    The Most Perfect Wedding Venue

    We have a very personal connection to this place. Brockholes was the first day out we did as a couple! This place is so beautiful we shared our love of photography whilst sitting at the river bank. We loved that day so much we came back on the day we got officially together! Now we came back on the first day as husband and wife just last week!
    When we were looking for our wedding venue we just knew Brockholes was for us. Along with the personal connection I had a vision of our wedding in this place. The architecture of the building inspired my decor which was eco and DIY themed.
    Throughout our experience during the build up the staff were very helpful and flexible especially during these difficult times during this pandemic. Unfortunately we too had to postpone our wedding as a result of lockdown 3. But we’re so grateful on their flexibility and hassle free rearrangement towards us. We didn’t have any extra charges or loose any money. Which I know how very fortunate we are as I’m aware other couples haven’t been so fortunate in this difficult situations with other suppliers.
    When it came to our big day it turned out even better than we imagined! The atmosphere the whole day was spectacular! Despite the great British summer we still embraced the day whatever the weather. Overall I would like to thank the staff, Caroline our wedding coordinator, Steven catering manager and the team that helped us prepare and set up for our big day. You all did a fantastic job to make our day run smoothly and also make it special!
    I’m so happy with the way our wedding day turned out and also the money we put in to pay goes back into the nature reserve.
