Gorgeous venue

Gorgeous venue! However, we had a power outage on couple of occasions (during viewing and on the actual day of the wedding). Apart from this, we had a lovely wedding, venue was highly complimented by guests. The power cut took some of our precious time (generator wasn't used soon enough), which delayed the programme, canap茅s and wedding breakfast/dinner, ended up actually being served in the dark. Luckily, our guests still enjoyed themselves, and were understanding. Staff remained otherwise friendly and professional. Communicated well with us throughout. They are always happy to answer questions no matter how many times you've asked them 馃槉

Fairytale venue

We had our magical day at Highley Manor on the 8th September 2023, and I honestly couldn鈥檛 recommend this venue enough. Our wedding Coordinator Gemma was an angel and deserves the highest praise, from the moment she first introduced herself as our coordinator she took a real invested interest in myself and my now husband, our story on how we met, got engaged our interests and we truly bonded. Every meeting was met with big hugs, she is truly an amazing human! On the day she took care of everything we did not have to lift a finger I was fully prepared and ready to be mucking in but it was all helped out of my car and as long as I explained where things needed to go the team took care of everything they were superstars between them and mulberry events who decorated our wedding the whole wedding was magical.
Gemma was on hand all day with water stations and fans due to the heatwave and nothing was too much trouble.
I honestly could not thank you all enough for making our day so special on behalf of myself and my husband thank you Gemma and the team!

Stunning wedding venue!

We had our wedding in Highley Manor in April this year and everyone loved the place. The staff from the planning up to the wedding day were very approachable and helpful. They would respond quickly to your queries and you don't feel pressured at all as they are highly organised in coordinating.

The food was absolutely delicious, and I guess that was important to us because the guests would always remember the food.

I commend all the staff for an excellent service!

An amazing day with a few speed bumps

When we first saw Highley Manor we knew immediately we wanted to get married there. Once the money was sent we found it extremely difficult to get in touch with them as no emails were replied to and no one answered the phone for some time. Eventually we did get responses but we found them to be not as flexible as we would have liked in certain areas. The day itself was incredible, our wedding coordinator was amazing on the day, very attentive and made the day run smoothly. Then the evening came and after the coordinator went home everything seemed to go down hill. Our guests were told they could only drink either wine or beer as the bar staff didn鈥檛 have time to serve them, the bar staff didn鈥檛 stick to the house rules that we had set so the tab went extremely quickly and what鈥檚 more, they didn鈥檛 even know the brides name when people asked for drinks for her. The rooms were not what we were shown when we walked around the venue and certainly not what you would expect to get for the money that was paid as they were cold and falling apart. Obviously the day itself was amazing but when hearing stories from family members after the event of how disappointed they were, it鈥檚 always going to leave a sour taste in your mouth. We have raised these concerns with Highley Manor but unfortunately they just confirmed the issues back to us without telling us what they will be doing to resolve them in the future and make sure they don鈥檛 happen again. We were never after any sort of compensation, we just wanted to know another couple would not have the same issues we did.

A perfect wedding venue

My partner and I got married at Highley Manor a few weeks ago and it was absolutely perfect.

The team were great at helping me organise the day and were fantastic and ensuing the day ran smoothly and all guests were catered for.

The venue were really accommodating of us wanting to use a mini golf course and helped us to plan the day around it.

The food was outstanding and there was a great choice of drinks at the bar for everyone to enjoy throughout the day.

Having the rooms to stay at Highley is great after a night of dancing and ensures that everyone is able to relax and slip off to bed whenever they want.

Cannot recommend Highley and the team enough for their part in making our day so special.

The perfect venue

We came across Highley Manor on facebook, and we are so happy we did! From start to finish the team at the venue have been so helpful, nothing has been too much, and the day was perfect. We moved our ceremony outside last minute as we had good weather, and the team moved everything around with no stress to us at all. We worked with Molly (coordinator) and she was amazing! Nothing was too much in the lead up or on the day, she was so professional and also very friendly and approachable (which is great when you have 1000's of questions!). We can't recommend the venue and the team at Highley Manor enough, we had the perfect wedding day.
