Thank you for helping us have our perfect wedding at the Longhouse. Everyone commented how amazing the grounds were and the space for kids to run around and play was ideal for the relaxed and informal atmosphere we wanted. Excellent communication and support meant is was nearly a stress-free wedding to organise!

A Fantastic Setting
Venue Service

By Nel & Stephen, on 19 May 2020Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

We were married here, and not only is it a fantastic setting, but Matt and Danica run the place with brilliance.

So glad we chose the Longhouse!
Venue Service

By Katie & Mike, on 24 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Mar 2018

Thank you for all your help & patience leading up to, & on our 'Big Day'! You [...] have been so lovely throughout the planning process & I'm so glad we chose the Longhouse as our wedding venue!

Everything was perfect for us!
Venue Service

By Chris & Clo, on 27 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

Thank you for everything you did in helping us choose your beautiful venue for our special day. Your staff […] made sure everything was perfect for us & we couldn’t have asked for any more! Thank you again.

Thank you from the Groom's Mum
Venue Service

By Jo and Mike's wedding., on 15 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

A perfect wedding for Jo and Mike. On the day, Danica was calm and friendly, keeping us informed about the different stages of the day. The venue was fantastic. The gardens were glorious and perfect for a relaxed event where everyone was happy. It would be worth mentioning, in advance that guests who are arriving at the venue to stay the night before and may be late, will need to be settled in to their accommodation by a member of the wedding party and not staff at Mill on the Bruce. Breakfast the next day, was relaxed and enjoyable but a reminder of the the need to leave by 11.00am, would have been worthwhile! Obviously, we were all having such a lovely time that we didn't want to leave, Thank you to everyone at the Longhouse who made the day so memorable.

Best Day Ever

We cannot recommend The Longhouse enough
Venue Service

By Andy and Catherine, on 24 May 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Apr 2017

It is such a wonderful venue, and such a lovely setting that we simply had to get married there. From our first meeting with Matt we have felt nothing but supported and welcomed by team and we were very much guided through the process of planning a wedding. An absolute Godsend was Danica the wedding co-ordinator, who managed the entire event from start to finish and made sure that people were where they were meant to be, that the band set up on time, even making sure that the cheese board was out. Danica were truly exceptional and we cannot recommend her enough. All in all, 10/10 and top marks for an excellent venue, excellent support staff, excellent Danica and excellent Matt

Everything about it was spectacular!
Venue Service

By Jasper and Lucy, on 25 May 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2017

We had such a perfect day for our wedding at the longhouse. Everything about it was spectacular! Matt, the owner, is kind and knowledgeable with a real appreciation for anyone wanting to make their day really fun. I would not want to have a rigidly traditional, formal wedding here because the space, atmosphere and mindsets of everyone involved are geared towards a more free flowing, personal day. Matt was really happy to facilitate almost all of our plans and support all our guests, including a wheelchair user, to make the most of the day. It took very little effort to have the venue looking fantastic with the grounds already looking so great, but again we were pretty free to make it look how we wanted. A real added bonus of the longhouse is Danica, the wedding co-ordinator, she really helps to make the day your own. She stayed involved in lots of the planning to help make sure she knew how the day should run from our point of view as the couple. On the day, she was a fantastic support and made it all run incredibly smoothly even with our strange catering setup. Cannot recommend highly enough, but absolutely go and have a look for yourself.

Thank you

By Chris and Claire, on 29 Dec 2014

"Dear Matt & Team, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding day so fantastic! We had the most amazing day, The Longhouse was the perfect venue and we had so many compliments from our guests, and you were so helpful right from the very first time we met you. The day went so smoothly thanks to your discreet management of everything in the background and your flexibility both in the run up and the day meant we could have exactly the day we wanted. Thank you again"

Beautiful location,stress free and very safe hands
Venue Service

By Tamara & James Stubbs, on 16 Sep 2010

The Longhouse was first class. Matt and his team run a very efficient ship and made our day perfect. We did not worry the whole day about a thing due to the attention to detail and pre-planning and preparation offered at The Longhouse weddings by Matt and his staff. Everyone knew where they should be and what they should be doing at anyone time. This meant that as the Bride and Groom we could just enjoy the day, and we did, every minute. The guests too loved the venue and the gardens attracted a lot of comment as they are so well looked after and stunning. The sort of attention to detail you would expect from Matt and his team. The Longhouse was seamlessly and discreetly turned around for the band and evening dancing. It was absolutely brilliant. We can not recommend having your Wedding reception at The Longhouse highly enough. They can not do enough to make your day perfect. Importantly too there are no hidden extra costs like VAT or corkage fees which is really refreshing. We used The Longhouse’s recommended caterers 'Taste' and they provided a first class service and sumptuous food.

We can''t recommend the Longhouse enough
Venue Service

By Matt and Cathy Green, on 15 Jul 2009

We can''t recommend the Longhouse enough, everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly, helpful and made sure our big day went really smoothly. We were able to plan our day just as we wanted it and the venue itself is outstanding. All our guests commented on the relaxed, elegant look and ambience and the grounds are stunning. We wouldn''t hesitate in recommending the Longhouse as a Wedding venue, including the bunk bed accommodation and the breakfast the following day.
