To Michela, Owen & Laura. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day at Athelhampton so special. It would not have been the same without your superb organisational skills, guidance and help in answering all our questions beforehand and bringing everything together on the day so smoothly.Sent on 25/10/2019
the House and Gardens are so beautiful and we still can't believe how lucky we were to catch the sunshine for an outdoor ceremony! The food was fabulous and we had lots of positive feedback on it from our guests, as well as how much they loved the venue.
