Planning your springtime wedding at Escrick Park

By Helen Pentith  //  Tue 16th February 2016
Spring is in the air at Escrick Park! It may be cold out, but the first blossom is already on the trees and the daffodils are in bloom throughout our lovely part of rural Yorkshire. With the turn of the seasons our thoughts automatically turn to the exciting springtime weddings we’ll be hosting over the next few months. If you’re planning to tie the knot in 2017, springtime in Escrick Park is the perfect time and the perfect place to do so. Here’s why.

The world in bloom

There’s no more beautiful time to visit Escrick Park than the springtime. The landscape comes alive between March and May, with many of the country’s most beautiful blooms at their most spectacular just in time for your spring wedding. The bluebells emerge in April, carpeting the woods with a sleepy blue haze and filling the air with their subtle fragrance. They make our beautiful woodland wedding venue a truly magical space to say your ‘I dos’. Spring is also a time when the leaves return to the trees, the grass bounces back in green abundance and the wildlife returns from its winter slumber. Channel this positive feeling during the best day of your life. 

The best of British weather

Planning a wedding in the UK is always a bit of a gamble, with our unreliable climate meaning that sunshine is never a guarantee. However, Spring is often the time of year when our weather is at its finest. You won’t need to worry about burning in the sun or sweltering beneath a suit jacket, and can keep your fingers crossed that the sun comes out to infuse the day with golden spring sunshine. If you are treated to a few April showers, then our Parkland wedding venue is the perfect place to pitch a marquee or tepee to keep your guests warm and dry. 

A new beginning in the out-of-doors

Spring has traditionally been seen as a time of new beginnings, rebirth and reinvigoration. Easter is celebrated by Christians as the time when Jesus rose from the dead, and in the natural world animal species from sheep to ducks, hares to chickens give birth to their young at this time of year. In other cultures, the arrival of spring rather than the turn of the Gregorian calendar marks the start of a New Year. What better time to begin your new life together than the season of new beginnings? 

Our beautiful facilities

Escrick Park Estate offers stunning wedding facilities throughout the year. If you’d like to tie the knot with us then you can use our parkland, woodland and garden wedding venues to find the perfect backdrop to your special day. The ceremony can be held in the charming Little Theatre, and we can help you to organise the event by suggesting local wedding suppliers including marquee hire companies, wedding caterers, wedding photographers, florists, tailors and even artists.
