A perfect informal wedding day
Our wedding was originally supposed to be on the 16th of August 2020 but of course we had to delay due to COVID and we finally got married on the 1st of August 2021! We had our wedding in the Tithe Barn, a beautiful rustic barn opposite the main hotel building. The inside is so beautiful we didn’t even feel the need to have any additional decorations for our ceremony. The day ran perfectly and was very informal. We had the barbecue menu which was perfect for us: burgers, piri piri chicken, halloumi burgers and veggie burgers for vegetarians and vegans. We had many guests saying they also enjoyed the food. We ended up overrunning during dinner but there was no pressure for us to rush through eating or the speeches. The relaxed atmosphere was exactly what we were after. One thing that is worth pointing out is some of the staff are inexperienced, we think they have taken on a lot of new staff post-COVID, so the bar staff were quite slow. However, it didn’t cause us any real issues and this will likely be improved in time. Abby, the wedding organiser, was very attentive to both the groom and myself in the morning. She was even able to arrange for us to have our photos in the library which we really appreciated. Whenever we needed anything, either her or one of the other staff were always close by and able to help out. Overall, we couldn’t really ask for any more. The day ran perfectly and we liked that we weren’t rushed around or out of the room when they needed to do the changeovers. It was very casual and meant we could both relax. We’d definitely recommend a wedding at The Olde Bell!

Amazing Wedding Day
Myself and James just wanted to say a massive thank you to Gabriela and the team. Our wedding day was very well organised and ran very smoothly, from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast. It was perfect and just as we hoped it would be. We were very impressed with Julian and the whole waiting team, they did a phenomenal job on the day and ensured all tables were catered and that the drinks and canapes flowed. Julian thought of every detail and my Dad let me know that Julian and his team even beautifully presented and laid out the cheese and crackers that we had personally provided. We were also grateful that Julian gave me and James a glass of champagne at midnight, as we had not been able to get one with everyone coming over to talk to us! It was small details like that, that meant so much. Please pass our compliments onto the to the chef and his team. We received so many comments from our guests about how lovely the food was and everyone was impressed with just how much food there was! Several of our guests said it was by far the best food they have ever had at a wedding which meant so much to us and in itself is a huge compliment to your chef and his team. A big thank you as well, to you Gabriela. We are very grateful for all your help and support with the organisation of our wedding. You were always there at the end of a phone or computer to answer all our questions. We had the most amazing Wedding Day at the Olde Bell and for that it will always hold a special place in our hearts.
