Absolutely Perfect In Every Way!
Venue Service

By Laura Bull, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 05 Dec 2019

I am not really sure where to start with this venue, it is absolutely perfect in every way! From the moment we first walked in, I knew this was the venue for us. This became even more clear when we met Richard, he was just amazing from our first meeting. He just put us at ease immediately and was so organised that I just knew I could trust him with our special day. When the big day finally arrived both Richard and Laura were incredible, Laura even went to the effort to lace up my dress!! The food was delicious, all our guests were so happy and well fed. I cannot recommend The Old Vicarage enough and praise Richard, Laura, Chelsea and all the team for being just wonderful!! Everyone should get married here! ?? xxx

We got married here the beginning of October and I can truly say the staff and the day were faultless! The day ran so smoothly, calmly and effortlessly. The staff are truly outstanding at what they do from calming my nerves to keeping me on time with wedding prep that morning, some amazing organisation! The food was absolutely amazing too! I couldn’t imagine having our day anywhere else the decor is stunning and the bedrooms are amazing. Thank you to all the staff for making our dream day a reality xxx

Cant Recommend Enough!
Venue Service

By Victoria Parslow, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 11 Sep 2019

This is a beautiful setting. Really nice interior and exterior. Based in the stunning town of Southwell. It’s a really good mix of boutique with modern regarding the decor. It’s so’s like everything is brand new. This is perfect especially for an intimate family wedding. You won’t see people you don’t know eating in the bar because the venue is exclusive to yourselves. The staff are really attentive and will guide you through everything. They also make sure everything is immaculate and runs perfect for yourselves and your family. I can’t recommend this place enough. Thank you to all of you for a wonderful day!

Truly Beautiful Venue
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Gardom, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 05 Sep 2019

From the very first moment we stepped into the Old Vicarage we fell in love! ?? This was the place we both knew we wanted to get married at and booked the venue on the drive out of the beautiful grounds! We couldn’t wait!! Inside the Old Vicarage is stunning and sophisticated & the staff are warm, friendly and nothing is too much trouble. They made us feel welcome and we feel like we have become part of the vicarage family. They made the process of organising our wedding stress free. Laura, Chelsea & Richard - you are amazing!! We can’t thank you and all the staff enough. Our wedding day was the best day of our lives, from stopping the night before, getting ready in the morning, walking down the aisle & partying at night! And that’s all down to the staff at the Old Vicarage as well as there beautiful venue. Massive thank you to the chefs also - the food was out of this world!! And I know everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast and evening food. Breakfast the next morning was to die for! The Old Vicarage is truly perfect inside and out & we both can’t wait to return. ?? It has a special place in our hearts. We would definitely recommend this venue to anyone and are so happy we chose this truly beautiful venue for our wedding ?? Love Mr & Mrs Gardom X x x x

Where to begin...
Venue Service

By Chris and Jamilah, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2019

We both knew from the moment that we first went to view The Vicarage that this was the venue for us, the location in the beautiful town of Southwell, the first impressions as we drove into the entrance, the beautifully maintained gardens and stunning architecture. As we stepped inside neither of us could stop smiling at the elegance and romanticism of the decor and we couldn’t leave without confirming our date there and then. As our special day approached, we were reassured at every step to focus on ourselves and allow The Vicarage to organise all the details and planning and they also added in some great ideas that we hadn’t even considered. Chelsea, Richard and Laura were on hand from our arrival and the whole place was pristine and organised. The room for our ceremony was both intimate and romantic and as our guests arrived they were all in awe of the beauty of The Vicarage. The whole day flowed without a hitch, the food is as good as we have ever tasted and many of our guests agreed (especially those that had special requirements). The weather was fantastic which enabled us to spend most of the day in the stunning gardens. The service from all the staff was impeccable and yet they never appeared busy or rushed and all of our needs were met in every area. As for the bedrooms, both the indivuality and contemporary elegance is an understatement for The Vicarage. People always say ‘there is no such thing as a perfect wedding’ - we have to disagree, The Old Vicarage made our day perfect in every way and we would recommend anyone looking for their ideal venue to visit and have all your dreams come true. Thank you for the most incredible day of our lives!

