Best Day Ever!! Magical
Venue Service

By Chantelle Bradbury, on 10 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 27 Dec 2018

I wouldn’t know where to start regarding our wedding day. It really was the best day ever! Myself and my husband got married on December 27th 2017 at The Moat House, Acton Trussell. From the moment we went to the open day the staff were amazing and answered all of my silly and sometimes crazy questions/ideas and made us feel at ease. They even let me have real reindeer on the grounds which I had organised through a local charity! On the day they really did make us feel so special and kept checking everything was how we wanted and that we were okay throughout the day. I really didn’t want the day to ever end and I can’t fault any part of our special day. The food, the staff, the location. Everything was perfect!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone.

You are all fab

My Perfect Day
Venue Service

By Mike & Karen, on 10 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 28 May 2018

The venue & in particular our wedding coordinator couldn’t have been more accommodating in helping us achieve the informal relaxed party we wanted to achieve for our wedding . The positive feedback I’ve continued to have from my guests some 6 months on confirms my own positive view with many having enjoyed it so much they’ve asked if we can do it all again next year!

You Were Both Amazing
