The Rendezvous is the perfect location for your Yorkshire Dales wedding
Thanks to our fantastic location on the doorstep of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, the Rendezvous Hotel makes the perfect wedding venue. We take great pride in offering couples a personal, bespoke service and with a range of stunning features and high-quality accommodation, we can help you create a truly memorable wedding day.
Tailor-made weddings at the Rendezvous
We know that every wedding is unique and that every couple is different. We offer a wide range settings and options, designed to be tailor-made to suit your individual requirements. Our bespoke wedding service is designed to help you plan and create the wedding you’ve always dreamt of and our dedicated wedding team are experienced in ensuring weddings at the Rendezvous are stress free and memorable.
We are a fully licensed wedding venue and Civil Ceremonies can be held in either of our two licensed function suites. Our delightful canal side conservatory looks out across the beautiful Yorkshire Dales, whilst our Baby Swan Conservatory overlooks the peaceful Leeds/Liverpool Canal, with a stunning backdrop of the Yorkshire Dales. Whether you’d like to arrive in unforgettable style by canal boat, or are simply looking for a beautiful backdrop to your photos, we think our wedding suites are pretty hard to beat.
Perfect photo opportunities
We have the perfect solution to Yorkshire’s unpredictable weather! If the sun is shining our canal setting is the ideal backdrop, with picturesque views of the Dales in the background, but if the weather isn’t so good, our stunning double-sided dividing staircase makes a memorable setting.
Delicious menus to suit all tastes
We take great pride in our delicious wedding breakfast menus, with a wide range of options to suit all tastes and requirements. We can cater for any number of guests between 4 and 400 and if you have a themed menu in mind, we’ll work hard to create the perfect menu for your special day.
Dance the night away
Our spacious ballroom is the ideal location for your evening function, with plenty of space for up to 400 guests to dance the night away. If you’re planning a smaller wedding, we have a selection of function suites, options to suit all requirements.
Helping you plan your dream wedding in Yorkshire
Whether you’re planning an intimate wedding or have a grander occasion in mind, why not come and talk through your ideas? We believe our choice of wedding facilities is second to none and regardless of the size of your wedding, we’ll work hard to ensure that your wedding day is everything you’d dreamt of and more!

Santa’s visit to the Rendezvous
It’s been long overdue but we finally got it. Here you can see a video that we’ve managed to make on the Christmas Day when Santa himself (yes, real Santa!) came to visit all the kids at the Rendezvous. It was remaining a lot that day but nothing scares Him away!
Despite the weather even the youngest of kids came out to greet him by the canal. Oh what a fantastic day it was!
Planning a party or special event? Why not come to the Rendezvous?
There’s nothing we like more than a party and here at the Rendezvous Hotel we take great pride in the personal approach we bring to arranging special events and functions.
We know just how important it is to ensure that your event is just right and whether you’re planning a wedding, birthday party, exhibition or a dinner dance, we’ll go the extra mile to help you create something truly memorable.
The Rendezvous has been the location for a huge range of different events and functions over the years and our team are experienced in arranging everything from christening parties, through to AGMs, product launches and gala dinners. Regardless of the size of your event, we’ll offer you the undivided attention of one of our Managers and from the planning stages through the event itself, you’ll have the reassurance of knowing that we’ll be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly.
We have a range of function rooms available; from small rooms ideal for meetings, or our VIP Balconied Ballroom which can accommodate up to 400 guests and offers superb facilities including a private bar, VIP indoor balcony, flexible staging, cloakrooms and an outside balcony. We provide superb quality catering for events of all sizes, from delicious buffets through to stunning dinner menus.
We know that when it comes to planning an unforgettable event it’s those all-important finishing touches which can really help to create an impact. Depending on your requirements, we can provide a red carpet – perfect for a little Hollywood glamour – a host to act as an MC, co-ordinating table linen and table decorations. We even have our very own resident DJ to help make your party go with a swing.
