Hayne House is absolutely amazing

I fell in love with Hayne House the second we went to our viewing and it only got better from there.
The pre-wedding process with the team at Hayne House was amazing, they were so accommodating and responsive and had answers to all the question that my Type A Bride brain threw at them. Throughout the planning process they were fabulous and it was so nice to find a venue where we could both get ready on site in the morning.
On the day, the Hayne House team (Beth) were absolutely fabulous. Beth kept me calm all morning and made me feel like we were in safe hands. We DIY-ed all our decor and Beth asked my input on the set up before the Groom turned up which really put me at ease. Beth also managed our ceremony music on a phone and it just made me feel so comfortable. Pre-aisle walk, Beth really helped me understand what would happen and really set my nerves at ease. The whole team were incredible and they made our day so so perfect.
We couldn't have asked for more. The venue is stunning and the team are amazing! I would recommend Hayne House to absolutely anyone! We also really loved the sustainability initiative, as we're both conscious of that, and that's what initially made us look at Hayne House. 100000% would recommend!

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)

Amazing in every way!

Hayne House is a beautiful wedding venue with a amazing team of staff! They supported us every step of the way and made sure everything ran smoothly on the day. They go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect. I would especially recommend Hayne House if you have children as they are free to play the entire day! We had so many comments from guests about how beautiful the venue is and how amazing the staff are.

Wedding- June 2023- would do it all again at Hayne House!

Had our wedding at Hayne House in June 2023- cannot fault a single thing with the team, services or facilities. Am so glad we chose Hayne House and would recommend to anyone wanting to get married stress free with a fantastic team who truly take the pressure off of wedding planning and are extremely flexible with requests and adjustments. Very good value for money and honestly all expectations were exceeded! Everything was well thought of and planned, there were no surprises and communication was excellent from the moment we made initial contact. Was such a special and memorable day due to the efforts and high quality of care and services at Hayne House.

Highly recommended

Hayne house from start to finish delivered an exceptional package with friendly, helpful staff. The venue catered for an excellent wedding day. Communication from Hayne House was always prompt and helpful, no request or question was too big or too small. The staff on the day and evening were calming and reassuring on a day that would normally very stressful, which alleviated a lot of anxiety and stress. Their calmness and knowledge of the job made the day run so smoothly and was perfect in every way possible.

Thank you Hayne House staff for everything you did.

Excellent customer service

All members of the coordinating team were fantastic. We had Ella on the day who we had not met before but she was well versed in what we wanted to happen on the day and was incredibly competent. The venue speaks for itself the second you walk onto the grounds but the level of customer service provided by the staff was phenomenal, from the wedding coordinator on the day to the staff behind the scenes who set up the room to the bar staff in the evening. Our day would not have been as special as it was without everyone being to helpful and positive.

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.

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.

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!!!
