Venue Focus: Riverside Events

Happy Good Friday! It's a four day weekend, yey! For the couples who aren't getting married or going to a wedding this weekend, make the most of the bank holiday and get your head stuck into some serious wedmin. Go on, dig out that list and get ticking! Today's blog post is totally venue focused. We caught up with Allanah at Riverside Events to find out all about them and their exclusive wedding venues in North Yorkshire. 

Riverside Events offer private homes for all wedding sizes, styles and budgets. Couples hire the venue exclusive to them for 2 days, which means no stresses when setting up and getting ready. It's a totally relaxed way to have your wedding day. 

The choice of venues by Riverside Events is diverse and flexible, a tipi or marquee can be sited within the grounds to add a different, unique vibe to your wedding day. As well as offering low corkage, ample parking for guests and all the other practicalities for your wedding day, the venues are affordable and charmingly refreshing compared to other more traditional venues.

About us

With a combined background in hospitality and project management, and a passion for people (and fun!), Neil and Allanah identified a gap in the market for intimate and completely flexible private event locations in Yorkshire, that don’t cost the earth. Somewhere you can simply have a truly special riverside civil ceremony with drinks and canapés perhaps, or curate your perfect full wedding reception, in a place you can call home for the days surrounding their event. 
Hence Riverside Events Yorkshire was born! 
From private dinners for 20 to intimate weddings up to 300 people, Neil and Allanah offer exclusive use of their private home wedding venues in stunning locations in North Yorkshire, from English country garden to funky tipi marquee sites, to grand stately homes, all at exceptionally competitive rates. 
Providing full wedding planning assistance and management of your wedding week-end and extensive lists of suppliers and knowledge this is the complete wedding service, but with flexibility, variety, and a very personal experience.

How amazing do the photos look? So let's find out about the stunning locations and properties that are part of Riverside Events.

Tanfield House, West Tanfield

Home to Neil and Allanah Bourne-Arton, this period home in a beautiful English country garden, on the banks of the River Ure, is a wonderfully intimate private venue. Licensed for civil ceremonies in the Riverside Pavillion and within the house, Tanfield House has proved extremely popular over the last three years, with couples embracing the flexibility and privacy in an 'at home' environment. A bespoke personal service is provided throughout the planning and running of each wedding, with exclusive use of the house for 2 full days. Neil and Allanah are enormously encouraged by incredible feedback and continual referrals.


Danby Hall, Wensleydale

Home to a pre-conquest Norman family for over 500 years, Danby Hall is steeped in history. The historic house is situated in one of the most picturesque parts of Wensleydale, on an expansive, scenic private estate. This venue is ideal for couples who visualise their wedding in a stately home environment while desiring a more flexible and exclusive experience, often denied by similar venues. In addition to complete privacy, some of the features of Danby Hall include impressive reception rooms for drinks receptions, dining up to 80, expansive marquee lawns and terraces, a consecrated Roman Catholic chapel within the house, a celebrant for bespoke ceremonies, a capacity of 80 within the house and 100+ in a marquee, and of course breathtaking views over Wensleydale. https://www.riversideeventsyorkshire.co.uk/hire-rates-danby-hall/
