Thai Nigerian Fusion Wedding Recption
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.

York House - the hidden gem
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!
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.
