The county Yorkshire in the UK is host to an amazing range of wonderful wedding venues. There are elegant country house hotels in stunning locations, romantic castles and five star hotels in the larger cities.
No need to keep to the main venues though. Yorkshire has numerous market, spa and coastal towns set within the glorious ‘God’s Own’ countryside which also includes three national parks. Whether looking for the perfect spot for an intimate wedding or the grand ballroom statement there is bound to be something suitable in Yorkshire.
Look at York, Harroagate or Sheffield to find a large range of wonderfully sophisticated and smart venues that provide the modern feel to exquisite 18th century furnished rooms and facilities.
Many of the top wedding venues have wonderfully restored architecture whether Edwardian or Victorian. You will find something that appeals to you in this varied selection of stately to more modern buildings and event facilities. Stair cases made to serve as stunning backdrops to wedding photographs and cuisine to please even the most jaded palettes.
Whether famous cricket grounds such as Headingley, football clubs or horse race courses, Yorkshire has an extensive selection in these plus more sporting venues. Well geared to handling crowds efficiently and carefully these facilities offer everything from excellently appointed banquet halls to small intimate rooms for private functions.
Sporting venues are run by staff highly experienced in the hospitality industry and are qualified to arrange all aspects of a wedding whether for a party of twenty or two hundred guests.
Churches, Abbeys & Priories
Yorkshire offers anything from tiny chapels to Medieval market town churches, to grand Minsters. If you are looking for a church wedding this is definitely a county that will serve up a huge selection.
Find a virtually untouched medieval church in idyllic rural setting or an ornately impressive Victorian building in a busy town centre. Your choice is vast. Consider All Saints, Harewood House dating from 1419 or Holy Trinity Old Church Wentworth which had its start in the 15th century.
Not old enough? Holy Trinity Church Wensley was built on 8th-century Saxon foundations. The 13th-century church sits on the bank of a river. Let’s also not forget York Minster which dominates the skyline of this historic city. It’s claim to fame is that it is the largest medieval gothic cathedral north of the Alps. It has traces of every age from the Roman occupation of York, and is home to over 800 years of stained glass.
Then let’s go even older with Selbey Abbey, one of the most notable parish churches in the country, founded in 1069 by Monk Benedict.
