Best day ever!

I honestly can explain how incredibly amazing Jemma and the team are! They made sure that we had the best day ever and it really was! There is not one thing I would change about our day it was perfect in every way! The venue is stunning with an incredible view for photos. All guests said how lovely the rooms were and very very clean. Food was incredible lots of compliments again. Wedding venues can be so ridiculously overpriced! This place was well priced and we were offered so much more than other venues would offer us! We can’t thank you all enough for what you did for our special day!

Our wedding day was amazing!

We married at the Wellington Arms in Stratfield Turgis on May 11, 2024. We had our ceremony outside in the rose garden, which looked stunning on the day. Our day was perfect and all our guests had a great time. Jemma and her team did a fantastic job organising everything in the lead up and on the day. The food was delicious and the service was great. Everything was taken care of and was perfect. A big thank you to the team at the Wellington Arms for making our day so special!
