I can confirm that everything you described when we came to see you last autumn, was exceeded in its delivery. I particularly appreciate the help I received from all the staff, from the three grounds / handy men, the catering staff and especially the catering Manager Ben. I thought him being in attendance on the day dressed in a suit discreetly overseeing and controlling every aspect of the proceedings, guaranteed the avoidance of any problems.
To me the most important thing, was that the Bride and Groom’s memory of their special day will always remain positive and very exciting. You, your location, the team, the food and service far exceed my expectations. For this I am very grateful.
Recommended for a magical, stress free wedding

Alex and I only looked at the Monastery first and already looking at the second venue just knew there was no need to look at anymore because nothing compared to it.
The beautiful setting and ability to have both our ceremony and reception in one place was the first positive (in a list of endless positives). We cannot thank the staff enough for everything they did before the wedding in helping us with any questions, right through to collecting our decorations after the wedding. Nothing we asked for was too much and they were so welcoming when we visited for preparation meetings. In particular Ben, who managed our wedding before during and after, was absolutely amazing. He helped us design a wedding menu that was bespoke to us and the wedding guests enjoyed a Turkish sharing banquet which a number of people commented as being the best wedding food they had every had. It was delicious!
The ceremony was perfect and the connections with Maggie at the local church meant we had the most wonderful time becoming husband and wife in front of our friends and family. The choir were brilliant, kindly learning songs from Sister Act for me to walk down the aisle and the pianist entertained us during the signing of the register.
The order of events ran so smoothly throughout the day that no one had any stresses and could enjoy the day.
We would recommend the Monastery to anyone who wants a magical, stress free, personal wedding! My only downside is that we can’t do it all over again!
Thank you to everyone involved in making our day so special!
Cannot recommend this place highly enough!
By Helen & Phil Depledge, on 26 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2017
This place has everything, great venue, stunning location & grounds, on site accommodation and the most helpful people working there. We were married here on 21st October 2017. Nothing was too much trouble for these guys - they even helped with the odd spot of baby sitting when we were setting up. They understood what we wanted from the start and certainly delivered. The food was amazing and served in such a way that everyone ate at the same time - no-one was left waiting. All the guests commented on how delicious it was and there was plenty to go around. Ben was an absolute star on the day, even meeting me with an umbrella to escort me down to the chapel....he confiscated my plastic bag though!! ?? The Great hall looked amazing on the day despite the weather and the accommodation was spot on too. It really did run like clockwork and we didn't have to worry about anything....the day just flowed. If anyone is looking for a quirky, stunning wedding venue then I can't recommend this place highly enough. It's already been suggested that we have a 10 year vow renewal so we can do it all again!! Thank you so much to everyone involved in making our day so fabulous and special.
Wow! What a day!
By Toby & Lucie Walsworth, on 21 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017
Everything went so well, the whole day ran very smoothly and this was all down to your team.
The Monastery is stunning - everybody commented on how amazing the venue and grounds were. Most guests never knew this gem existed and asked us how we knew about it. Some commented it was the best venue they had ever been to!
From start to finish the whole reason we fell in love with the Monastery was not only because of how simply stunning the venue is but also how personalised you can make your wedding day. We didn’t have to share with another wedding couple, we could completely make our own menu for the day and Ben was a great help doing this, we could also decide what food we wanted for the evening and the fact it is a complete blank canvas to be able to decorate exactly how you would like it!
The food was absolutely out of this world. Everybody commented on how gorgeous it was! Again many saying the food was the best they have ever had at a wedding! Not one thing was out of place, everyone was able to eat together and the food was served hot, well presented and without any mishaps or confusion.
We had a few requests for example power outside for our saxophonist and the VW camper photo booth – all provided on the day with no hassle making set up easy. Nothing was ever any trouble what so ever.
The bar was also fantastic - it’s not every day you get to choose what’s on behind the bar! Another personal touch we absolutely loved.
My husband and I couldn't of wished for a more perfect day.
A magical day that we will never forget!
By Danthe Hanson, on 26 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017
Adele did an equally amazing job when she took over from Toni during the night and ensured the night went just as smoothly as the day and seamlessly took care of all of the guests whilst they moved into another room whilst the band set up.
The hall was an absolutely brilliant room for the band, the sound was great and it went from a fabulous dining hall to an equally fabulous dance floor.
We had reservations about the ‘pop-up bar’ but it was great, it looked just like a real bar and the prices were very reasonable! The staff behind the bar were just as great as all of the other staff at the monastery.
