Thank you for making our wedding so special
Thank you so much for making our wedding so special. Everyone loved the venue and said how good the food was. The whole team made the day run so smoothly so we could just enjoy ourselves and time with our guests. The DJ was great at keeping everyone happy on the dance floor! We also love the teddy and it is a very thoughtful keepsake and I’m excited to come back for afternoon tea!

A huge thank you to you and all the staff
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and all the staff that made our wedding day last Saturday so perfect. The Abbey looked beautiful, and you made us and our guests feel so welcome from the minute we arrived, The food was outstanding from the canapés, the meal itself, the BBQ and then breakfast the following day. We had so many comments saying how lovely the food was. The young people who were waitressing or serving at the bar were so friendly and attentive making the atmosphere so calm and relaxed. Stuart and I had the best day, ( the weather helped) but we do want to say a huge thank you to yourself and the whole team for making it so. We don’t know how smoothly things ran behind the scenes and if there were any hiccups, we never knew. We chose the Abbey on line during lockdown not having been around it or tasting any of the food, but we’re so glad we did as it was perfect! Please pass on our thanks and appreciation to everyone involved, it was truly amazing.

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We had one particular wedding, where the bride's father and grandfather owned a steam engine which they brought down to the Abbey and used it for the couples wedding photos. The bride also wore her mother's wedding dress and combined with the history of her father's steam engine this made the wedding extra special and unique.
