A thought for the future

My fiancé and I were recent guests to a friends wedding at Taunton School. Having attended the ceremony in the beautiful Chapel and the reception held in the Old Library, I would definitely consider Taunton School as a venue for my own wedding. The venue oozes elegance and the day was 5*

Superb Planning

Thank you so very much for your quite superb planning and organisation which ensured Chris and Sian’s wedding on Saturday was such an outstanding success. Absolutely everyone who attended was full of praise for the setting, for the church service, for the quality of food and for the service received from everyone involved. We simply couldn’t be happier. We will be forever grateful to you for your expertise and the unflappable way you sorted out our particular wishes, whatever they were, which helped us to enjoy the whole experience so much.
