Autumn at Goldsborough Hall

On a beautiful autumn afternoon in September, we held our Wedding Open Afternoon – a chance to showcase this elegant 17th-century stately home to prospective brides and grooms.

Lots of couples with their families visited us, being greeted with fizz and canapes on arrival. The 18th-century Princess Mary Drawing Room was set out for a wedding, with crips white-clothed tables set with fabulous floral centrepieces. The 17th-century oak panelled Library displayed the dance floor while the elegant 18th-century Dining Room was set out for a civil ceremony. A few suppliers were invited to create a real wedding feel – with music, flowers, cakes, wedding cars and the ever-popular LOVE letters. Enjoy a taste of the afternoon!

Blossom Tree Cake Company
Wedding cakes were supplied by Kean and Stephen from Blossom Tree Cake Company in Harrogate. Kean Ong is originally from Penang in Malaysia and he relocated to the UK in 2001 working his patisserie magic in top London hotels and restaurants. Kean and his partner Stephen have now set up making cakes in Harrogate. Samples seemed to disappear fast!

Typical Type
The LOVE letters, either indoor or outdoor, were supplied by Typical Type. Based in Lancaster, Typical Type supplies large letters for weddings, parties and celebrations throughout the north west. These are incredibly popular at the moment and add a bit of fun and Hollywood style glamour to any wedding!

The Flower Shed
Kirsty is one of a number of florists who work regularly at Goldsborough Hall. This was her first wedding open afternoon and she produced some gorgeous flowers in differing styles. Kirsty is also our in-house florist, providing flowers for our 12 bedrooms and for the dining tables.

The Event Music Company
We have been working with Chris Hilton and Event Music for many years at Goldsborough Hall. Based in Leeds, Event Music provides everything from string quartets to swing bands, stage production and venue lighting. Chris and his team always make our Wedding Open Afternoons lively with fabulous music!

Yorkshire Wedding Cars
In pride of place outside the hall, were three of Yorkshire Wedding Cars fleet including its most recent acquisition the 1960 Silver Cloud Rolls-Royce. Alongside was the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Bentley Arnage RL. YWC are ideally situated between Harrogate and York to supply wedding cars throughout the Yorkshire region.
