We cant thank Tom and his team enough for making our wedding so special. From the very start Tom was so friendly & helpful and gave us some great ideas & supplier names to help bring our dream to life. Tom & his team took control of the day so we could relax and enjoy the moment (Tom even used a drinks tray to fan me when i got too hot before the ceremony :-)
All our guests absolutely loved the quality of the food & wine, it was really delicious & the Rose wine went down a treat!
Now, onto the views..... there are no words to describe how beautiful the setting was, as our evening guests arrived the sun setting over the valley was just magical! No matter where your sat you have an amazing view which makes for the most stunning photos.
We would highly recommend the Holmfirth Vineyard for weddings. We loved having our whole wedding day & night in one place with gorgeous apartments on site for our guests.
Thank you so much for making our wedding day the Best Ever!!!
Stunning views all around! We recently married at Holmfirth Vineyard. Our day was perfect in every way. From the first time we met Tom we felt assured that all was in hand. He was organised, very experienced, not pushy at all and listened to our requests. We had serveral informal meetings together before our wedding day which really helped iron out any worries. As we wanted an informal meal of ' Afternoon Tea' for our guests, the chef prepared a beautiful choice orsandwiches and treats for adults and children to enjoy. The serving staff ensured all guests had plenty of tea and coffee flowing.They were all polite and professional.
Many of our guests stayed in the apartments and all of them said how lovely they were to stay in. Several of them also had breakfast and an evening meal before they departed and once again, were delighted with their meals.
When your guests tell you, our wedding was the best wedding they had been too, know you have chosen the correct venue in a stunning location.
I would love to do it all over all!
Thank you everyone we shall be back soon to enjoy a coffee / meal with wine again soon. xx
Amazing Wedding Venue
We decided to get married at the vineyard as we had visited for a wine tasting tour before. We booked our day prior to Tom joining the vineyard and we noticed such a difference to the organisation and detail since he has. He invited us up to the vineyard to discuss our plans and what we wanted from the day and talk us through what his role would be.
We chose the vineyard because of the beautiful views and amazing food. In the months leading up to the big day we tasted the wedding menu and went back to perfect it to what we wanted. Even the owner Becky the owner said nothing is too much trouble for us and that was nice to hear.
Tom really organised everything to each little detail and left us just to enjoy our special day. Tom is laid back but extremely good at what he does and it made our day amazing. All of our guests were is awe of the venue, food, drink and fell in love with everything about the vineyard.
On the day everything flowed and our guests were always being attended to. The drink choices were great and just what we wanted. We will be going back soon.
If you want a wedding venue that is beautiful, has amazing food and someone to look after every detail meticulously the Holmfirth Vineyard is the place.
Incredible wedding venue
Put simply, Tom and his team were phenomenal throughout our entire wedding experience. During the planning process, Tom was always available, was ever helpful and had excellent attention to detail. During the day, his team worked tirelessly, even above and beyond the call of duty, to make our day a tremendous success. We've received positive feedback from all of our guests regarding the stunning location, amazing food, fascinating wine tour and perfect venue.
We would absolutely recommend Holmfirth Vineyard to other couples looking for an idyllic and picturesque venue.
We had our wedding reception at the vineyard in July 2019 and we had the most amazing day. We first headed over to view the venue in December 2018, it was a really cold day but we were blown away as soon as we arrived the views were amazing and as soon as we went inside we warmed up by the lovely staff. We had our initial meeting with Becky, who assured us nothing was too much trouble and that if we wanted to do things our own way that could be catered for. After visiting over 20 venues it was the place we both felt happy and that we didn't need to compromise, the complementary flight of wine was a lovely gesture. . From there on out everything was smooth running.
Once we decided it was the venue for us we headed back over and had our first meeting with Tom, he explained all the different options and put all the accommodation on hold for us. anything we wanted to move or swap around was not a problem and some of his ideas and suggestions were really helpful. We had big numbers so we knew we would be pretty much at capacity for the vineyard but that was never a concern for Tom or the team.
We travelled over to the vineyard for our tasting menu to decide on what we wanted for food, as we headed over the tops the snow came in and it was quite a blustery night so it was lovely to get there and try all the food and start to make our decisions, which was really hard as so much of it was tasty and deciding on a summer menu in the middle of the snow was fun. As we left we were told a couple of alternative routes back to avoid the snowy tops which was really useful.
