One of Our New Favourite York Wedding Venues
If you’re planning a city wedding soon, then you should consider booking one of our new favourite York wedding venues – Grays Court Hotel. Tasha + Raef did, and it was amazing.
Grays Court Hotel Wedding
It was a stunning sunny day and the gardens were being prepared by Willow and Bear. Even the resident dog was found lounging in the summer rays. Grays Court Hotel has two potential ceremony locations, both of which are gorgeous! We love the flagstone floors, grand fireplaces, and the sense of tradition, which is felt at all of our York wedding venues. One thing that really surprised us about Grays Court is that there are plenty of rooms for guests to stay overnight. Obviously, we absolutely loved this as it meant we could spend the whole day with Tasha + Raef and their guests.
We have filmed loads of weddings across our 16 years as wedding videographers, but this was the first time we had filmed in York city center. After the couple dressed in their wedding attire, they had their first look outside Grays Court, and then we went into the city to enjoy some portrait time. Joining us was their photographer, the lovely Amy.
Outdoor Wedding and Tea Ceremony
Once we arrived back at the venue, the couple prepared for their outdoor ceremony. The main difference between Grays Court and most other hotels is the atmosphere. The hotel backs onto the city walls and you have this feeling of intimacy while being aware of the city surrounding you. They chose one of the best York wedding venues available for their ceremony. Conducting the humanist ceremony was the lovely Rachel, who really told the fantastic story of the couple. Guests enjoyed cocktails followed by a Chinese Tea ceremony to honour Tasha’s family.
York Minster dominates the central skyline and provides a dramatic backdrop for any wedding. The wedding was intimate and absolutely gorgeous, but the overall experience of exploring York with a guide was a truly priceless afternoon. There are many beautiful York wedding venues but Grays Court is by far one of our favourites! Congratulations Tasha and Reaf. It was a lovely day. We wish you the best for your future together with lots happiness, love and success.
