7 Of The Best Yorkshire Wedding Venues (with reviews)

Being the largest County by area size in the United Kingdom, and known for its sprawling countryside, including two national parks, it’s not surprising that Yorkshire has an abundance of quality Wedding venues within its borders. If you’re currently on the hunt for your perfect venue, we’re pleased to be able to help, as we outline seven of the very best, based on our experiences of working within them and with their team to deliver our client's beautiful wedding decor ideas in Yorkshire.

Elizabeth James Events at The Woodman Inn, Thunderbridge, Huddersfield

The Woodman Inn, Thunderbridge, Huddersfield

An absolute hidden gem, this 5* 18th Century Inn, positioned at the foot of the Pennines, and set amongst beautiful woodland gardens of the Yorkshire countryside makes for the perfect Country Wedding venue.

Made up of two separate venues – A cosy space for more intimate Weddings within the Inn itself, as well as the larger Garden Room, set in secluded woodland gardens – It can cater for Weddings of all sizes.

And we’re pleased to personally confirm that the staff here are just as lovely as the surroundings they work in!  Having supplied to Weddings here very regularly over the past 6 years we can genuinely say that we have enjoyed every single one!  Professional and efficient in their communications, whilst never missing an opportunity for a nicety, but most notably, nothing their couples request is ever too much to ask for them.

So if you’re searching for the perfect place to say you ‘I dos’ take our word for it and give this place a go!

Elizabeth James Events at Manor House, Lindley, Huddersfield

Manor House, Lindley, Huddersfield

If a sophisticated, unique and high-end interior-design finish is what you’re after, then the Manor House Lindley simply has to be your first stop!  The style across this whole venue is completely ‘wow’ yet subtle enough for you still to add your own personalisation.  I challenge you to find anywhere comparable in it’s unique style, and yet it’s beauty, I am sure, will still most certainly appeal to most.

The venue has various indoor spaces on offer, all individual in their style yet complimentary to each other, and each varies in size, so it can be suitable for Weddings big and small.  There are also multiple outdoor offerings, including a stunningly preened and secluded garden out from the main Coach House, as well as a rather ‘cool’ roof terrace.

The hotel has 10 luxurious rooms and an apartment so there is plenty of room for you and your lucky guests to indulge for a little longer than the Wedding day itself!

Manor House Lindley’s staff are an absolute credit to the venue and truly reflect the polished finish.  They are totally on the ball when it comes to logistics, and a real pleasure to be around, which means we absolutely love that we’re involved with Weddings so regularly here and are always keen to collaborate on the venue’s own events too.

Elizabeth James Events at Middleton Lodge, Richmond

Middleton Lodge, Richmond

The furthest North of our picks, the stunning Middleton Lodge is not far from the border with Durham, but since it is conveniently located just a few miles off of the M1 it is nice and easy for us to get to, as it will be for your guests! So most definitely do not count it out for this reason – I assure you it will be well worth the drive!

Middleton Lodge has multiple venues in one, including the beautiful main house and permanent marquee, as well as the super special Fig House with stunning walled garden, not forgetting the trendy cellar bar which serves as a perfect after-party space!  We’ve been lucky enough to dress each one of these spaces, and every one is as great as the other.

The accommodation does not disappoint here either – if you’re wanting luxury stays for your bridal party you’re in the right place and you lucky couples of the future will even get to benefit from the absolutely incredible brand new Forest spa which looks simply divine!

We always enjoy working with the super helpful staff here, who are proficient in running the smoothest of events for their adored couples.

Elizabeth James Events at The Tithe Barn, Bolton Abbey

The Tithe Barn, Bolton Abbey

The Tithe Barn at Bolton Abbey is one of the renowned Cripps & Co-owned Wedding barns, and just like all of their other venues that we’ve been lucky enough to work at, it has been purpose-converted to function perfectly as a Wedding venue yet finished so sympathetically that it retains all of it’s wonderful character with a luxury edge.

A lovely large open space, the barn has beautiful areas for ceremony, dance floor and your reception, and the super high-vaulted ceiling with all the exposed beams gives a characterful yet neutral backdrop for you to create the day you really want.

Accustomed to delivering multiple Weddings every week, in our experience the venue runs like clockwork with all team members contributing to a stress-free Wedding planning experience, beautiful day and party finish!

Situated within the stunning countryside of Bolton Abbey, close to the lovely Ilkley and Skipton, any guests visiting from outside of Yorkshire will most certainly be impressed with what they see of Yorkshire and are spoilt for choice when it comes to staying nearby!

Elizabeth James Events at The Oakwood at Ryther, Tadcaster

The Oakwood at Ryther, Tadcaster

If you’re dreaming of a barn Wedding with character, but also like modern clean lines this is the one for you, as it combines the two styles perfectly!  This venue comes with the luxury of space, having a totally separate ceremony hall to Reception space, both of large proportions, so your day is sure to run smoothly and rather impressively.  All configured around a stunningly preened courtyard, that also has the incredibly luxurious accommodation facing on to it, this place really becomes a home from home for the duration of your stay.

Conveniently located close to Tadcaster, this venue might feel like it’s totally out in the sticks once you’re there, but in reality it’s a really reasonable drive from anywhere across the County, and especially local to those from the Leeds area.

A totally family-run venue, the team here couldn’t be more invested in creating your perfect day in their lovingly restored Farm buildings, and they have done the most fantastic job in bringing this ultra-luxury venue to life, ensuring that every box is ticked and more!

Elizabeth James Events at Saltmarshe Hall, Howden

Saltmarshe Hall, Howden

When I think of Georgian halls, the vision that comes to mind is almost exactly Saltmarshe Hall!  Absolute picture perfection, with grounds fronted by the River Ouse and spanning 17  beautiful acres, it is totally understandable that this is the type of place that so many would have dreamt of getting married in when they were little girls and boys!

With a number of spaces on offer indoors and out, you are spoilt for choice, but the largest of the indoor spaces is quite sublime!  Recently extended to cater for an even higher number, ‘The  Morning Room’ is just so special - Totally neutrally finished, with huge traditional style windows and the most wonderful skylights, the room is clean-line perfection, and absolutely flooded with light.

The staff at Saltmarshe Hall ensure that the whole Hall is yours for the day, and you get their undivided attention, meaning this slice of Yorkshire paradise allows you to feel like real Royalty for your special day.

Elizabeth James Events at Bunny Hill Weddings, North Cliffe

Bunny Hill Weddings, North Cliffe

A picture-perfect barn converted with a modern finish, including swanky cocktail-bar vibe mezzanine, and yet with panoramic countryside views, there really isn’t anything your left wishing for at this beautiful venue.  Add luxury accommodation, including a bridal suite of dreams (with hot tub!), as well as a field suitable for bell tents for your mates to stay affordably and this entire space has everything your dream Wedding venue could need.

Options for a beautiful outdoor ceremony, as well as a stunning Garden Room configured perfectly for an indoor ceremony still making the most of the views of the grounds, and space for 200 of your nearest and dearest seated, this large venue can accommodate those with larger guest list numbers (a further 100 people can be invited to the evening party!)!

This special venue has been developed from the ground by its owners, and is still run by this lovely family who are absolutely dedicated to giving their couples the very best day possible, and we just love our trips out to Bunnyhill to work with them all!  Beautifully positioned in the quiet North Cliffe, but just 15 minutes off the M62 between Leeds and Hull, the trave time is convenient no matter which side of the County you’re from!
