The Cliff at Lyons has potentially zillions of gorgeous wedding photo spots, but we're highlighting six favourites that you absolutely can't leave out.

Plenty of factors are important when choosing a wedding venue. Will it cater for the number of guests you plan on having, is the top one. Does it fit in with the style or theme of the wedding you're planning? Will it fit within your budget? That's before you even get to the nitty gritty factors... However, we'd be lying if we didn't say that locations to take gorgeous wedding photos is also on the list.

With that in mind, we asked the wedding team at our Venue of the Month for January Cliff at Lyons, to tell us about the top six locations in and around their venue that couples love, that ensure totally stunning wedding photos. Take it away, team!
