Crow Hill Wedding Photography

Crow Hill Wedding Photography Yorkshire

Crow Hill in Marden is a country house estate consisting of a main house and several cottages, a large marquee and well kept walled gardens. Located on the fringe of the Yorkshire Moors, the hosting, catering and hospitality rival any of the other wedding venues within reasonable distance.

Laura + Tom got married at Crow Hill in Marsden, a country house wedding venue set in the heart of West Yorkshire. The venue consists of the magnificent main house and also has a number of cottages on site that are available to hire for guests. There is a grand marquee that hosts the reception and evening celebrations and one of the best DJ’s Ive come across in my time photographing weddings is also available to make sure that your evening party goes with a bang.

I started the day with Laura and her bridal party and flitted between them and Tom and his groomsmen who were staying in one of the cottages. Crow Hill has the capacity to personalise your day, and so these guys hired an espresso bar which opened bright and early and so I joined the groomsmen at the bar and enjoyed shots of strong coffee with them, which is a great way to start any wedding day.

The ceremony room has a beautiful chandelier and is nicely illuminated by a large bay window which both add an aesthetic  to the photographs that I am able to take. After a quick ceremony a few formal shots were completed in the walled gardens and then the rest of the day unfolded at a leisurely pace with cocktails and canapés served from the marquee. I photographed one of the best men’s weddings and so was looking forward to the speeches in the run up to the wedding after the revelations at his; I wasn’t disappointed and neither were the guests.

Here is a small selection of images from the day that demonstrate the candid style of photos that I take at weddings.

Deborah + Richard got married at a catholic church in the centre of Huddersfield and held their reception at Crow Hill in Marsden, Yorkshire. Due to the layout of the property, with additional cottages on site, the wedding party stayed for the whole weekend, with both the bride and groom getting ready in adjacent houses. Having everybody in close proximity is a great opportunity for me as a photographer as it allows me to photograph both sides of the preparations as part of my c;clients wedding photography collections.

A lot of Deborah’s family had come over from Ireland and her dad even brought along his pubs resident band who were a great addition to the day. When I arrived in the morning the party from the night before was still going for some of the guests and this started off a fantastic day of celebrations, smiles and laughter – all the right ingredients for some brilliant wedding photography. The venue assists in this respect also as it has an array of locations to create any formal portraits and soft light spilling into the main house through its many windows. A photograph that I took of Deborah’s bridesmaid helping her put on her veil in the morning won an award with the AGWPJA of who I am an active member. This shot was taken against the large bay window in the bridal suite, which is a beautiful place to get ready before and to stay the night of your wedding.

The meal and evening reception take place in the onsite marque which has great soft lighting which enables me to get very clean photographs of the speeches using available light. The dance floor is also situated here and even has space for a band should you wish, however id recommend the resident DJ, Jeremy, who stands out from the many wedding suppliers I have worked with over the years.
