A beautiful spring Thicket Priory wedding

Thicket Priory is the stuff wedding dreams are made of! (And I wish it had been a venue when I got married!) Set on the outskirts of York, this stunningly romantic country house has it all! 18 acres of stunning grounds, 35 unique bedrooms, a pond and a choice of 3 places to have the ceremony! Oh and did I mention, it’s an exclusive hire venue, so it’s yours for the weekend! LUSH!

This blog celebrates the best of wedding photography at Thicket Priory!

The Buckingham Suite

We photographers LOVE a light and airy Bridal suite for those all important morning prep shots. And The Buckingham Suite simply does not disappoint. With beautiful furnishings, and plenty of space for your entire bridal party, you’ll be spoilt for choice for stunning Bridal Prep photos.

The Morning Room

One of three options on site for the civil ceremony to be held, the morning room can also be used as a smaller event space. With seating for up to 140 guests, it’s the perfect indoor option for the ceremony. And the fireplace is the stuff of dreams for us wedding professionals to get excited about!

The grounds

With so much to explore in the grounds of Thicket Priory, I’d highly recommend setting plenty of time aside for your couple portraits! This fairy tale setting really does have it all!

The ballroom

This stunning room boasts dazzling chandeliers, beautiful fireplaces and lots of light! (You can tell I’m a photographer, can’t you, always talking about the light!) Seating up to 240 guests, it’s the perfect Wedding Breakfast space.

The hallway and the staircase!

Often overlooked but not at Thicket Priory. This beautiful wooden staircase is a staple feature for any Thicket Priory Wedding Photographer!

The chapel

Also an option for a slightly more compact ceremony space, Thicket Priory’s chapel has a stunning stained glass window and traditional wooden pews.

The Gryffin Bar

This wonderful period wood panelled and (most importantly) well stocked bar has an an open fire, a selection of comfortable seats, eclectic décor and a gorgeous terrace outside.
