    An excellent wedding venue and wonderful staff

    Charlotte and the team at Gilbert White's went over and above to make our day incredibly memorable. Leading up to the wedding Charlotte was always on hand to provide advice and assistance and was a great help on the wedding day. The food prepared by the inhouse caterers was also excellent.

    Our Perfect Day

    We cannot thank Charlotte and the team at Gilbert White’s enough for their approach to making our day exactly what we wanted. From the first time we arrived to view the venue, we knew that the history of the place and the surrounding natural environment was perfect for us. We were treated to a wonderful food tasting to get our menu right, as many visits to the venue as we needed to plan things, and easy, straightforward communication at all times. We were very lucky that we were able to maintain flexibility with our dates as well, since we had to postpone three times during the height of the pandemic. Ultimately, our small wedding was more than perfect and the relaxed yet professional approach at Gilbert White’s meant that our day felt intimate and special.
