Most amazing day!
Beautiful venue. I knew from the moment I walked in that it was perfect! Amazing staff on the day and during the run up to the big day. For the venue, in comparison to other venues we looked at, the price was decent too!

We had the most wonderful experience from start to finish. Tom and Aimee were amazing throughout the booking and organising process then Sarah and Lynn (Lynn especially) on the day were incredible. We had a few hiccups with the cake and make up overrunning which left me panicking but Lynne was always on hand with some reassuring words and a hug. I later found out too she had helped the Groom to remain calm too and nothing ever seemed to much trouble. We have nothing but praise for the team there

All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful from the very beginning and whenever I needed any information at all they were extremely quick to respond and make my wedding planning much easier. Thank you to all of the staff at Hylands House who made our day perfect.
