Walking down the stairs to my fiancé was magical
We could not have asked for a more perfect venue for our wedding. From the moment we chose Leigh Court the staff were friendly, relaxed and so patient with all our questions! They made the lead up to our wedding as stress free as possible and added our decorations beautifully to their already stunning venue. Then throughout the day, the team along with the Berry Blue caterers made it an absolute dream come true and supported us in every step of the day, making sure we were relaxed and enjoying ourselves for every moment. We had so many guests compliment on the venue and the walk down the stairs to my fiancé was just absolutely magical. We cannot recommend Leigh Court for a wedding highly enough! Thank you!
