Great venue / service could be better

Venue is absolutely stunning.
Staff on the day were good & couldn’t do more.
Was sold on the basis we’d have a wedding portal to help us throughout - this is only for a traditional wedding. If having a festival wedding there is nothing.
Personally I felt alone & wasn’t confident until the meeting 8weeks before to go through plans for the day- I felt if anything was not ok it was late to make amendments.
As a second wedding I knew what I wanted but was chilled, however for some this may not be a good experience.

On the day - we had pre arranged a tab with conditions, thus didn’t seem to be adhered too. I had several decorations go missing & I got no response.

We received no contact after the wedding to ask for feedback or to ask if everything was ok

We had the best day celebrating our wedding at The Vines!

We had our wedding here recently and wow what a venue! It’s such a pretty venue and so many of our guests commented on how lovely it is. It has amazing locations for photos, in the sunshine and rain! And we had a mixture of both on our day. But the best thing about the Vines has to be the team that work there. They couldn’t do enough for you. They made everything seem effortless, they were so kind and accommodating and we are so pleased we chose the Vines as our wedding venue. From Becky our duty manager on the day - who was absolutely fabulous and couldn’t have done more for us - to the bar staff, waiting staff, DJ and just everyone we encountered - they were all fabulous. Thank you so much!
