A magical setting, the best day ever!
A magical setting, steeped in history made it the best day ever! The Abbey Chapel made it extra special for us & then having the courtyard & grounds to ourselves to celebrate with all of our friends & family was perfect. We rented the cottage in the abbey grounds which was ideal, as the bride I could walk to the Abbey on the day. The grounds are a perfect setting for fabulous photos & just being in the one place for the whole event was great. All of the arrangements leading up to & on the day were handled brilliantly by Chelsea & her team.Sent on 09/04/2020

Our wedding day at Newstead Abbey was perfect from beginning to end, with staff doing everything to make sure our guests and us had everything we needed, the venue is just the most perfect setting and we knew from when we got engaged this was where we was going to get married. I fell in love with the grounds and the ceremony room the first time we visited and knew it was 100% yes!!!Sent on 19/12/2019

Newstead Abbey will always be a special place to us – it’s medieval monastic architecture and grounds makes for some breath taking backdrops for wedding photos, and we’ll certainly treasure ours forever. Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for. The team really went the extra mile to make it a day to remember and we have some incredibly happy memories that will be with us always. Thank you so much!Sent on 04/02/2019
