Outstanding wedding venue
I’ve been photographing weddings at Raven Hall for 16 years and it remains my favourite venue to visit. From the friendliest staff to the unrivalled views across the bay, from the delicious food to the elegant George III suite, it is without question the leading wedding venue on the Yorkshire coast. Staff are always polite, professional and kind, I have seen countless times that nothing is too much trouble - weddings at Raven Hall always run smoothly because of this and many of my couples comment on the staff, particularly Gemma and Ben. The views across the bay are magnificent especially on perfect summer days and for the sunsets. As well as photographing weddings at Raven Hall, I’ve visited many times for family meals and stayed overnight on several occasions and our experience has always been excellent: delicious food and the first class accommodation. I whole-heartedly recommend Raven Hall and urge any couples looking to get married to check out this outstanding venue.

Could not have asked for a better wedding venue
We had the most perfect wedding at Raven Hall and we cannot get over how helpful the staff and the whole Raven Hall team were, the food was simply superb, we’ve had many guests compliment the food and the venue itself. I haven’t heard a single complaint. All of the staff were extremely accommodating to our needs and requests. Even the days after our wedding the staff were so helpful asking how our day was and attending to our needs (we stayed a few extra nights after) Gemma and Ben could not do enough for us and any question we had they came back to us pretty quickly. On the wedding day Ben was incredible ensuring everyone was on time and there were no hiccups! Raven Hall will always be a huge part of our life especially after visiting here for the 11 years that we’ve been together and now getting married here.

Thank you
Thank you to all the staff at Raven Hall for making our daughter's wedding day extra special. Sarah and Darren White had the most amazing day and nothing was too much trouble for the staff at Raven hall. We can not thank you enough and would recommend you to other people. Special thanks to Ben Lambert for his very professional approach to all aspects of the wedding and his ability to keep cram a panicky mother of the bride.

Gemma and Ben have been amazing
We are a very lucky couple who won our wedding here! From day 1 and in the run up to the wedding Gemma and Ben have been amazing, always keeping us updated, offering help and advice and just generally checking that things were going to plan, Nothing was ever a problem. The day itself was absolutely amazing, it totally exceeded our already high expectations as a venue! Not only is it absolutely stunning inside and out, but the layout is fantastic. Ben, Julian and the rest of the team were brilliant throughout the day, the organisation and service is excellent, and the food was fantastic. So many of our wedding guests said it was the best venue they had been to. If we could give a 10 star rating we would! Thanks so much to everyone at Raven Hall for such an amazing wedding, a day and experience that we will never forget ❤️
