History of Oulton Hall – West Yorkshire

In the little village of Oulton in Leeds, West Yorkshire, England, there lies a stately country house hotel called Oulton Hall. Over 300 years ago, the hotel began a long and colourful history.  The first structure on the property was a manor house constructed in the middle of the 18th century by wealthy wool merchant John Blayds. The house has a symmetrical façade, sash windows, and a main entrance with a pedimented doorcase. It was built in the Georgian architectural style.  The Calverley family purchased the home in 1804, and they made extensive renovations to it. They constructed a new stable block to the south and a new wing with a ballroom and a library to the north.

The Midgley family bought the home in 1863, and they continued to expand and modernise it. They also installed contemporary plumbing and central heating, as well as a new entrance hall, billiards room, and conservatory.  The mansion was taken over by the military and served as a hospital for wounded soldiers during World War One. The building was bought by Leeds City Council after the war, who used it as a children’s home there until the 1960s.

De Vere Hotels and Resorts bought the home in the 1980s and turned it into the opulent hotel it is today. The hotel features 152 guest rooms and suites, a spa, a golf course, as well as a number of dining options.  Much of the building’s original Georgian architecture has survived the many alterations and additions made over the years. The hotel is encircled by 300 acres of lovely grass, and its interior is decorated with antique elements including grand staircases, elaborate plasterwork, and ancient fireplaces.  Today, Oulton Hall is one of Leeds’ most well-known hotels, drawing travellers from all over the globe to experience its rich history, opulent amenities, and breathtaking surroundings.

Why I love Documentary Wedding Photography

My Wedding Photography Style

There are a number of different approaches to wedding photography.  I think its so important that you take a moment to think which photography style will suit your wedding.  Are you wanting more posed pictures or more relaxed wedding pictures?  I find my self somewhere in the middle, stunning portraits but also real natural moments.  I think I know how to blend these two different styles of photography.  I know when a more documentary style of photography is needed but also when a bit more direction would really help, the group pictures for example.  

For more the wedding photography should reflect the story of your Oulton Hall wedding, it’s for that reason I would say about 80% of my photography on a wedding day will be documentary, letting the day unfold and capturing what happens.  Why not take a look at my photography gallery to get a feel for my style?
