Instantly wowed by its tranquillity and beauty!
Where do we start. On arriving at the beautiful setting of Larchfield Estate we were instantly wowed by its tranquillity and beauty! A stunning venue on the outside and fully matched on the inside! The guests loved it. All we kept hearing were lovely comments all night. The staff (Laura, Shan and Philip) were fantastic, so warm and friendly, as well as professional. We stayed in Myrtle the clamping truck for the quirkiness and wow, it was amazing! So comfortable (although the drink might have helped). We can’t express our thanks enough to you and we will be sure to come back again in the future.

Thank you all so much for giving us the best day of our lives.
We had dreamed of an Italian Wedding for years and due to covid, this couldn't happen. We found Larchfield and loved the venue. Every single thing about Larchfield, from the staff to the gardens, accommodation and overall experience completely exceeded our hopes. We both now agree that an Italian wedding could not have matched the magical day Larchfield provided. Thank you all so much for giving us the best day of our lives.

All so beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for for a relaxed and personal day
We can't thank the team at Larchfield enough! From our first visit we fell in love, the venue, grounds and accommodation are all beautiful and exactly what we had hoped for for a relaxed and personal day. We couldn't wait to share it with our friends and family. Planning a winter wedding we really liked the fact that the indoor space was so atmospheric and cosy, along with the amazing greenhouse which was great on a showery day so we could still enjoy the gardens. The whole team were so accommodating throughout the planning process, even with last minute changes due to covid and the many questions that we had. We would have been lost without Sarah who went above and beyond in helping to navigate the ever changing guidelines and was such a star at keeping us up to date. In an extremely stressful time for all the team you still managed to deliver a fantastic service and your communication with our vendors really took so much pressure of us. When the day arrived we, and our friends and family, were completely blown away. The piggery was such a beautiful space for our ceremony and the barn definitely was brought the 'wow' factor for the evening. Everyone (particularly the little guests) really made the most of the stunning outdoor space. In what was a strange time to say the least, Jim done a fantastic job at welcoming everyone to Larchfield and ensuring everyone felt comfortable throughout the day and everything ran so smoothly. All that we had planned with our amazing vendors came together so well, we had perfect day! Thank you all so much we had the best day and couldn't recommend Larchfield Estate highly enough. We would do it again tomorrow if we could and can't wait to get back to stay!

All in all one of the best locations for a wedding. Perfect.
I have to be honest in my review. I attended my neices wedding here and the setting for the ceremony was idyllic. The grounds are beautiful and good use has been made from the stables and buildings. It is completely contained so no "wedding crashers". The day was like a set for a film it was that perfect. The main house I am told featured in Marcella! Explore the gardens for a little bit of restbite from procedings. The staff were so attentive and polite. The craic with them was also 👍. All in all one of the best locations for a wedding. Perfect.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We are so lucky to have been able to help so many really lovely couples celebrate their wedding here at Larchfield Estate and love to see couples grinning from ear to ear as they say I do. From Emelie Sande singing at her friends wedding here, to circus skills greeting guests, hosting a wedding in deep snow (a freak storm, thank goodness for generators and snow ploughs!) to simple rustic flowers, home decorating the barn. It genuinely is a pleasure to live and work here and for our fantastic team to help each and every couple with their vision for their perfect day...

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

Go with your heart - and if set on a venue consider flexibility with dates, its the one day of your life you want to be just perfect! Oh and remember to take 10 minutes out just the two of you to say 'We're married' it's very surreal at the time!

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

A groom holding up a handmade sign saying 'Applause please' as he kissed his bride for the first time...
