Rise Hall Wedding: Becca & George

Becca & George were married in the magnificent Rise Hall situated in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England in 27 acres of landscaped grounds and surrounded by idyllic countryside with beautiful views. The Hall was built by architects Watson and Pritchett between 1815 and 1820 for the High Sheriff of Yorkshire, Richard Bethell and remained the Bethell family seat until after the Second World War when it was leased to St Philomenas Convent School. After the school closed, the house stood empty and in an increasingly derelict state, until television presenter, Sarah Beeny from Channel 4’s Property Ladder and Graham Swift bought it in 2001 and began renovations.
