About Woodlands Hotel

If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue in Leeds Woodlands offers a superior elegant atmosphere which makes the perfect venue for a stylish and romantic wedding day.

Woodlands is one of the finest luxury hotels in Leeds. This boutique hotel is set in beautiful landscaped grounds on the outskirts of Leeds city centre, with 23 individually designed bedrooms and an award winning restaurant. Packed with character, this lovingly restored hotel is only three miles from the vibrant, cosmopolitan city of Leeds. Privately owned and managed, the hotel was originally built for a local textile mill owner in 1871. It has been restored to its former glory with modern design throughout our guest areas from bedrooms to function rooms. Consider it less a hotel and more your own country retreat!

Weddings at Woodlands are a very special occasion designed especially for you. We have a strict policy of only hosting one wedding at a time. Unlike other venues, there are no rules, set numbers or required packages – our wedding coordinators will help you design the day of your dreams from red carpet arrival to rose petal turndown. We can cater for wedding between 30 and 200 guests in our events spaces which include our stunning garden terrace and permanent marquee space. We are also licensed for Civil Ceremonies or if you prefer a church wedding there are two lovely local churches to choose from.

You can also enjoy the luxury of using Woodlands on an exclusive use basis. You and your guests can enjoy the freedom of using the whole hotel and gardens from 1pm on the day of your wedding until 11am the following day.

Our wedding planners will look after you every step of the way. Experts in turning your dreams into reality, they can help with everything from room dressing to recommending suppliers.

A Beautiful Hotel and an AMAZING Wedding Venue!!

By Amy Southon, on 16 Dec 2014

We were married at Woodlands on the 13th of December 2014 and our day was just perfect from start to finish. Jessica our wedding co-ordinator was amazing, the day ran so smoothly. We were blown away with how stunning the marquee looked for our winter wonderland wedding! The staff are brilliant, all our guests commented on how friendly and welcoming they all were. The food was gorgeous and the bedrooms are to die for! All in all one hell of a wedding venue, would recommend it to everyone! We had the best day ever and made lots of wonderful memories that we will treasure forever. Mr & Mrs Southon x

Amazing

By Mr and Mrs Smith, on 12 Dec 2014

We cannot thank the staff enough who worked on Friday 4th July 2014 for our wedding. The venue was dressed and looked stunning, the staff were faultless could not do enough for you to ensure the smooth running of the day, constantly re filling drinks don't think are glasses were ever empty! The whole day was amazing and every single person there commented on what a fantastic service we was given on our special day. The service from our wedding coordinator Jessica was great with regards to communication over the 11 month period passing emails if I ever had a query Jessica would respond straight away and always dealt with the matter etc and the set up and order of the day! I would highly recommend the woodlands and We will definitely be back for a meal and a one nights stay.

Fantastic Day

By Elizabeth & Joe Boyden, on 12 Dec 2014

Everything was very professionally handled on the day and we had a fantastic time. Emily was especially good at rounding up all our guests and making sure everything was done as we asked. Thank you very much to Jessica our wedding coordinator for all her hard work and help. We had the wedding day we really wanted.

Perfect

By Mr and Mrs Kershaw, on 12 Dec 2014

The day was soooooo perfect. Honestly couldn't have asked for it to be any better. Everything went like clock work. I would hand on heart recommend anybody to get married at The Woodlands. It was the best day of our lives and we have so many AMAZING memories that we will never forget. Every single person there said what an amazing venue you have - from the grounds, to the food and especially the staff.

Spectacular

By Zoe & Nev, on 24 Jul 2014

Just the say overall the wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more. It flowed even better that we’d planned/expected. Once we’d seen the hotel & grounds many months ago, we knew it was the venue for us. Beautiful rooms, amazing gardens and small enough to make everything feel personalised to support our none-traditional wedding idea’s. You made the planning for day very pain free, from our first meeting. Felt really slick and you had all area’s covered that we would have never considered. The day felt so relaxed and in control in the run up for both Nev & I. Every member of staff that we dealt with were helpful, friendly & professional. The room set up for the ceremony worked really well, and the time in the gardens was beautiful. The string quartet were fantastic & the 2 hours in the gardens were perfect. Lots to keep the children entertained and the adults with the garden games. The food was excellent, we’ve had many comments regarding how gorgeous the steak was & I can certainly vouch for the sea bass. The quality of the food whilst catering in volume is a real credit.The Manager (apologies cannot recall his name ) ran the meal & speeches perfectly & both you & he made us feel relaxed & that everything was controlled throughout the day. Again the evening welcome drinks, music & food all went to plan. Guests particularly commented on the chicken wings at the evening reception.

Remarkable

By Mandy, on 24 Jul 2014

John and I would like to express our deepest gratitude to you and your team for making our wedding day on the 23 May 2014 ever sooo fun and fantastic. The staff and hotel was remarkable. Please do extend our deepest thanks to Nigel who managed to put up with all the craziness that evening. Thank you for helping with the wedding planning, I simply could have not done it without you, you were God-send.

The most amazing day from start to finish

By Karris and Chris Brearley, on 24 Jul 2014

I have to say me and Chris had the most amazing day from start to finish, I couldn't of had a better venue and staff that looked after our guests on the day. You did an awesome job of communicating with us with every final detail. We had the best day of our lives!!! Want to do it all over again. Had great feedback from the guests, saying how the whole day fell into place from drinks on the terrace, the meal, and the set up of the room. Loved everything about it!! It's been emotional.

Faultless evening

By Helen Blackmore, on 24 Jul 2014

I would like to thank you and all of the staff at the Woodlands for a superb evening. Everything ran smoothly with no hiccups. It was a success and everyone appeared to enjoy themselves. To top it off – the weather was fab! I think a few people were on about booking their wedding there last night – ha! Please can you personally thank that guy (so sorry I have forgotten his name) who managed last night. He was great
