I felt like part of the Arley House 'family'
The girls at Arley were amazing from the booking process right through to the boxing up of the belongings the day after the wedding. They saw my vision and helped me turn it into a reality. The communication throughout was fantastic and the service on the day was brilliant. My guests were also very complimentary of the staff. I felt like a part of the Arley House 'family' by the time my wedding came around and still like to keep in touch.

Faultless
Arley House & Hayley our assigned planner are faultless. From our initial viewing to after the day was complete, everything was on point. Communication, understanding and plans. We had our whole day nailed down to the minute and they made everything so smooth. Every one of our guests only had good things to say about the day and that would not have been possible without Hayley and the Arley team.

The venue is just amazing!
I knew as soon as I set foot inside this venue that we were going to have our reception there. The team were amazing and went above and beyond from start to finish. On the day of the wedding they worked so hard to ensure we had the perfect day. And we certainly did. From drinks, to bar staff, to food, to serving staff, to wedding planners...everything was perfect. The venue is just amazing, immaculately kept.

The most fantastic 3 days!
Vicky Jones and the team at Arley made our wedding the most fantastic 3 days. They were friendly, professional and committed to making our day very special. The Arley team took a lot of stress out of the planning and it made for a much more enjoyable experience. They could not do enough for us and for someone who is a perfectionist, it was a very smooth process. They were also able to assist with other supplier recommendations. I would highly recommend them as the perfect wedding venue.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Winning the Best Venue (Countryside and Other in 2020 and 2021) for the West Midlands at The Wedding Industry Awards. Our first win was only 18 months after we opened the doors to Arley House. We have worked incredibly hard to give our couples the wedding they want rather than the wedding we tell them to have and it paid off, by then winning best wedding & events team of the year 2022.
