Getting married at the Wentworth Woodhouse is an truly amazing experience, being a wedding photographer there is incredible! I can’t think of many wedding venues in South Yorkshire that match the jaw dropping beauty and architecture of this place. Kerry and Mirja picked a special place for their wedding.

Wentworth Woodhouse wedding

Wentworth Woodhouse in South Yorkshire, considered to be the largest private residence in the UK and one of the largest houses in Europe, provided a spectacular setting for their big day. Wentworth Woodhouse has proven to be a great wedding venue not only for Sheffield based couples but for people from around the Yorkshire area.

Kerry and Mirja chose the hall with its magnificent stairs for their wedding ceremony. The evenings celebrations were held in the ballroom upstairs. I was thrilled when the couple  contacted me enquiring if I was available for their wedding day.

Being a boeing pilot, Mirja, had to arrive for her wedding by air and cheered by waiting guests landed outside the Grade 1 listed country house. Kerry, who loves horses, arrived in a luxurious 4 Friesian horse drawn carriage to join Mirja at the bottom of the aisle.

When the ceremony concluded drinks and canapés were served and guests enjoyed the perfect afternoon whilst soaking up the stunning architecture of their surroundings. Mirja is originally from Germany and had a lot of family and loved ones that had literally travelled half of Europe for this wedding.

Now it was time for some couples photos before the guests were seated for the wedding breakfast. The grounds of Wentworth Woodhouse really spoil you, there is so much to shoot but so little time. We visited a few rooms and made use of some beautiful window light there before we headed outside. The open field provided lots of opportunities and the venue in the background looked amazing. We went outside once again after it got dark. This time it was to take a few night time photos at the top of the stairs. The venue was illuminated beautifully and we used some of this ambient light with a bit of flash to create some gorgeous night time wedding photos.

Ballroom wedding breakfast

Onto the wedding breakfast! The looks on guests faces as they entered the ballroom for the first time really sums up this wedding venue. It is literally jaw dropping. Even if you are not planning a wedding there I would definitely recommend visiting, it’s incredible. So after the wedding breakfast it was onto the speeches and of course a slice of wedding cake! Later on a DJ played music and the guests partied the night away.

The entire day from start to finish was amazing and I would like to thank Kerry and Mirja for booking me as their wedding photographer. I hope you have a long and happy life together!
