Best day of our lives, brilliant venue, amazing staff, incredible food!

Honestly our wedding journey was perfect from start to end, Arley was the first place we visited and we fell in love. The staff were so helpful from start to finish, they were flexible with what I could do myself to save some pennies. The grounds are unreal and we even got our church wedding without the ‘disjointed day’ because the church is literally next door to the venue. I would highly recommend the venue to other couples looking to get married. By the time we were married the staff felt like part of the family and we have been back since / stayed in touch with them. All my guests raved about the food being to die for and the service we received was A*

Perfect venue

Wow! This has to be one of the most stunning venues in the UK - A fabulous 1600 acre estate.

Great things to know -

Farm to fork food choices and you can create your own menu. Very talented chef and the food produced was beautiful.
Several options of places to get married. 2 outside and 3 inside. We chose the spectacular Italian Garden. Wow!
The Wedding co-ordinator is amazing and so helpful.
The bar prices are really reasonable and not, "Venue," prices.
The location is stunningly beautiful in the Worcestershire in the Severn Valley. Kidderminster is the nearest town.
Great spaces to get ready for the big day, with even a bar and room to play snooker.
The venue is purpose built, so very modern and full of natural light. However, plenty of history around the estate itself.
Almost too many options for places to get amazing photographs.
Plus the venue has fantastic accommodation options onsite, we had space for 38 people.
LGBTQ + friendly.

We could not praise it highly enough. We had the most beautiful wedding and all for a reasonable price. Every one of our guests were blown away!
A fantastic place for a destination wedding - we made a weekend of it and it could not have been better!

Thank you Arley! You exceeded every expectation we ever had.

Wedding of our dreams

A huge thank you to Amy, Nina, Amanda and Richard for making our wedding day exactly how we had envisioned and more!
We fell in love with Arley from the moment we walked up the drive and were made to feel welcome from the moment we stepped inside! Amy and Nina went above and beyond to create our wedding of dreams and kept us up to date with everything. With the weather being against us, Amy and the team were fantastic at setting up the Turner suite and made it look beautiful and intimate for us. Our guests are still talking about how incredible the venue, the team and the food was! We can not recommended the Arley team enough. They looked after us from the get go and are a lovely bunch of people. We will be forever grateful to Amy, Nina, Richard and all of the Arley team that helped in the smooth and beautiful running of our wedding journey!

Beautiful grounds and venue

We got married last June & what an amazing day it was. Amy, Amanda & Nina made the day for us from planning, decorating tables & making sure the day was perfect. Communication was fab all the way through planning. We didn't need to worry about a thing! The grounds are beautiful, the house is fantastic & the staff are lovely, it was perfect. All guests commented on how lovely it was. Definitely recommend.

Best day of our lives

We can’t recommend Arley House & gardens enough. We had our wedding on 29th June 2019 and it was just everything we imagined it would be and more. The venue is beautiful. All of guests commented on what a lovely setting it was.

The food was incredible, Amy and Richard (the chef) work with you to create a bespoke menu exactly to your taste. Amy and the team were fantastic from the moment we went to view the venue for the first time and really put you at ease when stressing about the little things.

We had our ceremony outside on the lawn on a very hot day and Amy made sure all the guests had plenty of water. The ceremony was so beautiful, it’s such a great venue for an outdoor wedding.

We can’t thank you enough, our wedding really was the best day of our lives and we wish we could do it all over again. Lauren and Matt xx

Amazing Venue

Our daughter and son in law chose this amazing venue for their reception 2 weeks ago. Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Amy and Sophie co ordinated the day to perfection. The staff were all polite kind and attentive nothing was too much trouble. The food was delicious and our guests commented on taste presentation and service. The setting was picturesque and we are looking forward to seeing the photographs.
We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their help before during and following the wedding day.
A truly wonderful day enjoyed by family friends and especially the bride and groom. Xxxxx thank you

Simply Stunning

Where to begin?! We only visited one venue when planning our wedding and even though Arley House itself was still in the midst of refurbishment at the time, there wasn’t a single doubt that we wanted to celebrate our wedding there. The setting is simply stunning, regardless of what part of the estate you’re in and unique to any other venue. Nina, Amanda, Helena, Louise and all the team were wonderful from start to finish but of course, an extra special mention to our “Lady in Blue”, Amy.
Amy lived every part of our wedding journey with us and was still running around and working her socks off way after our last guests had left. She put all the pieces of our wedding jigsaw together and it was an absolute pleasure to work with someone who so clearly loves and takes pride in what they do. We’re gutted that we don’t have an excuse to call anymore but we will definitely be back for many years to come. We couldn't recommend Arley House & Gardens enough.
