Quirky, fun and beautiful venue
When we visited Marleybrook, we knew it was “the venue” within a minute of being there. The walled garden is a beautiful location where the ceremony took place. We then sat in the barn for a little drink and “we actually just did that” moment away from everyone. The fairground in itself is just phenomenal, a vast choice of bits and bobs to makes your wedding that little extra WOW. They have since added more rides (dodgems - err hello?!) which makes me just want to get married all over again. We simply cannot fault Marleybrook and the team who helped make our dream wedding a reality.Sent on 25/02/2021

Best day of our lives
From start to finish we couldn't fault Marleybrook! Through the whole lead up nothing was too much trouble- no matter how many inane questions I asked! Our coordinator Tanith was always so friendly and helped us organise everything!Sent on 16/09/2019
The day flowed so smoothly and nothing went wrong (that we knew of).
The venue itself is beautiful down to the last detail- if you can get some of the funfair then definitely do as it makes everything just a bit more special.
Many of our guests commented on the uniqueness of Marleybrook and how it's the best wedding they've been to!
Everything is thought of down to the last detail and we felt really at home here- like it was made for us. Loved everything and would do it all again if we had the chance!
Overall- the perfect place!

No amount of words could do justice to express how wonderful our wedding experience has been with Marleybrook House. The venue is without a doubt, the most unique, magical and inspirational place. Backed with a flawlessly professional, caring and heartfelt team… It truly is a place where dreams come true. Kris and the whole of his team couldn’t have done any better at realising our wedding vision and making our day one of the best of our lives. We were especially blessed to have Tanith as our wedding co-ordinator… From the second we first stepped into this magical venue, to the moment we left the morning after our wedding; our 2 years of planning our wedding here with Tanith has been accompanied by a unique level of attention, care and compassion that is unparalleled to anything we ever imagined we would experience. Marleybrook House is the most incredible, bespoke wedding venue you could find but that is only the start. With an unbelievably wonderful team and a wedding co-ordinator like Tanith, Marleybrook House is also a friendship, a family and never ending memories of love. (The funfair is pretty awesome too.) Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. We can’t wait to visit you all again. Much love, Justine & Myles.Sent on 14/09/2019
