We married at Whinstone on 2nd September 2018 and could not have asked for a more perfect day!! Dawn and the team did an amazing job of setting up the room just how we'd imagined and kept the day on time and to schedule. Since the wedding, everyone has commented on how fabulous the venue was and especially how great the food was. Honestly could not have hoped for a better day. Thanks team Whinstone!! xxx

By Danielle Oliver & Helen Oliver, on 25 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2018

My wife and I had our summer wedding here on July 30th of this year & it couldn't have been a more perfect day. Dawn, Andrea & all the team worked super hard to ensure our day was everything that we dreamed of, which included setting up both inside and outside ceremony spaces as it threatened to rain and coordinating our guests outside at the very last second as they knew how much I wanted the outdoor ceremony. As a same sex couple that had experienced difficulties in the past with discrimination it was important for us to feel comfortable and everyone at Whinstone view treated us with with equality and respect and this did not go unnoticed. Wrays barn looks simply beautiful and the staff could not have worked harder to take care of us and our guests. The wedding breakfast was amazing and our guests were blown away by the quality and quantity of food, with many of them commenting that the food was the best that they'd had at any wedding they'd ever attended. Our wedding was truly the best day of our lives and we could not have picked a better venue or a better team to take care of us on our day. Thank you so much everyone!

A rustic chic personalised wedding

By Kim and Neal Harper, on 24 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2018

We were planning our summer wedding for 2 years and Andrea and her team are absolute experts. All of the finer details ran like clockwork and there was no problem that the team at Whinstone View couldn't swiftly iron out. They were always on hand throughout the planning, the day before and on the day to make sure our day was absolutely perfect. THE FOOD WAS DIVINE. The barn is gorgeous, even with the most minimal decor it still is completely stunning. The grounds are perfect for your wedding party as you have exclusive use of the whole place. Everything was just amazing. We have lots of fond memories which we will hold onto and continue to visit the restaurant, lodges and spa as a married couple. A huge thank you once again to Andrea, Dawn, Katie and all the staff who went above and beyond to make our wedding day perfect. All of your hard work and the time and effort you went to didn't go unnoticed and we are very grateful to you for making our day amazing and personal to us xx

Dear Kim & Neal, Thank you so much for your fabulous review, it makes all the hard work and effort very worthwhile, Its great that you mentioned the food as our chef's work so hard between the scenes to produce such divine food :) It makes me feel extremely proud that we have helped to create such happy fond memories on your special day. It was a lovely day and the brass band were just brilliant ! Next time you visit pop into my office to say hi :) Many thanks and hope to see you in the near future Andrea x

We got married here on 30th June and it was the most amazing day ever. We couldn’t have wished for anything more perfect day. The venue is absolutely stunning, the food was gorgeous and the staff couldn’t do enough for us. We really couldn’t recommend this venue enough, a big thank you to all the staff for helping make our special day so perfect

WOW is all we can say!!! Going right back to that first initial meeting with Andrea and setting the date to the actual big day was just the best experience ever and a joy from start to finish. We were guided through the planning with honesty and genuine help, also helping us being cost effective which was brilliant and I’m pretty sure that being a factor for every bride and groom to be. All staff truly wanted to help make our day perfect and it sure was. Everything from setting up the most magical room to the small personal touches, we couldn’t have asked for better!! And the food is to die for too!! We didn’t want our day to end and looking back through our photo memories, we often say we picked the best venue. All our guests complimented us on our day, with ‘the best wedding we have been too’ being the most common comments. Thanks to all the staff especially, Andrea and Dawn, for helping us have the best day ever ????

Simply amazing

Our wedding was May 31st this year and what a fantastic day it was. The staff were amazing throughout the day and night. The wedding organiser and her staff made our day unbelievable with their service and organising making everything run smoothly. Wrays Barn is a lovely venue, with all the outdoor spaces for the kids to run around and the large decking area. Thank you for everything!!

Our Perfect Day in May!
Venue Service

By Nichola Chapman, on 29 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 30 May 2018

Whinstone View is quite simply the most perfect wedding venue. The whole grounds are completely immaculate and the attention to detail outstanding. The barn has a beautiful, twinkly, magical atmosphere where everyone can feel at ease. Andrea, Dawn and the staff at the lodges were amazing and so helpful. The venue is stunning no matter what the weather - our foggy day photos were beautiful! We were able to create our own unique day at Whinstone View which is something that we were unable to find at any other venue. Thank you so much xxx

The most perfect day
Venue Service

By Claire & Dan, on 22 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 07 May 2018

We couldn't recommend Whinstone View enough. We had the most perfect Wedding day earlier on in May this year. Dawn especially made our day run so smoothly, she worked solidly from 9am - midnight. How she did it I don't know! But she had a smile on the face the whole time! My only negative is that we can't do it all over again. Not only do we want to do our big day all over again, but our guests feel exactly the same! It was perfect.

Andrea , Wedding Co-coordinator at Whinstone View responded to this review on 02/11/2018 09:56:25

Thank you for taking the time to review Whinstone View, I have passed your comments onto to Dawn, I am so pleased you had the perfect wedding day and hope to see you next time your here. Andrea x

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
