    Our wedding 5th June 2021

    Wow.. where do we start!!!
    We was lucky enough to get finally married at The Dreys on 5th June 2021 after many cancellations due to the lockdowns / COVID restrictions.
    It was totally worth the wait!

    We got engaged in December 2017 and found The Dreys at the beginning of 2018 after searching “woodland venue” on Google. This was our first venue to view and our last because it ended up to be everything we wanted.

    We booked our wedding day for 29th May 2020.
    From 2018 we got to know the venue owner Jackie really well, we had countless phone calls and meetings whilst we was planning our big day.
    Suddenly Covid hit in March 2020 forcing us to cancel our wedding day. Jackie and the team couldn’t have been more helpful in this extremely stressful and upsetting situation.

    Nothing was too much trouble, they booked us in as many new provisional dates possible to make sure we had lots of options and was there to talk to us and reassure us throughout.
    No one could prepare us for the lengthy lockdowns that could then come forcing us to eventually re book 5th June 2021.

    The year flew by and suddenly we was on top of June 2021 and finally about to get married!
    Again after numerous calls with Jackie and the team we decided to go ahead with a 30 guest wedding.

    We also got introduced to The Wedding Dolls, who were added onto our booking as part of the new package with The Dreys… and let me tell you they were a big added bonus!
    The Dolls were so thorough and thoughtful with everything they did. I’m a bit of a control freak and I stress about things being perfect and all my little details being set out exactly how I wanted and envisioned them to be.
    They listened and took notes and meetings and on the day got everything spot on. I couldn’t have done it better myself.

    Jackie is one of the most kindest, selfless people I've ever met. Nothing and I mean nothing was too much trouble. Jackie allowed us to have the wedding day of our dreams and we’re so grateful for that.

    The venue is out of this world! And has improved massively through the efforts of the owners since we first viewed it back in 2018. They have worked tirelessly through lockdown to keep adding to the venue so that us brides and grooms can have the perfect day after lockdown!
    The improvements on the ceremony area with the toilets & floor extension worked so well.

    We were lucky enough to have gorgeous weather on our day but the venue are completely covered for all weather. They have a huge main marque and a drinks tent, the ceremony/ dance floor area is all sheltered.

    Before the day I felt completely relaxed knowing that The Dreys and The Dolls had got everything coveted.
    And on the day we was not disappointed in any way.
    Nothing could have gone better, the venue looked amazing, the guests all loved it.
    Having a small intimate 30 person wedding was one of the best decisions we made. The venue is huge but the way it’s laid out made us feel so together and like there somehow was 50 people.

    The staff on the day went above and beyond for us and our guests. The bar staff and the morning breakfast ladies all couldn’t have done more or been friendlier.
    In the evening the Gio and his bar staff went round and asked if guests needed blankets or drinks.
    We was having photos and Gio brought us over some
    Prosecco. They updated us on the money we put behind the bar and made sure drinks were flowing all
    day and night!

    Out of everything that’s happened recently with covid.. for this one day us and our 28 guests were allowed to feel truly happy and carefree.
    The team had all COVID rules under control and hand sanitisers were at all the entrances.
    Even though COVID rules had to be followed we didn’t feel restricted, and we feel the Dreys managed to somehow get that just right!!

    We can’t recommend this venue enough, we’re so sad it’s all over but so extremely grateful for what we had.
    Our wedding day wouldn’t have been what it was without The Dreys, Jackie, Kathleen & Natalie. Thank you all so much!! Cannot wait to visit in the future!! Mr & Mrs Baker xx

    Had an amazing day and everyone enjoyed themselves

    We had our wedding here in August and the Venue is beautiful. The staff on the day were brilliant at working round the rain. Nothing went to plan because of the weather but it really didn’t matter. Had an amazing day and everyone enjoyed themselves.
