Lazaat Hotel Wedding Photography
Hi, my name is Abraham and at Abraham Photography, I provide Lazaat Hotel Wedding Photography. Lazaat is one of my favourite and most poular venues among couples due to the variety this East Yorkshire venue offers. Lazaat Hotel provides the perfect venue for your wedding day. With a very distinct and elegant style and it’s 3 acres of beautiful grounds it provides a memorable backdrop for your special day and allows me to capture some beautiful photographs of your wedding day. The superbly grand staircase inside the glass surrounded entrance hall is covered with trees and is a unique sport for wedding photography.

History of Lazaat Hotel
In 2000, the Norwood Guest House and Cattery went up for auction – it was a derelict and neglected building with wild and overgrown shrubland, in need of a lot of TLC! Fortunately, the owners of Lazaat Hotel bided for the site and won! While many mistakes were made throughout the renovation process, the owners persevered and ending up establishing one of the finest venues in their beloved East Yorkshire.
Weddings at Lazaat Hotel
With a setting that is elegant, relaxing, and distinctive, Lazaat Hotel creates a wonderful retreat from daily life. Located in the East Yorkshire Hull Area, the Hotel is easily accessible and close to Beverley and Cottingham.
Inside, there are three main well-equipped spaces to host your wedding. The Pavilion Suite, for example, boasts three acres of gardens and its own private courtyard – it also has its own dedicated entrance and a private kitchen. For a sit-down meal, you can accommodate up to 320 guests with a dancefloor, 300 without a dancefloor and up to 320 for an evening buffet. With complimentary ivory drapes and flattering lighting, you can easily decorate the suite as you like.
Alternatively, you may prefer the Monsoon or Saffron Suite. Situated within the main building of the Lazaat Hotel, the Monsoon Suite comes with its own bar and dancefloor, overlooking private decking with garden space and water features to pose for photographs. Next door, in the adjoining room of the Saffron Suite, there is a smaller space that is the perfect area for a buffet or casual seating during the evening. If you’re planning a smaller wedding, you can rent this area separately for your civil ceremony too. Together, the rooms can host up to 70 guests for a sit-down meal with a dance floor and 100 without, and a maximum of 130 for an evening buffet.
Finally, there is the Imani Suite, their ‘hidden gem’. Also found in the main building, it has an abundance of light, a spacious dancefloor, and overlooks its own private courtyard area. This space can fit between 40 and 130 guests for a sit-down meal with a dancefloor or 170 without, and up to 200 guests for an evening buffet.
In the evening, there are 43 bedrooms for guests to book if they wish to rest and unwind, reminiscing on the day’s events. Each bedroom is larger than your average hotels and offers a personal touch to ensure each stay in enjoyable and comfortable.
Wedding Photography at Lazaat Hotel
There is a multitude of fantastic spots at Lazaat Hotel to capture unique and memorable wedding photographs. In front of the entrance hall, for example, I can capture wonderful photographs in front of the grand staircase, with its large glass surrounds and trees framing the shot. Most of the spaces inside also allow you to decorate according to your colour scheme and so you can choose the background you wish for your big day. You can see more of my Lazaat wedding photography here.
My Yorkshire wedding photography is contemporary, natural, and documentary in style, telling the story of your wedding day and your love for one another creatively, producing timeless and stunning wedding photos that you can treasure for a lifetime. I absolutely love black and white, and I’m sure to include some in your final images; they make for some stunning images.
I know that you’re going to be really eager to get your photos back. Not to worry, I expedite the process to get the photos to you. It takes a little bit of time to sort through the photos and get rid of pictures where people are blinking that you don’t want to see. Additionally, I fully edit each picture in my signature style to ensure all your photos remain consistent. With that being said, you can expect to see your photos within 1 to 3 weeks of your wedding but it is usually at the faster end that.
Remember, you can’t rush perfection!
Absolutely, one of the best things you can do is print your wedding photos and you can do that by ordering one of my wedding albums. I offer beautiful handmade wedding albums, examples of which you can come and view at my studio. These are made by GraphiStudio, one of the top suppliers in Europe, and they offer many options. Your wedding album can be customized to match your colour scheme or preference. You can view my blog on wedding photo albums here.
The minimum number of images in my full-day packages is 500-700; however, the final number is usually higher, and there is no limit on the number of images you get. I take many more images on the day to ensure I document everything going on; however, many of the shots are duplicates or test shots. I will say that nothing is held back, and everything that meets my high standard is presented to you. Nobody wants to receive photos of people looking away or with their eyes closed.
There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the amount you should spend on a wedding photographer will vary depending on your couple’s specific needs and preferences. However, a reasonable estimate for wedding photography costs in the UK would range from £1,000 to £2,500. Hitched released some data in 2023 to say that the average cost of hiring a wedding photographer in the UK is £1300. Remember everyone has different budgets and needs, your quote may change depending on the location, type of photography (posed or candid), and number of photos that are taken. It is also important to remember that these are just estimates – costs may actually be higher or lower depending on your specific needs and circumstances. It is a good idea to chat with a wedding photographer before making any final decisions about budgeting. My full day wedding photography costs start from £1200 and I also offer a half day collection. Please do let me know if you have any questions.
Seven hours of coverage is generally not enough to document a full wedding day in North Yorkshire. Most wedding ceremonies are 1 pm or 2 pm which means the wedding photographer would start bridal preparations around 11am. If the cutting of the cake and first dance is 8pm, then you would need 10 hours of coverage for the day. My packages cover from two hours before the ceremony for bridal prep through to the first dance and some dancefloor action after.
Hiring a wedding photographer is a worthwhile investment with 87% of UK couples choosing to hire a professional. It’s an ideal way to preserve memories of one of the most important days of their lives. You’ll get high-quality images that capture a wedding day’s special moments, emotions, and details. Take a look at my wedding portfolio to see images from previous weddings.
No one can control the weather, but if you are willing to embrace the elements, we can still create some really stunning images. I always have a plan B and have lighting ready for indoor photography. Here is a blog I wrote on if it rains on your wedding day.
I love to meet my couples before your wedding at your choice of location. We can spend some time together, get to know one another and feel at ease in eachothers presence. It is a great opportunity to capture your love for one another without any onlookers. You can find out more on my engagement photoshootblog.
Your initial deposit is only £300 and is non-refundable; this covers my admin fees and comes off your balance. The final balance is due 2 months before your wedding date but can be paid off in instalments if you wish.
