I absolutely love photographing and filming weddings at Bowcliffe Hall as there are so many opportunities to take beautiful wedding photographs and films. The photo's that I've shared here from Laura and Andy's stunning wedding really show what a wonderful venue this is....
Filled with history, Bowcliffe Hall is a grade two listed Georgian building which has different areas where you could hold your wedding ceremony dependant on the size of your celebrations, from the breath taking ballroom to the amazing Blackburn wing (named after Robert Blackburn who was an aviation pioneer) which looks out over the stunning Yorkshire countryside and is perfect for an evening party and the backdrop for some amazing wedding photographs and videos!
The luxurious colours used to decorate this fantastic venue lend themselves to gorgeous wedding photography and films and this stylish wedding venue works perfectly alongside my relaxed style of photography and videography but also has the WOW factor you need for award winning bridal and couple portraits.
Laura and Andy's wedding day was all about having a brilliant party with all their family and friends after having to re-shedule their celebrations twice due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Andy gave all the credit to Laura for organising such a wonderful celebration. The couple, who have been together since they were at college clearly had their family and close friends at the forefront of their minds when they planned their wedding and this resulted in photographs and a wedding film that is full of emotion - from the first sight Laura's Dad had of her in her dress to the speeches and the fun and hugs on the dance floor this was a truly brilliant day resulting in wonderful wedding photos full of all the key elements that are important to me: Moment - Composition - Light. The sun even came out just in time for us to capture some epic shots on the Bowcliffe Hall Estate before the party really got going and we captured some beautiful drone footage of the couple and their guests on the balcony in The Blackburn Wing.
The team at Bowcliffe Hall did a fantastic job with the organisation and planning of this wedding day and the food was also exceptional! Thank you again and I'm looking forward to being back again in the next few months to photograph and film more stunning weddings.

“ Wow! The photos and the film are amazing! We absolutely love them!

Bowcliffe Hall Wedding Photos
Preparations usually start in the stunning Morning Room at Bowcliffe Hall and the stylish warm tones in the decor and natural light result in gorgeous photographs and videos in my relaxed natural style and make a great back drop for some real and emotional moments with close family and friends. This is also a great space if you would like some portraits in the window to make full use if the beautiful light
The Groom preparation photos can start anywhere from an impressive arrival in a Range Rover to drinks in The Drivers Club (private members club).
Bowcliffe Hall Wedding Ceremony
Wedding ceremonies take place in the light and airy Bowcliffe Room which is full of original period details. There are double doors out onto the grounds that are perfect for your confetti photographs and this leads out onto a sunny south facing terrace which is wonderful for your drinks reception photographs
When it's time to make your entrance, the Yorkshire countryside has some fantastic scenery to do it in style and the courtyard is a great place to get out our drone for some aerial shots!
This is a great point in the day to grab 10/15 minutes for (optional) group photos and or bridal and couple portraits. Some couple like to keep the photography 100% natural and some couples love a few minutes away on their own to create some beautiful and romantic photographs and also grab a few shots with family and friends. The day is yours to shape it as you would like. I also love a romantic sunset photograph and so these photos can also be taken just before sunset and if there is heavy cloud I have a magical bag of tricks that will create some breath taking effects. Whatever the weather throws at us we will make the best of it if you are happy to embrace the elements! Equally if you'd prefer not to risk the rain there are many opportunities inside to create some very special wedding photographs and films.
If you are planning a marquee the lawns behind Bowcliffe Hall are perfect for this but alternatively the impressive Ballroom is an amazing alternative with it's jaw draw dropping chandelier, ceiling gilded with 23.5 carat gold and a beautiful art deco bar. With views out onto the colourful grounds this room never fails to deliver epic wedding photography and videography.
The award winning Blackburn Wing is a 2000sq ft tree house shaped like an aeroplane wing and sits within the beautiful woodland in The Bowcliffe Hall Estate. There are fantastic balconies that look out onto the Yorkshire countryside and will really give your wedding photos and video the wow factor, particularly if we use our drone for some aerial photos and films. There are fields and lawns and woodland nearby so we can take some gorgeous and romantic photographs as the sunsets before the party gets started.
