We held our eldest daughter’s wedding ceremony and reception at West Street Vineyard yesterday. I don’t normally post reviews but felt I had to in this case to acknowledge the outstanding care, service, food and wine that Jane and her team provided. There were 120 of us, starting with the ceremony at 2pm and finishing with the dancing at midnight. A truly memorable day , and I couldn’t recommend this venue highly enough. Thank you, Jane, to your whole team - for your 5 star service and personal attention.
Our perfect day
By Lucy Corke, on 16 Jul 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2019
We had our wedding at West Street Vineyard in July 2019 and we couldn’t recommend it enough.
Jane at West Street listened to our vision for our wedding and worked with it to deliver an absolutely perfect day. Every detail, decoration, layout, music, meal couldn’t have been more spot on. Not an eyelid was batted when we said we wanted our dog to be the ring bearer, the venue is completely dog friendly. And the flowers! The staff at West Street organised all of the floral centrepieces and they were so beautiful!
The venue is absolutely stunning, and we were lucky enough to have wonderful weather for our wedding. The dream was to marry outside, but Jane had the indoor plan B option already prepared should we have needed it.
Not only did the team deliver for us, they delivered for our guests. Our guests couldn’t praise the staff, the food, the wine(!!) or the venue more highly, with many looking to visit for lunch or wine tasting.
All of the staff at West Street couldn’t have done more for us before, during or after our wedding. Thank you so much Jane and all the staff at West Street for delivering the most perfect day.
We couldn't have wanted a better Venue for our Wed
By Kay and Malcolm Campbell, on 22 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Jun 2019
We had our Wedding on 8th June 2019 at West Street Vineyard. It was the most amazing day and we could not have wanted our day to go any better. Jane and her team are very highly skilled in what they do to offer a most amazing experience.
We had a few meetings with Jane in the run up to the big day. She is so creative in her planning and gave us loads of extra ideas. Nothing is too much and she goes above and beyond to help source things to help us achieve the look we wanted.
The day itself was amazing. Beautiful decorations and flowers. She even went as far to find out the exact flower I was using in our bouquets so it matched her flowers at the venue. The Food was amazing. We had a Scottish theme throughout our wedding and she tailored the menu to suit it. Haggis - so good! Wine was plentiful and delicious. Our evening guests were treated to delicious tasty street food of curry with Indian accompaniments. It was nice for our evening guests to get a proper meal too.
The after party is held in her cool downstairs Cellar, which is very modern in décor and can light the bar in a chosen colour with a back drop of the wines in storage behind a glass wall . It really made the perfect atmosphere for a good old knees up! The dance floor was packed all night. The Vineyard is just so beautiful for your wedding photos and if having more as the sun goes down- just a gorgeous backdrop.
Thank you so much Jane and your professional team for such an amazing wedding day.
Kay and Malcolm
Most unique, breathtaking venue
By Kate & Scott Marshall, on 13 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 30 May 2019
What can I say that hasn’t already been said about this breathtaking venue?!
We had our wedding at West Street last month and I can honestly say it was a day filled with perfection.
We initially met Jane 18 months ago and from that first meeting we knew immediately that this was the venue for us. We were looking for something unique and relaxed with an Italian feel and this venue ticked all the boxes.
It struck us straight away that Jane, with her super-organised approach and natural flair for detail, our day was in the best possible hands and she did not disappoint.
It is clear that Jane has put all of her passion in to making her business a success and everybody I talk to comments on the spectacular food and wine available as well as the impeccable, welcoming service.
Apart from the bouquets and buttonholes, Jane and her team created stunning floral arrangements and place settings for our day, also offering their own advice about how we could develop our ideas in to a magical event.
I was considering whether or not to hire a wedding planner for our day, however this really wasn’t necessary as Jane was on hand every single moment day and night in the lead up to the event, as well as on the day.
She organised everybody seamlessly and made special efforts with our most important guests.
Our day was simply magical, filled with love and happiness thanks to Jane and her team.
We cannot thank you enough and we will be back!

Our amazing wedding
By David & Sophy Walker, on 04 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 24 Aug 2018
We got married at West Street Vineyard on 24th August 2018. After the long, hot, sunny summer we were hoping that it would last into the bank holiday weekend, and it did.
We loved the idea of a wedding in the vines, the Wedding gazebo at West Street is just the most wonderful, romantic setting. Our guests were sat amongst the vines too which I'm fairly sure will have been a first for them.
We were quite late to the organisation of our wedding, just 4 months from finding a venue to saying "I do.."
