Stunning venue, amazing staff
Venue Service

By Elizabeth, on 08 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2018

Stunning venue, amazing staff, special thanks to Jo, and Sam Wedding coordinators, we could not have done it without you. So many accommodations were made for us and our wedding, changes last minute due to weather (hottest day of the year so far). The venue has lovely rooms, the Beatrice suite was just amazing, and the evening DJ rocked the dance floor. An incredible day for our wedding, thank you to everyone who made it possible! Xx

July 14th 2018 wedding
Venue Service

By Sarah and Chris, on 08 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 14 Jul 2018

My husband and I got married here recently July 14th 2018 on a beautiful English summer day! The planning, lead up to the wedding were superb with help from the whole team at the Ravenswood. They were even so kind to take time to understand how we wanted personal additions and decorations at the Ravenswood- to help the Ushers assemble it all on the day! The wedding day itself was wonderful and ran smoothly thanks to their help and personal gestures to ensure bride and groom were happy! The grounds were looking stunning and such an improvement already since their ownership for only around a year. I can only imagine how the venue will continue to grow and become even more beautiful and exciting with numerous new ideas and additions such as the getting ready room, refurbishment to the bridal suite etc! We really had a wonderful day and would highly recommend it as a wedding venue for those looking.

My Son chose the Ravenswood for his wedding
Venue Service

By Bernice Sheridan, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

My Son chose the Ravenswood for his wedding on Saturday 16.6.2018. Jo, Sam and James and all of the team did a fantastic job. Attention to detail and nothing too much trouble. They were able to marry outside in the small chapel which was very special. We had a lot of children in our party to organise and cater for and that was done without any fuss. My daughter also got married here five years ago. The atmosphere, the grounds, the building itself all add to the perfect wedding venue. Picture opportunities are endless inside and out. Thankyou to everyone who was part of our celebration on Saturday and who worked so hard to make the day as perfect as could be.

My Brothers wonderful wedding
Venue Service

By Faye Hill, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

My husband and I got married here 5 years ago now (when it was still with the previous owners) and had the most amazing day! So we were over the moon when my brother decided to hold his wedding here too. We were very excited to actually attend someone else's wedding and see it from another view! Well, it did not disappoint!! It was the most magical day! The getting ready room was beautiful (this wasn't here when I got married). The food was amazing and the staff were not only very helpful and spot on with their service, but also friendly, smiley and chatty too (especially the evening staff behind the bar). Everyone had the most wonderful day! The bride and groom were treated like royalty and their every need catered for. Taking on such a big venture must have been a very scary thing, but I have to say, the new owners made it the perfect day! And dare I say...almost better than ours ? Well done to all the staff at the Ravenswood and congrats to my brother and his new wife! What a way to start married life ?

My new wife and our guests where treated like roya

Me and my partner got married at the Ravenswood on Saturday just gone the 16/6/18. I am very emotional even writing this review as me, my new wife and our guests where treated like royalty throughout the whole day. All the events leading up to the day like food tasting etc where equally as amazing. The grounds are breathtaking and We are 100% sure that if we used another venue it would have never ever been as good as it was. The attention to detail was spot on and every little need was catered for. We had lots of children and they where all looked after as with as much attention and care by the staff as the adults. Me and lots of the guests stayed the night and all of them said how amazing the rooms where. The breakfast was so so good and had something for everyone and was all quality well cook food I went up for seconds and thirds, the only negative thing I can say about our whole experience was that we had to go home, I could have stayed for days. Thankyou so much to all the staff for making our day and stay so special (i ended up crying writing this #memories)

We had the best day at the best venue ever!
Venue Service

By Charlie Clarke, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

My husband and I got married here on the 2/6/18 we had the best day at the best venue ever! Sam you were perfect and we couldn’t of got married here without you. You have some amazing staff, Jo was great and had everything completely under control and it wouldn’t of been as perfect with out her. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name Of the main waitress that looked after us from Dinner all the way to the last drink in reception but she is an absolute credit to the Ravenswood. Nothing was too much trouble and the venue and grounds are absolutely incredible. Makes me a little teary thinking about how perfect it all was and how that was down to this venue and all its staff. Can’t thank you enough for saving this little gem Sam! Thanks everyone! Highly recommended without a shadow of a doubt. Love to you all ? Mr and Mrs Clarke ?

The most perfect and amazing experience at The Rav
Venue Service

By Shannon Gadsby Clifford, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Apr 2018

My wife and I got married on 11th April this year and had the most perfect and amazing experience at The Ravenswood. From the very beginning Sam and the team worked with us to make our dream day come true within a very limited budget. Our day went without a hitch; the food was gorgeous (so much so that people are still talking about it!), the weather allowed us to get married outside and the grounds looked breathtaking in our photos. Everyone commented on how stunning the venue is and how lucky we were to find it, and we couldn't agree more. From the very first time we looked at the venue we couldn't picture our day being anywhere else and the Ravenswood will forever hold a place in our journey as a newly married couple. Thank you so much, from Shannon & Katrina

Cant recommend this venue enough
Venue Service

By Emma Hooton, on 18 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Nov 2017

I’m not sure where to start in thanking Sam, Annie, Jo and all the team at the Ravenswood, you took on our wedding when we had to change venues with only 6 weeks notice and were absolutely amazing- you took a lot of the stress away in the lead up to the day and went out of your way to help as much as possible. On the day everything was perfect, it all ran smoothly and the venue looked stunning. Thanks to you we have amazing memories of our big day which we will treasure forever. All of our guests have commented what a fantastic day it was too. Can’t recommend this venue enough!! Thank you SO much ? Emma & Alex xxx

Fantastic staff, stress free day!
Venue Service

By Margaret Garrard, on 20 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 29 Jul 2017

The staff at the Ravenswood are the kind of dream team you can only wish for on your Big Day. They went above and beyond to help create a fantastic, joyful and seamless day (in unbelievable short notice!) for us that we will remember forever. The space is so flexible and the grounds fantastic. Though the English summer weather didn't cooperate for us, the venue set up meant that the rain in no way spoiled the day. Highly recommended for a stress-free and joyful day!
