The Oakwood at Ryther is one of my favourite wedding venues in Yorkshire and we are proud to have worked here since it opened and also to be one of the few photographers and videographers that they recommend.

This wonderful wedding venue which is set within the Yorkshire countryside and used to be a family farm. It has been stylishly converted into one of the best wedding venues in Yorkshire. You have exclusive access to the whole venue for 3 whole days giving you plenty of time to prepare, enjoy and party and then recover from your wedding day! 

One of my favourite things about this wedding venue is that everything has been thought about and designed around your wedding day. There are 2 beautifully designed barns and on site  accommodation for up to 32 of your friends and family to stay in for the whole weekend. This space features a brilliant communal area where the wedding party can all meet for breakfast on the big day and also enjoy a few drinks the evening before! The ceremony barn has the perfect amount of natural light with the addition of spherical sparkling lights that hang from the barn roof and look perfect in your wedding photographs. The Old Grain Store has everything you will need to enjoy yourselves for the rest of the day from a well stocked bar to a kitchen for your caters and space upstairs to sit and relax and watch events unfold on the dance floor! The interiors (and exteriors!) feel luxurious and lend themselves to gorgeous wedding photography and films. This stylish but relaxed 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.

Bridal preparations usually start in the beautifully designed bridal suite and the stylish dark walls and natural light result in stunning photographs in my relaxed documentary style and make a great back drop for some real moments with close family and friends. I also like to use the light in this room for some bridal portraits (if you've asked for these - my style is relaxed and natural but I also love a gorgeous portrait too!).

The Groom preparation photos can start anywhere from the communal kitchen area to cricket and games outside and preparations in one of the perfectly design bedrooms.

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!

The ceremony barn at The Oakwood at Ryther has lots of natural light and fantastic overhead lights that look like fireworks are going off during your wedding ceremony and add a nice touch to your wedding photos. Photographs from the back also look fantastic against the golden yellow fairy lights and your flowers and candles.

If you are wanting lots of space for colourful and fun confetti photographs, the path from the wedding ceremony barn is great for this! The wedding barn is also a great backdrop for group photographs or alternatively we have used the perfect views onto open fields too.

This is a great point in the day to grab 10/15 minutes for 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. 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 done 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.

When the time comes to celebrate your wedding day with you family and friends The Old Grain store creates the perfect back drop with it's original beams, luxury decor and chandeliers. I've photographed weddings here with over 130 guests and smaller more intimate weddings and they have all been stunning. From emotional speeches to hilarious speeches on the stairs to dancing outside and inside there are so many opportunities for brilliant moments, photographs and videos here.
