    A day we will never forget

    Howsham Hall was the venue we chose for our wedding in July. From our initial viewing we were so impressed, not only by how magnificent the Hall was, but also by the professionalism of everyone we met from Dine. As well as ensuring everything on our wedding day ran seamlessly, the catering and hospitality the Dine team offered was second to none. We and our guests has the most amazing day, one we we never forget!

    Howsham Hall's reply:

Everything from your dress to your flowers was all stunning and the photos too are so magical!! We all send our best wished and enjoy married life! Rebecca and all the Dine Team x

    Couldn’t ask for a better day

    Craig, Natalie and the team are amazing. Nothing is too much hassle and they will guarantee you have a seamless and special day. We were concerned with covid issues, guests unable to attend and rearranging our date several times but Dine ensured we had the day we deserve and we loved every minute of it.
    We would 100% recommend Howsham Hall to all newly engaged couples looking for a venue. Our guests were stunned by the venue and wowed by the quality of the food!

    The best day of our lives

    Howsham Hall is a stately and exquisite rural setting with its formal gardens, lawns, river terrace, beautifully proportioned public rooms, in a court yard evening area.

    The guest rooms are lavish, quirky, imaginative and unique.

    The staff are friendly, helpful, thoughtful, professional and generous.

    The food is exquisite drawing the cuisines of a range of countries and cultures. Our own meal was a combination of vegetarian and vegan dishes all of which was met with the highest of compliments. The staff accommodated afternoon entertainment on the lawns with canapés and drinks, a formal dinner for over 80 and an evening event with DJ and live band as well as delicious food boxes for the evening guests without batting an eye lid.

    Howsham Hall and the Dine team provided us with everything we needed in terms of support, advice, care and service. We really can’t recommend them highly enough

    The Most Fabulous Day

    We just wanted to thank you sincerely for yours and all of your staff's hard work at the weekend. We truly had the most fabulous day, we couldn’t have wished for it to have gone better.

    Everybody loved the venue of course and the food was superb, but it was your exceptional level of service and attention to detail that really caught the eye. From the teams service on Friday evening to dinner on Saturday....they were excellent. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Personally, we really appreciated your little touches from the photocard and cheeseboard to my sisters extra portion of chips !

    Thank you again and of course we wouldn’t hesitate to write a recommendation or review.

    Wow

    Wow Craig

    Dine reallllly delivered!

    You and the team really wowed me and James with your devotion and professionalism to our day!!

    I’m so sorry I didn’t realise in the evening that you wouldn’t be there in the morning - I would have definitely told you that your amazing and gave you a thank you and farewell!

    I love the Polaroid card and of course the champagne and our personalised boards - those details didn’t go unnoticed and I love them! I have the photo in my office and it’s a memory I’ll treasure.

    We so appreciated the team accommodating our new veggie guest so last minute - we know she was really impressed and we are forever grateful!

    You smashed it Craig and team!

    All our thanks and admiration J&B.

    Magical Day

    Sorry it’s taken me a while to send this email but I just wanted to thank you for the most magical day. Literally everyone is still talking about it now saying it was the best wedding most people have ever been to.

    You literally were my right-hand guy all day. I cannot thank you enough for letting Tito be part of our day after a last minute let down & Thank you for being a dog minder, veil-fluffer & for rescuing me when it got caught, for changing plans last minute when we no longer wanted to be introduced down the stairs & me doing a last minute speech. Thank you for our lovely gift which we have taken full advantage of. Hope you have managed to see a few other of our wedding photos that I have tagged Howsham in, it truly was stunning with all the flowers & the day just flowed so lovely, just wish it didn’t go by so fast & wish we could do it all again.

    Many thanks
