Luxury Yorkshire Wedding Venues
Yorkshire has always been one of, if not the most beautiful county in England with sprawling countryside, the Yorkshire Dales, the North Yorkshire Moors and the Yorkshire coastline. The historic White Rose county is the largest in the United Kingdom and home to the beautiful and historic city of York along with the exciting cities of Leeds and Sheffield. Yorkshire has always had some fantastic wedding venues, however over the past few years there have been a number of new, luxury wedding venues opening across the county. Here’s more detail on some of James’ favourite venues:
Thicket Priory in Thorganby, just outside of York, is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in North Yorkshire. Opened in 2019, it is a Grade II-listed Victorian priory that has now been beautifully restored to create one of North Yorkshire’s finest private houses for exclusive use weddings.
Thicket Priory is the perfect venue for a weekend wedding event, with a first class team on hand, it’s the perfect venue for a luxury wedding weekend, with 34 en-suite rooms, a ballroom for up to 160 guests, it’s own private chapel, 18 acres of manicured grounds, a private lake, boathouse and helipad.
James is one of Thicket Priory’s recommended wedding film makers so is very familiar with the venue and all it’s quirks and hidden beauty,
Grantley Hall is a spectacularly luxurious wedding venue situated in the Yorkshire Dales. A short drive from Ripon, Grantley Hall is one of the most stunning venues for a wedding in all of Yorkshire. Opening in 2019, it is another relative newcomer to Yorkshire weddings and sets an exceptionally high standard for luxury wedding venues. A 47 bedroom,5 star hotel, it is also the home to Michelin starred restaurant Shaun Rankin at Grantley Hall.
Wedding ceremonies take place in either the beautiful Music Room, or outdoors by the Japanese Garden. Champagne and canapés take place in The Orchard, with views of the beautiful estate. Grantley Hall can accommodate up to 180 guests for your wedding reception with use of the Valeria’s Champagne bar for your late night celebrations.
Middleton Lodge Estate
Middleton Lodge Estate is situated close to Richmond, North Yorkshire (very close to Scotch Corner on the A1) and is a beautiful Georgian country estate. Restoration work has been ongoing since 2014 and the estate now has 36 bedrooms, two restaurants and a wellness spa.
Middleton Lodge Estate is a beautiful venue in Yorkshire and it has the option of two seperate wedding venues, either the 16 bedroom Main House or the unique Fig House and Walled Garden. James has experience of filming at both venues and Middleton Lodge is a venue that looks beautiful from every angle and it’s easy to see why Middleton Lodge is another one of James’s favourite venues for a luxury wedding.
The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey
The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey, near to Skipton, is a very popular wedding venue managed by Cripps & Co, who manage many of the very best wedding venues across the U.K. The Tithe Barn is the ideal venue if you are looking for a venue with a huge capacity, with space for 200 guests for the ceremony and feast and up to 300 people for the drinking and dancing.
The Tithe Barn has views over the remains of Bolton Abbey and the spectacular rolling hill of the Bolton Abbey Estate. Another venue James knows well and has extensive experience of filming at, the Tithe Barn is a more relaxed setting for larger celebrations and has a superb team on hand to ensure the day runs perfectly.
Newby Hall in Ripon is set within 40 acres of land with stunning gardens and manicured lawns. Newby is a truly unique setting in which to entertain wedding guests. The elegant 17th Century Wren house and its exquisite Adam interiors provides a unique and beautiful venue.
