    Amazing

    We had the most magical time. They were with us from start to finish helping to plan with catch up meetings and a menu tasting and the ceremony set up.
    On the actual date we were there for the whole day from ceremony to reception and the staff were so attentive and flexible to our needs. They even helped phone round every taxi firm in the area to find us transportation when we realised our lift had needed to leave early and we hadn't arranged anything else.
    I fully recommend Twycross to anyone looking at a zoo wedding, and if you can I would suggest booking an animal feed. We fed the otters and they are so adorable up close!!

    Created our perfect day

    We got married on the 19th May 2018 and truly had the best day of our lives. We were at the zoo from ceremony to evening reception.
    We chose the zoo as it was one of the first places we went on a date together, we both love going to the zoo and we wanted something truly memorable and special for our wedding...and we definitely made the right decision!
    The team did absolutely everything they could to make the day go smoothly and according to plan. We didn't have to worry about a single thing throughout the whole day. Guests had an amazing time and were so complementary about the day. Wonderful memories were made for all involved and we're so happy with how it turned out. Massive thank you to everyone who helped us plan and execute our perfect day - Jade, Katie, Elliot, James and everyone else involved, either beforehand or on the day....we can't thank you enough!

    Great, quirky wedding venue!

    We got married at Twycross Zoo on 18/02/17 and the day was amazing. We chose Twycross as it was somewhere a bit different from the traditional venues and was fun. It definitely exceeded both ours and our guests' expectations.

    We got married in the Windows on the Wild room, which has its own private entrance and is separate from the main zoo area. This room has lovely views across a pond area, which makes the room nice and light.

    Following the ceremony, we then had our drinks reception and photos in the Gibbon Forest which guests loved, before we ventured further into the zoo with our photographer (using the zoo buggy we hired- definitely recommended!) to get some couple shots.

    Following the photos (/time for guests to explore the zoo), we then returned to the Windows on the Wild room which had been set up with all our decorations and looked great. The wedding breakfast itself was delicious and seemed to go down well with all the guests. Being a coeliac this was an aspect of the wedding I was worried about, but I needn't have been as the chef was able to accomodate any dietary requirements (to which there were a few in our party)- including making a special gluten free cheesecake just for me!

    For the evening reception, we then moved into the Himalaya room (overlooking the snow leopards). This included a DJ who had been booked by Twycross as part of our package, and the use of the soft play facility (an extra cost, but definitely worth it if you have lots of children attending!)

    A big thank you to Elliot, Kellie, Jane & the team at Twycross for making our wedding day so special. All the staff were attentive and ensured the day went smoothly.
