The most perfect place for our perfect day

From the moment we drove up the driveway of The Oaks, we knew it was where we were meant to get married! Throughout the whole process, Julie and Rianna have been amazing, answering my (many) questions quickly, recommending suppliers, and being able to see a glimpse of events hosted there through their Instagram really helped with bringing the vision for our wedding to life! Not to mention the barn and the grounds are STUNNING! The attention to detail through the whole venue makes it the perfect place for an intimate celebration, and with it being a family business, you really feel the love that has gone into creating the space. Thank you so much to everyone at The Oaks for providing the setting and helping us to create our perfect wedding day!

Fantastic Rustic Woodland Venue

I don't know where to begin to say how perfect the team at The Oaks made our day for us.
There are probably too many things I could manage to mention so I've tried to list a few of the key highlights for us.

The first is the venue location itself, set in a stunning countryside location surrounded by woodland, fields and the lake, its just perfect.

Furthermore, the building itself is beautiful and fabulously maintained. I'd also like to add that everything was spotless. This includes the venue itself, the outside, the furniture and decor, and the bar, glasses etc.

The team were great and there were many staff on hand to help for our day. Julie, Rianna and a number of other team members were present throughout the whole day ensuring the specifics of the day went perfectly to plan.

We opted for the additional foliage package and it was definitely worth it. Rianna is incredibly skillful with these decorations on the tables, foliage archway and ceremony decorations were perfect. I could also see how much effort and time was put into organising these and it was really much appreciated and it all looks fantastic on the photos.

The partnership with Ridgway Caterers definitely works! We received so much feedback from guests about how much they loved both the wedding breakfast and the evening food. I think it helps that there is a long-standing relationship between the venue and the caterers that makes this whole process absolutely seamless.

We'd also like to thank the team for making our dream of and outside woodland wedding come true. We felt like they were as excited and invested in making this happen for us as we were and it was just beautiful!

It was also great to have the opportunity to go to the venue the day before to set up and not have to worry about collecting all our things at the end of the night as we could go back the next day to collect these (we had manage to accumulate a lot of things over the day and the team did a great job of collating everything for us to collect the next morning).

I can't not leave a review without mentioning the swings and the alpacas! I think a lot of the adult guests had as much fun swinging away and getting snaps of the alpacas as my two year old niece did!

We had a fantastic day in an amazing venue. I wish we could do it all again. Thank You!

Fabulous venue

The Oaks is such a stunning, incredible venue! We booked our wedding with them 18 months before the big day and they were so helpful from day one. They communicated everything and were so helpful and understanding. In the lead up, I arranged to go in and trial some table decor ideas which was super helpful. We had a meeting to run through the order of the day about a month before which helped to put us at ease before the day. Rianna and Julie made every step of the planning process a dream. On the day, Anna was the venue coordinator and made everything so easy and the day ran so smoothly. So many of our guests commented what a beautiful venue it is and the alpacas even came up to the fence to join the wedding reception. Thank you so much!

My husband and I are still absolutely beaming at how perfect our wedding was!

From the minute we viewed this venue we knew it was absolutely perfect for us.
The secluded, rustic woodland barn is so different from anything else locally.

As a couple, you are made to feel so special. From a private, personal viewing. To being the only wedding booked all weekend. This means you have time the day before to set up and the day after to clear up. This was super special to us meaning we didn鈥檛 have to worry about a thing on the day.

The team are so well organised meaning that they are constantly keeping the place tidy and on schedule. They collected everything up at the end making it super easy on a hangover to just swoop everything in to the car.
My visions were completely embraced and the team made it so easy for me to have the decor etc how I wanted. They even went above and beyond for me adding some extra decor in the log barn as it was too cold for us to get married outside, as we had initially planned.
Another thing that made it really special was being able to have our Labrador there who was the cutest ring bearer ever seen.

Our guests were blown away by the beauty of the venue and lots of people commented on this!

Our only little niggle was that after the meal, when the tables were cleared, the wine that hadn鈥檛 been drunk yet was all taken away. We had paid the venue prices for it and I think some were nearly full bottles. We never noticed this at the time and it didn鈥檛 impact our day, it was just feedback from our guests. If we had known this we may not have ordered as much wine.

The most special place and I wish we could do it all over again. I can鈥檛 thank you all enough! 馃馃馃

Shout out to our suppliers too, a lot who were recommended suppliers by the venue. 馃憣馃徎
