Venues – Gillrudding Grange and New Craven Hall

Yorkshire couples are certainly spoilt for choice when it comes to wedding venues and I love it when new venues comes to light!! I had the pleasure of viewing not one but two new venues in Yorkshire over the past week. The first was the beautiful grounds of Gillrudding Grange in Naburn, followed by a trip to Leeds to view the chic urban luxe event space at New Craven Hall.

Gillrudding Grange


Gillrudding Grange provides couples with a vast rural green space to host a marquee, tipi or yurt wedding and starts at £1000 for land hire. The grounds around the beautiful Georgian farm house at Gillrudding Grange are perfect couples who just want the land to do it all themselves. The house provides a stunning backdrop, perfect to capture those precious photographic moments.

The venue is run by Chloe and Sarah Atkinson. Chloe who lives and works at the farm house has her own holistic therapy studio Grange Therapies and her cousin Sarah who grew up next door to the Grange.

Gillrudding Grange officially launched its new event space by hosting a spectacular bridal experience with a fantastic range of suppliers showcasing their talents and giving couples a sneak peek as to what a wedding would look like at the venue. There are two local churches close by in Naburn and Escrick for those who want a religious ceremony and the farm is also in between York and Selby registry offices.

The Royal York Hotel in York, holds an exclusive discount for guests who attend the reception at Gillrudding Grange. For those who want to camp under the stars then there is plenty of space for camping/glamping on the grounds.

New Craven Hall is the new trendy urban luxe space to host your special event. I was warmly welcomed by owners Ben Corkhill and Jane Chapman who both have a background in weddings and know how to put a party togethe1r.

The venue officially opened its doors in June this year after Ben and Jane renovated the venue to create this unique space with exposed brickwork and beams – perfect for a couple who are looking for something different.

The space has contemporary lighting with a fairy light backdrop and a bar with a late night licence until 3 am which gives couples more flexibility for those who want to party all night long. It provides guests with a blank canvas so they they can transform the space as they wish, with prices for room and bar hire starting at £2000.

The location of New Craven Hall is south of Leeds city centre and is easy to get to for train/aiport links. Clayton Hotel also offers an exclusive discount to guests who attend a reception at New Craven.
