Thank you for hosting the best day of my life. The minute we met Jade, who showed us around we said “take our money”. We didn’t have to look anywhere else. Liz was amazing on the day, I was so worried about little things but she had sorted everything down to a T. Amazing venue and fabulous staff. Just wish we could do it all again.
There is so much that we love about St Audries Park. The views, the rooms, the driveway, the food and drinks, the Great Hall and the Main Staircase. Such a beautiful venue and grounds with amazing memories that will be last a lifetime. Thank you for making such a beautiful day amazing there are no words to explain what an incredible day we had, a year on and everyone still talks about the wedding day!! Thank you.
We can honestly say we had one of the best days of our lives! From the first online enquiry to our big day, the staff were amazing, helpful, reassuring and informative, special mention and thank you to Janette and Aly. Not only is this a fabulous venue to have your wedding, but it feels like an event as you have the option to arrive the night before making it a 2 night stay, so all your closest friends and family are there to relax and share this special time with you. Nothing was too much for St Audries Park, everything we needed or requested we had. The package offer was great and very straightforward. All of our guests commented on how lovely and scenic the …
We absolutely loved our wedding day at St Audries Park, it was even more magical than we ever could have expected. The staff were exceptional, they did everything for us leading up to the wedding and on the day they made sure the whole day ran smoothly. We didn’t have to worry about anything. The venue is so unique and is one of the any venues that I love in every season, it was so hard to choose when to get married! It’s such a versatile venue as you have the night before package for close family and wedding party, the choice of the Church or Orangery to get married in and a huge beautiful stately house with its own disco room! If I were …
Oh my. Where do I start... What an amazing day! The venue was perfect and was so easy to decorate because it is already beautiful! Courtney our wedding planner made the big day stress free, she was just amazing and lovely. The packages they offer is great value for money for what you get! Service from all the staff was spot on! Food was lovely, shame there was so much, it for wasted ? everyone was full! Rooms were.. Wow.. They were great. We stayed in the Main House. Breakfast was lovely. Not one bad thing to say! Highly recommend
I think it goes without saying our wedding manager Aly made our wedding day flawless. I may even go as far as saying she might have made the storm go away and the sun come out for us!! She was much organised, so many guests have commented on how seamless the day was and how she was going round the tables making sure everyone had exactly what they ordered and asking if they needed anything. Not only that, dealing with all the suppliers coming in on the morning of our wedding and running around like a headless chicken so I didn’t have to think about a single thing other than getting myself ready! We were so blessed with an amazing venue, amazing photographer and weather!! …
Our lovely wedding planner, Aly Claydon-Mills, was so helpful. She really did help ever so much and went far beyond any expectation we had. Nothing was too much trouble. Aly ensured that the day ran to schedule so at no point did the wedding party have to think or worry about the time. She was close-by for any queries and made sure our guests were happy at all times. The service we received at St Audries Park felt very special from individually checking in the guests into their rooms to ensuring drinks were always topped up. All the staff were very attentive.
We had the most perfect day from start to finish. Liz was very attentive on our wedding day and always there when we needed her! All of the staff are so lovely and very professional. There was a lovely lady and gentleman in the bar who were exceptionally great but unfortunately cannot remember their names. Everything was just the way we wanted and if we could do it all over again we would definitely choose St Audries Park again. Thank you for everything!
