Thank you for our amazing wedding!
Thank you for our amazing wedding at willington hall yesterday. From our first visit in 2016 we knew we had made the right decision. The venue looked amazing on the day (despite the wind and rain) and the staff were absolutely fantastic throughout. The guests had an amazing day and loved the venue, food and grounds.Sent on 25/08/2018
I have to say a special thanks to Michel (not sure if that's how you spell it) but he was absolutely incredible and a credit to the team. He was so attentive, hardworking and did everything to make our day run smoothly.
I would like to thank Natalie for helping me organise our perfect wedding and for always emailing me back with advice, correspondence and being so relaxed. I can't recommend willington hall enough.

June 2017 Wedding
We just wanted to say thank you very much for everything you did for our wedding this June. The venue was beautiful and the service was fantastic.Sent on 07/10/2017
Natalie helped us get everything organised in the months leading up to the wedding and helped us tailor things to us. The menu choices were brilliant (advice: don't eat breakfast before you go for the menu taster, you will want to eat it all).
Everything went very smoothly, especially considering we had guests wanting to change their menu options right up to the day of the wedding. I'm sure this can't have been easy to arrange but some how it was sorted.
On the day the master of ceremonies ensured there were no problems and made sure we were well looked after all day.
We could not recommend this venue more and thank you to everyone at Willington.
