Wonderful night and every night!
Well what can I say about the lovely Orchard! Through out our whole time with the orchard (we booked in 2020!) They have been nothing but fantastic! Any problem I had was never too small for reassurance and they always had the best advice for any situation! Tanith was an absolute godsend through out the whole planning! She was very professional but also felt like a friend I've known for years! We cannot thank her enough for our special day! The food was glorious, the drinks amazing shout out to Charlie for his fantastic cocktails! The staff were all amazing and so helpful throughout our day, outer guests were blown away buy everything! I just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you again!!!!

Amazing venue!
I’m not really sure where to begin to express how amazing The Orchard was as a wedding venue. Our day was perfect. The venue is beautiful. There are so many different areas for photos and the setting is amazing. We feel lucky to have been able to get married here. All our guests commented on how lovely the venue was. The food was incredible. I definitely could have licked the bowl from the chocolate brownie. The packages have so much included and they are great value for money. The staff are on another level. They are kind, efficient, great at their jobs and nothing was too much trouble. The service was amazing and they accommodated everything to make our vision a reality. In particular Tanith was amazing as our wedding planner. She kept us informed and was so approachable. She is great at her job! Overall the venue is amazing. I want to get married here every day!! I can’t fault them at all and would recommend to everyone. Thank you so much for making our day perfect!

What an amazing day
From start to finish the whole team at The Orchard made the experience incredible. From when we first set eyes on the Venue we fell in love, the staff were so accommodating and the place was beautiful. We knew it was the one. When the day finally come it just couldn’t have been more magical, nothing was too much and we really did have the most perfect day. Thank you so much for making us the happiest couple.

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!
