My daughter held her wedding at Leez Priory this week. The whole experience from the initial planning to the day itself has been amazing. The staff (especially Catherine our wedding planner) worked incredibly hard to ensure that everything went smoothly and everyone had a great time. Thoroughly recommend the Leez as a wedding venue!

A proud and very happy parent
Venue Service

By Sue Swan, on 12 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2019

Just wanted to say thank you to all those involved with our daughter Anna's wedding to Adam on Sunday last. Your staff were fabulous ensuring that everything went perfectly. The food was great and portions were large enough for the largest appetite. Keeley ensured we were all in the correct place at the correct time. Every guest I have spoken to so far has said what a fantastic time they had, partly due to the happy couple but also due to the way you looked after everyone ensuring they all had plenty to eat and drink, that the meals were served quickly, drinks were topped up regularly etc etc The food in the evening was plentiful and the disco was great. Thanks again A proud and very happy parent

The food was delicious
Venue Service

By Scott & Kim, on 04 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Feb 2019

What a day! Everyone at Leez made the whole planning journey an absolute pleasure and looked after us all on the way, including the last minute dietary requirement, which necessitated a complete meal change for one guest, which was dealt with so smoothly. The food was delicious, our guests were really impressed with the quality, and the whole day ran perfectly. Big thank you to Kathryn, our coordinator, who was friendly, welcoming and so efficient.

Everything and more than we ever dreamed
Venue Service

By James & Jasmine, on 04 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Feb 2019

Kathryn, we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU! To your team and especially to you, our day at Leez was everything and more than we ever dreamt it would be. The venue looked amazing, all the staff were brilliant, the food was really tasty, and the drinks were the main reason for our sore heads the next day! We would like to especially thank you, you were brilliant, you made the whole experience as special as we had hoped, from our initial meetings with you organising all the menus to the day itself, nothing was to much trouble, accommodating our Ushers with their unique sense of humour (Karen!) to making sure that the day ran without a hitch. You. Where. The. Best! Please extend our thanks to your team and we will definitely be pointing future brides and grooms towards Leez Priory!

The grounds of Leez priory are absolutely stunning
Venue Service

By Billy & Zoe, on 05 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 10 Feb 2019

We recently got married at Leez and it was the wedding of my dreams. It was perfect in every way, Charlotte was our wedding planner and she was amazing. She was always on hand and ensured our day ran smoothly. Me and my bridal party stayed at the fisherman’s cottage the night before the big day, we were welcomed with breakfast on the morning of our wedding which was the perfect start. The grounds of Leez priory are absolutely stunning, it really is a dream venue! We had our ceremony in the tower and it was perfect we then followed with the wedding breakfast in the great hall and it looked absolutely beautiful. The food also tasted amazing. We stayed in the rooms on the night of our wedding and it was the perfect finish to a perfect day. The staff were so welcoming and friendly throughout the whole of our day, there DJ was also amazing! Leez truly is a spectacular venue and thank you to each and everyone of you for making our wedding day as special as it was!x
