Everything about it was perfect from the moment we first saw it.
We searched for a wedding venue for months and months. We could never find anything that had the relaxed, laid back vibe that we wanted, in a beautiful location and with organised staff we felt we could trust with our special day. Then we went to Tunnels! Everything about it was perfect from the moment we first saw it. Being from South Wales, we didn't really have any connection to the location but we were drawn to it's coastal beauty and the incredible setting. We loved that you could stay on site (we stayed in The Courtyard), it really made a weekend of the whole occasion and we got to spend extra special time with our closet friends and family. We got married in Nov 2019, even though it was a very wet and windy weekend the dramatic coastline and beautiful venue was still absolutely perfect. It's stunning inside and out, we barely had to decorate, the views speak for themselves. The staff at Tunnels cannot do enough for you, they are so attentive and supportive but also give you space to do your own thing. We viewed so many venues that projected their view of what our wedding should be on us, and we never experienced this with Tunnels, they were so great. They were very helpful on the lead up to the wedding, replying to countless emails due to my bridal nerves, putting my mind at ease and always having the answers. They were helpful when we arrived and on the day of the wedding, always on hand and so welcoming. They even helped us manage our playlists and music. The food was EPIC. People still talk to us about how incredible the food was. They even got in a special request flavour of ice cream for us.

The location is down right stunning
Tunnels Beaches was the first and only place we visited. We booked immediately. There is something truly magnificent about Tunnels and those who have had their wedding there or been to someone’s there will know exactly what we mean! The location is down right stunning - think ultra-cool venue meets ‘Bond Lair’ and you are some way there. Despite Yellow weather warnings and torrential rain on the day until 45 mins before the ceremony, Tunnels management and experience meant we got to get married outside (of course everything was prepp’d in case of a last minute change)! Every guest has commented (and some still do) that it was the best wedding ever - we would of course say that - but it was down to the overall professionalism of the entire team at Tunnels - cleaners to chefs and beyond. The food is something they really pride themselves on and they should! Again our guests still mention it...and one mother wishes there were more photos of the food too! The venue has so much to offer and you will struggle to find anything more unique - you can see that from the photos - but Tunnels is the entire team! From Jamie and Catherine who helped us pull it all together to Jacs who delivered on the day. The whole day ran like clockwork without us or even the wider bridal party having to worry about a thing! Nothing was ever too much, everything was pre-empted and they would always try and accommodate requests within their bounds. The venue, the accommodation, the service - everything is simply outstanding! Our best day ever with the most fantastic memories!

The best I have ever come across!
We chose Tunnels Beaches for our wedding in October 2019. It's the first wedding venue we visited and we did not view any others. It's a breathtaking venue. I happen to be a wedding photographer - and over the decades have visited many lovely wedding venues across the UK and abroad. I have never been to a wedding venue and felt as special as Tunnels made us both feel. Their attention to detail, knowledge and professionalism is the best I have ever come across. Nothing was a problem to any of the amazing people who work there. The entire team at Tunnels Beaches made us feel totally at ease with any requests / questions we had...we always knew we were in safe hands. As for the day itself - it was awesome and exceeded our expectations. The food was incredible and guests are still commenting on it was the best and most unique wedding they had been too. Thanks so much - to Jamie, Tanya, Catherine and the entire team for helping us create one of the most memorable days that we will treasure forever!

The food was INCREDIBLE!
Simon and I wanted to say such a HUGE thank you to you and your team for making our day so perfect. From start to finish everyone was so organised, calm, patient and effortlessly polite (probably all the things I wasn't on the day hahaha!) The food was INCREDIBLE - I completely mis-timed having my dress tightened! Our guests are still talking about the day even now and have all commented how wonderful the team, the food, the venue and the sunset all were. You were right about the cheese - Simon and I are still working our way through it and it's delicious! I genuinely had the best day of my life so I really cant thank you enough for making that happen so seamlessly and without issue. You've got a fab crew who are a real asset to your business. We'll most definitely be back to visit!... Love, tears and sunflowers...

We cannot recommend this venue enough
When we got engaged we knew straight away that we wanted to get married near the beach, so after a little research we booked viewings at our two favourites, the first being Tunnels Beaches and the second a venue in Ibiza (fearing the worst of the British weather!). However, from the second we walked into Tunnels on a cold and overcast day in March we fell in love with it, and both said that if we hadn't booked our flights to Ibiza we wouldn't have even bothered going! Our wedding day was like a dream come true and we loved every second! We did luck out with the weather (sunny and 20°C in the middle of September!), but even without that you just can't fault the beautiful venue, which speaks for itself and the amazing staff that make it what it is. They were always on hand to answer any questions we had and went above and beyond both before and on the wedding day, nothing was ever too much trouble. And then the incredible houses, we booked The Courtyard and The Bath House, which meant all of our family and close friends could stay with us on and around the wedding, which was just the icing on the cake. We cannot recommend this venue enough, so many of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to (and was the most amazing wedding food they had ever eaten!) So thank you Tunnels, you are a special place that will always have a place in our hearts and has given us memories that will last a lifetime - our only wish is that we could do it all over again!

The views and quality of the setting are unbelievable.
Our experience of Tunnels Beach from start to finish was simply outstanding. From our first visit to the venue and meeting with yourself we were instantly convinced to hold our wedding day at Tunnels. The venue speaks for itself, the views and quality of the setting are unbelievable. Added to that you and your team were so helpful, friendly and accommodating to our random questions. Once booked we continued with numerous questions and all were answered straight away with clear information and nothing was too much trouble to try and make our day go as we wanted. Once the big day arrived the Woodlands house was simply stunning and felt like home straight away. It is so well equipped and just beautifully decorated throughout, just to our taste! Our big day was relaxed and informal, but intimate and private, just as we wanted. With Jacqui helping to run the timings and ensuring we could enjoy the day, everything ran like clockwork. We received so many comments about the venue, not just the views but the different spaces available and probably the most about the quality and quantity of the food!! The venue is really everything you could ever ask for, we cant thank you enough for helping to make our special day just perfect. We look forward to visiting in years to come and wish we could do it all again!! Our pictures from the day show how great the venue looks even on a cloudy day!
