The best day of our lives… so far!
I’m not one to usually write reviews but want to specially mention Crathorne Hall Hotel. The way they handled our COVID wedding was exemplary: Wedding date change, no problem. Guests being told to isolate literally days before the wedding, no problem. The sign of a great venue, thank you Crathorne Hall Hotel.

The best day!
We booked Crathorne for our wedding after our original venue was unwilling to hold smaller weddings (due to the pandemic). This was the best decision we made! The staff were so helpful throughout the build up to the wedding and the team were willing to be flexible and work around whatever the restrictions would be when the big day came. We finally got married in June (14 months after our original date) and had an amazing day with our nearest and dearest. Despite some restrictions still being in place at that time, the staff made the day feel as normal as possible and we all had a brilliant time. The venue is lovely and quality of the food and drink was excellent. Our wedding planner, Stacey, was so helpful and our toastmaster, Mo, ensured that the whole day went smoothly. We’re looking forward to returning to Crathorne in the future to celebrate our anniversary!

Thank you soo much for everything you did...
Thank you soo much for everything you did to help make our wedding day as perfect as it was! The whole process from our first meeting up to the big day was made soo easy and fuss free by your organisation and kindness - we really couldn't have done it without you. The day was perfect from start to finish, a huge thank you to Mo who had everything under control and did everything we asked for and more! He is a star!! The rooms looked perfect and totally exceeded my expectations of how I wanted them to look, I was blown away! All the staff are amazing and not just on the wedding day but throughout the whole time we have been planning our wedding, every time we have visited Crathorne hall we have been met by lovely polite and helpful staff who can't do enough for you! Thank you all! I don't really know what else to say but thank you thank you thank you!!! You are all amazing! All our love Mr & Mrs Kennedy

The day was fantastic, it was absolutely perfect..
Can we just take this opportunity to say that the day was just fantastic, it was absolutely perfect. The staff really are a credit to Crathorne and couldn’t have done any more on the day. Your regular suppliers that we used (First Class Wedding Company, LMS Entertainment, Ultimate Wedding DJ) were great to work with and it shows that you have a close working relationship with them. We have received such wonderful feedback from our guests, and we really wanted it to be a weekend that everyone would enjoy, and it certainly was that! We feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Crathorne in our search for a venue (Chris feels smug as he found it!) and it really was the exclusive yet intimate venue that we dreamed of finding! Thank you so much for making our dream day possible. Rachel and Christopher Parker Image by

I just wanted to say how brilliant our day was...
I just wanted to say how brilliant our day was...from start to finish. It ran perfectly without fault, Mo was fantastic! He did not stop all day and has the patience of a saint. Such a lovely man. Nicola, thank you for all your hard work on the run up to the day. Having someone like yourself really does make the experience of planning a wedding so much easier. Thank you so much for only being an email away. Thanks again to all the staff that helped make our day so special. Mr and Mrs Collins P.s. We've found the perfect place for our Crathorne Bear. What a lovely little touch!!

Everything was fabulous.
My son was married here in August, Everything was fabulous, the staff could not do enough for you, from the minute we arrived on the morning of the wedding until when we left the next day. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was superb and of course it goes without saying Crathorne Hall itself is just stunning. We had the best day ever.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Two gentlemen took the hotel for the full weekend. They were very much foodies and had quite specific requests and although the wedding itself wasn’t huge in numbers it was very particular for each day. They arrived the day before all of their guests to relax before the full weekend, then the Friday when all the guests arrived they had a buffet with items specific to the local area with a murder mystery theme in the hotel lounge, the following day they had their ceremony in the afternoon followed by Champagne afternoon tea with all their guests. They then all retired to their bedrooms to get ready for the dinner in the evening which was a seven course menu. They had given our chef free rein with 4 of the courses with specifics they had chosen for the other courses, finishing with an individual mini 3 tier wedding cake per person. There was also a band to lead them into the late evening. The following morning they all met for breakfast to talk about the day and night before, before departing the hotel in the afternoon. They were a delight to work with and gave some lovely feedback from them and their guests following their wedding.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

To make sure that you are organised with all of your wedding planning but to also remember to have fun at the same time. It should be an enjoyable experience! It is your special day and one which is completely focused on the two of you!

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

One of our Grooms was a professional musician and he played the bride and bridal party into the ceremony room by singing their favourite song and playing the acoustic guitar. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

– Elegant – Grand – Exclusive – Romantic – Breath-taking

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

The stone steps in our woodland area framed by stone griffins with the grand hall as the backdrop has got to be a favourite, especially in the spring time with the carpet of bluebells adding a burst of colour to the shot!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

We are always very discrete with regards to our wedding couples and everyone is made to feel like a celebrity for the day!

What’s your favourite canapé?

As we are situated in North Yorkshire, our favourite canape has to be Mini Toad in the Hole with Shallot Jus, featuring the Yorkshire pudding and locally sourced sausages. The perfect treat for weddings all year round!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our New Year's Eve weddings are not complete without Champagne and a bacon roll at midnight!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

Our exclusive use weddings have the grounds and gardens included which allow for fantastic photos on the front lawns with the backdrop of the hotel - it really does make for a stunning picture. The image of the hotel is iconic and highly recognisable.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We pride ourselves on our friendliness and high quality of service. We are so proud of how our team all work together to make sure that everyone’s wedding day is perfect and a day to always remember and cherish.
