My Favourite Wedding Venues in Yorkshire & Cheshire

So, you’ve finally popped the ‘big’ question–or at least had it popped to you. You’re getting married, and all the excitement has started to bubble up as you begin to plan. The colors, the guest list, the menu, the photographer (that one’s a no-brainer, right?!), it’s all so exciting! But… Where are you going to host the whole thing?

Choosing a wedding venue is one of the hardest decisions a couple has to go through when planning their wedding. Balancing the budget, with location, and aesthetic appeal is all going to be a bit of a headache. Luckily, if you are in or near the Yorkshire or Cheshire area, there is no shortage of amazing wedding venues to choose from. Here are a few of my personal favorites!

Have you ever fantasised about getting married at Hogwarts? Have you ever wanted to have a magical English countryside wedding? Well, you’re in luck! Located in the heart of Cheshire, is the Victorian era castle of Peckforton. This castle was built in the tradition of medieval castles which came before it, and provides visitors with a truly otherworldly feeling. The castle itself sits atop the towering hills of Peckforton, and provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding landscape–you can even see the neighboring ruins of Beeston Castle!

Peckforton Castle is perfect for a wedding venue that provides guests with an enchanted feeling, that is reminiscent of ages long past. This is the perfect venue for encapsulating the ‘old English’ feeling while also remaining luxurious and memorable for wedding-goers.
