Outdoor ceremony, elegant period rooms, secret vaults - offering it all for weddings.

Hirst Priory is a stunning wedding venue, offering so many options for all of the different parts of your day. It’s easy to see why it’s a popular choice. Even if you know someone else who had their wedding held here, your guests can be treated to an amazing and unique day.

Top 5 things about Hirst Priory


  1. So many ceremony options! In the house, in a tipi, in the vaults, in the woodland.
  2. Did I mention outdoor wedding ceremony? This needs a mention of it's own. A gorgeous spot between the trees.
  3. Perfect rooms for bridal prep in the morning. Bright and welcoming with plenty of space for everyone.
  4. Enough rooms for the main bridal party to stay over. No late night taxis!
  5. A fantastic team headed up by the powerhouse that is Hazel.

Being local means I know all the secret spots for photograph's whatever the season.

I’ve been photographing weddings for many years, and shot my first Hirst Priory wedding ceremony when Hazel first began renovating the priory. You could see there was so much potential at Hirst Priory, and in a few short years it has been transformed into a stunning and bright wedding venue.

In a location so full of history, Hirst Priory is a wedding venue with a story, that every wedding day adds to. The images that can be captured for any Hirst Priory wedding photographer are endless, and the challenge lies in deciding which part of the house or venue grounds to head on the site. I hear so many positive things from couples and guests who visit this far edge of Yorkshire.

Lauren and Richard, Outdoor Ceremony

As Lauren and Richard’s wedding photographer, we spent the morning of the wedding at Hirst Priory, whilst my second photographer was with the groom at home. They were married in an outdoor ceremony in the woodland next to the venue. Their first dance as a married couple was pretty awesome, as was the party! Have a look at their blog post to see more.

Ceremony in the woodland

Wedding in the vaults - Miles & Abbie

Abbie and Mile’s wedding was a small vaults hirst priory wedding, held in what would be the basement or wine cellar. Their wedding photography was so intimate, with an amazing candlelit ceremony. It was an honour to be part of. They had their speeches and confetti in the hall with a brightly lit Christmas tree to match the season. Abbie’s bouquet was truly stunning, with one particular photo of her blowing up my Instagram.

Small wedding

Charlotte & Andrew - Summer wedding

Charlotte and Andrew’s beautiful wedding ceremony was also at Hirst Priory wedding venue, with the rest of their day held elsewhere. It was a fun and relaxed day as Charlotte was 9 months pregnant, but this didn’t matter to her energy levels!

Summer wedding

Couples photos in the vaults - Julia & Alex

As Julia and Alex’s Hirst Priory wedding photographer, they made Hirst Priory wedding their own for their day. Wedding photography was a key part of their day (the dream phrase of any wedding photographer). They used the venue for their ceremony and photos with guests.

Time to party - I stay way past the first dance!


My unique feature as a wedding photographer, is that I stay until the end of the night as standard. Most photographers leave after the first dance, but in my opinion after this when the mood of your day changes again. This absolutely should be covered! I get on the dance floor and have a wander outside and catch everyone letting their hair down. It’s such a privilege to have the opportunity to see out a full wedding day with you both!
