Beautiful venue, amazing owners, our dream day... Eventually
This venue is simply beautiful, as soon as we saw it we knew it was the one. Dawn & Sara are the loveliest people and nothing you ask is too much trouble. They have been so accommodating as we have had to change our date a few times and change other things for our wedding to go ahead and its never been an issue, we can't wait for our dream day at this amazing place, whenever that may be.

Best wedding fares and wedding experience so far
Dawn, Sara and the rest of the team are absolutely amazing. The wedding fares hosted there hold a variety of different stalls with so much info in helping you decide what’s best for your big day! When visiting cherished memories last year and deciding this was the venue of absolute dreams, Dawn showed me and my fiancé around and answered every question we had and being very accommodating to different things we are wanting. This year has been very difficult in wedding postponing, Sara has done an amazing job with managing all of this and even pencilled is a date in for next year before we had even asked to postpone. I can’t wait for our big day next year to finally come around and to be able to share it with the team x (Unsure as to why it won’t let me chose a date for next year)

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Our daughters wedding the atmosphere was fantastic there was such a relaxed feeling around us being in the open countryside, as the day turns to dusk the guests could sit and watch the glorious sunset as the night fell. The bride and groom and guests slept in glam pits underneath the night sky so romantic what a fabulous idea to end a fantastic day.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Try to limit the number of DIY projects you take on for your own wedding. While doing things yourself can help to save costs, I think sometimes we forget just how much work goes into them!” Think of the costs for someone to do the work and the brides time remember you do not want to be putting strain on the bride as the special day draws nearer.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Lovely baskets filled with packets of tissues with the bride and grooms name and the date of the wedding with a lovely verse " a tissue for tears of joy, tears of laughter, tears of happily ever after", plus boxes of confetti provided to all the guests on entering the church.
