Out of this world

Me & my husband had the most magical day at the Parsonage last Sunday - it truly did beat all our expectations. The venue was just fantastic and catered for all our families needs. The staff couldn't do enough to help us all, nothing was too much trouble. We was blessed with lovely weather and the gardens and setting was just beautiful. A special mention to Louise who was absoutly lovely from the very start helping us with number changes and any questions we had. Don't think twice about booking this venue for your wedding , the lengths they went too for the price you pay will give you the day you dream of. A sincere thank you to all at the parsonage from me and my new husband.

Unforgettable wedding venue with incredible staff.

The Parsonage hosted mine and my wife's vow renewal, which was set up like a full wedding event and everything went perfectly. The staff at the Parsonage were exceptional and went above and beyond to ensure our plans went ahead smoothly and that everything was just the way we wanted. We stayed for two nights in the bridal suite and had a wonderful room with use of their ideal nearby spa as well. A perfect time had by us that all our family and friends have made many wonderful comments on.

What can we say! Wow we had the most perfect day. Staff were excellent and worked so hard to make everything just right. Louise the wedding planner was so lovely she went above and beyond. She even organised a tv in the conservatory so we could all watch the grand national. Janet was so kind and helpful, she organised the day perfectly thank you so much!
Food was perfect, bar staff were brilliant! We just wish we could do it all again!

Best day ever

From the get go our wedding experience with the parsonage has been fantastic.
Louise and Kate are always on hand to answer questions and settle any nerves/worries you may have.
The choices appointment is really helpful, you go through the whole day and Louise offered suggestions if we wasn’t sure on anything.
On the day everyone was absolutely amazing, not one member of staff had a frown on their face, everyone was so helpful and attentive making the day flow seamlessly.
The hotel and grounds are beautiful for photos, and the fireworks through their recommend supplier we’re amazing!
All of the food was lovely (not that I got chance to eat a lot unfortunately!) we upgraded on most things but it was definitely value for money!
I cannot recommend The Parsonage enough, I wish we could do our day over and over again as it was perfect 🥰
The only downside was that guests had to use the bar in the reception room which was obviously decorated ready for the wedding breakfast. So guests saw that room prior to us actually going in there. It’s not the end of the world but it took some of the surprise out of that part.

Our Wedding Day

From start to finish, from rearranging the date and after our wedding, The Parsonage Hotel and Spa went above and beyond. Everyone was so friendly and easy to work with, nothing was too much for them and everything, absolutely everything we wanted to happen on our big day was catered for. Even very last minute adjustments. I wouldn’t have changed a thing. We thank them all from our hearts x

Mr & Mrs B

We have just got back from our honeymoon and we wanted to take a moment to get in touch to say a huge thank you to you and all of the Parsonage team.

We could not have had a better day. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to the moment we left we were really well looked after. We appreciate your help and guidance in helping with our planning too. A special mention to the DJ, who was incredibly professional, listened to what we wanted and responded to our random and demanding music requests - we couldn't have asked for better, please pass on special thanks to him.

What a shame we can't do it all again!

We held our wedding reception at the parsonage on the 1st July 2017, and I can say it was the best day of my life! They were so organised! Help and planned my wedding with every detail, and nothing was a problem to them. They gave us ? and I couldn't fault them.
