Thank you for everything!
By Mr and Mrs Milne, on 17 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018
Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding! From the beginging we knew we wanted the Pumping House and felt at ease with you from our very first appointment. Nothing was ever a bother, you were always quick at emails - even at silly o'clock in the morning when I was on nights!! And on the day you were amazing, as well as the rest of the team, I really can't thank you enough ?? Gail was also fantastic, the food was amazing and so glad I managed to see her on the day and thank her!
I wanted something different!
By Katie Homyard, on 17 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2018
My mum found this venue after I said "I want something different." The Pumping House is unlike anything I had ever seen before. Joanne, Amy and the team were wonderful not only on the day but in the run up to it - thanks to them we got our dream wedding day and I am eternally grateful for that. They managed to ensure that our guests were looked after, that the day ran smoothly and that a good time was had by all. Thank you!
We knew straight away it would be perfect for us!

We’ve just had our photos back from our wedding at The Pumping House on the 24th of March and can’t stop looking at them!
I had remembered seeing pictures of The Pumping House even before we got engaged. It must have stood out even then as it was the first venue we visited. We knew straight away that it would be perfect for us. Although we did still go onto see 4 other venues our hearts remained set on The Pumping House.
The Venue is stunning inside and out and The Quarters (accommodation) are breath-taking. Jo and her team were great to work with and made every effort to make sure everything ran smoothly, both in the run up and on the big day itself. Jo even made sure Dave and I didn’t miss on the canapés whilst we were whisked off for photos!
All the guests were commenting on how beautiful the venue looked and said how much they enjoyed the food. We both had an AMAZING day and couldn’t stop smiling!
On Cloud 9.

my husband and I absolutely cannot praise the pumping house enough. There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing the building and more importantly Jo and her team are.
We are going to be forever grateful - there is no where better. We are yet to come down from cloud nine and that’s all thanks to Jo’s hard work and loveable personality.
We love you guys so much xxxx
You ent above and beyond, exceeding expectations!
By Polly & Scott Montgomery, on 10 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Oct 2017
Dearest Jo & Amie,
Where do we begin ...
We cannot thank you enough for being our super heroes and for making our day simply ours, it was just incredible.
For all those late evening chats, your patience with all the lists, always listening, for remaining so calm and for making the magic happen.
You have created the most incredible destination and all our guests simply loved it; from the food to the building and of course the service. You and the team went above and beyond and exceeded our expectations and we will treasure your kindness and hard work forever.
Overtime we drive by and spot the impressive chimney we are reminded of so many happy memories and my tummy still flips.
Wishing you all the success for the future and heartfelt wishes.
We Fell In Love
By Victoria Baxter, on 28 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017
We fell in love with this beautiful venue almost instantly, despite there still being some building work done! Jo and Amie were amazing throughout - professional and prompt, but warm, friendly and up for dealing with anything. My husband and I are so grateful for all the hard work the team put in, and the Pumping House looked fabulous on the day. My bridal party stayed at the accommodation on site - spacious, beautiful rooms. I would not hesitate to recommend the venue and the team and I am so happy we got married there!
By Jade Holland, on 18 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2017
We went to an open day at The Pumping House for some inspiration as we had already booked our wedding at another venue but we fell in love as soon as we pulled into the carpark - We even changed the date so we could get married at The Pumping House. The venue itself is beautiful, there are no words you just need to go and see it yourself to appreciate it. Jo the venue manager was brilliant from start to finish and we can't speak highly enough of her. Nothing was too much trouble she went above and beyond for us. Our day was pure perfection and it was all down to Jo and her team. We can't recommend The Pumping House enough, it is an outstanding venue that allows all your dreams to come true!
Our Wedding was a dream boat
By Danielle & Ashley, on 30 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2017
The Pumping House - So grateful and thankful we found this place for our wedding. It's a real Gem. There's lots of things we wanted to mention in this review, here goes ....The staff were brilliant from start to end. Jo is the venue manager and greeted us with a big smile when we first visited and turned out to be one of the most helpful people we've ever come across. She's super dedicated, always goes the extra mile and worked in every way she could to provide us as much freedom as she could to arrange every element of our wedding, completely adapting to what we wanted. Jo was brilliant at keeping in touch and assisting with any issues or queries we had running right up until the big day, emailing at all hours to help reassure us and resolve any issues. The staff on the day including Jo, Aimee and all the other staff just had it. We never had to worry about anything and worked to our agreed schedule perfectly and clearly understand the importance of having everything in order and running like clockwork. We had the best day and were so pleased we took the risk on the diamond in the rough. When we first visited it was still a building site but we couldn't of been happier with the place come wedding day! It was everything we could have asked for and the whole experience was chilled and enjoyable because of all these things.
We thoroughly recommend this place and it can only get better when the last bits and pieces are added including the apartments which looked brilliant when we saw them just before completion!
Thank you to everyone at the Pumping House (especially Jo). Our wedding was a dream boat!!
All you can dream of...
By Katherine Watson Brides Stepmum, on 18 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jul 2017
This venue is all you could possibly dream of. Magical, truly magical. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. I have never seen a wedding run so smoothly. Well done Jo and your wonderful team. The decor was stunning. As mentioned in previous comments, the small details were exceptional. It's a long, busy day for the staff, but they were sincerely smiling throughout. I cannot thank you all enough.
By Phillipa Snowden, on 01 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 29 May 2017
The team provided my best friend outstanding service on 29.05.17. From start to finish the organisation and professionalism was second to none. Jo couldn't do enough for the bride and groom and ensured each and every guest was looked after.
I would highly recommend any bride to be to come and take a look around this beautiful venue. Spotlessly clean, excellent food and service and all the team enjoying what they do. I would also like to mention this venue as a great place to consider for your Christmas party and and business conferences.
Long may your business thrive. X

We booked our wedding at The Pumping House before the renovations had even been completed, the minute we drove into the woods, through those iron gates, walked up those steps and through the doors we loved it!! We saw the Pumping House from a construction site progress into the beautiful place it is now. Jo has been amazing since day one and both Jo and Amy on the day made everything so perfect, the hard work they both put in certainly paid off. There isn't a single thing we would change about the whole day. The food, the venue, the rooms, the service, the help and support that received throughout the whole process was amazing. Thank you so so much Jo and Amie for making our day so magical! We would 1000000000% recommend this venue to anyone. So many people who shared our day with us commented on how beautiful the building and venue was!!
We Could Not Believe Our Luck!!
By Hannah & Jamie Johnson, on 18 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Dec 2016
When we stumbled across The Pumping House as a wedding venue, we could not believe our luck! We loved the design-mix of old and new, and thought it would be a stunning location for our wedding...and we weren’t wrong. Jo and The Pumping House Team were phenomenal and our dream winter wedding would not have been realised without their incredible support. Jo was a massive help from day one - from the planning and organisation of the wedding (with many late night emails of support!), to the dressing of the venue in the most beautiful Christmas decorations, to finally, ensuring that the day was a breath-taking success. We would recommend this venue and its staff, including Gail and her wonderful catering team, whole-heartedly. Thank you so much for helping us to start our married life together in such a perfect way.
