Weddings At East Riddlesden Hall – Traditionally Awesome

Tucked away in West Yorkshire lies the absolutely gorgeous 17th century manor house, East Riddlesden Hall (now owned by The National Trust). Though it lies just outside of an urban area, the lush landscape, rustic design and native wildlife will have you both feeling hours away from the city and more like Miss. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy taking one of their flirty walks through the picturesque countryside. As a matter of fact, the 1992 movie, ‘Wuthering Heights’ was actually filmed at East Riddlesden Hall for its stunning grounds, and it’s easy imagine it as a backdrop to the 1847 published story.

Weddings At East Riddlesden Hall – Your Ceremony

While The Great Hall is for smaller ceremonies, The Great Airedale Barn is the real draw of the venue which can be used for larger ceremonies or for your awesome reception party afterwards. As an interesting factoid, it also remains mostly unchanged since the 17th century, so the impressive oak rafters and stone interiors already offer a vintage, medieval slash bohemian feel that can be accessorized to your heart’s content. Unlike many regal manor house venues today, The Great Barn is a rustic blank canvas just waiting for your unique stamp on it, so it’s ideal for creative couples with a range of funky style ideas. The barn doors can be left wide open, meaning your ceremonies can be safely inside but maintain an airy, outdoor feel to them (even if it’s raining).

Weddings At East Riddlesden Hall – The Grounds

East Riddlesden Hall has a diverse landscape offering a variety of silly playtime activities, from rambling along trails, to feeding ducks, to visiting an old medicinal herb garden. There’s almost too many shenanigans to keep you smiling and busty and there’s plenty of space for you to bring your own entertainment, too.

With meadowlands and formal gardens, the nature surrounding the venue is nothing short of ridiculously Instagram-able. The garden and grounds offer greenery for as far as the eye can see, and the stunning variety of colours from the flowers and trees will have even the most afflicted of Hayfever suffers popping the antihistamines to get outside for a handful of selfies.
