Venue Love: Skipbridge Country Weddings, top tips & special offers to help you plan your wedding or event
If you’ve been following our blog, you’ll know that so far we’ve shared profiles of some of our favourite wedding venues including Escrick Park Estate and Lanrick Estate. This week we are highlighting one of PapaKåta’s most loved Yorkshire venues:
Skipbridge Country Weddings (SCW) has always been a favourite venue of ours. We spend a lot of time at Skipbridge and we can’t wait to take advantage of this incredible venue this season. Throughout summer we hold lots of events at SCW which means we can be there almost every weekend, they just can’t keep us away! But, with over 3 acres of grassed goodness, can you blame us for going back? With all of its lovely quirks and added facilities, SCW provides a perfect space to host a PapaKåta Teepee or Sperry Tent.
It’s all in the detail:
Catering: SCW are happy to work with your caterer of choice, take a look at some of the fabulous caterers listed on our Little Black Book. From BBQ’s & hog roasts to canapes and fine dining, there’s no shortage of inspiration.
Event Toilet: At SCW there are luxury toilets and showers on site. Glamping guests can get ready in style, so there’s no need to worry about sourcing portaloos or queuing for the shower.
Generator: SCW has event power on site!
Bar: SCW has a bespoke bar which fits perfectly into the Kata’s and Sperry tents! The rolling barrel bar fits directly into the side of the Teepee and Sperry Tents which means there’s no wasted space within the tents. Serving a range of local ales, gin, wine and spirits, you’ll be sure to keep hydrated! In addition to the Rolling Barrel bar, SCW has a Grain Silo bar which is open from 9pm-12pm serving a range of single malt whiskey and craft gins- making it the perfect place to get your night cap.
Exclusivity: Yes, you’ll have exclusive use of this venue and accommodation for the day and night of your wedding, event or party.
Licensed for marriage: The beautiful Willow Bower is now licenced for a legal ceremony.
Ceremony Capacity: SCW has a capacity of 200 guests for a ceremony.
Accommodation: There is a B&B on site, 5 lovely cottages, a Shepherds Hut (often used for the bride and groom) and glamping tents. So, there’s no shortage of space for your guests to kick off their heels and roll into bed. SCW can also provide breakfast for your wedding guests within the Teepees or Sperry Tents.
What Skipbridge Country Weddings said:
Skipbridge Country Weddings is a small family run business, located between Harrogate and York, just outside Green Hammerton. With lovely green fields, which can comfortably cater for wedding and parties of up to 200 guests. There is parking on site for guest’s cars and plenty of room for camping or glamping. In addition to this there are five lovely holiday cottages and an on-site Bed and Breakfast to cater for the bride, groom and wedding guests. If you are lucky, you will be greeted by the resident Horses, Donkeys, Goats and Alpacas who live on site at SCW. Wedding guests love stroking and feeding the animals and the peacocks wander around looking very regal- excellent for photo opportunities.
