The venue is wonderful and the layout worked perfectly for us as the ceremony barn was seamlessly turned into a casino with pic'n'mix and Photo Booth during the breakfast. The venue was just as we wanted it when we arrived on the morning. Dawn and the team did an amazing job on the day to make sure everything went smoothly and were flexible with the schedule while we were enjoying our day. The day went without a hitch, family and friends all commented on how amazing the day was, so thank you to Dawn and the team for making it such an amazing day!
Gemma & Sean
Thank you do much for all your help and effort before and during our wedding. We had an absolutely amazing day and could not fault anything about The Ashes Team or Venue. All our guests are still talking about our day and that is down to you guys. My 6 year old daughter even said 'mummy i would like to get married at The Ashes because i love it' - how amazing would that be!!
Simone

Mr & Mrs Evans
I haven't been able to find a card that expresses the words we feel. From beginning to end, you have all been outstanding. I remember how enthusiastically Sarah showed us around the barns for the first time...although we were getting married abroad, it was really important to me that our reception venue was just as special. Dawn, you have been the perfect guide - your understanding, compassion and patience is appreciated more than you know, you put us at ease and ensured us everything would be ok! Please pass on our thanks to Jackie and Dave who helped make such a brilliant job of our decorations. Everyone has been so impressed with the barns, the impeccable service and the most wonderful food served!

The Ashes Team,
thank you for all your help and advice. You were all so kind and helpful. The building is absolutely beautiful and we couldn't of been happier with the venue.
Thank you all so much!
Alice and James
James and I just wanted to say how wonderful you all were in making our dream wedding day come true. You were so fantastic in setting the venue up and ensured everything was sorted down to the very last detail. I know that both parents felt like the whole day went without a hitch. We really did have the best day of our lives and can't imagine a day at another venue!
Kitzy and Karl
The Ashes venue was the first thing we booked post engagement. From initial consultation to the days after the wedding the whole team have just been fantastic. Our wedding did not follow the usual set up or flow and the Ashes team were more than accomodating in helping us achieve our vision for the big day. As a result we were able to have live drums, a steel band, a horse, smoke bombs, a drone, coffee patron and sparklers to name but a few things! We could not recommend the Ashes team highly enough, a beautiful lush location and team that truly look after you.
Louise & James
The best venue we could have ever wished for. It really was the best day of our lives.
Michael and Katie
From the moment we saw the Ashes online we knew it was he perfect venue for our wedding. We had the most amazing wedding day. All of the staff were friendly and knowledgeable on the run up to the wedding day and on the wedding day itself. The catering staff were brilliant and the service the provided outstanding. Our events manager Steph was professional and approachable. She made us feel very relaxed on the run up to the wedding and made sure the day ran smoothly. A brilliant venue where we had the perfect wedding day with memories to last a life time.
Charlotte and John
I can't thank you enough for the attention to detail and all your friendly advice. Keep doing what you do as I couldn't have asked for anything more. Our day was absolutely perfect. Thank you.
Mr and Mrs Murphy & Mrs and Mr Bangi

Chelsie and Simon Taylor
We just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU for making our wedding day extra special. Everyone had a fantastic time. Everything went without a hitch and you were all fantastic. We wish we could do it all again - lol. Thanks again guys, keep up your amazing work!
Tom & Sian
Thank you so much for making our wedding day truly fantastic. All the beauty and splendour of the Ashes would have been nothing if not organised and well-run, which is exactly what you made it. We wish the very best of luck in everything to come and thank you once again.
Laura's mum Yvonne
I would like to say an enormous thank you to yourself and all your staff involved on the planning of my beautiful daughters wedding at The Ashes on Friday June 3rd. It was practically perfect! So much planning and preparation but it paid off. An amazing day enjoyed by all. Everyone who attended Laura and Sean's wedding said how fantastic it was, and those that weren't so lucky to be there have admired the photographs so much. Laura and Sean are so happy and it showed all day. Thank you and everyone again!
Hollie & Chris

You are the best at what you do and it shines through - We wish we could do it all over again!
Sue and Kim Barnett
Just a quick note to say Thank You! to everyone who worked so hard to make our wedding day on 21/12/16 so special. We had a brilliant day and our guests gave us so much positive feedback about the venue and the food. The staff are a credit to the venue and I know it is a really well oiled machine not just those who help with planning but all the staff who turn up day after day to clean and tidy and help get everything ready. I know their days are very long and hard work. A final big thanks to Jayne she was great, kept on top of everything and was very calm and organised. We really appreciated everything and it made our day definitely a day to remember. Please pass on our thanks to all your team.
Mr & Mrs Scott
We wanted to send you a note to say thank you so much Sarah for all your help both in the run up & on the day. We honestly had the most perfect day and loved every minute of it. The Ashes is a stunning venue and speaks for itself but you and the rest of the team there make it that much more special.
Some of our friends are getting married at The Ashes next September and we can't wait to come back! Hopefully they will be as lucky as us with their event planner! You really did go above & beyond especially trying to control my uncle (toast master!!!)

Thanks again so much!

Love Holly & Andy x x x

Thank you for making our wedding the best day of our lives. Amazing! Despite running over sooooo much! Big thanks to everyone involved, but especially Sarah and also to Wendy from the catering side of things. Perfect day!
Mr & Mrs Buckingham - Brides Parents
We would like to formerly thank everyone involved from the Ashes Wedding Venue, especially Jayne, your advice, preparation and involvement ensured everything flowed smoothly throughout the day and the evening.

We arrived early, anxious, stressed and nervous, we were greeted with smiles and helped with unloading the dresses and shown around the venue to see how magical it was looking. Within minutes of arriving it was clear the day was going to be a day to remember for us and all of our guests. The weather was excellent and we all had an amazing day which is in our hearts and memories forever. We also have loads of amazing pictures that were captured by the photographer.

Many of the guests have since been in touch to tell us the wedding was probably the best wedding they had ever been to.

We are extremely grateful for you all making our daughters wedding to Jaco a truly magnificent day.

Many thanks to you all,

Kind regards,

Stephen & Angela Buckingham
Rebecca and Daniel Jones
My wedding day was absolutely perfect! From the moment I arrived at The Ashes until the very end, Lisa you were extremely attentive! The venue that day was stunning made even more magical by the weather and I felt very blessed. The decoration of both barns was perfect - I couldn't have done a better job. I, unfortunately forgot my instructions which turned out to be for the best! The ceremony went without a hitch, and the bridal party were organised perfectly by Lisa when I was having a little moment of panic. Lisa never left me without a drink during the photographs and drinks reception and was hand at any given moment. Ben and Sarah, Lisa is a credit to your team and I cannot thank her enough for making my wedding day everything that I had dreamed of. To all the team - when I have phoned for help or sent emails, thank you for your support.
