Crathorne Hall Wedding Photography


A wedding is a family-oriented event. Having been owned by the same family for over 100 years, the Crathorne Hall estate is the perfect place for you to celebrate your marriage. The venue sits on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors. The countryside offers a stunning scenic view while the interior of the hotel shines with the glow of the beautiful chandeliers.

When Crathorne Hall was designed, the goal was for it to become a place for celebrating.


When it eventually transitioned into a hotel, the tradition of festive celebration continued. Crathorne Hall Hotel is now a luxury wedding venue with a long list of amenities that every bride and groom wants. Romance is in the air, and your wedding day will be full of smiles and joyful celebrations.


The History of Crathorne Hall Hotel


Crathorne Hall was completed in 1906 and was the home of the Dugdale family until 1977. Queen Elizabeth II's Silver Jubilee took place at the Hall on June 7th, 1977. The Jubilee was the last party thrown at the hall before it transitioned into the hotel you see today. The country home still contains many period pieces of furniture and very ornate trimmings throughout the interior.


During World War II, the Dugdale's opened their home to troops from both the British and Belgian armies. Mrs Dugdale led the Red Cross efforts that were also based in the home. Most of the metalwork in and around the property was removed during this time to support the war effort. Since then, much of the decorative trim and metal pieces were replaced, restoring the home's original look.
