Our Couples

“Hi to all the team, A week on as Mrs Sharman(!) and I have a quite moment to send a meaningful thank you. From the moment we stepped inside The Old Hall I had ‘that feeling’ and within minutes we knew it was the venue for our special day. I visited 16 venues before viewing The Old Hall, and what sets the venue apart from the others was the customer service, the quality of the venue in terms of finish and of course the beautiful setting. However it’s the customer service from that first visit through to the end of our wedding day which was outstanding. You made us feel that our wedding was just as important to you too, all our requests were answered and on the day the team were incredible. Huge thanks to Laura, Amy, Kirsty and Sophie, what a team!! So professional, approachable and happy! Thank you for everything you did to deliver our perfect wedding. Even Mrs M visited the marquee during set up to give her best wishes. “ September 2019
