A Weekender Wedding At Crayke Manor, York

Crayke Manor Wedding, North Yorkshire

If you’re planning a wedding at Crayke Manor in York, you’ll love this wedding for inspiration


Sarah and Dan got married at Crayke Manor, which is a stunning country house in York. Built in 1620, and covering 16 acres, This picturesque estate in the heart of Yorkshire is the perfect setting for your big day! The couple found the venue on airbnb and booked it for their friends and family for the whole weekend!

The ceremony was a personal service conducted by a friend (as the couple forgot to book a registrar in time!) and was held outdoors in the gardens. During the ceremony they had beautiful readings from friends and family, and all the guests were given a ribbon to tie on their seated neighbours wrist, it was so beautiful and personal. They finished the ceremony with their friend on ukulele and a sing along!

The reception took place in the beautifully decorated old covered barn, the couple had lots of speeches, including the brides parents delivering a brilliant A to Z of their relationship! Food was provided by the amazing Baba Ganoush (I love it when these guys cater weddings, the food is delish!) After photos, garden games and drinks round the firepit, the guests were in for a treat with evening entertainment from the brilliant Rock N Soulers; when the first dance is Blink182 you know its going to be an ace party! 

Crayke Manor is one of my favourite places to have a wedding in North Yorkshire – it is perfect for couples who want a private wedding, and offers long weekend packages. Sarah and Dan's wedding was coordinated by the lovely Lindsay from LW Events, I'd highly recommend getting a wedding planner to do all the coordinating, leaving you to enjoy your wedding day without any stress!
