Where do I start with Askham Hall?! I absolutely LOVE this place. I did my first shoot there a fair few years ago, before they started “doing” weddings, it was a flower fairy theme and I still love the photos of my little girl running around the grounds looking all ethereal.
I often get asked where my favourite places to shoot are, and Askham is definitely right up there. It just has so much scope for the whole day. Even in bad weather and with the limited light that winter brings you really are spoilt for choice with locations, backdrops and little pockets of light. The gardens are magical – painstakingly planted and maintained but never overly manicured – both beautiful and wild. I pride myself on pretty much knowing what will pop up where in which season!
Add to all this one of the NICEST staff teams ever and ridiculously good food and drink (they just achieved a Michelin Star so you don’t need to take my word for it!) and you have a literally perfect wedding venue. Please make sure you invite me!!
