Wouldnt have changed a single thing!
Venue Service

By Catherine Walbridge, on 19 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Dec 2014

We got married at The Battleaxes four years ago & often talk about our perfect day. From our initial meeting with Lotty, their awesome wedding planner, to heading home the following morning, we knew that we’d made the right choice. The staff were amazing, the attention to detail was incredible and nothing was too much trouble. This is such a beautiful venue. If we had our day over again we wouldn’t change a single was perfect!

It was perfect!

Not really sure where to start with explaining why I love this venue so much! I recently married at the Battleaxes and it was perfect. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was immense, delicious and a major talking point! The staff were smiley, helpful beyond belief and they made everything seem so effortless. The decor is wicked, a really different place to tie the knot and this was really important to us! We're so happy that we will be able to return here year on year to celebrate our anniversary and enjoy even more delicious food! Thank you to all who helped to make our day perfect... It really was!
