5 Reasons to Get Married in Yorkshire

Yorkshire, as some of us like to call it, ‘God’s country’ is as we all know an amazing place and the very beating heart of England. Towns and Cities such as Leeds, Doncaster and Sheffield are true gems in the United Kingdom’s largest county. If you’re thinking about getting married but unsure where, keep on reading to find out why getting married in Yorkshire should be your first choice…

1. The Landscape

Across the globe, Yorkshire is renowned for boasting some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes; whether it’s stunning views seen across Yorkshire’s three peaks, city skylines or beautiful national parks – you name it, Yorkshire has it. Perhaps Yorkshire’s best loved landscape is the Yorkshire Dales, which cover an area of nearly 1,800 square kilometres of the best scenery the United Kingdom has to offer.

2. The Architecture

It won’t take you long to appreciate the deep history Yorkshire has to offer – the landscape is filled with beautiful castles and churches, among other stunning historical architecture dating back to the Romans and Industrial Revolution, the perfect place to hold a wedding. Yorkshire is more than willing to share its history with the millions of visitors who flock to God’s own country each year with world-class museums and historical sites such as the Jorvick Viking Centre, Fountains Abbey and Doncaster Minster.


3. The Culture

Yorkshire and Doncaster isn’t all about flat caps and Yorkshire puddings. This incredibly diverse county has established itself as one of the UK’s cultural hotspots. Yorkshire has produced some of the world’s finest literary talents and artists, all of whom are celebrated within the many galleries and visitor sites that reside in this county, including Leeds Art Gallery and Yorkshire Sculpture park. The cultural contribution Yorkshire has made to the UK was made official earlier this year when the City of Hull was named the UK City Of Culture 2017. Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery is also a firm favourite

4. The Beer

Of course, it wouldn’t be a wedding without beer and Yorkshire has plenty of it – It’s not just our food that has people raving, our beer is pretty impressive too. Yorkshire is home to both historic and state-of-the-art modern breweries that cater to some of Britain’s best pubs and bars. Many of our breweries, including the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham, offer visitors the chance to take a tour and see how these classic brews are created.
