My perfect day
The venue & in particular our wedding coordinator couldn’t have been more accommodating in helping us achieve the informal relaxed party we wanted to achieve for our wedding . The positive feedback I’ve continued to have from my guests some 6 months on confirms my own positive view with many having enjoyed it so much they’ve asked if we can do it all again next year!

Best day ever!! Magical
I wouldn’t know where to start regarding our wedding day. It really was the best day ever! Myself and my husband got married on December 27th 2017 at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. From the moment we went to the open day the staff were amazing and answered all of my silly and sometimes crazy questions/ideas and made us feel at ease. They even let me have real reindeer on the grounds which I had organised through a local charity! On the day they really did make us feel so special and kept checking everything was how we wanted and that we were okay throughout the day. I really didn’t want the day to ever end and I can’t fault any part of our special day. The food, the staff, the location. Everything was perfect!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Beautiful day loved by us and all of our guests
The most amazing day!! Half of our guests are from abroad and they all loved experiencing a beautiful English country wedding at the Moat House. Many stayed overnight as well and they still go on about how beautiful it all was over 2 years down the line. Loved that they put up my national flag on their flagpole for our day too ❤️
