calling the chic couples: the wedding event at the highfield house, driffield

September 11th, 2018 | Julia Braime

PNE2019_BUN_HIGHFIELDHOUSE_OnlineFlyer560px

We’re so excited to be hosting our first wedding event at The Highfield House, Driffield, THIS SUNDAY 16th September 2018, 11am till 2pm, FREE ENTRY!

A fascinating new addition to the Yorkshire wedding scene, Highfield House invites couples to indulge and celebrate in lavishly styled surroundings, complete with exciting art and creative food and drink. Highfield House appears private and discrete from the outside but has a grand, exciting and memorable personality hiding within for couples to discover and explore.

As one of Yorkshire’s finest Grade II listed buildings, the striking Elizabethan styled Arts and Crafts home has a rich and varied history dating back to the early 1800s. It has served under many guises; from a windmill to a lavish country home, an Army base to a memorable country club. It has grown and shrunk, been re-imagined and remodelled.

Most recently, international designers Andy and Lindsey Lampard have refurbished each of its rooms in their beautiful style and contemporary standard of luxury to create a venue unlike any other.

This Sunday we are opening up the whole building for you to see, and adding 20+ of the area’s very loveliest wedding creatives too, to make sure that every finely tuned detail of your wedding is just as perfect as these finely tuned surroundings! It’s going to be such a gorgeous day and we can’t wait to welcome you.

Entry  is completely FREE for you and your whole party, and as well as our usual goody bag full of little treats from Brides Up North, including the BRAND NEW issue of UNVEILED Magazine, we also have 100 pairs of complimentary tickets for The National Wedding Show to give away to the first 100 registered brides to arrive! Bonus!

explore

Particularly well suited to fashion-conscious couples looking for a relaxed yet refined experience, Highfield’s interiors are unapologetically bold, stylish and luxurious. Available for exclusive full hire, whether celebrations are grand or intimate, the house boasts a variety of mesmerising rooms that can be used as couples wish.

The Grand Hall, a timber carved, vaulted and panelled room can seat 60 guests and house a band or string quartet from the secret minstrels’ gallery.

The ornately panelled Drawing Room has exquisitely decorated ceilings and is a beautiful space to present a civil ceremony, host a wedding breakfast or enjoy the evening entertainment with access out onto the terrace and lawns below.

The Evening Parlour can accommodate up to 60 guests. With its plaster moulded ceilings, panelled walls and elegant style it makes the perfect space to relax, hold speeches or intimately dine before the big day.

The Library Bar, Reception Hall and Galleries house art collections, antiques and curiosities and provide beautiful backdrop for the day’s orchestrations.

Outside the house is set within an exclusive, seven-acre oasis of natural beauty, comprising 250-year-old trees, entertaining lawns, manicured gardens, bridged weir and picturesque waterfalls, providing stunning backdrops for photographs. For larger parties, Highfield can arrange to accommodate a marquee or tipi within its grounds.

dine

Food and drink are two of Highfield House’s greatest passions and so couples can be sure of a memorable dining experience as part of their celebrations.

Highfield also has its own in-house bar team who specialise in bespoke cocktails, served and presented to perfection. Skilful mixologists will work with couples to create imaginative tipples and will stock the bar to individual tastes and requirements.

stay

Beyond a secret house door, couples will discover Highfield’s East Wing Apartment. Housing two-double bedrooms, the space is often used by the bride and her bridesmaids on the eve of the wedding, and is then prepared again for the newlyweds on their wedding night.

In line with the venue’s exceptional style, the apartment is decorated in rich velvets, stunning antiques and contemporary colours. Guests are encouraged to make themselves at home with Highfield’s team happy to facilitate additional requirements, such as arranging spa treatments from the comfort of the apartment on the wedding eve, through to a personal chef cooking for the bride and her party.

Where is Victoria Warehouse located?

freya says: Victoria Warehouse, a completely unique, entirely innovative event space based in Manchester. The venue, located in Trafford is just a short journey from the city centre and very easily accessible via motorway, rail and tram links.

Tell Brides Up North about the venue, what is its history and how has it changed over the years?

Built in the early 1900’s as predominantly a cotton storage facility, our warehouse buildings have stood as a symbol of this city’s industrial strength and innovation for around 100 years and careful renovations have made it a venue to capture the imagination.

