Better than we could have ever imagined!
After being let down with our original venue abroad, we were apprehensive about re-booking but after visiting the beautiful Jephson Gardens and meeting Steve, we knew we would be in great hands. Little did we know how much was to follow with having to rearrange on several occasions due to the pandemic.
Steve and Just Inspire supported us throughout the process, listened to what we wanted and helped us through some difficult decisions to get us to our day in May 2021. We needed to adapt how our day would fall but Steve may the process so easy for us by being so accommodating and flexible throughout.
The day itself was beyond perfect and Steve, George and the team ensured it ran smoothly from start to finish. The food was exceptional and all our guests commented on what a great job the team did. Just Inspire made the day feel really relaxed and we were able to enjoy it, knowing the day was safely in their hands.
My and husband and I can't thank you enough and highly recommend the venue and the team for any future events. We hope to have more in the future with you! Thanks again, Tyla and Alex Russell xSent on 14/06/2021

In safe hands for the entire journey
We were first due to be married Summer 2020, but then delayed this to Spring 2021. Steven was able to help us navigate the uncertainty of the pandemic, really listening to what we wanted and in the end delivering on a fantastic day.Sent on 16/05/2021
From the very start of the partnership, he made himself available whenever we wanted to touch base and provided timely email updates which were incredibly reassuring given all the turbulence in government guidelines. We both felt like we were in very safe hands with Steven in all of the preparation.
We got married in The Glasshouse, our immediate families sat in their bubbles, and had a very intimate ceremony. We were both able to fully enjoy the moment, and completely trust in Steve and his team.
My partner and I are not extravagant people, we didn't have a big vision of what we wanted, nor did we want to feel like the wedding was not "us". Steven's experience meant that he was able to give us what we wanted, even if we didn't know what that looked like. At no point did we feel like we were being sold to - he is offering something truly personalised.
Thank you for all of your efforts Steven & team. We are very much looking forward to working with you for our (hopefully) BIG reception.

A wonderful day!
My son and his wife had their wedding ceremony in The Glasshouse during the Covid Restrictions. As a result there were only 12 close family present. The room was beautifully prepared and there was a lovely calm atmosphere. Steve and his staff were very kind and helpful. They had been very accommodating with respect to the day needing rearranging due to Government restrictions. We are very much looking forward to returning next year for the reception/party.Sent on 09/05/2021

Perfect autumnal wedding
We had our wedding ceremony at the Royal Pump Rooms and reception at Jephson's in October 2019 - it was beyond incredible! Both venues have recently undergone a refurbishment and are so beautiful - Jephson's perfectly compliments the adjoining indoor garden / Temperate House. From the first time we made contact, communication with Steve and Sarah was easy and we felt very looked after. They helped make our day unique and didn't just offer a package deal. They were the first venue to ask us what WE wanted and not just present us with a brochure! We planned our day with Steve and Sarah (Clive and Russell also helped us create our menu which turned out to be fantastic, we've had SO many compliments) - they made everything we wanted doable and nothing was too much. We used quite a lot of external suppliers which can complicate things but everything came together on the day as the venue handled everything. The venues are gorgeous, the food was delicious and we couldn't fault the service - would highly recommend JustInspire!Sent on 29/01/2020

Nick and Lianne wedding July 2019
The service we received from Just Inspire events was beyond our expectation from start to finish. They had a vision of how everything would be planned out which surpassed what we could have ever imagined. We held our reception at Jephson Gardens (with our ceremony across the road at the Pump Rooms and ran by the same people). Everything seemed to go without a hitch or at least we were unaware to any problems.Sent on 03/09/2019
We started the reception with drinks and canapes and an acoustic duo who performed on the terrace for our guests (and any lucky passers-by!) to enjoy. We then had food which many of our guests commented was the best food they had ever received at a wedding. For mains we had the roast beef or vegetable terrine and for dessert we had the cheesecake. I can highly recommend both!
Steve, Sarah and the rest of the team are so professional yet so friendly and will really do their utmost to make your day special (they even had a dance with me at the reception!)

