Meanwhile, we catch up with the Denton Hall ream to hear more about this stunning venue’s wonderful wedding offering…
Can you tell us a little about the history of Denton Hall and describe the look and feel of the venue?
denton hall say: The Hall was designed by famous architect John Carr and built in 1778. Today the beautiful building provides a venue that is brimming with timeless elegance and situated in a luxurious rural setting. Being nestled in 2,500 acres with stunning views across to the Ilkley moor, we really are spoilt with some of the best views in Yorkshire. The building has been beautifully restored to mirror its original style and retain its unique character. From the stunning spiral stair case to crystal chandeliers, there are so many areas just perfect for photographs and for friends and family to relax in.
Tell us about the ceremony and reception areas at Denton Hall…
With three stunning rooms within the hall licensed for civil ceremonies and the local church just a stone’s throw away in the village of Denton, getting married here could not be easier. Typically, we use the front terrace of the Hall, which has sweeping views across to the Ilkley moor for your drinks reception – as well as our newly refurbished reception area and bar, before moving through into the elegant dining room. After dinner, its back to the bar and reception area to dance the night away until the small hours with our late licence. We can host up to 100 guests for the day reception and then 160 for the evening.
What makes Denton Hall a special wedding venue and sets it apart from others?
We like to think that what we offer here at Denton is truly a magical experience, we like to get to know our couples and with the exclusive use for the whole weekend, you really do become part of the Denton family. You are our only guests and we get to look after you and your loved ones from the moment you all arrive on Friday until you all depart on Sunday.
Each and every wedding is as individual and different as the couple; so with this in mind we don’t have set packages which couples adhere to. Instead each and every couple sit down with us and we create a bespoke day tailored exactly as they want it – from the reception drinks all the way through the day to evening food.
What sort of bride would be a Denton Hall bride?
Any bride can be a Denton bride, whatever their vision. With the bespoke tailored packages we can caterer for all wants and desires.

We are always on hand to answer questions and queries – whether that’s on the phone, over email, face to face, or even text.
On the big day one of the team is here from the moment the first guest arrives on Friday afternoon until check out on Sunday. Ourselves and the catering managers from Box Tree Events always ensure that the bridal party are aware of who we are and that they can come to us with anything they need, plus we are on hand for you both all day too.
Can you tell us about the accommodation at the venue?
Our couples can make a full weekend out of the exclusive use of the hall, we have 24 guest bedrooms plus our luxury bridal suite and lodge suites. We don’t book our rooms out to anyone other than the wedding party and get the bride and groom to allocate the bedrooms – that way you can make sure that those who definitely need a room have one.

One thing we are immensely proud of here at Denton is our catering. We have worked exclusively with the amazing and fabulous team at Box Tree Events for the past seven years, who will delight and excite couples with their wonderful wedding menus and choices.

We often get feedback which thanks us for being part of the whole journey, from the first show around until check out on the Sunday morning. Working with Box Tree Events also ensures the food is just sensational. There are always comments from our couples and their friends and family on just how delicious the entire wedding breakfast was.
