Service above and beyond!
Thanks to Yvette and her team, we had planned the most amazing and dreamlike wedding possible within our budget. Nothing was too much trouble. Then Covid hit. To Yvette, this was a blip, nothing to get excited about. Somehow, despite last-minute u-turns in "guidance" by the government, we managed to have the most magical and amazing day. The venue is astonishing in it's beauty, the size is perfect for small to medium sized weddings. But the staff, in particular Yvette, will make your day spectacular!Sent on 13/11/2020

We cannot thank the team enough for making the day
My now husband and I had our wedding at the Ravenswood on 16 September. We cannot thank the team enough for making the day truly amazing. We had everyone complimenting the venue and how beautiful it was. Sam, Joanna, Michael, Yvette and Megan were so helpful and accommodating. Everyone felt welcomed including us. Not only were the grounds picture perfect, the food from the canapés to the evening buffet was delicious. So thank you so much to everyone at the Ravenswood for making our wedding day so perfect!!!!!!Sent on 08/10/2018
