The best wedding venue in North Wales
A photographers dream
Literally the most asked question we get is where is our favourite venue? We’ve been working in weddings for over 10 years now and have seen a lot of wedding locations. We’ve been to the highlands of Scotland, we’ve worked in the valleys of Wales and the farmlands of England. Each wedding special in its own way, each couple putting their own unique stamp on it. So whenever we’re asked where the best venue is, or where our favourite venue is, it’s a really hard question to answer. A lot of the time it can come down to our couples, how they utilise the space and make it their own. We often visit the same venue for multiple weddings each year, but sometimes these repeat visits can feel like visiting the venue for the first time, just by the way the couples have decided to use them. But any time I’m invited to Trevor Hall, I know it’s going to be good. It’s a venue which only the most awesome of couples use.
OK so we’re not necessarily talking about camping and music style weddings (though those are amazing in their own right), I’m talking about the idea of spreading it out. Taking your time and enjoying your wedding over a number of days. Throw in a BBQ here and an afternoon of games here, perhaps a sprinkling of a pre-weding party and you have yourself a mini wedding festival. It’s rare for sure to see folk organise their weddings like this, but it does happen and its amazing when it does. You can feel the excitment and the anticipation, but also the relaxed nature that comes from having a wedding spread over a few days. Festival weddings just hit differently and Trevor Hall is one of the venues that really lends itself to this type of celebration. When you hire out Trevor hall, you get it for an extended weekend. That’s multiple days of wedding excitment and fun.
Firestarters, Daleks and Tragedy
Trevor Hall is quirky. That’s the best way to describe it. It has a piano room, a greenhouse, ponds and views for days. It also has a suit of armour, a Dalek in the bathroom, old penny arcade machines and gold discs from the Steps and Prodigy catalogue. It’s an eclectic mix, and yet it works. It wears its history on its sleeve and doesn’t pretend to be anything else. As a result it is phenomenally cool and really is a photographers dream. Honestly I could talk about it all day but really, just check the photos below.
A post lockdown wedding
Back in 2019 I met up with Shaunagh and Ben to discuss their wedding. They’d booked us to photograph their upcoming wedding in Trevor Hall and the plans sounded amazing. A lot of home made detail and everything was on track to be an epic wedding. Unfortunately they were one of our couples that had their wedding planned for 2020. Enter lockdown and the crazy mess that was. Dates were moved and the anticipation along with it. Not to be disheartened we met up again for a second engagement shoot and time to get excited again! By the time their wedding arrived, having met each other a number of times, it already felt like we were good friends.
Thus started their days-long epic summer wedding which turned out to be a real highlight of 2021. Style, grace, a heatwave and amazing food. It was a wedding to remember, and one we are so excited to show you.
Home grown wedding
One of the coolest things to come out of this epic wedding is that Both Shaunagh and Ben have entered into the wedding industry themselves. Check the photos for the amazing stationary and the brass details, handmade by themselves. Small details like this can really make a day, but it’s so cool that they enjoyed, and were so good at creating their day that they are helping other couples with their wedding.
