After getting married at Whitby registry office we celebrated at Hetty & Betty with fish and chip afternoon teas. Although we were only a small group Lois and the team made it super special and I can’t thank them enough! The food was delicious and we’ll definitely be back for another fish and chip afternoon tea.

Lois and the team made our dream wedding come true. From the initial contact in June to our wedding day in August everything was smooth sailing.
We enquired with Hetty and Betty in June as our original venue had let us down, and with only 3 months to go we were in a panic about changing venues but Lois and the team were amazing. From the 2 meetings we had everything was arranged and organised. When we arrived the day before to set up everyone was on hand to help and make the ballroom look how we envisioned.
On our day when we arrived we were greeted with congratulations and a glass of bubbly, we were able to relax and enjoy the day as everything was taken care of by the staff. They couldn’t have done any more for us and our guests. They went above and beyond to make sure our guests and us had a great day, made beautiful memories and even provided us with some beautiful photos to look back on. The food was amazing – from fish and chip afternoon tea to the buffet it was impeccable.
Our wedding day did not turn out like we originally planned, it was 100% better and that was because of Hetty and Betty. It has become our favourite place to visit and we will be popping in every time we are in Whitby!
