What Our Happy Couples Say . . . .

 

All the Events Managers here at the Ashes love our jobs! We work with people in love every day, what’s not to love?  It’s always nice to hear that our efforts in helping to make your wedding day the special occasion you want it to be, have been appreciated.

Most of us are softies and there were a few moist eyes, as we read through these wonderful (un-edited) comments from couples who voted for us when we won the National Award for Best Wedding Venue 2014.


Perfect rural Farm setting. The stone barns were exactly what we were after.


The Ashes was a wonderful place to get married, the whole day felt incredibly well organised and the staff were always ready to help. The setting is so beautiful and serene. I loved being in the countryside and the fact that we had the whole place to ourselves made the day feel very special.


Excellent service and perfect balance of feeling relaxed but formal at the venue. We had a perfect day which was largely down to the choice of venue with the caterers providing food which all the guests complimented.


The staff made us feel like part of the family the grounds and the barns were beautiful! Everyone was so accommodating and polite before and during the day we couldn’t have asked for more and there is nothing we would change! The food was top quality and the young staff were a credit to the company


As soon as we saw the ashes, we knew is was The perfect venue. The staff are very friendly and professional and the passion they show for weddings is very clear . We had the dream wedding and all our guests were amazed at the beauty of the location and detail added to make the barns a perfect venue.


The staff and venue were outstanding. They helped make our day special and were willing to accommodate all our needs. Excellent !!


The Ashes made our wedding everything we wanted and more. From the moment we looked around, they were exceptionally helpful and went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect. A stunning venue – nothing else could compare!


We had an amazing wedding day, it couldn’t have gone any better.


If I was to describe our wedding in one word, it would be “perfect”. That’s down to the Ashes and the event managers. Their help throughout the planning process and the service they delivered on the day were absolutely wonderful. As a bride, I felt looked after and special (that’s how it should be!)


Fabulous stunning venue with true exclusive use. The staff were professional and were always at hand to give advice. Our day was tailor made to our requirements and we were at ease throughout the planning and the whole wedding day. The Ashes is spectacular and we will remember our day forever.


Absolute dream wedding made fantastic by a brilliant and organised team, truly special and characteristic venue and owners made us feel so welcome Organisation was really good and even though staff were always there to help never seemed in the the way, couldn’t do enough,


We had the most amazing day of our lives! Everything was perfect! The day we came to first look around we just knew we had to get married there, it blew us away! The staff were wonderful, we couldn’t have asked for anything more! A fab place that has given us memories to last a life time!


Customer service and flexibility was amazing. Flexibility key in choosing this venue.


I honestly only have great things to say about The Ashes, and that goes for every single aspect, from the quality of the venue to the amazing staff. It is a truly beautiful place, and nothing is too much trouble. You can tailor your wedding completely, to make it personal. It really is perfect.


The Ashes we’re fabulous from start to finish. Having been a wedding coordinator for a very popular and upmarket wedding venue I had high expectations for our wedding day and they more than exceeded them, they even managed to bring the sunshine! Everything went perfectly!


The perfect mix of formality & relaxed atmosphere A blank canvas so each wedding can be planned to reflect the personality of the couple-no chair covers & organza bows for a change! No hidden extra costs or corkage charge, very flexible Friendly, helpful staff & brilliant communication throughout


Excellent venue, food and service. It made for the most perfect day.


The venue is beautiful, staff are exceptionally helpful and the flexibility in how your day will run is wonderful. We weren’t able to have an informal hot buffet for our wedding breakfast, but understood that the logistics of that, given our numbers, meant it wouldn’t really work. A fabulous place!


Our wedding at the ashes was (guests words), exquisite, class, the most preffessional, beautiful ever. The attention to detail was second to none, the venue looked sensational in day light and after dark, the staff managed to achieve personal attention whilst floating though the shadows. AMAZIN


I cannot even begin to describe what a wonderful venue The Ashes is and the incredible service that we received from all involved. Our day was just spectacular and I will cherish the memories forever.


We had an absolutley fantastic day. Very relaxed. Staff were great. Just a shame there’s no accommodation.


We were warmly welcomed from the moment we visited to look at the venue. We were comfortable to ask questions or make requests; the staff are professional and dedicated. We truely had a day to remember and are so glad we chose The Ashes. It is especially magical at Christmas!


A truly magical venue, amazing very personable customer service, staff made us feel very special and understood how important the day was to us. On day staff were so efficient but inconspicuous so the atmosphere was lovely and relaxed. No other venue could come close, such an unforgettable experienc


Ben, Sarah and the team left us feeling that The Ashes would be the perfect venue from the moment we arrived to look around. They are welcoming, geniune and have a real passion to deliver the wedding that you want. We were relaxed through the whole process and had total trust in them to plan our day


Nothing was too much trouble for this venue. We had a really complicated system for out table plan and had different themes/wines for each table and they were really helpful every step of the way. Communication was always prompt, precise and clear and the prices etc were as they were quoted etc.


