The Setting

Your exclusive private country escape

There is nothing ordinary about Highfield House. Every detail of their beautiful venue has been lovingly crafted by their family team, and they take the same, bespoke approach to organising your wedding.

Highfield’s history began two centuries ago as a windmill, surrounded by 38 acres of grounds that spread from Driffield and across the Wolds.

The Vibe

They don’t do packages, they do build dreams.

From their first meeting with you, they take the time to tap into your imagination and really understand how you see your special day. They then work with you to transfer that vision from your mind’s eye into reality, creating an occasion full of memorable moments that you and your guests will treasure forever.

Couples have exclusive use of the house and grounds from their pre-wedding preparations to the ceremony itself, wedding breakfast, evening party, and first breakfast together. From welcoming your guests in their stunning Entrance Hall with its period stained glass windows; to the ceremony in the Great Hall with its vaulted ceiling and wrought iron chandeliers; and your wedding breakfast in the Drawing Room with its elegant carved ceilings and stunning open fireplace, which can be transformed into a dance floor in the evening. Then there is their cosy Library Bar snug, and comfy Palm Parlour for guests who choose to take a little time out from the festivities in a quieter corner. In fair weather, you can spill out into their idyllic patio and garden area, bordered by an array of beautiful trees and flowers, and a small stream, for lawn games or simply socialising in the outdoors. Younger guests are also catered for, with lawn games, picnic and dressing-up boxes, and play tents.

And when the shared celebrations are over, the couple can enjoy their first night in the secluded bliss of their beautiful bridal suite.

The venue is run by the Lampard family team, a lovely, friendly – if slightly quirky – bunch who stop at nothing to make your celebration incredible. They also work with a number of trusted suppliers, and can guide you on sourcing any aspect of your day, from catering to photography and flowers.
