    Fantastic day, fantastic team, fantastic venue!

    We could not recommend Samantha and her team at the Lodge Country Inn more. Highly professional, caring and just lovely. They made the whole experience easy and stress free. Even having to postpone a year due to Covid was simple and fuss free.
    The venue itself is just beautiful, spacious and clean. The day could not have gone better and it's thanks to Samantha and her wonderful team.

    The Lodge Country Inn's reply:

    Hi Emma,

    Thank you for taking the time to write such a wonderful review.
    We certainly have been through some testing times, but we finally got you to the aisle, in which you thoroughly rocked it.
    It was a beautiful day all round, and thank you again for letting us be part of such special memories.
    Kind regards

    A Very Organised Wedding Experience

    Sam and her team were excellent during the preparations for our wedding, the 18-month postponement and on the day. The day itself was exceptionally well organised and the venue itself looked amazing.
