FAQs


Do you still do summer fruits?

2017 will be our last year of pick your own fruit. We apologise for any inconveniences or disappointment to regular and long standing customers.

Do you still do asparagus and rhubarb?

We will continue to grow and sell ready picked asparagus and rhubarb from our Fabulous Flower Shed.

Why are you changing?

The farm is now just 22 acres of glorious Yorkshire countryside and as such the pick your own is no longer a stand alone viable proposition. For the last few years we have supplemented this with weddings but we can’t do any more than 15 due to licensing laws which has ultimately left us with many disappointed couples.

Wedding ideas and inspiration

Boasting years of experience and a blooming portfolio, our in-house floristry team is your number one choice for creating beautiful bouquets, buttonholes, corsages, table decorations, foliage swags, top table overhead garlands, impressive urns and centrepieces for your big day.
 
Our signature style is wild and romantic, however we believe in giving you the freedom to be creative with your day. Your choice of colours and floral arrangements mean you can put your own personal stamp onto our venue, and will give it that magical finishing touch to make your day complete.
 
Here at Wharfedale Grange we use many of our own seasonal blooms and foliage from our own flourishing flower farm, however we also source our flowers from all over the world and we have not only the expertise, but the passion for creating bespoke and stunning schemes.
 
Our floristry design service includes an initial meeting and consultation and an open door to any design queries you may have along the way. We will finally have another meeting six weeks before your wedding, to make sure every last detail is perfect for you. We offer a set-up service on the day -  including the styling and positioning of props and a full take down service at no extra charge.
 
There is no limit to what we can achieve on your wedding day, and we would love to discuss your ideas with you.
 

Top tips for a stress free wedding day

  • Don’t arrange to do too much on the morning of your wedding, stick to appointments in the week before, leaving just hair and make-up on the day.
  • Stop worrying about the the weather, this is England, it will do what it wants.
  • Don't worry, we want you to be a guest at your wedding not a member of staff. Leave all the details to us and your personal event coordinator who you will have formed a relationship with, will be on hand to ensure the smooth running of your perfect day.
  • Make a date with your new spouse during the reception, even if its just for 5 to 10 minutes. There are lots of secret spots here at Wharfedale Grange that only you will know about!
  • Designate an usher or a bridesmaid, ideally one of each and the least shy, to work with your photographer so you can enjoy being the celebrity on your day having your group photos taken, without being the one who has to corral everyone into position.
  • Allocate another bridesmaid or usher to gather keepsakes for you; such as a copy of the program, name cards, wedding menu etc…
  • Remember, this is real life and you can’t control everything… babies will cry, flower girls will have a strop, buttons may drop off!