Thank you all so much! You all made our day perfect from start to finish. Everyone, brides included, loved the venue and said such positive things about the staff. Thank you a million times! We hope to see you all again soon. Love Mrs & Mrs Bidgood
As soon as I got engaged I knew I wanted to get married at St Audries Park, there was no doubt about it. Jade was extremely helpful with sending me further details and helping me find the right date. I went to view the venue just over a week after getting engaged and I knew as soon as I got there that it was the only venue I wanted to view. Aly showed us around and discussed all the details with us and we ended up booking our wedding date there and then. We were assigned Courtney as our planning manager and she was absolutely amazing, we couldn’t have asked for someone more kind and helpful. Even on the day of the wedding she was …
We got married here on Saturday 23 June 2018, like many others we had the most perfect day! From the minute we arrived to view the venue in August 2017 we have been so well looked after and 100% feeling the love, Claire - we love you! She looked after us so very well even down to the minute we left the house on Sunday morning. The entire St Audries Team are the best! Everything they did, they did it to the highest standards Can’t wait to come back when there is a ball on, would love to see the house and the team all over again. Thank you so much everyone With love Laura and Paul xx
My husband and I got married at St Audries Park in September and had the most perfect wedding day! From the second we arrived we received such a warm welcome from everyone at the venue and were made to feel like royalty. The food was delicious, the staff were exceptional (particularly our wedding planner, Becci) and the setting was spectacular. It was like a wonderful bubble with our nearest and dearest...….and they are still talking about our special day 2 months later. It was everything we could have dreamed of and more! Also a special thank you to Aly & Sam who welcomed us on arrival and couldn't have done more for us (even though neither were our dedicated wedding planner). Exceptional staff.... Thank …
From the moment I walked into St. Audries I knew there was no other venue for us...it felt like a home away from home and offered us everything we had been looking for without compromise. Beautiful setting, amazing food, accommodation the night before and the night off the wedding....and it was just our friends and family. The staff, Aly in particular, couldn't have been more accommodating in helping us plan a wedding in the space of four months!! With so much included in our package it really made the organisation and day run smoothly. Our guests haven't stopped saying 'It was the best day EVER' and we wouldn't change a thing. Can't wait to go back to see our St. Audries family.
Claire, our Personal Wedding Manager was just amazing and she did everything to make sure that our day was just perfect! The Orangery took our breath away, it was beautiful. The cornfields at the back were the biggest surprise of the day too. Everyone watching the sunset there is a gorgeous memory and I never thought that my favourite photo from my wedding day would be in a cornfield!
We would highly recommend St Audries Park to anyone looking for the perfect wedding venue in the South West! The place is just stunning, the grounds, the church, the house and accommodation. From the moment we drove down the drive on our first viewing we knew it was the place we wanted to get married! We had the most magical wedding day, from start to finish, everything ran smoothly the food was out of this world, Aly & her team worked so hard to create the perfect day for u...s and our guests. We loved it so much we are returning for the Christmas Ball this year and we can’t wait!! Mr & Mrs Adams 22.12.18
5* Where to start! We got married on 23 08 18 it was amazing, we stayed the night before (21 of us) we woke up and moved to the bridal dressing room of which our make up artist Hannah Hoskin-Love and hair dresser Naomi Smith was preparing for our makeovers. We had the best wedding planner Claire who from preparations, meetings and on the day was amazing, professional, approachable and did everything she could to make our day perfect along with all staff at St Audries. This venue means a lot to us and we would love to come back with our family and take in the venue and all it has to offer as we could not absorb all it had to offer. We …
Living in London made St Audries difficult to visit so we actually booked before going to see it!! We just had a gut feeling and trusted it; and we were right too. When we first saw St Audries we were blown away by it all (as were our guests on the big day). It was above and beyond what we could have expected. For us, it was the history and the people. From the moment we met Lynne, our Personal Wedding Manager, we felt special, loved and like our wedding mattered. It was amazing. Lynne is quite possibly the most incredible human being there is out there. She went above and beyond, and I can not thank her enough. Our day would have been great without her, but my, …
My now wife and I got married at St Etheldreda's Church and had our reception at St Audries Park Wedding Venue. The whole estate and grounds are absolutely beautiful. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful venue so local to us. We knew as soon as we visited St Audries that it would be the one for us! It definitely has that WOW factor. From our first visit and up to the end of our wedding weekend everyone that helped prepare and worked on our wedding day were absolutely amazing. Nothing was ever too much trouble. Our Personal Wedding Manager Janette was lovely and made sure that we had nothing to worry about so that we could just enjoy ourselves. All of the …
We met Jade the Sales Manager and she completely blew us away! She was friendly, wanted to know about us – took the time to understand what we were looking for, even invited us for coffee! All our questions that we’d prepared were answered from our very first visit, we felt completely at ease & knew that we’d be well looked after. The moment we pulled into the driveway we were completely blown away! The grounds were absolutely stunning, & the Main House is just beautiful. We knew from the minute that we walked in that it was the perfect venue for us.
St Audries Park was just the perfect setting, everyone enjoyed themselves, there was plenty of space for everyone and everything that we wanted, the grounds outside made for beautiful pictures and the orangery was perfect for the ceremony.....
