We had an incredible day
Myself and David would like to thank you all at the Reid Rooms for a wonderful wedding. Everyone was lovely and couldn’t do enough for us. Our wedding was everything we wanted it to be and we had a incredible day. The grounds man ( I’m not sure his name) was great and made sure the venue looked it’s best. Angie was great before and on the day making sure everything ran smoothly. Sue and Sonia in the farmhouse were so kind and thoughtful and made sure we were well looked after. Corinne, you have been great the whole way and through answering all our questions. We can thank you all enough for making our day as special as it was. A huge thank you Faye and David

Wouldn't Change a Thing
Message: Just wanted to say what a wonderful day we had on Saturday at our daughter Chloe’s wedding to Callum. Special thanks to Hayley who ensured everything was in place. Many compliments from the guests about the venue. Lovely grounds for photos and having drinks in the courtyard as the weather was so great was the icing on the cake. We wouldn’t change a thing.

Everything was perfect
Good Morning I wanted to write an email to give my undying gratitude for the best day of our lives on Friday. Everything with the venue was absolutely perfect and staying in the house was more than we could have dreamed of. I’d like to say a special thank you to Angela who made me feel so at ease and helped with everything she possibly could, she was an absolute godsend throughout the day and made me feel so special. Also the housekeeper was wonderful, so welcoming and a breath of fresh air for our sore heads the next day. We honestly had the time of our lives, everything was perfect and we can’t thank you enough for letting us celebrate at The Reid Rooms. I want to do it again and again! Kindest regards The new Mr and Mrs Taylor x
