We meet Melissa and Philip who had a traditional exclusive use wedding in Yorkshire at Crathorne Hall Hotel.

"We didn’t view any other wedding venues apart from Crathorne Hall and instantly fell in love with it. We loved the inside decor, the grounds, and the overall feel of the place. The exclusive use wedding package sealed the deal for us as it was perfect to accommodate our wedding numbers and was very reasonably priced for what you get. We wanted to have our ceremony and reception all in one place to avoid travel for our guests which we were also able to do at this country house hotel in Yarm.

Our colour scheme was navy, blush pinks and creams. We wanted a traditional wedding so opted for neutral colours which were complimented by Crathorne's interior beautifully.

We loved the whole day and it was exactly what we wanted, however the ceremony in the Edwardian Room was our favourite part. When you are planning a wedding, you can get swept away in menu choices, decoration decisions etc and forget about the main point of the day which is to get married. We loved the simple yet beautiful layout of the ceremony room which we decorated mainly with flowers and would highly recommend Northallerton registrars as they were fantastic from start to finish.

The service and food we received on the day was 5* and we can’t recommend Crathorne enough for a wedding or event. Nathan in particular was superb running our day. We felt confident that all the staff knew what they were doing and that nothing was too much trouble for them. The day was perfect and exactly how we had envisaged it, and this is largely due to the staff at Crathorne. 

All the suppliers recommended by Crathorne were fantastic and we hope they continue to do well in the industry.
