Mitton Hall Wedding Photography

Stunning Country House Hotel in Lancashire



I absolutely LOVE Mitton Hall. It is such a fantastic wedding venue for so many reasons. It is also one of Lancashire’s most popular country house venues and as soon as you visit, it is not hard to see why.

I can still remember the first time I visited Mitton Hall, I was absolutely blown away. Everything about this magnificent 15th century manor is perfect, from the beautiful exterior to the warm, cosy and romantic feeling of the Main Hall. Not to mention the gorgeous gardens at the back of the building with stunning countryside views across the Ribble Valley.

The ambience and atmosphere at Mitton Hall is always one of peacefulness and relaxation. It’s location, near Whalley in Lancashire, is so nice too. I may be a little biased as I only live 10 minutes away and I’m a Lancashire girl myself, but I just love this part of the world.

5 Reasons why I love photographing weddings at Mitton Hall

Mitton Hall has an excellent reputation amongst wedding suppliers as being one of the best venues to work at and I couldn’t agree more. Here’s why;

It’s a beautiful wedding venue in every season
This gorgeous venue is extremely photogenic, both inside and outside. This makes it an ideal choice for weddings regardless of the season or the weather. I’ve photographed some amazing weddings in many different months of the year and I’ve always been blown away by the endless opportunities for amazing photographs.

It’s the perfect mix of modern and traditional
If you’ve had the pleasure of visiting this stunning space you’ll have noticed the perfect combination of old and new. The gorgeous Main Hall with the roaring fire is warm, cosy and comforting. Making it a great space for an intimate drinks reception or an area to retreat and chill in the evening for a quieter space to end the night. The conservatory is a light and airy modern ceremony space, I just love the way the the light floods in across the room from the many windows.


Oh my, you’ve got us feeling totally emotional. They are fab! Thank you so much! xxx

The main hall and huge chandelier is great for indoor group shots and bride and groom portraits, whilst the main wedding reception room looks absolutely stunning when set up and dressed for a wedding. This room was redeveloped a couple of years ago and it is now one of the best reception rooms I have seen at any venue, with a huge amount of natural light, a wedding photographer’s dream. The views from the room are exceptional too, you feel as though you’re in the middle of endless countryside. It all feels so peaceful. What better when taking to the dance floor for the first time as man and wife than all your friends and family on one side and view stretching over the Ribble Valley on the other? It really is an amazing setting.

The gardens at the back of the venue are beautiful and the perfect setting for romantic photographs of bride and grooms. My favourite part of the gardens is the little woodland area, which for couples wanting rustic wedding photographs is absolutely perfect. The sun also sets perfectly over the gardens so for newlyweds lucky enough to get a colourful sunset on their wedding day, their evening photographs can be stunning.

One of the reasons that Mitton Hall is so highly regarded is because it is owned by James Place, who also own a number of other fantastic venues across Lancashire. Working at any James Place venue is always a pleasure because they their staff are always so helpful, not just to their bride and grooms, but also to the wedding suppliers as well. The staff at Mitton Hall always work closely with the suppliers, such as myself, to ensure that every wedding day is perfect.
