    Wedding reception venue

    We had our wedding reception at Marks Hall on the 10th June 2021 and it was absolutely perfect!
    As a local I already knew the grounds surrounding the wedding venue (The Coach House) were beautiful, however I had never been in The Coach House itself. On our first visit to The Coach House I was blown away by its beauty and its cozy friendly atmosphere. I knew it would be the perfect place to have our wedding reception.

    We were very lucky because the flowers in the garden at the time matched our wedding flowers perfectly!
    All the staff at Marks Hall especially Lisa and Grace were a pleasure to work with during the planning of my wedding, they helped me tirelessly with all my questions regarding covid and were so friendly and made me feel completely at ease. On the day they couldn’t do enough for me, from the moment we arrived till the moment we left. They all seemed so calm too! Nothing was too much effort.

    I absolutely loved having my wedding at Marks Hall and I would not hesitate in holding future events here. Maybe I’ll have a vow renewal one day!

    Perfect wedding venue

    We were blessed with gorgeous weather for our wedding day and the Coach House and gardens looked just stunning. We had use of the golf buggy included in our venue-only hire and this was great for getting to lots of great locations for our photos in the grounds with as minimal sweat at possible (it was 35 degrees!). Lots of our guests commented on how exceptionally beautiful the venue and grounds were.

    We picked the venue for a number of reasons. It was really important for us to have access the day before the wedding so we could put up our own decorations and make it look as personal as possible so this was great. The venue-only option also meant we could chose our own catering and supply our own drinks for during the day which really suited us.

    Laura was our wedding coordinator and she was incredible on the big day at organising logistics so it was as stress-free as possible for us. She and the rest of the team were great in the lead up to our wedding at answering all of our (many!) emails and accommodating our requests. We cannot thank the team enough. Our day was so special and everything we had dreamed of.

    Best day ever

    We had the best day ever at the Coach House for our wedding in October. Lisa and the team insisted that we’d be able to have our wedding outside in the garden and they were right! The whole team were great for helping us with all the preparations. It’s the perfect venue if you want to be creative and they allowed us to do everything we wanted.
    I just wanted to say a special thanks to Chloe, who was our wedding day coordinator. I believe it was her first wedding in charge and she did an absolutely fantastic job!
    Thank you all so much, I wish we could do it all over again! Xxx
