Spectacular venue, frustrating planner

We stumbled across the venue at a wedding fair and instantly loved it. Initial communication was ok until we started actually planning things, our ideas we out forward to the wedding planner got questions and critiqued. Luckily we are positive and optimistic people, otherwise this would've put us off. Communication was slow which delayed booking key items like the dancefloor which we almost couldn't get due to going round in circles with the planner. Highly frustrating. One visit she even got our names wrong and came out with another couples file! We had the most amazing day and the food and venue itself was stunning, but sadly I wouldn't recommend putting another bride through this ordeal.

Bluebell Railway vintage inspired unusual wedding

The venue was spectacular, the staff were wonderful. Ben and I felt special and magical on the day the the photographs came out brilliantly because of the wonderful selection of interesting and varied backdrops and props that provided great material for our photographer. Our guests had a wonderful time and all genuinely looked forward to and we're excited about the day. If you want something remarkable and special and memorable and authentic, this is it! One warning: Julia the wedding organiser takes a bit of getting used to!
