Forest weddings

Congratulations on your engagement!

Now comes the exciting time of planning your wedding day exactly the way you want it. We’re here to help you get it just right.

A wedding at Dalby means a unique, tailor-made day in the beautiful setting of The Great Yorkshire Forest. Dalby is set in stunning woodland of the North York Moors.

Make the most of the forest surroundings by holding your ceremony on our outside terrace overlooking the treeline. We also have a dedicated room inside with beautiful floor to ceiling views across the forest landscape.
