Introducing Joy Hersey Todd – a highly recommended wedding planner.
Wendy and I were on a high all day. We had the most amazing, happy day, and literally all of our guests have said the same. It was the best day, and we can’t thank you enough for giving us these wonderful memories.
Zofia & Hugh’s Summer wedding at Wentworth Woodhouse. The grounds and grandeur of the building lent itself nicely to some truly wonderful wedding pictures – they were blessed with fine weather as well. Soft pastel blooms and metallic accents complimented the bold architecture of The Marble Saloon perfectly.
Meghan & Chris’s summer wedding at The Mansion in Roundhay, Leeds. They planned a church wedding with Meghan’s uncle, who is a Catholic priest, conducting the ceremony. They then razzed down to The Mansion in a vintage sports car together, to enjoy their wedding reception with family and friends; taking advantage of Roundhay park for their beautiful wedding pictures.
London based couple, Virginia & Tom, celebrated their elegant marquee wedding at Tom’s family home in Port Logan; the day was full of character, sentiment, laughter and the finest food, drink and entertainment. Read more…

Valentine’s themed Ambassadors’ dinner “three steps to your heart” menu, with the intention to delight our carefully selected guests.
We developed an indulgent menu, breaking the usual January rules of fasting, dieting and detox… because frankly none of that stuff is any fun at all!
Chef designed a menu fit for royalty, with elements of smoke (giving up smoking), chocolate and fine wines were paired with every dish (dry January – no alcohol).
This lovely couple came to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary with their children, in the place where it all began 50 years ago. We are all hopeless romantics at Dine, so on hearing their story we wanted to do something really special for this couple and decided to recreate their wedding menu from 1966, with a Dine twist!
Nicola & Richard first got in touch with Dine in January 2015; after their tour of Wentworth with Craig (Head of Events at Dine), they knew that this was the venue for them. In April 2015, they booked their wedding with Dine at Wentworth Woodhouse, and from that point forward we took care of the planning of their special day. In the midst of all the excitement of their engagement, they welcomed baby Isaac into the world – a fabulous start to 2015!
Laura and Alex chose to celebrate their special day with us at The Mansion in September this year. The mix of vintage pastels and soft grey colour palette complemented the setting perfectly. This was a day, like many of the weddings we host at The Mansion, charged with emotion and love for the beautiful couple. The Father of the Bride’s face on this occasion says it all….
In 1966, Clive & Angela celebrated their wedding at The Mansion in Roundhay. They recently returned to The Mansion and booked a table in The Garden Room, to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary; the lovely couple had their picture taken on the stair case, recreating memories from their special day – followed by lunch with their nearest and dearest.
Emma & Ben’s Marquee Wedding at Beck Bottom Farm was certainly one to remember! Matt (Dine MD) guided this lovely family through the journey of planning their dream wedding and delivered what was promised on the day. Another great example of the Dine difference…
Chloe & Richard’s stunning Marquee Wedding at the end of April. Read about how they created their perfect day here (you may recognise some of the details from our ‘Day in the life of a Dine Events Manager’ feature).
The sun was shining at #Wedstival16 last Sunday – a glorious way to start the day! Capesthorne Hall created a stunning backdrop to this event, the grounds and the hall itself is really very beautiful.
The best way to understand and appreciate a Dine event is to participate.
This is why I naively volunteered to work a wedding on Saturday 30/04/2016, honestly without fully understanding the undertaking… I was a slightly broken, but a very inspired woman by the end of the 17 hour shift.
This gorgeous couple celebrated their wedding at The Mansion in April 2015. Read about what made their day so special and their top tips for future Brides & Grooms….
We hold a monthly Ambassadors’ dinner at The Mansion, to showcase the exceptional level of service and menus we provide here at Dine. These are the highlights from the April, Spring themed dinner.
The Street Food Trend continues – we show how you can successfully incorporate your favourite food into your next event.
The street food trend that has been gaining momentum over the past few years shows no signs of stopping, with these often quirky little vans cropping up in all sorts of locations – parties, festivals and even high-end shopping malls. Last week the Dine team were thrilled when Gloria, a fabulous mint-green Vietnamese food van rolled up to The Mansion as part of a team food and wine tasting evening. As part of our arduous training (we take our work very seriously!) we got to taste some delicious healthy Vietnamese street food- the chicken satay mini baguette was a huge hit!
A lot of people don’t understand how vital an Event Manager’s role is throughout the planning process; the hours of detail that go into everything, from getting the timings right so that the couple have enough time with their photographer but aren’t late to welcome their evening guests, to being the only one in the building who knows how to tie a cravat, understanding a couples’ favourite menu or just making sure the Groom gets a stiff Whisky when the nerves finally kick in…
Back in November we were privileged to be a part of Claire and Craig’s Wedding, which they held at The Mansion. It was a brilliant day for so many reasons. Read their story here..
We have added some fabulous new marquee locations to our portfolio recently – from Bolton Abbey to the Lakeside at Carlton Towers, 2016 looks set to be the year for embracing the outdoors!
