Gisborough Hall is a beautiful venue for weddings in North Yorkshire. For further examples of my work or too book me for your wedding visit.

A little history of Gisborough Hall, near Guisborough

This elegant grade II listed building is a magnificent country house hotel set on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors, and just outside the market town of Guisborough.

The mansion was built by Admiral Thomas Chaloner in 1856 an it eventually became the baronial home of the first Lord Gisborough, Richard Chaloner, who took the title when he went to the House of Lords.

He decided to spell his title differently to the ancient capital town of Cleveland, from which it took its name, and to this day the family’s former ancestral home continues to be known as Gisborough – rather than Guisborough – Hall.

In the 1940s, the mansion was leased to North Riding Council as an old people’s home.

In 2002 the building was bought by the Macdonald Hotel group and was lavishly restored to it's former glory at a cost of 8 million.
