We provided the marquee, furniture, toilets & generator for the first wedding for many years at The Highfield in Driffield. Joe and Katie were stuck for a wedding venue to site their marquee and we heard The Highfield were considering using the newly refurbished house for weddings. A couple of meetings later we had a very excited bride and groom. A few months later we erected a wonderful wedding marquee in a beautiful setting.
Highfield House is one of Yorkshire’s finest Grade II listed buildings.
The striking Elizabethan styled home has a rich and varied history which dates back to the early 1800’s. Having served under many guises – from a windmill to a lavish country home and from an Army base to a memorable country club. It has housed philanthropists, visionaries, villains and Aristocrats. This home has grown, shrunk, been re-imagined, remodeled and reformed. Famous architects, modern artists and film makers have penned, painted and publicized this spendid building.
Now, as the private home of the Lampard family, Highfield is preparing to reopen its doors for it’s latest inspiring chapter. For 12 days every year the house and grounds will be available to host your dream experience. Anything is possible and our House manager, with great discretion, is on hand to personally guide and assist with all of your individual requirements.
With walls of elaborately carved paneling and rich fabrics, with celings of intricate plaster-works and antique chandeliers and rooms of great and grand proportion, this home is once again waiting to be discovered and enjoyed in the way it has always intended.
In early 2017 the family will be happy to welcome wedding receptions, special birthdays and boutique events – to apply or inquire further please see the contact details below.
