To be honest we dont even know where to start
Venue Service

By Emily and Tom, on 18 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Dec 2017

To be honest, we don't even know where to start. Many people in the last few weeks have commented on how we managed to pull off a Wedding in 6 weeks. The truthful answer is that you and Chris did it all for us. We couldn't have been happier with our Wedding, it was exactly what we wanted and that is because of you. Your flexibility, input and ideas made all the arrangements rather straight forward. You were quick to respond to our emails and requests in a very clear and comprehensive way, making it all so easy. The pricing was clear and exceptionally good value for money.. We also appreciated you allowing us to share breakfast with some of our guests the next morning, that is a lovely touch! Your venue was the perfect relaxed venue for our ceremony and reception. Chris was attentive to all our last minute questions and was excellent at providing input into the logistical planning of the day. We loved our day and felt relaxed enough to enjoy it, which was thanks to your organisation and your staff. EVERYONE loved the pies in particular! Finally, we would like you to pass on our huge appreciation to the staff who worked it who were amazing, what fantastic and dedicated staff you have. They were helpful and attentive to our guests and really approachable and friendly to speak to. Thank you again, it was a truly memorable day and we thank you, Chris and your staff for allowing us such a special memory.

Wonderful, personal and flexible

We had our wedding at the True Lovers Knot 3 weeks ago. It was the most wonderful day and I cannot thank the team, Chloe and Chris enough. The day ran smoothly, with Chris adding in all our little personal touches and being on hand through out the day. The food was brilliant! We had so much fun, and it was really relaxed thanks to the team and Chris. From day one when we met Chris to talk about our wedding he listened, shared his ideas and was so flexible. We had our perfect day.

Beautiful, relaxed and intimate
Venue Service

By Zoe Collins, on 04 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 19 Aug 2017

We can't thank you enough for everything you did to make our special day as perfect as it could be. From the very beginning nothing was to much trouble - I think our biggest problem was having to much choice of fantastic food, making it very difficult to decide! You were incredibly flexible and offered some great ideas that added some really nice touches to the day. You made everything completely stress-free. The children that came had a great time on your playground in the garden. When trying to decide where to have our wedding reception, we were looking for somewhere beautiful, relaxed and intimate with a great country feel. You ticked every box and more - we loved CAMPING! Please pass our thanks to your friendly and helpful staff which worked hard to look after all our guests, many of which commented on how fantastic the venue is. The True Lovers Knot will always have a special place in our hearts.

An amazing place

We had our wedding reception a week ago in the marquee, just an amazing place! Chris and Chloe are lovely and have been on hand for the past 10 months helping with all the preparations for the day. The day ran smoothly and to time, food amazing, really happy lovely staff, everything we asked for was done to our wishes, really can't thank them enough for making it so special for us!!

Our wedding
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Gibbons, on 27 Sep 2016Date of Wedding - 24 Sep 2016

Well all can say is that I cannot thank Chris and Chloe enough for making our wedding extra special. Chris did an amazing job creating all we asked for and more. Fully licensed we had the ceremony, breakfast and evening do all in a beautiful marquee. Every detail was perfect. A purpose built bar was in the marquee which made the supply of drinks easy. The food was delicious and the whole day was run calmly and smoothly. The disco was perfect. The staff fantastic. I highly recommend this venue for anyone's wedding. Chris you are a gem. Thank you.
