The best day of our lives!
Bryonie made us feel truly welcome, allowing us to meet suppliers at Holywell and visit the estate as often as we needed, she also allowed us to use a room in the family home for meetings with suppliers when the weather was bad. I don’t think there is any other venue out there that can make your special day this personal. This place couldn’t be further from the conveyor belt wedding venues around. The whole experience of planning and getting married at Holywell has been magnificent, I couldn’t imagine it would have turned out as perfect as it did. The whole day ran seamlessly thanks to Bryonie and her team who were there from start to finish to help make sure everything was sorted. Nothing was too much trouble, we were allowed to forage the woods on the Estate for ivy and greenery to decorate the tipi and had someone on hand all day to light all our candles when it got dark and monitor the fire. At the end of the night when it started to rain Bryonie and her team were there with umbrellas to walk our guests from the Tipi to the taxis. It’s difficult to put in to words how much we appreciated everything the Holywell team/family did for us especially Bryonie and to top it off we received a beautiful wedding gift and were allowed to take home a foraged tree stump used on the big day.Sent on 12/11/2019
We now look forward to returning to Holywell on the bluebell walk each year and reminisce about the best day of our lives!

The perfect partnership
From the moment we first met Bryonie and the Holywell Estate team, we knew we had found the perfect partnership. Our dream was to have an outdoors wedding and the Walled Garden was the perfect setting. It was a year in the making and our day unforgettable. The Holywell team went above and beyond expectation and we couldn't be more grateful.Sent on 18/05/2020

Bryonie and the Holywell team made our wedding day feel so special. It was such a perfect day thanks to all the staff who were wonderful in the lead up to our wedding day and on the day itself. Our family and friends commented on what a beautiful venue Holywell Estate was. Bryonie was approachable, supportive and such a great host. We felt that we could ask her for anything and nothing was to much trouble. The day ran so smoothly and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thanks to all at Holywell. We would recommend it highly.Sent on 05/09/2019
