Loved every minute of their wedding day.
Many thanks to all the Paintworks team that made my son and daughter-in-law's wedding so special last Thursday. This was their third attempt over the past 16 months and at last it happened. Your staff were attentive and friendly, the venue perfect and Tom and Laura loved every minute of their wedding day.

Best day of our lives!
The wedding was absolutely amazing.... we couldn't have dreamt of a better day. We got so many comments from our guests about how beautiful the venue looked. We can't thank Eider, Fay and Jess enough for all the help with the planning and for making the day run seamlessly. It was definitely worth the wait!

we couldn't have done it without you
We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for all the hard work and effort you put into assisting us with our wedding and organising, and for all your help on the big day itself! It still seems surreal to think that we managed to pull off everything we had planned and we honestly couldn’t have done it without you, so thank you!

It was definitely worth waiting 3 years for it
The Wedding was absolutely amazing.... we had the best day. The Paintworks looked as good as the weather. My mum and Ash from Wild Tree did an great job picking out and arranging the trees. The ones by the ceremony in particular were fantastic. We got so many comments from our guests about how great the venue was. We can't thank you, Fay and Jess enough for everything you have done for us, we could not be happier with how it went, it was definitely worth waiting 3 years for.
