Spring Wedding at Granary Estates
Having waited four years between choosing Granary Estates and our wedding day, the venue did not disappoint, however, we have to admit that we were disappointed by the staff running Granary. Over the four years (one of many covid couples), we were passed around the events team and feel this lead to several communication issues. Here are some things to consider when booking Granary Estates; evening music needs to finish at 11.30pm, music is not allowed to be played outside in the courtyard for your drinks reception (we had an acoustic musician and was not informed she couldn’t play outside until we were in our drinks reception!); the cottages are lovely, although a little basic and some essentials are missing and on the small side for 6 guests per cottage; if providing your own playlist make sure songs are in the order you want to play (you are not allowed access to the ipad to play a different song) and you may need to contact the venue yourselves to arrange meetings. The Granary staff are super enthusiastic about all your wedding ideas but when it comes down to it, they were not as well organised as we expected from a venue with that price tag. When relaying this feedback to the staff, we were made to feel as if these (as well as other issues which I haven’t mentioned) were because of us rather than the venue taking ownership and responsibility. If we had our time again, we would still have chosen Granary as it is a stunning venue, however, feel future couples should be made aware of these aspects when booking.

The best wedding venue and planning team
We had the best wedding ever. The venue was so perfect and the planning team worked with our suppliers so well, it made the day so smooth. We were so relaxed and happy at our day it allowed us just to enjoy it and have the best day. The venue was so well organised and absolutely smashed it out the park. I can't thank them enough for how they worked with us. We would recommend the venue to everyone!

Best day ever!
Words cannot cover how incredible lucky we feel to have found Granary Estates! We had the most incredible day at this beautiful venue, and cannot thank the team enough for all they did for us. Parris and Becca made the whole process so enjoyable and made the day run so incredibly perfectly. We can’t put into words how grateful we feel to both of them, and everyone else at Granary that gave us such a perfect day. Don’t think/look anywhere else - we couldn’t recommend booking Granary any more highly. H and T x

Perfect wedding
We had looked at a few viewings before lockdown March 2020, but weren't sure we had found the one, so had to wait until viewings were allowed again. The Granary was top of our list to see once we were able to, and my partner and I instantly knew it was the venue for us. Becca and Parris were both so helpful and made sure everything went smoothly. The 2 barns and grounds are stunning, we had so many guests commenting on the day to say how beautiful it was. We are so happy we chose the granary for our wedding.

Incredible venue and support!
Parris and the team helped to make our wedding day even more magical! They took out all the stress of wedding planning, so even with a year postponement due to covid, we could just enjoy the process and had lots of support whenever we needed it. On the day they were always on hand to make sure everything ran perfectly, so we could just be fully immersed in enjoying everything and not having to think about anything. The venue itself is gorgeous and we actually ended up being really lucky with the weather, but didn't have to feel too stressed about this before as there is lots of beautiful space inside and out! The main barn made the most beautiful backdrop for our ceremony and then later in the evening too! The courtyard for the drinks reception is also lovely and there is so many cute outside parts - I could go on and on! The onsite cottages also meant that getting ready was made a lot more relaxing and easy because we knew we could just walk over when we were ready. They were really excellent too, regarding facilities and they had a great outside space for the night before! All of our guests commented on how amazing everything was, from the venue to the organisation so a massive thank you again! Would definitely recommend!

Best day ever
We couldn’t have wished for a better venue to get married at. The grounds and barns are beautiful, intimate, and offer so many different areas to explore. Granary offers so much, whatever the weather, but we were lucky enough to have a sunny day. The grounds looked incredible all day and the cottages added to the whole experience. A wonderful place to wake up, spend an evening, and Meadow cottage is the perfect place to get ready in. The Granary team are the most dedicated, caring people you could hope to be a part of your wedding. They went above and beyond to ensure we had the most perfect day, even though our day wasn’t what we had originally planned due to the pandemic. They embraced us and all of our ideas and little touches and helped guide us when we needed inspiration. They thought of absolutely everything and were just as invested in the day as we were. Thank you Parris and the GG’s for an unforgettable experience!