As the planning continued Tom was always at the end of phone or on email and nothing was too much trouble. We made tweaks and changes along the way and whenever we popped up, we were always warmly received and often got a free drink if we were dinning, small touches like this did really make a difference.
On the day itself we got very typical Yorkshire weather, it absolutely poured down most of the day (even in the middle of July), this didn't dampen our spirits at all. Tom was ready and waiting with umbrellas when we arrived. Everyone adored the canapes and commented how tasty they were, the roast beef in Yorkshire pudding was a particular favourite. the main room was packed for our wedding breakfast but the service was great and so was the food, but the wine won the day. Everyone adored the rose and there were a lot of non-rose drinkers, having their own wine on site really added to the occasion and it is really nice wine.
We got a break in the weather so headed out for some photos and actually the moody skies really make the photos, we love them. We also had sparklers as dusk which Tom and the team helped us with which made for an epic photo.
Everyone said what a wonderful day they had and we all danced the night away, you could see the enjoyment on everyone's faces, the evening buffet also went down a storm. The quality of the food was really high. We were supposed to be having a BBQ, but the weather didn't quite facilitate that but the food was still really delicious even if we had an indoor BBQ.
All day and all night the staff we so friendly and smiley, in what must have been a very long day as we took advantage of the offered extended license. Everyone headed home happy and quite a few popped by the next day to by some wine to take home.
We had an amazing day at the vineyard and would do it all over again if we could.
The scenery and the food is delightful and it is a beautiful place to get married. We were wanting a Mediterranean wedding but due to costs decided to have it close to home. I came across Holmfirth Vineyard and thought it was perfect for us. Having spoke to Tom (manager and wedding coordinator) several times over the phone and via email, he really went out of his way to answer all my questions, made us feel at ease and excited for our day. We were able to come and visit the venue a few times before we married, so any concerns we had were addressed early on. We came for a tasting of the wedding breakfast and it was truly scrumptious, so hard to choose ... The day was beautiful, though it did rain (heavily at parts) it didn't matter because the location looked even more dramatic, the staff were lovely and helpful, the food was great and we had a lovely time. One worry I did have was seeing other guests at the restaurant or on the vineyard tour on my wedding day. Tom recently made some changes, so that meant we also got the conservatory with our package, which was perfect because it rained most of the time they were changing the room around. And the other guests were hardly noticeable when we out of the main room and really nice to us, I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. I would highly recommend the vinyard, definitely for the restaurant and for a wedding any time of year because its so beautiful. I'm still to try the tour, however I'm sure its great too we will definitely be back and I think most of our wedding guests will be too.
We had our wedding reception at Sheveling Wine Estate on 15th September 2018...
Where do we start?
From the beginning...
We visited the vineyard on a weekend away a year earlier and were introduced to the function room whilst on a wine tasting tour, even in pouring rain we were taken with the view. The room is stunningly simple with beautiful swirling chandeliers. We organised a package there and then and we were set.
Planning: Nothing was too much trouble for Maria, the wedding coordinator, during planning she went well above and beyond and whatever we asked the answer was yes! She had everything under control in the lead up as I was getting nervous, even adding guests on last minute, ensuring there was more than enough food and drink for our hungry and very thirsty guests (real ale fans- Maria ordered extra kegs which were needed)... She even went and personally bought extra candles for the outside area (we hired the conservatory, well worth it). We had organised a lot ourselves-- favours, cake, canapés, pick and mix, florist, room dressing and there was no issue with any of this. We gave Maria a room plan with quite a few instructions--different favours for different people and children and there was not a single one out of place on the day , so impressive.
The accommodation: Maria was available from very early on the morning of the wedding, which was reassuring, even sending someone to the accommodation when we couldn't work the stove and sent extra tea, coffee and milk which we really appreciated. We think the accommodation is beautiful, really comfy beds, spotlessly clean, loads of room and powerful showers. We had the 2 largest rooms the night before the wedding (sleeps 8 with THREE bathrooms in each!!) and all of the rooms the night of the wedding taken by our lovely guests who all loved them. When the guests arrived after the church service, there was ample parking at the accommodation and someone waiting with the keys and a list ensuring the right guests got the right apartments. Thank you! The bridal suite is stunning with a bottle of Sheveling's English sparkling wine waiting for us (we got in at 3am so we took this home), this is our favourite fizz and we drink a lot of wine.
