Wedding Photography Blog #6 - Jess & Stuart at The Old Lodge Malton

Malton - The Old Lodge

I recently shot a wedding in Malton, in Ryedale North Yorkshire, a lively market town where I once lived and worked. The venue for this wedding was near the centre of town, The Old Lodge, an old stomping ground of mine.  It is a 17th century Grade II listed Tudor Mansion with 3 acres of beautiful gardens overlooked by an outside terrace. There's also a bar with log fire and event room. For this wedding, the ceremony was held outside, an idyllic setting, or there is also the use of the Ceremonies Hall.

The staff at the Lodge were incredibly helpful and a pleasure to work alongside to help one another deliver an unforgettable and top class occasion for the happy couple. I liaised with Nicola, who was in charge on the day, and not only did we gel and work to help one another, but we had a great time doing it too. Top recommendations all round!

The venue really does have it all (building, gardens, staff, food, drink, facilities) so I would definitely recommend considering The Old Lodge in Malton if you are looking to get married in the area. Take a look at the photos below to see the proof!...

Jess & Stuart

Jess and Stuart had their ceremony in the grounds of the Lodge, followed by celebrations outside and in! They were a fabulous couple to get to know, and their families and friends were too.  The day was full of good cheer, scrumptuous food, fantastic dancing and a few owls.....

Owl Adventures

Jess and Stuart have a great affinity with owls and as such acquired the services of Owl Adventures, to be present on their big day. For weddings such as this, Owl Adventures offer:

  • Wedding ring delivery service - a barn owl will deliver the rings to the altar
  • Wedding display - a display of birds of prey where guests can hold birds (and have photos :D )
  • Flying show - a spectacular flying show featuring owls, hawks and falcons in free flight

As you'll see from the photos below, Jess and Stuart had all three of these options and, as much as weddings are already such special occasions, Owl Adventures really did make it such an extraordinary afternoon. The team were really friendly and very helpful and obliging to me as wedding photographer, which is always most appreciated. 

I was very comfortable photographing the birds - they are well controlled by the falconers and I am used to shooting fast moving small things (pets, small children!) so was able to get some stunning shots of these fabulous creatures in action, and the guests enjoying the show (see the selection below).
