Thank you from the Groom's Mum
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.
We cannot recommend The Longhouse enough
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!

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.

"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

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
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.
We would like to offer a big thank you to you all.
By Steve and Jacqui Dye, on 02 Jul 2009

The Longhouse was the perfect venue for our May wedding.
By Cathy and Pete, on 23 Jun 2009
In the run up to and on the day of our wedding all the Longhouse staff were relaxed, friendly and very helpful to all our needs and requests. Denise Bottrill’s company Taste are the perfect wedding partner to the Longhouse. Denise was very attentive and took control not only of our complicated catering arrangements but of the day’s events and our wedding started with a cream tea in Mill on the Brue’s beautiful garden which many of our guests said was the best they’d ever tasted! Throughout the preparations for our wedding Matt became a real friend and we were made to feel as special as though we were the only couple planning a wedding at the Longhouse! Mill on the Brue provided the perfect space for our wedding – a safe venue inside and out for our many young guests, beautiful gardens for our guests to enjoy, a fantastic view for our ceremony, lots of space for dinner, our band and dancing later and plenty of very affordable accommodation on site for the bride and groom as well as lots of our guests. We even had a string quartet play in the covered area for guests milling in the garden to enjoy. We had an absolutely wonderful day and have Matt and all others at Mill on the Brue to thank for making it so perfect.
Everyone thought that it was the best venue they had been to and had nothing but praise for the whole day.
By Julie & Andy Mason, on 04 Jun 2009
Just to say we had a wonderful day at your lovely venue. We couldn’t not have asked for more – your staff were brilliant, really helpful especially with our oldest guest who really appreciated their kind attention. Once again thank you for everything, Julie and Andy Mason
All of our guests fell in love with the Longhouse
By Helen and Andy, on 20 May 2009
We cannot thank you enough Matt for all that you did to make our day so special, the surroundings and your hospitality were unforgettable. Julie also was wonderful and we nearly took Mozart home with us. All of our guests fell in love with the Longhouse as we did when we first came to see you in the summer of 2008.
Thank you so much for all your hard work to make our wedding such an amazing day.
By Emma and Rob, on 28 Apr 2009
Everyone loved the venue and the food was amazing, and the whole day ran like a dream. Robert and I are so grateful for all you have done. Plus the weather was just fantastic, did you arrange that too?!
Thank you again for all you have done, you really did make our day so special and we will remember it for the rest of our lives.
