Couples wishing to get married in the great outdoors can now exchange their vows at a brand new venue in scenic Upper Wharfedale.
Kilnsey Park Estate recently became the first place in Craven where civil ceremonies can take place in a haymeadow.
The family-run Estate and visitor attraction, once owned by the monks of Fountains Abbey, recently hosted its first outdoor ceremony and wedding. Mat and Lucy Evans from Leeds were the first lucky couple to tie the knot.
‘We were so lucky to be blessed with warm blue skies for our first ever outdoor ceremony,’ says Kilnsey Park owner Jamie Roberts. ‘Many guests commented that it was an unforgettable wedding made truly special by the beautiful location.’
Afterwards the wedding guests partied in a giant Teepee on the banks of the River Wharfe.
‘We’ve already had many enquiries from couples who love the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales and to celebrate their wedding in it,’ says Jamie Roberts. ‘And where else can you have alpacas as wedding guests?’
