The most wonderful day at Alrewas Hayes

What an absolute joy it was to have our wedding reception at Alrewas Hayes in august. The day was everything we wanted. Thanks to our wonderful wedding coordinator Emma, the day ran so smoothly, and so perfectly. Emma we can’t Thankyou enough for yours and the teams efforts to make our day so amazing.

We had so many compliments on the wedding breakfast, absolutely amazing food including the canapés on arrival. The whole venue just looked so beautiful and there were no hiccups all day and we are so grateful for that.

We had close family and friends join us in staying overnight at the venue. We had so many compliments on how modernly furnished, spotless and comfortable the bedrooms were. The honeymoon suite was absolutely fantastic for us too, we only wish we could have stayed for a few more nights in it!

The lead up to the wedding was also brilliant as we had Emma at our back and call over email and face to face. Whenever I needed a meeting to talk about even the smallest things for the big day, nothing was too much trouble for Emma. I would highly recommend Alrewas Hayes and their staff to host your special day and I really hope we return again for another wedding! Thankyou so much for everything.

The very best wedding venue

The most perfect setting for our dream wedding. Everything was amazing the staff, Amie for her help with the planning from day one when we booked right to the end. Everyone was so attentive and made us feel so special. It’s a magical setting and each room is unique. Just a wonderful place.

The best day of our lives!

I can't speak highly enough of Alrewas Hayes as a venue and the entire team - and nor can any of our guests weeks on!
The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It is so private, gorgeous and grand, yet still has a real 'homely' feel to it, which we and our guests all fell in love with. The accommodation is stunning, there are endless photo backdrops, and the actual interior is incredible. The decor of the entire place is just amazing.
One of our favourite parts of getting married here was our meal tasting night, which was put on like a big event in itself. The team couldn't do enough for us and the other couples, and the food was out of this world, as were the drinks. We had so many compliments on the day about the food - both day and night offerings, and the wines.
On our actual wedding day, everything was perfect, and that's all down to the Alrewas team, but especially Emma, our wedding planner. Emma was an absolute godsend during the build up to the wedding, and she's just a genuinely lovely girl - I always enjoyed our chats! She had great suggestions for suppliers and ideas, and I really valued her opinion. On the wedding day, she ensured everything ran perfectly, and it was so reassuring knowing she was there and had it all under control. Tom also made both our meal tasting and wedding day so special, and his knowledge of wines is highly impressive - we were so grateful for all of his advice! Bonnie and Toby were also another big reason we fell in love with this venue, as their genuine care and passion for the events they hold is so evident - even down to being present and serving drinks at our wedding! We loved the homely/family vibe that really shone at Alrewas, and that stemmed from them entirely. We are so grateful to you all, and the rest of your fantastic team for giving us the best day of our lives - you're all incredible at what you do! Thank you a million times over! Lisa X

Dream wedding

We attended a family wedding on 17/8/21 and had a fabulous time. The entire estate was well presented and spotlessly clean . The staff were well mannered, polite, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Our accommodation was very spacious and luxurious. The food was first class in taste and presentation. If I had to ask for any changes it would be to make a snug and comfortable waiting area for older relatives. Otherwise I would highly recommend this venue to any couples wanting that special day.

Avoid avoid avoid

Staff are thieves, go in rooms when your not there... tip bags out searching for food and drinks allegedly. Then mysteriously your glasses, and other items disappear.
Avoid avoid avoid, quickest way to ruin your big day.
Then they charge ya for drinks in room which wasn't being drank there were from the night before someplace else.

RaNi Wedding Oct 2019

Where can I start? From start to finish the service has been amazing! Alrewas Hayes was the first venue we visited when we started to look and we fell in love straight away! The grounds, scenery and the interior were beautiful we knew it was the one. The staff made our wedding experience the most memorable. Easy, simple and free flowing. We had endless comments and still do till this day about how stunning our venue was. Our guests enjoyed their day! Alrewas were easy to work with not only with us but the rest of our suppliers and took care of things we didnt have time to on the day. We also used the wall mapping in the grand pavilion and it was sensational!! If you're looking to get married here, you have found the perfect place!! Wish we could do it all over again!!

Exceptional Venue and Staff

We attended Alrewas Hayes for the first time to attend a wedding. The Venue itself was absolutely gorgeous. We were overwhelmed by the high standard of food and level of service offered, nothing was too much trouble. The standard of the overnight accommodation was so luxurious, we did not want to leave. We enjoyed a wonderful feast of a breakfast prior to departure and the owners took the time to check if we had enjoyed our visit and wish us a safe journey home. No hesitation in recommending.

Gorgeous place shame about the owner

I had my wedding here last year and enjoyed my day so much.

However the run up to
The wedding was ruined for me due to the owner Toby.

The most obnoxious and rude human being!!!!

Everything I asked he either replied 'no' or 'that will cost extra'.

He only informed me on the day of my wedding that no Confetti was aloud.

Honestly he ruined the build up
for me.

I have stopped friends and family from having there wedding here because of his actions and thinking he was too above you and superior.

His staff even had to have a word with him to be more friendly and to lighten up.

The Best Day!!

Alrewas Hayes, thank you!! You are so good at your jobs! Dan and I had the perfect wedding.

The day was better than we could've imagined and the team on the day went above and beyond to make everyone feel welcome and looked after.

Special mention to Georgina, thank you. You were a big reason why we chose Alrewas as we felt you understood us and knew what we wanted for our big day. You sorted everything we wanted and your advice on suppliers and support was invaluable.

Alrewas Hayes is a stunning venue. All of our guests were wowed. From day one they supported us and someone was always on hand to help. I cannot recommend them enough.

We could not have wished for a better day!

Well, where do we start? Our day has been the most wonderful day we could have wished for! We would like to thank all the staff at Alrewas Hayes for being so accommodating and making not only ours, but all our families stay so perfect. We could not have wished for a better day and this could not have been possible without all the staff here. It was the most perfect day and we couldn't be more grateful - THANK YOU!!!
