We have been in the wedding industry for 10 years and have a wealth of knowledge, contacts and experience - which we will use to guide you through the planning and run up to your wedding and be on site to ensure everything runs smoothly when it comes to the BIG day. However, we understand that it's your BIG day and you want to have it your way so we leave it up to you as to how much input we at the Old School House have. Laura has a diploma in wedding planning and event management so can guide you through all the steps and be here for you all the way up to the BIG day.
At the Old School House you have the option to do it yourself - arranging caterers, outside toilets, decorations, furniture or you can leave it up to us to take care of all of this with a tailor made package - taking away the stress so you can relax and enjoy the run up to your wedding without the hassle of planning every detail.
We have a licensed bar on site and drinks are very reasonably priced. [ Click Here To View Sample Price List ] Of course if you would like to provide some drinks of your own for the welcome, wedding breakfast and toast drinks then this is fine with us - please contact us to go through the arrangements.
Prosecco and canapes served from the restored VW camper van outside in the grounds giving an opportunity for fabulous photos with The Old School House and surrounding Yorkshire country side as the perfect back drop.
Guests are free to relax in the garden and in the entrance hall and bar area where a live pianist will entertain until the school bell is rung by the bride or groom, (or both ! ) calling your guests into the Old School Room for an intimate dinner to be served, along with speeches and toast to the new couple.
After a scrumptuous meal as a school dinner guests are invited to mingle in the bar and reception area or outside in fair weather and enjoy the Old School games ..... Then, at about 7pm the party gets started in The Old School room with our lighting and sound equipment along with resident DJ.
The Old School House is perfect for small intimate winter weddings with the large open fire in the Old School Room and cosy surroundings make a truly atmospheric setting for a winter wedding. We can accommodate 40 guests in our intimate surroundings - with everything under one roof and of course the possibility of photos outside. (Weather Permitting).
Packages can be arranged including a ceremony on site, canapes and welcome drink, 3 course wedding breakfast, wine during meal and toast drink. We can also provide transport to and from Wetherby town centre or York city centre. Parking on site is limited.
To respect the peace and quiet of the countryside and our surrounding neighbours, the music is turned down at 11pm. The bar will continue to serve until 11.45 and then school finishes at midnight.
We are a husband and wife team who have been in the wedding industry in both bar hire and wedding planning for the past 10 years.
