Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?
It would be impossible to single out one wedding! We work incredibly hard to ensure that every couple feels like the first couple to be wed at the Priory and that it is special and personal to them so they are all different in their own way!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get your venue and your date booked first. So many other details will naturally fall into place once this is decided that it will make it a lot easier to make decisions.
What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?
Our couples receive exclusive use of the entire house and it is always lovely when they really take over and make it their home for the day. Family photos on the window sills and mantle piece and guests wandering and relaxing at their leisure throughout the day.
Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.
Breath taking, Rural, Exclusive, Comfortable, Magical
Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?
The Tower is such a photographers favourite! Adjacent to the main house and the inner courtyard, you can capture stunning photos dawn, day, dusk and night!
Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?
Many a time but sadly we have to keep the who and the when to ourselves!
What’s your favourite canapé?
Our office team debate this regularly but as I'm the one on the keyboard it has to be..... chocolate dipped strawberries dressed like mini Brides and Grooms!
What’s your favourite midnight treat?
Bacon baps without a doubt.
What is your venue's most unique feature?
Probably the fact that we allow our couples to actually use the house all day and overnight. We don't actually permit a marquee so couples and their guests can enjoy their very own Tudor manor house for a day.
What part of your business are you most proud of?
We are all about the weddings. We haven't deviated into events or conferences, for 26 years we have 100% focused on making ourselves the wedding experts.
