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.

Just the most amazing, memorable wedding EVER!

Venue Service

By Nina Sorenson, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

Cannot thank Jackie, Jo and all the team at The Dreys enough for making our wedding day on the 30th June so special and memorable. This venue is a true one of a kind, with a relaxed and bohemian vibe, and you wont find better people to help make it the best day possible. They also have amazing supplier recommendations, from flowers to photographers, and everything in between. The accommodation is so chic and accessible, and the breakfast in the morning was a great touch. I would HIGHLY recommend the Dreys for anyone looking for a beautiful outdoorsy wedding or celebration. Thanks again!

The Dreys is a very special place
Venue Service

By Liz and Sam, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Apr 2018

We are still on a high after our wedding at The Dreys back in April (appologies for the late review!). From the initial planning stage, Jackie and the team were absolutely fantastic and guided us (a pretty much clueless bride and groom to be) through the process in the most stress- free manner possible. In the final weeks, they managed to get the venue looking beautiful in spite of the snow delaying their preparations. Wen we arrived to see the venue in early April, we were thrilled to see the transformation into a georgous setting for our wedding; Jo did an amazing making the shelter and marquee look stunning, and the whole team made sure everything went smoothly. Even in April with no leaves on the trees, the woodland setting was magical and we, along with our guests, had the most wonderful day. The Dreys is a very special place. Thank you! Liz and Sam x

Thank you for making our wedding so magical
Venue Service

By Connor Hughes, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Sep 2017

It’s been just over a week and everyone is still blown away about how amazing our wedding was. The venue is spectacular but even more so, Jackie and Dave are two of the most helpful and professional people we have ever had the pleasure to work with. Their service and help compliments this magical venue. I am so tempted to get divorced just to do it all again. Thank you so much for making our wedding so magical.

It was everything and more
Venue Service

By Samantha Moriarty, on 07 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Aug 2017

Our daughter got married here recently. And what a day it was. I can not thank the team at The Dreys enough for making her dreams come true. It was everything and more, the whole day was a magical fairy tale and felt very personal. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff are very welcoming. The accommodation is excellent and quirky & fits in with the surroundings. Lots of different seating areas to enjoy the atmosphere. Absolutely loved it this venue is 100% bang on. Just a shame it was all over so quick. Would completely recommended The Dreys. Xxx
