A wonderful venue
Venue Service

By Liz and Mike Calvert, on 21 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jan 2018

We have just returned home from Leez Priory following the wedding of two very dear friends. We had a fabulous time, nothing was missing, food, ceremony, ambiance, care and attention to every detail. The wedding meal was excellent....an amazing day. Well done all of you!

Simply Perfect!!!
Venue Service

By Helen & Mick, on 02 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2017

Wedding plans began back in January 2017 and the first job was to choose the venue. Our intention was to spend a series of weekends scouring the country for the ideal spot, however after spending an afternoon at Leez Priory our search was complete. From minute one the staff, led by Christie, were fantastic and could not have been more helpful. The day ran so smoothly and we are still getting compliments on how good the wedding was. If you are unsure on a venue just pick this one!!!

Thank you so much Helen & Mick for such a lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to host your special day and we wish you every happiness for the future.

Had my wedding here at Leez yesterday (14/04/13) and it was better than I could of image!! Food was great,venue, grounds & views of the grounds are fanatic!! I was relaxed comfortable and very happy! The in house manager Tracy Locke was so great & helpfully we can't not fault her at all. I stayed at the fishermans cottage the night before and again everything about that was great!! Lucky for us the weather turned better gorgeous in fact, and all the guests had a great time also and kept commenting on how beautiful Leez is!! Me and my husband chose wisely on the venue & had our prefect wedding day... Couldn't thanx Tracy & Leez enough

20th October 2012
Venue Service

By Debbie, on 26 Dec 2012

We got married here on the 20th of October, and couldn't fault it. The food was spot on, the service was great and the location was breath taking. Our guests were blown away with the venue, the food and the atmosphere - a lot of them stating it was the best wedding they had ever been to. Not only do you have the lovely views of the property, you have the added bonus of a small tower that used to be a Monastery years ago. You can get married under it or in it if you wish. We decided we were going to get married in it as we were only having a small ceremony 40 guests, it was a lovely intimate ceremony. All in all it was a wonderful day and if we could do it all over again we would :)

Our day could not have been more perfect and I know our guests have already been making enquiries for their own future weddings!

So beautiful!
Venue Service

By Kate and Dan, on 20 May 2011

The venue was so beautiful, the food was delicious and the day ran smoothly. Everybody had a fantastic time and our special day was amazing. We are loving married life and will be expecting out 1st addition to the family in October!! We will always look back at Leez Priory as a beautiful venue that held our beautiful wedding day.

Perfect in every way!
Venue Service

By Kirsty and Simon, on 20 May 2011

It was a perfect day in every way and in truth no words can convey how much we appreciate how stress-free our wedding was!

Venue Service

By Alison and Richard, on 20 May 2011

Everything was set down to perfect timing. The food was absolutely perfect, the waiters and waitresses did a fantastic job in not only serving food but clearing away was equally impressive, so a big thank you to them. We cannot thank Leez Priory enough for all they have done.

Words escape me...
Venue Service

By Lorraine and Jonathan, on 20 May 2011

Words escape me currently! My wife, daughter, family, all of my guests, and I, have still not have come down from the high we found ourselves on. Our day was exceptional from every perspective. The organisation was perfect, the venue superb, the food, the service and all of your staff were exemplary. We had guests from Canada and Bermuda who said that they would not have been able to stage such a lovely wedding even in their own country. I think this says a lot of everyone at Leez Priory. Leez should, and can be proud of everyone, from the top to the bottom of their organisation.

Flowed Effortlessly
Venue Service

By Amy and Kevin, on 20 May 2011

From the beautiful ceremony in the Tower to the gorgeous wedding breakfast in the Great Hall, the Leez Priory staff could not have been more helpful. It was so well organised that the day just flowed effortlessly through to the evening disco and buffet. We very much appreciate all the hard work that is put in to make what was such a special day!

Venue Service

By Lisa and Grahm, on 20 May 2011

We were so well looked after and never had to worry about a thing except enjoying our day. All of the staff at Leez Priory were so friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the Priory itself - stunning! Our wedding at Leez Priory has left us with such special memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Leez Priory for making our dreams come true.
