You (and your staff) were simply outstanding!
Good Morning Gabby, Thank you SO much for everything you did for us on our wedding day!! You have been an absolute star throughout the final stages of our wedding planning. We had such confidence in you just from emailing, but when we met you the day before the wedding, we knew we were in the best hands. We had the most amazing day and your endless hard work throughout the entire wedding made this happen. You (and your staff) were simply outstanding! Your smiley, calm and professional approach to your job is a real asset to Priston Mill and we couldn’t have wished for anything more from you, a truly fantastic Event Manager!!! The venue looked amazing and exactly as we had pictured it, our decorations were set up perfectly, we really appreciate your efforts in the morning! A big thanks also for sorting the cake when it eventually arrived. We had no idea it was being set up, but when we did see it, we were so impressed it had just happened with no interruption to our day. Thank you once again!! Ed & Lauren - Mr & Mrs Grace (20.08.2021)

A Nature Inspired Barn Wedding in Somerset
We’d love you to join us on an escape to the idyllic Somerset countryside for a celebration in a characterful eighteenth century barn, beside an ancient watermill, set within immaculately landscaped English country gardens. Here, our couple sought to bring the beauty of nature with them indoors, with wild meadow flowers and whimsical touches, as well as a traditional tea ceremony to honour our bride’s Chinese heritage.
