The Priests House Wedding Photographer

Are You Looking for a Priests House Wedding Photographer?

My name is Ben Cumming. I am a Priests House wedding photographer. I have worked throughout the North Yorkshire area for over ten years. The weddings that are held at the Priests House are always well organized and extremely impressive. As you will know, the beauty of the venue and the Yorkshire countryside is second to none.

The Priests House sits in close proximity to Barden Tower and offers an exquisite view of the countryside. The venue is rich in history. Romance and charm are abundant throughout the entire venue. No matter where you go on the property, you will find beauty and grace that is centuries old. As a qualified aerial photographer, I am able to get magnificent images from almost every angle to capture all of the intricacies of both the Tower and the House.

North Yorkshire Weddings Are Amazingly Beautiful!

North Yorkshire wedding ceremonies are amazingly beautiful no matter where they are held. One of my favourite venues is The Priests House. It is one of many beautiful wedding venues throughout the entire Yorkshire area. Its rich history and beautiful décor make it a favourite among brides and bridesmaids who want the finest of everything to be perfect. I am honoured to be able to do wedding photography at this exceptional venue.

The History of The Priests House

The construction of Barden Tower was the work of the Shepherd Lord from 1485 to 1536. At that time, the Chapel and The Priests House had already been completed. The Tower, Chapel, and The Priests House were captured in 1536 through the Pilgrimage of Grace. The property was returned to its rightful owner, Lady Ann Clifford, in the early 1600s.

After Lady Clifford’s passing, her heirs neglected the property. The Priests House along with the rest of the property eventually ended up in the hands of the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. The Chapel was eventually restored as well in 2016. The Priests House has been restored to much of its former glory and, for the last several years, has been used to help couples create their own magical fairy tale wedding stories.

Hello! My Name is Ben Cumming!

I thoroughly love my job as a North Yorkshire wedding photographer! It is my passion! I have over 10 years of experience behind the camera. During those many years, I have had the pleasure and honour of being able to shoot weddings in some of the most beautiful and historic venues. The Priests House is one of my absolute favourites!

Being able to be a photographer at the Priests House has been amazing. Its rich history can be seen in every corner and at every turn. Looking out at the vast Yorkshire dales countryside, it is easy to imagine centuries of history being played out before your eyes.

I take great pride in being asked to photograph many of these historic locations. When they are used as wedding venues, it’s like the wisdom of the past looking over to the innocence of a future unknown.

As you embark on your new journey as husband and wife, it is my hope that the images I create will remind you of a moment stopped in time where past met present and two hearts became one.

My Wedding Packages

My wedding packages are meant to provide you with exactly what you are looking for in wedding photography. My Silver and Gold packages are both very popular. View them carefully and become familiar with what is included in each one. My recommendation for the Priests House is the Gold package. This offers you the most options and provides coverage for the entire day from start to finish.

I always arrive early depending on how much preparation will be needed for Priests House photography. My drone will be at the ready as well. This will also ensure that I get photos of your guests as they begin to arrive as well as any other photos you would want me to take.

The beauty of photography is being able to capture emotion and the split-second glances between the bride and groom. From your wedding to the reception and beyond, my purpose is to document as much as possible so that no element of your epic love story is left out.
