I mean where do I even start … We got married on Saturday 6th July 2024, we had the most magical day from start to finish! From the moment we had a viewing at the Ravenswood, we knew it was the venue for us! The grounds are amazing, and we knew we would be able to get some exceptional photos there.The staff were very welcoming, always answered any questions we had no matter how silly or small we thought they were, there was always someone on hand to help us with our enquiry. A special shout out to our wedding coordinator, Katie, she is unreal and unbelievably excellent at what she does from the littlest things, to the major things, she does it without any issues. No problem is too big or small for her, always willing to help as and when/where she can! Katie is an asset to the Ravenswood! We would 1000000% recommend this venue without fail! Thank you for everything 🥰

Fantastic Venue & Amazing Staff
The Ravenswood was the first and only venue me and partner saw, we knew we had to book it straight away! Honestly the most smoothest day and most magical day of my life. From the start, our wedding coordinator Natalie was so lovely and listened to everything we wanted. I cannot put into words how fantastic every single staff member was, from the chiefs, bar staff, all the wedding coordinators, cleaners…just everybody! I would recommend Ravenswood to anybody you’ll fall in love instantly. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the most unique experience and a day we will never forget!

Best Day Ever!
During our first visit to The Ravenswood, we were completely blown away and knew right away that we had to secure our booking. Our wedding coordinator, Natalie Brown, was an absolute gem. She went above and beyond to ensure that every single detail was flawlessly executed, surpassing all of our expectations. Natalie was always quick to respond to and went out of her way to make sure we were always taken care of. Thanks to her meticulous planning, our special day went off without a hitch. We can't recommend The Ravenswood and Natalie Brown enough - they truly made our wedding day absolutely unforgettable.

100% recommended venue!
We both absolutely loved our wedding day at The Ravenswood and were blown away by how great they were. Katie, our wedding coordinator, was brilliant and we felt in very safe hands. She took away the stress, answered our questions and executed our instructions for decoration personalisations perfectly. Everything went smoothly, the delicious food came out promptly and all recommended suppliers worked really well together. Many of our guests commented how amazing the venue was and how great the day went. If we could do it all again we would!

Everything about the Ravenswood was perfect. The staff were very accommodating to our needs and our wedding Co-ordinator was so patient and helpful; we have received great feedback from all of our external suppliers from the wedding regarding the venue/staff/food. We had a large wedding to cater for and everyone has said how amazing the food was. From the start to finish the Ravenswood team were amazing. The venue speaks for itself. Absolutely beautiful. We had the wedding of our dreams! I stayed the night before at the Rosewood Cottage (highly recommend)!
