Amazing Day!

My Husband and I could not fault a thing! We had the most amazing day. We were lucky enough to get married at the Summer House outside on a beautiful August day in 2014. The staff were attentive and looked after not just us but all our guest, the food was superb and our family and friends commented on what a absolutely stunning day it was, every detail looked after!
Thank you to Becky and her team x

We even had snow!

From arriving along the long drive lit by flares our wedding day was fantastic.we were greeted at the door by Yvonne and our guests had mulled wine to warm them as it was snowing..I had always wanted a winter wedding and was so lucky.The pavilion had a christmas tree inside and the terrace was all lit to nmake a warm welcome.We had a suprise when we arrived a net of balloons filed with feathers was set off as we entered and the day just got better and better.Food,staff and our room were all great ,i have only just seen this site as my sister is getting married also at Ravenwood so we wanted to tell everyone about the best place in the world for their wedding.

Ravenwood made all our dreams come true

From the welcome we received when enquiring about our wedding to the sad moment of leaving ,the staff at Ravenwood Hall were fantastic,nothing was too much trouble.The drive approaching the beautiful Pavilion is so secret...then the grounds open up before you it was a wonderful day.We enjoyed every minute of the day and did not have to worry about a thing.All the details were discussed before hand and the food was delicious .Lee and I spent our honeymoon night at the Hall and loved the country house feel and the historic charm of the place.Where else would you go where the lady on reception (AnneMarie)would help friends to hide until just the right moment and help with all the personal details when our little bridesmaid got cold feet!!If you want the best wedding ever then we would recommend Ravenwood to everyone.
