The ceremony at the Temple was beyond words
Venue Service

By Jennifer Humphreys, on 06 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Mar 2019

“The day was wonderful and the ceremony at the Temple was beyond words.  I should like to say a huge thank you to the caretaker, Ian.  He was so helpful both before the ceremony, and in the days afterwards when I called to collect some things that had been left.  We had a couple of hiccoughs along the way, (caused by the closure of roads around the rugby stadium), but this all contributed to making the day memorable.   Would you please pass on Laura, Matthew's and my thanks to the young man who looked after the bar and to Ian - who helped to make the day very special.   With many thanks,   Jennifer Humphreys (Laura's mum)”

Its something truly special at Temple of Peace
Venue Service

By Lucy and Pedro, on 06 Aug 2019Date of Wedding - 12 May 2018

The venue is so versatile, you really can let your imagination run wild and Emily and her team are so accommodating; they want you to dream as big as you can and really have something special. There was no feeling of 'cookie cutter' wedding here, every suggestion we made was met with 'oh yeah, that would be so cool. No problem'. We wanted a unique wedding that we could make feel as 'us' as possible and avoid the barns and stately homes that wouldn't have felt right. We absolutely got something truly special by picking Temple of Peace for our wedding and we can't recommend them enough.

Thank you so much for looking after us so well!
