Thank you again for giving us the best day.
Hi Karen, Thank you so so much for Saturday, Liam and I had an absolutely amazing day, and we really were so happy with how everything went. All of the staff at The Priory were so friendly and helpful, and everything was exactly as we had hoped for, and actually exceeded that! We had so many compliments on the beautiful venue and particularly on the food, everyone loved it! I also had a few people come up to me after our announcement saying they’d seen me drink prosecco, so no one realised it was Shloer! Thank you again for giving us the best day. Louise and Liam xx

We loved every single second.
Thanks so much Karen! We loved every single second. Everything ran so smoothly and we wouldn't have changed a thing!!! Thanks for not charging us for the remaining beers - I knew there would be a lot of drink consumed LOL. The food was INCREDIBLE! Everyone came up to us saying how amazing it was. The bar staff and waitresses were so efficient and accomodating. Nothing was a problem. What platform would you like us to write a review? Thanks again xx

The barn was absolutely beautiful
Hi Karen, Thank you so much for yesterday. The barn was absolutely beautiful and set up exactly how I would have done it myself and everyone commented on how stunning it all was. The staff were amazing. I just wanted to let you know that Berwick, who fainted, is absolutely fine and was back at the hotel by the time we got back with no lasting effects! Thank you all so much for staying calm and your quick action and for sorting everyone out to move out of the way. I can't tell you how much we appreciate it and we are just so relieved he is OK. The food was amazing and the chef did such a good job managing to hold it all when the timings went a bit off! We had an absolutely amazing day. Hannah and Luke x

Huge thank you for the day!
Hi Karen and Jay We wanted to start by saying a huge thank you for the day. The evening was extraordinary and surpassed our expectations. The attention to detail that we handed over was on point. The venue was STUNNING! We also would like to add how OUTSTANDING the food produced by Jeff and his team was. Words cannot describe the compliments that our guests gave. There was not a single guest we spoke to that did not mention the food. In fact SO many said it was the best food they had ever eaten at a wedding! Tom and I thoroughly agree with that sentiment. The salmon starter, the main and wow what a dessert! We would all like to relive the day all over again, even if only for the food! Your staff were so unbelievably helpful, even to the point where I bought a drink from the bar and then was dragged to dance and the lady brought it to me! We will pick up with you tomorrow / next week on the bar tab. It would be so interesting for Tom and me to see what was drank and to pick up what was left on the bar. The whole day was nothing short of magic, a fairytale, dream come true and made up of everything we have been through the past 3 years. None of it possible without firstly John RIP, Jay and of course yourself, Jeff and the whole team. Thank you, thank you, thank you! Big hugs!!! Kind Regards, Christiana
