Out of this world!
Alex, our wedding coordinator, was perfect from start to finish! She made our day so unbelievably special and it went so smoothly. We had no stresses and we were able to enjoy our day with all of our loved ones. We've been inundated with compliments of how beautiful the venue and the rooms are. Our family are even talking about hiring the house out for one Christmas in the future! We've already booked onto their date night event in February and we're so excited to go back and relive our memories. It's no surprise Brinsop has been voted the best venue in the UK. It doesn't compare to anywhere else!
The perfect venue
Our dream wedding venue!
There are many different locations to choose from for the ceremony (including indoor/outdoor options), drinks receptions and wedding breakfast. We chose to have our ceremony outdoors in the courtyard, drinks reception on the lawn and wedding breakfast and dancing in the Knot Barn.
The entire team from start to finish were nothing short of incredible. The team made us feel so relaxed prior to our wedding and nothing was too much trouble for them - special shout outs go to Daisy & Izzy who were brilliant.
All of our guests commented on how amazing the wedding and venue was from start to finish and how the staff were brilliant.
We could not have asked for a better wedding & it went above and beyond our expectations.
The perfect wedding day
AMAZING wedding venue
It is the most stunning venue - beautiful and atmospheric without being stuffy or impersonal. It has a warmth and friendliness with so many cosy nooks and crannies to be explored. Every single one of our guests (from Dubai, USA, Germany, France, New Zealand and uk) without any exceptions commented on the venue, and with a venue like this there is little you need to do to make everyone have a good time. We had our ceremony in the courtyard (the place that set me off in tears when I first visited!) , drinks and jazz group on the wordsworth lawn, dinner in the stunning hall and party in the games room, with sparklers and fire pits for marshmallows in the courtyard lit by fairy lights. It couldn't have been more magical.
But it's not just the venue that makes brinsop so special. The staff are so helpful and accommodating. I have heard so many horror stories from other brides who have had to deal with the past 2 years of covid delays, but despite no less than 4 date changes since our original date in July 2020, brinsop made the whole process easy and worry free and I cannot thank them enough for this. From buying an oval top table because I'd seen this at another venue and liked them, to sorting lighting for us when our lighting supplier went bankrupt due to covid, to recommending the most amazing other suppliers from photographers to cake makers to babysitters for our 1 year old twins, to providing fabulous food the night before, evening of and morning after the wedding, they did an AMAZING job.
I would 200% and without reservation recommend brinsop to anyone else looking for the most memorable and worry free wedding.
Look no further!!!
From the initial viewing to saying goodbye after the wedding the tentative, friendly nature of the staff did not dwindle!
Nothing is too much for the staff at this venue.
The initial viewing had me hooked with its warm friendly and family vibe. The Manor House and knot barn were warm and inviting, attention to detail is absolutely impeccable!! The dressing gowns, the loccitane products, the mood lighting and fresh house flower arrangements to the cake and fully stocked cupboards during the wedding to name a few!!! The viewing built suspense with every area and room available to get married in…the possibilities really are endless here!!!
The wedding was faultless! Despite changing a wedding coordinator a few weeks prior to our wedding (due to staff leaving completely unforeseen circumstance) Nadia our new coordinator was amazing! Nothing was too much trouble. She already appraised herself
With our wedding details and nothing was a miss! The venue is huge and despite this the cleaning is so impressive! All of our overnight guests were so blown away with the facilities as were the wedding guests who were wowed but the breathtaking building and surrounding moat. Having had the photos back the venue has really made these as each room and part of the grounds add a different aspect to the wedding.
Truly impressive all round and we have no criticism (even constructive!) it’s all amazing and we wish we could relive the whole experience over and over….thank you Brinsop for your family touch xxx
More magical than we ever imagined!
The entire team at Brinsop exceeded all expectations and the venue speaks for itself - big shout out to Alex in particular for making every single one of our requests a reality!
Having our guests stay with us and celebrate for the entire weekend just made the whole time that much more magical.
We will very likely come back for an anniversary 😊
Incredible day and thank you ever so much to Caity for everything she did including walking the dog several times and checking in on him ☺️ you’re an absolute credit to the venue.
More magical than we ever dreamed of ✨
It was so nice to be able to do the whole day in one location so no travelling but still have different areas for the different parts of the day.
