What a beautiful wedding venue Markington Hall is, an absolutely perfect place to get married. Erin and her bridesmaids spent most of the morning getting ready in Harrogate, meeting up with friends and family and as I do with every wedding I photograph I arrived really early to capture what was going on. The wedding ceremony was held at Markington Hall and was performed by my good friend Jan Shilito. The wedding party drank champagne and ate canapes on the lawn and later on in the day everybody walked across the bridge to Copper Beech Glade (part of the estate at Markington Hall) for a dance off and a bake off ! Can I just say I had a slice of every single cake in the competition and I could not make a decision at all, every single cake was as good as the other one. Later on in the evening we created a DIY photobooth which was a real hit with all the guests. Erin and Ben had the most amazing wedding day and so did their friends and family.

Markington Hall wedding venue
Markington Hall is situated in the small village of Markington in the beautiful countryside of North Yorkshire. Markington Hall and the site it stands on has a long and interesting history. Markington or Merchinton (as it was referred to in the Domesday Book) dates back to the Bronze Age and today there are still signs of the Barrows constructed during this time. In 1069 there was no Markington Hall but a fortified hunting lodge which was situated in the Forest of Knaresborough. This was later ransacked and burnt to the ground. The first hall was built around 1285-1309. In 1309 Henry de Markington was listed as being Lord of Markington Manor.In 1731 the estate was taken over by the Wilberforce family who still own it today. The head of the house is the great, great, great, great grandson of William Wilberforce (1759-1833) who owned the house but never actually lived in it because of his tireless and selfless campaign for a law to be passed in parliament banning the slave trade.
Markington Hall wedding photographer
I am guessing you have landed on this page because you are getting married in North Yorkshire and you are looking for a Markington Hall wedding photographer. I am a well established Wedding photographer and I have been photographing weddings throughout the United Kingdom for over the last ten years. You will put so much time into organising your wedding, you need a photographer that will work just as hard to capture all the moments that matter. As you can see from my portfolio I observe what is happening and document it using natural light where possible to create beautiful, emotive photographs. We can arrange a time for portraits in the evening but apart from that I just capture the wedding exactly how it happens. It does not matter how big or small your wedding will be or where it is, I would love to be there.

Thank you for your time.
