Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal

Ripon, North Yorkshire

One of Yorkshire’s most historical and breathtaking sites, Fountains Abbey & Studley Royal is steeped in nearly 900 years of history.

The historic abbey ruins, impressive Jacobean mansion house and fine Georgian water garden will provide a magical setting for your wedding day.

The friendly experienced team will work closely with you in the run up to your big day to ensure that your celebrations run smoothly and exceed your expectations.

The Jacobean mansion house Fountains Hall has two rooms licensed for civil ceremonies. There is the Oak Room, once used for a guest bedroom for Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, which is available for smaller more intimate weddings for up to 20 guests.

The impressive Great Chamber, with its ornate ceiling and grand fireplace is a charming venue for larger weddings with up to 80 guests. Following this, the perfect way to start your celebrations is to hold a drinks reception in private walled gardens, allowing your guests to relax and enjoy a drink while you go and make the most of the stunning surroundings for your wedding photographs.

For those wishing to hold their reception in a truly unique location there is a marquee site nestled in the footsteps of the romantic and breathtaking abbey ruins, which is the perfect choice for larger summer weddings.

By holding your wedding here you are helping us to look after this special place for the future, as all revenue received from weddings and functions goes directly back into the estate.
