Where to begin...
Perfect doesn’t even come close, we dreamt of our perfect day for so long and what we got was a dream come true. Every single detail was faultless, everyone commented on how the service and the day was seamless. This is all thanks to the team and especially Laura. Having gone to school with Laura it felt like we had come full circle having her help plan our wedding, her friendly nature put everyone at ease and she certainly did that with us. Without Laura on the morning of my wedding I would have been a nervous wreck (however I still cried the whole way down the isle) never the less your calming nature and infectious smile helped exactly when I needed it the most. From the initial meeting through to the morning of our wedding, nothing was ever too much. The food, the beautiful venue, the team .. just everything, from the bottom of our hearts thank you! The Old Vicarage will hold a very special place in our heart forever. Love Mr and Mrs Bainbridge xox

So perfect
Honestly I don’t even know where to start! We finally had our special day! 2 years later, but with 2 postponements the staff were amazing with the communication. I would highly recommend couples staying the evening before their wedding, we did and it just made the day even more special. The staff were amazing from the moment we arrived to the moment we left, so helpful and nothing was to much when asking for help. The food, wow the food was amazing! From the breakfast on the morning of the wedding to the canapés, to the actual wedding breakfast and the evening food, it was just beautiful, I think all of our guests were shocked and amazed at how lovely the food was. The venue, well so many people couldn’t believe how beautiful the venue was, and so many people said how lovely because it was just ours. I am so happy we chose here for our special day, I couldn’t imagine it happening anywhere else, it was just so perfect. So I would just like to thank all the staff from the bottom of my heart! I can’t thank you all enough for everything! Thank you for helping make our special day. Gemma and Daniel ❤️ x

TOV will always hold a special place in our hearts
Apologies it’s taken so long to write a review, we still cannot believe how perfect our day was and it’s been so hard to put into words our gratitude. It was a long road to get here with the multiple rearrangement due to covid but I honestly couldn’t wish for better people to help us through such a hard time for both couples and the industry. Laura, Suzanne and Chelsea are what makes this amazing venue which is not only immaculate and stunning but also every detail is perfectly executed and nothing is too much trouble. Laura made planning an absolute dream and nothing was too much trouble! Our day was the best day ever thanks to the whole team, from housekeeping through to the chef, waiting staff and of course the amazing planners who were there on the day to ensure everything ran smoothly. The compliments we have had following our day have been wonderful. We are so glad we chose The Old Vicarage as our wedding venue, we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and no other venue would ever compare. TOV will always hold a special place in our hearts. All the very best for the future, Mr and Mrs Heaton xxx

Most Special Day!
From the moment we arrived at The Old Vicarage we fell in love from the beautiful decor to the homely feel it was perfect. Laura made our planning meetings an absolute breeze, no request was too much she just wanted our day to be our vision. All the staff were incredible throughout the day and it couldn't have gone smoother, special mention to the bar staff for all the baby Guinness shots that aren't on the menu! We've had so many comments from guests about the food which was delicious, the pimms for welcome drinks also went down very well. From the bottom of our hearts thank you so much to TOV for making our wedding the most special day Richard & Jasmine Harris x

Outstanding through and through!
I honestly don't know where to start, other than praise them for their wonderful staff, attention to detail and the stunning decor that this venue has to offer (which goes without saying). Laura & Chelsea our wedding planners have been amazing from start to finish. We had many date changes due to covid. Laura was always so professional, reassuring and efficient. Her attention to detail is outstanding. The day itself went so smoothly, even after the groom arriving too early! We would like to personally thank them for making our day so perfect and special, and for all of their incredibly hard work. They have been amazing to work with throughout our entire experience (over 2 years) and have made everything so easy for us both! I can't put into words how fantastic both these girls are. They're a credit to TOV and it wouldn't have been the same without either of them. The food was exquisite, all our guests commented how delicious it was and even I, a picky eater, ate every bite! We even asked them where they sourced their sausages from their cooked breakfast, they were out of this world! So yes, the venue is absolutely beautiful and the quality of their refurbishment is outstanding, but the staff there are the ones that make it what it is. They are incredible and deserve all of their achievements. The perfect intimate venue to have your special day in. I wish them all the best and no doubt they will keep creating amazing memories for each of their couples on their big day. Love, Charlotte & Matt X

Wish we could stay for longer!
I knew from looking online at The Old Vicarage that it was the venue I wanted to marry at and our first show around cemented it. It's a gorgeous venue and the fact it's tailor made for small numbers made it the perfect fit for our wedding day. Laura and Chelsea were really supportive in the run up to the wedding with answering all of our questions, and just as helpful on the day. Despite the 28 degree heat, the day went so seamlessly that we didn't have to worry about anything. Everything ran like clockwork and we hardly noticed the team working tirelessly and professionally in the background. Our guests all commented on how good the food was, especially the assiette of dessert. We had the most amazing day and highly recommend TOV; a stunning venue with beautiful bedrooms… The only downside was that we couldn't stay for longer! A huge thank you once again, Mr & Mrs Starkie, 16/07/22 x

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.
