We got married here on Sat 14th September and had the most amazing day! Can’t thank the staff enough for all their help during the preparation and during the big day it’s self! Special thanks to Toyah and Molly, they couldn’t of been more helpful! They ensured everything went smoothly and as we wished. We fell in love with the parlour on our first visit and it proved to be perfect for our wedding day! Big thanks again to all the team that helped to make our day so special Andrew and Sarah Elliott x

My husband and I got married here on Friday 21st June, I literally can not recommend the venue highly enough. The grounds and facilities are amazing and the staff were fantastic, Molly, in particular, was outstanding and looked after us and all our guests to ensure that we had the best day. The food was excellent and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. If you are planning your wedding, get along to the Parlour - you will not be disappointed!

We got married here 4 weeks ago. It was the most amazing day and the staff were a massive part of that. Molly made sure our day ran perfectly and there was no request too big or small. The waiting staff and bar staff were great too. This place means the world to me and my husband. Couldn’t recommend it enough xxxx

We recently held our wedding here and from beginning to end it was truly amazing! The entire staff here cannot do enough for you, they are a credit to the Parlour and part of what makes it so special. Molly and Stuart we there on the day and everything ran like clockwork thanks to them! The food, the drinks and decor are just perfect and the overall cost for a wedding here is unbelievable! This will always be a special place to us, thank you everyone at the Parlour xx

We got married at The Parlour on 20/10/18 and it was honestly the most amazing day! Everything went absolutely perfect with not a thing going wrong and that’s honestly down to the staff. From booking the wedding, all of the meetings in between and the actual wedding itself, the staff have been invaluable. Mollie was a point of contact throughout the planning and was super helpful. Stewart held our final meeting and spent 2 hours going through every fine detail we requested to make sure everything was perfect. Stewart was also our MC on the day and done the most amazing job. Food was unreal, the atmosphere was perfect. Everyone commented on what an amazing, chilled and intimate venue it was and that’s the reason we chose it in the first place. Thank you so much for everything, Mr & Mrs Harris

The best day!
As soon as we saw The Parlour, we knew it was the venue we wanted to celebrate our wedding at. It was so pretty, it had such a lovely, laid back, vibe and we just loved the courtyard and the idea of using the different buildings for different parts of the day.

Molly, Stewart and all of the team were an absolute dream to work with, in both the lead-up and the day of the wedding. They were so accommodating of all of our ideas and couldn’t do enough for us! They always met us with a smile and everything ran smoothly. The day itself was beautiful, it was the first real day of spring so the courtyard was a perfect setting for our guests to be greeted with Pimms, cocktails, and canapes. After the wedding breakfast, everyone spilled back outside to enjoy the last few hours of the daylight before full party mode commenced and everyone got busy dancing in the Willow Room or sang their hearts out in The Parlour where we hosted the karaoke!

The food was absolutely delicious! We went for a menu tasting a few months earlier where Stewart discussed the food with us and paired the wine. It was difficult to pick as everything tasted amazing and the presentation was something else! The chefs really took on board all of the dietary requirements of our guests and went above and beyond to prepare something that everyone was happy with.

We were overwhelmed with the feedback from our friends and family about the venue and the food and how everyone felt very looked after. It couldn’t have gone better and we’ve got so many special memories. Thank you again to all of the staff for creating the most wonderful setting to our special day!
