    Amazing

    from the first phone call to the parting handshakes the morning after our wedding we felt very very looked after. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff here. The gardens are amazing for photos. The meal was excellent. The package price was very reasonable. I can honestly say we were made to feel very special on our special day. Choose this venue for your wedding and you will not be disappointed.

    Words can't describe how amazing this venue is

    Words can not express how amazing and perfect this venue is as a wedding venue. Craig, Tina and the whole team are amazing with nothing being too much trouble from the day of booking the the day after our wedding. A special mention has to go to Tina the co-ordinator here, she goes above and beyond at every step she can and nothing is too much trouble for her. You only have to ask her once and the job is done, she really is a star and made our day so special. The venue itself is stunning including the grounds, the area for the ceremony and the whole venue. All of our guests said how amazing this venue was and we have never heard so many people say how beautiful the food was and the best buffet they have tasted in the evening. Every guest has only gave us positive feedback. The hotel rooms at the venue are added bonus to allow you to spend the next morning with family catching up over breakfast, which is also divine. If you are looking at this venue then there really is no need to look any further, The Old Rectory really does tick every box and the staff could be the icing on the wedding cake. Thank you Tina, Craig and all the team
