As you may recall we wanted our wedding to be a 3 day event with close family on the 1st day Monday 16/10, then 45 friends & family arriving, finally up to 65 on our wedding day Wednesday 18/10, leaving Thursday 19/10. To arrange this we considered 10 venues & then shortlisted 4 (St Audries Park, Huntsham Court Tiverton, Trevenna Farm St Neot Cornwall, & Bickleigh Castle Tiverton) for close scrutiny, review & costings.
From our early negotiations with Jade, we felt sure we were in good hands, & this was to be reconfirmed when we had Lynne Flowers appointed as our Planning manager… she is excellent ! Over the next 6 planning months we found the whole team from Jake, Jade, Lynne, Ed & Lee + chef, to be very accommodating, nothing was too much trouble. We felt their response was best summed up by the adage “the answer is yes, now what’s the question?” !
I hope we played our part in the planning, & maybe that’s where some others let themselves down… by & large in life, you get out what you put in !
So our 3 day wedding event was wonderful, just as we planned. The Accommodation was 1st class even coping with our needs of different guests arriving at different times on different days. The Catering was superb, drinks & bar service great. All the buildings were immaculately presented & our extras… candle package, table centre pieces, tea/coffee stations, & outdoor games etc were delivered just as requested.
Our flowers were by Jane of Eden flowers, & cake by Samantha cakes… both excellent & delivered by themselves in perfect condition… why would you risk someone else delivering them ?!
Our photographer was Tim Parke, & we now have the most wonderful photographs & albums, which combined with the super videos that our videographer Andy of Union Video delivered, gives us super reminders of just how good it all is at St Audries Park !
So thank you all again, & if you want us to speak to an undecided couple, or come & reference your wonderful venue, we would be very happy to do so.
