The best day!

We had our lovely wedding at the beginning of October this year. Of course we had to reschedule due to Covid from last year but this was never an issue and I can’t thank the coordinators and staff enough for making the whole process a smooth one. We had an amazing day, the staff were great, food and drinks were excellent and everyone was catered for. I honestly cannot thank you guys enough and we would do it all again! Shoutout to Megan and Maddy our wonderful coordinators who I bombarded with emails about every little detail and also the manager Kieran and the staff that worked our wedding day who made the whole day effortless and so special. Thank you guys so much! Chloe and David x

Overcrowded and underwhelming

Was involved in planning and attended family wedding. It looked good on the day but layout didn’t work, tables and chairs crammed in. Could hear chefs shouting/ banging about during speeches. The meat eaters had acceptable protein but very little go with it. Veggies had a hard time eating bland watery couscous, tinned chickpeas, tinned tomatoes. Brûlée like scrambled eggs. Evening food lacking, fish and chip cones with no fish in. Profit margins must be huge as they don’t seem to care what guests think.

The best day ever!

We just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you both did to make our day on Saturday the best day ever!

We had such an amazing time and everything ran so smoothly and perfectly.

Lots of our guests commented on how much they loved the venue and how great the food was and we would definitely agree with them.

Megan, you were brilliant in the run-up with putting all the plans into place and helping when we had people drop out and Bailey you were simply fantastic on the day, you definitely made me feel calm about the whole thing!

So thanks again for all of your hard work in making the most memorable day for us both - can we do it again?!

Lots of love, Mr and Mrs Christopher xxx

More than we could have ever imagined

I just wanted to get in touch to say a huge thank you from myself and Chris for our wedding day. From the whole planning and lead up to the day with yourself to the day with Bailey is just more than we could ever have imagined.
Every person I still speak to from the day still go on and on about how unbelievable the food was (100% the best I’ve ever had at a wedding) and the whole ambience and venue. It was just what I had always imagined and the communication and helpfulness from the whole team made it all so special. Even down to a brilliant waiter that was serving our top table on the day was just a dream! Words will never be enough to thank you for helping our day go as smooth as it did! I received my photos back last week and I still can’t believe how beautiful it all was.

Just an email to say thank you to the Bailey and the Team on Saturday.

I cannot even express how amazing this venue is

I cannot even begin to express how amazing this venue is. From every time query from a detail obsessed bride, to set up and how the day ran. The bar staff were amazing and really helped make the day, even getting up for a boogie too. It was absolutely perfect day from the perfect team. Bailey was amazing.
