Wedding Venue

We had our wedding here on Friday 31st May, ceremony, meal and evening. Matt was our wedding planner who took over from another. He was amazing, put our minds at rest and nothing was too much trouble, whenever we needed him he was always on hand and made everything run perfectly.
The ceremony was set up just how we wanted it and looked great, we had drinks and canapés in the garden and everyone was at ease, whilst myself and my husband nipped off with our photographer to Instow, whilst the sun was beaming down.
The children enjoyed the garden and all the games, great location.
The food was delicious and everyone was well fed. Everything went perfectly and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect day.
The whole day was so well organised, we didn't have to worry about a thing, massive thank you to Matt, you were amazing and we are very grateful.
Our room was spacious, beautiful and spotlessly clean as we stayed the night, shame we only had it for 1 night.
We would highly recommend.

Thank you to everyone involved in our day at Cedars.

Wedding venue

I cannot recommend here enough as a perfect wedding venue. My husband and I were married here this year on 13th April 2019. The whole team were amazing and took all the stress out of the day.
Everything ran smoothly throughout the day and night, Mandie and Matt are the people to speak to here, they both are amazing at organising every little detail of your special day, so it is perfect and they are really lovely people too and make you feel at ease.
So I highly recommend here to anybody for their special day.

Could not fault

The beginning of this month we had our wedding here. We booked the bridal suite the night before, had our ceremony and the reception here and also had the bridal suite the night of the wedding. The staff were all absolutely amazing and nothing was too much for them! They were all incredibly helpful and the whole day just flowed with ease.
The DJ was lovely and played really good songs that had all of us up dancing all night.
The food was lovely and there wasn't a single problem with all 55 orders.
The bridal suite is lovely. The bed is incredibly comfortable and the bath is huge!
One very happy bride and groom.
All of our guests said they had the best day.
Thank you all so much!!!

Chose the Cedars for our Wedding Venue

Chose The Cedars for our wedding reception, held yesterday, and absolutely delighted that we did. The day itself could not be faulted at all, Great setting, top class food, and excellent,friendly service from start to finish. Our dedicated wedding planner could not have done any more for us, every tiny detail was considered an taken care of. Very luxurious, comfortable room with a great shower and bath. The cooked breakfast that is included in the price of a room is the best, tastiest and freshest cooked breakfast I have EVER had at any establishment, and is also amazing value for non resident guests. I really cannot recommend The Cedars highly enough, and will be back for more of those breakfasts!
