I can't tell you what an incredible day we had! It was honestly so perfect, even the weather showed up and we had the most beautiful spring day, blue skies and sunshine. We are so impressed with Lillibrooke and Heritage, the staff were amazing, Gemma was there for every moment even the most vulnerable just as I was about to walk down the aisle she was grabbing tissues for us,  and Mel was incredible, she was on top of every moment of our schedule and even helped me change my shoes before we went into the Great Barn. The accommodation was amazing as well, and it really was such a stunning day and one we will remember forever. The guests loved the food and every moment of the day and we really couldn't be happier.

We had the most magical day ever and cannot thank you and the team enough. Mel and Vincent were fantastic and made the day run so smoothly. They went above and beyond. We had so many people approach us to say in particular how fantastic Vincent was. He was such a character and he made everyone feel so at ease and welcome. He also made us all laugh a lot.

I just wanted to drop you a quick message to say we are beyond delighted with how our wedding went on Friday - from start to finish it was perfect and nothing was too much trouble for any of the staff. We are still on cloud 9! I wanted to especially call out Vincent (and would really appreciate you passing on our sincere thanks). He was absolutely faultless and bridesmaids, groomsmen & other guests commented multiple times on how attentive, efficient and compassionate he was - he really was absolutely wonderful and ensured the day went without a hitch. If there’s anywhere we can leave a review, please do let us know. Once again, thank you from the bottom of our hearts for playing such a huge part in helping to make our wedding day the best day of our lives!

I just had to write and say a huge thank for all your help and assistance in making Daisy and Robs wedding day the most perfect day ever. Vincent was absolutely incredible and nothing at all was ever too much trouble. We were adding things here and there so how he managed to keep to any sort of timings I will never know! The food was absolutely delicious and loved by every single guest and the venue was just wonderful. Thank you so much once again and please pass on our thanks to all the incredible people working there on Saturday making the day so special for us

We just wanted to reiterate my mum’s massive thank you to you and the Lillibrooke team for the most special day of our lives. How on earth Vincent pulled off all those delays and timings (with surprises that Rob and I - never mind the rest of the guest list - knew nothing about !!) was just outstanding! What a guy! What a team! 💪 Thank you ever so much again it was truly a day we’ll remember for the rest of our lives.

We would like to express our appreciation of your warm hospitality on the recent occasion of the Wedding of our elder Granddaughter. The surroundings in the grounds and countryside are most attractive, and most interesting historically. The flower arrangements and gardens were really beautiful, and provided a very lovely background to our happy celebrations. The catering was excellent with delicious meals, very well organised with speeches alternating with the courses, and a very relaxed atmosphere. The dancing later was good fun to engage in and to watch. The Manor is very charming in itself and beautifully maintained, and it was a very pleasant place to spend the night with breakfast after the Wedding. Our family and guests certainly enjoyed our time at Lillibrooke Manor, and we would be happy to recommend it to interested friends.

When we first got engaged, I wasn’t sure what type or style of wedding I wanted. When we first saw Lillibrooke Manor my vision came to life immediately and we both felt it was the perfect venue. We had a few requirements of our venue when looking - the option of accommodation on site, a place for me and my bridesmaids to get ready and catering suppliers. Lillibrooke ticked all of these for us. A few weeks before the wedding the Tack Barn became available to use and it really was the most gorgeous getting ready space with everything you could possibly need - it made the morning stress free and so comfortable. The staff at Lillibrooke are so fantastic and attentive. Our operations manager Rachael always answered my emails and many, many questions quickly and easily. On the day, our event manager Sam was also fantastic and did everything before I even had a chance to ask. So many of our bridal party and guests praised her. The food was also sensational. Food was something I was nervous about as its often what guests complain about - they didn’t need to at our wedding. In fact, we were inundated with compliments - including my father in law who said it was the best meal he’s ever had! I really can’t recommend Lillibrooke anymore - it was everything we wanted and so much more!

