Incredible day!
Liam and I would like to say a huge thank you to yourself, Georgia, Claire and all the team on the day for being absolutely incredible! The day ran completely smoothly and I didn’t need to worry about anything! The venue looked beautiful and the food was so delicious - we received quite a few comments from guests that this was the best food they had ever had at a wedding! The staff were all so helpful and went out of their way - one of the waitresses even helped me with my dress. We would without a doubt recommend Mulberry House to anyone as a wedding venue and can’t wait to return for dinner for our first wedding anniversary.

Following visiting Mulberry House for one of their open days we decided to book for our wedding reception on the 27th April 2019. We were not disappointed. From booking with Stephanie, planning with Heather and Clare who was there on the day everything was taken care of. When we saw the sample menu there was loads of choice and the menu tasting proved how great the food was. We included extras like the champagne sorbet as it was incredible and refreshing. On the day they made sure we ate and drank and gave us a few minutes to pause before everything continued, these moments on the day meant a lot to us. Mulberry House have a list of helpful recommended suppliers and through this we got in touch with Aurora Pearl DJ, Spencer Wood Magician, TJ designs as well as David and Sandra Islip who did our photography and Cak enbakes who did our amazing cake. The whole day couldn’t have gone better and I cannot thank Mulberry House enough for their part in this. If you are looking at booking a wedding or wedding reception I would highly recommend and make sure you make time to walk round the lovely gardens.

Professional and utterly amazing. They made sure our wedding day was everything we wished for. They set the bar very high and are an example of excellent hospitality. Food, service and venue are faultless. Thank you for everything Mulberry.

From the first time we visited mulberry and received such a warm welcome we knew it was th place for us. The venue is stunning inside and out a perfect setting all year round ( we checked before selecting our date) Once we made our booking we received a pack informing us of timelines and supplier lists etc this really helps get you started. Thought the first planning meeting isn’t until 4 months before the wedding, the mulberry staff are very helpful with any questions in the months before this date. At the planning meeting they work hard to ensure evertpything id perfect for you and as you get to know your planner you realise your wedding in in good hands. On the day of our wedding I was truly amazed by the care, attention to detail, organisation and welcome that all of the mulberry staff provide. Our wedding planner Heather was there on the day and you can fully put your trust in her to ensure everything goes to plan. Yes there are a few changes as things don’t always workout as they should but the mulberry team are seamless in the way they pull off the wedding of your dreams. I can’t praise them enough, I am a total control freak and it takes a lot to hand all of the careful planning over to others and I can honestly say I would trust them with it all again tomorrow. This amazing team have done us proud, the day was perfect, my husband and I couldn’t be happier. Bravo mulberry you are fantastic From everyone there on July 29th Xxx
