Better than we could have ever imagined!
After being let down with our original venue abroad, we were apprehensive about re-booking but after visiting the beautiful Jephson Gardens and meeting Steve, we knew we would be in great hands. Little did we know how much was to follow with having to rearrange on several occasions due to the pandemic. Steve and Just Inspire supported us throughout the process, listened to what we wanted and helped us through some difficult decisions to get us to our day in May 2021. We needed to adapt how our day would fall but Steve may the process so easy for us by being so accommodating and flexible throughout. The day itself was beyond perfect and Steve, George and the team ensured it ran smoothly from start to finish. The food was exceptional and all our guests commented on what a great job the team did. Just Inspire made the day feel really relaxed and we were able to enjoy it, knowing the day was safely in their hands. My and husband and I can't thank you enough and highly recommend the venue and the team for any future events. We hope to have more in the future with you! Thanks again, Tyla and Alex Russell x

In safe hands for the entire journey
We were first due to be married Summer 2020, but then delayed this to Spring 2021. Steven was able to help us navigate the uncertainty of the pandemic, really listening to what we wanted and in the end delivering on a fantastic day. From the very start of the partnership, he made himself available whenever we wanted to touch base and provided timely email updates which were incredibly reassuring given all the turbulence in government guidelines. We both felt like we were in very safe hands with Steven in all of the preparation. We got married in The Glasshouse, our immediate families sat in their bubbles, and had a very intimate ceremony. We were both able to fully enjoy the moment, and completely trust in Steve and his team. My partner and I are not extravagant people, we didn't have a big vision of what we wanted, nor did we want to feel like the wedding was not "us". Steven's experience meant that he was able to give us what we wanted, even if we didn't know what that looked like. At no point did we feel like we were being sold to - he is offering something truly personalised. Thank you for all of your efforts Steven & team. We are very much looking forward to working with you for our (hopefully) BIG reception.

A wonderful day!
My son and his wife had their wedding ceremony in The Glasshouse during the Covid Restrictions. As a result there were only 12 close family present. The room was beautifully prepared and there was a lovely calm atmosphere. Steve and his staff were very kind and helpful. They had been very accommodating with respect to the day needing rearranging due to Government restrictions. We are very much looking forward to returning next year for the reception/party.

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

This is impossible, all of our weddings are amazing for different reasons but the most common is seeing our couples friends and family come together passing food around the table from our sociable dining menus as though they were at home, we want our guests to feel relaxed and remember the day for all of the right reasons.

Start to visit venues as soon as you can, as that's when the majority of questions are answered... allowing you to start enjoying planning your special day.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are proud of way we have supported our clients through the Covid-19 pandemic, we have only had two cancellations because we stopped taking new bookings in 2020 so that we could preserve suitable dates for our existing VIP clients to postpone to if they needed to. All of our couples are calm and it feels like we have been in this difficult time together.
