The best day of my life
From day one of viewing the venue, Minstrel Court shone for us. It is a beautiful mostly outdoor venue with multiple buildings including a marquee and the beautiful lake pavilion. The venue owner Dave was absolutely meticulous with the planning of our day and made sure that from start to finish it ran smoothly and he continually was asking us if there was anything else we needed. It was incredibly stressful planning our wedding during a pandemic but booking our venue and rearranging our date was not a stressful part because Dave was so quick to reply and keen to help in anyway that he could. I cannot believe that we finally had our day, the sun was shining and I cannot wait to receive our photographs of this beautiful venue.

The perfect day, the perfect venue
We got married at Minstrel Court in August 2019 - a stunningly beautiful venue with a relaxed country side vibe. Planning the wedding was very easy, Dave responds very promptly and will help with all ideas. We got ready on site and had the ceremony by the lake and the wedding breakfast in the barn - which is gorgeous! The food was delicious and completely customised. The grounds are so lovely and all our guests enjoyed being outside by the lake, relaxing on the grass on picnic blankets or playing some garden games, before DJ Bob started the dancing in the evening! It was the perfect day.
