The staff were fantastic
Had such an amazing day yesterday at our wedding at the Butley Priory. The staff were fantastic, the food was lovely and the atmosphere was so perfect. It’s everything we dreamt of and more. Couldn’t fault it whatsoever. Everything was seamless. It flowed so perfectly and we really loved every minute. The staff throughout the whole day were so attentive and helpful. It was truly wonderful ?? we loved every minute. Thank you so much!

What a day! Magical.
Butley priory is a really magical place for a wedding. We got married here in October, the south face Garden means the light was flooding and was beautiful, it also makes for a really grand yet homely feel in the evening with the fireplaces. It was truly enchanting. We can not praise or thank Emma at Butley enough, she was incredibly helpful, nothing was too much hassle and she was incredibly calm and organised on the day. It wouldn't have been as easy without her.

Such character, charm and charisma
Me and my husband were fortunate enough to celebrate our wedding day at this gorgeous place. Such character, charm and charisma, needless to say we had the most special day ever! Special thanks to Sarah, Clare and all the staff who helped to make it that much more perfect. We look forward to celebrating many more occasions there.

Instantly fell in love
Located in a beautiful, tranquil forest setting, Butley Priory is the most enchanting and romantic venue to hold a wedding. The rooms in the priory are stunning but also comfy, warm and inviting. My husband and I instantly fell in love with not only the look of the place but also the special feel it gives you. We booked our wedding day for 14 April (2018) and what a fabulous day it was! Everything was perfect - even the clement weather. The ceremony was held in the Great Hall and the atmosphere felt so intimate and relaxed. The room looked stunning, having been decorated with country flowers and candles! We loved the fact that we were permitted a free hand to decorate the rooms ourselves, although very little was required as the priory is very beautiful as it is. Photos and bubbly under a blue sky in the gardens full of sunny daffodils was followed by a marvellous wedding breakfast. Thank you to Paul the chef and all the catering staff who produced a delicious three course meal and dealt seamlessly with the various dietary requirements. Our guests praised the meal and said it was the best food they had ever been served at a wedding. Clare and Sarah had great organisational skills leading up to the wedding and everything was sorted with very little fuss. Thank you also to Emma who worked tirelessly on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly.....which it did! You cannot help but fall in love with Butley Priory. It is seeped in history, has the most extraordinary architecture with soaring ceilings, open fireplaces and quirky nooks and crannies. It is truly a most charming, intimate and romantic venue for a wedding. I would thoroughly recommend this venue.
