Wedding Photography at Rushpool Hall near Saltburn by Simon Cardwell

Today we are going to take an in depth look at a wedding which took place at Rushpool Hall near Saltburn.

It is a venue I have worked at many times over the years & one I know very well having shot the interiors photographs for the venue website in the past too.

I usually start a couple of hours before showtime, and I tend to follow the bride & those in close proximity of her around this time:

I usually head down to the ceremony room during this time & get a few shots of the room all ready to go:

I then met up with the groom & his groomsmen:

I don’t tend to stage many pictures, but if someone requests a specific photo I am always happy to oblige. In this instance the groom wanted a picture of he & his ushers walking through the grounds:

Then its back up to the bride’s room:

I usually take a moment at this stage of the day to grab a few posed shots of the bride, bridesmaids & any parents that are in the room:

Then its downstairs to the ceremony room with everyone in place waiting for the bride:

I don’t showcase a lot of posed pictures on the blog typically, but I always encourage group photos on the day. They are quick to do & they are there as a document of the family afterwards:

Again, I often explain to clients that the speeches can provide a lot of value as far as photography is concerned. Guests are not paying attention to me & I can go undetected to get photographs of many of those there on the day:

Wedding Photography at Wynyard Hall by Simon Cardwell

Not a long post from me today, just sharing a few from a wedding at Wynyard Hall with you.

The bride & groom were not keen on the idea of posing for photos & the emphasis was very much on a natural & relaxed style on the day. Which suited me down to the ground as that is how I like to work.


Wynyard Hall is one of the more impressive buildings in the north east of England, and it makes the perfect backdrop for the arrival of the wedding car:

Rather than a posed shot in the wedding car as you may be accustomed to seeing, on this occasion I just let the moment happen & I photographed around it:

It makes for a much more genuine end result:

This area outside the chapel at Wynyard Hall always seems to generate some good pictures:

I did persuade the couple to get a few posed photographs taken at the front of the venue:

This is a group shot of everyone at the wedding, sometimes a tricky thing to get right & I often end up hanging out of a window or balcony. On this occasion I was able to get everyone in shot with the venue behind me:
