Ashfield House wins Best Wedding Venue (Town & City) in the 2018 The Wedding Industry Awards

We can’t quite believe it!

We’ve just about picked ourselves up off the floor following our shock win at the 2017 The Wedding Industry Awards for Best Wedding Venue (Town & City) for the whole of the great British isles.

Now that shock has hit us doubly hard (in a great way) as we have been declared the Best Venue yet again in the 2018 awards.

If that wasn’t good enough, we came overall UK runner up in the Best Event team category, gaining a Highly Commended award to add to the trophy cabinet.

Over 25,000 votes are processed for The Wedding Industry Awards categories, for wedding businesses all over the country. We don’t take our win lightly and are so overwhelmed at the incredible feedback our couples gave to judges.

Here’s some of the many many amazing things that were said about past couples who chose to get married at Ashfield House in 2017:

“From the first time we visited Ashfield House, the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Right from the start they were attentive, flexible and more than co-operative and this continued right through to the day itself. Nothing was too much and our own ideas were encouraged! Amanda, our specific wedding co-ordinator, was just lovely and amazing the whole way through. She even had to deal with our cake collapsing en route to the venue and made sure this was sorted so that it didn’t affect the day.”

“From the second we walked in Ashfield was our venue. We instantly fell in love with it. It was perfect, beautifully decorated but with enough scope to add your own personality. It managed to be grand, homely and quirky all at once. The love and attention that has gone in to every aspect of the house shows through. Pretty much every guest told us it was the best food they’d ever had at a wedding. Oh and the drummer from our band liked it so much he booked his own wedding!”

“The team at Ashfield house are absolutely wonderful. We didn’t have to worry about a single thing on our wedding day and everything was taken care of to the highest level. The staff were extremely helpful throughout the whole process and listened to what we wanted and helped us achieve this.”

“Katie and her team helped me every step of the way. They helped me to save money by advising alternatives and helping me out with finding the best people to make our day perfect. From the moment we booked, Katie and the team made sure what i wanted come together. It was stress free and such a joy to have them along side me.”

“Josh was particularly helpful – he helped us organise everything and it all went to plan perfectly.”

“Carol is amazing! She is such an asset to Ashfield House. She listens to what you want for your day & she makes sure it happens. The whole team work so well with each other making dealing with them so easy.”

“Honestly can’t fault a thing Ashfield house did for us. Nothing was too much for them and everything was PERFECT from the minute we walked in to the moment we left, everything we ever wished for, was granted for our wedding. The staff are incredible, the food is truly delicious and everyone was so pleased with what they had been presented with. A day two years in the planning, went on without a hitch and we knew we we’re in perfect hands. You trust your dream day with them and they deliver!”

To say these comments made our day would be an understatement. Thank you so much to all the couples who took the time to vote for us and leave such wonderful feedback. We couldn’t have done it without you!
