Magical Venue and Great Team

The Cress Lake team are young, enthusiastic and caring. As a Wedding Supplier I have been delighted to work with them at their beautiful venue on the outskirts of Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire.
The venue has a beautiful lakeside spot for ceremonies, but there are also endless possibilities for photos, including an over lake swing and a rowing boat. The setting for the reception TiPi is stunning, particularly when lit for an evening celebration.
When you are planning your wedding you want to feel listened to and cared for and this is exactly what the Cress Lake team promise to deliver.
Cress Lake has the perfect combination of a wonderful venue and team. If I was getting married this would be the perfect venue.

The best day ever!

The team here couldn’t do enough, with the attention to detail being amazing! The stunning setting gave so many beautiful picture opportunities, and our guests commented repeatedly how perfect everything was. No stone was left unturned and every blade of grass looked like it had been attended to. I am so glad we decided to get married at Cress Lakes as the team and venue was perfect from start to finish!
