    I just wanted to formally thank you and the team- a special mention to Trish who wa just wonderful and so kind to all of our guests. Our day was perfect, it really was the best day of our lives. We are delighted we chose the Bluecoat for our reception. The food was lovely, the staff fantastic and helpful. The venue was just beautiful. Everyone commented on how "cool" the venue it is. Thank you for organising everything for us and taking the time to answer all of our questions.

    The most amazing wedding day!

    Thank you so much for giving us the most amazing wedding day! We can't thank you enough for making what was probably a "giant" day of chaos, seamless and wonderful.

    Practically perfect in every way

    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.
