Couldn’t thank you enough xx

Amazing venue, food and people!

Grangefields is an absolutely beautiful venue, the food is delicious (plus you get plenty of it) and the friendly staff go above and beyond to make sure they give you the day you’ve always wished for. The online portal makes the planning process so straightforward. Along with this you have an online chat which makes it really easy to send any questions you have day or night. The staff are always quick to respond and are very accommodating. We cannot recommend Grangefields enough, they gave us the wedding we had dreamed of.

Exceeded all expectations

Our wedding day with Grangefields was absolutely perfect, we could not be any happier with how the day went - everything was incredible, from the food and drink, to the service, the support from the day and night managers, the gorgeousness of the venue..everything!
We have had so many glowing reviews of the day from our guests, so many people said it was the best wedding food they had ever eaten, incredible service from staff and the venue itself (particularly the ceremony room!) blew everyone away.
I can’t thank the Grangefields team enough, particularly Jess, Lucy and Tim, for all their help in the planning process, answering all our questions very promptly along the way and giving us the best day of our lives, we want to do it all again!! Can’t wait to get all our photos and re-live it all.
Thanks so much again, Lotty & Dan xxx

Amazing. Hands down, the best wedding venue

We got married at Grangefields in July 2023 and can quite honestly say it was the best day of our lives. The venue is absolutely stunning, but it’s the amazing team that really make this place so special.

Are you honestly still debating whether or not to get married at Grangefields? Book it already!

Indian Wedding

We had the most wonderful wedding day all thanks to Tim and his team at Grangefields. The venue was beautiful, the team was FAB and the wedding was all we wanted it to be! Everything and everyone were so amazingly wonderful- what a dream they are !
Tim was the most amazing wedding planner and accommodated all our needs as we had a very different setup due to the wedding being a traditional Indian wedding.
Everything from the food, the decor, the staff, and the venue was perfect!! The wedding day would not have been what it was without our Grangefeild team and we will be eternally grateful !

The most perfect wedding venue!

Andrew and I became Mr & Mrs Price at Grangefields on 2nd July 2023. We looked at a lot of venues but this one stood out to us immediately. Not only was the venue beautiful, with the show kitchen and the almost "chapel" vibes in the barn (it was a none-religious ceremony, but we wanted somewhere that felt spiritual), but the staff were warm and welcoming in a way we didnt experience anywhere else. They were in communication with us the whole duration (15 months) and were happy to answer all of our questing, both big and small. On the day, they were attentive and always nearby whenever required, and helped quide us through the day. They were basically providing us with wedding planners, without inflating the price to include this. They are experts in their field. We would recommend Grangefields in a heartbeat and really feel like they took the stress out of the planning process for us.

The feast menu was absolutely to-die-for, with multiple guests telling us it was the best English wedding they had been to, with the best food without doubt. The external grounds were pristine, the lighting was perfect inside and out, creating a lovely ambience throughout the whole day.

A huge thank you to the whole Grangefields team, and a special shout out to Lucy for being our main liaison - she was brilliant!

If we could give 10 stars we would!

The best day ever! We cannot fault the staff at Grangefields. The first time we looked around they weren't pushy about booking with them. We knew as soon as we arrived this would be our venue, its beautiful. All through the planning process they were contactable through the online portal with any questions we had. The day was prefect. We dropped things off on the morning and they made the rooms look amazing with the décor I had provided. On the day it was the little things for us, a member of staff was assigned to us to make sure we always had drinks and canapes on hand. When we went to have photos I asked Lucy where was and before I knew it she was there with fresh canapes for us to enjoy. The guests were blown away by the venue and the food (especially the roast potato's!) No one will leave hungry. We had pizzas in the evening, some guests had dietary requirements which wasn't a problem as the pizzas are made fresh on site. They boxed up for people to take home with them. Massive thank you to all the staff on our big day. Highly recommend booking a feast night to try their food, you will not be disappointed. If we could give more stars we would! They deserve 10! Special mention to Lucy & Andrea who were the managers for the day. They really did go above and beyond for us on the day we can not thank you enough for making our day so special. Everything ran smoothly thanks to them. See you soon for a feast night. Mr and Mrs Brady

Charlotte & Joshua

When we decided to start planning our wedding, Grangefields wasn’t yet finished being built and my gut told me I had to wait to see this venue - I was absolutely right!! Grangefields is the most amazing venue and our wedding day was everything we dreamed of and more. From the planning, to the build up, the ceremony and everything else throughout our day was just perfect! Holly, Haley and the bar staff were all amazing, our guests kept complimenting how lovely they all were. Thank you again to all of the team at Grangefields for giving us the most incredible Wedding Day xx

An utterly perfect day

Title says it all, really. It has been 4 days since our wedding and we have said about 100x since that it really could not have gone any better. Even the weather turned up - I am sure, somehow, Grangefields arranged for that, too.

Every bit of the day went perfectly. Holly and Hayley on the day (daytime and evening management for the event) were exceptional. They were welcoming, supportive, flexible and committed to the occasion and ensured Emma and I had the most memorable experience.

Having attended a wedding at a Cripps venue (Tithe Barn) in 2019, we knew what to expect from the food and that was partially the reason we arranged for our wedding to be held at this Cripps venue. My brother (a chef) has since said the Rotisserie Chicken, Brownie and Canape's are the best wedding food he has ever had - others had similar comments.

We were catered for across the day - I can barely remember any supplier or guest type hiccups but whenever there was, the venue dealt with it to ensure Emma and I were able to concentrate on the important stuff.

Lots of lovely comments from guests since. Truly, truly a great day.

All the thanks and appreciation from Emma and I, would recommend to absolutely anyone. Thank you Grangefields team.

Stunning Venue

From the moment we viewed Grangefields on our initial visit, we knew it was just the place for our June 2023 wedding. We were absolutely blown away by the stunning setting of the barn and all its additional features. We’ve had no end of comments from our guests about how amazing it was to be there, we couldn’t agree more. Our photographer also said it was one of her new favourite venues to shoot, it was her first time visiting and she hopes to be invited back!

From start to finish, the staff have been incredible. Each staff member is clearly devoted to making a wedding day run without fault and they all clearly love what they do, this made us so comfortable and let us fully relax during the day.

Special mention goes to Lucy who oversaw the venue being set up for the day and couldn’t do enough for us throughout. We are so grateful to you!

To sum it up, this venue was absolutely perfect for us, and we would tell anyone to book it if they were considering it! We can only hope that a friend or family member books with you so we can be invited back! Thank you Grangefields!

Unbelievably good

My wife and I held our wedding reception at Grangefields on 30th May 2023. They exceeded our expectations in everything! We felt we received exceptional value for money and every single guest was treated like royalty for the day. They were flexible, accomodating, supportive, encouraging and stress reducing to the highest degree! The canapés, main meal and evening pizza's were outstanding, with the roast potatoes being a particular favourite of the guests! You also get so much space to work with including 3 amazing rooms and a vast courtyard. We could not speak more highly of Tim, Lucy, Jess and Hayley for helping in the build up and for managing our event on the day. 10/10, 5/5, whatever rating system you choose, they top it!!
