Beautiful venue, wonderful staff

We had a great wedding day and so much of that was down to the Left Bank -- the beautiful venue itself and the fantastic crew, from the staff helping out on the day (who were so professional and friendly and helpful), to the outstanding venue manager, Sarah Walker, who was so enthusiastic and supportive throughout our experience, it was a treat to work with her. I could list so many truly brilliant things that were vital in making our day lovely and memorable, but we'd be here quite some time. So I'll just say we're rather chuffed with ourselves for our most excellent choice of venue, and we'll always hold a special place in our hearts for the Left Bank and her crew!

We knew as soon as we stepped through the door!

From day one Sarah and the team at Left Bank were absolutely brilliant. As soon as we stepped in the building we knew we wanted to get married there. It's a beautiful venue made even better by the wonderful support and organisation provided by the staff. They did so much for us and made planning our wedding so much easier. Our guests all commented on how stunning Left Bank is. Can't recommend highly enough.

Thoroughly recommended!

My husband and I had our afternoon wedding reception at Leftbank in December 2018 and can honestly say it was the most amazing venue. Leading up to the wedding, Sarah Walker (wedding coordinator) met with us regularly so we felt thoroughly briefed about how the day would run. She responded to emails quickly, did her best to accommodate special requests and had the perfect balance between professional events manager & warm hearted person we’d probably like to go for a drink with! On the day itself, Sarah and her staff worked tirelessly to make sure everything ran like clockwork. Nothing was too big or too small. It’s a great venue and we’d thoroughly recommend it.

So glad we chose Left Bank

What an amazing venue! We had the evening part of our wedding here and we are so glad that we chose it. The space is amazing and the staff are wonderful - highly organised, professional, friendly and efficient. Special thanks in particular to Sarah and Esme for their efforts. We wanted a very personal wedding and they went out of their way to make our vision happen. We had such a wonderful day and our guests absolutely loved the venue. Everything was set up and decorated exactly how we wanted it and it looked fantastic. The logistics went so smoothly, which was a huge load off both of our minds. Finally, we were particularly appreciative of the way in which they took extra care to look out for Sarah's dad who was recovering from cancer treatment at the time. All staff were very attentive to him and his needs, which made the evening much more enjoyable and relaxing for him and for the whole family. Overall, we couldn't recommend this venue more highly.

Just book it!

Had our wedding here in July 2018. Couldn't recommend them enough - Sarah, Esme and the whole team made sure the day went exactly to plan. The venue is an amazing space, we brought some of our own decorations and the guys made it look even more awesome than we were expecting. Celebrations went long into the night! Most of our friends and family didn't even know this place existed, and neither did we until we stumbled on it whilst looking for venues. Don't hesitate, book your wedding here!

Gorgeous hidden gem

I'd describe Left Bank Leeds as a hidden gem, with a definite surprise and wow factor when you walk in from the road. Our guests were amazed at how stunning our venue was and several commented saying it's the best wedding they had ever been to!

One of the perks about this venue is that it can be personalised as much or as little as you want. We had the freedom to explore different caterers and pick exactly what we like. The extensive space meant we were also able to hire soft play for the children to play in the same room, but away from the dining tables. And many other extras such as A DJ, LOVE lights and a magic mirror photo booth which all looked amazing side by side and meant no one had to leave the room.

Nothing was too much trouble for all the staff and during every part of the process, from the wedding open day, to wine tasting and on the evening itself everyone was so helpful, friendly and couldn't do enough for us. I'd highly recommend having a wedding at Left Bank Leeds. You will not be disappointed!

Thank you to all the staff for making it such a special day for us!

Thank you so much!

We had our wedding breakfast and evening do here, and would just like to thank the staff at Left Bank Leeds for all of their help in making what was an amazing day for me and Jemma. So many stresses on the day were alleviated and their help in setting up, the service and everything else inbetween that went in to the day will not be forgotten. So many of our guests commented on what a beautiful venue it is. We will be back for all of the beer and food festivals and many of the other events that go on in this amazing place.

We had the best day of our lives celebrating our wedding at Left Bank Leeds. We loved the venue, as did all our guests. It was amazing to dance and party in a former church. We will never forget this day and Left Bank Leeds. A special thanks to our awesome wedding planner Sarah!

Utterly Amazing

The friendly staff at Left Bank Leeds, especially Esme and Sarah, made it all so easy. The venue was jaw-dropping anyway, even when it wasn’t decorated for our wedding day. Our guests all commented on what an amazing venue it was. We had a fab party. The band we hired sounded stupendous in this incredible space. Can’t thank Left Bank enough. We’ll return to this fab venue many, many times and cherish the great memories it helped to provide. Thanks!