You will fall in love
Venue Service

By Beth Holden, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 22 Jun 2019

We got married last Saturday and we had an amazing day. The very first time we went to see what the venue was like we booked it that day! we were so in love with the place with its white walls, contemporary furniture and classy chandeliers. we had a church wedding and then went straight to the venue. It was set out how we wanted and was beautiful. The day ran so smoothly and the staff were amazing at helping out and getting everything ready. At one point I had put my bouquet down somewhere and couldnt find it but they had kindly put in a vase with water. The food was out of this world! we had the burshetta to start, chicken for main and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Everyone of our guests said how beautiful the place was. We were lucky enough to be able to sit outside and everyone loved it and that gorgeous swing. If your into the modern and classy style venue this is the place! Thankyou for making our day perfect.

appalling standard of accommodation
Venue Service

By Katherine Sydenham-Young, on 24 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2019

A real shame as the wedding we attended was lovely but the accommodation was terrible. Extremely uncomfortable bed, no hot water for the bath (with no option of a shower) and an extreme delay in ordering and being served breakfast. I raised the issue of the bed while checking out and also emailed later in the week due to having sciatica all week after this (something I have never had), the response from the events manager was extremely poor, stating that I had existing back problems (which I don't!) and I should have raised the issue about the water at the time (erm, I paid £140 for the room, I don't expect to have to get someone to fix the water supply, for £140 I expect to turn the tap on and hot water to come out...), the place may look lovely but I would highly recommend you seek elsewhere for your wedding as this experience was appalling

The Old Vicarage, Managing Director at The Old Vicarage Boutique Wedding Venue responded to this review on 26/06/2019 10:07:43

My goodness this is one of our worst reviews ever, we really have upset you!!! This complaint started with us on check out expressing that we had caused a recurrence of a bad back because of an uncomfortable mattress, to two rather cutting emails accusing us of actually causing a new back complaint, escalating now to a full blown list of complaints in your review!?! As explained the mattress is brand new (replaced in January) but sadly we can’t alway please everyone’s preferences in respect of firmness. We’ve all had a lie on the mattress and we really can’t find any fault!?! We do however accommodate nearly 2000 guests a year and sadly this is the first complaint about a mattress we’ve ever had in more than 10 years. We are a quaint country house with only 8 rooms and we pride ourselves on our standards and service. Having recently won the Best Country House wedding venue in the whole of the UK. Which is something we are extremely proud of and work very hard to achieve and maintain. Sadly something seems to have really upset you during your visit for which we have already apologised for in two separate emails. In respect of the charge of £140 which includes vat, this is for accommodation and breakfast and we believe this is most reasonable charge for a beautiful room with a gorgeous sunken bathroom and freestanding bath and what most people review as the best breakfast they’ve ever had, with an array of choice and fresh locally sourced and well cooked produce. There was most certainly no delay of 40 minutes and strange how only your breakfast was uncooked and cold but sadly you failed to even inform us at the time so it could have been rectified this. Instead choosing to review us on every available reviewable space!?! We do wish you well and thank you for your time to review our establishment.

Simply Incredible
Venue Service

By Joanne Heeley, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 31 May 2019

The Old Vicarage is simply incredible and totally surpassed our expectations. We were wanting a classy, intimate occasion and this venue met the criteria ten fold. The food, accommodation, service, attention to detail (the list is endless) was all outstanding and I honestly couldn’t say a bad word. Particular thanks for providing a regular supply of toast which was being demanded by the little ones throughout the day! The venue is so beautifully decorated we didn’t have a lot to add, which is a huge positive when planning a wedding, and there was no stress for us on the day as it was all handled behind the scenes and seamlessly. Richard, Laura, Chelsea et al, you really are hidden gems. If you are considering getting married here then don’t hesitate to snap it up!

Look no further!
Venue Service

By Karishma, on 06 Mar 2020Date of Wedding - 04 Apr 2019

Our wedding was on 4th April 2019 and I still wish we could relive the magical day. I can’t express how amazing The Old Vicarage is from the stunning decor, to the amazing food and the truly wonderful staff. After we got engaged, this was the only wedding venue we looked around and straight away we both knew it was the one. They ensured our day run smoothly from start to finish and there is not one thing I can fault. The team were so helpful and gracious, they are clearly the best at what they do. If you are considering having your wedding at the Vicarage, look no further! It’s a very special venue. We still receive so many compliments from our guests about how fabulous it was.

Fell In Love With The Old Vicarage
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Dunham, on 11 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Dec 2017

From the moment we were engaged I had already chosen our wedding venue! I’ve never really been that girl who dreams about their wedding day but as soon I stumbled across The Old Vicarage on a friend of a friend’s Facebook page a few years ago I knew it would be perfect for us (despite not being engaged yet!) We both fell in love with the place as soon as we stepped inside. Through every stage of planning, preparation and build up Chelsea, Rebecca and Verity were absolutely fantastic. They understood how we wanted our day and made every step run smoothly. On the morning of our wedding, 21/12/17, they took over all of the arrangements so I could get ready in peace and this continued all day. Our guests were also very impressed. Not one had been to our venue before, they all commented on how relaxed and intimate our day felt, how delicious, and hot, all of the food was as well as how absolutely stunning The Old Vicarage is. Thank you so much to every single person involved who made our day amazing love Mr and Mrs Dunham
