All of us here at The Wainstones Hotel would like to take this opportunity to congratulate you both on your forthcoming Wedding and extend our very best wishes for your wonderful future together.

Built originally as a farmhouse in the 17th Century The Wainstones Hotel retains much of the original charm and character of the building. Under the same family ownership for more than 20 years, we offer an individually tailored day for every couple with the highest quality Service and Dining.

Central to our wedding planning is the fact that we will only host one Wedding Reception in the hotel on any one day regardless of the size of the Wedding. This ensures that you have our most senior team looking after all of your requirements.

The Resolution Suite caters for up to 120 guests for the daytime meals and up to 150 guests for the more informally set Evening Reception. It can also be adjusted in size for smaller events and is fully licensed to hold Civil Wedding Ceremonies.

After checking the availability of your chosen date, we offer the option of provisionally booking the date for 14 days with no charge and no obligation.

Your Wedding Day at The Wainstones Hotel

The Ceremony:

The Wainstones Hotel is an approved venue for Civil Marriages. This enables you to hold the ceremony, reception and evening reception in one venue. We have an intimate private garden designed mainly by a Wedding Photographer which is an ideal setting for photographs at most times of the year.
There follows guidance notes from the Registrars Office for couples wishing to have a Civil Ceremony:
1.    Having confirmed the date and time of their marriage at the ‘approved’ premises, the couple should contact the local office situated at: Registration Office, County Hall, Northallerton, North Yorkshire, DL7 8XE. Telephone 01609 780780.
2.    They need to confirm with the Superintendent Registrar that he/she can attend and conduct the ceremony at the day and time in question. This can be done up to 12 months in advance of the marriage and should always be done as soon as possible.
3.    The couple will then receive written confirmation within 7 days of the phone call. This will outline: the date and place they will need to give the legal notice of their intention to marry, the documents they need to produce and the fee to be paid.
NB: A notice of intention to marry can be a maximum of 12 months in advance of the date. This must be done before the Superintendent Registrar of the office in the district in which you reside. You CANNOT get married without giving due notice in the district(s) where you live.

Room Hire Charges for your Civil Ceremony -- Upto 40 guests £170.00    Over 40 Guests -- £200.00

The Reception:

The Resolution Suite can accommodate up to 120 guests for a formally set afternoon meal. This varies depending on table style chosen. A maximum of 100 guests between a Top Table and eight round tables or a maximum of 120 guests between a top table and ten rectangular tables. We offer a wide range of menus for the afternoon reception which can be viewed later in the package. Our wedding menus and drinks suggestions are designed to be highly flexible and individually priced; however,  Saturdays between the beginning of April and the end of September and Sundays of Bank Holiday weekends are our highest season and we have had to place slightly more restrictions on these dates. These are below where we outline our wedding packages.

For the daytime part of the Reception, Room Hire is included in all of our three course menus.

Evening Reception:

The evening reception is now established as a very popular way to invite additional guests to join your family and close friends in celebrating your special day after the wedding breakfast with the added benefit of music and dancing. Our maximum number of guests for the more informal layout of an evening reception is 150. If choosing a disco as your evening entertainment we would generally ask that only the Resident Disco is used as this is ideal in size and style for The Resolution Suite. Other forms of entertainment are also welcomed but must be discussed with one of our managers in advance to ensure that their needs can be accommodated. Between the beginning of April and the end of September on Saturdays and Bank Holiday Weekend Sundays, we are unable to take bookings for an evening reception only although we will be glad to discuss Friday or Sunday alternatives or dates outwith this high season.


The hotel as 24 en suite bedrooms. Our 4 Poster bedroom is included in our package if the daytime part of the Wedding Reception  is for 50 guests or more. All other rooms are available to your guests at a discounted rate. Up to 19 of these other rooms can be provisionally reserved when confirming your wedding booking. Your guests can then call direct to make the confirmed bookings. Any rooms not booked by 14 days before the wedding would then be released.

The Wedding Packages

Our Wedding Menus, Drinks Suggestions and Evening Buffets are individually priced to allow you maximum flexibility in designing Your Day the way you want it.

We have tried to make choosing and pricing your menus and drinks packages as simple as possible while still giving the widest choices. To do this, we have included the following:

  • Our help and advice through all stages of your wedding planning.
  • The Room Hire costs for the daytime meal and evening reception.
  • White Linen Napkins or Linstyle Napkins in a range of colours.
  • The use of any of our range of five different cake stands.
  • The use of our silver cake knife.
  • The Master of Ceremonies to make the announcements and guide the Wedding Day.
  • Complimentary Four Poster Bedroom and Breakfast for the Bride and Groom if there are 50 guests or more at the daytime meal.

If you choose not to have the three courses or the evening buffet you are likely to incur some of the room hire charges. Please let us know and we will be happy to confirm specific prices.

On Saturdays between the beginning of April and the end of September and Sundays of Bank Holiday Weekends, we are generally only able to take Wedding Bookings which include both an afternoon and evening reception which are for a minimum of 50 guests.
