetley one of the most impressive and stunning venues set in the heart of Leeds city centre.

When I think of Leeds City Centre urban venues the very first to come to mind is The Tetley. After ceasing beer production the headquarters is now transformed into an incredible art space right in the centre of my home city. I’m proud to be the recommended wedding photographer for the Tetley because I’m as passionate about this venue as they are. Not only are these guys tuned in to what couples want from their venue but they are equally as attentive to everyone who walks through their doors be it wedding guests or staff. Every time I’ve worked there has been an eclectically different experience. As their venue hosts different art events & exhibitions without fail there’s something new to provide a backdrop for some epic portraits. Even without the art the Tetley is surrounded by a quirky urban landscape that make me feel just so damn at home. Those couples looking for urban awesomeness & a good old fashioned p*ss up in a brewery need look not further. Check out Hayleigh & Greg’s most awesome of days at the Tetley here.
