Hannah and Charlie’s winter Merchant Adventurers’ Hall wedding was wonderfully festive. You won’t find a better historic wedding venue in York city centre than this!
Complete with a wonky wooden floor, beams and history, a massive Christmas tree, an open fire, Christmas lights and fantastic personalised wedding favours – it was a lovely warm and happy wedding.
Between Christmas and the New year is a lovely time for a wedding.
Lots of people are off work, and the decorations are still up – it’s a perfect time to see family and friends. This makes late December weddings very popular and dates book up far in advance for most venues and wedding suppliers.
This historic venue certainly wow’s guests – especially those who have travelled from far away – it’s a significant bonus when the wedding is in a top tourist attraction! One thing to note is that no high heels were allowed without protectors! I think that added to the unique feel of the place – it reinforced to guests that the venue was special.
The weather was surprisingly good for late December; we went outside into the beautiful grounds for some simple photos. We were spoilt for choice for beautiful backdrops for wedding photos.
Hannah had made individually personalised wedding favours for each guest – a champagne cork decorated to look like them. They were a massive hit! Everyone loved them, and it made a great ice breaker.
The food was amazing too! I love it when a couple provide me with a meal, especially when the food is as good as this was! It was my first Merchant Adventurers’ Hall wedding, and I loved it. Hopefully, I’ll be back there soon.
