Planning Your Big Day…

How will you tie the knot?

Whether you’d like a church wedding or a blessing ceremony Aldby Park is the perfect venue. With a beautiful church outside the entrance gates, or a number of areas perfect for a more personal service, we have your dream wedding covered….


Church Wedding

St John the Evangelist church is situated just 100 yards from the entrance of Aldby Park. This grade II listed church is tucked away down a grassy path and has enough space for up to 120 people.

There are also many local parishes close to Aldby Park which would be more than happy to discuss your wedding plans.


Blessing Ceremony

If a church wedding isn’t for you, why not opt for a more personalised blessing. Aldby Park has a host of garden locations which are perfect for those intimate occasions. From the tiered lawn, which has the perfect backdrops of the stately home, or the more unusual “Lion Cage” area, perfect for more intimate blessings. Your chosen celebrant will create a personalised service, which your guests will always remember…


Reception Drinks

Once you have celebrated your union, it will be time for drinks and canapés.

The Orangery Lawn is perfect to enjoy a glass of fizz or tailored cocktail, and build up the moment when you reveal your chosen marquee.

A Choice of Lawns

Aldby Park has the choice of two immaculately manicured lawns to house your chosen marquee or tipi.

The back lawn is very popular as your marquee/tipi is framed perfectly by the tall conifer trees and the stunning Yorkshire countryside behind, leaving the front lawn open to be used for activities such as lawn games.

This also allows for a perfect view of the stately home and those all important wedding photo’s.


The Front Lawn

The slightly smaller front lawn is perfect for more intimate weddings and recommended for those of under 100 guests.

Guests still have a perfect view of the stately home but will also have an uninterrupted view over the river Derwent and beyond.

The front lawn is closer to the entrance and gravel in front of the house meaning less distance to walk before entering your dream marquee.


Your Wedding, Your Choices

Although Aldby Park have a thorough list of trusted, recommended suppliers, we appreciate that it’s your big day and do allow you to choose any of your preferred suppliers.

The one thing you don’t need to find is a bar supplier. A free pay-as-you-go bar set up is included with every booking.

Your guests will have the opportunity to explore the stunning grounds & gardens. With so many hidden secrets and magical spots, there is always something to amaze.


Dance the Night Away…

The only thing left to do is to enjoy your big day. With drinks flowing and music entertaining until 1am. This means the night is never cut short and everyone has plenty of time to show off their best moves on the dance floor!
