    Apton hall were amazing!

    We cannot fault Apton hall for their service. Everything from the planning, through to checking out the morning after was exceptional. Throughout they were helpful and flexible with our ever changing requests, and were extremely helpful with coming up with a first class dinner menu to accommodate our requests and budget, taking the time to cater for every individual food preference. We highly recommend Apton Hall as your wedding venue, and promise you will not be disappointed.

    Stunning venue and fabulous team

    I can't reccomend Apton Hall enough. The atmosphere and welcoming energy are a couple of the many reasons we chose Apton Hall for our wedding. Every person who we came into contact with that worked at the venue was friendly, personable and nothing was too much trouble. The venue itself is stunning and well maintained and the team work very closely with you to make sure you can bring your vision to life. Hayley was wonderful to work with and answered my endless questions efficiently. She was also a very calm presence on the day making sure everything was running smoothly.
    The menu for both the day and evening food was varied and delicious, I promise you one thing that you and your guests will not go hungry as the portions are generous. And they cater so well for all dietary requirements! Highly recommend their mac and cheese canapes!!! If you get married at Apton Hall you will be sure to have a wonderful day.

    Everything I dreamed of!

    We got married at Apton Hall last week and had the most amazing day possible! I honestly cannot recommend this venue enough. Every single one of the staff are so professional, attentive & love their jobs! From the 2 years planning our big day, Hayley was on hand for everything we ever needed & helped me to be super organised. The day was a dream come true, from all the planners, organisers, bar staff, waitresses & waiters, chefs I could go on they made our day run like a dream & cannot thank you enough.
    The grounds are stunning, we definitely chose the best venue to get married at, so do not hesitate! I will remember this special day for a lifetime, thank you to everyone at Apton Hall.
    Love Mr and Mrs Duggins x

    Perfect in every way

    The most amazing venue with the most amazing staff who go above and beyond! After needing to postpone our day (too many times) Apton hall exceeded our expectations in every way possible and made the whole process with them so easy! Nothing was ever too much trouble and they were always on hand to answer any questions and help in any way... the day itself is so smoothly run and perfect that you would have no idea they had a wedding the day before and another the day after!, the staff are on hand to help you in every way possible.. even down to helping me get into my dress!
    The amount of compliments I have received on the day and still now from guests was overwhelming, compliments on the food, the set up, the venue layout, the staff.. every single one of our guests loved it!

    If I could do our day over I would! It was perfect in every way and if you get a chance to view Apton Hall in your search for a venue.. you won't look any further! Xxxxx

    Stacey, what a beautiful review! Thank you so much for your lovely words. We got there in the end didn’t we! Congratulations, and thank you so much for choosing us to host your big day.

    Apton Hall

    We fell in love with Apton Hall the moment we visited, and I am so glad we did. There is a reason why this venue is so popular and it’s because of the absolute quality that pours out of it.

    The decor, the bathrooms, the bedrooms absolutely everything is so well maintained.

    The food is exceptional and a couple of quotes from guests ‘best vegan meal she has ever had out’ , ‘best wedding food at a venue’ & lastly ‘wow, the portions! The person who is never full, left full’.

    The staff from coordinators to bar staff were amazing and really made the day stress free. We had left the bridal suite in a state when having to rush to the ceremony and the team went in and tidied it all up ready for after the day had finished. Not only tidied but completely organised it in a way that you knew where everything was and nothing went missing.
    Apton hall liaised with all our suppliers to arrange set up/ timings which completely removed that anxiety from the day also.
    I wish I could convey how lovely this venue is in words, but struggling to do so. But one word…. CLASSY!!

    Apton Hall's reply:

    Thank you so much for such a kind and much appreciated review. We absolutely loved hosting your wedding and wish you both a very happy future together!

    The day of our dreams!

