High quality, intimate outdoor venue

We got married at Waters Edge in August 2023. A stunning venue that provided us with the intimate outdoor experience we were looking for. Alex, Emma and Steve took time to listen and work with our suppliers to create a truly memorable experience for all fifty of our guests.

If you are thinking about booking Waters Edge, don't hesitate, you will not regret it!

Incredible wedding venue!

Water's Edge hosted our wedding in July 2023. From viewing the venue to the ceremony itself, Steve, Emma and Alex (the team behind the venue) were fantastic. They went out of their way to make our day extra special and they could not have been more friendly and helpful.

The leafy lakeside location made for a beautiful setting for our ceremony and drinks reception. The food was exceptional, with many guests complimenting the chef in the live kitchen. The courtyard area with festoon lighting, fire pits and garden games makes for a lovely area for people to mingle. Our guests were seriously impressed.

We are thrilled that we chose Water's Edge for our wedding venue and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wedding venue.

Perfect Wedding at the Most Beautiful Venue

We had the best day we could ever have wished for at the stunning Water’s Edge. The organisation before and on the day was excellent and all our wishes were catered for. The bridal suite, guest accommodation and venue are all fabulous and of such a high standard. Food was excellent and all of our guests had the most amazing time. It really felt like our day and that we were at home, given the time and space to enjoy the celebration. Thank you Water’s Edge!!!!

Beautiful Wedding Venue, Wonderful Experience!

The team at Water's Edge made our wedding reception! From start to finish they were incredibly accommodating, very helpful and just a pleasure to work with. The facilities at the venue are superb - from the bridal suite to the bar, the function room and the courtyard; the venue is just beautiful!!!
We got lots of positive comments from our guests about the food and drinks served, especially from those who had dietary requirements who noted how well they were accommodated for. We highly recommend reaching out to the Water's Edge team if you are looking for a wedding venue where you can do it all in one place and have a wonderful day with your loved ones!
