August wedding
We had our wedding here in August and despite the weather not being completely on our side, we still had an amazing day. The staff were amazing and accommodating to everyone’s needs and made everything run so smoothly. The food and rooms were amazing and all our guests thought so too.

Really special to us
We had our wedding at KCC in June and cannot speak highly enough of all the staff. Julie and Roxanne were incredibly helpful throughout the planning process, both in the calls and face to face meetings we had, but also via email when it came to our many questions along the way. Leanne, Claudine, Tony and the team were fantastic over the weekend itself; enthusiastic and friendly. The food was delicious and of course the venue itself is beautiful.

We visited for the weekend to attend a wedding. The rooms were lovely & spotlessly clean. Our dog was given a very warm welcome & the staff couldn't do enough to help during our stay. The food was really good & the location is stunning.

Best wedding ever 12.08.2023
The 12th August 2023 really was the best day of out lives. From the moment we viewed the venue with Julie, we had our heart set. Julie and Roxanne were always on the end of the phone or email for me whenever I had any questions or sending over many updates! We hired the whole venue and rooms for our guests. We've heard nothing but praise, every room was clean, tidy, beautiful and some with gorgeous views. When the day arrived we had the hand of Claire helping the day run incredibly smoothly.

With our venue 2 and a half hours drive from our home, and organising a wedding with a 5 month old baby, our event coordinators Julie and Roxanne at KCC have been incredible, on hand to answer all of our (sometimes stupid and pennikity) questions! From always making us feel welcome when we come and visit, to providing us with recommended suppliers, they have been an absolute dream. Trust has been central to our wedding planning and we can not wait to celebrate our love and little family at KCC!
