    Best Wedding Ever

    We booked our wedding in January 2021 for June 2022 so our initial viewing was a virtual viewing but we loved the venue and knew we would be in good hands right from the start. However, had we not liked it once lockdown lifted and we were able to see it in person, they said we could get our deposit back so we found this flexibility reassuring given the unprecedented times we were in. Obviously that was not the case and we saw how beautiful the venue was and loved it. We were particularly drawn to the practical layout as there was plenty of space and the day flowed well as we weren't just in one room all day.

    The staff are brilliant and we had a planning meeting about 9 months beforehand where we planned out everything and got to ask all our questions. In the meantime, we were able to send messages through Cordero, which worked well as usually I would send messages late at night and get a reply first thing the following morning. On the day, we didn't have to worry about a thing as the staff were so organised - thank you to Jodie and Amanda who looked after us on our wedding day.

    The food was absolutely incredible! Definitely the best wedding food we have had and many of our guests said the same thing. We would definitely recommend going to a Feast Night at the venue before you make your choices as we got to try loads of food and wine and it was all delicious.

    I did wonder if, given the number of weddings at Hazel Gap, ours would not feel very personal but the staff allowed us to include the little touches we wanted to make it our own and it ended up being the most special day and felt very 'us'. In fact, quite a few people said it was the best wedding they had ever been to so we are very thankful to the Hazel Gap team as we agree, it was the best!

    Perfect venue, perfect day

    Hazel Gap helped us plan our perfect wedding. The venue was exquisite, all our guests commented on how every part of it was beautiful. They were very attentive via the Cordero messaging (particularly leading up to the wedding with last minute stresses) and got back to us usually within a few hours. During the wedding, they helped us feel relaxed and organised the day for us so we didn’t have to worry. In particular, Jodie helped make our day so perfect. The food was delicious and we had great wine (which wasn’t all drank so they refunded us for it- very much appreciated!) The indoor and outdoor package available is well worth the money, it helped set the ambiance- particularly for the night and just illuminated the already beautiful venue and showed off its excellence. Hazel Gap allowed us to choose and change all aspects of the day so it was exactly how we wanted, being perf os alises to us (our ski theme) and guided us where we needed it. We cannot thank them enough for allowing us to celebrate our special, unforgettable day there, it was truly magical. If only we could do it all again, we’d choose to get married at Hazel Gap Barn again in a heart beat.

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Thank you so much for your really lovely review. We are so pleased that we were able to help plan your day with you both and that on the day itself you felt relaxed. We will pass your thanks onto all those who worked, in particular to Jodie. Your kind words about our team and our venue are very much appreciated. We wish you both all the very best for the future from us all here at Hazel Gap.

    Hazel Gap Barn exceeded our expectations (twice)! The venue’s beauty speaks for itself, and the team’s organisation, attention to detail and execution on the day were outstanding. On both occasions, our wedding was perfect! Would highly recommend.

    Superb Venue, Planners & Staff.

    Our day was superb from start to finish, the venue is amazing, the people there are amazing and we were properly looked from arriving, through ceremony, during photos and into the evening - the little touches made an already important and amazing day that little bit extra special.

    Special mention to our Front of House manager for the day Emily who is an absolute credit to Hazel Gap Barn and couldn't have done anymore than she did.

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. We are so pleased to hear you all had such a great day with us from start to finish and that we were able to make your day extra special! We will ensure your thanks are passed onto Emily and the rest of the team. With our very best wishes to you both for the future x

    The best day ever!

    We got married at Hazel Gap Barn on 30.12.2021 after already postponing from December 2020. The venue were excellent at rescheduling our big day, everything was done with such ease and was totally stress free.

    When originally looking at venues Hazel Gap Barn stood out miles above the rest that we looked at, it’s absolutely beautiful!

    When our big day arrived the whole day ran smoothly Beth, Chris & the team were fantastic! And the food was amazing! We had so many lovely comments from our guests on the venue, staff and food :)

    If you’re thinking of booking Hazel Gap Barn as your wedding venue I would not hesitate, we had the most magical day and we wish we could do it all over again!

    Outstanding

    The team at Hazel Gap are some of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of dealing with.

    Navigating planning (and postponing) a wedding during a pandemic was challenging to say the least. The team were always calm, kind, professional and helpful.

