Hornington Manor (3)

We’ve invited the lovely Hannah from Hornington Manor to get the party started and tell us more…!

Where is Hornington Manor located?

hornington manor say: Our venue located in the picturesque village of Bolton Percy, nestled into the rolling North Yorkshire countryside. It is approximately ten miles from the historic city of York, and less than 20 miles from the bustling city of Leeds. With easy access from the A1 and M1 motorways – great for travelling guests.

Tell Brides Up North about the venue, what is its history?

Hornington Manor was built in 1770 and is set on a beautiful 300-acre working farm. The Grade II listed farm house was lovingly restored when farm was brought back to life in 2009 by local bed-makers Harrison Spinks, with the aim of growing some of its own natural mattress fillings. The 18th century Hornington Manor wedding barn was, until very recently, nothing more than a lambing barn.

Is Hornington Manor licensed for civil ceremonies and, if so, what areas of the venue are available for weddings and what capacity can they cater for?

Hornington Manor is fully licensed to hold civil ceremonies at a number of remarkable locations around its grounds to suit couples’ individual preference. Hornington Gallery has huge floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the sheep grazing in the fields outside and is wonderfully bright and airy, holding 120 guests.

Our most popular place to hold wedding ceremonies is in the infamous Hornington Wedding Barn. The original 18th Century rustic barn can comfortably house up to 150 guests and is beautifully decorated with huge external doors opening onto the Manor courtyard.

For more intimate ceremonies, the lavish ballroom in the West Wing of the Manor could be perfect. Alternatively, couples may wish to take advantage of the stunning surroundings and hold their ceremony outside. Saying their vows under the charming Lych Gate in the Manor Courtyard, or facing the gentle fields on the Manor Lawn.

And what areas are available for the reception?

The beautiful wedding barn is available for wedding receptions, and can seat 150 guests comfortably. Other than boasting a stunning bar and relaxing snug areas, the wood panelled walls and exposed brick is a blank canvas for brides and grooms to style as they wish.

How would you describe the look and feel of Hornington Manor?

The Manor has a rustic feel to it whilst also being the perfect untouched setting. Brides and grooms can choose to draw on the organic features of the venue, or alternatively use the blank backdrop for a more glamorous theme – anything goes! We’ve seen some amazing ideas; some of which can be seen on the blog section of our website.

What makes Hornington Manor a special wedding venue?

Hornington Manor is so special due to its unique surroundings and its magical element of exclusivity. Not many people can say they’ve married with a flock of sheep as members of the audience! If you’re lucky enough to wed during lambing season, some guests have the extra bonus of feeding pet lambs before the wedding begins! Our team endeavour to do all they can to make each wedding day special, unique and seamless.

Hornington Manor (1)

What sort of bride would be a Hornington Manor bride?

A Hornington Manor bride is excited by the chance to create their very own dream wedding – brides can be as creative as they wish. A Hornington Manor bride also appreciates the time before and after their wedding – being able to spend the whole weekend with their family in the house and grounds of the Manor.

How can your staff help to make the planning process easier and the big day amazing?

Our wedding co-ordinator Jo and her assistant Hayley will be on hand from the moment you have your first viewing, to the moment you leave Hornington Manor as a married couple. Their nothing-is-too-much attitude means our brides and grooms can plan their wedding with peace of mind that everything will run smoothly. On call throughout the big day and in the lead up to a wedding, they will go the extra mile to make sure every couple has the wedding day of their dreams. We also have a number of trusted and recommended suppliers, many of which are regulars at Hornington weddings; and are featured on our website under Recommended Suppliers.

stately style. discover the secrets of saltmarshe hall

March 23rd, 2018 | Julia Braime

PNE1828_BUN_SaltmarsheHall_OnlineFlyer580px

Some of our very favourite recent real weddings and styled shoots like this one here (and you know we get through our fair share of those here at Brides Up North HQ!) all had one thing in common – the venue.  Saltmarshe Hall was a name that kept cropping up again and again in our most stylish celebrations, so we just had to find out more. One thing led to another – as these things often do – and that curiosity was the start of a (VERY) beautiful friendship!

a-pretty-homemade-wedding-at-saltmarshe-hall-c-sarah-beth-photography-42

Now a permanent fixture in our diary, we are delighted to present another Brides Up North Bespoke Luxury Wedding Fair at Saltmarshe Hall on Sunday 15th April 2018, to showcase the venue and a truly handpicked selection of the area’s most fabulous wedding suppliers. As those of us sporting a sparkler on our ring finger know all too well, the best things come in smaller packages. As wedding inspiration goes, this event is one of our best!

