    Perfect Venue for a Perfect Day!

    Our wedding event at The Oakwood at Ryther was nothing short of perfect! From our first contact with Janine and Ian at a Wedding Fair in York when they were just setting up their business, to the dream team working at the venue on the day. The team here work excellently together.
    We are so thankful that Simon was there, keeping things on time and interacting with guests. Our guests loved finding out more about the venue on the day from him.
    Becky is a star! Nothing was ever too much hassle and she answered all our questions in the lead up to the wedding promptly. During the time we were on site she was on hand to deal with any last minute things that came up, liaise with our suppliers and keep the day moving on smoothly. She checked in with both of us throughout the wedding day, but she was never intrusive.
    The rest of The Oakwood team from the bar staff to the cleaners were also polite and friendly to deal with.
    The venue itself is stunning, and our guests continue to comment on how wonderful the buildings, interiors and setting was. We loved the on-site accommodation for our closest friends and family, which was spacious and clean. It felt like a home away from home for the time that we were there.
    Thank you again to everyone at The Oakwood, we are still awe-struck by the perfection of the day! x
