    Outstanding through and through

    I honestly don't know where to start, other than praise them for their wonderful staff, attention to detail and the stunning decor that this venue has to offer (which goes without saying).

    Laura & Chelsea our wedding planners have been amazing from start to finish. We had many date changes due to covid. Laura was always so professional, reassuring and efficient. Her attention to detail is outstanding.

    The day itself went so smoothly, even after the groom arriving too early! We would like to personally thank them for making our day so perfect and special, and for all of their incredibly hard work.

    They have been amazing to work with throughout our entire experience (over 2 years) and have made everything so easy for us both! I can't put into words how fantastic both these girls are. They're a credit to TOV and it wouldn't have been the same without either of them. 

    The food was exquisite, all our guests commented how delicious it was and even I, a picky eater, ate every bite! We even asked them where they sourced their sausages from their cooked breakfast, they were out of this world!

    So yes, the venue is absolutely beautiful and the quality of their refurbishment is outstanding, but the staff there are the ones that make it what it is. They are incredible and deserve all of their achievements. The perfect intimate venue to have your special day in.

    I wish them all the best and no doubt they will keep creating amazing memories for each of their couples on their big day.

    Love,
    Charlotte & Matt

    A beautiful venue

    We wish we were back at TOV, like this time last week, dancing into the evening and eating quite possibly, the best fish & chips we’ve ever tasted!

    We just wanted to say that we had a fantastic wedding day and are so pleased that we waited to have our day, just as we had planned.

    All of our guests commented on just how beautiful the venue is (we know, that’s why we chose it) and how perfect a setting it is.

    Laura - for us you are the superstar of TOV, you have been a pleasure to meet with to discuss our plans and on the day you put everyone at ease. You were mentioned to us by a number of guests, saying how lovely you are and just the right kind of person to have around, in what can be quite a stressful and nervous time.

    Breakfast got a big thumbs up from everyone and we’re sad that we won’t get to stay over again.

    We have fabulous memories from an amazing day which will last us a lifetime.

    Beautifully decorated, intimate wedding venue in Notts, who are organised, experienced and very helpful.

    From start to finish this venue and its staff were truly amazing and went above and beyond for us. Package prices, with options to add on extras. The venue is decorated so well, there was no need to hire an extra supplier for this.
    We innitally looked around the venue, booked and received a envolpe of their recommended suppliers - we used some of these, who were also amazing and used some who we found on our own. The venue provides for you a planner and a working document, your 'wedding notes' and when you have finished this document, the wedding is planned. As wedding planning is very stressful, the help and organisation of this venue and its staff made everything so much easier for us and meant that we never once doubted the success of our wedding day itself. Our planner Laura was superb - she could not help us enough during our meetings with her and she was very friendly, informative and gave her genuine advise. The venue replied to any questions we had in between meetings and before the big day via email immediately, everytime.
    The wedding day itself was a huge success - the ceremony was lovely, the food was delicious and the reception was great. We and our guests had a fab day and there is no doubt in our mind that this venue had a huge part to play in this as it is so beautiful and the staff their were so helpful and organised.
    If you want a small, intimate wedding venue in Nottingham, we can not recommended The Old Vicarage enough as they really do know what they are doing and the venue is so lovely - we are confident that you will have a great wedding day here with the help of this venue!

    Sherwood wedding at TOV

    Our journey with TOV has been nothing short of amazing and, thanks to Covid, a little longer than originally planned (I’m not sure I’m ready for it to end). This meant we got to have our wedding in the new orangery, visit more open events & trial more canapés, as well as build a relationship with Chelsea & Laura making our day feel all the more special for the wait.

    The stunningly beautiful decor was the main reason we initially looked at TOV; the elegant, classic and modern look was just perfect for us. We also loved that the venue felt so light and spacious without being too big and that we would be the only Bride & Groom on our day! Upon visiting we realised TOV had so much more to offer than just it’s stunning looks & exclusivity…
    The staff, the bedrooms, the inclusive package, the food and… the smell!! (Even my guests asked what your incense was).

    Chelsea & Laura have been excellent at communicating, answering questions and scheduling meetings/paperwork. Nothing was ever too much or a silly question. Their positivity, professionalism and organisation have been fantastic. They were great at helping us to keep calm and organised on the big day, thank you! Jason was also fabulous at looking after us in the evening and regularly checked in to see if we were happy with everything.

    The overall package was incomparable to any other venue… the added bonus of 8 incredible bedrooms with breakfast the morning after, a choice of drinks and the most delicious food, plus Chelsea/Laura’s experience and support throughout the planning process. Everything we wanted all under one roof without having to involve multiple suppliers.

    The attention to detail was outstanding. Staff had arranged and set up our belongings such as sweets, photo frames and stationery combined with their own vases and candles which looked stunning. We also love how smart the staff look in their uniforms.

    Our day was perfect and we can’t thank you enough for ensuring everything ran smoothly and for helping us to have the day of our dreams.

    Thank you to all the staff involved 🤍

    AMAZING, everything we could have asked for was met and more!

    We had the most fabulous wedding day at The Old Vicarage Boutique.

    They made sure we had the best day and along with the weather we couldn’t have asked for more!

    Thank you so much again, it was the best day we could have wished for.

    The wedding venue of dreams ! The Old Vicarage is an extremely beautiful setting for a wedding on its own, paired together with the efficiency of the staff, the eye for detail and the smooth running of the wedding day itself this venue is perfect. I always expected that there would be some slight stress at some point on the day itself, however there was absolutely no need as this venue has it perfectly under control at all times!

    We married here in December 2021, a week before Christmas. We decided to opt for the exclusivity the evening before the wedding which I would highly recommend as it really does add an extra dimension to the celebrations. Everything was taken care of from the moment we arrived, we were able to just relax and enjoy time with our family. The wedding day was everything we had imagined and dreamed of, the most beautiful setting with a short and intimate ceremony followed by a truly delicious wedding breakfast, so many of our guests commented on just how good the food was! The transition in to the evening was seamless, with a great bar area serving great drinks. Everyone had a great day and thought the venue was amazing.

    We truly can not recommend The Old Vicarage enough, it most certainly is the perfect place to have the best day ever !

    Thanks again for everything !

    The perfect day and everything we could hope for!

    We simply can’t thank TOV enough for everything they have done. Which I am sure they must hear all the time!

    Every guest told us how incredible the venue is and couldn’t believe how perfectly and seamless everything went, many asked how we had found it as couldn’t believe something so beautiful, personal and different to other venues existed.

    They also said how wonderful all of the staff, both in the day and evening were, very helpful and professional and just made the whole day even more special.

    It genuinely felt like a dream and I would be at TOV every day if I could!

    From the most incredible food, both the breakfast and the evening pizzas were some of the best food we have had and all our guests enjoyed them too!

    It simply was everything we had dreamed of and then some!

    Absolutely Perfect In Every Way!

    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

    Cant Recommend Enough!

    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 clean...it’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

    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...

    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

    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.
