Bolton Abbey

Such a lovely venue for a photoshoot. Romantic backdrops and interesting features – its lovely to photograph at every time of year. It always look beautiful. At the heart of Bolton Abbey Estate lies the Priory Church and Ruins of an Augustinian Prioryin its beautiful riverside setting. The land was gifted to the Augustinian canons by Alice de Rumilly in 1154. With its stunning historic features on riverside location in the heart of Yorkshire this really is a perfect location for a romantic photoshoot. 

Take a look at some other beautiful Bolton Abbey Engagement Shoot’s on my blog;

There are several wedding venues within the Bolton Abbey Estate.

The Tithe Barn ; 

Built in the early 16th century the scale and beauty of this building often renders visitors speechless. Despite its size and commanding position overlooking the Priory Ruins, River Wharfe and Stepping Stones very few know of the Tithe Barn. This hidden gem measures 55m long providing space inside and out in abundance.

Originally the Priory Nave, where lay workers worshipped, it was saved from destruction during Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries and now serves as the local parish church.

The Priests House ;

Built in the early 16th century in the shadow of Barden Tower this historic venue guarantees a magical wedding celebration for all to share. This intimate venue offers a friendly and personal service.

Nestled on the edge of Strid Wood looking out across the River Wharfe it is clear why many couples choose to enjoy their wedding breakfast and or evening reception at the Cavendish Pavilion.
