Full Description
Markenfield Hall, its outline reflected in the encircling moat, provides a wonderfully intimate venue for a wedding. Hidden in the rolling North Yorkshire countryside, yet within easy reach of Ripon, Harrogate and Leeds, Markenfield Hall is a unique and beautiful venue for a small wedding. Your Day… Unlike many venues, Markenfield Hall does not offer a fixed wedding package. Because of the intimate nature of the Hall, and the guarantee that yours will be the only wedding here on the day, we are able to tailor your day to your needs. Because it is our private home we take a lot of trouble to ensure you have everything you want. With a variety of rooms available, as well as our own private chapel, the gardens within the moat, the black swans who will probably visit you in the orchard and the cows from the farm often peering across the moat fence to see what’s going on; we can tailor a bespoke day that will live in your’s and your guests' memories for ever.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Sarah
Markenfield is a stunning family home that welcomes you with open arms - we're as excited about you special day as you are, and will do everything we possibly can to make it as memorable for you and your guests as we possibly can. The Hall isn't for everyone - we don't offer dancing until dawn, drunken carousing or marquees seating 10,000 of your closest family. What we do offer is a unique setting in which to enjoy the company of 35 of your nearest and dearest whilst you make your vows.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Possibly Wilma the Pug in her diamante Bridesmaid t-shirt...

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

Remember it is about the marriage and not the wedding - you don't need to put yourselves in debt to have a great day. Concentrate on the emotions, make the memories, and your guests will love you all the more for it. Too much of life is just for show these days.

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

Can I say Wilma the Pug...?
