Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Jessica
We absolutely love what we do here, its such a passion we treat every wedding as if it was our own! For me personally from getting to know our couples over the space of a year or more during the planning process, to the moment they say 'I do' i don't just treat them as clients but as if they are family! We want everyone to remember their day forever and we will do all we can to make sure the memories they make are treasured for years and years to come!

Magic Autumn reception, you wont find a venue like this anywhere else
The Venue is stunning both in setting and the actual venue. The supplier list is much bigger than when we booked however it was hard enough to choose from the amazing suppliers that were available when we booked 3 years ago. We sat down with Annie who was so understanding and personable we were sold on the 1st visit. She is truly one in a million However all the packages were well out of our budget. Annie was able to bespoke us a package to fit our budget without it feeling cheap or us feeling as if we were 2nd class. She knows people and always through the process has her couples at heart and the forefront. She took the time to get to know us and we never had to question anything - she interpreted what we wanted and made the suggestions that we would never have thought of to make sure it was our special day - a true planner as opposed to just organising what we the couple thought we wanted. We were a little unfortunate in that part way through the 3 years the venue changed totally as did the packages, we were handed over to Jess as our planner and didn't really have much further contact with Annie. The initial meetings were a little awkward - I think from both sides it's never going to be easy taking over so far through. Jess is different to Annie and I think it took a while for us all to adjust to each other. I won't lie that there were times we were a little worried, However all that said when we got down to the final meetings it was clear that the day would run like clockwork. Jess doesn't leave anything to chance and had plenty of suggestions of her own that made a massive difference on the day. When we walked in the setup blew us both away - we had a picture in our mind of what it would look like, but nothing prepared us for the beautiful warm autumn themed venue ,not just the main room that greeted us. The flowers were incredible and the cake was spectacular - both the subject of much discussion through the event. The room was dressed beautifully The food was beautiful, and special platters were brought to the table places for those with allergies/dietary requirements which was a lovely touch. there was enough food that there was some spare to bring out for later in the evening. the staff were fantastic as a team, I would like to single out Jess especially as she not only made sure we were where we needed to be but also managed her team from the front, by example not the sides. We would recommend this venue 1000%

Our wedding day
We had our wedding here last month and we're still on cloud 9. Everything was perfect, we had the best day ever. The venue is stunning but the time and effort put in to personalise the decor was excellent and really set the scene for us. The food was outstanding and many of our guests commented on this. The day itself was incredibly well organised, we couldn't have asked for anything more. Jess was our coordinator and she really made it easy for us, as we were pretty clueless! I'm so glad we chose to hold our wedding here and would highly recommend it. It was also excellent value as so much was included. Thank you so much guys xx

Wedding day
My Wife and I had our magical day here. The staff were so friendly and Jess (our Wedding coordinator) was so helpful and accomodating all throughout the planning process which began a year before the wedding. My Wife has very specific dietary requirements that they accomodated to brilliantly along with some of our guests. The attention to detail was amazing and nothing was ever too much for them. The venue itself was absolutely stunning. From chandeliers to cushions it was beautifully decorated and a perfect location for our dream wedding. The venue offers fantastic packages and has great suppliers.

Wedding
We booked our Summer 2018 wedding in March 2016, and from the date of booking to the wedding day the whole team were amazing. We had Jess, as our in house planner, and she couldn't have done more for us. The venue itself, since its refurbishment is stunning, the outside ceremony area is beautiful with great views. We was able to use the whole venue, which gave a relaxed feeling to the day as our guest were able to do what they wanted. Food was excellent, the main meal and the buffet in the evening. Their recommended DJ was great, and really listened to the type of music we like. The most perfect venue, with great staff who genuinely want you to have the best wedding day.

Our wedding
We had our wedding here on 28th July 2018 and it was amazing. From start to finish the team were brilliant. Jess was always there when I had a question or a bridzilla moment and always with a smile. The team always listened to what we wanted and how we wanted it and the venue on the day looked absolutely stunning. It was everything we wanted and more. The food was amazing and received compliments from many guest and the staff dishing up the food were all very friendly and polite. I can't thank the venue enough for the support whilst planning our big day and again a massive thank you for it all. I would highly highly recommend this venue for any occasion.
