For a wedding photographer Worksop can be a great location to photograph as their are some beautiful venues around along with some stunningly beautiful woodland and countryside. Here are a few from around the area if you are looking for ideas:
While Clumber Park doesn't offer up itself as a wedding venue, they are happy for photographs to be taken in their grounds. This is a great idea if you are getting married in a nearby location and have time between the ceremony and evening reception to venture somewhere beautiful. If you have hired a wedding car it is also an ideal opportunity to take if for a spin and get away from the wedding for a relaxing breather and to get some great photographs of your day.
A historic country house wedding venue set in 800 acres of countryside near Worksop. Close to the border of South Yorkshire and Nottinghamshire. The house and grounds here make for a wonderful backdrop for wedding photos and if the season is right the woodland walk can full of snowdrops or bluebells.
Hazel Gap Barn
One of a number of barn wedding venues part of the Cripps & Co portfolio. The barn is part of the Welbeck estate and is located near Worksop in the town Edwinstowe. It is a dramatic red-brick barn and can be used for civil wedding ceremonies or be host to your wedding celebrations after a church ceremony.
The Old Vicarage at Elkesley
Situated on the outskirts of the village of Elkesley close to Worksop and Retford in Nottinghamshire. The 17th century Old Vicarage hosts civil ceremonies and partnerships. There is a beautiful stream running through the grounds you cross over a bridge (or the stepping stones if you're feeling brave) to the yurt which plays host to wedding breakfasts and receptions.
The Pumping House
Near the town of Ollerton near Worksop is a grade II listed property called The Pumping House. A distinctive rustic looking but beautiful venue it is great to photograph weddings at. There is plenty of natural light flowing in through the large arched windows giving a beautiful look to photos taken there. It is also set in the heart of Sherwood Forest so the outdoor scenery is naturally stunning too.
Thoresby Riding Hall
This is a great venue for larger weddings given the size of this former riding school, yet it has all the rustic charm of a converted barn. The location is on Thoresby Park and is located about 8 miles south of Worksop. Wedding photography at this venue is joy with the great views around, lots of picturesque spots for photos and the beautiful soaring brick arched hall. It is also a great venue to choose for a wedding with a large number of guests as they can accommodate 120 guests for the ceremony, 180 for dinner and up to 200 in the evening.
The Lion Hotel
Located right in the centre Worksop this lovely hotel venue, part of the Best Western chain can cater for up to 110 guests for civil weddings, partnerships and blessings. Ceremonies take place in the beautiful oak beamed high ceiling wedding suite. The venue also provides a dedicated wedding planner and co-ordinator to make sure everything is personalised and arranged just how you want it to be for your big day.
My wedding photography style tends to be less formal than most photographers, allowing you to enjoy your day with your family and friends. To see more information about me and my wedding photography style visit my About page.
In my portfolio you will see a little more of the style of wedding photographs I try to deliver. It is mainly a documentary style to allow you to enjoy your day while I capture the best moments. I don't mind doing some set up shots of you too. If the time of year is right for the lighting it is always good to get some golden hour shots. This is the hour before sunset when the natural light is at it's softest and best.
