Cass and rich in Bolton Abbey

A New Wedding Venue..

Last November Cassandra & Rich contacted me last minute with just over two weeks to go before their wedding in Harrogate  Yorkshire and they asked me if I was available. It’s not unusual for couples to decide later on in the planning process to have a Wedding video, however just two weeks before the wedding is a new record for me. As it turned out I was available and having not  as yet filmed any wedding in Harrogate in Yorkshire I was keen to capture their day for them in a Cinematic Style Wedding Film. It was a cold November day, in fact if felt much more like January than November but Cass and Rich were brave and more than willing to go out for a photo and video shoot in and around Bolton Abbey. The gorgeous surroundings came out looking really nice in their wedding film; you can view the trailer here:



The Tithe Barn

The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey, I learned from the Photographer, Paul Joseph, was a newish wedding venue. This large space is ideal for couples looking for a wedding venue that has rustic charm but also is well thought out. It is also large enough to accommodate a large wedding gathering while at the same time cosy enough to not feel cold and vacuous. The candlelit Chandeliers amongst the other candles that illuminated the venue created a stunning atmosphere.

The Kitchen has this amazing Grill which is like a feature at this venue and as the guest are entering the Ceremony room you can see in the distance at the other end of the venue the flames from the Grill- it really is quite magical, you can see this in Cass & Rich’s wedding video trailer here. The staff there were very attentive to the wedding party and even ourselves – photographers and videographer-  in that we got fed which is always a bonus.

A Family of Four…

When I was chatting with Cass and Rich a couple of weeks before their wedding day it became apparent that the couple’s two little Sausage Dogs were like their children and they seemed quite upset that they couldn’t bring along the Dogs to be part of their big day. I suggested they get a friend to bring them say a good hour or so before the ceremony to the venue so that they could be with Rich as he greeted the guests arriving and in that way be part of the wedding day and the video!  A few days after our chat Rich contacted me to let me know that it had been arranged and that the Dogs would be there an hour before the Ceremony and then whipped away just before Cassandra arrived with her Brides Maids. It all went to plan and they made it into the film and everybody fussed over these two gorgeous little Dogs.

I love it when you can add into a couples Wedding Film things that are not only personal but also important to them and just a little bit different, as this was.


Bolton Abbey in Harrogate Yorkshire is a great setting for a Wedding and The Tithe Barn certainly a venue I would recommend to couples looking for something a little bit different.
