Amazing!
I was initially little hesitant and nervous after booking Tewin Bury Farm for our wedding last month due to the limited contact we had in the early stages (booked with 2 years to go). This was a totally unnecessary hesitation as once we began liaising with the weddings and event team nothing was too small or much for them. They respond to all queries promptly and answer the questions very clearly. They supported us with all decisions and with where things would work best on the day i.e. games/photo booth/cards etc. The on the day team are fabulous. I barely saw our coordinator once I walked down the aisle, the day ran soo smoothly and was just spectacular. We really couldn't have asked for a better day. The coordinators handled basically everything with the suppliers and guests throughout the day that meant there was very little for us to do or stress about which let us just enjoy every moment. My family members that spoken to the coordinators said they were so friendly and amazing. The room turn around from ceremony to dinner and then reception was something I was anxious about because it was one of the few things I had no control over (happens whilst you have photos done) but the tables looked exactly as I had pictured and everything was where it was suppose to be. The food has been praised by so many guests for the fantastic presentation and taste. The food came out like a military operation definitely a well oiled system, everyone was eating each course at the same time and the clear up was just as quick. Highly recommend booking your wedding day here.

I just wanted to compliment you & the Tewinbury staff for the professional service you provided yesterday. It all went smoothly as we felt 6 months of pressure building up to the event instantly disappear! Phoebe managed the day beautifully and everyone complimented the meal. A final mention and thank you for the evening/night duty manager who was very supportive of Kates daughter who wasn’t feeling well.

A magical day
We had the best wedding day! No detail was too small for the team and they made us feel very at ease! I was so nervous before the ceremony and our event manager managed to keep my nerves at bay and make me feel ready before walking down the aisle Couldn't have asked for better scenery either for our photos

Our Wedding Day Was Simply Perfect
We just wanted to email to say a huge thank you. Our wedding yesterday was simply perfect and it was because of all the amazing staff at Tewin Bury. From the team who helped us plan the day, to everyone who helped keep everything running smoothly on the day, to the hotel staff for helping get lots of guests checked in, to the dinner service and bar staff who were so quick and organised to everyone other member of staff we saw around the grounds. Each and every member of the team at Tewin Bury were nothing short of amazing. We were constantly met with kindness and everyone was so attentive, helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much for the staff and everyone went above and beyond to look after us from taking care of my veil, to getting us checked in (because we forgot) to ensuring we even had some wedding cake kept for us because we didn’t get to eat it during the night. All of that really does show what an amazing wedding venue Tewin Bury really is. We have had so many compliments about the high quality of food, service and the amazing grounds. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Yesterday was truly the most magical and best day of our lives and you have all played a huge part in that. We truly appreciate everything you have all done!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We love all our weddings here! But one of my most memorable is when the bride and groom did a bouncy hopper race in the garden, followed with an ice cream bike and all the guests singing during dinner!

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

Make lots of lists! Tick everything off as you go along, not only does it keep you on top of your 'to dos' but also its satisfying when you can tick something of the list.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

The bride and groom created a treasure hunt for all the kids, at the end of it they got their own personalised teddies.
