Weddings at Whitley Hall, a beautiful wedding venue in Sheffield

WEDDINGS AT WHITLEY HALL

A BEAUTIFUL AND HISTORIC WEDDING VENUE IN SHEFFIELD

(Scroll down for photographs)

I’ve photographed quite a few weddings at Whitley Hall, one of the oldest and most historic wedding venues in Sheffield. And it’s certainly one of the most beautiful.

As a wedding photographer my experience of this stunning historic house goes back quite a few years and it really is a favourite. Just one look at the incredible facade of this 16th century house and you can soon see why! Not only is Whitley Hall a wonderful venue for your wedding, it makes a fabulous backdrop for your photographs,

Situated on the rural northern edge of Sheffield, the present day house dates back to the 1580s. It has a history in farming and, for a while served as a boys’ boarding school. It become a restaurant in 1969 and has gradually expanded as a hotel ever since.  I just know it for the gorgeous weddings that I have been lucky enough to photograph there!

What is it that makes Whitley Hall so special?

The  name Whitley Hall is incredibly evocative to me. I think of the cries of the very tame peacocks strutting around the beautifully kept grounds. I think of the small lake, the gardens and the historic well-preserved interior. But above all, I think of how privileged I am to have been the photographer at some delightful weddings there.

The staff at Whitley Hall are always friendly with nothing being too much trouble, whilst so too are the registrars that I’ve worked with there.

It really has been such a pleasure to go back through the archives of some of the weddings at Whitley Hall that I’ve photographed, in order to find a selection of photographs to show you here . If you’ve enjoyed looking through these, do please have a look at my gallery page . Or for a quick look there’s always good old Instagram!
