Wentworth Woodhouse in Rotherham, South Yorkshire
Wentworth Woodhouse is situated in the village of Wentworth, Rotherham and is a Grade I listed country house and wedding venue. Boasting 606ft in length, Wentworth Woodhouse is largely considered to have the longest facade of any building in England meaning you would definitely need a wide angle lens to get it all in one photo unless you stood half a mile away! Wentworth was built in the 18th Century on an estate of 15,000 acres and the house itself has over 300 rooms all with Georgian design and influence. The opportunities for wedding photographs at Wentworth Woodhouse are quite literally endless with the interior of the Jacobean mansion house being just as impressive and grand as the exterior.
Wentworth Woodhouse is uniquely made up of two adjoining houses that stand back to back in different architectural styles. The West front and original part of the house was built of brick in an English Baroque style, whereas the classical Palladian style East Front was completed later. From a photographer’s perspective, Wentworth’s unique architectural features provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding gallery.
Wentworth Woodhouse has also been featured in a number of film and television productions including Pride and Prejudice and Downton Abbey, but if you hire Wentworth for your wedding celebrations you can expect to have the whole 2.5 acres of building to yourselves for the day. More than enough space to get some incredible photographs!
