Simply perfection
From the planning process to the day, our experience with The Willows at The Woodmans team was phenomenal! They made the planning and all bridal worries disappear. On the day the ceremony, the food and absolutely everything was effortless. They ensured me and my new husband had a minute together after the ceremony to take everything in and honestly cannot thank them enough!

Thank you all so much for a perfect day!
Thank you so much for making our day so amazing! The venue was beautiful and so many people commented on how good the food was! Fiona ran our day and couldn’t have done a better job, nothing at all was too much trouble and she really did make the day even more perfect. The full team were amazing from the ladies helping us with booking and organising right through to the kitchen and bar staff. Special shout out to Ruth for helping with our planning and calling me late at night to calm my meltdown

Dream wedding venue!
We booked the Willows at the very last minute with only 7 weeks until the big day due to having so many issues with our previous venue. The willows wasn’t built when we were initially looking at venues the year earlier but we would have booked in a heart beat had it have been! From that very first phone call with Fiona where I was panicking and extremely upset, she completely changed my whole experience. I very quickly realised how special this experience should have been all along and that was all thanks to Fiona’s fantastic work. The venue absolutely blew us away on the day and we literally had the most perfect day! All of the staff were beyond helpful and kind and even my suppliers commented that this was the best venue they had been to as the organisation and helpfulness was something they hadn’t seen before. The day ran without a single glitch and you would have never known that it was only organised 7 weeks prior. The food was incredible (so many people complimented it including one of our friends who is a chef himself and hard to please!!) and I felt completely safe and comfortable in the willows care. I honestly cannot thank Fiona and the team enough, no amount of words will ever be enough to describe to you how grateful we are for our special day! I would (and have) recommend this venue to anyone and everyone! It’s a compete hidden gem and the staff just make it all that more special.

Nothing is too much hassle for the willows team!
Couldn’t recommend The Willows anymore if I tried! I honestly don’t know where to start from the second I met Fiona Alex & Ruth I knew I had absolutely nothing to worry about nothing is too much hassle for the willows team. The willows has been done out to a very high standard and is an all round great venue! Once again a massive thank you.
