Fabulous wedding!
We loved our special day. We both felt that it exceeded our expectations and the whole experience from start to finish was stress free. Emma and her team were very professional on the day and communication between us and the venue throughout was very good…all questions and queries were answered via email very quickly and at no point did we ever feel they were too busy to discuss anything. There was only positive comments from our guests and lots of compliments about how nice the food was. They managed to give us the day that we had hoped for….a chilled and fun day for everyone! Thank you Cantley 😊

Perfect Wedding Day!
We had our Wedding here in October, we had the most perfect day. The team at Cantley are so helpful, and honestly can't do enough. The setting here is absolutely stunning, we were lucky enough to get married on a sunny day, which meant using a lot of the outside space. One of the reasons we picked Cantley was because it's an all weather venue - the inside space is just as beautiful as the outside. So if you are someone thinking of getting married outside of our lovely English summer, Cantley is definitely a venue to consider. We loved being able to use the space directly outside the Barn and was great for our evening guests to chat but still feeling a part of the celebrations. Emma was our Wedding Coordinator, she was very helpful and helped me feel at ease during the stress of wedding planning! The whole team have set a high standard of customer service without feeling over the top and this is something we really appreciated on our special day. The Wedding day ran incredibly smoothly, with regular check ins from the team to ensure we were happy with everything. (Photograph Credit - Paige Mary Photography)

The Perfect Venue for our Wedding Day
We held our wedding at Cantley House Hotel in September and it was the perfect venue for our special day. We organised our wedding in less than 6 months and we could not have done it without the help and support of Sarah and her team at Cantley House. They did everything to make our wedding day run smoothly and free from stress, so we could truly relax and enjoy our Big Day. When we asked if we could add a Chinese tea ceremony to our wedding day a few months before, they were able to accommodate our special request. The sun shone brightly on our wedding day, despite the downpours that week. The team were able make our dream of an outdoor wedding come true, as they set up the ceremony outside on their beautiful grounds that very morning. Our reception and evening party were held in the Briar - a cosy and intimate barn setting. The food was great and good-sized portions too. Cantley House Hotel has 36 bedrooms so it was amazing that we had the whole venue to ourselves and our family and friends could comfortably stay overnight after the wedding. It was so lovely to be greeted by our wedding guest the morning after, as we all enjoyed breakfast together in the hotel restaurant, The Stables. We had the most wonderful wedding at Cantley House Hotel and made some unforgettable memories. We cannot thank Sarah and her team enough for helping make our wedding such a magical day.

Fabulous Wedding venue
We chose to hold our wedding at Cantley House Hotel, and couldn't have hoped for a more wonderful day. The venue is not only stunning, but also warm and welcoming. Emma and her amazing team made sure that our day went smoothly and without a hitch - nothing was too much trouble for them from start to finish. Accommodation is amazing, the house and grounds are beautiful, and the food was absolutely delicious. We wouldn't have changed a thing, and only wish we could do it all again!

Our perfect wedding
Our day went perfectly, from start to finish. We had 50 guests and it was an ideal number for the facilities. The drinks were on the beautiful lawns with a vintage singer I had booked. The reception in the briar was stunning, like a fairy tale with fairy lights, gypsophelia and roses we adorned the room with. The courtyard outside is so pretty at night, guests could use this area too. The food throughout our whole event was delicious, a comment we heard from many of our guests. Would 100% reccommend

The best day of our lives!
We can’t begin to thank everyone at Cantley House enough for how amazing our day was. The venue is so beautiful, we loved our outdoor ceremony and our reception in the barn was rustic and beautiful. From the original visit, planning, the day of and the post wedding, everything was amazing and we felt so well looked after. Emma, who ended up coordinating our wedding, was so amazing; so on the ball, organised and make us feel reassured that everything would go smoothly! They couldn’t do enough for us, first of all we were able to change the date of our wedding so easily, they also let us adapt the menu as we wanted something different and nothing was too much hassle! The day before the wedding I was able to leave all my things in a separate room to set up on the day. On the day of the wedding, everything ran so smoothly. We and all our guests were so happy with the venue and so many people commented on how amazing the food was!! We are so sad that our day is over but will definitely be back for another stay to celebrate an anniversary in the future! There is nothing more that we could have asked for, the venue completed exceeded our expectations! Thank you to the whole team for making our day incredible.
