The best venue for the most wonderful day!
Colehayes has been a dream. Their DIY style means you have to be a hands on kind of couple, which was just what we wanted. No package deals here and we loved it. We had the venue from Monday to Friday,(we got married on Wednesday) this allowed us to take our time setting up and taking all the decorations down again while also enjoying time with family and friends. It was a real community feeling. Amazing Ellice was only ever a quick email away and help heaps in the run up to the big day, while the lovely staff cooked up a storm for us and made everyone feel extremely welcome and well looked after. If we could, we would want to get married at Colehayes Park again.

Wow, wow, wow
Wow, wow, wow. What a truly magical and amazing venue. Totally private for you and your guests, however many you have! Drive through the gates and be transported to the wonderful world which can only be Colehayes. I have been to several weddings and this venue was by far the most show stopping. Beautiful gardens, stunning house, more than enough space, fabulous accommodation, great staff etc etc. Whatever you are looking for in a venue, you will definitely find it here. I can not recommend it enough. My only regret is that I didn’t know about Colehayes before our big day! I would have stopped looking at other venues the moment I viewed it!

Could not have been more perfect
We got married at Colehayes in August 2017 and it could not have been more perfect. As we had lots of friends and family coming from Australia we wanted somewhere that all the wedding guests could stay together for a week so everyone could get to know each other and it was BRILLIANT. We had so much fun all hanging out together, going for walks, preparing for the wedding and spending quality time together. Rebecca and Ellice are the friendliest, loveliest people and just make you feel so welcome and are so helpful. I can not recommend this place enough!!

Stunning location and beautiful house
We got married here a few years ago. Stunning location and beautiful house. Made for the perfect venue for a big celebration, enabling us to make the day our own, and do it all on a budget. Lots of fun had by all, our guests loved the weekend long party, with everyone staying onsite. Couldn't recommend highly enough if you want something unique, full of character and in a stunning setting. Colehayes were super helpful and accomodating throughout. Thanks guys! Will be back to visit soon.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Amy & Chris' wedding was one of our bests. They put on such an amazing festival wedding and thought about every detail. It was so fun and colourful. They had a rock band outside playing brit pop hits and everyone had so much fun dancing. Rozzy & Tom's wedding was also incredible. The couple and guests spent most of the weekend barefoot and swimming in the lake. They really made of the most of every space and feature Colehayes has to offer.

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

Delegate as many tasks as possible. It is worth spending time organising tasks for people than trying to do everything yourself and you'll find so many friends and family actually want to pitch in which adds a fun camaraderie to your special day and the lead up.

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

We had one wedding which was a celebration of their families weddings through the ages. They put photos of past family weddings up all around the house, had a lovely family tree on display and even made confetti out of tiny pictures of family weddings.
