Amazing in Every Way!
What else can we say about Thicket Priory other than the fact that it is amazing in every way! We spent the Friday afternoon and evening with our closest family and friends, followed by the most perfect Wedding Day the day after. The service we received from Anna and the team was fantastic. They are friendly, smiley and fun and their attention to detail was just amazing and didn’t go unnoticed by our guests who were all blown away by such a beautiful venue! Nothing was too much trouble and as a result we had a weekend that we’ll never forget. Thank you!
