As promised I’m carrying on with the inspiration I found whilst on my trip to York last week by sharing with you today the gorgeous little boutique hotel we stayed in .. Marmadukes.
I fell in love with this hotel when I found it online because of its gorgeous antique furnishings and vintage styling and it totally lived up to my expectations! We stayed in a Four Poster room with a roll top bath and couldn’t have been more comfy!

We had a fantastic breakfast ( in the lovely sunny conservatory on the first day and in our room on the second ) and I was delighted to find when I checked out that they also have a Civil License and accomodate weddings!
The lovely Jodie who is their wedding co-ordinator was more than happy for me to share what they offer with you and sent me lots of information. You can also find out more on their website

They have a capacity to sleep up to 44 people and can accommodate 50 for a wedding ceremony and breakfast and then 100 for the evening reception.

I asked Jodie to tell me a little more about what they offer for weddings at Marmadukes ….
