Weddings at Broughton Hall Sanctuary - Peace, beauty, nature and style. An abundance of spaces to make your own.

These pages are dedicated to some of our favourite wedding venues in the world. The unusual thing about Broughton Hall Sanctuary is that it's not one of our favourite venues, it's three of them ...
Broughton Hall, Utopia & Eden. Each of these three secluded and very different spaces hold their own unique charms fitting to different styles of wedding. At the centre there's Broughton Hall itself - an elegant 16th century historic country mansion with five magnificent state rooms and beautiful manicured gardens for an elegant champagne reception.

Then there's the contrasting contemporary architecture of Utopia - a modern, glass-fronted purpose-built events space set in the original walled gardens (ensuring maximum privacy) and with its stunning licensed veranda allowing you to hold your ceremony in the most natural of surrounds.

And finally Eden, Broughton's "party house". As well as a boutique indoor space, ideal for (licensed) ceremonies and dancing, Eden also boasts its own large, flat garden - an ideal space for a marquee or Teepee in an absolutely idyllic, rustic setting.

Each space has its own obvious appeals and are all available for exclusive hire. You can also mix and match, with a ceremony at Utopia and reception at Broughton Hall for example, or take advantage of the on site chapel for a traditional church wedding. the possibilities for celebrating your day are endless, but it doesn't stop at the day itself.

One thing that we, as documentary wedding photographers and videographers, always say is that your wedding is not just about that beautiful ceremony, those incredible speeches and having the greatest party of your lives, it's ultimately all about people, family and friendship. It's often the case that only on your wedding day will everyone you know and love be gathered in the same place at the same time and to us it's that rare opportunity to be surrounded by loved ones with the sole aim of having fun, that we personally would (and did!) want to maximise at our own weddings.

One of the great things about Broughton Sanctuary is the ability to take over the whole space, including its various forms of on-site accommodation. Broughton is not only a great wedding venue, it's truly a sanctuary, with private cottages for hire, an incredible wellness centre, pool, bistro, fire temple and 3000 acre nature recovery project, as well as the incredible surrounds of the Yorkshire countryside. It's the perfect opportunity to extend your celebrations over multiple days, with your guests staying on site to have not just an extraordinary wedding day but a multi-day experience. This writer's own wedding took place over several days and each hour spent in the company of friends and family was as memorable as the ceremony day itself so it's something that we highly recommend.

Whether you're planning a one-day wedding or three-day experience though, Broughton Sanctuary has all the beauty, tranquility, customisation, expertise and variety to help make every wedding, whatever vibe you want to achieve, a truly special event.

Looking for creative videographers or photographers for your wedding at Broughton Hall?

If you're looking for wedding photography and/or videography to capture the action and atmosphere of your Broughton Hall Wedding we'd love to chat and see if we could be the right fit for you. 
Broughton Hall not only boasts three incredible venues, it's also the perfect place to relax and unwind before and after the main event. With multiple (pet friendly!) holiday homes on site you can have a space of your own on site where all the family can stay in the same place - the perfect way to spread your celebrations out over a few days. To us, weddings are not just about the act of getting married, they're also rare time to spend with family and friends, so having that option to stay nearby the venue and have a relaxed lead up and follow up to the wedding is absolutely invaluable. It's particularly special when spent in such a beautiful countryside retreat with options for on-site therapeutic treatments and experiences.

That peaceful, countryside feel is one of the things that makes Broughton Hall so special as a venue in general. Whichever of the multiple wedding spaces you choose, on arrival it immediately feels relaxed, private and secluded. Whether it's firepits, BBQ's and bohemian vibes or a stylish garden party you're looking for, setting the right atmosphere is so important in getting the wedding you've dreamed about, and if the main emphasis is just on having a chilled, fun day together then Broughton Hall couldn't be more perfect.

As documentary style wedding photographers and videographers that laid-back vibe feels particularly perfect. Our work focusses on people and personalities, and the more you and your guests are relaxed and being themselves, the more we can see who they truly are in the photographs. We want to make wedding photographs and films that don't just record what happened on the day but capture a little snippet of your lives and who you and those closest to you really are. 

The relaxed experience is not just limited to the day itself - by all accounts the experience of working with the vastly experienced Broughton Sanctuary team is a great one. With each space having its own unique personality and so many different types of event taking place on site, the team are able to help you shape the day you really want, not one pre-defined by the packages offered.

We've photographed weddings at Broughton Hall many times, yet each has felt completely different to the last. Each event feels spontaneous; individual, like it's the first wedding we've shot there, and for such an accomplished venue that's no easy feat to achieve. We believe that the more personal you can make your day, the better and more memorable it will be, and that seems to be an ethos that we share with Broughton sanctuary. We simply couldn't recommend the venue more highly.
“We cried! Thank you so much Dom & Liam, the photographs are phenomenal, we are blown away!”
“WOW. We’ve just sat down and watched this and are blown away… It’s amazing!! Thank you so, so much!! We’re settling back into reality after an amazing 6 weeks of wedding fun, thank you for being such a huge part of our day – having you both around really was an absolute pleasure. Thank you again so much for everything!!”
“Thank you so much for the slideshow and the photos. They are so incredible and you have caught so many amazing moments.”
