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!

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.
