Rise Hall Wedding Photographer Beverley East Yorkshire

Yorkshire Wedding Photographer Tom Roberts, of Champagne Shutter Photography, at Rise Hall

Having previously lived in Beverley for six years, it was such a pleasant surprise to discover Rise Hall, 10 miles to the east, near Skirlaugh and Kingswood, Hull, tucked away down a tree lined driveway, only to reveal the magnificent golden Grecian style columns supporting the portico above the grand entrance hall.

This awe-inspiring wedding venue has the feeling of a beautiful art gallery or museum, with polished floors and a jaw-dropping palette and décor throughout. It’s really a gift for wedding photography!

With records dating back to 1066, and of tenants in the 1300s, the estate was owned by the crown between the 1400s and 1600s, before turning to private ownership. The present Hall was built between 1815-’20. It served as a base for searchlight officers during WWII before use as a school from the later ‘40s to the ‘80s, before use as a religious retreat until ’95. Bought by TV’s Sarah Beeny in 2001, she presented its restoration on Channel 4 in 2010, before selling it as a wedding venue in 2019.

Champagne Shutter Photography visited as a supplier at a Brides Up North wedding fayre. Rise Hall is one of 4 wedding venues with the Dine network, including Howsham Hall, near Malton, York and The Mansion at Roundhay Park, Leeds. Howsham is another stunning beauty I intend to visit and photograph – a Grade I listed Jacobean stately home built in 1610.  

Rise Hall offers wedding packages for up to 180 guests and has 31 bedrooms/suites. Choose from Classic, Superior, or Premium Packages.
