Allerton Castle Wedding Photography – Amy + Jake

Amy + Jake held their wedding at Allerton Castle in North Yorkshire.

We’re not sure how exactly but Amy + Jake managed to organise the most beautiful wedding day from the other side of the world. Jake hails from North Yorkshire but now lives with Amy in Sydney, Australia. The decision was made to head to England for the big day and when they discovered Allerton Castle, it was like it was always meant to be. It turns out that Allerton Castle was the filming location for The Secret Garden, Amy’s favourite childhood film.

It’s a truly stunning venue. A huge stately home that once housed the ‘Grand Old Duke of York’ (for any nursery rhyme fans out there). You’d be forgiven for thinking this was a royal wedding, just with fewer soldiers and film crews. The Great Hall is a spectacular setting for the ceremony and we got some lovely photos in the drawing room before everyone headed to the ballroom for speeches and the wedding breakfast. The Great Hall was then ready for the DJ who was accompanied by a live saxophonist which added a bit more funkiness to the dancefloor, a brilliant addition to the night.

As it was Bonfire Night we were even treated to a fireworks display. We love fireworks!

It was a perfect wedding full of tears, laughs, and love. Thanks for having us along Amy + Jake.

Here are a few of our favourite pictures from the day…
