For 700 years Ripley Castle has been the quintessential essence of Yorkshire romance.

From the moment you enter the village, Ripley stands apart: it is beautiful, historic, and picture postcard perfect.

When it comes to organising weddings, few venues can match our years of experience, professionalism, and ability to turn visions into reality. Ripley offers a range of great inclusive packages, with no hidden costs so you know exactly where you are when budgeting for your big day.

All our catering is done ‘in-house’ and the Castle has established a great reputation for excellence and reliability when it comes to serving fine cuisine and good wines.

A number of the Castle’s main reception rooms are licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and are perfect for 50 wedding guests. The 16th century oak-panelled Library lends a fabulous air of history and dignity to the proceedings, some couples prefer to use one of the lighter Georgian rooms. The Long Gallery in our East Wing seats up to 120 people for a wedding breakast.

Dedicated wedding co-ordinators work with you all the way through the planning process and here at Ripley Castle there is always someone at your shoulder; to answer questions, offer advice and support right up until the big day.

    Always on hand and attentive to our every need

    As Henry and I are finally taking a much-needed break on our honeymoon, we wanted to take the time to extend a massive thank you for the perfect wedding day that you helped give us. Although we'd never been to a wedding before, you helped create exactly what we wanted and held our hand throughout the entire process. We can't thank you enough for making this the first day of our joint family history. It certainly sets the bar high for the rest of our lives together!

    The Ripley Castle team on the day were also faultless, and we would be grateful if you could extend our appreciation to them. They were always on hand when we needed them, and attentive to our every need. Looking back, we couldn't imagine having our wedding with any other venue.

    The best Wedding Breakfast they ever had

    We had a wonderful time on Saturday- Ripley Castle is a beautiful venue and everyone who worked on Saturday did a fantastic job in that heat! From Mike who calmly rescued me from outside when I came across my guests on my walk to the ceremony, to Dave and his team who were simply brilliant and attentive throughout, to the chefs who made what many of our guests described as "the best wedding breakfast they ever had"- please pass our sincerest thanks onto everyone. Also, a thank you to Olivia; you've been so brilliant throughout the whole process and we won't be able to recommend you highly enough to our engaged friends.

    A huge thank you to all at Ripley Castle

    A huge thank you for dealing with all the arrangements for our wedding which went extremely well and was thoroughly enjoyed by Sandra and I and family guests - the day obviously further enhanced by the fantastic weather showing off Ripley Castle at its very best.

    Please will you also pass on our thanks again to Julie who managed all the wedding arrangements assisted by Mike. Julie was excellent - extremely helpful and caring throughout the whole day - nothing was too much trouble.

    We had the most perfect day

    We had the most perfect day and excellent party in the evening. Everything ran so smoothly and we would like to personally pass on our thanks to the chef for such incredible food (so many compliments from our guests) and to Dave. Dave could not do enough for us all day from giving little personal touches to the decorations (flowers,cake etc) to making sure we wanted for nothing (providing myself and Ryan with drinks all day) he was so lovely and everybody commented on the amazing service he provided.

    The venue was stunning and we couldn’t have asked for more.

    We cant recommend Ripley Castle enough

    Ripley Castle was the only venue we visited before deciding to get married there. We were blown away by the service and how beautiful the castle and grounds are.

    We couldn’t recommend Ripley Castle enough, the staff will bend over backwards and ensure you get your perfect day.

    We had such a fantastic day!

    Phil and I just wanted to say a MASSIVE thanks to you and all the team at Ripley Castle for organising and running the wedding of our dreams. We had such a fantastic day and all of our guests have said that it was one of the best weddings they had been to!

    Please can you pass our thanks on Dave as he did and an INCREDIBLE job with the set up and on the day. The day ran perfectly and nothing went wrong and timings were as we planned. The service throughout the day was faultless and I just wanted to thank Dave immensely for this.

    The food was such a hit with out guests. Everyone complimented the food, especially on how well the beef had been cooked and how delicious it tasted!! Please can you pass our thanks on to Oliver as it wouldn’t have been without him!! The presentation of the food looked fab too so thank you for arranging this to be changed at fairly short notice.

    Overall the day was one of the best days of our lives and it wouldn’t have been without everyone involved in the run up and on the day-please pass on our thanks again to everyone involved!!

    It was the best day of our lives

    Ripley was always ‘the one’ for me. I would highly recommend Ripley Castle; there is a real family-feel with the wedding planning team, who were amazing. I must point out how good the food was – people are still talking about the food at our wedding, nine months on!