I don’t have the words to express how grateful I am to you and the entire Lillibrooke Team for making our wedding day everything I could’ve wished for and more. Jemma and Helen were absolutely incredible - they set up both indoor and outdoor settings for us and reassured us that we would have the day we wanted whether the weather served up rain, hail or shine! Even though we had some rain and we’re running behind time-wise, the day ran smoothly, the food was hot and each and every moment felt so special. I honestly couldn’t have wished for a better venue to host our wedding. Michael and I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the questions you answered and advice you gave us. The food, drinks and bar all worked to perfection. The majority of our guests reached out following the day to tell us it was the most incredible wedding (venue/ceremony/food/service etc) they had ever attended and I want your team to know that everything they do really makes all the difference.
Felicity & Michael

Honestly, we can’t thank you & Vincent enough for all the help you’ve provided in making our wedding the best day. There is nothing we would change about the day, everything was absolutely perfect and so many of our guests have commented on how beautiful the venue was and how great the food was!

What a wonderful day we all had at Lillibrooke. Thank you so much. Every single detail had been attended to perfectly and the bridal party and guests were absolutely delighted with everything. From first walking into the beautiful Tack Room - which elicited cries of delight from the bridesmaids - to entering the charming courtyard for the fantastic (and dry!!!) ceremony, to the immaculately served drinks reception and the most excellent food and party afterwards it was a simply faultless day. The food elicited so many compliments from our guests so please pass on our thanks. For us though, the outstanding feature of the day was the incredible Vincent! He is such a phenomenal asset to a day like that and it was reassuring and a pleasure to work with him. Thank you also for your recommended suppliers. The fantastic EverAfter, lighting team and the Distractions were all stunning. I am only sad that I cannot, yet, think of another event to host at Lillibrooke Manor. I'm working on it....

I just wanted to say thank you for making my party a spectacular success. Everything was perfect, the food was amazing, the staff were wonderful and our stay at the Manor House was totally fabulous. Everybody was stunned at how beautiful the house is and what a perfect venue Lillibrooke Manor is. I would thoroughly recommend it.

Thank you for helping us have the time of our lives. Lillibrooke Manor was the perfect setting for our wedding reception - and the start of our marriage. But more so than Lillibrooke’s beauty, it's the team who made the day what it was - from the event staff who navigated quite a complicated schedule with ease, to Vincent who made my guests feel well cared for and special, and Jo - who coordinated it all behind the scenes. We are incredibly grateful to everyone at Lillibrooke, and would recommend it to anyone after a beautiful barn-vibe wedding with enough space and versatility to host a Ceilidh with room to spare. 10/10.

We attended the Strachan wedding on Saturday and just wanted to thank you for the whole experience. Your venue is absolutely stunning and the day was perfect, everything from our point of arrival onwards , was spot on. All the food served not only tasted great but looked beautiful too, one of our party had gluten free requirements and she was so impressed with how well she was looked after. Most of all I wanted to commend your staff, they were excellent throughout – all of your waiting staff were incredibly polite , friendly and helpful and everyone I spoke to couldn’t do enough to help. They all really made the day complete. Also a special mention to the bar staff, who worked their socks off trying to accommodate a very thirsty crowd and did so with humour and patience ! Thank you again , and I hope I’m lucky enough to get an invite to another wedding at your venue in future!

Ricky and I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and the team at Lillibrooke. It really was the perfect day, all made possible by the care and attention of the staff there. The food was INCREDIBLE, we had so many compliments on the main, so delicious! And the Manor House, tack barn, grounds, everything - was just kept beautifully. It blew us and our guests away. An extra special thank you to Vincent and Gemma for taking such good care of us, it allowed Ricky and I to really be present with our guests and experience all the wedding day joy. Once again, thank you all for what’s been the greatest most memorable day of our lives.

