It is so beautiful here. We visited a few other venues in the area but Fennes were not only the best venue, but they had the most professional, welcoming and friendly staff. They made it very easy for us, when we ultimately had no idea what we were doing! We had no second thoughts on choosing them to book our wedding and we can't wait! Thank you and thanks Charlotte for making the whole process easy.

We got married on the 11th of May 2019 at a local church and had our reception at the Fennes. We had 155 guests and the fennes team were absolutely superb from start to finish. Food was excellent and to a very high standard. All the waiting and bar staff were faultless and very attentive. We hired all but one of the available rooms for some of our guests and everyone said how nice they were and the breakfast the next morning was lovely. We dealt with Victoria, Charlotte, Anika and Nicola and they really were great and bent over backwards to make our day exactly what we wanted. We had the Gin cart as a extra touch and this went down very, very well with our guests. We can’t recommend this venue enough. Many thanks to everyone involved. Jo and Chris.

I want to say a huge thank to our amazing wedding planner Nicola and to every single person that worked along side her at Fennes throughout our wedding. You all helped to create and maintain the most special day for myself and Garry! The day was more than perfect in every way, we couldn’t have wished for more.
Just wish we could do it all over again!
