We couldn't recommend The Holford Estate enough!
We had our wedding at The Holford Estate in early August and we couldn't have been any happier! Since we'd booked the venue over a year and a half ago, Frances, Jacky and Hannah have been nothing short of amazing throughout. Hannah was extremely helpful and kept us both relaxed when she helped plan the little details and provided great suggestions for the bigger parts such as The Bourbon Street Band, who were brilliant. The team were there to help us get set up the day before the wedding, and had pretty much everything packed and ready for us to take the day after. Having the extra time either side of the wedding day made a huge difference, helping keep the stress down and letting us have a bit of a lie in, and it was one of the reasons we first booked the venue as most others want everything gone before most people are even awake! The day itself was perfect, the venue was absolutely stunning and the staff were all extremely helpful, friendly and professional. Everything flowed perfectly to plan, in no small part thanks to Hannah, who we don't think stopped all day! We had the best day of our lives and we've still not stopped receiving compliments about the day and the venue. We couldn't recommend The Holford Estate enough, and we don't think our guests could either!

Travel Notes

When travelling down the A556, pass the Smoker pub on your left. Just over half a mile after turn left at the green greyhound sign! The road is busy so sometimes best to slow down and indicate a little earlier :) We can also be found on Google Maps.
