What a venue, being a Priory Barn and Cottages wedding photographer, in such fantastic light, was an absolute dream. If you are looking for relaxed and not overdosed photography then please do get in contact
Located close to the market town of Wetherby, Yorkshire. A stunning converted barn set in acres of tranquil countryside is ideal for a small-scale wedding celebration of up to 150 people. Priory Barn and its cottages are located in a 12-century courtyard which is great for wedding photography. Attached to the back of the barn is a marque adding more space and a pretty funky-looking dance floor. Fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies in the barn top level or outside in the stunning courtyard if the day will allow.
I hope you like the photography below. Congrats to Laura and Simon on a happy marriage! It was such a great, special and fun-filled day.
NO CHEESE DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY
I’ve had the pleasure of photographing weddings at Priory Barn and Cottages several times. Because it provides so many gorgeous photo backdrops, the location is one of my favourites to shoot at. A wedding photoshoot would be ideal in this picturesque setting, which also features a historic barn and quaint cottages. Having some great arches and shapes to have portraits under.
The courtyard area outside of Priory Barn and Cottages is one of my favourite places to take pictures. The courtyard is a lovely location that works well for group photos or candid pictures of guests interacting. The rustic stone walls and wooden ceiling beams serve as a stunning backdrop. The upper level is a fantastic launch point for guests to throw confetti from. I would say this is one of the things that the Priory has become known for. Definitely a nice change to the more traditional confetti tunnel. It also displayed the couple’s name which added a different element to the photos. Really funny moments of the guests swapping the letters to spell different things. A real photographer’s dream!
The area’s surrounding countryside is another fantastic location for pictures. Numerous opportunities for stunning photographs are provided by the corn fields adjacent to the venue. The landscape surrounding Priory Barn and Cottages never fails to make for an interesting backdrop for photographs. The barn has been expertly restored, with special care taken to maintain the original features while adding contemporary comforts for visitors. Priory Barn has been in the same family since the 1920’s. Situated close to the family’s working farm. They even make vodka and gin on-site which I’m sure is ideal for a wedding venue.
PRIORY COTTAGES IN WETHERBY HAS EVERYTHING
The venue offers a number of charming cottages for visitors to stay in addition to the barn. The cottages are tastefully furnished and provide all the modern conveniences a visitor might require, including fully functional kitchens, cosy living rooms, and roomy bedrooms. Couples or families looking to stay close to the wedding venue while taking in the tranquil countryside surroundings will find the cottages to be ideal.
Overall, Priory Barn and Cottages is a gorgeous wedding venue that provides everything a couple could want for their special day. The idyllic location for a romantic and small-scale wedding celebration is created by the lovely barn, the charming cottages, and the tranquil countryside surroundings. I always look forward to shooting at this lovely location as a wedding photographer and capturing the unique moments between the happy couple and their guests.
