Autumn Wedding at The Cherry Barn
You and Stephen are the coolest couple in town
So once again thank you so much. You and Stephen are the coolest couple in town.
Just the best most beautiful venue!
Thank you so so so much for all your incredible help with the wedding. It’s always hard to envisage everything coming together to create your ‘perfect’ day, but we truly believe that we got everything we wanted and more. Your beautiful venue was the best canvass we could have hoped for, and seeing all the things that we had organised with Dita set up and complimenting the space made us - and our guests - so happy, and the day was a complete success.
More importantly, the help and guidance that you both provided leading up to, during and after the day was just so frickin’ wonderful! You made us feel so welcomed and calm - easing the nerves and stress that undoubtably comes with organising such a large and once in a lifetime event.
(The highlight was Mel setting her alarm for “Eggs and Blender” - saving the culinary day ?? )
Finding a home for all the left over produce was just another example of the “going out of your way” and aftercare provided - All of which allowed us to enjoy every moment and not stress about wedmin.
We wish you all the success in the world with The Cherry Barn as you both truly deserve it and it continues to bring as much joy to the rest of the couples of the world as it did us.
Our mini Canadian road trip/ Honeymoon may be over for now but the commitments we made to each other under your stunning barn roof will stay with us forever.
Lots of love
Will and Claire (Mr&MrsPS)
What a beautiful wedding we had!
What a wonderful place The Cherry Barn is!
Our guests loved it too - so relaxed, so pretty - a perfect setting.
But what made it really special was all the care you take to make sure everything runs smoothly - and your love for the barn and your enthusiasm. We so appreciated all those things.
We will send a couple of pics through in a day or two, but in the meantime, thank you again.
You are the perfect host and it was a true pleasure to meet you.
And we will all remember the Cherry Barn, with great happiness, for the rest of our lives!
Very best wishes and thanks again,
Isabel and Toby
We loved The Cherry Barn and your company
What a fabulous day we had, everyone said how wonderful the venue was which we fully endorse but what really made it for us was the effort that you both but in, you were exceedingly good hosts, so flexible and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. We can honestly say that you had a major input into making the day a great success and making two trips to Rye to return the stragglers was beyond any reasonable expectation.
We loved Cherry Barn and your company
With every good wish
Bill and Jen
We would definitely recommend!
Mel and Steve could not have been more lovely and helpful on the day and in the run up to the event. They went out of their way to make sure the day ran smoothly and that we had a fantastic time - which we did! I wish we could do it all over again!
Anyone looking at this venue for a wedding or a party I would highly recommend booking a viewing - you will not be disappointed! Thanks again Mel and Steve x
I just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for the really wonderful venue you provided for my daughter Rebecca and her now husband! Tristan. We have so many comments from family and friends about how stunning the venue was and how magical it looked and we could not have asked for more.
You were also so charming and helpful, it made a real difference and gave us the happiest of days.
With thanks and best wishes,
Cant wait to return
