Singing Waiters | Our Favourite Wedding Venues: Woodlands Hotel

Want to hear more from the singing waiters?

Welcome to the first in our new series of blog posts about the best wedding venues across Yorkshire. As well as the UK and beyond.

It is located in the beautiful village of Gildersome. This is in the countryside surrounding Leeds, The Woodlands Hotel is one of the best wedding venues in Yorkshire.

Our singing waiters first performed here back in 2017 and we were blown away by the venue’s beautiful interiors. In addition, it has gorgeous grounds and huge marquee, which is one of our favourite features. Not only is it beautifully decorated, but the shear amount of space means getting a conga started is never a problem!

Originally built in 1871 for a local textile mill owner, the impressive mansion house has been restored with a modern touch. Its charm runs throughout its 23 elegantly designed bedrooms and event spaces.

Oh, and the food is out of this world!

With a commitment to fresh, local and seasonal produce, The Woodlands serve up incredible modern British food. You can choose from their specially designed menus or you can create your very own to suit your tastes.

They also provide beautifully designed event spaces for corporate events, team building days and conferences. With the option of hosting your event within the hotel itself or in its incredible grounds, The Woodlands provide a refreshing alternative to your conventional conference space.

We are a recommended supplier for the venue and our singing waiters perform at their weddings and private events 2 to 3 times per month. Having worked closely with the venue for over three years, we have a fantastic relationship with the venue’s staff. From the general manager to wedding coordinators through to the brilliant serving staff. We also have a great relationship with the chefs. They are always happy to hold back the desserts for the sake of the performance!

Working closely with the team at any venue is so important. We all ultimately have the same goal. This is to ensure the bride, groom and wedding guests have a day to remember for years to come.

It’s lovely working alongside the same waiting staff time and time again. We have a built a great rapport with the whole team and love having the chance to catch up with them before the start of our ‘shift’.

We can’t wait to get our Singing Waiters back to the Woodlands Hotel after lockdown ends. It always feels like going back home when we work at The Woodlands. They 100% understand what we are there to do and they do all they can to ensure our performance works.

If anyone is looking for a venue in Leeds be sure to check this one out as we cannot recommend it enough! And to add the cherry on top, why not book your very own singing waiters to make your day even more special.