Ben, Sarah and the whole team were fantastic. They were supportive, kind, organised and friendly. My husband and I noted that on the day we barely knew they were there and everything ran perfectly with their support in the background.


Outstanding on all fronts – venue, planning, preferred suppliers etc. The team made planning a wedding from a distance easy and they were also very flexible with our requests to visit the venue on additional occasiions to aid our planing.


Couldn’t have been better! Expert and friendly staff. Superbly run on the day, personal event planner make the day run so smoothly! Excellent presentation of venue, beautiful setting, incredible food from the caterers, so many compliments from our guests on the venue and the food. No corkage is fab!


It was the perfect choice to host our wedding. Its exclusive use meant that we were the only people there and all the staff were dedicated to making our day special (which they did). The events team are on hand to answer any questions before/during/after the wedding and the grounds are spectacular!!


The Ashes provided what felt like a very tailored wedding with a variety of options. The two barns provided a very warm and welcoming environment which translated into an amazing atmosphere. The staff were very supportive an informative with preparations, an outstanding venu, strongly recommended.


We picked The Ashes because this venue has all that you want from a place where dreams are made and futures are started. It has great buildings, great position in the country, great facilities but not too impersonal. The staff helped make the day perfect and the whole package is here.


Staff were professional, accomodating, efficient and friendly, especially on the big day. They were there when you wanted them but seemed invisible the rest of the time. All our guests thought it was stunning, many commenting on the lovely rural setting, & relaxed style. Facilities were excellent.


The Ashes wedding venue helped us to achieve our perfect day. The whole team ensured all our dreams and expectations became a reality. The actual venue itself provides a diverse array of backdrops for stunning photos. It provides a secluded, exslusive and stunning venue for a wedding.


I could not recommend The Ashes more highly. Beautiful venue, fabulous staff who could not do more for you. They obviously see weddings all the time but they made us feel that they were as excited about our big day as we were and that it mattered to them that our day went perfectly.


The ashes made our wedding day fantastic, everybody commented on how beautiful the venue was and they all said it will be a day they will always remember.


The choice available for food and ceremony options was far bigger than any other venue we visited, we had lots of communication about what was needed and what we could do on our day when we needed advice. Our guests all loved the look and feel of the venue and we couldn’t have asked for more.


The staff were extremely helpful & replied to emails very quickly with useful information that made sure we were prepared for our big day. We had a few visits to the venue after we had made the booking which really helped and they provided an excellent tasting day for both us & our parents to enjoy.


The Ashes was a dream venue for us because it was beautiful and adaptable. The old dairy was a lovely escape and the grounds. In every corner there is the chance for a beautiful photograph and the staff went above and beyond setting up and moving our decorations to our evening barn. Simply perfect.


Amazing venue! Loved it, excellent customer service! The caters were fab and the food was lovely! Would highly recommend this venue, my dream wedding!


We absolutely loved the Ashes it was everything we were looking for and so great that is was all in one place! The staff and surroundings were so lovely! I couldn’t have wished for more and it was so amazing to be in the countryside the views are amazing!!!


The ashes, the staff, the whole event was perfect, we cannot recommend highly enough


Gorgeous venue, excellent communication re planning, amazing staff!


We can’t thank The Ashes enough for helping our day to be as memorable as it was. Our events manager (Vikki) was so helpful and made our day run so smoothly. An amazing venue that has earnt it’s reputation and is fully deserved of this award.


This was our dream venue. Completely natural, laid back and flexible. We hadn’t even seen the inside when we decided to book it, but upon seeing the inside we then knew the theme and everything else. Every guest loved it and we honestly couldn’t have chosen better.


We first saw the ashes online and it looked Stunning. The ashes was the final place we viewed and it made all the rest seem like a waste of time. We decided there and then it was the place for us. The staff which was mainly events manager vicky were amazing throughout helping as much as they could..


The Ashes is everything we looked for in a venue and delivered on our special day, the staff are extremely organised and take the pressure off you with regard to the planning before and during the day, The communication, advise, guidance and service is second to non


From the moment we booked to the big day the ashes were fab. They were on hand to help but let you take control on your day! Our guests loved it and so did we.


Great venue, great staff. Everything was so easy!


From start to finish I was made to feel totally relaxed and had no worries that the day would run extremely smoothly. Everyone at the ashes is very professional and nothing is too much trouble. I wish the ashes the best of luck.


Absolutely wonderful. I can’t highly recommend them enough. Everything was just perfect. Our wedding planner on the day was amazing, it just ran so smoothly. Tasting days were really useful, and all the planning and meetings were great to help me feel at ease. Wonderful venue.


The Ashes is the most perfect wedding venue and we still feel so lucky to have gotten married there. The venue itself is lovely but the real beauty comes from the owners and staff who are so flexible and unbelievably helpful, even when faced with our odd ideas! We can’t thank them all enough.


