An amazing day thanks to an amazing team x
Venue Service

By Fiona, on 24 Nov 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

We enjoyed our amazing day here in June. This venue is beautiful and provides the backdrop for the most amazing photos. The team behind the scenes, claire particularly, are always on hand to answer questions and respond to emails. Nothing is too much trouble. Paul leads the day, and was a huge help from the first meeting through to the end of the day. He ensured we were treated like royalty, fed, watered and looked after. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The food was outstanding and all of our guests commented on the personal nature of our wedding which set it apart from many they had been to before. A truly lovely venue allowing a completely bespoke wedding to suit every kind of couple. We only wish we could do it all again. Thank you all x

An Incredible Day
Venue Service

By Amy & Darryl, on 05 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 26 May 2019

I just wanted to say thank you all for our amazing Wedding! Everything was so smooth from the booking process right through to the big day! We had so many compliments from people about how the day just flowed and there was no waiting around for anything. The food tasted amazing and the afternoon tea exceeded everyone's expectations. Paul was so attentive throughout the day, making sure me and Darryl were happy and keeping us in the loop with the next step of the day. Also, Sue, who was looking after us in the Bridal Suite was brilliant! She was so attentive and even my Hair & Makeup team commented on how good she was, even making sure they were OK. The whole team were happy to help with any questions leading up to the big day. We are so thankful and happy we booked our wedding with you and couldn't have asked for a better day!

We knew straight away when we visited the Compasses this was the perfect venue for us! It’s a beautiful venue in the picturesque Essex countryside which is just what we wanted for our day! But what makes this so special is the wonderful people there who genuinely care and love what they do and you can tell! Big thanks to Paul , who is just amazing and to Claire and the other ladies in the office. Our wedding day was so special and we were so lucky with the weather too! All our guests loved the venue and someone said it was a hidden gem! We highly recommend you visit the Compasses and discover it for yourselves!

Thank you to Paul and all the staff at The Compasses at Pattiswick. Such a wonderful venue which provides a very bespoke service, no matter what type of wedding you are looking for. No request was too much trouble. The venue is stunning and the food was amazing. We had an utterly magical day, with wonderful memories made. Can we do it again? My husband has already said 'no'! With thanks from Mr & Mrs Clark (and the children and the dog!)

If you're getting married, do it at The Compasses.
Venue Service

By Rachel and William, on 28 May 2019Date of Wedding - 20 Apr 2019

We got married in April 2019 at The Compasses and I am still on cloud 9. It was the best day of our lives without a doubt and we wouldn't change a single thing. You don't feel like a number to The Compasses and they make you feel so special and important. We cannot recommend The Compasses enough and there aren't enough words to describe how brilliant the day was. They pride themselves on their bespoke weddings which makes them truly unique. If you are getting married, you HAVE to do it here.

Incredible Venue

By Natasha & Mark Allison, on 08 May 2019Date of Wedding - 19 Apr 2019

We had a cracking wedding party at The Compasses at Pattiswick with Paul and the team catering for everything we needed, ensuring the night went without a hitch! And the regular 'check-ins' throughout the evening shows the amazing attention to detail which makes this such an amazing venue. Family and friends loved the venue too and are pleased they now know it exists! Top work guys, great venue!

A Wonderful Day
Venue Service

By Stella Gallagher, on 08 May 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Apr 2019

My daughter got married at The Compasses at Pattiswick and I just wanted to thank everyone for the amazing attention to every little detail - we couldn't have asked for more. Every member of staff worked non-stop from early morning until very late at night to ensure that my daughter and son-in-law had the most perfect day. I can't recommend the venue highly enough.

Outstanding Venue
Venue Service

By Sammy & Chris Watkins, on 21 May 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Apr 2019

My other half and I had our wedding at The Compasses just over a month ago and, in all honesty, we couldn't have been happier with the decision. They were the quickest venue to respond to our enquiry and were very personable when arranging to visit the venue. It was the first venue we looked at and it set such a high standard for us that, when we visited others, nothing really beat it. Our first meeting with Paul was excellent, he and the team were very accommodating and incredibly flexible in making sure that we got the wedding we wanted. They left no detail about the wedding unchecked when asking us about what our ideal wedding would be. It really took the stress off us as the newly-weds. The venue itself is a very pretty building with a nicely-kitted-out bridal suite, bar, reception area, quiet area, ceremony hall/dining area, and dance floor. There's an old-school playing area outside which is great for any children that attend and the drinks were pub prices as opposed to "wedding venue prices" so happy days all round! The staff on the day were superb. Paul really helped keep the events of the day moving forward in a way that felt natural and was able to coordinate with so many people that it felt like he had a secret twin. The rest of the team were really friendly and helpful towards us and our guests and the food was incredible (we went for the BBQ)! Again, the flexibility they gave with the menu (we had a couple of vegans, vegetarians, a nut allergy, and a gluten allergy to consider) just helped everything else run smoothly. So if you're looking to have a really sweet, intimate, and stress-free bespoke wedding, these guys are amazing. Get married here!

Thank You!

What an amazing place! We can't imagine there being any better venue to have a wedding. From the moment we saw The Compasses at Pattiswick we knew it would be perfect for our special day. A stunning building in a gorgeous setting with the most caring, organised and friendly people all there to make your day as perfect as you always dreamed of! Paul and his team think of everything (even things you didn't realise you needed/wanted)! Nothing is too much to ask and they ensured that all your needs are catered for, including special meals for one of our guests (a young boy with a selection of complex allergies). A few days before the wedding, I even asked Paul if he could make sure the sun would be shining for our day - I don't know how he did it but he even managed to accomplish this! : ) There's really nothing else to say other than 'Thank you', 'Thank you', 'Thank you'!!!

A Truly Amazing Day
Venue Service

By Naomi & Mitchell, on 21 May 2019Date of Wedding - 23 Mar 2019

Well what can we say about the Compasses? From our initial meeting we knew it was the place we should get married as Jono was so welcoming and happy to accommodate exactly what we wanted. The whole team were fantastic with all of our questions leading up to the day and no question was too much for them. The day was absolutely perfect - Paul did such a fantastic job and was so calming all day. The whole team were also fantastic and all guests were singing their praises. We can't thank The Compasses enough for making our day everything we dreamed of and more
