A True Hidden Gem

Aldby Park is a stunning marquee wedding site based in the rolling North Yorkshire countryside.

Benefitting from scintillating views, glorious grounds and gardens and neatly tucked away in a secluded village, Aldby Park is a hidden gem just waiting to be discovered.

The Georgian listed family home, built in 1726, provides the perfect back drop for any marquee wedding with the choice of two beautifully manicured lawns certain to leave your guests in awe. You will also have full access to the delightful gardens, surrounded by an intriguing dry moat, whose elevated position provide stunning views over the River Derwent and beyond.

As a ‘site only’ marquee wedding venue Aldby Park provides a pristine canvas to paint your perfect wedding, allowing utilisation of your own suppliers or choosing from an extensive list of recommended local companies. Access to the venue will be allowed for five days dedicating time to put those personal touches to your wedding venue while your dream marquee is erected.

Aldby Park is just a short stroll from St Johns Church where a licensed ceremony can be held. Alternatively our ‘lion cage’ area is a tranquil location for an outdoor blessing with a personal touch. The adjoining, enclosed reception lawn is the ideal spot for welcome drinks before your guests make their way through to the main lawn where garden games can be played before sitting for your wedding breakfast and evening party.

Amplified music is permitted until 1am with the bar also licensed until this time.

The small and secluded village of Buttercrambe, located in the Ryedale district of North Yorkshire, is only a short distance from Stamford Bridge and the larger hubs of York, Malton and Pocklington.

Hosting only eight weddings per year, viewings are highly recommended at this much sought after site.

Can we choose our own suppliers?

Most certainly! With Louisianna’s Weddings, we love to offer the flexibility couples want when planning their dream wedding. We can definitely recommend our most trusted suppliers but the choice is ultimately yours. With all bookings, a free pay – as – you – go bar set up is included by Louisianna’s Mobile Bars and these are the only bar company allowed at this venue.

How do we book Aldby Park?

With only hosting eight weddings here per year, it is definitely worth booking early to avoid disappointment. Booking is simple. Once we confirm your ideal date is available, we will send you a booking form. Once this is completed and the deposit is paid, your booking will be confirmed and the countdown will begin.

Do we have access to the stately home?

Unfortunately, there is no access to the stately home. This is still a family home but is still the perfect backdrop for those wedding photos.

Do we need to apply for a Temporary Events Licence?

No, this will all be taken care of by us.

Aldby Park, Lee, Jenna & the Team. George, Sarah & Allan made our magical dream wedding come true! Thank you does not come close to expressing the gratitude we feel toward this amazing team.

Charlotte and Matt Ullah

We just want to say a massive thank you to Lee & the team at Aldby Park. Aldby Park is the perfect venue for a wedding – it is just beautiful. From the moment we turned up at the venue for the first look, we were in love. Lee is amazing – anything we asked, he had the answer; anything we needed, he could source. On the day of the wedding, he was on hand to sort anything out, from making sure the cards were in the box, to grabbing us a drink during photos, to being our master of ceremonies. We can not recommend the venue & Louisianna’s wedding team enough. Thank you so so much for making our wedding day just perfect!

Will and Catherine Lawton

We were lucky enough to find Aldby Park as our wedding venue – absolutely perfect if you want to plan your own wedding in your own style. Beautifully kept gardens with all kinds of exciting features, easy access for everything you need & very kind & helpful owners. Great communication & support from Louisianna staff & a promise of sunny weather was well kept. A fairly exclusive venue (only 8 weddings a year I believe) so get in while you can!

We cannot believe it has been one year since we got married at the stunning venue of Aldby Park. We had a real vision that our wedding would be exactly as we wanted with unique elements and quirks which were unique to us. We felt a venue which allowed us to do this without a package, menu or restrictions was the best fit for us.Lee was a pleasure to work with as were all the staff at Louisianna’s & we felt our day was treated with such sentiment & thought. We had looked at other venues and we felt like just another wedding amongst a busy calendar. Lee always had time & the creative touch combined with on the problem solving & attention to detail.We often say Aldby Park is a hidden gem where each wedding is a blank canvas for you to create. We would recommend Aldby Park & Louisianna’s without reservation.Thank you to Lee and the team for helping to organise and deliver the best day of our lives.
