Danby Castle Wedding Photography Yorkshire

Emma and Paul held their wedding at Danby Castle, a unique venue located on the North Yorkshire Moors, not too far from Whitby. I love being the photographer at weddings at this special venue; the staff make an exceptional effort to ensure the smooth running of the day and the grounds, building and location provide lots of opportunities for interesting wedding photography.

There are several holiday cottages in the surrounding area that offer accommodation for the bridal party and any friends and family that want to stay close by – Danby Castle also offers grounds for camping too and is customisable in so many ways, consequently its a very popular place so would recommend getting in touch with them to discuss your wedding day sooner rather than later.

I started the day photographing Emma and her bridal party’s preparations at one of the local cottages and then headed up to the castle in time to capture Emma’s arrival. Despite a bit of wind and rain, the castle is always warm and cosy which makes it the perfect place to host an intimate ceremony with your closest friends and family. Afterwards we did some family groups shots in the ceremony room before everyone sat down for the wedding breakfast and the speeches, which all happens in the marquee, which is attached to the dance floor and conveniently close to the bar.

In the evening we made a few portraits around the venue and its grounds before the night do commenced with the first dance, which is where I left everyone dancing the night away. Danby Castle has its own lighting, DJ and a stage for live music, so all evening entertainment is taken care of too.
