A tremendously successful first season of weddings last year has validated Allanah and Neil's belief that there is considerable demand for affordable, flexible and most importantly, personal, wedding venues in North Yorkshire. Places where couples can take control of their overall spend and curate their day their way!
During my first visit to Tanfield House, a charming period house in a picturesque setting on the banks of the River Ure, I was struck by its romantic and elegant charm. The house is surrounded by a tranquil English country garden on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, but only a ten minute drive to the A1, so easily accessible for guests.
While elegant and sophisticated, Tanfield House delivers a truly personal 'at home' experience, where couples enjoy up to 2 days exclusive hire, so they can settle in and make the most of such special occasions. Offering a luxurious river view bridal suite within the house and accommodation for 4 in an adjoining apartment with breakfasts included in the period dining room for all staying on site, Tanfield House is somewhere you can share with your nearest and dearest at such an important time. There is extensive additional accommodation within the village and surrounding areas.
Licensed for Civil Ceremonies both in the Riverside Pavilion and in the period drawing room, Allanah and Neil have described some magically romantic moments taking place in their home over the last year. They speak with such enthusiasm and delight about each of their weddings it is easy to see why they have chosen to open their home for weddings, and why Tanfield House is fast becoming an incredibly popular venue.
Allanah and Neil are on hand to support and discreetly guide you through every step of the wedding planning process, and manage the running of your wedding over the two days you are there. They provide you with an extensive list of carefully selected suppliers from which to choose, catering for all taste, styles and budgets.
"As Tanfield House is primarily home to our family, we only offer 10 weekends a year for weddings, and never more than one wedding at a time. As such, we can confidently deliver a truly personal bespoke experience for each of our couples, ensuring each wedding at Tanfield House is utterly unique and special," enthused Allanah. "As we are such a new venue we still have a few dates available for 2017 and 2018 and are very flexible with viewing arrangements."
