Weddings at Middleton Lodge

 Nestling in the midst of rolling Yorkshire countryside, Middleton Lodge and its 250 acre Georgian estate offers the perfect setting for a traditional country wedding party – with a slightly modern twist. We hold Civil ceremonies for up to 120 guests, using three different locations, including Yorkshire's only licensed outdoor space. For more intimate receptions we use the house function rooms seating up to 45 dinner guests. For larger numbers between 65 and 180, we use our own permanent marquee set within the grounds. At Middleton Lodge we have our own wedding license, vast grounds, beautiful interiors, numerous reception rooms for eating and drinking, and 17 individually designed bedrooms.

 We hope you make yourself at home and treat our home as your own country mansion for the duration of your stay. We specialise in exclusive weekend and intimate mid-week weddings and our packages are designed to be a flexible guide rather than set in stone. We can tailor most things to your requirements and recommend that couples hire Middleton Lodge over 2 nights, that way you really do get to experience the Lodge at its best and make it your own.

Summer Weddings

From early spring onwards our grounds really come into their own. BBQ’s on the terrace on a Friday night, drinks receptions on the lawns and making the most of the outside space is a must. Our private parkland with striking vistas creates the perfect backdrop for photos, whilst your guests can enjoy the English countryside to its full. Smaller weddings can then take over the house and larger functions head to the marquee, which you can decorate however you would like.

 Winter Weddings

With roaring fires in the house, Christmas decorations, mulled wine & winter Pimms, the Lodge can be a truly magical place in the winter months. Our fully heated marquee creates a stunning venue for any Christmas wedding with its star cloth backdrop, candles and Christmas trees. We even have an awning connecting the marquee to the Drawing Room, so none of your guests have to venture outside.

 Food & Menus

Wherever possible we use local & seasonal produce for our menus. We also have big plans for the Estate and in the near future we hope to be able to open our own farm deli, selling produce from our kitchen gardens & farming business. As with everything else at the Lodge we like to be as flexible as possible so if you have something particular you want, let us know and we’ll see if we can add it to your menu.
