Unveiling the Top Yorkshire Wedding Venues: A SouthWestBand Approved List:

Choosing the perfect venue is a pivotal part of planning your dream wedding. As the leading Yorkshire wedding band, SouthWestBand has had the pleasure of performing at various venues across the county. Here, we present a selection of the best wedding venues in Yorkshire, including those where we are honoured to be a recommended supplier.

Nestled in the picturesque village of Bilbrough, The Normans is a historic and enchanting venue that seamlessly blends rustic charm with contemporary elegance. Its beautifully restored 18th-century barns and lush surroundings make it an ideal setting for both ceremonies and receptions. Dancefloor, bar and stage positioning are perfect at the Normans allowing the dancefloor to become the central hub of the night. Guests can grab a drink from the bar while only being a couple of paces from the dancefloor action rather than in a different room which can be all too common at some venues. As a recommended supplier, SouthWestBand has been the evening soundtrack to many celebrations at The Normans, and it is always a great night at this superb venue.
