The party snapper had an outing to Saltmarshe Hall’s first wedding on 26th October.
History of Saltmarshe Hall
The Saltmarshe estate originally belonged to Sir Lionel Saltmarshe, who was knighted by William the Conqueror in 1067, and remained in his family for more than 900 years, until 1970. The hall that stands today was completed in 1828, three years after construction had first started. The architects also designed the law courts in Beverley, which everyone now knows as Sessions Spa. It cost around £15,000 to build Saltmarshe Hall and the grounds, and by 1842, Philip Saltmarshe, the owner, had been forced to extend the house due to having 10 children.
Saltmarshe Hall today
Saltmarshe Hall is one of Yorkshire’s best kept secrets, despite being 30 miles from Hull and York. It played host to a masquerade ball in March earlier this year, and it is certainly made for those sorts of events, as many Georgian and Victorian houses are. As with the other period houses we have visited, Saltmarshe is one of those venues that you can’t help but love. It certainly has the wow factor for any event, including weddings. It’s one of those magical, fairy tale venues that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Chris and Annabel tied the knot on 26th October at Saltmarshe Hall, surrounded by their friends and family. Kate and Roland, who own Saltmarshe, were very nervous about this wedding, as it was the first one to be held at the hall. When Annabel walked down the staircase, Kate and Roland felt very emotional, and also very proud that all they had worked for had finally came together, ensuring that Chris and Annabel’s special day was perfect.
We wish Chris and Annabel all the best for future, and hope that you both enjoy married life! We also hope that Kate and Roland have many more fantastic weddings at Saltmarshe Hall!