What facilities does it have? 

A truly unique venue, with exposed walls, stone floors and a rustic feel, the simplicity of the space provides a blank canvas upon which you can design a spectacular setting for your day. The industrial pillars and original brickwork have been lovingly restored to reveal a striking backdrop across two rooms, that is ideal for both traditional and contemporary celebrations.

1

Is Victoria Warehouse licensed for civil ceremonies, and what rooms are available for the rest of the celebration?

We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies in The Bays and The Cotton Sheds.

The Bays is our versatile event space within the Victoria Warehouse Hotel. It provides a stunning backdrop for weddings, the raw industrial aesthetic is ideal for both contemporary and traditional ceremonies and due to the richly historic nature of our building. The Bays can hold ceremonies for up to 300 guests with dining for up to 250 guests. Evening receptions can increase to 300 guests across both Bay 1 and Bay 2

The Cotton Sheds combines a raw and urban backdrop (a setting inspired by the Industrial Revolution), with the glitz and glamour of your wedding. With exposed walls, stone floors and a rustic feel, the simplicity of the space provides a blank canvas upon which you can design a spectacular setting for your day. The Cotton Sheds can hold ceremonies for up to 1,500 guests with dining for up to 900 guests meaning its the perfect venue for large multi-cultural celebrations.

What makes Victoria Warehouse a special wedding venue and sets you apart from others?

At Victoria Warehouse, we are a wedding venue like no other. Our unique, entirely innovative and industrial event space gives our couples the chance to make their day a very memorable day to remember in years to come. Not only will they be able to produce and put together a wedding of a life time, but they will have a great team and all the right people who are able to help them and go above and beyond.

004

What sort of couple would love Victoria Warehouse?

Our brides and grooms at Victoria Warehouse are of course truly unique and so we encourage creativity as we help them along the way. Our couples are able to tune into the atmosphere and work with the different characteristics of the venue for every part of the celebration, we know that a Victoria Warehouse couple’s big day will be a day with a difference. Just like our slogan, ‘We are what you make us’ at Victoria Warehouse we are here to work with for our brides and grooms and offer an innovative setting for an incredible day.

How can your staff help to make the planning process easier and the big day amazing?

The wedding team at Victoria Warehouse are always happy to discuss your specific needs and preferences. Right from the initial enquiry down to the big day itself, we understand the importance of the occasion so are therefore here to manage the whole process according to your beliefs and traditions. We have trusted suppliers to recommend who are all experienced in working with us offering services to enhance chosen elements of your wedding.

Can guests stay over at your venue? 

We have our own hotel on site. From the outside, a solid Mancunian landmark, on the inside it’s an urban oasis of calm and comfort. Adorned with East Asian artisan trinkets and full of character, our unconventional hotel complements both the architecture and history of Victoria Warehouse and provides truly unique wedding photo opportunities for you and your guests. Our industrial chic style rooms celebrate the character and original features of the warehouse and are perfect for your wedding party to get ready on site or for your guests to stay overnight.

What is the feedback like from couples that have married at Victoria Warehouse?

We have received a great number of fantastic reviews, many giving compliments to the venue itself and testament to our staff who helped all the way from the very first enquiry. People love the mystery and historical base of the venue, and how much history has been preserved in modern, vintage and classy manner. Of course the nature of the building is quite different to the modern buildings, but that’s what gives us our edge and that pushes people to look beyond just the space given, because you really can and truly transform each room whichever way you want it.

‘Everyone at the Victoria Warehouse Hotel was absolutely perfect to a T. Everyone was so professional, accommodating, and kind. The guests were all saying how nice the staff were and I couldn’t have asked for a better team. If we were to do the wedding all over again we wouldn’t have changed a thing. Thank you Victoria Warehouse for making our wedding extra special. We are honoured and thrilled that we are the first wedding at the venue.’

‘We had so many comments on the venue, and especially the staff. Everyone fed back how amazing the staff were, how helpful and how they couldn’t do enough for the guests. I really appreciate how hard everyone worked and how lovely they all were. We also had loads of comments on the food – which was just brilliant!’

‘Thank you and your team for being so amazing. We cannot say enough good things. We received an overwhelming number of compliments about the venue and your staff’.
