Perfect Venue and Registrars

Beautiful venue and gardens for photos. Our registrars had the right balance of professionalism and humour to make the wedding ceremony one to remember. Thank you!

A A Wonderful Experience Working With York Housee

As a Celebrant and Wedding Planner I cannot recommend York House highly enough for their willingness to help, to listen and go 'the extra mile'. ALL their staff were an absolute pleasure to work with before, during and after my clients Wedding. The venue worked well and the grounds were stunning. Thanks also to Amelia for all her hard work

Brilliant Summer Wedding

We had the most amazing wedding at York House on 9 September. We booked most of the rooms in the House for our 150 daytime / 200 evening guest wedding on the hottest day of the year! York House was such a special wedding venue, and really is a brilliant find and incredibly underrated. Amelia was such a brilliant help - every step of the way she was a helping hand, guiding us through all the elements of the day. On the day itself, York House was absolutely beautiful, and we had the most amazing banquet hall set up in Clarendon Hall. We really could not recommend York House enough.

Beautiful venue with lovely staff and great organisation

From start to finish, the service was excellent. We were recommended the Winter garden which was beautiful (if a little hot because of the glass roof!)
The staff were polite and helpful. I cannot recommend enough.

Thai Nigerian Fusion Wedding Recption

We are local residents of Twickenham & attended the Wedding fair in March 2018. There were generous discounts so we signed up.
There was initial confusion of the wrong price list at the fair (The dates were to April 2018 and we were scheduled to get married in October 2018) But quickly resolved.
Website advised that should bring in external caterers and helpfully provided a list of caterers. As we are a Thai/Nigerian couple i was delighted to see such multicultural options.
York house were helpful, patient and contactable via email/phone. We primarily dealt with Leanne for the entire run up who was fantastic. Though people weren't always in the office, they did call back or email back most of the time. All our questions were answered & the venue was relatively flexible. Advised well in advance about deposits/ fees we would need to pay up front. York House were also flexible with site visits as long as we asked in advance. Visited the venue 3 times with caterers/Dj's before the event. We had our wedding reception here following our church wedding. We had hired a double-decker bus, it was able to park relatively close to the venue as it has a bay outside. Leanne kindly made a welcome sign for our visitors which added a lovely touch.
Our drinks reception was in the winter Garden. We had 130 people. People were able to spill into the gardens. You will need to hire the winter garden if you would like to have canapes outside.
We hired Clarendon hall for our main reception for 130 guests. it was excellent and well decorated. The sound system was fantastic and the space brilliant. We had a fantastic wedding reception here and could not recommend York house and the team more highly.

Beautiful venue

We got married in the Winter Gardens at York House in September - a beautiful, intimate venue that looks great both inside and out. Staff were helpful in the buildup and always happy to answer any questions, and Ross who was on hand during the day was brilliant in making sure everything ran perfectly. Would 100% recommend!

Summer wedding

We got married at York House in July and strongly recommend it as a venue. It's a great option for a London wedding that also provides a stately home and large garden and is reasonably priced. Our guests - local and international - were very impressed with the venue. We booked the Salon and Winter Garden for our ceremony and cocktail reception and had use of the terrace (an advantage in the warm weather). All of the staff at York House were great to deal with. Amelia helped to coordinate our event and was extremely helpful and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. Another advantage to booking York House is that it's dry hire which reduced the cost of catering and allowed us to select our own supplier. York House is a lovely venue that made our wedding memorable.

50th Birthday - Black tie event

I hosted my 50th Birthday with around 100 guests at York House, the venue was a delight - we had a string quartet for the meet and greet part in the winter garden & terrace, and had the main event in the Halls - Totally thrilled and couldn't recommend highly enough.

A Special Day at a Beautiful Venue

We had a beautiful wedding at York House in September. The venue looks lovely in all our pictures and guests were so impressed with the rooms. The Winter Garden was my favourite and should put compared to other rooms I鈥檇 seen. For an intimate small wedding this was perfect. Staff were all wonderful and the registrar stole the show. I鈥檇 recommend the venue to anyone, especially if on a budget.

York House - A really great wedding venue

We had our wedding and reception at York House on 10th June 2017 and could not have been happier with the way it went from start to finish. All the ladies at York House were fantastically helpful with the planning and Ross, the caretaker, was an absolute star. We would thoroughly recommend using the venue. We had the Winter Garden Room and the Salon which were perfect for the ceremony and reception. We didn't know much about the venue before we viewed it but were really glad we did. It's definitely worth going to look at if you are thinking of getting married in the Richmond area.

Completely inflexible on terms and conditions

The venue is good, particularly as there is no corkage and you can bring your own caterer. However, we had to pay for one hour extra to get the lighting man who York House recommended to come in the morning to set up. They were really strict with dropping off anything on the day of the wedding and refused to budge on any of our suggestions or changes. This made things, towards the end, really stressful and irritating.

Very inflexible terms and conditions

We paid over 拢2000 to hire the venue but were forced to pay for an extra hour for the lighting tech to come and set up on the morning of the wedding even though no one was using the room and the house was open. There also refused to budge on any of the suggestions we made, making thing stressful and irritating.

York House - the hidden gem

My husband and I were married in Molesey on the 28th May 2005 and held the reception at York House. The venue is very flexible and we were fortunate enough to host our reception after the extensive interior redecoration, so it was gleaming! We used the Salon and terrace for the initial cocktail reception, the clarendon for the wedding breakfast and then had the Hyde, Salon and octygon in the evening (the disco was in the hyde). One of the best things about the venue is that either inside and out you have a perfect location for photos, so you needn't get too concerned if it rains on the day.

It was very sunny on our day so we had a sting quartet on the terrace, which was great for guests who could enjoy their pimm's and watch the photos being taken. We provided our own drinks and bought outside caterers which was wonderful as we had total control and flexibility in having a day we wanted.

Everyone loved the venue, it really is a hidden gem, especially with the cost of a lot of venues in SW London. The staff at York House were very professional and really took pride in making sure that EVERY question was answered and we had what we needed to make the day a success. I wish I could post pictures as it really did look fabulous.

One of the best decisions we made!

York House is a beautiful French Chateau House with its own grounds set in the heart of Twickenham. It has its own car park which is free on Saturdays. We had our civil ceremony in the Salon which is a beautiful ornate room which can seat 70 people and our wedding reception in clarendon hall which can seat up to 200 for a sit down meal and evening reception.
But the most special thing about York House, is that you can bring your own caterers and supply your own drinks. This meant that you are not tied to an expensive package and charged a fortune for corkage. My guests can't stop talking about the venue.