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything Jo did for us for our Wedding, she was so accommodating to everything we wanted and the whole process was stress free and went so smoothly. The day was absolutely amazing and we would not have changed a thing! The house was perfect and we had everything we needed even the weather was perfect 😁 Could you also please pass our thanks on to Vincent, he was absolutely amazing on the day, was there for everything we needed and was so helpful with directing everyone especially the kids! I had so many people coming up to me saying how great he was and how amazing he is at his job so please let him know from us that it was a pleasure having him there making sure everything ran smoothly. I am so sad it is over and wish we could do it all over again and we are so glad we decided (last minute) to get married at Lillibrooke.

The main reason to choose Lillibrooke Manor was the exclusive use of a venue but it has so much more going for it as per the attendees; a beautiful place, excellent staff and “good food and drink” – thank you all so much. I must mention Nicole, Mel and Gemma who were really very helpful and always had a smile for us no matter what we asked for! Thank you, too, as you have been helpful throughout and surprisingly patient with me!

I just wanted to personally thank everyone one for everything yesterday at Peter and Emily’s wedding. Vincent - you went above and beyond to ensure all was attended to in every way. Thank you. Paul and I were lucky enough to be able to stay in the Manor House and it was exquisite. Finished, furnished, cleaned and catered to the highest standard. Your team both in front of and behind the scenes are excellent. Thank you very much. Great memories!

We had so many wonderful compliments on how wonderful the day was and that was definitely due to the fact we chose Lillibrooke. Not to mention the food, oh my goodness it was wonderful. I checked in with the veggies and vegans too and they were so happy and everyone else is still talking about the pork! Safe to say, Chris, Rosie and I had the best day, with the best people, eating the best food in the best venue. The Manor House was also such an asset, it made things so much easier for us to have space onsite to get ready, have throughout the day and go to at the end of the night. We truly had the best day!

We just wanted to send a thank you to Fiona and the whole team at Lillibrooke for making our wedding day so amazing and so special! We knew early on when looking at venues that Lillibrooke was our front-runner and favourite and it's such a nice feeling when everything comes together in the end to not only live up to your expectations, but exceed them! We have had such great feedback from all of our guests on how stunning the venue was, how incredible the food was (we've had several people ask for the recipe for the soup!) and what an amazing day it was. A special thank you to Fiona for all of your help in the build-up, Annabel for helping to manage things so effectively on the day and of course, to all of the incredible staff who treated us and our guests so well on the day.

From the initial contact with you, through the different stages of planning, to the party itself, all went smoothly and with courtesy and efficiency. The catering was very good and generous and the service friendly and professional. The site is sensational, especially with the ideal weather of course and everyone commented on the lovely surroundings. Sam presided over the event with the right mixture of calm and efficiency, showing her long experience. As you said, she knew what she was doing! Please pass on our great thanks to everyone.

We had a fantastic day! It was everything we hoped it would be and better. The venue was stunning and all of the coordination on the day was great. Special thanks to Nicole and Mel for all their help with the set up and running of the day - we didn’t have to worry about a thing and could truly enjoy ourselves and every part of the day. Nicole kept everything running smoothly and we are very appreciative to them both. All the staff at Lillibrooke were great. Our guests have said the food was outstanding. Many saying the best wedding food they’ve had - from the canapés to main meal and to pizza - it was all excellent.

He is a great asset to your company, as are you.

I wanted to drop you an email to thank everyone at Lillibrooke Manor for such an incredible day. Our wedding could not have been any better, and exceeded all expectations we had. Rachael Dexter was fantastic from start to finish with all the planning. My endless questions were answered almost immediately every time, and nothing was too much trouble! The day ran exactly as we had planned, with no hiccups along the way! Sam, our event manager on the day was amazing! Again, nothing too much trouble. She kept us informed and communicated so well throughout the day, and really went above and beyond to ensure the day ran smoothly, and that our guests had the best time possible. The food was incredible. Far too much of it, but so so tasty!! Everyone came away saying that most wedding food is rubbish, and there’s not enough of it.. quite the opposite experience for us!! Thank you to every single person that played a part in our day. I know there are so many individuals that made it happen. I would not hesitate to recommend Lillibrooke Manor. Stunning venue and amazing staff.

