Good morning everybody! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. This morning I have the absolute pleasure of welcoming Yorkshire’s new favourite wedding venue to the English Wedding Blog. Ox Pasture Hall has appeared on more wedding blogs in the last 12 months than I can count! It’s a beautifully restored and developed luxury country house nestled in the Forge Valley and is available for exclusive use hire, for outdoor weddings and for large or intimate celebrations.


Ox Pasture is the only hotel in Scarborough to have been awarded 2-rosettes for culinary excellence, and with their head chef’s reputation for cooking fabulous food you won’t be disappointed. (The wedding brochure which you can download from the official website includes a fantastic choice for every course – do have a read.)

For those seeking true exclusivity, Ox Pasture Hall is available for exclusive use and with 32 bedrooms offering sumptuous accommodation for you & your guests, you may not want to leave! Licensed for civil ceremonies, both inside and out, this stunning venue can be tailored exactly as you wish, no matter how elaborate or different you want your big day to be.


When it comes to planning your wedding day, choosing your venue is perhaps the most important decision you have to make. It’s almost up there with choosing the bride’s dress! There are so many facets that make a venue right for your big day and it can be difficult to find one that satisfies every requirement.

There is so much to think about, so I am sharing this interview with you today to set you thinking about your wedding venue: what to look for, questions to ask and how to choose the right venue for you as a couple. With thanks to Yorkshire wedding venue Wentbridge House for the interview!

Wentbridge House is quite unique in that it has a church next door – do you work alongside the church?

Although religious wedding ceremonies are less common than in years gone by, a large percentage of couples still wish to get married in a church.
Of course, this adds another factor to consider, as you search for a suitable venue that has a perfect church in close proximity.
