Stunning venue and great team.
These guys were great from start to finish, they looked at all of the little details and took a lot of the stress from the planning.
The venue is absolutely stunning and having the whole venue to ourself for the day just makes so much sense! All of the guests complimented how amazing the venue was. The food was also amazing as was the accommodation.
Couldn't recommend highly enough! Couldn't imagine having gotten married anywhere else.
Everything you could you wish for
We were then shown round the venue by the lovely Tina. As we were shown around the venue and talked through our endless options we quickly imagined how our day could look there.
We secured our date and began planning. This was made incredibly easy but constant communications and easy to use portals for planning and payments.
In the lead up to the day, Emma was our co-ordinator who couldn't have been more helpful making sure that every little detail was laid out and even made some great suggestions that wouldn't have crossed my mind.
We made full use of the Bridal cottage and the Groom's lodge the night before the wedding, I would strongly suggest this option!
Both our day & night coordinators on the wedding day deserve a special mention, from checking in to make sure everything was going as expected, ensuring we had time together as a couple, to making sure I got some of our evening food!
And lastly, on the subject of food, just wow! Every single one of our guests were blown away by the food. Many saying it was the best wedding food they'd ever had.
I know it's a long review but I couldn't do Manor by the Lake justice in any fewer words.
Couldn’t recommend more!!
The amazing staff at the Manor by the Lake really make this experience! Nothing was ever too much trouble, they were all very helpful from start to finish. Siobhan helped our planning and was just fantastic throughout. Cleo ran the morning and Connor ran the event so smoothly we did not have to do anything at all on the day other than just enjoying ourselves.
Couldn’t recommend them more for a wedding just wish we could do it all over again!!
