What’s included?

All bookings taken will be for your personal and exclusive use only. The price quoted is for the exclusive hire of our fully heated and air-conditioned authentic farmhouse-luxe style barns which feature a wealth of design-led elements throughout; including rustic reclaimed timbers, original stonework, industrial ironwork and soft velvets in our trademark colours.

Our beautiful Yorkshire barn wedding venue includes a bridal preparation suite large enough for the bride and her bridesmaids to get ready in, a ceremony room with galleried balcony and seating, superb themed washrooms featuring a bespoke bride’s cloakroom, essential gossip room, optional built-in Prosecco bar and an easy access washroom with baby changing facilities.

Also included is a professional standard kitchen space for your chosen caterer, a fabulous fully stocked and staffed cocktail bar designed by top London bar designers Wignall & Moore (with bar not hotel prices) and proper cask conditioned beer. There are also several mezzanine areas throughout adorned with relaxed seating and an extra cozy log burner. Our main event is the superb deluxe farmhouse banqueting hall with an industrial edge, designer tables and chairs, vintage chandeliers and the biggest mirror ball you have ever seen over a dance floor; complete with stage, lighting and our state-of-the-art sound system for your chosen band/DJ.

Outside you will find lots of great photo opportunities including our classic English garden, orchard, wildflower meadows and beautiful courtyard.

Upon confirmation of your booking you will be invited to have a chat with our Events Manager to discuss your drinks requirements and meet your personal Wedding Coordinator who will be able to help you with the organisation of every aspect of your big day here, whether to ensure your Dad’s favourite beer is on tap, to looking after any of your chosen outside suppliers on the day. We ensure every moment of your big day at Wharfedale Grange runs without a hitch.

You will still need to book your chosen caterer, any entertainment, florist and photographer. However, don’t worry, you will have two wedding day co-ordinators on hand to help 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.
  • 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…
