Exuding Georgian elegance, this Grade II listed house, with its award-winning restaurant and rooms, is the perfect venue for your wedding, and you can welcome your friends and family to ‘your own’ stylish house for the day, as Grassington House can be entirely taken over for an intimate and individual wedding.

Congratulations on your forthcoming wedding, we have many years’ experience in coordinating and creating distinct and memorable occasions, and we are ready to take the stress and strain out of this key moment in your journey so far.

We hope to guide you through the preparation for your day, suggesting menus, canapés, wine list, accommodation packages and advice on civil ceremonies.

It’s up to you whether your guest list is 20 or 60 of your nearest and dearest, we can tailor an experience which blends style, romantic charm and individuality with a memorable meal and stay.

Grassington House is licenced to hold civil marriage and partnership ceremonies, which are performed by the Registrars from nearby Skipton.
