Dine acquires Yorkshire stately home from TV's Sarah Beeny to convert into wedding venue

Events and catering company Dine has acquired a Grade II-listed, stately home in Yorkshire from TV property expert Sarah Beeny and converted it into a luxury wedding and private hire venue.

Dine founders Daniel and Helen Gill purchased Rise Hall in Beverley for £1.6m six months ago and will invest more than half a million pounds in its restoration.

Works already completed include the creation of a new bridal suite, the refurbishment of the property's orangery, restoration of the library and the installation of modern heating and internet services.

Daniel said: "In restoring a near ruin to its former glories, Sarah created a terrific legacy, but also set us a huge challenge; taking Rise Hall to the next level by making it one of the world's finest luxury wedding and private hire venues – and Yorkshire's largest for private hire.

"Our mission is to create an unforgettable, unique experience, without any compromise, for every occasion. To do this, we must lead a constantly evolving market – both staying abreast of trends challenging our own ideas, while delivering reassuring, high-end constants."

Annual maintenance costs for the 97-room mansion are predicted to be £213,000. Helen added: "It really is like painting the Forth Railway Bridge – if we were ever to reach a point of completion, it would be time to start all over again!"

The hall is now open for weddings, corporate events and private hire functions.
