I feel incredibly privileged to be a Northorpe Hall Barn wedding photographer. This quirky wedding venue is run by Northorpe Hall Child & Family Trust, a registered charity supporting children’s mental and emotional health. The Trust, based in Kirkless, Mirfield, provides counselling, mentors and confidence building activities, supporting hundreds of local children and their parents every year.
Wedding ceremonies and receptions are not held in the Hall itself but rather the 16th century barn next door. Seating 100 guests, this historic venue offers contemporary comforts thanks to a full refurbishment in 2010 which incorporated underfloor heating and up-to-date sound and presentation equipment. Not just weddings but also family occasions and celebrations can also be held here without worry.
During the week, when not hosting weddings, the barn becomes a residence to young people’s support groups, successfully creating a fun atmosphere of creativity and chuckles. It is also sometimes available for Breakfast and Lunchtime Meetings, where delegates can enjoy breakfasts and lunches while ensuring the presentation is a great one.
All profits from weddings and events held at Northorpe Hall Barn are paid back into the charity, helping generate much needed extra income. Children and young people from the surrounding area are benefitting directly from you holding your wedding at this rustic venue with its lovely, warm atmosphere.