All in all, we can’t think of anything that could have gone better on our special day, it was everything and more that we could have wished for on our wedding day.
We would recommend anybody looking for venues to take the time to look around Mirfield Monastery, it is an extremely special place.
Thank you all so much for a magical day that we will never forget!
Everything and more that we could have wished for!
By Danthe Hanson, on 26 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017
It is extremely difficult to put in to words how amazing the whole day was from start to finish. I went to school in Mirfield for 7 years and had no idea about this hidden treasure, it is truly a beautiful place.
We visited the Monastery about a month after getting engaged, it was the first and last venue we looked at as we knew it would be the perfect place for our wedding.
Ben was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole year with all of our questions and needs, especially in the weeks running up to the wedding when stress levels were high! Ben took so much of that stress off our shoulders and ensured along with his great team that the day went perfectly.
Toni was incredible, she not only saved the day with clear lip gloss but completely calmed both of our nerves right from the beginning of the day. So many of the guests commented on how amazing Toni was throughout the day helping the whole day to run smoothly.
The monastery is a beautiful building and the ceremony was just perfect, the grounds are just as perfect and we have some beautiful photos as a result. We loved the fact that we had free reign on the design of the hall, the opportunities are just endless. We were able to create a room that was perfect for us and our families.
The food was absolutely incredible, even two months later people are still commenting on the food! Ben and his team did a wonderful job, it was exactly what we wanted and during the year running up to the wedding we were able to chop and change the menu as we wished and this was no problem at all for Ben.
Everything was absolutely perfect
By Heather & Steve Broadhead, on 12 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Jul 2017
Thank you so much!
Everything was absolutely perfect on the day and before the day. Staff were exceptional (especially Maria) and couldn’t do more to help us.
The food was outstanding and many of our guest have commented that it was the best pie they’ve ever had!
Communication was great and attention to dietary requirements was fantastic so thank you for that.
Thank you so much for a fantastic day – we will definitely be recommending you for any upcoming weddings!
Our guests were in awe of our venue
By Mr & Mrs Hartley, on 26 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 10 Jun 2017
The flexibility that comes with having a wedding at the Monastery meant we could do / have exactly what we wanted and it sets you apart from all other venues visited.
Ben readily responded to emails and queries and made an exceptional job of putting us both at ease and reassuring us all would be ok.
Toni and the other waiting staff simply could not do enough for us from helping setting up the day before to clearing down on the Monday. Toni even went above & beyond by trying to sort out my flowers for the centre pieces which were not quite open.
Our guests were in awe of our venue and also commented how fantastic the food was and that the staff were fantastic. The main feedback we have received is that they could not do enough!
The wedding service Ben and his serving staff provide are second to none and quite simply I cannot recommend them high enough.
Sophie & Steve felt so blessed and privileged
By Malc Brown, Father of the Bride, on 26 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017
We wanted to thank you for the wonderful day on Saturday.
After all the planning and talking the day arrived and worked seamlessly.
You were wonderful hosts and we were made to feel very welcome.
The food was delicious; the serving staff were friendly and the venue itself was exceptional.
Deb & I were so pleased with the day, but more importantly, Sophie & Steve felt so blessed and privileged. Steve in particular had a day which far exceeded his expectations. What a great way to start married life.
Thank you for making our special day happen
By Sophie and Steven Sill, on 26 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 22 Apr 2017
Thank you so much to you, Ben and the staff for making our special day happen! We had a fab time.
Nothing was too big or too much trouble.
By Leanne & Chris Mallinson, on 26 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2016
Thank you for allowing us to have our wedding at the Resurrection!
The day went absolutely perfectly, the staff couldn't do enough for us especially Paul and Maria.
Leading up to our day I had the ability to email Ben when needed if I had any issues or just to double check anything. A month before the wedding we were able to call in and see Ben to finalise and go over everything for the day, with me emailing after this as well.
We found the team at the Resurrection were very accommodating to our requests and ideas for the day.
Nothing was too big or too much trouble.
The only thing we had a problem with on the day was the weather, which meant we couldn't have as many photos in the grounds as we would have liked therefore we could have done with an area inside that could have been used for photos.
Many thanks for your help
By Lucy and Pete, on 20 Jan 2016
Thank you very much for all your hard work and support throughout all the planning and the final big day. It was wonderful and everything we wanted it to be. The food was amazing - most of the guests we have spoken to since have said it was the best wedding meal they've had and absolutely loved the venue. Many thanks for helping us start our married life together.
