One of the most unforgettable things about weddings at Bivouac, tucked away in the Yorkshire Dales, is the view.

From the top of the wooded hill where your wedding takes place, the land drops away into a spectacular, sweeping valley.

The emphasis here is firmly on the scenic outdoors - although the formalities can take place in front of a registrar at the equally dramatic castle hotel at Swinton Park. A woodland ceremony in the Druid's Plantation, an 18th-century folly, followed by the reception in interlinked, rustic-chic yurts, and eco-friendly accommodation for 94 in cosy cabins or yurts (plus the on-site secluded spa), make for an extraordinary wedding.

Ceremony capacity: 80
