The food was amazing, and there was plenty of it. Great value for money as well.
The coordinators on the day and in the run up were super helpful and made everything run smoothly. We were as relaxed as we possibly could have been on the day and that was thanks to the team.
The grounds are lovely and made for some great photos. Bar service was great on the day as well and the guests were kept happy all day.
Would highly recommend!
All of our guests commented on how delicious the canapés and food were.
We will 10000% be returning for our anniversary.
Thank you everyone at Salomons for ensuring we had the most perfect day.
The perfect wedding venue!
Perfect day and service
Beautiful day, incredible venue
We worked mainly with Lauren, who ensured that everything went ahead without an issue.
The day was perfect, the grounds are stunning, the venue is beautiful and the staff were flawless.
Thank you Salomons!
What a great venue for a wedding!
From looking around to the day itself the team were so friendly and answered any questions we had as soon as possible and made us feel like they actually cared.
The day itself was perfect and it was all down the the team working hard so we didn’t need to worry. On arrive the front of house manager welcomed us and made us feel very welcome and even said this is your house for the days which really put me at ease. The event team made sure we was all ok from start to finish and the rooms looked amazing. It was great to have different parts of our wedding in different parts of the venue as it made really interesting for our guests.
The food was outstanding and there was so much of it. No one was going away hungry at all.
We would highly recommend Salomons as a wedding venue. We got some amazing comments from our guests on how amazing the day was and how great the staff, venue and food was. If you are looking for somewhere great for your wedding this look no further.
We would like to thank Salmons and specially Fiona for such a brilliant day!
Salomons Estate review
Perfect from start to finish
While I could wax lyrical about the venue, I want to mention especially a couple things:
- We stayed in one of the newly built cottages the evening of the wedding and it was gorgeous. The room could use a few rugs as the rustic aesthetic can be chilly, but the space you get for the price you pay is significantly better value than anything else in the entire area. When we return for an anniversary we will definitely book one of these again.
- The food was divine. Breakfast had vegetarian options for us on request which is a big bonus, but the chef for our wedding meal was also very inventive with ensuring we had delicious food to match a range of dietary requirements. The portions were very generous.
- The staff are the highlight though. From moment one (showing up randomly on a Saturday with no warning and requesting a tour) we were shown kindness and enthusiasm for their venue. I also spoke with some of the cleaning staff the next morning and they were incredibly helpful with finding things I had misplaced. I've never stayed anywhere before where every single person is delightful, and I am grateful for the hard work they all put in.
Thank you so much for all your efforts. They paid off spectacularly and we will never forget how perfect you made the entire planning and wedding journey.
Everything was wonderful.
Wonderful wedding venue

Amazing wedding venue - what a perfect day!
Everything was so perfect on our day and I have to say it’s all because of the team at Salomons.
Fiona our events planner was amazing, not only full of passion for her job she was also very professional and went above and beyond to make our day special. Nothing was too much to ask to the point that she was driving us around in a Golf Buggy giving her coat to my wife in the rain just to make sure we got the shots we wanted!
Also a special thank you to Terry who looked after us the night before and the night of the wedding. Again, very professional and amazing at what he does.
If you are thinking about booking Salomons as your wedding venue all I can say is go ahead and book it, you will be in very good hands and the venue is beautiful.
The food was unreal, everyone is still going on about how amazing the Lamb was!
Thanks again to everyone at Salomons for making our day so special.

Beyond exceptional service
I could not recommend Salomons more if you want a dream wedding like ours! Our guests all said it was the best wedding they had been to and we had 195 guests!
Thank you so much to everyone at Salomons and especially Fiona
Phenomenal- a dream come true!
The grounds are absolutely stunning and so is the inside. We were lucky enough to get married outside and then have our wedding breakfast and reception in the Science Theatre and it really was just beautiful with incredible food and amazing staff that made you feel like the most important people in the world. They genuinely couldn’t have done more for us.
Two people that really helped us were Courtney and Fiona. Courtney supported us through all of our changes and Fiona was our wedding coordinator. They are incredible women who went above and beyond for us both. Fiona did an excellent job before and more importantly on the day of the wedding and had everything under control, organising vendors, and decorations whilst still making us both feel calm and important.
We genuinely couldn’t have picked a better venue or team of staff and we feel extremely lucky to have got married here. The photos show the stunning grounds, but also the smiles that didn’t leave our faces all day.
Thank you Salomons!
