A massive THANK YOU
We just wanted to get in touch to say a massive THANK YOU, for all of the hard work you put into making our wedding reception (on Monday 19th August 2019) an absolute success! We had so many guests tell us how beautiful the venue looked and how organised it felt. I especially felt a huge sigh of relief when you came on board and took over all of the logistics from the word go!

It is a well oiled machine
I had my wedding reception at Trunkwell House in June. In the lead up to the wedding the service was professional, friendly and they couldn’t have been more helpful. It is a well oiled machine which ensured that everything went smoothly on the day. There are plenty of stunning spots to sneak off for photos. I couldn’t recommend Trunkwell House enough.

Excellent Service!
Excellent service. Had our wedding there recently and Hannah and Tony were brilliant, everything ran smoothly, nothing to worry about, little touches Tony added in off his own back made the day. Would recommend Trunkwell to anyone looking for a wedding venue!

Best Wedding Ever 2019
We recently got married at Trunkwell House and what an experience it was! We knew as soon as we visited the venue that that’s where we wanted to tie the knot and we are so glad that we chose Trunkwell. It was an incredible day and this was all down to the team at Trunkwell. Hannah was amazing and knew her stuff about weddings and what to do, she offered great advice and was there throughout the whole process. On the day Tony was the one to look after us and made sure the day ran smoothly, and he certainly did just that! From the moment myself and my bridal party arrived the night before right up until the day after the wedding. On arrival the night before Tony made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed and even put a bottle of bubbly up in the room for us. The following day was incredibly relaxed starting with an amazing breakfast, the whole Trunkwell team were attentive and really went out of their way to make sure the day was perfect and it was! Honestly if it was for the finer details that Tony and his team put in, I don’t think our special day would have been anywhere near as special! A very heartfelt thank you to all the team at Trunkwell, especially Tony and to anyone looking for a wedding venue I would 100 million percent recommend Trunkwell house! From a very happy Mr and Mrs!

Don't panic and take your time to make decisions, its a big day and has to be perfect for you. Get a wedding planner book to help you keep track of things and use a spreadsheet for comparison when choosing your venue/suppliers.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Memory tables are beautiful and really touching, we've had a couple previously who have kept a reserved seat for a member who sadly couldn't be there but just because they couldn't be there doesn't mean they wouldn't be a part of their special day!
