Intimate wedding at Aswarby Rectory
We recently got married at Aswarby Rectory after the government guidelines changed and we were restricted to 15 guests. We had originally intended to have a much larger wedding and were dubious whether this would feel like the wedding we had planned. However, we could not have had a more perfect day. It felt like a wedding distilled to its essence, telling the person you love that you want to spend the rest of your life with them, in front of our closest family and friends. It was a magical day that was made more memorable by its intimacy. Donna and Richard instilled in us a belief that a wedding of 15 could be special and went above and beyond to make this a reality. The space was used creatively, and the beautiful venue was adapted perfectly to our small party. A small wedding may not be for everyone, however we cannot recommend enough putting your trust in Donna and Richard at Aswarby, you will have a fantastic day.Sent on 14/10/2020

We had our wedding at Aswarby in July 2019 and it honestly was the best day of our lives. The venue is simply stunning and Richard and Donna were amazing. They were so helpful throughout the whole process of planning our wedding and on the day they handled everything. Their staff were friendly and helpful and I knew they had everything under control so I could relax and enjoy my wedding day. This venue is simply perfect, and I cannot recommend it enough,