My husband Dan and I had the best wedding day at Lillibrooke! We were a COVID couple who had been let down by our previous venue so naturally we were nervous when it came to trying to find a new one. However, we could not have been more delighted with Lillibrooke and the Heritage Venues team from the very start. From the first show around with Lauren, to our planning meetings and emails with Julia, and then for our big day with Helen and all the wonderful event staff, we could not fault them! Everyone was so lovely, helpful and congratulatory whenever we interacted with them! We also had so many compliments about the venue from our guests - especially with regards to the food, it was all incredible! Having the separate spaces for the ceremony, drinks reception and wedding breakfast was brilliant as it really sectioned out the day and helped it flow nicely. While we didn't hire out the incredible looking Manor House for our day, having the use of the Cottage Room for final prep (and as a little quiet hideaway space) was wonderful! We would highly recommend to future couples to look at booking the Manor House though - that would have been so convenient! We had the best day ever so please book your wedding at Lillibrooke Manor & Barns - you won't regret it!!
Claire & Dan

From start to finish with booking our wedding, I couldn’t fault Lillibrooke and the team. We booked during lockdown and even via zoom we fell in love with the place. The whole journey of dealing with the team, especially Jo making sure our needs were met. Dealing with suppliers and taking in all our requests. Helen on the day was super helpful as the rest of the team so polite and attentive. Staff are so organised and make sure your day goes well. My main concern was having low / boring points through the wedding, but not once did I find this. The venue helps to flow your ceremony to the evening very well. All our guests said how they loved the venue, the stunning gardens didn’t even need much decorations as they are beautiful in their own rights. Highly recommend staying at the Manor House as well, beautiful and a perfect way to wake up to married life. Thank you again for everything.

Thank you to the catering team who prepared and served the most incredible food, we got so many compliments about it being the nicest wedding food they’d ever had and thank you to Donna and the bar staff for looking after everyone.

Any questions we had were answered extremely promptly and both us and our guests were guided very smoothly throughout the day by the event team, who honestly went above and beyond to make our day, they were always one step ahead of us with little things that needed doing throughout. The food and drink was also absolutely incredible and commented on by many of our guests. We would not hesitate to recommend the venue to anyone!

Thank you so much! We are delighted to say that it was an absolute perfect day and we’re still in an absolute bubble of happiness - it’s not really sunk in yet! We had blue skies and a beautiful, sunny drinks reception on Saturday! I cannot fault the entire Heritage team - without exception, everyone there went out of their way to make sure that we and all of the guests had the best day and kept things running smoothly. Annabel was great and Josh the bar man really went out of his way to hunt us down batteries and fix fairy lights! Please pass on my thanks and we will of course be writing glowing reviews and recommending you to everyone!

What an incredible place! Lillibrooke took our breathe away when we first visited it almost 3 years ago and ever since has exceeded our expectations. From moving our wedding due to covid, to opening up the Manor House as a guest house, they have never disappointed us. On the day, everything went seamlessly and a big shout out to Vincent who was unbelievable. Every single guest went out of their way to tell us how awesome he was. We cannot thank you enough Lillibrooke!

We had our Wedding at Lillibrooke Manor and it could not have been more perfect! From our initial engagement with Lauren who showed us around the venue prior to booking, through to being assigned the amazing Jo as our Operations Manager and finally Sam & Donna who were our on day contacts the service we received was nothing short of first class and took away so much of the stress that comes with planning a wedding. Since the day we've had so many amazing comments about the venue and my company are even considering hiring it out for a party later in the year! Thank you to everyone at Lillibrooke, you made our dream day come true and it will hold a special place in our hearts forever.
