On the day it was run seamlessly by the team
From start to finish the team at Larchfield were more than accommodating, particularly during the difficult period with Covid. On the day it was run seamlessly by the team, everything flowed perfectly to the point we were humbled by the effort. For us, one of the main reasons for booking the venue was that we could do everything at the one place, including an outdoor ceremony and still get amazing photos taken. I genuinely hope some of our friends get married at Larchfield just so we can go back and experience it again.

Helped to make a pandemic wedding stress free
We can't thank you enough for all your help and support with our wedding. Wedding planning certainty wasn't an easy ride for us. We went from a wedding in Greece, to Belfast in May to October and then being left to frantically change venue 12 days before! However our first call with Laura was pleasant and very helpful. We visited an hour later and booked in. We actually couldn't imagine our wedding anywhere else now - things worked out well. Laura and Katherine couldn't of been more helpful on the day or during the run up. You really helped to make a pandemic wedding, somehow stress free. We had the best day and so did out guests.

So much more than we could have imagined!
This is the easiest review we have ever written because we cannot recommend Larchfield enough. We had our wedding booked for the end of March 2020 and from the moment we met in Sept 19 to view the venue, the entire team have been nothing short of fantastic! Their customer service is second to none, they are attentive and nothing is too much to ask of them. When lockdown happened and we had to postpone our wedding just 12 days beforehand, the team could not have been more supportive. We cannot imagine the pressures the last number of months have put on them as a business and as individuals but they never let it dampen their spirits. There were many stages we were unsure if our second date was going to go ahead due to guidelines etc but the team constantly reached out, were proactive getting in touch with updates and letting us know what they were doing behind the scenes (it was a lot!) Thankfully our wedding did go ahead in August and it was so much more than we could have imagined! The venue was beautiful and everything was so well organised with all suppliers, the measures put in place to ensure safety did not hinder the day in any way! Our guests had an amazing time and if you are planning a wedding or special event (or even a staycation, the accommodation and grounds are stunning) this is the venue and team for you! We look forward to seeing Larchfield hosting more happy occasions very soon! Ruth & Sam x

Amazing, even during a global pandemic
The team at Larchfield were absolutely amazing, even during a global pandemic. With so much uncertainty surrounding our original wedding plans. Sarah and Laura were truly superheroes and only a phone call if we needed reassurance or advice. Our wedding was truly a day to remember, 3 months later than we had originally planned for, however, it was worth the wait. Larchfield is truly a stunning venue, with a relaxed atmosphere. Each of our guests loved the day especially the children. So thank you to the team at Larchfield for everything. I'm sure you will be glad that David and I wont be on the phone everyday panicking about the new restrictions and what ifs. We had an absolutely perfect day and wouldn't do a thing differently. So thank you so so much to Sarah, Gavin, Laura and Hannah and the rest of the team, who made our wedding day magical. Thank you so much.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We are so lucky to have been able to help so many really lovely couples celebrate their wedding here at Larchfield Estate and love to see couples grinning from ear to ear as they say I do. From Emelie Sande singing at her friends wedding here, to circus skills greeting guests, hosting a wedding in deep snow (a freak storm, thank goodness for generators and snow ploughs!) to simple rustic flowers, home decorating the barn. It genuinely is a pleasure to live and work here and for our fantastic team to help each and every couple with their vision for their perfect day...
