Sledmere House :-
18th century private residence of Sir Taton Sykes, set in stunning gardens. Registered for civil ceremonies, or why not marry in the church built right next door? Known for its beautiful library and sweeping staircase, and the only way to do confetti - petals from the dome by the venue staff which is just one of the highlights at a Sledmere House wedding.

One of the most special features that Sledmere House can provide is the 'Petal Drop.' As the Bride and Groom stand hand in hand together on the Imperial Staircase, wedding guests gasp in awe as rose petals begin to fall from the glass dome high above. This is one of the most special photographic opportunities for you during your most special day.
Venue History: Sledmere House is home to Sir Tatton Sykes, 8th Baronet, and has sat high on top of the Yorkshire Wolds for over 250 years. Richard Sykes began the building of Sledmere House in 1751. The House was then extended during the 1790s by his son Christopher Sykes, 2nd Baronet, who engaged the work and skills of Joseph Rose, the most famous plasterer of his day and 'Capability' Brown one of the most famous English Landscape Architects. Together, their work resulted in the beauty and magnificence of both the interior of the House and the Parkland outside that we can still see and enjoy today.
