Wyresdale Park Wedding Inspiration…
Wyresdale Park is a stunning country estate nestled away within the Forest of Bowland in Lancashire.
Driving along the winding country roads, through picturesque villages like Scorton and heading up to the popular hiking spot of Nicky Nook, you’ll end up at the Wyresdale Park estate.
Many years ago, before filming weddings, we used to head here to enjoy homemade cakes at the Applestore Cafe and walks around Grizdale Lake. It had a special place in my heart now I get to film beautiful weddings here too!
What Makes Wyresdale Park The Perfect Wedding Venue?
But what makes Wyresdale Park one of the best wedding venues in Lancashire?
From the stunning location and the rustic barns for your ceremony and reception, to the incredible staff that go above and beyond. This ticks all the boxes for the perfect wedding venue in the heart of Lancashire.
As a videographer, I do love filming in such a stunning space but also sneaking the couple off through the woods and to the lake for some beautiful portraits with your photographer.
Whatever the weather, this venue is a dream to film at and I thought I’d share a few of my favourite wedding videos to show you why…

Smiles On A Rainy Wedding Day
Both couples embraced the British weather in Lancashire for their weddings and made time to sneak outside to capture some lovely moments.
I think the stunning location within the woodland looks stunning whatever the weather so if you put your trust in your photographer and videographer, you can ensure you get incredible moments for braving the Spring/ Winter weather!
I watched their wedding videos back creating this Wyresdale Park blog post and it took me right back to their wedding days that was filled with huge grins, laughter and love. And I’m just their wedding videographer!
Can you imagine how amazing it would be watching your own wedding highlights back…?

The Best 23 Moments To Inspire Your Wyresdale Park Wedding
As a documentary wedding videographer I’m all about capturing those natural moments.
Even with the help of the Wyresdale Park team to ensure your plan for your day is perfect, there’s still parts of the day that allow me to capture really candid moments.
I thought I’d share a few of my favourite moments I’ve captured for couples getting married at Wyresdale. From ‘first looks’ within the Manor House and North Wing, to romantic ceremonies within the rustic barns. There are SO many photo and video opportunities within this stunning location and venue…
Recommended and Local Wedding Suppliers At Wyresdale Park
I’ve had the pleasure of filming the resident professional hair and make-up by talented, Loft Beauty. They have such a skill in creating really natural make-up looks and relaxed hair styles. I can also personally recommend the Loft Spa, definitely worth a visit when your wedding planning at Wyresdale Park!
As well as Wyresdales recommended suppliers it’s worth asking your favourite suppliers you’ve already booked if they can recommend anyone. I’ve been incredibly blessed to be recommended for many weddings held at Wyresdale and around Lancashire.
Locations For Your Wedding Photos and Video
We really are blessed with some stunning countryside in Lancashire, aren’t we?
I’ve had the pleasure of filming weddings at Wyresdale Park way before the barns were even converted in to the beautiful spaces they are now (one of my favourite weddings can be seen here!).
Whether your blessed with sunshine or rain, there are plenty of places to sneak off to and ensure you’re getting some beautiful couple moments.
I’m sure picking such a rustic wedding venue within a forest means you’re ready to embrace the outdoors? You’ll be rewarded with some amazing moments but also have some time away from your guests, just the two of you!
There’s the traditional courtyard that’s great for confetti and group photos, as well as around the barns for really rustic looking backdrops with the impressive stone walls. Take a walk around the grounds to find little pockets of light within the woodland, or maybe jump in to the wooden paddle boat and enjoy some time on the lake.
The staff are always incredible, not only for the couple and guests but even as wedding videographers we feel so looked after! They go above and beyond, you’ll spot their wedding co-ordinator Tasmin bringing the boat back to the jetty after the wind blew it across the Lake in Ruth and Pete’s wedding video!
Relaxed and Natural Moments
The setting of Wyresdale Park lends itself to a relaxed wedding day. From the lovely locations for your wedding morning with your family and friends, to the White Barn and Ceremony Barn for the more ‘traditional’ wedding moments…there’s so many opportunities to relaxed and allow your wedding photographer and videographer to capture those natural moments you’ll love.
Obviously a load of footage of people standing and posing doesn’t really make for a great wedding video so I’m looking out for the funny moments in-between, which you’ll spot in their highlights video!
Wedding Receptions In The White Barn
The day races on as always and the team at Wyresdale will be working behind the scenes to get the White Barn looking perfect for your wedding reception.
Did you know that it’s called the Wedding Breakfast as it’s the first meal together as a married couple? Makes sense as I don’t think many of us have breakfast at 4:00pm!
Anyway, it’s then on to the speeches and they have great ideas for the layout for you and your guests at the wedding breakfast depending on your numbers. You can even utilise the mezzanine to add a few guests up there for a really fun view of the wedding speeches!
Before everyone took to the dancefloor we raced out to capture a stunning Lancashire sunset over the Scorton hills. I think Wyresdale has been blessed with incredibly picturesque skies whenever I’ve filmed a wedding there!
