The setting and food were a big hit with our guests. The team were amazing from our first meeting all the way and so professional on the day dealing with absolutely everything - we didn’t get one question and just made everything so easy all we had to do was enjoy it. They also went above and beyond and we can’t thank you enough. If I could give you more stars, I would!
Autumn Wedding at The Orangery
Staff at the Orangery were brilliant and able to answer all of our questions about wedding fully and were easily contactable through the planning website we were given. The staff did a fantastic job on the day and set up the dinning hall well according to what we wanted. They were attentive the guests needs throughout the day and made it impossible for any moment to go wrong.
It was a perfect day!
Outstanding wedding venue
I think the secret to the success of the day is that The Orangery’s team are very organised in the weeks and even months prior to the day. The online Sonas portal is a godsend where you can upload all your suppliers, requirements, times, guest lists, seating plans, everything! The Orangery help you with various deadlines to make sure you’re on track and uploading things as and when they need to be submitted. It sounds daunting, but it isn’t! The team are always on hand to answer any questions you have in the run up to the event. You can email or send a message via the Sonas portal and you will have a guaranteed answer within 12 hours. You will also get to meet the team a few times before your big day. The initial meeting, the tasting and the final meetings are all there so you can meet face to face and work out any details that worry you.
On the day, it will be clear that The Orangery do weddings to perfection. It is the obvious that the team know their jobs inside out; they’ve done this before. But it also will feel like your wedding is absolutely the most important event in their calendar. It will feel like your wedding is the only wedding. You have the team’s full attention, and you will feel like they know you and your wishes inside out. As a bride it is so great to be able to get ready in The Wisteria Suite, right next door, so you can peek at the preparations.
In the lead up to the day, we did not hear a single negative comment about The Orangery. After the day, we have only received positive comments from our guests. As a bride and groom, you might be in your little bubble of love on the day, but all our guests were absolutely delighted. From the food to the service, everyone was thrilled. The waiting team looks a million dollars all dressed in black uniform, entering the room together and in sync, serving tables quickly but professionally.
The Orangery is blessed with close to 10 acres of grounds for your guests to explore, a stream, 3 ceremony area options, a spectacular breakfast room and a fantastic terrace. This truly is a special wedding venue. If we could do it all over again we wouldn’t change a thing.
I could go on and on but there will be nothing left for you to discover. If you’ve read this far then take our word for it, do something for yourselves and book The Orangery for your wedding. You will not regret it.
Amazing venue, incredible team
Incredible Venue and Amazing Team!
So many guests complimented the beauty of the venue as well as the professionalism! So many, including ourselves, we're so impressed with the well-oiled machine that was the food service!
The day-of-coordinators Beth and Chips were so on it and ensured we were happy throughout the day.
We came to the meetings with loads of requests to make our day that little more special and staff at The Orangery absolutely performed!
Thanks for contributing to making our day so special!
Amazing wedding day
The Best Day Ever
Beautiful venue with a wonderful team
The wedding day we dreamed of
The perfect day!
We got married a month ago today and it was the prefect day made completely seamless by Natalia and her team. The venue was absolutely stunning, the food was amazing and the staff were incredibly helpful. Everyone said how wonderful the day was and that I was the most chilled bride they had ever seen, and that is all thanks to the team at The Orangery!
The Best Experience!
The team also helped us reveal our pregnancy to our guests and were honestly amazing the whole way through!
Prices were fair and we really had the best time.
(Beth was also a dream as a wedding planner!!). I recommend you get married here or at least enquire:)
Just Simply amazing