It was just the best day ever! We had an excellent service from the day we went to view the barn for the first time, no pushy sales pitch at all, just genuine enthusiasm for the place, up to the day itself, nothing was too much trouble for them & the planner Paula was great too, a perfect venue


Very friendly and professional, made us feel special throughout the entire process. The location is stunning as are all the facilities. Really can not fault in any way. 🙂

The ashes is an amazing wedding venue. Its rural location and exclusive use make the venue a special place to get married. The barns make the perfect setting for your ceremony and reception. The staff are 1st class and can’t do enough to make your day special.


Made welcome by the relaxed and professional attitude presented by The Ashes Events Managers and owners – plenty of time to look around and to ask questions either onsite during viewing, or afterwards through email. It only took one visit to fall for the place. Shame no accommodation available.


The Ashes and their team looked after us every step of the way!! Our wedding was perfect we wouldn’t have changed a thing xx


We were very impressed with this venue. Fell in love when we went to view and knew nowhere else would do. The staff were wonderful from start to finish, nothing too much trouble. They dressed the venue better than I could have imagined everything was just perfect I cried when I walked in!


The Ashes venue is classically understated, every aspect of the venue, the buildings, decor and furniture is of the highest quality. The ambience of the two barns are inspiring and the facilities are excellent. The added touch of the “old dairy” ensures that the bride can prepare herself for the big


We fell in love with the venue as soon as we saw it, and just walking round the place you can tell it is a family run business where they take things personally and the team are a close knit unit. On the day itself, our guests were blown away by the beautiful barns and the amazing food. Perfection!


The venue and staff were incredible.


The venue is beautiful and the staff are amazing they help and guide you through every step of the planning process. During the day itself you can enjoy your special day knowing that everything has been taken care of the Ashes team.


Perfect location and service, they managed the whole day very well and co-ordinated the other suppliers such as catering and DJ. Made photography easy in terms of options for the different shots both as a couple and as a group. Set out the venue very well for a small 32 guest ceremony and meal.


So pleased we chose this venue for our wedding. The staff were always there when you needed a chat or for advice. Very professional and friendly. Everything ran smoothly. Perfect.


Amazing venue, lovely staff and very accommodating. Service on the day was seamless.


I am a regional manager for a service company so put good service in high regard. I thought the Ashes were excellent – venue setup was perfect for our size wedding, service provded form the team was superb and our guest would say the same. Our overall day was perfect for us! I marked them down one


Gorgeous venue, atmosphere and setting even at the end of November, with fog and frezzing temperatures! They make planning a wedding so easy and fun. The barns are gorgoues and we simply loved the Christmas Trees and twinkling lights. Our day was amazing and everyone had such a fabulous time.


The venue itself was beautiful, rustic and relaxed which was just what we wanted. The staff were brilliant at helping us to plan our day and it was great that there is no hidden extra charges. On the day the staff were excellent and the food was amazing. A truly magical place!


Beautiful, unique venue Lovingly restored and pristinely maintained. All details considered by management team, from the wooden chairs to the sunken car park. Attentive staff who make the day run perfectly. Can’t recommend this venue highly enough. And they don’t charge corkage!


Absolutely amazing!!


The venue is stunning, the barns have been immaculately renovated. I loved the flexibility of the package with no corkage for bringing own booze in the day. My wedding coordinator Vicki was so helpful and professional – she was invaluable on the day.


The Ashes is a stunning venue and was our first and only choice for our wedding, so much so we waiting an extra year for availability in the summer. Very helpful and professional staff, the website and information available for bride and groom and guests was very comprehensive.


An incredible experience from first contact, constant communication, meal tasting and we couldn’t have asked for a better wedding day. It ran like clockwork thanks to all the staff who were very friendly and professional. The venue itself is simply stunning =perfect!


A wonderful venue in an idyllic setting. Our friends and family were amazed at how lovely it was. The service was simply first class, it was everything we wanted and more.


The Ashes, a stunning venue, was everything a venue should be and more. The professionalism of all the staff and their commitment to making our day as special and perfect as it could possibly be was exceptional and we feel very lucky to have found such an amazing venue to hold our wedding.


Excellent all round


Fantastic…


Absolutely perfect venue. Compared to other venues we saw, it completely stood apart – it was such a relaxed atmosphere and the staff showed so much interest in our big day. The day ran so smoothly – Jayne was an excellent coordinator.


Tom & I and my future in laws Su & Dave first met Ben & Sarah just after Tom proposed to me April 2012. We wanted to find the perfect wedding venue. We had looked at one more but The Ashes stole my heart The Ashes staff are amazing they guide you every step of the way to achieve a dream wedding day


I genuinely cannot fault the ashes!!! The place is beautiful and the staff and owners are amazing!!! You know you are special when planning and having your wedding at the ashes and there is not a single place that could compare for me.


Xxx


We really enjoyed our wedding day which will remain in our memory and that of our families for a long time. Being a family with a lot of small children I was worried that the venue would not be able to cater for our needs but I was wrong. The suppliers section on the website is a god send.
