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.
