Our Magical Wedding at Minstrel Court

My husband and I recently tied the knot at Minstrel Court, and we couldn't be happier with our choice. From the moment we visited in July, we knew this venue was something special. With two ceremony spaces and two dining areas to choose from (all 4 of which are beautiful!), Minstrel Court also has stunning grounds and a lake which provided the most picturesque backdrop for our ceremony and reception.

What truly set Minstrel Court apart for us, was their unparalleled flexibility and commitment to making our dream wedding day a reality. From the moment we expressed interest in the venue, they were incredibly accommodating and supportive of our ideas. Whether it was customizing the layout of our reception space or accommodating special requests, they went above and beyond to ensure that our day was exactly how we envisioned it.

From the very beginning, Minstrel Court were transparent with their costs, leaving no room for hidden surprises. This level of honesty and integrity was incredibly refreshing in an industry where transparency can sometimes be lacking. They worked closely with us to ensure that our budget was respected while still delivering a wedding experience that was everything we had dreamt of and more!

A huge part of our positive experience at Minstrel Court can be attributed to our wedding planner, Amber. From our initial consultation to the final moments of our wedding day, Amber was a joy to work with. Her impeccable communication skills and attention to detail made the planning process seamless and stress-free. No task was too big or too small for her, and her dedication to making our day perfect was evident every step of the way.

In conclusion, Minstrel Court was the perfect venue for our wedding day. We wholeheartedly recommend them to any couple looking for a wedding venue that not only delivers on beauty and service but also operates with flexibility and transparency. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the Minstrel Court team, especially Amber, for helping us create memories that will last a lifetime! We loved it!