    Hazel Gap is a truly stunning venue. Beautifully presented and well maintained.

    The food and wine are next level, not just “for a wedding venue” but for a restaurant too.

    If you’re considering Hazel Gap, please make the trip there to see it in real life and meet the team. It will exceed expectations, I promise.

    Thank you so much to Beth and Chris who made our day run so perfectly and all the staff who helped make our wedding the day of our dreams!

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Hi Jessica,

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review and your very kind comments about our team. It was our pleasure to be a part of your special day and we are so pleased that you had a great time with us.

    Exceptional

    We had our dream wedding at Hazel Gap on 26.10.21. From our initial visit to the barn, right through to our wedding day, the whole team have been just perfect. The journey was so smooth and the communication through Cordero was exceptional. No question was too much. All of our guests commented on how stunning the barn was. The food was divine and multiple guests said it was the best wedding meal they have ever eaten! Call us bias, but the atmosphere at Hazel Gap is second to none - it is the most magical venue and there is not one single thing we would have changed. Much love to the Hazel Gap team - you made our dream wedding a reality. Mr & Mrs Bartlett. xx

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Mr and Mrs Bartlett,

    What a lovely review to read! Thank you for taking the time to write to us - your comments are so kind and we are so pleased that you enjoyed the whole journey with us. We will also pass on your comments to the kitchen team - we are pleased to hear your guests enjoyed the food!

    Wishing you all the very best for the future from us all here at Hazel Gap Barn. x

    Way beyond perfect

    We can’t thank Hazel Gap enough for the day they put on for us. Everything was flawless from start to finish and the team went above and beyond to make our day as perfect as everyone deserves their wedding day to be.
    The one standout moment was how they handled a situation for us where our cake person let us down and failed to let us know, only to not turn up on the day. The staff at hazel gap responded to this situation incredibly quickly and efficiently to ensure we didn’t go without a cake on our wedding day by sourcing a few cakes themselves… which were equally as stunning given they turned this around so quickly!
    All the staff at hazel gap contributed amazingly to our day and we honestly can’t say thank you enough for how perfect our day was. A special mention to Felicity who organised the ceremony and the cake replacement and to Tim who made our night time an absolute party, two great people.

    Hazel Gap Barn's reply:

    Hi Jordan and Megan, Thank you so much for your lovely review! We are so pleased you had a great day with us and it was our absolute pleasure to ensure you had a very special day. We wish you both all the very best for the future from us all here at Hazel Gap Barn! xx

    This venue is beautiful as you can see but the staff are the best so easy to approach while planning and on the day, nothing was too much hassle for them. Everything flowed really well but didn’t feel like you was to a time line, we had a supplier problem they dealt with everything perfect didn’t bother us with anything! Really attentive staff realised we was In a queue for bar didn’t let us wait.

    Couldn’t of had a better venue

    Our wedding was postponed from 11th Aug 2020 to 25th May 2021 and we couldn’t of went with a better supplier. Emily, Beth and the Hazel Gap Barn team have been absolutely amazing to us, so friendly especially with the worries of wedding having to be postponed, you hear so many horror postponed wedding stories but we have been so well looked after by the team. Not once did they take advantage of our wedding during the pandemic, if anything all they wanted to do was to help us deliver a really wonderful wedding and making it as memorable as they could for us even with the restrictions included of 30 people and COVID rules applied. We had so much fun on our big day, we really enjoyed it, the staff and the service is perfection. This venue was the first place we had chosen, we have been to 2 Cripps & Co venues before for weddings and knew the food was always so good. As soon as I walked into this venue, it was so breath taking the moment we turned the car in, soon as we walked in for the first 30secs, we fell in love as it’s such a beautiful venue and we knew it was the one. We booked it straight away on the same day and knew we didn’t have to look elsewhere. The layout of the venue flows so well, so spacious, the ceremony hall is so peaceful, the courtyard is gorgeous and the back is garden gives you such a magical feeling. On our day, we really enjoyed our food and if you are a fan of dessert, the crumble was the best I have ever eaten! You cannot go wrong, everyone loved it so much, we all had seconds. Thank you so much again to Emily, Beth and HGB team for making us feel so welcomed and for smashing it! We wish you all the very best.
