    Beautiful venue not replicated to the management team

    Beautiful venue not replicated to the management team

    Apologies in advance for the long review.

    We got married here in July 2021. Unfortunately it had to be postponed due to covid. Our original date was August 2020. We were looking forward to our original date but as covid got a hold we had to change the date. This is where we really struggled with the business and their management team. We originally booked a height of summer Friday wedding date, when rescheduling with Hayne House the first dates we were given was a midweek February date??!!! We obviously refused this and then were given a midweek April. It felt like we had to go back and forth so much to get a summer wedding as per our original date. We settled for a Wednesday (not ideal but it was the best that the venue could offer), guidance from the government then come out in I believe September 2020 which said that any wedding that would have to be cancelled due to covid would get a full refund. We approached Hayne House to ask if this is something that they would consider as there was no guidance when ours had to be rescheduled, but they refused, saying that the covid pandemic is affecting us all and that they cannot offer a refund. We bit the bullet on this as essentially we wanted to get married, but we approached the venue again as there was a price difference between a midweek wedding and a weekend (Friday), the venue refused to give us the difference and actually had the cheek to say to us that they had wavered the postponement fee as a good will jesture. This was a really stressful time for us and my wife was really upset with it all, the back and forth via email with Helen was very frustrating even when I had asked to arrange phone call to speak about all of this. With 4 weeks to the wedding I finally managed to speak with Fleur, I gave my concerns but they were quickly shot down with the constant message of its been hard for them during the pandemic to which our reply was that its been hard for everybody, but yet still they did not budge on anything. The postponement fee being waived was the biggest kick in the teeth and was said multiple times when we discussed any price differences, to which we didn't get any money back. I even gave the option of the price difference being put behind the bar for all of our guests to enjoy but the best they could offer was a bottle of peroni for our guests as they arrived, even though we had arrival drinks in our package which were not served on the day! They believed and mentioned many times that they were being fair but it just seemed they were profiting off of the unfortunate events of the pandemic.

    We had the wedding and it was a wonderful day. The wedding venue is a stunning place its just very unfortunate that the stunning grounds is not replicated to the Hayne House management team. The staff on the day were absolutely amazing (Ellie especially and all the bar staff - thank you guys you deserve much better than what you get from this business)

    Hayne House's reply:

    Hi Christopher,
    Many thanks for your review, we're so sorry to hear you felt your experience was not upheld by the management team.
    We have had nothing but positive reviews from other couples on our dealing with pandemic so I'm sad to hear that you feel that you didn't receive this from us.
    I'm pleased to hear that your day was still wonderful and that Ellie and the staff all upheld your expectations for your wedding day.
    If you wish to discuss this further please don't hesitate to email us directly.
    Many thanks.

    A dream come true

    The most stunning venue with the loveliest most attentive staff. From day 1 Hayne House made me feel like they were only a phone call away - and they were! I couldn't have asked for a better team and their recommended suppliers didn't disappoint. The new Orangery was a dream and it gave me piece of mind knowing that I had a beautiful contingency plan should the weather not cooperate. Highly recommended.

    Hayne House's reply:

    Dear Matrina

    Many thanks for finding the time to write such a wonderful review you were a joy to 'work' with. We are so pleased and proud to have shared your beautiful day and your grand entrance into the Orangery was such fun and will stay with us for ever.

    Wishing you all the love and happiness in the world - do keep in touch

    Love from the whole team at Hayne House

    Absolutely perfect

    We can't thank Hayne House enough, everybody involved were absolutely amazing and went above and beyond to make our day special. Covid meant we had to change our date multiple times, Fleur and her team did their upmost to accommodate the changes and ensure we were happy. They were on hand whenever we needed them in the planning and run up to our wedding and made us feel organised The day ran so smoothly and we had the best day with our family and friends in this beautiful venue.
    Honestly cannot recommend them enough.

    Thank you thank you!!

    Hayne House was the first and only venue we needed to see! As soon as we got there we knew it was the one for us!! The team were so lovely, friendly and were happy to answer any and every question we had! The suppliers they recommended were amazing and our day was truly perfect! The Orangery was stunning, really needed very little decoration as it looks so perfect even bare, and all of our guests thought it was just amazing. Special shout out to Sam and Helen who were the key team members we spoke to as they were both amazing and such a joy to deal with!! Their in-house caterers Touchays were unbelievable - the food was just incredible, just a shame that we didn't get to eat more of it (as bride & groom you are mostly running around!) thank you so much to Hayne House for truly the best day ever!!!

    Can't thank you enough!

    My husband and I had our wedding day at Hayne House in September 2017 and we honestly couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! From the moment we went for our first consultation everyone was so welcoming and attentive, and were committed to helping us have a completely unique and special day. Hayne House were so accommodating in allowing us to have all the personal details we wanted for our wedding, and every single member of staff went above and beyond to make the day so incredible. On the day itself Becky and Kerry couldn't have been more attentive, and the catering and bar staff were fantastic at serving our many many Irish relatives! Everyone commented on how stunning the venue was, and the day was everything we wanted and more! We cannot thank everyone at Hayne House enough and would whole-heartedly recommend this to anyone as a wedding venue.

    Breathtaking fairytale venue

    My husband and I got married at Hayne House in August, it was the most magical day, the venue, stunning, light, carefree, relaxing and most importantly it took everyone's breath away. That's 120 people's breath stolen by our gorgeous venue. Many have said to me it is their fave wedding they have ever been to, largely to do with the venue.
    The venue is made stunning not just by the aesthetics but by the people. Sam and her team are the most lovely bunch of people I have ever met, and I adore they were apart of my day. They made planning easy and hiccups a blip on the radar. I love this venue, trust me go check it out! It's beyond worth it

    Hayne House's reply:

    Dear Maddie

    So sorry we have only just seen your review - what wonderful things to say and it is reciprocal - you, your husband and your daughter took our breath away! What a wonderful day, thanks so much for sharing! We shall cherish your memories forever.
