Testimonials

  • Couldn't recommend the venue and staff enough. We fell in love with the setting as soon as we visited and from the moment we met with Nicole and Steve they offered so much support and reassurance.
    We were invited to discuss our ideas and visit the site when ever necessary. Nicole's experience meant that every fine detail was thought of and they all went above and beyond to make sure it was right for us.

    Our wedding was 2 weeks ago today and all our guests are still talking about how magical and different the whole day was. If you're looking for a venue who works for you, makes you feel important and gives your guests something to remember this is it! Great value and I'm certain hard to beat! Noting else like it!

    Laura Rush Bride
  • The staff and venue exceeded all of our expectations (which were high already!) and the expectations of our family and friends. We had the most perfect wedding from start to finish and Nicole, Steve and the rest of the gang worked tirelessly to make sure everything went to plan.

    The communication since we booked the venue was great and it made planning really fun and exciting.
    In the days before, they made us feel very relaxed and they transformed the venue in keeping with our style.

    On the day all of our guests said what a fantastic, refreshing venue it was and how they had never been to a wedding like it. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day and a more perfect team to help us plan. We will have incredible memories for life.

    Vicky Shingles Bride
  • When our first wedding venue fell through I reassured myself there was a reason and something better was on its way. Well, who knew that Cheshire Woodland Weddings would be the blessing waiting for us.

    From start to finish Nicole and Steve were on hand for anything we needed at any time day or night and the staff onsite were faultless, happy to help in any way they could. They let us believe we could have a very special day and offer our guest a great day. Well, all we can say is they over delivered!!

    There are no words that could accurately describe just how amazing our day turned out to be, our guests took great pleasure in describing the event as “THE BEST WEDDING EVER” and we can’t agree more. The same sentiment was echoed by the musicians, photographers, catering staff and videographers. It’s taken a little while to let the reality sink in that it was all real because it honestly felt like something straight out of a movie, a perfect day and an epic start to married life for which we will be eternally grateful. If you want a wedding day beyond your wildest dreams this is the place you are guaranteed to get it.

    Stephanie James Bride
  • My husband and I were looking for a wedding venue that was unique, magical and bespoke. Cheshire Woodland Weddings exceeded our expectations and delivered everything we could have asked for and more.

    We had a woodland wedding ceremony followed by an evening reception in the ‘barn.’ It was a day our guests and we will NEVER forget! Even on a rainy day in August, the venue did not disappoint and the day proceeded without a hitch.

    The communication from Cheshire Woodland Weddings was first class from start to finish. The wedding coordinator met with us on a regular basis to assist us with our wishes and discuss the packages they offered. We truly felt that we were the most important people in the world as they helped plan our special day.
