You both have been amazing from the start of our journey with you
Hi Karen & Jay, Thanks so much for Saturday we had an absolute blast! The barn looked stunning and guests kept telling us what a lovely venue it was. The staff were just amazing and a special thanks to Lauren for all her help during the day/evening, everything ran so smoothly. Chef even made one of our guests a cheese sandwich for starters as she couldn't have the pate as she's pregnant (sorry for no advance warning on that one) so thank you for your flexibility. Liam loved his double portions and yes polished it all off! You both have been amazing from the start of our journey with you to now. Nothing has ever been too much to ask and you've always been at the end of the phone/email to remind me us of what we'd chosen for the day, given the delays with covid we couldn't remember much from the first wedding meeting! We are sorry we didn't get to share our special day with John as he really was the reason we chose the venue. He made us feel so comfortable and relaxed when we first viewed the barn and we knew immediately that's where we wanted our big day. Hopefully, he was looking down on us on Saturday with a smile on his face knowing that everything is still running like clockwork by two wonderful people! So from the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU SO MUCH, we couldn't have asked for a better day! My sister in law took a lovely photo of the barn so I've attached it in case you would like it. If I get any others I'll let you know. Once we have some photos from John the photographer we will share some with you. Thanks again, Amy & Liam x or should I say Mr & Mrs Robinson x

We wish we could relive it all!
Hi Karen and Priory team, We have just got back from our mini-moon at brownsea and wanted to reach out to say what an amazing magical day we had, honestly it couldn't have gone better and we know that was down to a heroic effort by you, Jeff, Lauren and the team (hoping by now you might have received the card we sent?) We wish we could relive it all! Every single guest said how beautiful the venue was, how efficient the service was and how absolutely delicious the food was. We cannot thank you enough. We hope that you all get some much deserved time off to relax and indulge after having what we can only assume one of the most manic and chaotic years yet with double serving of weddings. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Attached are some images our photographer Samantha Wheeldon from Inspire Images and our guests have sent through as a sneak preview. Kind regards, Liana and Sophie

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
