About Markenfield Hall
A romantic, enchanting castle wedding venue in Ripon, near Harrogate. Licensed for civil ceremonies for Intimate weddings of up to 35 guests.
Markenfield Hall, its outline reflected in the encircling moat, provides a wonderfully intimate venue for a wedding. Hidden in the rolling North Yorkshire countryside, yet within easy reach of Ripon, Harrogate and Leeds, Markenfield Hall is a unique and beautiful venue for a small wedding.
Your Day, Your Way… Unlike many venues, Markenfield Hall does not offer a fixed wedding package. Because of the intimate nature of the Hall, and the guarantee that yours will be the only wedding here on the day, we are able to tailor your day to your needs.
Because it is our private home we take a lot of trouble to ensure you have everything you want. With a variety of rooms available, as well as our own private chapel, the gardens within the moat, the black swans who will probably visit you in the orchard and the cows from the farm often peering across the moat fence to see what’s going on; we can tailor a bespoke day that will live in your’s and your guests memories for ever.
The Hall is available for shorter times - the Ceremony and a Drinks Reception with Photographs in the Grounds, or you be here for the whole day and hold your Wedding Breakfast in the baronial splendor of the Great Hall. Whatever you choose to do, your Guests will be delighted and we think you will be too.
Markenfield Hall is not just a wedding venue – it has 700 years of history held within its walls – why not add your slice of history to ours by holding your most special of days here?
