In October last year I had the pleasure of joining Hannah and Tom and photograph their beautiful Cusworth Hall wedding. If you’re from Doncaster then you know the place. I love this his 18th-century Grade I listed country house in Cusworth not just for being one of the best wedding venues in Doncaster. We spend a lot of our family time at Cusworth Park and I know it throughout. Back to the wedding then…

Cusworth Hall Wedding

This is how it happened in Hannah’s own words:

‘We met whilst both working for Sugar Ray’s (pizza takeaway) and both at school. We have been together ever since, attended the same University and watched one another grow. In 2015 Tom proposed to me in my childhood home.

In 2018 we decided it was the right time to get married. We had both finished University and were ready to get ahead with our life plans. We were quite uncertain about most of the details for what we wanted our wedding to be but all we knew was that we wanted to get married with as little fuss as possible.

We chose local businesses and tried to make everything as intimate/ fuss free as possible.’

Everything came together perfectly on the day. The weather was great. Everybody managed to attend and everything ran as smoothly as a wedding could run and Hannah’s Grandad gave her away.

Hannah and Tom had their ceremony in Cusworth Hall and then went next door to the 1086 Brewery where they had speeches and a rustic buffet supplied by local businesses at the Doncaster Market. After a few hours the couple said their goodbyes and drove away to the Yorkshire Dales where they had hired a cottage; it had a Wood- fired Hot Tub with the most amazing view. Just perfect!

Michal (our photographer) certainly added character on the day, jumping into bushes to get the perfect shot and making us feel really comfortable. He was more than accommodating to our wishes and exceeded our expectations. We didn’t have the most conventional wedding but it was certainly perfect for us- Michal’s photos help remind us of the most special day.
