North Yorkshire Wedding Venues
I am a North Yorkshire Wedding Photographer, and I am lucky enough to be able to photograph amazing couples at some of the Norths best wedding venues.
I live in Guisborough which straddles the North Yorkshire border. I have lived in this beautiful part of the world for most of my life. I get asked a lot which are the best wedding venues, but that question is almost impossible to answer. North Yorkshire has some beautiful wedding venues that are all different. If you are looking for a barn, stately home or something a little more quirky like a steam train wedding, then North Yorkshire has something for everyone.
Here are some North Yorkshire Wedding venues you should check out.
Danby Castle was constructed in the fourteenth century by the Latimer family, whose members included some of the most powerful nobles of medieval England. It was built to replace an earlier castle located in Castleton which was destroyed by fire. It is believed that some of the stone from the castle in Castleton was used to build Danby Castle. Danby was a quadrangular castle, which consisted of a rectangular building with a central courtyard and towers at each corner
The Barn boasts its authentic wooden beams adorned with fairy lights, original 14th Century stonework, a varnished wooden floor and a real wood-burning stove to create the perfect atmosphere for your wedding breakfast and evening reception.
Raven Hall Hotel
Raven Hall Country House Hotel in Ravenscar is dramatically situated 600 feet above sea level, overlooking Robin Hood’s Bay in the North York Moors National Park and midway between Whitby and Scarborough. Raven Hall is in an inspirational and historical setting and a perfect choice for your next trip to North Yorkshire.
Gisborough Hall Hotel
Located on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, Gisborough Hall is a luxury home from home retreat. Whether you are looking for a short relaxing break, a unique venue to host a special occasion or a base to explore the countryside by foot, bike or even classic car, Gisborough Hall’s beautiful surroundings, quality food and attentive service will deliver a memorable experience.
Crab and Lobster
The Crab and Lobster restaurant opened in the Yorkshire village of Asenby in 1991, quickly gaining a reputation for excellent food. Following this, a Grade II Listed 18th Century Georgian Manor House was purchased, and Crab Manor was born, becoming a B&B with seven themed bedrooms. Today, ‘the Crab’ is an award-winning, independent, two AA Rosette restaurant, and Crab Manor is now a 20 bedroom 5-star hotel, as we strive to continuously improve and provide the best experience and exceptional service for our guests.
