We could not have had a more perfect wedding at Buckland Hall. From the planning to the big day and finishing up at the end, the whole process was fun and relaxed and we were fully supported by the wonderful staff. The food is amazing and having the whole weekend at the venue is wonderful. Many guests got to know each other on Friday, so on the big day there was a lovely relaxed and familiar atmosphere. The venue is beautiful, and you can use and decorate it as you like, so it fits your ideas exactly. And the surroundings are stunning.
I don’t feel I am exaggerating to say that everything was perfect. We were both so happy, and didn’t have to worry about anything. It all happened around us seamlessly whilst we enjoyed ourselves.

What can I say what a truly amazing venue to get married..... We had the entire weekend exclusively for all friends and family, that alone made for such a special occasion and memories for everyone. All the staff at Buckland were amazing, nothing ever was too much and whatever we required they made sure they could accommodate us, the venue and surrounding gardens are breathtaking and make for the most stunning pictures. Food was amazing, so many options coupled with tasting sessions and a fantastic buffet. Our night finished songs with family and friends around the campfire in the gardens...... What a venue..... What a weekend!
A brilliant wedding venue
By Peter and Helen Williams, on 14 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017
We would highly recommend Buckland Hall as a wedding venue. It’s quite unique and the location is spectacular. Laura and the team were professional, relaxed and very accommodating to all our requests. The staff manage to create a very friendly and personal atmosphere. Many of our guests, who stayed over the weekend, felt they were at a private country house party and without exception, all our guests were highly complimentary of the venue, service and standard of catering. The wedding breakfast food was superb . Any sceptical meat eaters were soon won over by the quality of the vegetarian fayre. We had about 145 guests to our wedding which did not phase the staff at all, the service during the wedding breakfast was excellent and all staff were friendly and pleasant.
Thank you for making our wedding so special and very memorable.

Buckland Hall was the perfect venue for our wedding. With exclusive access to the stunning grounds for our guest over the wedding days, and the building all to ourselves, allowing all unacquainted guests to get to know each other, and making the perfect, relaxed atmosphere.
Throughout the planning and up to our leaving, all the staff were kind and helpful, attending to everything we needed them for, from rearranging rooms during the day to calming nerves, and just being genuinely lovely people.
Every meal was spectacular, even non-vegetarian guests were very complimentary.
Like I said the perfect venue for our wedding. Thank you to everyone there who helped make our time there what it was.

Buckland Hall is a very special place. The team made the planning a stress-free, fun process. Their "can do" attitude gave you endless possibilities to make your wedding your own. Even though grand, Buckland has a very homely, easy going feel to it. The food is absolutely fantastic and the beautiful Hall and gardens are a photographer's dream. On the wedding weekend the staff were so helpful in looking after us and our guests and calmly keeping things ticking along, that you could just relax and enjoy it. We wouldn't have wanted to get married anywhere else and we wish we could do it all over again!

Ross and Rachel got married on the Saturday, and the whole ceremony, food, music, cake - everything - was fantastic. This was because Buckland gives you the freedom to do everything yourselves (except the vegetarian cooking, which is amazing) and the staff don't hassle you - just quietly help with anything you ask them. We (i.e. mainly Rachel) decorated the rooms with flowers and ivy ourselves, arranged a brass band and a great group for the evening. But this was more than a wedding. Three families (Ross's, Rachel's and my wife's), several of whom had never met each other, were in and around that wonderful mansion (with 29 bedrooms) for the whole weekend. We climbed a nearby mountain, went for walks, had a children's treasure hunt, drank lots, and got to know each other at our leisure. I'm sure it will lead to many more family get-togethers in the future. I don't usually write reviews, but happy to do one for Buckland - they are exceptional.
Breathtaking, Spectacular and Faultless
By Thomas Few, on 11 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017
On behalf of myself and Alice, I'd like to thank Buckland Hall for making our wedding day so special. Not only are the venue and grounds truly breathtaking, the food was spectacular and the level of service we received both before and during our wedding weekend was absolutely faultless. We were made to feel relaxed and at home from the moment we arrived. The attention to detail and organisation delivered by Jacqui and the rest of the team was superb. The entire day ran completely seamlessly and we can't thank everyone at Buckland Hall enough for their efforts. Every request we made was no problem at all for the professional and courteous staff who catered to our every need. While some people may be put off with Buckland Hall's vegetarian policy, myself and every other meat eating guest at the wedding was blown away by the standard of the food. The soups, lasagne, pies, buffet, desserts and breakfast were unanimously excellent. The bar was well stocked and remained open well into the night. The rooms are large and comfortable, with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. We were on a tight schedule with our timings, but our fears were misplaced as the staff ran the day like clockwork. We will be forever grateful to Buckland Hall and it's staff for making our wedding truly unforgettable. I would recommend the venue without hesitation, the only regret we have is that it is now all over.

From start to finish the staff at Buckland Hall were absolutely amazing. They helped us with timings, decoration ideas, food choices and so much more. They were always patient with us, especially considering we were pretty clueless about the whole process!
The food was FANTASTIC! We opted for a fully vegan menu and our (almost entirely) non-vegan guests raved about the food. One of us is severely allergic to dairy and all of the staff were so accommodating and really went out of their way to help us. The venue is absolutely stunning and it was such a treat to be able to have the whole venue for the weekend - it really added to our experience and helped to prolong the festivities.
I could not recomment Buckland Hall enough - the venue, food, staff and grounds are just perfect and there is no doubt that you will have an amazing time here :)
Best venue, staff and service! The Perfect Wedding
By Devaki, on 11 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Jun 2017
We got married at Buckland Hall June 2017. It was the best experience. The staff were incredible and service was perfect. They all really looked after us. Buckland Hall made sure our wedding was calm and stress free. It was the wedding of our dreams. I would recommend this venue to all! You can get the whole venue to yourself and your wedding party for the weekend.
Perfect venue for our wedding!
By Charis Kozel, on 13 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 18 May 2017
I have nothing but good things to say about Buckland Hall and its staff. They were incredibly welcoming, friendly and professional from our first meeting with them to the wedding itself. This venue was perfect for us - not only did they make the entire thing vegan for us and our guests (down to soy milk for tea in our room!), it allowed us a few days together with our guests (several of whom had travelled from America) in a beautiful country house we could call our own for a short while! Having the place to yourself is truly special, the hall is set in such gorgeous scenery and it was wonderful to come down during a spare moment and catch up with your cousins sitting by the fire, or your friends playing pool.
I couldn't think of a better venue for our wedding. We've also inspired my sister-in-law, who has decided a 3 day wedding is the only way to go! A big thank you to all the team at Buckland Hall, you were fantastic.
Cant recommend enough

Thank you all so much for an incredible couple of days, every single person working at Buckland were so approachable and would do anything for us! Can't recommend enough! Xxx
