The most amazing wedding day
After postponing our wedding for a year due to Covid, we finally had our day on 01.10.2021. What can I say… the most amazing day we could of wished for. Krystyna was great all throughout our planning and made us feel so special on the day. We had our ceremony in the barn room and reception all at the Talbot. The staff on the day were on point and all our guests said it was the best wedding they had been too. All down to the little details, we couldn’t of faulted anything on the day. For the wedding package and upgrades we made, the Talbot came well within budget and we are so glad we had our big day with you. Thank you again so much.

The best day
We held our wedding at The Talbot in July, about a week after restrictions were lifted. Throughout the whole process Krystyna was so helpful and on the day itself the venue made everything so easy. We didn’t have the best weather, but it didn’t even matter as they were so flexible and helped us keep our guests dry. It’s an amazing venue, everyone is so friendly, the food is great and it’s beautiful there. Would 100% recommend

Hosted our Dream Wedding!
I stayed in the bridal suite the nights before and after the wedding. Absolutely gorgeous room - very spacious with a large bathroom (perfect for getting ready for the Big Day!). Room came with the usual tea/coffee-making facilities, as well as shampoo/body wash and hair dryer. Two armchairs and coffee table, as well as a dresser and very comfortable bed. As I said, lots of space for the hair/make-up artist, photographer, me and my sister when getting ready on the morning of the wedding. The bridal suite is right above reception and the room where you have your interview with the registrar, which was so handy. Krystyna (the wedding planner at the Talbot) was able to pop up easily to collect me for my registrar interview and the reception staff were on hand for any queries. My sister and I had a meal in the restaurant the night before the wedding. Food was absolutely gorgeous, there was a wide variety on the menu and it was reasonably priced. The waiting staff couldn't do enough for us! One negative thing I would say is that the rooms do not have air conditioning and the bridal suite was like a furnace! Staff did provide two fans, but the windows don't open properly and we were baking (this was in the middle of the July heatwave)! Restaurant staff kept giving us bottles of ice water, which was very kind. The bridal suite overlooks the street as well, and there was a bit of noise from the traffic from about 4am onwards. I probably would have slept through it had I not been so excited/nervous about the wedding! The next day, the staff were kind enough to allow me to grab some things from the breakfast bar and take them up to the bridal suite to eat while I was getting ready. The breakfast food was splendid - the usual options of pastries, yoghurts, cereal, toast and/or a cooked breakfast. Tea and coffee is brought to your table and there is a variety of fruit juice/ ice water on hand as well. The Talbot then hosted my dream wedding! Krystyna was absolutely fantastic throughout the whole booking process, as well as two date changes due to the Covid pandemic. I booked the Talbot because all the other venues I looked at didn't have any variety or options to adapt their packages. My now-husband and I wanted a BBQ and a disco, not a three-course meal that no-one would actually like. The Talbot said, 'tell us what you want and we'll make it happen.' And they did exactly that! When the pandemic broke out, Krystyna allowed us to change the date twice without any additional charges, which we really appreciated. On the day of the wedding, the staff were like Swiss clocks - Krystyna took my fiancé in for his registrar interview and then got the guests sitting down so that no-one would see me. She then came to get me for my interview and then accompanied me and the flower girls to the ceremony. After the ceremony, the bride and groom are taken to the Talbot's beautiful garden and then guests are led out as well. Guests were given prosecco/orange juice and free to sit anywhere. One of my fondest memories of the day is how relaxed everyone was, sitting on pub-style garden tables and chatting after two years of being unable to see each other. Photos were taken at the far end of the garden, where there is a gorgeous arbour bench (I think they're called) and large bushes for photos. We then went back inside (where staff had seamlessly changed the room around for a meal) for the most amazing barbecue we could have hoped for - burgers, chicken skewers, sausages, a variety of salads, jacket potatoes... Guests all said they were absolutely stuffed by the end, which was exactly what we wanted! The Talbot then hosted our disco and allowed us to have a hired photo booth as well. The music needed to stop at midnight, but people carried on chatting and there was no pressure to leave or anything. The Talbot does have technology in place to shut the sound off if it gets too loud, but this only happened once during the whole evening and is there to protect their neighbours, so you can't complain - just ask your DJ not to play Peter Andre's 'Mysterious Girl' as that's what set us all off and caused the sound to shut down :P Beautiful breakfast the next day out in the garden. There is also an air-conditioned conservatory-style room (I think they call it the Garden Room), which was so relaxing and peaceful. Can't recommend the Talbot enough - whether that's for a wedding, a meal out or an overnight stay :)

All our guests said it was the best wedding and venue they’d attended
I really couldn’t fault anything on the day! Everything from breakfast in the morning to the last drink on the night was wonderful. Thank you so much for all the help you gave us, and the exceptional service you provided. All our guests said it was the best wedding and venue they’d attended, and we feel so lucky to have found you and the Talbot!