The reception: The actual day could not have been more perfect! Becky was there when we arrived from church, she is owner of the vineyard, we had spoken to her the day that we booked and it was so lovely her being there. Her lovely son was in attendance too who was very keen to get involved and help out. She brought a big box of toys for the children to play with, I'm pretty sure she was giving out extra welcome drinks to our guests (we had rose wine, real ale and lager) and even offered to wash one of our flower girls' dresses when she spilled a drink down it- above and beyond, thank you so much. She kept asking what she could do for us and nearly ended up aiding me to the toilet at one point (my dress was quite big). Lots of our guests commented on how well looked after they felt. The way everything had been set out was just beautiful-- the presentation of the canapés, table plan and pick and mix table. Maria brought her own chalk pen to write on signs I had bought to put on a basket of throws and sparklers and made them really pretty, she has gorgeous hand writing. The whole day went to plan- we were behind schedule but it didn't matter and I didn't feel stressed in any way by it. Maria had it all in order as master of ceremonies, the meal came out seamlessly followed by tea and coffees. It was then set up for the night do while the guests went for a drink in the conservatory/ restaurant/ outside area. The candleabras which were used (for free) as part of our centrepieces were set up on the top table with the DJs kit looked really good.
The food: What can we say? We eat a lot and the food at the vineyard is some of the best we've had. Simple, tasty, high quality food and decent portions! We had our tasting months before the wedding and our guests had the choice of 3-4 options for all 3 courses which we asked our guests to choose before the day (not sure if they could have just ordered on the day or not) as we felt it would be quicker and easier to know beforehand. The food on the day was beautiful, some guests commenting that it was the best wedding breakfast they had ever had. It came out timely and not a single person got the wrong order, again so impressive. Particularly high praise for the beef, perfectly cooked and tender. Also for the Eton Mess, just wow. Having tea and coffee with dessert was also a nice touch.
The night time buffet was absolutely outstanding-we had asked if we could have chip butties for the evening and received the best chip butties ever: ciabatta bread, butter, the tastiest home made chips, gravy, mushy peas and they even grated some chipshop curry flavoured cheese leftover from the canapés (of which the leftovers were also available all evening). There was more than enough for everyone.
All the guests staying at the accommodation had breakfast back up in the function room of the vineyard for £10pp, buffet breakfast with high quality sausages, bacon, eggs, hash browns, mushrooms, tomatoes, beans, toast, sauce and preserves- just what was needed!
The staff: I feel emotional writing this. The most hardworking, happy, professional, caring group of people we could have ever hoped for providing customer service at our wedding. We really felt like every single person working there just wanted us to have the best day. Every one of them went above and beyond. Particular mention to Sam who ended up running some of our guests in his own car to B&B's in town when taxis didn't show up, thank you so much. And also to Joe and Pippa who stayed late so that we could keep dancing--it was supposed to finish at 1am and they let us carry on until 2:45am, when asked if we really needed to leave they just said 'don't worry, it's fine, just enjoy yourself' which we did, thanks to them. Joe even ran the stragglers down to the accommodation, thank you!
Maria- we cannot even begin to thank you enough for giving us the perfect wedding day. We felt your passion and genuine love for what you do in the lead up and on the day. We felt so well looked after and that you literally would have done anything for us. Thank you for being at my ridiculous beck and call in the weeks up to the wedding, never being more than a phone call or email away and forever putting my mind at ease. Best wedding planner ever!!
To the beautiful vineyard and all it's staff...
We love you, thank you!
See you very soon,
Mr. & Mrs. Oakes xxx
This is a late review but needs to be shared! My husband and I had our wedding reception held at the Vineyard near the end of June. The package we chose allowed us to have the entire venue to ourselves, which made the day feel even more special and private. There was a top notch wedding breakfast and evening buffet with multiple compliments from our guests. Ashley, the now former manager, did a fantastic job ensuring the entire day ran smoothly. Liz helped dress up the function room with flowers and it looked incredible (Our tables are featured on the wedding portion of their website currently). We chose the Vineyard as our venue for the unparalleled views but the quality of the food, stand out service, and professionalism of all the staff made it a day we will never forget!
Dear Becs and Maria,
We’d like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at the Vineyard who pulled out all the stops to help us have such a successful wedding day. Everyone complimented you all on the venue, the service and the lovely food. We really enjoyed ourselves, and it was a day to remember.
Many thanks, Kate and Stuart. 3rd August 2018
