Jo and Joe

We don't know where to begin to express how perfect and amazing our wedding day was. We both had the most incredible day - Elmley is the place of dreams. We fell in love with it as soon as we turned down the drive...and we knew we had found our venue, not only is the barn and its giant window striking, the views, the nature, the constant sound of birds calling, the gorgeous shepherd's huts with their ridiculously tasteful decor-everything is just amazing at Elmley - but so are the people!!

Every time we visited we saw your friendly faces and we felt at home. And in the days leading up-your constant presence and helpfulness was so reassuring. It was our dream come true wedding! And Georgina, Gareth and Eleanor - you all played a huge part in making our dream come true...We can't quite believe just how perfect Elmley Nature Reserve and you all are! A little piece of my heart will always be there and we can'y wait to come back!

Thank you for being the best wedding venue around - never change what you are doing. The service you provide is perfect. Thank you so much for everything!

We honestly cannot thank you enough firstly for having THE MOST perfect wedding venue which was everything we ever dreamed of.  We scoured the country to find a venue that would fit with us as a couple and the plans we had for our big day and as soon as we saw Elmley we were blown away!  We absolutely loved the stripped back nature of the barn....Its just perfect.  We loved the relaxed rules approach...And finally - what a lovely bunch of people you all are!  We loved all of our pre-visits and all communications were easy and enjoyable...On the day itself I don't even think I noticed any of you and yet I know you were there making sure everything ran smoothly.  You blended in so well and everything just seemed completely seamless.  We had the most incredible day and couldn't have done it without you all.

Jane & Alan

We have found ourselves telling everyone that Tom and Hayley’s wedding was the best wedding we have ever been to. The venue was fabulous and the food exceptional. The fun we had decorating the barn made the setting inside magical and Hayley’s insistence on making it child friendly was a master stroke.

Alan and I cannot thank you enough for the care and time you took to liaise with us about the arrangements. The camping, shepherd’s huts and house solved so many accommodation problems and the fire-pit kept the diehards happy until the early hours. I have suggested to Tom that he gets in early to book a night in a hut for their first anniversary.
