Here is selection of links to some of the great venues which I have been lucky enough to work at through my role as a wedding photographer.

Country Park Hotel

“Set within the shadow of the Humber Bridge, The Country Park welcomes visitors to stay at the hotel and enjoy home cooked food, refreshing drinks, and a warm atmosphere. Located near the Humber Bridge foreshore of the Humber estuary, The Country Park combines beautiful views with a unique setting to create a truly picturesque restaurant dining and wedding venue.”

Fountains Abbey

“For centuries people have been drawn to this inspiring place. From humble beginnings the magnificent abbey was established by devout monks seeking a simpler existence. The atmospheric ruins that remain are a window into a way of life which shaped the medieval world.”

Leicester Guildhall

“The Guildhall is a historic building and the oldest building still in use in the city. It was Leicester’s first police station and between 1876 and the 1900’s and saw many unsavoury characters pass through its doors. The Great Hall itself was built in about 1390 as a meeting place for the Guild of Corpus Christi (a small but powerful group of businessmen and gentry) and it’s also believed that Shakespeare performed here during Tudor times. Over the years it has had many uses, including housing one of the oldest public libraries and serving as the Town Hall. After restoration, the Guildhall was opened to the public as a museum in 1926. The Guildhall is available for private hire and is a historic and atmospheric venue for weddings, civil ceremonies, renewing wedding vows and naming ceremonies”

St John of Beverley

“Located just outside North Bar, the only survivor of Beverley’s four medieval gates. St John of Beverley Church was built in 1897 by the Hull based architects Smith, Brodrick and Lowther and the builder George Pape. It is an example of Victorian Gothic style. Renowned architectural expert Nikolaus Pevsner described this attractive red brick church as ‘Gothic in a free, playful way, with an asymmetrically placed turret’. The church was first used for mass on Christmas Day 1897 and formally opened on 10 March 1898. It was not, however, consecrated until 7 May 1999. The dedication is to St. John of Beverley, formerly Bishop of Hexham and Bishop of York, who retired to the monastery he founded in Beverley. He died there c.721 and was canonised 1037.”

Tickton Grange

“At home in Hockney’s Yorkshire somewhere amidst the rolling Wolds and rugged coastline, stands our handsome Georgian hideaway. A family affair, brushed with Palladian hues and kissed with all things boutique; stroll amongst English gardens, sink into sumptuous interiors, share our table laden with consummate delights; before bed, cloaked in the softest of Yorkshire yarns.”
