Lovely wedding venue
The venue is beautiful. It’s almost a combination of barn style and Manor House making it such a perfect spot for an Oxfordshire wedding. What’s more is that the river runs along the back of the venue!

Genuinely Perfect
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your colleagues for the amazing job everyone did on our wedding day! My guests were blown away not only by the beautiful venue but the food and how helpful the staff were! It was flawless from start to finish! The Master of Ceremony was so helpful and super friendly. He definitely made the day go very smoothly! I was fully prepared that there is no such thing as the perfect day and that there would be hiccups but as far as I’m aware there were none! It was genuinely the best day!
