The Perfect Day
The perfect day! We hadn’t even stepped inside the front door on our first visit before we knew this was the venue for our wedding. Once inside we instantly fell in love with the space but since then, the team have somehow made it better! There were renovations since our first viewing which we were lucky enough to see throughout our wait towards our big day... nothing that you’d have thought was needed, but the finish is amazing! The bar in particular being a favourite of ours!! The staff at TOV, from front of house and the planners, predominantly Laura and Chelsea, who we mainly dealt with, to the waitresses and waiters, and finally the bar staff - they’re all amazing and nothing was too much trouble on the day. Their relationships with local suppliers also made the day go very smoothly, you can understand why they recommend them! The food: choosing our menu from the amazing options available was near on impossible. Everything we had was spot on and the guests still mention it now. Finally, the rooms... exclusivity of the venue at night finished the evening off perfectly. It’s nice knowing you can fully relax with your bed just feet away after spending the whole day stood up haha! The whole day ran like clockwork and we both know that it was down to the whole team at TOV and we cannot thank them enough!

Stunning Wedding Venue
A stunning Wedding venue. All the staff from housekeeping, chefs to front of house excelled in making our stay superb. Our niece's Wedding on the 10th Sept 2021 was stunning. We can highly recommend this establishment, its owners and all the staff.

Truly Exceptional
Attended my Son and our now, daughter-in-laws wedding at this truly exceptional venue. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel at home and couldnt do enough to help. The Old Vicarage is set in stunning grounds that are perfect for an intimate outdoor ceremony. The layout for the meal and the attention to detail was second to none. The wedding breakfast and service was exemplary. This venue really does have the wow factor and you will do well to find a better location than this for your big day.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We bought The Old Vicarage 15 years ago as a derelict building, we lived here without heating or basic amenities whilst we spent 2 years and every penny we had building our dream wedding venue. We're still striving for perfection and reinvest heavily in making sure our interiors have that 'wow' factor. At the start of 2020 we decided to invest over £100k in creating a stunning new Orangery, without any increase in capacity. We're very fortunate to have a fantastic team who share our values of self-improvement and are always prepared to go above and beyond to make your wedding simply perfect from start to finish.