    We only needed to view one wedding venue and Apton Hall stole our hearts. The entire team were amazing and made the whole process very easy for us, even with covid postponements! The only good thing to come out of covid was that we got to experience two amazing dining evenings - a chance to go back to the beautiful venue, have a wonder and enjoy beautiful food! The day itself.. where do we even start?! It was the day of our dreams, and Apton Hall had such a huge part to play with that. We couldn’t have asked for more! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!! ❤️

    Apton Hall's reply:

    Ahh what a lovely review, thank you so much! It was a p pleasure to host your day and we are so pleased that you had your dream day. Congratulations again and best of luck for the future,

    Professional, top quality

    The venue is absolutely stunning- from the function rooms to the B&B bedrooms the finish and attention to detail is top quality.

    The staff are professional yet friendly and personable; they genuinely care and want the day to run perfectly for you. They thought of everything and our wedding day went without a hitch. I was very confident in their abilities and they had my full trust from very early on in the planning process.

    The meal was of a high standard and we received many compliments from our guests as to how nice it was, the best they’d had from any wedding they had been to!

    We spent a long time selecting our wedding venue. The moment we drove up to Apton Hall we knew that this was the venue we wanted; and we are so glad we got it!

    Apton Hall's reply:

    Thank you Katy for such lovely words. We hope you are enjoying married life. From all of us at Apton Hall ❤️

    Absolutely Faultless service and venue

    Our wedding with Apton hall was absolutely faultless. They allowed us to taylor our menu exactly to our wants and when we asked for something that wasn’t on their menus they allowed us to build our own meal completely from scratch so we could have exactly what we wanted. The price was also unbelievable for what they were offering compared to other similar venues. The food was absolutely out of this world, we had so many compliments from guests. Their service on the day was amazing and made it such a stress free day, there was someone always there for anything we wanted and we were so well looked after. Couldn’t have asked for anything more

    Best day of our lives

    Apton Hall was the perfect wedding venue for us. The staff were fantastic in the lead up to the wedding and they were so attentive on our wedding day. The venue itself is stunning with so many great photo opportunities. We made the most of the rooms on site and also booked out the cottage at the end of the driveway, all the rooms were fantastic and the breakfast the next day was as incredible as our wedding breakfast. Apton Hall were really flexible and were happy with us to bring decorations, a photo booth, a food van, a live band and even a table tennis table with us. We cannot fault Apton Hall, the whole experience was just perfect!

    Thank you so much Emily! We hope you and Joe are enjoying married life! We look forward to seeing you soon. From all of us at Apton Hall ❤️

    Perfect venue; perfect day

    We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding - it’s beautiful & classic, so didn’t require too much decoration, but would suit various tastes. Layout is great for keeping guests mingling but also providing different areas so that some can party whilst others have a more quiet chat. Plenty of space, so our younger guests could explore and play. The bridal suite is gorgeous and was a perfect location for us girls to get ready in the morning. The accommodation on site was ideal for our guests who had travelled further to be there. Food was incredible. We were also able to have an external company come and provide ice cream, so the venue were flexible in this regard. Staff were really friendly, couldn’t have been more helpful and made the whole process of coordinating the day’s events as easy as possible. Just wish we could do it all again!

    We found the cost excellent value but we did receive an introductory discount as we booked our wedding before the venue opened.

    Apton Hall's reply:

    Thank you so much for your kind words Daniella! We hope married life is treating you kindly. From all of us at Apton Hall ❤️

    Book to get married at Apton Hall, you definitely will not be disappointed.

    We absolutely loved our Apton Hall Wedding, we can NOT thank the team enough.

    In what is stressful enough time, we had COVID thrown in to the mix as well. Lauren was our wedding co ordinator, kept us upto date and stayed in touch throughout. Our wedding was originally booked for May 2020, and we moved it to September 2020. We had a much smaller intermate wedding, but we would not change a thing.

    We looked at Apton Hall first and no other venues we looked at compared, on the setting or the service. We met another wedding coordinator at another venue and she just did not compare to how good Lauren was. We used some of the preferred suppliers- Sticky Fingers (cake), Three Cheers Media (video), Courts of Rayleigh (Flowers) and The Humble Photography (photos!) and they were all amazing and tallied everything up with Lauren.

    Book to get married at Apton Hall, you definitely will not be disappointed.

    Thank you so much for your lovely words. It was a lovely day despite the restrictions and we are so pleased you had the best time. From all of us at Apton Hall ❤️
