The View
We had a perfect day having our ceremony and evening reception at Raven Hall. The location was a long way for everyone to come, but all agreed that it was well worth it for the view One of the reasons we wanted to get married here was for an outdoor ceremony, however the big selling point for us was that if we didn’t get the weather the alternative indoor ceremony area was incredibly beautiful too The staff on the day were fantastic, they made sure we didn’t have to worry about anything. In particular a number of our guests commented on how brilliant Daniel was at running the evening reception Planning the wedding was incredibly straight forward, with the sales and admin teams responding to any queries we had very quickly Thanks for everything Gemma!

Our Wedding
I just would like to firstly say a great big thank you to Ben for helping me on the wedding day it was planned perfectly and ran so smoothly. Also you are great at helping ensure everyone feels comfortable and at ease, you fanned my train to ensure my dress could be seen, you helped my grandad with his concerns and organised everyone to. So I thank you Ben for helping take the stress out of my day and making it feel relaxed and perfect. The food was absolutely delicious, the food came out hot, perfectly cooked, and efficiently. Every guest commented on how perfect the food was, “best food they ever had at a wedding”, “hot, even ours and we were on the last table” and “perfect food”. The venue is just so wonderful to, from the ceremony to the gardens/battlements and views and also the George room. Myself and martin had the best day of our life’s and we thank you for making the day so special, relaxed and organised. Thank you.

My Raven Hall Wedding
Perfect- that is the only way to describe our wedding day. We chose Raven Hall Hotel because of its amazing location; stunning views; the lodges which we hired for our family and friends and the wonderful Great Hall which looks magical when lit with all its fairy lights. At the time of booking we knew little of the team that were tasked with making our wedding day wishes come true. We were not disappointed! In the build up to the ‘big day’ we had great/prompt communication with Ben the wedding coordinator and the rest of the team to ensure our (sometimes very precise and individual) plans were possible and any questions we had were always answered quickly. On the day the team made sure everything ran smoothly. The staff were friendly and attentive, always checking everything was ok but equally not intrusive. The perfect balance. We had our wedding breakfast in the fantastic setting of the restaurant which enjoys panoramic views towards Robin Hoods Bay. The meal was excellent. Some of our guests had a variety of dietary requirements which were easily accommodated without any problem or awkwardness. We would particularly like to thank Gemma, Ben, Amy and Julian for making our whole wedding experience so stress free.

An amazing day!
We celebrated our wedding at Raven Hall on Friday 11th June 2021 Due to lockdown and living out of the area, we only visited the hotel once prior to our wedding. This could have proved to be really difficult, instead with the help and support of Gemma, Amy & Ben we arrived at the hotel with the confidence that all arrangements and timings were in place and our plans for the day would be followed exactly as we wanted them to be. Nothing was too much trouble for Ben and even though we had to make some last minute alterations the day still went exactly to plan. Ben was available all through the day for us and he and his team made sure that not only us but all our guests had an amazing day

I knew the moment we went to visit Raven hall
I knew the moment we went to visit Raven hall it was the place we would get married the views speak for themselves, every part of this venue is picture perfect. We got married May 30th 21 with 30 guests and we cannot thank all the staff enough. Throughout ever changing regulations Gemma, Ben and their team communicated with us every step of the way to make sure we got the day we had been planning! Our day was amazing from start to end we wanted a laid back stress free day, and it was Ben was our master of ceremonies for the day, he and Julian were always available and couldn’t do enough for us. The food was beautiful, your chef and his team did a wonderful job! All the staff were polite from the minute we walked into the hotel they are a credit to you. Again we want to thank all of you for such a wonderful day.

Staff are always polite, professional and kind
Ive 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.
