Practically perfect in every way
Venue Service

By Claire and Thomas, on 22 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 27 May 2017

From the moment we walked in to the Bluecoat, we knew it was the only place for us. Not only is the venue stunning from the outside but it is beautiful on the inside too. We booked our wedding the day we viewed rooms and from start to finish the staff were so helpful. We were able to set up everything the day before and had our own contact there for any arrangements. The day ran as smoothly as we could have hoped for and the food was exceptional. I couldn't recommend this venue more to anyone, I wish I could relive the day again.
