What our couples say

“The Wood Hall completely blew us away...we had no idea we walked past such a glorious space everyday. The thing that made it so special to us was the beautiful stained glass windows, which gave the space a church like feel without having to have a religious ceremony.”

Hannah and Seb

“Being married surrounded by books absolutely appealed to us; and in such a beautiful space. Everyone commented on how special and unique the venue was – people really enjoyed the sense of history. As a couple, we appreciated the inclusive attitude and the flexible approach to the day.”

Jennie and Sandi
