The Perfect Wedding Venue

We couldn't have made a better choice for our wedding than to have it at Standedge. From the start our designated contact Sam was helpful, flexible to everything we wanted, and the price was so reasonable for everything that was included. Nothing was too much trouble, and Sam and the team really know what they are doing. Our day ran seamlessly which, bearing in mind we had a petting zoo, open mic and takeaway curry for 170 people including 48 children, was no mean feat! The room was decorated beautifully and with our own added touches it really was magical. I cannot thank Sam and the team enough, and Standedge will always be a special place for us to visit.
