Popular wedding venue Rise Hall located in Rise, near Beverley has been recognised as going the ‘extra mile’ for their couples during Covid-19.  The local business has been given this status during a nationwide goodwill campaign which launched this week to celebrate wedding venues from across the UK.

The 31 bedroom country house set in 30 acres is owned by Helen & Daniel Gill and dates back to 1820.

The venue has worked with couples to postpone their celebrations during the pandemic, finding new dates for affected couples, some of whom had been planning their weddings for 3 years. The temporary closure came just as a £250,000 refurbishment of the venue’s Orangery ballroom and north wing bedrooms had taken place.

Olivia Riddiford from / who founded the campaign says: “The wedding industry has been hard hit during Covid-19.  Wedding venues especially have been faced with challenging times from furloughing staff, continuing to finance high overheads and most importantly helping their 2020 couples.

So many venues have really showed such kindness at a time where couples have been forced to postpone their dream wedding.  It was important to create a campaign to celebrate these venues, to get their story heard.  Rise Hall has gone above and beyond for their clients by prioritising new dates for affected couples; freezing menu, drinks and bedroom prices, despite increased costs; and adding new services including a bedroom booking portal and a virtual venue tour. We’re delighted to have given the #extramilevenue title to such a worthy business”.

Helen Gill says: “We are absolutely thrilled to have been recognised as an extra mile venue.  Our wedding couples mean the world to us, and we are so glad to have been able to support them as much as we can during these difficult times. We are looking forward to being able to host weddings again soon and welcoming our couples and their guests to Rise Hall”.

Rise Hall was renovated by TV property expert Sarah Beeny and her husband Graham Swift and featured on Channel 4’s ‘Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare’. It was purchased in April 2019 by Helen & Daniel Gill, owners of award-winning catering company Dine, based in Leeds. Rise Hall caters for around 30 exclusive use weddings, events and parties each year.
