Courtyard Weddings

Holdsworth House is perhaps the most stunning venue in West Yorkshire for your wedding. As well as a choice of five rooms indoors you can also add the pretty outdoor courtyard to the list of possible spaces to hold your civil marriage or partnership at Holdsworth House.

The Colonnade Courtyard is a private area and – as its name suggests – is an example of classical architecture with a row of columns supporting a porch which fronts the sunny courtyard, within the hotel walls.

This area has been approved by the Calderdale Registrar as a place where marriages and civil partnerships performed by them can legally take place. The Colonnade Courtyard is beautiful dressed with flowers and sprinkled with rose petals or confetti and with candles lighting the large lanterns. The marriage takes place beneath the Colonnade itself, whilst your guests enjoy the sun trap of the courtyard. We’ll place seating for around 40 guests, leaving room for a few more to stand and watch the ceremony, which lasts around 30 minutes.

The Colonnade Courtyard is one of only a handful of outdoor wedding options in West Yorkshire, officially approved. Adjacent to the spacious Stuart Room, where most wedding breakfasts are served, the whole area combines brilliantly to offer you a private wing of the hotel for your function.

For more information or to come and view the outdoor wedding area, please call Claire Nicholl on 01422 240024 to make an appointment.
