We honestly loved every minute and everything was perfect. We feel so lucky. Thank you.
We enjoyed the comfort of the wedding flat and are looking forward to trying your wine - thank you for that gift!
Matt, the owner, is kind and knowledgeable with a real appreciation for anyone wanting to make their day really fun. I would not want to have a rigidly traditional, formal wedding here because the space, atmosphere and mindsets of everyone involved are geared towards a more free flowing, personal day.
Matt was really happy to facilitate almost all of our plans and support all our guests, including a wheelchair user, to make the most of the day. It took very little effort to have the venue looking fantastic with the grounds already looking so great, but again we were pretty free to make it look how we wanted.
A real added bonus of the longhouse is Danica, the wedding co-ordinator, she really helps to make the day your own. She stayed involved in lots of the planning to help make sure she knew how the day should run from our point of view as the couple. On the day, she was a fantastic support and made it all run incredibly smoothly even with our strange catering setup.
Cannot recommend highly enough, but absolutely go and have a look for yourself.
We couldn't of asked for more professional, helpful staff who made us feel so comfortable from the first day we met them when we started planning our day to the minute we left on Sunday morning. There was no stress needed at all with the staff of the longhouse, everything was dealt with for us so we didn't need to worry.
We turned up an hour later than what was planned which meant the whole itinerary for the day was an hour behind schedule but that didn't matter, they sorted it all out and everything was absolutely fine and we ended up still being on time for the evening guests to arrive!
The staff at the longhouse made our day so very special and we thank them for that. We are both so glad that we chose to have our reception there and we recommend them to anyone that is planning their wedding.
However, that's not what really topped it for us. Matt, who owns and runs the Longhouse, does a brilliant job. He's relaxed, flexible and personable, yet efficient and reassuring. Always smiling, always happy to provide advice and suggestions. He so clearly enjoys what he's built and is so passionate about it. We honestly couldn't have had a better day.
When Matt first took us on a tour of The Longhouse on our initial viewing he went into so much detail which was fantastic. As a newly engaged couple with limited Pinterest research we personally didn't really know what sort of questions we should be asking. Therefore it was great to have someone speaking from years of experience be so upfront about what he was able to offer. He answered the sorts of questions we didn't even know we had which was just so helpful. There was no hard sell or persuasion, just simply a clear and thorough explanation of everything you could think of. Matt also spent time getting to know us and our relationship at this first viewing. When we told him that we had met while working at Disney World and wanted to have a Disney theme to our wedding he thought it was a brilliantly fun idea. This was in stark contrast to other venues we had visited who were too formal to be any fun. This enthusiasm continued throughout our contact over the year and culminated in Matt and the other staff wearing Minnie and Mickey ears on our wedding day for us. We were so grateful to them for going the extra mile to embody our theme!
We followed recommendations from Matt for our photographers (Jo Hansford), caterers (Taste), and additional lighting (Storm Productions) and were really impressed and more than happy with all of these suppliers for their service, value for money and end results. In short he knows what he's talking about and has a great network of contacts which will make your day perfect.
On our wedding day everything was seamless and all our guests commented on the lovely venue and the relaxed and fun atmosphere which is just what we wanted. The bridal flat is large enough for everyone to get ready in as it has a bedroom, lounge and bathroom. It is also a cosy and homely place to spend your first night as a married couple. The grounds are beautiful and there are some great spots for photos in a relatively small area which is great when you don't want to take loads of time out of your day away from your guests. The venue is big enough to accommodate a large number of guests but cosy enough to keep everyone together all day which is exactly what we wanted.
The popper on the back of my dress kept coming undone on my wedding day and I was worried it would happen during our first dance, ruining the photos. Matt ended up calling his mum to bring in a needle and cotton and my caterer sewed me into my dress while I was having my desert! This is just one example of how The Longhouse is willing to go above and beyond. We felt that they really cared about us, our values and our wedding day. We couldn't be happier with our decision to get married here. We had the most perfect day, our way.
