Wedding 13 Aug 2022

We couldn鈥檛 have chosen a better venue to host our wedding and allowing us to book for the entire weekend along with close family members also being able stay within the house. Stephanie (and Cara) were always so helpful with the entire planning and organization, despite us having to do so while living in the U.S. They are so accommodating and flexible. Stephanie took care of vendor communication behind the scenes seamlessly and efficiently, and the actual wedding itself ended up being absolutely perfect because of her organization and suggestions. Being able to utilize the house and grounds for each part of the wedding was so special. It is a beautiful, unique venue that allowed us to create something bespoke for our wants. I can鈥檛 recommend Birdsall House enough! I only wish we were able to spend even more time there! Thank you again for putting together the most amazing wedding weekend for us.

John and Ellie wedding 25 September 2021

We greatly enjoyed our visit on the above occasion, and were struck by the quality of the organisation, and the dedication of the staff to provide a quality service, in particular a young man called Harry, who worked tirelessly throughout the day. Thank you.

One of a kind!

Where do I begin with Birdsall House, it is a home from home, where you are greeted with similes, a biscuit and cup of tea. Our whole wedding planning process was stress free thanks to Birdsall, they were so helpful and supportive with everything.
When it came to the big day they shined even brighter with how seamless the day flowed, the subtle finishing touches and how the Birdsall charm helped elevate the day.
My husband and I highly recommend this venue. It has character, charm, does not feel heavily commercialised and is one of a kind. Thank you Birdsall for everything.

What a gem of a venue

We held our wedding at Birdsall House and honestly had the best day of our lives. Becky, the wedding coordinator helped us seamlessly move our date 3 times because of the pandemic and it was perfect. The team went out of their way to make sure we had everything and they organised the weekend beautifully, right down to the smallest detail. Our guests were all wowed by the setting and loved being able to eat in the stunning ballroom. We couldn't recommend Birdsall House more highly, it was the perfect venue for our wedding and a place we will always be fond of.

Gorgeous English Wedding

I recently had my wedding at Birdsall House and it was the most perfect venue in every way! Cara and Becky who coordinate all of the weddings were second to none and so accommodating all the way through. We had our wedding in a marquee, on the grounds, in front of the house and next to the old church ruins, which was so picturesque! Fab for photos! I cannot sing their praises enough, no ask was too much and everything was made easy and simple! I would strongly recommend them if you are looking for a gorgeous English wedding with the option to be either inside or outside of a beautiful house with a stunning backdrop.

The team at Birdsall House did an amazing job

Everything was discussed and agreed upon in planning meetings with Lady Cara and Becky. They went through the timings and logistics of the whole wedding weekend and provided brilliant ideas that we hadn't even thought about!

The beautiful surroundings of Birdsall House and St Mary's Church provided a wonderful and unique setting for our special day. We also loved our wedding photos being taken at the old temple, the 12th century ruins and the lake.

Lady Cara and Becky made everything run smoothly from start to finish, allowing us to relax and enjoy the day to the full.

A beautiful venue with an excellent team that produced the best day, which we will remember forever!"

Just Perfect

We just wanted to email you to thank you again for the incredible job you did for us on our wedding day. As you know, Birdsall House is a picturesque wedding venue but what truly makes it exceptional, the real beauty, is the people behind it - all of you! The family feel you bring creates a unique atmosphere and during our wedding, instead of it feeling like a corporate set-up wedding venue, it felt like getting married in a family home. You went above and beyond, making us feel at ease and welcomed.

We will forever be thankful for the perfect timing in which Birdsall House became a wedding venue and forever grateful to you all for everything you did for us, seen and unseen.

We hope that Birdsall House will continue to thrive and that each of you will have a beautifully blessed future

Great memories!

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for making the 28th such a wonderful day for Mirembe and me.

I still can鈥檛 quite believe that we even managed to hold the blessing outside in the sunshine! Our luck continued on honeymoon, with the most glorious weather on Skye. On the day, everything could not have been more perfect and we really appreciated the relaxed and professional manner with which you handled everything. There was high praise from the guests for the venue, the food, the bar and the general ambience.

Birdsall House Wedding

You and Cara were fantastic, you went over and above what was expected.
It wouldn鈥檛 have run as smoothly as it did without your help! It鈥檚 an amazing venue but your attention to detail is second to none. Simple things such as the hair and make up area that was set up emphasised how much attention you pay to all that goes into helping plan such a day. Therefore I just wanted to email to say thanks ever so much for helping out on what was a day that Tom and I will remember for the rest of our lives :-)

The Perfect setting for an amazing day

Birdsall House was everything we could have wished for on our Wedding Day.
From the subtle contemporary restoration of the Bridal Suites to the classical splendour of the Yorkshire setting, this family home tucked away in a hidden corner of the Wolds was the prefect setting for an amazing day.
Not wanting a manufactured 'package' wedding , Lady Cara listened to what we wanted and she, along with the whole team achieved a perfect balance of style, elegance and relaxed informality that was so important to us and made our guests feel so welcome.
So many commented that it was the most perfect wedding that they had ever been to!

Thank you so much for the memories!

A truly magical venue

We had the most wonderful wedding at Birdsall House and it was everything we had hoped for. We felt welcomed like family during the planning and set up of the wedding and well hosted guests on our wedding day. All of the Birdsall team were so friendly, welcoming and went the extra mile from the initial set up through to breakfast the next morning. They created such a happy and relaxed environment for us to get ready in on the morning of the wedding, with beautifully decorated rooms, large bathrooms and lunch.
All of our guests commented on what a unique and simply beautiful venue Birdsall House is and we loved the versatility of allowing our guests to be in a different area of the house and grounds for each key part of the day.
Above all it was the whole day felt very personal and bespoke to us as a couple. We couldn鈥檛 recommend Birdsall House more highly as a destination for future couples looking for a truly magical venue.

Our wedding at Birdsall

Having the freedom and flexibility to plan the wedding we wanted, rather than being restricted by a set package, was most appealing to my husband and I. We wanted a day that was utterly unique and Birdsall House gave us that and so much more. Indeed, we are sure that Lady Cara and her team will make certain that no two weddings are ever the same there.

Having exclusive use of the entire venue made a definite difference to us. We felt privileged to host our family and friends in a place that holds so much history and our guests could not fail to be impressed by the size and scale of the house. The grounds Birdsall is set within were also a beautiful backdrop for our photographs and gave us the scope to put up a party tent - allowing our celebrations to continue on into the night. Having a Church on the estate made our wedding all the more meaningful for us and brought an added dimension to our day.

We had just what we wanted and Birdsall House will hold a special place in our hearts forever more!
