The Best Day Of Our Lives
We knew from the minute we stepped foot out of the car in the car park of The Oakwood that this was where we wanted to be married. The setting and the venue have been so carefully curated, thought has gone into every element, every positioning of things, and this thought and attention to detail meant that the day ran absolutely seamlessly. If we needed further convincing this was our venue, Jess was the one to do it. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm for our happiness was exactly what a new engaged couple needs! It was clear within the first 5 minutes that she knew what she was talking about, and she knew what needed to be done to ensure the day runs as planned. We discussed details, how it would run, and available dates... and booked it within hours! During the run up to our big day, Jess was always contactable for any queries, and she helped us to make sure that we had everything planned when it was needed. Cue the big weekend. On arrival on the Friday afternoon, everything was ready and looking absolutely radiant. Jess was there to greet us and show us where everything was, and then she left us to it! The rooms were STUNNING. Every single guest commented on how beautiful their room was and how excited they were to get dressed in the morning. We all congregated in the shared living space and it was just perfect - some people were playing games, we had people preparing the food (we planned jacket potatoes and toppings which worked really well) and we had a little group finishing off stamping our confetti. The room flowed brilliantly, everyone was involved with what was going on, and it was an evening filled with fun and laughter. On the Saturday morning, the bridal suite was bustling and again it all flowed brilliantly. There has clearly been a lot of thought put into the get-ready space and it was an absolute pleasure getting ready there. We were also allowed to bring our Dog of Honour for a bit of the day which was just such a kind addition as she is our baby! There are so many spots that make for beautiful photographs, both inside and outside. Again this has been so well thought out, without it being particularly “posed”. Our guests’ jaws were on the floor as they wandered around the different areas of The Oakwood, and we were so proud to show it off as ‘our’ venue. We really could not have chosen a better venue to spend our special day and weekend. One of the best things they gave us throughout was the complete lack of any worry. We knew we were in safe hands. We are so incredibly happy with everything about the day, and a large part of that is due to Jess and The Oakwood. Thanks so much everyone! xx

Summer Wedding!
We had the perfect day in August 2023 for our wedding day. When we first visited back in 2021, we were instantly impressed by the quality of the gardens, the barns and the luxury feel of the accommodation. The beautiful ceremony barn lights just make the room feel that extra special. I look back on our day and it was incredibly special - seeing our friends enjoying sitting outside in the gardens, socialising upstairs in the bar area and enjoying the space. I wish we could do it all again!

Just Wow!!
Every part of the Oakwood is incredible. We booked in 2020 when in process of being built but completely fell in love with the vision. The Oakwood invited us along every step of the way and it is just amazing. The staff are friendly and helpful. Jess, the coordinator goes above and beyond for you, and basically made our dream day come true. All of our expectations were surpassed. Just incredible, out of this world

Amazing, picturesque venue with fantastic staff
We recently got married at the Oakwood and our experience from start to finish was absolutely fantastic. We started looking for a wedding venue -at the start of 2021 and as soon as we visited the Oakwood for the first time we fell in love with the venue and we knew this was where we wanted to get married. At the time the venue was fairly new so we have loved watching it all come together with each visit. At every visit we have a left with such a lovely feeling, the venue is truly magical. The venue - the venue is beautifully landscaped and doesn’t really require much additional decoration which was perfect. The barns are all naturally beautiful and the additional lighting in both are perfect - we particularly loved the fairy light wall in the ceremony barn! Having the accommodation on site and the venue for our whole wedding weekend was so nice and we were able to spend some quality time with our closest family and wedding party before and after the wedding. The accommodation itself is so unique, every room tells the story of the owners and each room has its own decor which we loved! Jessica & the team - we have absolutely loved working with Jessica over the last couple of years. She has helped us plan the wedding down to every little detail and always answered questions and concerns very quickly. Jessica’s support is what stood out the most to us, she was there all weekend making sure we were ok and making sure everything went to plan as much as possible. As it was a July wedding we never really discussed a weather plan B other than knowing that Jessica had one! On the day we had rain and thunderstorms and Jessica & team adapted everything to work around this without us even having to think or worry about this. On the day we had some other things go wrong and again Jessica went above and beyond, making sure things were sorted. Thank you so much for all your support including all the pep talks on the day! Overall, we would highly recommend the Oakwood to anyone searching for a wedding venue! If you want somewhere picturesque no matter the weather, 5* planning support, a friendly team to work with and beautiful accommodation then look no further! :)

A special shout out also has to go to Jess our wedding coordinator who helped us continuously throughout our whole wedding experience cannot thank you enough!
