A Monk Fryston Hall Wedding - A Venue With A Wealth Of History
Parts of Monk Fryston Hall date back over 800 years and evidence of this history can be seen in the form of original stonework with huge Inglenook fireplaces and vaulted ceilings in parts. When the Bishop of York gave land to Benedictine Monks in the 12th – 13th century Monk Fryston Hall became a monastery. In the 18th century the owners of Monk Fryston Hall added a zoo, an aviary and created a boating lake together with a replica of Lucerne Bridge along with carvings from the “Rhyme of The Ancient Mariner”. Whilst the lake and bridge remains today the zoo and aviary are no longer in existence, the gardens however are a delight with stone steps, arches and a fountain we are spoilt for choice for fabulour formal and more casual wedding images here.

The Box Tree – A Chic Yorkshire Venue
This small renowned restaurant has been a part of Ilkley since the early sixties. Now owned by husband and wife team Simon and Rena Gueller, the Box Tree continues to aim to be the best.
The Box Tree is one of the oldest buildings in Ilkley. Originally a Yorkshire stone farmhouse dating from 1720, home to a generation of gentleman farmers from Denton, the house subsequently bought by businessman, Septimus Wray – the owner of the Bridge House Gardens. This period saw the property developed for business and it was in the late nineteenth century that box trees were first planted in the front garden and thus became known as Box Tree House. During later years the Box Tree became both an antique shop and a tearoom, before the potential for a fine restaurant in Ilkley was recognised.
The Dorchester – quite possibly the finest of London Wedding Venues!
The Dorchester Hotel is quite possibly one of London’s finest hotels. With an enviable reputation to uphold the London Dorchester is one of our favourite venues for beautiful wedding photography.
“As we walked through the promenade with David and Nicole the pianist noticed us coming and stopped what he was playing and switched to “Here Comes The Bride” and all the guests taking tea stopped and gave David and Nicole a round of applause. He did the same on the way back and people congratulated them as we passed. Little touches like that make a Dorchester wedding special. Every member of staff seems to go above and beyond the call of duty to make the whole Dorchester experience unforgettable.”
