The Old Grain Store

When you’re in Yorkshire, everywhere you look its just beautiful. Anyone with a camera in their hands will want to be taking photos. Which makes it even more exciting for me as a wedding photographer in Yorkshire. Digressing from the Old Grain Store! I’m mentioning how beautiful Yorkshire is because The Old Grain Store is perfect visually too! 

With its Luxe styling and after the refurbishment. It has gorgeous ceiling drapes, exposed brick and the barns original wooden beams. Elegant chandeliers give your venue a slight twist on a rustic looking barn They have a grand central staircase that leads to the cocktail lounge and overlooks your dance floor.

History of The Oakwood at Ryther

The venue is owned and ran by Ian and Janine. It’s been their home since 1943 and The Oakwood at Ryther has been in the family for generations. It’s been used for farming livestock and crops. Ian and Janine mention on their website that as farmers they “both enjoy seeing things grow and flourish”. This fits perfectly with the new journeys of couples as well as taking your wedding ideas and bringing them to life. Janine says she has an eye for details and can always see the potential in something. This sounds great for taking your ideas to Janine for your wedding.

In terms of the history, the actual site dates all the way back to the late 16th century. All of the land was used for tree felling. It wasn’t until 1823 that it was developed into a working farm.

One of the things I love about wedding venues with such history is that your wedding will become a part of it! With the Oakwood at Ryther being a relatively new venue you can be one of the first to say you’re vows and have the most perfect wedding and it be a part of this rich history.
