    It felt incredible to have our own beautiful house

    Fantastic wedding venue!
    Newburgh was the first venue we looked at and after over 20 venues, nothing compared to it so we got booking fast!
    Paul and Steven were incredible in the run up to the day, helping out with any questions we had.
    It is clear that Newburgh have done many weddings and took care of every little detail - they clearly know what they are doing!
    We loved the fact that there was a lot of flexibility in the planning stages and it was our venue for the weekend so not crammed in between a wedding the day before and after.
    The photos we have from in and around the grounds are stunning and it felt incredible to have our own beautiful house and grounds for the best day of our lives! The ruins were just perfect for our canapés and champagne reception and everyone commented how beautiful it was and the vast lawns proved perfect for the numerous children!
    Thank you for everything you did and I cannot recommend it more - we have the best memories .. if only we could do it all over again!
