Wedding 04.06.2022
We had our wedding at the beautiful Stoke By Nayland Resort on 4th June 2022. We originally booked the venue during the COVID uncertainty in early 2021. Stoke By Nayland were the only venue who gave us a virtual tour during that time and gave quick responses to all our questions. In the time from booking the venue to the big day, Jess, Simone and the wedding team were always available to update us and available to meet in person to discuss and co-ordinate our day. On the day itself, things couldn't have gone any better! Massive thank you in particular to Jess and the staff, who went above and beyond to make us feel like VIPs on our special day. We couldn't recommend Stoke By Nayland Resort highly enough!

Such a perfect day!
We had our wedding here in February 2022 and it was the best day ever. The venue and grounds are stunning, the food was 1st class and all the guests were so impressed they could choose what to have. Melanie (and Simone before her) was an amazing support and even managed some last minute dress alterations! We felt so special and it was lovely having so many people stay at the hotel and share a special breakfast with us the next day. The whole experience was magical, thanks to all the fabulous staff at SbN and also great value for money.

Amazing venue for a wedding
We had our wedding here in August 2021 and it was amazing. The staff went over and above, the grounds are beautiful for photos, the rooms were great. It was nice having everything under one roof which was convenient for the family. The day run smoothly thanks to all the staff involved and we will be back again.

The best day ever
With covid delaying our wedding day we were never too sure what was going to happen. Simone has been absolutely fantastic and always so willing to help, whenever I contacted her I felt reassured and ready for the day. The whole team helped make our day magical and at such a beautiful venue too. The day could not have gone any better, thank you

My husband and I had just the most amazing day celebrating our wedding at this venue. the staff were exceptional and nothing was too much. Simone was so helpful in the planning and Becky, front of house, was just beyond amazing on the actual day. All the staff worked so hard to make our day what it was. The rooms are huge and food was just perfect. Everything I ever dreamt my wedding day would be. Thank you stoke by nayland for making our wedding day perfect.
