A dream!
From the day we decided to use Bedern Hall and the whole way through the process, Bedern Hall was everything we needed and more. Of course it is the most beautiful venue and backdrop but the staff and support was above and beyond. We always felt in safe hands. The day ran incredibly smooth and felt like a dream. We couldn't be more grateful. Thank you Bedern. <3

Thank you Bedern Hall, you made our wedding a day to remember
We used Bedern Hall as our wedding venue for our small intimate wedding this year. It was a beautiful place to get married and throughout the organising of the wedding, Elly (Hall Manager) was very responsive and accommodating. I absolutely love that Bedern Hall is such a hidden gem in the centre of York.
