The BEST Day!
We fell in love with The Orchard when we first visited and booked our date very soon after. Katie was excellent in the planning stages answering all the questions and nothing was to much to ask. On the day Katie and the team were amazing from the moment of arrival to the moment we left. Several of our guests also commented on the venue and how fantastic the staff were :-)

Amazing venue
The Orchard is a stunning venue with a beautiful backdrop into the countryside. Our wedding co ordinator Katie was on hand for anything we needed in the run up to our wedding, nothing was too much trouble for her! On the day Katie was extremely helpful and ensured everything came together seamlessly. All our guests have been commenting on how amazing the service was and how delicious the food was. I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone

Hands down the best day of my life
The Orchard was fantastic from start to finish. Even when we first started planning and had millions of questions, the team were amazing at showing patience and care to take us through each step. The team clearly care about how your day will go and it shows in the service and support they gave us and our guests. A special shoutout to Tanith too who was just amazing. Everything from the food, the DJ, the getting ready room was fantastic. I cannot recommend the Orchard enough, it was truly an amazing day. Thank you Tanith and team xxx

Beautiful venue
I cannot speak highly enough of the Orchard, the venue, its staff and the whole wedding day! From the first time meeting with Tanith she made us feel welcome and at ease. The planning was all made easy and someone was always there to answer our questions. The day itself was incredible, the venue looked beautiful and everything was set out perfectly. The food was amazing and the staff are all friendly and helpful! It is also a dog friendly venue which was so important for us. You get great value for your money at the orchard and I throughly recommend getting married here! Thank you Tanith and team for the best day! From Jess , Kevin and Lily pug!
