Nothing but praise and thanks for the Delapre team!
We couldn't have chosen a better place and team to celebrate our special day. Everything from the first visit, the planning before the wedding, the amazing tasty menu, to the service on the actual day, was beyond our expectations. Delapre made our day so magical and special; they made us feel at home, welcomed, and loved at all times. The venue and surroundings are stunning, but the people who work there are what make the difference. They are truly fantastic and do their best to support you throughout the whole wedding journey. We can not recommend this place highly enough! If you want an unforgettable wedding day, this is the place!

I cannot express what an amazing day we had
I cannot express what an amazing day we had a Delapré Abbey! The whole day was perfect from beginning to end. Everything ran smoothly and I was relaxed on the day knowing that everything was being looked after by the events coordinator, Katie. Tom Hewer provided beautiful, bespoke food, which left the guests speechless. The actual building is a privilege to get married in and I loved having four rooms for the day. This meant that there were no awkward waits whilst the rooms were being reorganised and it also meant that you didn't need to be sat in a disco in the evening if you wanted a bit of peace. The location provided a beautiful backdrop for our photos too and we loved having outside space for the evening BBQ. I cannot recommend this venue enough for your special day and I am so grateful to the staff for making our day so memorable.
