Sandburn Hall Wedding Photography
Greetings and welcome to our Sandburn Hall Wedding Photography portfolio page where you can find some helpful information about our style of informal and friendly York wedding photography as well as some insider details about one of our favourite event hall wedding venues –Sandburn Hall wedding venue in Flaxley, York!
About Sandburn Hall
Sandburn Hall’s wedding and event venue is located on the grounds of their glorious 18 hole championship golf course.
The oak-framed Grand Hall has possibly some of the most spectacular views you will see of the York countryside. Absolutely surrounded by windows, your day will feel like it is part of the great outdoors whilst still being safely tucked inside. Every wedding photographer just dreams of a room with this much open space and light.
Sandburn Hall is located just a few miles from York city centre has all the comfort of a beautifully designed function space with all of the charm of a modern barn design all set within 1000 acres of Yorkshire woodland.
Sandburn Hall Wedding Photographer
As York wedding photographers, we have a long history with Sandburn Hall and have been lucky enough over the years to watch it grow in both style and detail.
Since our first wedding at Sandburn Hall in 2012, we have seen the addition/expansion of the private Settle Bar area, the Sanderson Room and as the creation of the beautiful white rose garden.
As York wedding photographers, Sandburn Hall has been one of our favourite venues for many years because it offers so much to our couples.
The staff at Sandburn Hall are unfailingly efficient, professional and friendly and we are always reassured that weddings at Sandburn Hall will be well looked after. Sandburn Hall has so many wedding photography options, who could possibly want more?
From tucked away woodlands, to manicured gardens, to sunsets on the back of the course, we are always spoiled for choice.
It doesn’t hurt that we always seem to have the best luck with sunsets at Sandburn Hall!
Sandburn Hall Function Rooms & Amenities
Grand Function Hall
The Grand Function Hall at Sandburn Hall is an absolutely enormous, barn style Hall all located on the first floor with exposed wood beams and spectacular views of the golf course, lake and North Yorkshire countryside. It can accommodate between 80-160 guests seated or 220 for your evening party.
The room is just streaming with light coming from windows on three sides of the building. With white walls and natural wood décor, Sandburn Hall’s Grand Function Hall is the perfect blank-slate venue that can transform to match your vision.
From rustic to modern, as Sandburn Hall wedding photographers, we have photographed many different styles of weddings at Sandburn Hall and we would be hard pressed to think of the kind of day it couldn’t accommodate!
The Grand Hall is a “T” shaped space with two wings coming out from the sides of the central banqueting area. This is perfect for couples who want a room with lots of flexibility as you can easily accommodate activities such as indoor games, photobooths, entertainers or even just a chill-out space.
The Grand Function Hall has a private bar so your guests never have to leave the party to have a bit of refreshment!
White Rose Garden
With a beautiful arbour entry and flower enshrouded folly, the White Rose Garden is the true hidden gem wedding location in York. Weather permitting, couples can have their wedding ceremony right under the folly and then walk back down the aisle under that amazing arbour.
The Rose Garden is a perfectly planned space with little nooks just perfect for photographs such as the bench swing or one of the benches conveniently dotted throughout.
The garden is just steps away from a secluded little woodland area which creates an amazing wild contrast against the structure of the garden – particularly in Autumn when the leaves are in their full glory and the woodlands looks on fire with yellow light!
As a York wedding photographer – I just cannot get enough of this beautiful and varied space and every time I work at Sandburn Hall, I find a new little corner I previously overlooked. It really is a venue that keeps on giving.
The Sanderson Room
With stunning views, The Sanderson Room is a perfect location for a more intimate affair and some of our favourite weddings have been in this little bijou addition. The Sanderson Room is located adjacent to the Grand Function Hall on the first floor and has a lovely personal feel to it with its own private bar.
Whilst private, The Sanderson Room can also be easily accessed from the Grand Hall corridor or the Balcony. Whilst this room is the perfect location for a wedding of up to 60 guests, we have also seen couples who opted to hire it in addition to the Grand Hall and use the space for a children’s play space complete with its own entertainment just for the kids!
As a North Yorkshire wedding photographer, I just love the versatility of this space and have even used it to take group photographs on days when the weather wasn’t at its finest!
As a York wedding photographer, I think one of the most fantastic features of Sandburn Hall has got to be the gorgeous balcony space which wraps around the entire Grand Function Hall.
This space is the perfect location for guests to enjoy a bit of sunshine whilst never being more than a few feet from the action. The Balcony can be accessed from multiple locations on the first floor as well as a set of stairs which leads up from the courtyard between the Settle Bar and the Rose Garden.
At the end of a perfect day, what could a couple want more than to stand on that immense balcony and watch the sunset?
The Settle Bar
Located on the ground floor, The Settle Bar is the perfect location to meet up with friends and family for a little tipple after the wedding ceremony.
With easy access to the courtyard and the White Rose Garden, The Settle Bar is fully stocked and ready to make your guests feel at home. As a Sandburn Hall wedding photographer, I just love the way that
The Settle Bar adds to the indoor/outdoor feel of the venue with guests easily able to grab a pint and then enjoy some sunshine or (if the weather is not playing nice) chill out on the cosy sofas and have a natter with each other.
The Golf Course
You can’t have a wedding at an amazing York golf course without mentioning… the golf course! With so much accommodation on site, the addition of golf right at your fingertips might be the perfect way to keep your friends and family enjoying their stay all through the weekend.
The Sandburn Hall philosophy on golf is all inclusive and whether you are just beginning or are a seasoned pro, they will welcome you on the green with open arms.
Just a little plug as a wedding photographer…we have yet to have a bride and groom drive a few balls, but we 100% want to be there to photograph you if you do!
