Allerton Castle, Yorkshire
Allerton Castle is a gorgeous 18th century castle and one of the finest 5* venues in the North of England just outside York, set in 25 acres of grounds and was once owned by Prince Frederick better known as the ‘Grand Old Duke of York’.
A fairytale setting with various stunning spacious grounds outside and breathtaking rooms inside, both offering truly stunning backdrops throughout your wedding day.
One of my favourite rooms is the Drawing Room, with it’s unique 100% blue silk damask walls and gorgeous high ceiling sporting the most amazing chandelier I’ve ever seen (9ft 2 inches tall!), and also considered to be the finest Venitian Chandelier in England.
Then there’s the Great Hall, towering almost 70 feet, it is amongst the tallest country house ceilings and boasts an extraordinary hammer beam ceiling reminiscent of the Henry VIII Banqueting Hall at Hampton Court and the Great Hall at the Palace of Westminster.
The Great Hall is located in the centre of the Castle and where your wedding ceremony is held. Walking down the great staircase from the extensive bridal suite, you make your spectacular entrance, greeted with the view of your wedding guests and your groom waiting for you at the other end of the alter.