Our perfect day!
Well what can we say! It's been 6 weeks since our wedding day and we are only just coming back down to reality.Sent on 17/07/2019
We cannot thank the whole team enough for just being just so amazing throughout the whole process of planning our day. We have received non stop compliments about all of the team from the day and so it's important these are passed on!
We really feel like both Steven & Sarah became good friends and put aside so much time for us when we had multiple questions or queries (or to answer my never ending lists!) whether meeting for a drink, coffee or even arranging a food tasting for us at the pump rooms-
I have never met someone like Sarah who is so attentive, the fact that she knew the days breakdown by timings along with all the tiny details off by heart was amazing!
The way everyone was greeted by the team on arrival from the church and directed toward the venue as they entered the park to Steven escorting our wedding car through to the front of the venue were just a couple of the tiny details that made our day so special- Not forgetting how all meals were served by the team, this was just so professional.
The arrival was perfect, the setting was beautiful and the food was delicious!
We have the most beautiful photos from the day and evening and just cannot thank everyone enough for making the day run so smoothly and making it even more perfect than we could imagine,

Amazing wedding day
To say we had the best wedding day ever is an understatement.Sent on 09/06/2019
JustInspire inherited us from previous owners and how lucky we were!
The attention to detail from Steven and Sarah is perfection. When planning our wedding they just said tell us what you want and we will make it work, it was a kinda design your wedding with a little recommendation and we make it perfect. Trust their judgement, they are awesome at what they do.
We were escorted through the gates to the front of the temperate house were our cars stayed. Our photos are stunning.
The drinks reception was in the temperate house with a live singer. The vibe is lovely.
Then onto the breakfast in the main building over looking the gorgeous river! The food omg the food! Perfection. Served on sharing boards perfect for socialising. If you are a foodie this venue is a must, incredible food which sometimes you don’t get from large events.
Then the party and wow what a party! These guys threw a good one. The party was in the temperate house, perfect surrounding. Steven was on hand for everything we needed and even helped with a few cheeky photos.
Ourselves and our guests are in awe of the incredible wedding they produced! I wish we could do it all again and if we could we would choose this venue and team every time.
Thanks so much guys for the most magical wedding day!
Much love to team JustInspire x

Even better than we could have imagined!
We cannot begin to express how fantastic Steven, Sarah, Chef Russell, Ben and the rest of the team at Just Inspire were. The attention to detail and care that they took over helping us form our dream day was amazing.Sent on 21/06/2019
Rather than present us with a package like many venues, they really took the time to get to know us, and came up with some fantastic suggestions to make the day feel unique and special. From taking the care to come up with a sociable sharing wedding breakfast that felt really us, to even finer points such as placing our table in the middle of our guests rather than the front of the room. We've had comments from all of our guests about how much they loved the food - my Dad loved it so much he mentioned in his speech!
They were completely flexible through all the planning and right up to the day itself. Sarah even stayed later on the night before the wedding when we overran with setting up the decorations and made us feel that it was no trouble. And I believe the bar staff sourced apple sours for some rowdy friends when they didn't have any behind the bar!
The management of the day itself was impeccable. It ran incredibly smoothly - so smoothly that you almost didn't notice anyone taking care of things, but whenever you needed something someone was always there to help.
The venue is absolutely stunning, and they were charming people to boot who made us feel that they were just as invested in making it a great day as we were. They really made our day special and we're so grateful!

We fell in love with this place as soon as we saw it. The fact that the aisle was amongst the trees and over the pond added an extra special touch to it. We decided to have the ceremony and the reception at the glasshouse and I’m so glad we did.Sent on 09/06/2019
Our guests were amazed by the picturesque venue and it made it so much more perfect to be able to have everything all in the one place and finish the night dancing under the trees-where else do you get that?
Steven and Sarah were so helpful with absolutely everything and as soon as I met them they put all my worries at ease. Nothing was too much hassle and any query I had they solved or problem I had they found a solution. I couldn’t have wished for better people to support our day for us.
I would highly recommend this venue to anyone. It’s so unique and the views for the pictures provide so many choices for a backdrop. the Scenes outside provide so much scenery to the venue too that very little is required to accessorise it at all.
With half the guests coming from Ireland for the celebrations we drank the venue dry on several occasions and I only found out about it the next day as the staff made sure everything ran absolutely smoothly The staff were so helpful in ensuring and they did an absolutely incredible job of it. Couldn’t thank them enough.
