Customer testimonial:

"No words can express how perfect this venue was for me and my husband. Our wedding was run by amazing staff who were so kind and calming. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and I recommend anyone to go and see it for yourself as the pictures really don't do it enough justice. The space is a great size, and we were lucky enough to have our ceremony outside in the beautiful grounds in the sun in October. And to make it even more perfect, we returned inside the venue to a cosy fire. It was the most romantic and perfect ambience all thanks to The Old Rectory.
