The venue have been very amenable with covid and enabled us to change our date with no extra cost. They offered us several options to be able to have the day we want (or close to)

If you’re looking for a wedding venue then you can get no better than The Old Hall, Ely - they were just the best! We had our wedding 3 weeks ago and the attention to detail, all the staff, especially Claire and Sophie on the day were just amazing. They catered to all our needs, everything ran like clockwork and our wedding day was just perfect!! Thank you so much!

Wow. What can I say? We had THE MOST AMAZING day at our wedding on the 15th August. The events team were so friendly and professional from the first meeting with Alex to the day itself and ensured that everything ran smoothly with a smile. Amy was a massive help in not only answering every question we had but also in putting us at ease. We loved the place the moment we viewed it and can't believe we were able to get married here. The rooms are beautiful and the bridal suite is just an exceptional one-of-a-kind space for that special night. We wouldn't change a thing, and can't thank the team enough. Sophie and Gareth Martin.

I cannot thank everyone who works at The Old Hall enough for what they did to make our wedding day so special. Even 2 years ago when first meeting the team they made you feel part of the family and were so friendly. All the emails and meetings up to the big day, everything went like clock work. I wouldn’t change a thing, Alex was incredible. Even when my feet were getting sore from my heels she offered to change my shoes for me without question. We were waited on hand and foot, all of our guests couldn’t speak highly enough of the food and the venue itself. Thank you again for everything Love Mr & Mrs Smith xx

I can not rave about this venue enough. We had our wedding here last weekend and it was perfect. The scenery and setting is out of this world especially if you are able to get married outside overlooking the lakes. The staff are friendly, helpful, caring and nothing ever seems like too much trouble. The rooms are pristine and the facilities can not be faulted. The food was spectacular with rich flavour and brilliant presentation. The food service was carried out with military precision and could not be faulted. Even our fussiest of guest were well Catered for and satisfied with the food. The whole day was managed amazingly and as the bride I did not have a single thing to worry about as the staff made sure everything was just spot on. I really could keep writing because I was extremely impressed with this venue. They certainly know what they’re doing when it comes to a wedding and I would 110% recommend them to anyone. Thank you to every single person at The Old Hall Ely who played a part in our big day.

The Best Venue & Staff for our November Wedding!
We live around the corner from this beautiful wedding venue and had often discussed potentially getting married there one day! The reality was everything and more we had ever imagined!

The staff were amazing throughout the day, all of them seemed to thoroughly enjoy every part and it felt like you were truly celebrating with friends not just staff! We had been told that Alex runs a tight ship, and thank god! Weddings are stressful but never once did we have to add worrying about timings or where to be or what to do in that!

My tiny complaint with the venue is the morning... You aren't allowed in the Bridal suite until 11am... for a 1pm wedding this was a worry for a few weeks prior, luckily my suppliers were regulars at the Old Hall and timed everything perfectly - but I do feel like as breakfast is 8:30am you should be allowed in this room for 10am to really allow yourself to relax and enjoy the room and getting ready without moving around from marquee to room.

Apart from that tiny moan, the wedding venue is gorgeous - the fires were the main reason I loved the idea of a winter wedding and being cosy whilst getting married - and everything in that respect was idyllic and exactly how I imagined. This is often photographed as the most amazing summer venue (and it is, I've been to a few summer weddings) but it is equally as gorgeous in the autumn/winter!

My last point is that we were also invited to a 'Taster Event' 6 months before the wedding. This was AMAZING! Such a lovely extra and lovely to imagine how this will be when you're all dressed up in a wedding dress surrounded by friends and family.
