Choosing that perfect venue for your big day is one of the most important decisions any couple can make, and now that choice has been made a little easier thanks to the new-look Rio Grande.

Re-launched earlier this month, the venue fit for royalty is now under the ownership of some of the country’s leading event organisers, specialising in making your wedding day, the most memorable date ever.

With your own personal wedding planner available, the Bradford-based venue is the one-stop wedding service provider for the North of England, with the ability to turn your dream day into reality within the blink of an eye.

Clients can remain stress-free, sit back and relax, knowing they are in the safe hands of some of the country’s leading wedding planners with premium contacts across the country.

Young, vibrant and unique styles can all be implemented to your exact specification as the highest standard of wedding planning arrives in Yorkshire.

Not a finger will have to be lifted, as mouth-watering menus, first-class entertainment and of course  the perfect setting, can all be organised by the Rio Grande team.

Even videographers and photographers are available upon request whilst guests will be treated to a host of surprises, from chocolate fountains to fresh fruit displays, and jalebi stalls to candy stalls.


With the potential to host up to 800 guests, the breath-taking Bradford-based venue was masterfully devised by a selection of the most-sought after designers today, providing a style surprise around every corner.

Oozing in class, the spacious Rio Suite, can seat up to 550 people, whilst the more intimate Skyline Suite option is available for hire for parties up to 250 people. Meanwhile, civil ceremonies can also be arranged in the Civil Ceremony Suite, with dedicated organisers on hand once more to add extra style and sophistication to the day.
