Perfect venue for your perfect day!
Venue Service

By Sarah & Stu Wallace, on 21 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 20 Aug 2016

We got married in August and although we had a very rainy day, Mart, Nigel and the team ensured not one if us got wet and that our day went smoothly. Everyone worked so hard and helped create a great at,ops here to celebrate our big day! From the minute we booked, up until the end of our day I can not fault the staff one bit! Food was excellent (and lots of it) We can not recommend this venue enough!

Jackson wedding

Me and my husband had our wedding reception at the parlour back in July 2016. It was truly the best day of our lives. Surrounded by our family and friends in this quirky, absolute beauty of a place. I work with a lot of brides in my work, I see behind the scenes, I hear about the stress of the day and the brides who tell me all that went wrong at their venue. And of course all the fabulous parts of their day too. Me and my husband did not go looking for a wedding venue. We sat at the parlour having our usual cup of whatever and obviously a piece of cake and we just said...'let's get married here'. So we did. I can't thank Nigel and his amazing team enough for the outstanding professionalism, amazing food and managing our wedding in the way we pictured. Anything and everything we wanted, we got!! There was no pressure, no stress and they really did go above and beyond. Not even that spell of rain where it poured down for half an hour could dampen the day. My guests had an amazing time. And 6 months on we still have people saying 'wow, did you get married at the parlour?' Thanks a billion, Victoria and Andy

The best day of our lives!

We were drawn to The Parlour and it was the only venue we looked at because we knew straight away that it was absolutely perfect. The venue is romantic, rustic and has a vintage chic style about it. The staff are professional and very experienced. I had a list of questions, but when I met with Nigel and Martin I didn't need to actually ask the questions as they'd had everything covered. I'm a worrier and a perfectionist and I couldn't believe how they'd thought of everything that I had in my head before I got a chance to say! I was very impressed. No request was too much , they allowed us time to dress the room the way we wanted, they ensured our cake maker had access to set the cake in place, they communicated with our saxaphone player to ensure he had his area not only in the ceramony room but in the garden and in the wedding breakfast area. They were so efficient and thought of everything, it rained that day but not one drop of rain fell on any of our heads, they had gazebos but also umbrellas held over our heads by the staff! We felt like royalty! The food too was outstanding, we felt very proud and every guest member were complimenting us on our choice of venue, and even told us it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. We love the venue so much that we now go to the super club every month. We relive our special day each time we visit. One other thing- it's very apparent that every staff member enjoys working there which adds something special to the whole venue. It truly was the best day of our lives .

Amazing venue, AMAZING food.

By Emma Crawford, on 13 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 04 Jun 2016

We got married 4th June 2016. The day was perfect from start to finish, every guest commented on the amazing food and relaxed atmosphere of the place, all of them said it was the best wedding they had been to. Martin, Nigel and their team couldn't do enough for us on the day, I would recommend the parlour to anyone wanting to book a wedding ?
