10 Reason to Choose Thief Hall


The Views: One of the many reasons our couples choose Thief Hall for their wedding is our stunning views. You can see for miles across the Yorkshire countryside giving a perfect backdrop for any photos.


Sunsets: Even as the evening draws in on your wedding day, our views continue to complete the perfect photo moment and our sunsets pictures are one of the things we are most well-known for. We always try our best to make sure our couples get their own sunset shot and even our amazing bar staff keep an eye out for when the sun begins to set. Whether you’re having a summer or winter wedding you can be sure to get the most picturesque sunset photo against our incredible views.


Confetti Throw Pictures: The confetti throw is one of the most traditional features of any wedding and at Thief Hall we are no different. Our confetti throw takes place on our patio area and is the perfect way to lead out of your wedding ceremony and into your wedding reception. We’ll even have your welcome drinks ready and waiting after the confetti shot has taken place to continue to amp up your wedding celebrations. And to top it off you won’t have to worry about a single thing. Along with your photographer your wedding coordinator will help to guide your guests into place and make sure they have the confetti ready and waiting for you both to help the shot run as smoothly as possible.


Our Cottages: How can we make your wedding celebrations last even longer? We can offer accommodation for up to 40 of your guests! This means your guests can arrive with you the day before your wedding and can stay right through till the day after your wedding to continue the party. Our six cottages offer that luxury getaway for you and your guests as well as providing those homely little touches to make their stay even more comfortable. With four of the cottages offering their own private hot tubs and champagne welcome hampers included with all six of the cottages, we love to provide any extras we can for you and your guests. We even offer a pet friendly cottage if you have any furry visitors who wish to stay with us too!


No Rules: Our favourite saying here at Thief Hall; “The rules are there are no rules” and we well and truly stick to this. Our couples are free to do whatever they like with the venue, we give them the keys and let them run free without looking over their shoulder. We don’t have any noise restrictions or finish times so that the party can go as loud and as late as you want it to, and we’ll even clean up the mess the day after, so you don’t have to worry about it. If you want to bring in a bouncy castle, no problem! If you want to bring in your own food/drink, no problem! If you want to bring in donkeys, cattle or any other animal, no problem! We have seen it all and we still look forward to what our future weddings surprise us with.


We Love to Party: It hardly comes as a surprise, but did you know we LOVE a party! We encourage your wedding to turn into a full weekend long celebration and we try and help you with it every step of the way. We keep our bar prices as low as possible and fully stocked with our incredible bar staff providing you with drinks as long you need them. And after we’ve left for the night, you can still bring in your own drink and music and carry on the party as late as you want to!


Any Suppliers: We don’t have any restrictions and that includes no restrictions on suppliers. We don’t have a preferred supplier list so that you can hire whoever you like. This means you can put your own personal spin on your wedding and choose whichever caterer, musician, decorator, photographer, band or DJ you prefer.


Full Weekend: When we hand you the keys, they are yours for the entire weekend. The venue and all six cottages are yours to play with from the Friday you arrive right through to the Sunday when you guests leave. We may even throw in a surprise additional complimentary night’s stay here or there as well. This means you have from 10am on the Friday to decorate the venue however you’d like and then get yourselves comfortable in the cottages ready for your wedding day. Then following your wedding, the day after can be used to continue the celebrations. You could have a BBQ or play games out on the fields; we can even open up the bar again for you if that’s what you’d like. We want you to make the most of your wedding and we will help you to do so in whatever way we can!

Exclusive Use: Another reason our couples love Thief Hall is that we offer complete exclusive use. This means that the venue and all of the cottages are completely theirs for the full weekend. There’s no chance of running into another Bride on your big day or your wedding cake being mixed up with another couple’s wedding taking place at the venue. Here at Thief Hall, your wedding day is yours and yours alone to celebrate with your guests and you have our full undivided attention.

Exclusive Use


24/7 Support: While we might be a blank canvas venue with no rules, we still offer 24/7 support. We understand that weddings can be a stressful time so we will help our couples in any way we can. That includes answering emails, Facebook messages, Instagram DM’s at whatever time of day you need us so that you know your wedding is in safe hands. We are always open for you to pop in for a chat and we can sit with you to make sure all of your wedding details come together so that your wedding day will be as perfect as you dreamed it would be. And if that wasn’t enough, we hold regular open evenings for you to come and have another look round the venue and meet any of your suppliers you may have booked. We are also now running our Wedding Workshops to give you the chance to ask any questions you might have along with any other fellow Couples-To-Be just to give that added touch of support.
