The most perfect wedding venue ...
Venue Service

By Nikki Waite, on 09 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Oct 2018

As soon as we drove up to the Gate House my husband and I knew this was the place we wanted to get married at. The venue is stunning and unique and we had such a fantastic day! Mercii and the team were extremely helpful with planning the wedding and during the actual day, and everything (apart from the weather) was perfect and went without a hitch! It was lovely to be able to have our wedding party stay with us at the venue, and all of the accommodation was immaculate. I highly recommend Pentney Abbey and it will always have a special place in our memories.

The most fantastic wedding day

From first meeting Lucy and the staff at Pentney, they were extremely helpful and put us at ease with a process we knew nothing about. All of our suppliers were contacted and Rachael went above and beyond when I requested a bowling alley made from bales of hay, on the wedding day, that’s exactly what we had. A year ago, we had vision in our heads of how we wanted our wedding to be, and on our wedding day, our expectations were surpassed and a lot of that is down to how well the day ran. Even friends and family commented on how much Lucy and the team did for us and how smoothly the day went. Every little part of the day went perfectly. We can’t thank Lucy enough for helping with our perfect day, she is extremely good at what she does. We had some issues with the weather which no one could control but again, this was dealt with professionally and without causing any stress to either of us. I can’t imagine the hard work that went in behind the scenes to make sure things went to well. The food was fantastic. We had some dietary requirements and this was all catering for fantastically. After the wedding, our guest commented that it was some of the best wedding good they had ever tasted. The accommodation was also great and it made for a fantastic weekend for all of the family. Everything was clean and tidy, the décor is amazing and the hampers that are provided are exactly what you need. We just wish we could do it all again- and if we did, we would choose Pentney without any hesitation.
