Minerva Masonic Hall Wedding Photography – Claire & Paul

Minerva Masonic Hall Wedding – Hull Minerva Masonic Lodge 


The Minerva Lodge was established in 1782 making it the oldest surviving Masonic Lodge in the City of Kingston upon Hull and one of the most established in the Province of  North Yorkshire and East Riding. The interior of the ceremony room is incredible, as you can see on the photos!

Claire and Paul chose this unique venue for their wedding day. Claire and Paul asked for my advice in the planning of their day and really took on board everything I told them and their images really reflect that! We had a whole hour together after their ceremony so we took a walk around the Fruit Market area of Hull (and even played a game of ping pong!).

Lots of people in the street congratulated them and we lost count of the amount of cars that beeped their horns! Claire and Paul felt like celebrities! It was a real pleasure to shoot such a relaxed day with a wonderful couple.

Claire’s friend made her bouquet and did all the table styling. She had no prior experience of doing anything like this so we were all super impressed by her natural flair for it! I hope she sets up her own business so she can bring her talent to other wedding days.

Claire and Paul’s friends really know how to party! I think this wedding holds the record for the number of selfies the guests asked me to be in with them. The dancing lasted well into the night and the venue staff even had to run out for an emergency trip to restock as the guests were drinking the bar dry! But that just proves how dedicated this venue is to making a wedding day perfect for their couple: rather than telling guests they had run out of certain drinks they restocked in the middle of the night instead.
