With 30 years’ experience in staging weddings at Carlton Towers, our expert, unflappable team will be there to guide you through. We take all the stress out of the preparations and ensure everything runs smoothly so you are free to fully enjoy a day of joy and laughter. There’s no such thing as a wedding package at Carlton Towers. Each Carlton wedding is as unique as you are.
Our expert chefs can create a menu around your ideas. Or, if you prefer, you can bring in your own catering team who will find all they need in our modern kitchens.
You could even choose to have your wedding ceremony in one of our grand old staterooms.
With its grand scale and opulent décor, the Venetian Drawing Room is a wonderfully romantic place to get married. The Picture Gallery, adorned with original artworks, is a particularly artistic location, while the smaller Card Room is ideal for those wanting a more intimate ceremony.
The civil wedding ceremony itself is usually officiated by a registrar from Selby registration office.
From a simply delicious finger buffet to a grand multi-course banquet, the choice of wedding day menu is yours.
Our expert chefs will work with you to tailor the menu to your exact requirements. Nothing is too much trouble for a team who pride themselves on culinary perfection. Whatever you chose, we will serve up an exquisite selection of dishes that will linger long in the memory. And if you are looking for something you can’t find anywhere else, consider our wedding barbecue – created using produce grown and reared in the Carlton Towers grounds.
If you want your own team to cater for your wedding, we can accommodate that too. Your chefs will be given use of our modern kitchens, which come complete with top-of-the-range equipment.
Because Carlton only does bespoke weddings many people have chosen us to host their multi-cultural wedding day. We begin by listening to your needs and requirements and then work with you to create your perfect day.
Bringing your own catering team? No problem – they can use Carlton Towers state-of-the-art kitchen facilities for a facility fee.
And remember, we can give you exclusive use of the house and gardens. Minimum booking rules apply.
