Rudding Park Weddings

Howdy and welcome to our Rudding Park wedding photography guide. We are so excited to show you around this really amazing Harrogate Manor House venue as well as to share with you some of the best of our insider information about how to get the best photographs for your wedding.

This hotel, spa and golf resort is a Grade I, regency area Manor House nestled on a 2000 acre estate just minutes from the scenic Knaresborough and the Nidd River. 

As documentary Yorkshire wedding photographers, we really enjoy working with couples who are looking to have a chilled out wedding focused on friends and family. We love Rudding Park because it offers a perfect blend between stylish opulence and a relaxed, at-home vibe that appeals to the couple who wants a little bit of everything!

Rudding Park Wedding Photography

As Harrogate wedding photographers, we absolutely love working with the naturally gorgeous scenery available in every direction. Rudding Park is a natural choice for wedding couples who want to have a truly fun wedding as well as a bit of old-world opulence. 

When photographing weddings at Rudding Park, we love to work with both the gorgeous grounds as well as the fantastic interior spaces. Because we want you to be focused on enjoying your day and hanging out with your friends and family, we prefer to do a few little “mini” couples sessions throughout the day rather than one long session that makes your loved ones think you have disappeared!

The fantastic versatility of Rudding Park means that each little mini-session can be focused on a variety of different stunning backdrops. Whether you have a paddle in a boat or enjoy the stately elegance of the library, both he building and the beautiful Yorkshire scenery has a lot to offer! 

If you are keen to see more relaxed, modern documentary photography – have a scroll and enjoy a bit of inspiration!

Group Photos at Rudding Park

There are so many fantastic choices of location for your group photos at Rudding Park but our favourite  (if the weather and light agrees!) is under the columned entrance near the Radcliffe room. Of course, we can also choose to place you in front of one of the rolling hillside landscapes or perhaps under the tree canopy. If the day turns a bit rainy when you are scheduled to have your group photos, we can always opt for one of several indoor locations such as the staircase or the library. All options are available within just a few feet of the main area where your friends and family will be mingling so you don’t miss the action. Whichever option we decide on the day – you really can’t go wrong.

Couples Photos at Rudding Park

There are even more locations at Rudding Park for couples photos – if you’d an believe it. Not only can we choose from a variety of beautiful indoor locations such as the grand staircase or the Library, but we will also have a whole host of options outdoors. If you are keen, we can even go out to Love Island so you can have a little row in the boat (available May-Sept). In the autumn, the leaves of the trees turn a gorgeous umber and gold which makes for automatic beauty. In the winter, the grounds can be carpeted with snow which somehow manages to make the already amazing building look even more magestic!

The Grounds at Rudding Park

To say that the grounds at Rudding Park are expansive would be an understatement and there are so many different activities to choose from.

On offer are an 18 hole golf course, a variety of spa treatments, a pool, a rooftop spa and even a private cinema (we love the idea of incorporating the cinema into some wedding photos – let us know if you are game!)

The grounds of Rudding Park also include gorgeous gardened and wild areas as well as an honest trees dating back to the times when the land was once a part of the Knaresborough Forest.

Ceremony Spaces at Rudding Park

Rudding Park offers a huge variety of options for your ceremony – both indoor and out. The Radcliffe Room is a fabulous choice for an indoor wedding ceremony. However, if you are planning a summer ceremony, you have to consider an Alfresco wedding in the Breeze House pergola. You can even choose to have a religious blessing in the 19th century Gothic Revial style chapel – talk about a unique option for a Manor House wedding! If you are having a bijou affair, you can even choose from the Crosby or Jupiter suites so you can have a Goldilocks room that is the “just right” size.
