Hoghton Tower is a stunning venue
Hoghton Tower is a stunning venue and allows me plenty of opportunities to use my artistic touch as one of the country’s most experienced wedding photographers. I have covered many weddings at Hoghton Tower over the years and know the grounds and buildings well. There are so many places for shots that couples are really spoilt for choice in terms of memories of their big day!

I simply love working at Hoghton Tower
I simply love working at Hoghton Tower. It is easily one of my favourite venues to photograph in the North West. The grounds are filled with plenty of gems for portraits and the buildings are packed with character and wonderful pockets of light. The team are always incredibly friendly and extremely welcoming. I'm already looking forward to my next wedding there!

Our Dream Day in the venue of dreams
What can we say about Hoghton Tower...from the moment we arrived on our first viewing we were completely blown away. Not only is the tower breathtakingly beautiful it is completely unique. We have never seen anywhere so spectacular, it is magical when you turn up the drive and see it sitting at the top of this hill. The team at Hoghton couldn’t have done enough for us from the first appointment until after the wedding, so attentive, patient and made us feel so at ease and confident that everything was taken care of. From recommendations, advice and listening to all of my questions (And there were a lot!) they where all nothing short of wonderful. We cannot recommend this magnificent venue enough, you will not be disappointed. Our day was completely perfect in every single way, and ALL of our guests said they had never seen a venue like it. Thank you thank you thank you, from the bottom our hearts.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

All our weddings have been special. The reason for that is that every bride and groom have been able to design their day and we have not pushed them into a 'one size fits all' package. We are a unique venue and we want our weddings to be unique too! We have had a reenactment wedding through to a beer fest wedding!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Do not go over to top with decorations especially for a venue like ours. Keep it simple and let the venue 'wow' your guests!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

In an age when we want to reduce the 'stuff' we use and then have to throw away, a little live plant was the best wedding favour we have seen!