Jane and her excellent team of managers and staff were so attentive, no detail was too small and often she was able to steer us in the right direction where needed.
The venue is perfect for weddings, we had 85 "sit down" guests and a further 25 "evening guests". The layout of the round tables in the restaurant gave us quite an intimate feel.
The quality of the food and wine was first class, the menu having been personally selected and tested by us beforehand.
The wine cellar and bar was a brilliant venue for us to have a DJ and dance the night away. We had a few "oldies" that wanted to stay upstairs in the restaurant area and the bar up there was kept open for them.
We cannot thank Jane and her team enough for making our day so special and memorable and would recommend west Street Vineyard as a superb place to hold a wedding.
Amazing wedding day, absolutely no stress!
By Olivia Smith, on 06 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 18 Aug 2018
We had our wedding at West Street in August and couldn’t have been happier! From the start Jane and her team made us feel completely confident in them and the venue, a confidence which was proved beyond doubt on our big day.
Everything went without a hitch and I spent the day enjoying myself and feeling so relaxed, I didn’t stress about a thing! The entire team are professional and worked so hard to make our day amazing. Jane is a passionate and motivated wedding co-ordinator, coming up with fantastic ideas and guiding us through the entire process. I am from the UK and my husband is South African and from the start Jane really got into the idea of the two countries merging on our day. We felt that Jane & her team really went above and beyond for us and I can’t recommend them highly enough.
The venue itself worked perfectly for us and we were lucky enough to have the ceremony outside amongst the vines which was even lovelier than I had envisioned. The building works so well, with a separate bar/party room downstairs and the upstairs used for dinner and then as a more relaxed space for the evening. The decorations were simple and beautiful and the flowers we had on the tables and at the ceremony were stunning. The food was absolutely fantastic and the wine was gorgeous.
Overall we had a wonderful day, we couldn’t have felt better looked after and we can’t recommend West Street highly enough.
Our Wedding - December 16.12.17
By Aileen and Daniel Waters, on 12 Jan 2018Date of Wedding - 16 Dec 2017
We had our Wedding at West Street Vineyard on the 16th December 2017 and we can honestly say we had the best day of our lives and Jane and the team played a huge part in this.
We originally met with Jane in September 2016 and after a day of Wedding Venue hunting, sitting with Jane, drinking the beautiful wine and eating a gorgeous dinner we instantly fell in love with the venue and Jane!
We wanted a very untraditional Wedding and West Street couldn't be more accommodating.
We had a really intimate ceremony at 2:30pm with 50 guests and at 5pm a further 40 guests arrived for the first surprise for our guests, our Street Food Party!
The food and drink was delicious and it made for such a great atmosphere and got everyone in the mood for a good party!
At 8pm we had our final surprise for our guests, Jane led our guests down the cellar bar, which we had managed to keep a surprise from everyone, for our first dance.
The dance floor was packed and the cheeseboard and chips went down a treat later in the evening after all the dancing!
The whole process of planning the wedding was so easy and relaxed, and we both loved working alongside Jane who really brought our vision to life.
We made a point of going to the venue numerous times in the planning process, any excuse to spend time at the venue and enjoy a glass or two!
We couldn't recommend West Street more if we tried, and we cant thank Jane and the team enough!
We consider ourselves very lucky that is it also a venue we can continue to visit and reminisce about our day, we have already planned out next visit!
Poor customer service - rude owner
By anon, on 26 Apr 2017Date of Wedding - 25 Apr 2017
We contacted the venue about booking a wedding for next year and were invited to go for a meeting and look round.
The venue is lovely, light and spacious with spectacular views and a great layout for the whole day.
We were promised a quote which eventually arrived (after much chasing) but was very vague so I asked some questions to clarify details and correct things and received a response from Jane that was rude, unprofessional, patronising and implied she didn't feel we were good enough for them.
We were very upset as we had really loved the place, the food and wine might be great but the customer service and attention to detail was shocking.
By Angela Wilsher, on 07 Jan 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jan 2017
We held our intimate wedding at West Street Vineyard on 3 January 2017. It was an absolutely amazing day from start to finish. We initially chose to hold the ceremony outside in the beautifully decorated pagoda, but due to the changeable January weather the ceremony was moved inside, at the very last minute. The ceremony room inside was as beautifully decorated. Jane and her team were absolutely wonderful, meeting our every need and desire. The food, the wine, the location are exquisite, the venue was decorated to a very high standard, it was a day we will never forget, and we would not hesitate in recommending West Street Vineyard to any Bride and Groom.
