Your Yorkshire Wedding - May/June 2023 (Issue 60)

LINEHAM FARM 0113 378 3939 | Just a few miles from Leeds, Lineham Farm is a mix of rural charm and cosy farmhouse. Its wedding barn has wooden beams adorned with fairy lights and large windows set in traditional stone, while the adjoining lounge area centres around a fireplace with working log burning stove. The central point of any wedding here must be its courtyard, an open space creating an inviting atmosphere to host drinks, food, music and more. Wandering through the courtyard brings you to The Green, a woodland space for up to 130. Here you’ll also find seating with fire pits, ideal for toasting marshmallows as the sun sets. Alternatively, wed in the barn (capacity 100), the courtyard (capacity 100), or the hillside (capacity 130), before hosting either a formal sit-down occasion in the barn, or festival-style affair in the courtyard. Just imagine food trucks pitching up at the entrance, serving culinary delights while guests relax at tables underneath festoon lighting. SALTMARSHE HALL 01430 434920 | A Grade II Georgian estate house, Saltmarshe is fronted by the River Ouse and is set in 17 acres of Yorkshire countryside. The parkland offers opportunities to explore riverside walks and ancient trees, while the walled garden features herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns and treelined walkways. Marrying here is nothing short of spectacular, with several ceremony spaces to choose. The Morning Room (capacity 110) is the largest indoor room, with large skylights and ample windows for tons of natural light. The Drawing Room (65 guests) is perfect for an intimate ceremony; the Walled Garden (110 guests) ideal for an English country garden affair; while the Lime Tree Avenue (110 guests) sees you making an entrance down the old staircase into a row of trees with festoon lighting. You can even wed by the beautiful backdrop of the Pond (110 guests)! 22
