Hi Hannah Yes settling in well, just feels very weird at the moment. We had such an amazing day with thanks to you guys there. You have just been amazing from the start right up until the end. Nothing was too much effort for you. All our guests said it was the best wedding they have been too! And how amazing the venue and staff were! From the bottom of our hearts we thank you so much for everything you have done for us. You truly are one in a million. We have made so many friends from our wedding too. And if it's ok we would love to pop in and see you after our honeymoon? (Obviously book a slot to see you!) We will be poping a review up in the next few days too??. Thank you again. Words can't express how grateful we are. you are amazing!! See you soon Mr and Mrs Melita.

Only writing this to avert anyone else from making the mistake of booking this venue for their wedding like I did. As soon as they have your deposit they will lose complete interest in providing any kind of service. We hired the marquee for a summer wedding. The marquee linen was disgustingly dirty and the flooring is like a springboard which completely destroyed our wedding cake. The venue has no running water which we and our catering team were not informed of. The portable toilets they provide ran out of water halfway through the event which i am told has happened on previous occasions and yet has not been resolved. This left my quests unable to flush the toilets or wash their hands. On top of the sorry state the venue was in, it turns out they had another wedding in the venue two day's before and hadn't cleared up which meant they were cleaning well into the start of our wedding. I had raised my concerns with the venue months before the wedding but to no avail. This was a once in a lifetime event for me and my wife and Trunkwell House royally messed it up. Their response to all the issues is that they were not aware or guests hadn't approached them to complain which in someways would be fair had it not been for the fact staff were nowhere to be seen on the day. My advise to anyone considering this venue is STAY AWAYYYYY.

Dear Dilwar, We have already replied to all the queries that have been mentioned above and would like to re-iterate again. We dry hired the venue and we request the caterers to come and see the venue and facilities which was sadly not done. When the company were setting up your cake my operations manager did actually notice that it hadn’t been put together properly and commented on this because they hadn’t aligned the internal dowels correctly so this is another thing that we couldn’t control. It is unfair to say that we had no interest in your concerns as you emailed me previously and I came straight back to you. You wanted bedrooms the night prior but these weren’t available and you also wasn’t happy with your booking. There weren’t any issues reported with the toilets and there was also staff tidying these and the water was working fine. We have never had previous issues with the toilets so I’m not sure what the decorators would be referring too. The guests weren’t directed to the house because no one told us there was an issue with the toilets. Any venue have would have back to back weddings and all was done to keep the venue ready for your wedding.

Hello Lauren, We hope your are well and trunk well is keeping busy. We are sorry this is a little late but with getting back off honeymoon and settling back into work life it's been busy, as you can imagine. We just want to say a massive thank you to yourself and trunk well team for all the hard work and effort with making our special day unforgettable. Everything was perfect, how we imagine and planned it from the first time we stepped into trunk well and said yes to setting up our wedding there. With the lead up to the wedding being stressful as you know so well it was a treasure to see our special day just flowed by with no faults or queries. There was not one single person who didn't put all there effort into making it flow. We honestly can not thank you enough. We will definitely put some kind words about trunk well into trip advisor. We have already recommended trunk well a few times to people who are looking to celebrate any occasion. We hope you take care of yourselves and hope to see you again at some point within events. All the best Michael and Rebecca Dean Xx

Hello Rosie An enormous thank you to you and your colleagues for making Sunday such a special and fun day for our family and friends. Everyone has commented on what a wonderful venue Trunkwell is and how friendly the staff are. Thank you also for dealing with the paramedics so efficiently. The lady who was taken ill is my son's fiancee's mother, Anne. She is back home and being monitored. We're all hoping she will be as right as rain very shortly. Peter thoroughly enjoyed himself and I'm so glad I chose Trunkwell as a venue. My only regret is that it made me realise how much I miss doing events planning. You have the best job going, even when clients get a bit demanding (as I know from experience)! If you ever need a part time sidekick let me know!! Thanks again. I have put a review on Facebook. If I can do anything else for you just let me know. Kind regards Beverley
