Wynyard Hall

For a long time now I have rated Wynyard Hall as one of the best wedding Venues in the North East. This blog is to tell you why. Remember I am looking at this through the eyes of a photographer.

Firstly Wynyard Hall is easy to get too, just a few minutes from the A19/A689 junction.

First sight of the Hall leaves you gasping for air, its is stunningly beautiful, set in acres of lush lawns, fringed by mature tress of all types and then lovingly wrapped by a beautiful lake. The majestic colums at the front of the building make for great arrival shots. Theres also something special about the noise gravel makes under foot, or under tyre. The rear of the Hall is the patio area looking down towards the lake and further beyond the open contryside. As you can see there are plenty of areas for your wedding or event photographs.

Weddings - Wynyard Hall even has its own chapel. The stain glass windows, the decoration, it is all fantastic, maybe a little dark inside but modern cameras will have no problems.

But what if its raining? Good question because there are lots of great venues with outside locations but then lack the same detail and qualities inside should the weather not be on your side. Wynyard Hall is not like the others. it is as photogenic inside as it is outside. The decoration, the great rooms, the furnishings all add a luxury feel and add an extra dimension to your wedding photo reportoire.

Ever been to a fantastic venue, but felt the staff were looking down their noses at you? The staff here are attentive, patient and friendly. I had great evidence of this on Friday at a recent wedding there. The Bride wanted a shot from the other side of the lake across to the Hall, but there was no way the bridal party, me and my assistant and the video guy could all get across. To the rescue a modern day Knight, Sir John Hall, offers us all a lift across in his freshly valeted people carrier. A kindness I shall always remember - the bride and groom will too!

If you are thinking of getting married in the North East and you want your day to be special then do please take a look at Wynyard Hall. Be warned though, that they are well booked up so get in early - or consider having your wedding on a Friday, Sunday or Monday.

Dont forget to tell them Duncan sent you!
