This hidden gem in Yorkshire is the former residence of Princess Mary (the current Queen's aunt), and has been lovingly restored to its former glory. When you take it over for your wedding, even the smallest details, such as freshly laid gravel pathways, ensure a picture-perfect backdrop. After the ceremony and wedding breakfast, spill into the Jacobean library for dancing, then rest your feet at an enormous fire. The six bedrooms are stately with a modern twist.
