Wedding Photography at Temple Newsam by Ben Cumming
A trusted Temple Newsam Wedding Photographer based in Yorkshire
I love to shoot weddings in my home City of Leeds. I travel all over Yorkshire, and further afield for weddings now, but it’s hard to think of a better wedding venue so close to the centre of the city.
Built in 1518, Temple Newsam is a Tudor-Jacobean mansion that is licensed to hold weddings and civil partnership ceremonies.
The house is set within 1500 acres of beautiful gardens and woodland that are an amazing choice for your day. Given the stunning surroundings and magnificence of the mansion, it is the perfect setting for your special day.
Temple Newsam House
The house oozes with grandeur – it has all the space and elegance you’ll need to host your big wedding. It also has closed-off sections to keep your wedding day intimate.
It’s almost as if you have your own personal stately home set within the heart of West Yorkshire. Your Leeds wedding simply could not look more spectacular than in this magnificent setting.
There is a South Terrace that is just perfect for drinks receptions, allowing you and your wedding guests to take in the spectacular countryside and surroundings.
It’s hard to believe you’re just a short ride from Leeds City Centre, making it a convenient wedding setting too.
Services available at Temple Newsam House
The property is licensed to conduct weddings and civil partnership ceremonies in three beautiful rooms of the house: the Great Hall, Dining Room, and Still Room. The ceremony room will be decorated with truly historic materials.
The bride and groom will have access to the house’s main courtyard and grand entrance, as well as the South Terrace with views of the park.
The exquisite view of the countryside is complemented by an unparalleled backdrop made up of breathtaking historical properties.
Why I love photographing at this venue
As an experienced wedding photographer, Temple Newsam House is one of my favourite venues to capture. One of the memorable spots is the stairway just behind the great hall. It’s perfect for Bride and Groom Portraits and even the main Wedding Group Photo, capturing your stunning shots with your best friends and family.
You will be spoilt for choice for options in your wedding day album and you’re certain to look back with fondness at memories you’ll treasure forever.
You’re guaranteed that the weather won’t spoil your wedding pictures too with so many photo opportunities within the building.
I currently hold a PfCO to use my drone commercially on weddings too. As a Temple Newsam Wedding Photographer, I’m able to get some amazing shots from the air of this stunning wedding venue.
If you’re looking for your Leeds wedding day to have the country feel too, then I think you are hard-pressed to find a better wedding venue than Temple Newsam for your photography needs. Being so close to Leeds city centre, it’s tough to imagine a more ideal venue.
More of the same from me.
