Totally recommend Danby Castle for your Wedding

We recently got married at Danby Castle, what a perfect venue. Everything was brilliant, the planning was easy, and the day went so well. All the staff were brilliant and the service was great. The food throughout the day was excellent, and commented on by our guests. The team at Danby made the day go perfectly from setting up to clearing away at the end of the night. Everything was on time and as requested. The location is amazing and the venue is very well looked after. Would recommend Danby Castle as the perfect place to get married.

Best day ever

We only needed to look around the one venue because as soon as we walked into Danby Castle we knew it was the place for us. Everything about it is completely stunning.
The views are uninterrupted and awe-inspiring, the castle ruins are so cool and the kids/big kids loved exploring them. The ceremony room is cosy and intimate whilst still fitting plenty of people in, and the barn for the reception is completely gorgeous. We loved that the dancefloor and bar are in a little add on barn, so you don鈥檛 need to do the whole switching around of tables and rooms as required at many venues, leaving plenty of space for people to sit away from the dancing if they need a break.. There鈥檚 a brand new, gorgeous getting ready room which was perfect for the bridal party to have their makeup done in the morning. There are quirky little areas/separate barn spaces to use so you move from one area to another throughout the day. Having exclusive hire of the whole place, set in the middle of nowhere, with everyone you love in one place is beyond amazing.
The staff were all wonderful in the run up and on the day and loads of guests commented on how fab they were. A MASSIVE thank you to Rachael our coordinator who was so SO helpful at every stage, always contactable and responded quickly to any questions, always totally lovely. We were given free reign to set up ourselves the day before, but you could add as much or as little the venue as you want and it would still be breath-taking without a single decoration added.
The food was incredibly tasty, canopes of Yorkshire puddings and sausage suited us to a tee, and the pie and mash main was complemented by everyone there (I am running out of superlatives here!).
I cannot believe how lucky we were to get married at Danby Castle. If you are reading reviews to decide whether to book here, stop looking and do it. Best decision ever. Can鈥檛 thank you all enough.

Our Wedding was truly perfect...

Carolyn and Phil Thank you so much for such an amazing day! Our wedding was truly perfect - even when it rained! (In fact, the rain added to the fun!) Nothing was too much trouble - you made sure everything ran smoothly and all of our guests commented on the calm, relaxed and welcoming atmosphere and of course that beautiful view! The food was excellent. Those pies have got to be the best we've ever tasted and the mini desserts were delicious! From when we first visited, to the wedding day itself, you have both been so friendly and we are truly grateful for all of your help. We just knew straight away that we wanted to celebrate our wedding at Danby Castle, and it really was the best day ever. Lots of love, Jennie and Jamie

Max has an unerring eye for detail

Danby Castle is the perfect setting for a wedding amidst romantic ruins & stunning scenes of the North Yorks Moors. Of course a lot of planning goes into a wedding & the magic started when Sarah & Darran met the amazing Carolyn & family who own the castle. They are wonderful hosts & make every wedding unique & completely tailored to the couple's taste. The options Sarah & Darran were offered were immense & it was a hard choice. Everything from formal wedding breakfasts to ice-cream & fish & chip vans in the courtyard. Sarah & Darran opted for a Mad Hatter's tea party. The table settings were quirky with, of course, mis-matched crockery, perfect for an Alice in Wonderland fan. Max's unerring eye for detail provided the perfect decoration.The food was fantastic & so much of it; finger sandwiches, savouries, scones, exquisite desserts & huge drink me teapots full of tea. The evening supper was equally wonderful & I don't know how I didn't burst out of my dress. All the staff led by Carolyn, Phil & Max, provided a wonderful service, unobtrusive, friendly & always there to see that everyone was well looked after & never short of anything. Even at the end of the evening when our taxi was nearly an hour late, Carolyn & Phil continued to welcome us into their home & were even going to take us home themselves. This truly was a happy, magical & wonderful day which we will never forget. I cannot recommend Danby Castle & Carolyn and family enough for this. I think I will have to get married again so I can relive this day again. Carole Benson.
