    It really was magical from start to finish ....

    Morning Victoria

    Myself and my husband (eeks) would just like to say a MASSIVE thank you again to you and your team for helping us (sorry Russell ha) turn around a wedding in just a few weeks. It really was magical from start to finish, and you helped us achieve everything we dreamed it would be and more.

    Everyone was talking about how perfect the room was and our photos are amazing, especially of Russell’s mum, who was beaming.

    You really did go above and beyond to help make our day special.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

    Beautiful Venue and Great Support from Events Team

    The venue was absolutely stunning, great for pictures and such a unique and fun place to have our ceremony and reception.

    The events team (Debbie and Victoria especially) were brilliant: they were friendly, answered all of our questions, were very quick to respond to emails, looked into special requests for us, and were very accommodating and professional. Debbie helped us coordinate on the day and made sure everything went smoothly, which was such a great help.

    The food was fantastic - we got great feedback from our guests - and the catering team gave great service and was really great in answering our queries and being flexible on requests like evening snacks etc.

    The ceremony room was all set up and ready before the guests arrived, then the setup of the gallery for the cocktail hour was also well-timed and organized, and the atrium for dinner was simply stunning.

    I would 100% recommend the venue to anyone looking for a beautiful and unique place to celebrate their wedding.
