Yorkshire Wedding Photographer Cluskey Smith Weddings favourite Yorkshire Weddings
God’s own country, home of the Yorkshire Pudding, the place where people are happy to speak to each other on public transport – Yorkshire is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we are privileged enough to work all over the county. We’re based in Hull which is going to be the City of Culture in 2017, we’re excited to see what happens and are already seeing transformations around the city. As cute as Hull is, it’s great to get out and about and see the rest of Yorkshire where there are hills and building that aren’t shaped like sinking ships! We love being Yorkshire Wedding Photographers and we’ve shared a couple of our highlights of the county and it’s stunning wedding venues below.
One of our favourite places in Yorkshire is the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. Sadly, this will no longer be a wedding venue, we were fortunate enough to shoot a wedding there last year and we still often meet couples here for engagement shoots. Our engagement shoots are really relaxed and we don’t make things awkward by making you do daft poses, we just have a chat and a catch up before the wedding day whilst taking a couple of photos of you before the big day.
Kirk stall Abbey in Leeds has to be one of the most spectacular venues we’ve photographed. It really is stunning and makes an amazing place to have an outdoor humanist ceremony like Helen and Richard where the ruins silhouette against the sky and cast dramatic shadows.
What was really lovely about this particular wedding is that we traveled all over Leeds and Harrogate, starting at Rudding Park Hotel, taking a vintage bus to Kirkstall Abbey and then on to Wharfdale Grange for the tipi wedding reception. The views here are gorgeous, with rolling hills and amazing sunsets, right in the heart of Yorkshire.
Beverley Minster is another breathtaking church and venue for a wedding ceremony. There is something genuinely awe-inspiring about this beautiful building and its incredible architecture. Beverley itself has loads of charm and there are plenty of local suppliers that take great pride in working with this beautiful venue in East Yorkshire and as Wedding Photographers in Hull, it’s a great local venue for us.
A new favourite of ours is Saltmarshe Hall, near Howden and Goole, you can see more details of this beautiful venue in our blog here. We are really looking forward to shooting a wedding here later this year. The details at this venue are amazing, they have thought of everything here and the grounds are so varied and lovely too, we particularly like the secret garden area and the terrace of trees. This venue is great for indoor and outdoor wedding ceremonies and the staff are lovely too which is so important when choosing a wedding venue.
Rossington Hall near Doncaster is a stunning venue with loads of charm and period features, we love the unique feel to this venue and all of the hiding places too, it’s a little bit of a maze! There’s a really beautiful staircase and historic feature decor to fall in love with as well as amazing gardens. As Yorkshire Wedding Photographers, we are happy to travel across the county and also across the UK to photograph beautiful weddings at beautiful venues.
Travelling back up north to Harrogate, you have the rather gorgeous Rudding Park, a beautiful all inclusive wedding venue that basically has it all, including it’s very own little chapel. We like the modern feel of this venue mixed with the more traditional features of the building and grounds, Rudding Park has so much to offer brides and grooms on their wedding day.
Further north again, you have the Old Lodge in Malton with the most amazing staff ever. We tend to judge how well a venue will look after you by how well they look after other suppliers and we were treated like royalty, so your experience as a bride and groom must be amazing! This is a really cute venue with lots of character and an intimate feel. We really love shooting weddings here!
