    Beautiful venue and wonderful staff

    We wanted a venue with plenty of outdoor space for our oversized guest list to run around in and Tournerbury was just perfect. The coastal setting and huge woods made it really memorable for our guests and gave our photographer lots of inspiration for some lovely pictures.

    There is a choice of two ceremony locations depending on the weather conditions, and either would have been beautiful. We had our ceremony on the Victorian gazebo which was really lovely. The marquee for the reception is well equipped and we appreciated the flexibility Tournerbury gave us to make it our own - definitely no two events will look the same here.

    We had good communication, especially in the few months leading up to the day - Lucy is an admin ninja who inspires such confidence. She and the rest of the team were exceptionally accommodating on the day and unblinkingly took on additional little jobs as our setup got mildly fraught!

    Our only grumble would be the slightly cynical pricing of some of the "Finishing Touches". Paying over £5 for each person's chair for the ceremony (with VAT!) felt a bit much - this seems like a basic element of the hire. Equally, we balked at the idea of paying £800+VAT to stay in the cottage overnight (which we'd been using all day and so would need cleaning anyway...) and were disappointed not to be able to let our guests camp on site.

    These niggles aside, we had a wonderful day and would certainly point our friends to Tournerbury for a big wedding in a gorgeous natural setting.
