Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
Because every Couple gets the chance to express themselves entirely as they wish, from the catering to the band, I love the fact every one of the weddings held at Crayke Manor is so idiosyncratic and personal to the Couple I get to know
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
It's you two getting married - everyone else is just there to celebrate it with you. So, make sure you do what YOU want to do!
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
There are so many! I know one Bride to be, who spent two years collecting rose petals from her Mum's garden to dry them and use them as confetti! Love the dedication and passion :)
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Amazing, spectacular, intimate,
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
Standing on the little bridge that connects the lawns to the meadows, looking back at the Manor House, the lawns and the Barn - the perfect backdrop for all those amazing wedding shots :)
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Yes but discretion is key
What’s your favourite canapé?
Those little Yorkshire puds with roast beef and horseradish inside
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Pizza fresh from the Pizza truck (you can hire them to cater at the Manor for those midnight munchies)
What is your venue's most unique feature?
I think it has to be the combo of the barn and the Manor sitting alongside. You just don't get the two together like this. It's like having the best of both a Stately Home and a Barn venue
What part of your business are you most proud of?
She's called Sharon. She was our nanny for 20 x years and she's now the Ops. Manager. She knows everything there is to know. She will show you round and answer all your questions. And nothing is too much. She's a real keeper!
