We would like to thank you for helping us really have the perfect wedding day. The effort you all put in was amazing and the decorations, food and atmosphere was fantastic. Our friends and family have all commented on how beautiful Skitby is as how wonderful the food is.
We had our dream wedding day. From the first meeting to the day itself you were absolutely fantastic. All our guests commented on how amazing the food was and some still are talking about the canapes. Skitby is a stunning venue and it truly deserves recognition. We could not have asked for a more beautiful setting for our reception. We had the perfect day and cannot wait to come back soon.
Thank you for making our wedding day the most amazing day. From the very first meeting to the day you put us both at ease and nothing was a problem including the Caribbean theme. All of our guests have complimented how amazing all of the food was and how magical Skitby is. We have made friends for life with you all.
To Katherine and the staff, we can not thank you all enough for making our wedding day so special. Right from the start when we first went down to view Skitby House to leaving at the end of the night , Katherine and her staff were amazing. Katherine is both professional and knowledgeable. She can read her clients well as to their styles and needs. Any suggestions she makes are made with the intention of making your day the best it can possibly be. Arranging and communicating with her is easy and stress free. Keeping our secrets and surprises that both Claire and I had (and believe me we had a few!) and helping out to make sure when our surprises happened it all went well. The staff at Skitby House were all professional, attentive and friendly towards us and our guests making them feel at home. On the day, 21st September 2019, they truly pushed the boat out, serving drinks and beautiful food. Going around all our guests making sure they where all ok. I loved it when we made the train and had to tag people into ours and I tagged a few of the staff and they all said 'we can't as we are working' but yet with my cheeky smile and telling them it's my day so join in they all did helping me win the longest train haha. Our DJ, Simon Vogt (All Star Disco), also had a surprise of his own for us and when the glitter bomb went off it lifted the atmosphere to a whole new level. As Katherine came out to sweep it all up (health and safety and all that jazz), Claire took the brush off her (reluctantly she let it go) and I got one from the staff and everyone clapped and watched as we danced and tried to sweep the floor the roof was lifted with the cheers and laughter. Katherines face was a picture. I so hope Gavin Jacob Power (our Photographer) got!
The grounds around Skitby House are just perfect and picturesque for getting the photos for memories and for just getting 5 minutes time out. The building is beautiful and very pretty both inside and out. We highly recommend this as a venue for all occasions. P.S. Check out there Sunday lunches, mid week menu and teas! Their service and food is of the exact same high standard! Fabulous!!
My and my husband had the most amazing experience here celebrating our marriage. The venue is truly fantastic and all the staff equally as amazing, especially Katherine who helped us every step of the way organising our perfect day! Nothing was a bother, and me and the guests had such a fantastic day I can not thank you all enough! I couldn’t recommend anywhere else higher than I do Skitby! The sole reason my day went exactly as I dreamt it would
