Venue Service '3rd October 2015 - Mr and Mrs Webb'

By Mr Webb, on 27 Oct 2015

Our day was amazing, all the staff were very helpful and friendly. All our guests commented on how lovely the venue was and how professional and helpful the staff are. We loved the venue as soon as we drove down the drive towards the house we fell in love. Being able to have our family stay overnight and join us for breakfast was so special of us. Thank you to everyone.

Venue Service 'We had an amazing day!'

The whole process was smooth from the very first open day to the day itself. Our wedding planner was great. The evening supervisor was also lovely and made sure we were very happy.

Venue Service 'Million times more than what we had expected!'

By Samantha and Kelly, on 27 Jun 2015

Our Wedding and Events Manager was all we expected and a million times more, she made sure we were completely at ease from start to finish. Being a same sex couple, we came across a lot of venues who were able to do same sex marriages but you could tell you would be treated differently ... but Fennes was the exception, We came to view the venue 18 months before we got married at an open evening and we fell in love. One the day we could not of asked for more. We cannot thank everyone enough who was part of this special process, adding little touches making the day the most magical day of our lives.

Venue Service 'Big thank you!'

By Jill, on 27 Jun 2015

This is just a really big thank you to all staff who were working at Fennes in May 2015, the day of our sons wedding. The whole day was absolutely fantastic, the venue was beautiful and every single member of staff worked so hard to make it a day the happy couple will never forget. We will certainly be recommending Fennes to other couples looking for a wedding venue. Well done everyone.
