A magical venue
We just celebrated our wedding at Moon Down and it was truly the best day. The venue has such a special feel, it’s beautiful, remote and private but also accessible for suppliers and guests. Lisa and Charles were so accommodating and helpful and we were able to create the exact day we wanted. Thank you so much Moon Down, we wish we could do it all over again!

Perfect English Country Garden Wedding...
Moon Down offered us a relaxed, romantic, rural wedding, where our reception just felt like a dream! I had a particular vision of having an English Country Garden style wedding and Moon Down offered us the canvas to create what we wanted and that was really important me. As a venue, it wasn't restricted or prescriptive, it offered us freedom and flexibility, which enabled us to make the whole day really personal to us. Lisa was amazing throughout the whole planning process and on the day, we couldn't have asked for better. Aside from the space and feel of the place, the practical side of Moon Down is on point too - great parking, good facilities and the opportunity to bring in fantastic local suppliers which made our day so bespoke to us. Just wish I could do it all again!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

Chloe's wedding was amazing - a real festival feel - the tipis were decorated so beautifully, they had a local Turkish restaurant provide the most amazing BBQ. The atmosphere was so relaxed and chilled.

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

You don't have to spend a lot of money to have beautiful, memorable wedding.
