Breadsall Priory Wedding Photography

Speeches during a wedding at Breadsall Priory in Derby

For any Derby wedding photographer, the Breadsall priory is one of Derbyshire’s finest wedding venues. OK I admit that I might be a little biased. You see, my wife & I got married here. We fell totally in love with the stunning landscaped gardens and the beautiful stately home which boasts to be one of Marriott’s oldest hotels. Despite it’s age, numerous investments have turned the place into a fantastic 300 acre, two 18 hole golf courses and luxury spa & gym.

As a four star Marriott hotel and over 100 bedrooms it is very convenient for you and your guests to stay after the party is over. The breakfasts are totally amazing. So if you are staying after the wedding, make sure you book a room which includes breakfast. You won’t be sorry I promise.

It is clear to see why it is one of Derby’s most popular wedding venues. If you want to get married here, I seriously recommend you book really early!

Civil wedding ceremonies at the Breadsall Priory. There are three main rooms which all can be used by couple’s wishing to tie the knot here.

The Morley room has a maximum capacity of 70. It’s period features and abundance of natural light make this room the perfect place to get married.

Next door is the Haslam room which boasts commanding views over the ornamental lake and beautiful gardenss. The room can accommodate up to 90 ceremony guests and 74 for your wedding breakfast. Neatly tucked away above is space for your DJ. They really have thought of everything!

For the larger weddings, the Pavilion suite at the rear of the hotel can hold up to 100 guests for the ceremony and the same number for the wedding breakfast. Having it’s own entrance and bar facilities make it a great location for couple’s who want a wedding in one large room.

Rachael & Alex’s Breadsall Priory Wedding

Rachael and Alex got married in 2018 and asked me to be their Breadsall Priory wedding photographer. I had such a great time at their wedding. It was lovely to be part of their day and helping to document their memories at this special venue.

I was particularly bowled away at their choreographed first dance. It started out like all others but then their wedding party joined them on the dance floor after thirty seconds. I can only guess how long they’d all practiced this routine. It was absolutely amazing and I am so glad that I managed to capture so many funny moments.

Have a look at a few of my favourites below.
