Beautiful wedding venue Hodsock Priory in Nottinghamshire

Just outside of Blyth, Hodsock Priory is a beautiful 19th century house and surrounding 800 acres of woodland, gardens and countryside, Hodsock Priory is famous across the world for its beautiful snowdrops that carpet the gardens.

Today was a beautifully bright, crisp winter day – it was a bit of an icy drive to get there – but the snow on the ground looked beautiful.

George was very welcoming and showed me around the house then let me loose to have a good look around on my own with the camera.

Wedding ceremonies at Hodsock Priory

The Panelled Hall is where the ceremonies take place with room for 100 seated guests and another 20 standing. The beautiful warming fire was at the front opposite a large window overlooking the courtyard.

Alternatively you can hold your ceremony in the Pavilion which can hold 120 for a ceremony and 250 for a reception party. Personally I LOVED the amazing deep blue panels and stunning bright windows, but as a wedding photographer I’m drawn to lots of natural light 😉

After the ceremony

After the ceremony has taken place, guests move into the main areas of the house – there is a beautiful homely library as well as a modern bar area.

Although I couldn’t go too far exploring the gardens I will no doubt be going back when the snowdrops are out so will share photos then. In the meantime, here are some photos of the inside of the house.

I LOVE a fabulous staircase, and Hodsock Priory didn’t disappoint. With pretty murals painted on the walls and a gorgeous piano nestled at the bottom I could just imagine the photos of the bride making her way down the stairs.

At the top of the stairs are the 3 beautiful rooms including the bridal suite. Although they were each stunning in their own right.