This event is pure luxury, an open doors, friendly soiree, to show you exactly why Saltmarshe (and our chosen supplier team) is so very special. If you are on a venue hunt, or are simply looking to finalise the last wedding details with the very best industry creatives available in a relaxed and stunning, no pressure environment, then you must put this date in your diary.

We’ll be showing off our most fabulous find yet – East Yorkshire’s most romantic wedding venue – between 12pm and 3pm on Sunday 15th April, and as with all of our events, entry is FREE.

A restored Georgian Grade II listed Hall with a dash of style and elegance combining both traditional and contemporary charm and set in 17 acres of stunning parkland, Saltmarshe Hall is a truly unique place to say I do. The Saltmarshe ethos is to listen to what you want; and we love that they don’t enforce any off the shelf packages, rather letting their couples’ creative input flourish.

a-pretty-homemade-wedding-at-saltmarshe-hall-c-sarah-beth-photography-4

All the rooms are licensed for ceremonies and there’s also the option to hold your ceremony outdoors.  The team also promise to never hold more than one wedding per day at Saltmarshe Hall, so that the venue is truly your home – and blank canvas – for your personal celebration.

a winter’s love. essense of australia for a chic wedding at the mansion, leeds – jen & leigh

February 1st, 2018 | Alexis Forsyth

A Chic Winter Wedding at The Mansion (c) A Little Picture (79)

Today’s real wedding is all about the fun factor, with newlyweds, Jen and Leigh, making sure this was one of their top priorities when planning their special day. From the ceremony and decorations to the food and music, they also injected a personal touch across every aspect of their nuptials and the celebrations after. And we’re completely smitten with the results.

The gorgeous Grade II listed Mansion in Roundhay Park, Leeds – a Brides Up North Sponsor venue, no less – provided the luxurious backdrop to the couple’s November wedding.

Jen and Leigh looked to the wintry season for inspiration, with gorgeous berry and navy tones and a touch of gold, as well as ‘wild’ floral arrangements and a hearty wedding breakfast. Other little details to look out for include gold prosecco bottles for their centrepieces and corks as place setting holders – simple yet beautiful, and an idea we think we’ll be borrowing!

DIARY DATE: We will be holding a Brides Up North Luxury Wedding Fair at The Mansion on Sunday 25th February 2018, 11am to 2pm, FREE ENTRY. Be sure to join us to see more of this fabulous venue and to meet a handpicked selection of top suppliers from the area.

With images by A Little Picture.

A Chic Winter Wedding at The Mansion (c) A Little Picture (60)

jen says: We got engaged on Christmas Day 2016. We had spent a couple of years renovating our house and Leigh suggested that it might be nice to have Christmas in our own home for the first time ever. We woke up on Christmas morning and opened what I thought were silly stocking presents. At the very bottom of mine was a beautifully wrapped box and when I looked up, Leigh was on one knee asking me to marry him! It was just perfect, very private and romantic with the twinkly lights on the tree. My family came over for Christmas dinner and it was so exciting to be able to celebrate with them on such a special day.

A Chic Winter Wedding at The Mansion (c) A Little Picture (22)

We got married on 11th November 2017. We had been together for 11 years at that point and once we had decided to get married, we didn’t want to hang around! We love this time of year, particularly crisp autumn days with all the beautiful colours on the trees and the gorgeous low light.

We tied the knot at The Mansion in Roundhay Park, and were able to have both our ceremony and reception there. As soon as we arrived, we knew that it would be the place for us. Roundhay Park is beautiful and has a wonderful family feel to it. The Mansion itself is a gorgeous old house, which is decorated in a contemporary style and is incredibly warm and inviting. It has two main rooms, so we were able to have our ceremony and reception in different places and it was big enough that, had the weather been poor, our guests could comfortably spend all day inside. From our first meeting, Dine (who run the venue) were incredibly friendly and professional, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.

A Chic Winter Wedding at The Mansion (c) A Little Picture (31)

We didn’t have a theme as such but wanted the whole day to feel relaxed and cosy. We decorated the building with photos of our friends and family and used candles everywhere to create a romantic mood.

We had a combination of warm berry and navy tones to reflect the time of year and our centrepieces were gold to match the colours of the building’s interior.

A Chic Winter Wedding at The Mansion (c) A Little Picture (83)

I wore a floor-length Essense of Australia dress from Ava Rose Hamilton in Silsden, West Yorkshire. I knew that I wanted something lacy and fitted but this dress went beyond my original expectations, with beautiful beading detail and a long train. The back of the dress was particularly intricate, so I went for a sheer veil in the same length as my train. I loved my dress and wish I could wear it again!

My hair and makeup artist, Anna Stephenson was amazing. She was able to replicate the images that I had shown to her as well as make suggestions.
