A Summer of Weddings

At Saltmarshe Hall…

Phew! We’ve had one of the busiest and most beautiful of summers at Saltmarshe Hall.

With thanks to the sizzling weather, our brides, grooms and guests have not only been able to relax by the cool waters of our outdoor pool, but have made the most of record high temperatures, enjoying alfresco dining on our beautiful terrace. A summer of sun has also meant that the hall has hosted an abundance of outdoor ceremonies, and our flower-filled gardens have made for the perfect setting.

Shall we discover a little more about Summer weddings at Saltmarshe?

Whats new???

The Terrace

The glorious terrace at Saltmarshe Hall has a capacity for 118 seated for a wedding breakfast, meaning it’s never been easier to enjoy a day surrounded by your closest friends and family. Make the most of the summer sun as you enjoy fine dining, refreshing drinks and cocktails, created by the dedicated chefs and team at the hall.

As the evening sets in, you don't have to worry about the chill. Our terrace has heaters and sides that can be put in place, if required. Enjoy an evening of dancing and celebrations with a true Mediterranean style backdrop. A stunning ending to the perfect wedding day.

Kind Words…

Francesca & Ben, 27/07/2018

Our outdoor ceremony was absolutely perfect and everyone commented on how different it was having both the wedding and our wedding breakfast outside. I also have to say a special thank you to the whole Saltmarshe team on the day who went above and beyond to make sure I had my dream ceremony when at times it looked like mother nature had other plans!

We had a fantastic day (my Nan even declared it the best wedding she had ever been to - high praise indeed).

So, if you’re dreaming of outdoor dining on your special day, or a ceremony inspired by nature then get do get in contact with our weddings and events team at Saltmarshe Hall. We can’t wait to hear about your wedding visions!

A Walk Around The Gardens

A Walk Around The Gardens

Saltmarshe Hall

Come and take a walk around our interesting and picturesque gardens this summer and see what you can find!

From our walled garden, to grand herbaceous borders, sweeping lawns and tree-lined walkways, our gardens are a fabulous year-round experience for anyone who comes to visit.

Set in 17 acres of stunning Yorkshire countryside and fronted by the River Ouse, beautiful and picturesque views can be seen from all areas of the garden.

The parkland offers opportunities to explore riverside walks, ancient trees and discover hidden wildlife. For the more adventurous hiker or cyclist, we’re on the Trans-Pennine trail running from Hornsea to Southport.

 

Outdoor Weddings and Events

All of our reception rooms inside the Hall are licensed for weddings, but why not complement this with an outdoor wedding? With acres of beautiful grounds and gardens you can guarantee a unique celebration. We listen to what you want, whether having it in a serene woodland setting or under a canopy of blossom trees, letting your creative input flourish, our team then make it happen! An outdoor wedding at Saltmarshe is truly a wedding to remember. 

We don’t just host weddings in our grounds and gardens, to utilise it’s beauty as much as we can in these Summer months, we host an array of exciting and diverse events for anyone and everyone to join us and enjoy. To keep updated on what there is to offer, join our mailing list by enquiring here!

Our annual garden open day is being held this Sunday (3rd of June - see events for details); with our gardeners on standby to give tours and offer information regarding the multitude of life we have within the vicinity. This year, we have a new addition to our gardens that you might find quite interesting – carnivorous plants! We thought we’d shed some light on a couple that we found the most weird and wonderful, let us know what you think, or even come and see them yourself!

The Cobra Lily

There is only one species of this fascinating plant, naturally found along mountain streamsides of North California and Oregon.
Flies are attracted to nectar on the forked 'tongue' guiding them into the lobster pot style opening into the hood. Light enters the hood through the translucent windows and the fly becomes confused and cannot find the exit. The spiral trap has rows of downward pointing hairs making the descent one way. We’ve had to be very specific in where we’ve located these in our gardens due to most of them liking a bright, cool position away from hot summer temperatures and central heating in the winter. They tend to thrive outside in a sheltered position, so we have a few places in mind!

The Venus Fly Trap

We love these… Venus flytraps are carnivorous plants native to a small region of wetlands in America. They have however been introduced into other areas of the world (soon to be including Saltmarshe Hall!) and are really popular house plants too. The flytrap snaps shut and imprisons its prey when triggered by a time and touch sensitive mechanism – interesting eh?! Once the prey has been digested, the trap re-opens ready for another victim. Each individual trap on the Venus flytrap can only operate three or four times, after which it photosynthesizes like a normal leaf or dies back. The Saltmarshe gardeners are safe… They only feed on a diet of flies and small bugs.

The Sundew

Sundews are carnivorous plants with an ingenious way to catch their prey. Sundew plants have sticky pads that trap insects. The plants are also attractive, often brightly coloured rosettes. Growing sundews is common in terrariums or other warm, moist areas that mimic their natural bog habitat, in which we have adapted an area specifically for them in our gardens. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So there we are, we hope to see you for our open garden day this Sunday, if not – get in touch with us for when the next one is! 

 

Thanks for reading!
