So many people in the wedding industry say you should start with your venue first, but they’re assuming you know exactly where it is you want to look for your venue. Here are six of our favourite spots in North Yorkshire…
Apart from York’s obvious beauty and character, it’s a great location for a wedding simply because of the amount of wedding venues you have to choose from. Cities are generally the most populous in wedding venues and York is the biggest city in this area so if it’s choice and variety you’re after, focus on York. Not to mention quality; more venues equals more quality venues.
Perhaps you’re after a beach wedding, somewhere you can feel the sea breeze rush through your hair and the sand between your toes and just relax. Whitby is one of North Yorkshire’s best coastal towns, and it has a great selection of wedding venues of its own. Just imagine the gorgeous typical British coastal town pics you’ll get on the day!
Harrogate is a spa town east of the Yorkshire Dales. It’s home to the famous Betty’s Tea Rooms and abundance of other well known attractions. It’s great for weddings because it’s somewhere right between a city and the open countryside, so you benefit from the practicality of being within reach of major roads and transport networks whilst still enjoying gorgeous country views.
For the very best countryside wedding with the very best views, it has to be the Yorkshire Dales. Famous worldwide for their beauty, the Dales are an uncompromising offer of peaceful serenity and stunning backdrops on your wedding day.
Whitby is a beautiful coastal town, but it doesn’t quite have the beach like Scarborough does. If a really beachy vibe is important to you rather than just a coastal one, this location is probably your best choice in North Yorkshire. It’s of course undeniably beautiful too.
NORTH YORK MOORS
And finally, the North York Moors. Think the Yorkshire Dales with a little more heather and a little smaller in size. That’s not to say it’s small though. The North York Moors occupies 600 square miles, so you’re sure to find a beautiful wedding venue in this corner of North Yorkshire.
