Our wedding day, 07.05.22
We honestly had the most amazing experience with the Orchard, from first booking it all the way up until our wedding it really was the best and a 5 star experience from start to finish. We couldn't have asked for anything more from our wedding day and it really was the most perfect and happiest day of our lives. The Orchard made it such an easy experience and took so much of the pressure away from planning a wedding and we've had so many compliments on our day and venue. The venue was beautiful, the staff were amazing, the food was unreal, there is not one way we could fault. We wish we could do the whole experience and day again!

Best wedding ever
Where do we start.... Stunning venue, amazing staff. In particular Tanith who could not do enough for us to make sure we had the best day. Anything we needed even up to the last minute was dealt with quickly and efficiently. The suppliers that came with that came with the package were outstanding. John the Toastmaster was amazing, he ensured our day was always running to plan and was always reassuring with our requests plus always making sure we knew what we were doing and what we're coming next. He helped make the day what it was, with humour and assertiveness. A truly lovely helpful man! Thank you John! Now onto Mark Grey the Photographer, a very friendly and helpful man he put us at ease immediately with our pre wedding shoot - he even assisted The Groom with his cufflinks in the morning of the wedding which was greatly appreciated! The pictures we have already seen look sensational and we cannot wait to the see the rest of them along with the video. Thank you to Mark his Son! Who provided the Videography! The Flowersmith provided beautiful flowers which were greatly appreciated particularly by the bride. The DJ provided was superb kept everyone going all night and played all of our music as requested, the dance floor was full the entire time! Please do hesitate to choose The Orchard as they will not disappoint your wedding will be sensational!

Amazing, attentive and nothing was too much
We wanted our wedding unique to us, and everybody couldn’t be more helpful. Tanith listened to everything we wanted and put it all together perfectly. All our guests commented on how beautiful everything looked and how relaxed they all felt. Thank you all for making our day so special
