By Jennifer and Naveed Amanat, on 31 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Mar 2018

The only word to describe our Wedding Day at Whinstone View is “perfect”. We got married 17th March 2018 (St Patricks Day!) and it was just a truly magical day. It even snowed which made it even more like a fairy-tale wedding! The grounds were lightly covered with a dusting of snow which made the barn look even more glowing and cosy! And from the photos I have seen so far, the ones of us outside the barn in the snow look incredible. We even had a fish and chip van outside and the staff had put heaters outside for guests so that they didn’t freeze in the snow on their way to the van! Everybody loved the fish and chips and commented on what a good idea it was – and I would recommend this for a wedding at any time of the year! Dawn and Andrea were truly brilliant, from the day we first booked the venue to the day itself the whole planning process went smoothly and wasn’t stressful at all. We really felt as though we were in good hands from day 1. Dawn was so lovely and made sure everything ran like clockwork on the day - Naveed and I didn’t have to think about a thing other than each other and having the wonderful, happy day we had dreamed of. Thank you to all of the staff at Whinstone View for ensuring our day was perfect! Jenny and Nav x

Amazing wedding venue

By Sarah Bradburn, on 01 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2017

We got married here on 6th October 2017 and it was the most amazing day we could have wished for and more. Dawn was absolutely amazing on the day making sure everything ran smoothly and kept us both calm and at ease and even had a cheeky dance with us. The food was gorgeous we had a chicken dinner and then the dessert table which was worth paying extra for and then a huge BBQ on the evening. All staff were really friendly and the drinks were all reasonably priced. All of our guests commented on what a beautiful wedding venue it was and I couldn’t agree more. I just wish i could do it all over again.

By Haleema Richardson, on 01 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 31 Aug 2017

We had our wedding reception at Whinstone View on 31st August. We actually booked Whinstone View for our venue 18 months prior, it was our second venue we viewed and knew straight away we didn't need to look any further! Andrea and Dawn in particular were a big part in our wedding preparations, they made sure everything ran perfectly, both before the wedding and on the day and they couldn't have done more for us. Food was amazing and the bar staff, we couldn't have asked for more! A lot of our guests said it was the most relaxed wedding they had been to and this is exactly what we wanted from our day. Thank you so much! Can't wait to come back! love from The Richardson's xxx

By Rebecca Beasley, on 31 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Aug 2017

I don't know where to start. 21st August 2017 was the best day of our lives. We had a vision of what our wedding day would be like but we could never have dreamed that that vision would become a reality and that was all thanks to Andrea for giving us the flexibility to create OUR day and to Dawn and the team for delivering our vision on the day...and a whole lot more. We can't thank you all enough. Roll on the next opportunity for a party. We look forward to celebrating our anniversary here for years to come!

Andrea Cook, Wedding Planner at Whinstone View responded to this review on 03/04/2018 11:58:21

By Hayley and James Gordon, on 26 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Aug 2017

Being arty, months.....even years of handmade personal preparation went into my wedding. I had a very specific way of how I wanted it to look, it HAD to be perfect! Wrays barn is a beautiful venue, simple yet ooozing with character. The staff were amazing, my meetings with Andrea ran like clockwork, initially I was nervous asking ‘can we just....’ or ‘do you think I could put...’ she never flinched, however random my requests (whether it was hanging palette frames from the beautiful willow tree, planting a treasure hunts all around the grounds or removing their own artwork off the walls for me to hang my own!) she just happily agreed and made it happen. The day itself was phenomenal, couldn’t fault anything, staff were kind, genuine and just happy to help-the sun shining just topped the whole day off, it’s a beautiful venue, idilic setting, with staff that truly go out of their way to make it perfect.

By Sophie Jackson, on 01 Mar 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jul 2017

Can't thank Andrea and the team enough for all of their help in the organisation of our wedding. Andrea and her team ensured every thing was taken care of from start to finish and made sure that everything ran as smoothly as possible on the day. We didn't have to think about a single thing. The food was delicious, the venue was stunning and the band (Sunshine Dayz) were phenomenal. Everyone commented on how fantastic all of these things were. Thank you all so, so much. We couldn't have asked for more from everyone involved. The Jacksons
