    A beautiful venue

    We had an amazing day at Elizabeth Gaskells house. The value for money was unbelievable and the experience did not feel cheaper than any other wedding I have been to.
    The venue is beautiful and has gorgeous period features and furniture.
    Everything in the run up was very smooth, even with a change of wedding coordinator mid way through or planning- we were never left feeling forgotten about and both Ellen and then Katie were so helpful and kind to us.
    We were able to go to the venue the day before the wedding to set up, at no extra cost and when we went to tear down the following day- Katie and her team had already cleared everything and had it ready to go in boxes for us.
    We had an amazing day and are so thankful to the entire team at the house.

    Amazing venue for an amazing day

    The venue was a 'yes' as soon as we walked in the door. Beautiful period house and decor. We were looked after brilliantly by Katie, the wedding organiser, both before and during the day of the wedding. We felt lucky to celebrate with Katie and two of the volunteers (Cath and Jane? Sorry ladies, my mind was elsewhere!) who were responsive, friendly and kind. We had the best time. I recommend 100%.

    Relaxed Perfect Wedding!

    Got married here in Oct 21. Had the perfect relaxed day we wanted. The house is a beautiful setting and it was great we could have afternoon tea after the ceremony. All our guests commented on how lovely, unusual and memorable our wedding was.
