The most important day of your life should be held at a place that will never be forgotten.

In a serene little corner of North Yorkshire - easily accesible from across the North East of England and all across Yorkshire, Crab Manor offers acres of beautifully

landscaped gardens, fountains and terraces (there’s even a courtyard hot tub and sauna –

perfect for a spot of well earned self-indulgence!). A wonderful place for a fairytale wedding at a location that will take your breath away - and it makes a great venue for extra special wedding photography by Dirk van der Werff.

A wedding at The Crab and Lobster at Asenby, near Thirsk, North Yorkshire is a magical experience. Wedding Photography in this location offers a unique series of opportunities whatever the weather - a wedding recently with Kelsey and Russell made her day when it snowed!

and also use Crab Manor Conservatory and Sitting Room. 
Maximum numbers available for the wedding breakfast are: Restaurant: 60 Guests, Crab and Lobster Pavilion: 55 guests, Seafood Rooms: 30 guests and a Garden Barbeque: 120 guests. Your wedding breakfast is held between between 4.00 and 5.30pm. Crab Manor also holds a licence to conduct civil ceremonies in the conservatory and sitting room.

Another review and details HERE:


Nestled in the heart of the North Yorkshire countryside, Crab Manor Hotel and the

Crab & Lobster Restaurant are ideal destinations for anyone who appreciates the finer

things in life. Offering opulent accommodation and exquisite cuisine, the twinned

establishments are perfect for a very special wedding and a well-deserved weekend break.

A true treasure trove of antiquities - what separates the ‘Crab’ from everywhere else is

its atmosphere - an eclectic mix of decor that belongs to another world, it simply isn’t your average hide-away.
