Wedding Review
Venue Service

By Mark Cooper, on 02 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2018

The venue itself is incredible, such a beautiful place to have a wedding. It was by far the best we visited in the lead up to our wedding. The only thing that put us off booking straight away, is that it was a bit more expensive than some other options, but you most definitely get what you pay for. I really feel we had great value for money and many times we’ve mentioned how thankful we are that we stretched the budget to ensure we had our wedding there. Firstly, the staff – Massive credit to all of them. We had Hayley as our personal contact throughout the whole experience and she was fantastic. You could tell from the beginning she was very experienced and knew exactly what made a great wedding. No request was too much and we felt they were hugely accommodating to some requests outside the norm. I also have to credit the head chef, Michael, as we wanted food that had an Arabic twist, which is not something usually offered, but the food was incredible – Make sure you do the tasting event, to sample the food first. This really helped with our decisions on what to have for canapés etc. On the day itself, all of the staff were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble and the service was impeccable. For example, each guest on the table received their food at exactly the same time, which in my opinion, is a really nice touch and something guests commented they really appreciated. Even a year later, we still get people commenting about the venue, food, service etc. which is testament to how excellent it was. I would 100% recommend to anyone looking at having their wedding or event at Rivervale Barn.

Fantastic Day!
Venue Service

By Rita and Malcolm Winkler, on 18 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2017

Once we visited Rivervale Barn we knew this was where we wanted to have our wedding. This was the second marriage for both of us and we wanted a venue that was simple but elegant. We got what we wanted and more! From the time we booked our date to the time we left the venue the morning after our wedding we were so pleased with the wonderfully professional, helpful and gracious service of our wedding coordinator, Hayley Baker. The food was amazing, the service fantastic, the staff kind and efficient. All my guests were raving about the day. Hayley even provided the weather that she promised!! I couldn't have asked for a better day.

The best day ever!
Venue Service

By Marsha Hamilton, on 22 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 14 May 2017

My husband and I got married here yesterday (14/5/17) and I can honestly say it was the best day ever! Venue, surroundings, food and team were exceptional. All our guests said how wonderful the venue was. I had wanted to get married here even before we were engaged and when we viewed the venue I fell in love with it even more. My now husband at the time of our show round immediately said "we're getting married here" when we walked in. We're so glad we did. Thank you to Michalea and the rest of the team. Thank you for making our day complete x

The staff cant do enough for you
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Turner, on 22 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 12 May 2017

My husband and I got married here on 12th May. I saw some pictures from a friends wedding and from then on I knew it was the one. When I brought hubby here for our show round, he immediately fell in love with it too. I got goosebumps every time we visited. Rivervale is our dream venue and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. Thank you to Sophie and Emma for everything that you did for us. The staff can't do enough for you and the food is heavenly. There are no words to describe just how amazing Rivervale is. Thank you so much.

Myself & Lee got married here on the 23rd April 2017 at the stunning Rivervale Barn. From start to finish our wedding day was just perfect and topped off with the fact our dogs came was just amazing! This wouldn't have been as seamless without the amazing attention to detail from Hayley, this women is amazing and I cannot thank her enough for making the set up of the day so perfect and stress free. We will treasure this day forever. Thank you. X

Amazing wedding!
Venue Service

By Louise Wesson, on 22 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 18 Nov 2016

Went to my sisters wedding 18/11/16 with family including a 5 week old baby in tow. The venue speaks for itself, amazing. What makes a day is the staff and I cannot speak highly enough of them. All polite, friendly and attentive. I was feeding my baby and there was constantly water in front of me and offers of help - not expected but greatly appreciated xxx
