The feel

For 700 years Ripley Castle has been the quintessential essence of Yorkshire romance.

From the moment you enter the village, Ripley stands apart: it is beautiful, historic, and picture postcard perfect. When it comes to organising weddings, few venues can match our years of experience, professionalism, and ability to turn visions into reality. Ripley offers a range of great inclusive packages, with no hidden costs so you know exactly where you are when budgeting for your big day.

All our catering is done ‘in-house’ and the castle has established a great reputation for excellence and reliability when it comes to serving fine cuisine and good wines.

A number of the castle’s main reception rooms are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies. The 16th century oak-panelled Library lends a fabulous air of history and dignity to the proceedings, but some couples prefer to use one of the lighter Georgian rooms. The spectacular Long Gallery in the East Wing seats up to 120 people.

Dedicated wedding co-ordinators sit down with you to prepare a detailed programme for the day so that everybody knows who is doing what and when. At Ripley there is always someone at your shoulder; to answer queries, offer advice, receive instructions and help however they can, whatever the question.

*Dedicated Wedding Co-ordinators to help you plan your day

*Packages with no hidden costs so you know where you are when planning your big day.

*Quality cuisine

*Impeccable service.

*Picture postcard perfect, a dream setting for your wedding photographs.

*History and Heritage
