Wine and weddings: a match made in heaven. For a unique and unforgettable experience, we love this new wedding venue idea: I dos in a vineyard…
Always on the lookout for fabulous new wedding venue ideas, we love the beautifully chic and stylish Shelving Wine Estate at Holmfirth Vineyard as an unforgettable and magical location to exchange vows. With breathtaking views overlooking the Holme Valley and Peak District National Park, this wedding venue in Yorkshire is new to couples looking to get married in 2018 and we think it’s destined for a heady mix of deeply romantic couples who happen to be serious wine connoisseurs too…
And this quirky venue setting has already experienced something of a remarkable history. Since its launch in 2007, Holmfirth Vineyard has established itself as a popular tourist attraction, attracting nearly 40,000 visitors every year to its vineyard tours, wine shop and wine tasting events, self-catering apartments, restaurant and cafe. Just one year ago however, a devastating fire caused by self-combusting tea-towels in the tumble dryer (which has given us all pause for thought) tore through the winery and forced the vineyard to close down.
Not to be deterred by this setback, its owners Ian and Rebecca Sheveling immediately set about undertaking a major restoration project with a brand new restaurant, revamped winery and space for conferences and weddings. The vineyard also has seven eco-friendly apartments located at the foot of the vines.
Now a stunning wedding venue, the vineyard offers modern facilities, unique country charm and unrivalled photo opportunities with breathtaking views of the Holme Valley stretching out over The Peak District National Park in every direction.
For bespoke wedding packages that suit your tastes and wedding party, the vineyard offers a range of options and complete versatility of the venue, with the choice of an indoor or outdoor ceremony, outdoor blessing or magical twilight wedding. Packages include a complimentary Honeymoon Suite at the eco-friendly Retreat Complex, located at the foot of the vines, where self-catering accommodation is available for guests.
We love the thought of couples raising a toast to the start of married life with a glass of award-winning sparkling wine! After all, in vino veritas! For more information and to book your fabulous wedding in 2018, visit holmfirthvineyard.com
