The Grand Hotel York – Wedding Photography Recommended Supplier

Here at Stewart Barker Photography, I offer a bespoke Wedding Photography service for all of my couples. I pride myself on going the extra mile and thinking of all the little details. Therefore I am very proud to announce that i’m a recommended supplier at The Grand Hotel York! It is an absolute pleasure to be working with such a prestigious wedding venue.

I’m a huge advocate of supporting local businesses, and The Grand is only 10 minutes away from where I live. Having visited the hotel as a guest and a photographer, I can truly vouch for the high-level of service these guys provide. I was blown away by the level of hospitality and just how friendly all the staff were! I also want to give a shout out to Megan, Lauren and the rest of the team who make weddings and events at The Grand happen!

The Food

Speaking of hospitality, the food at The Grand Hotel York is incredible. I was treated to a very nice meal in The Rise Restaurant when I visited. The setting, service and food were all spot-on! I love seafood and a good steak, so I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to indulge myself with soft-shell crab and a perfectly cooked steak. I’m a Yorkshire lad through and through and I love how they put a Yorkshire twist on British classics. I can only imagine how luxurious their 3-course wedding breakfast would be!

The Venue

And don’t even get me started on the hotel itself! This majestic building used to be a ‘Palace of Business’ for the North Eastern Railway Company. York has a proud heritage in the rail industry, and this building is full of original features that celebrate the grandeur of the rail era. The venue is perfect for wedding photography, with majestic hallways and sweeping staircases. Also, the York Bar Walls are just across the road, so there’s lots of opportunities for wedding photos.

I’ve shot inside the Grand Ballroom, and it is a wedding photographer’s dream! It’s a high-ceiling wood paneled room, but still light and airy. There’s plenty of windows, giving you views of the Bar Walls and the York Minster – so it’s the perfect backdrop for you big day. If you’re looking for a touch of luxury for your wedding, then this is definitely the venue for you!

The Grand Hotel Wedding Showcase

To celebrate our collaboration, I’ll be heading to The Grand Hotel York on May 19th to take part in their Wedding Showcase! It’s been a while since I last did a wedding fair, so i’m really excited to meet lots of brides & grooms for a chat about their wedding plans!

If you’re getting married at The Grand, or you’re considering it as your wedding venue, get in touch! I’d love to hear all about your wedding plans, and meet up for a chat & a drink at the hotel!
