Danby Castle wedding venue is set in the beautiful Whitby and was the perfect choice for this gorgeous celebration.
The main focus for the wedding day was for it to be relaxed, to flow naturally and for friends and family to have an incredible time. The couple chose Danby Castle’s because of the rustic barn, the Castle ruins, the Yorkshire Moors views and that it had stacks of character. The guys made a few perspex wedding signs that were dotted around the venue on the day and stuck to keeping them fairly informal, using nicknames for the seating plan and humorous quotes for the order of the day. They both really like rustic, industrial and bohemian styles so we aimed to go somewhere between all three for our wedding decor and went with a green, white, grey and black colour scheme.
The foliage was definitely the theme of the day, saying their I Do’s in front of a foliage wreath and the wooden wedding breakfast tables littered in eucalyptus leaves. Wanting to move away from traditions, the wedding speeches were held outdoors in the castle ruins followed by pie and mash served inside on wooden benches that the couple had designed themselves! They even did a ‘First Dance’ sweepstake and gave the guests 100 song options for them to guess their first dance number and the lucky winners took home £100!
The bride looked beautiful in an Emma Beaumont wedding dress with lace detail and a pretty hairpiece, flanked by her four bridesmaids who wore grey multiway dresses all clutching foliage bouquets. The groom was wearing a black suit with a tie, and the groomsmen were wearing graphite grey ones.
