Back in August this year I was honoured to provide the wedding photography at Sandburn Hall in York for Amy & Luke. Sandburn Hall is a beautiful wedding venue featuring a spectacular oak framed Grand Function Hall with stunning views across the golf course, fountain and lakes. It is a romantic wedding venue with so many different little hide aways for couple portraits and family group shots. I have been really Lucky to photograph lots of weddings at this beautiful venue.
Since photographing Amy & Lukes wedding, the venue now offers a luxury on site hotel which overlooks the stunning grounds. The bridal suite has floor to ceiling windows and lots of amazing natural light.
I began my day with Amy and her bridal party at Griffon Forest lodges. They are situated just a few minutes drive from the venue and also accessible by foot through the woods. The log cabins provide a really lovely comfy setting for bridal preparations with ample space for everyone to relax and enjoy their morning.
Amy and her bridal party were already being pampered by the amazing Yorkshire Wedding hair artist Kirsty at Novia. Her work is truly beautiful with every single member of the bridal party looking nothing short of perfect. Kirsty was working alongside Natural bridal make up Artist Yorkshire based Jess Pacey they worked together brilliantly perfecting the bridal party. The girls all looked flawless.
Just across the road, Luke was in another of the holiday lodges at Griffon Forest. He was with his groomsmen and parents. The boys spent a little time there before heading over to the wedding ceremony at Sandburn Hall.
Amy arrived with her Dad and bridesmaids and made her grand entrance into the stunning oak beamed ceremony room. With the amazing views out over the grounds, this has to be one of the best things about weddings at Sandburn Hall.
Luke waited at the end of the aisle for Amy to arrive, the daylight poured in through the huge windows which helped to create the most beautiful natural light wedding photographs.
With the amazing Yorkshire wedding venue stylists Shindig events attending the venue in the morning to decorate the stunning high ceilings and provide the flowers for the day, it was absolutely perfect. No matter what direction I was pointing, the images looked stunning.
We are always spoilt for choice for wedding photographs at Sandburn hall because they have so many locations available. With the rose garden and woodland it is an absolute pleasure to photograph a wedding here.
Following the drinks reception in the bar area we headed back upstairs to the main room. The room was transformed for the wedding breakfast. The decor took everybody by suprise. Weddings at Sandburn Hall York genuinely do have the wow factor. It really was breathtaking!
Throughout the wedding breakfast and into the evening reception, Amy & Luke hired Stuart – the wedding painter to create a masterpiece on canvas. The first one captured the wedding breakfast and the other was first dance. Such a unique keepsake of their day.
I had the most amazing day with Luke and Amy capturing their wedding at Sandburn Hall in York. If you would like further information on my wedding photography packages and prices please get in touch through my contact form for more information.
