The Setting

Nestled on the edge of the North York Moors is Danby Castle, a historical and unique wedding venue steeped in history and character. Danby Castle, on a moorland spur overlooking the valley of the river Esk in The North York Moors, was built by the Latimer family in the early 1300’s. It’s lords included some of the most powerful nobles of medieval England.

With the death of the last of the Latimers, at the end of the 14th Century, the estate passed to the famous Neville family. They remodelled the South Range, where their Arms can be seen on the south wall of the Courtroom. In the 16th Century John Neville, Lord Latimer of Danby, who owned Danby Estate and Danby Castle, married Catherine Parr, (Henry VIII’s last wife,) and their marital home was Danby Castle
