The day was perfect for us...
We cannot thank you enough for making our day so special – from start to finish you have all been so helpful and relaxed. The day was perfect for us and you all worked so hard to ensure it ran seamlessly. Eloise, thank you for being so positive, smiley and helpful – even at 2am when I am sure you would rather have been tucked up in bed! Thank you so much.

We were able to realise our vision...
A massive thank you for hosting our wedding. We were able to realise our vision of a relaxed, laid-back, crazy day with all of our loved ones. To sum up how we feel; we felt like Monkton was our home and we’d invited all our friends and family for an impromptu house party. Eloise in particular, was exceptional on the day and no task was too much trouble. She even managed to make a highly strung bride feel calm. Amazing food from Mel and OF COURSE, the irreplaceable Peter. Thank you all.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

A civil ceremony in the barn, then across to the meadown for a village-fete styled reception with garden games, canapés and a saxophonist. This was followed by an Italian-themed marquee wedding breakfast. In the evening, a total of 140 guests returned to the meadow for a full-on festival themed party, including a big top marquee and staging for not just one, but 4 bands who performed over the course of the night! The event finished with fabulous fireworks, camping/glamping - and for our campers; a hearty breakfast the following morning! It was a truly brilliant and fun event to be part of.
