Best wedding fares and wedding experience so far
Dawn, Sara and the rest of the team are absolutely amazing. The wedding fares hosted there hold a variety of different stalls with so much info in helping you decide what’s best for your big day! When visiting cherished memories last year and deciding this was the venue of absolute dreams, Dawn showed me and my fiancé around and answered every question we had and being very accommodating to different things we are wanting. This year has been very difficult in wedding postponing, Sara has done an amazing job with managing all of this and even pencilled is a date in for next year before we had even asked to postpone. I can’t wait for our big day next year to finally come around and to be able to share it with the team x (Unsure as to why it won’t let me chose a date for next year)

Best venue in East riding
I am a florist who has worked for brides and grooms at the venue cherished memories . I must say how welcoming Dawn and Ian are at their venue and so organised , nothing is too much trouble with endless cups of coffee and offers to help bring the flowers in .... they can't do enough to make sure everything runs smoothly and we are just the suppliers. Brides and grooms to be need not to stress with every little detail overseen by dawn from start to finish . The venue itself is truly stunning with endless views of the beautiful countryside in a very private setting .

CC Special Events Ltd
I have been in the special events industry for over 40 years, worked in every location imaginable all over the country and worked with many event organisers/wedding planners. Dawn and her team are a joy to work alongside, a unique location with stunning views of the East Riding. Every attention to detail is paid and nothing is too much trouble. Quite possibly the easiest person I have worked with. They have total respect for everyone who comes together to make an event individual and memorable.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Our daughters wedding the atmosphere was fantastic there was such a relaxed feeling around us being in the open countryside, as the day turns to dusk the guests could sit and watch the glorious sunset as the night fell. The bride and groom and guests slept in glam pits underneath the night sky so romantic what a fabulous idea to end a fantastic day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try to limit the number of DIY projects you take on for your own wedding. While doing things yourself can help to save costs, I think sometimes we forget just how much work goes into them!” Think of the costs for someone to do the work and the brides time remember you do not want to be putting strain on the bride as the special day draws nearer.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Lovely baskets filled with packets of tissues with the bride and grooms name and the date of the wedding with a lovely verse " a tissue for tears of joy, tears of laughter, tears of happily ever after", plus boxes of confetti provided to all the guests on entering the church.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
