We are so grateful.
We both had the most magical day and couldn't be more grateful for the efforts of you and your wonderful team. Every single staff member we both encountered was absolutely fantastic, so friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. There really isn't anything negative I could say about the service we received and the experience we had. I had staff offering to carry things for me, opening doors for me, giving words of support. We are so grateful.

Everything was so stress free!
"I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday. The whole team were incredible, we were really blown away. All of our guests commented on how good the staff and the service was. One of the reasons we booked the old hall was because the staff had seemed really on it and like the whole process would be a breeze for us, and it absolutely was, even more than we expected. I couldn’t believe it when we turned up in the morning and everything was already all set up for me."

The venue was exceptional
I would just like to say a massive thank you to all of you who played a part of the team looking after me on my wedding on Saturday. Even though it was raining I had a magical day. No stress as the team looked after me very well and information was provided at regular intervals during the day. Everyone enjoyed the food and thought the venue was exceptional. The orangery made up for the disappointment of not having an outside wedding. Thank you again and I would highly recommend you to anyone.
