Mullineux Wedding 28th July 2018
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Mullineux, on 06 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Jul 2018

We wanted to get married in the city which we live and to be perfectly honest there weren’t a huge amount of options to suit our numbers and budget. We had our ceremony at the Guildhall but with no outside space it wasn’t the option for us when it came to our reception. The Wessex Centre is completely private and the use of the Undercroft as an additional space should the weather turn made it perfect for us and our guests. The food was brilliant, they completely surpassed our expectations. The food tasting was great and a good opportunity to meet Rob who was going to be running things on the day. He made us feel at ease and nothing was too much trouble. In the run up to the wedding, Lindsey was great at promptly answering all my questions. We arrived the day before the wedding to add a few finishing touches to the room. The team had already set up our fairy lights, bunting and tables and everything looked great. On the day it was no trouble that we arrived a little earlier than planned. The staff were great at catering for everyone’s needs. They even kept the food warm of one of our guests with a small child who had to take the child off during the middle of the meal. The day ran really smoothly and despite the odd rain shower we were able to enjoy the inside and outside space at the Wessex Centre. Our guests all commented on what a beautiful setting it was and how lovely the food had been. We would thoroughly recommend booking your wedding at the Wessex Centre.

Thank You !

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for our amazing wedding this weekend. Everything went so smoothly and Zsolt, Rob and all your staff could not have been more helpful. The food was delicious too. We can’t thank you all enough and are still smiling from everything.

Review of Wedding events at the Cathedral, Winches
Venue Service

By Gabrielle OGrady, on 13 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 14 Oct 2017

Well, what a fab time we had and in no small part to the staff in the cathedral venue, especially bearing in mind, there was a change of catering company, and a change of staff, but Lindsey, and Rob made sure they had done all their homework to ensure that we had a wonderful, and memorable day. So much effort was put into it by the staff, even the night before with 6 of us sorting out the bunting for half an hour! On the day, they all made sure that the Wessex Centre looked fabulous. The cathedral grounds, and venue are, of course, beautiful, but it wouldn’t matter if the staff didn’t offer such dedicated service, but they surpassed themselves. We were both so happy, and pleased with the day. Everybody who came thoroughly enjoyed it, and there were compliments galore about everything. The venue, the food, everything. I would thoroughly recommend going to the cathedral events for your wedding. They will listen to you, advise, and make sure that you are happy with everything. It couldn’t have been better. Thank you so much to all!
