Comments from Paul Martin:
York House is a beautiful building with an abundance of history in an idylic location near to the Thames. The stately surroundings of 17th century York House include elegant rooms for holding your marriage ceremony and gardens which sweep down to the River Thames, providing a perfect setting for wedding photographs. Also with reception rooms to cater for wedding breakfasts and evening entertainment.

The Terrace Room and Salon are both approved for civil marriage ceremonies and the rooms are available on Friday afternoons, Saturdays and Sundays.

The Terrace Room is an elegant room with French windows leading directly out onto the Terrace and gardens. It can accommodate up to 50 wedding guests, with 40 seated. The Salon is an ornate room overlooking the driveway at the front of the house, with accommodation for up to 70 guests seated. It is available Saturdays and Sundays for ceremonies when combined with receptions, and Friday afternoons for ceremonies with or without receptions.

Receptions

The following rooms can be hired individually or in conjunction with each other to suit your needs:
The Salon – an ideal room for a wedding breakfast and accommodates a maximum of 70 people seated banquet style.
The Hyde Room – accommodates up to 70 people banquet style and is suitable for an evening dance or disco.
The Clarendon Hall – offers accommodation for approx 150-200 banquet style and is also suitable for an evening dance or disco.

I have photographed several events at York House, and have always found it to be a delightful venue for varied and creative wedding photography. The gardens and steps outside the Terrace Room provides an idyle location for groups and informal photographs. The gardens sweeping down to the Thames has many niches for creative bride and groom portraits. Indoors, the ornate features and decor provides some very good situations. Photographic highlights, primarily portraits, of one of my recent weddings at York House (below), demonstrates the possibilities for some truly creaive and memorable portraiture.

In summary, I rate York House very highly as an excellent venue for weddings in Twickenham and for producing creative wedding photographs.
