Award-winning wedding venue company Country House Weddings called out to their past real brides and grooms to find out what they loved about their venue. Was it the food, the location, the gardens or the whole package? Let’s find out…


Helpful staff

“We loved how flexible St Audries were with our plans. I was really sure exactly what I wanted and spent a lot of time before the wedding collecting glassware for the tables, having table cloths made and my husband and mother-in-law made all of our menus, favour boxes and names tags. The staff were really great at helping our vision become a reality on the day, happily pinning over 160 brooches to the back of our chairs!”
Candi & Ian Lewis 


Exclusive use

“Our wedding was simply perfect because our loved ones could enjoy the beautiful Leez Priory in whatever way suited them – from drinking tea in the comfortable library, to playing games on the lawn until dark, dancing all night in the disco or chatting in the bar. It was as laid back and relaxing as being in our own home, but with the most stunning backdrop.”
Kelly and Mark Robertson

Attention to detail

“What we loved most about our wedding at Gosfield Hall was the incredible efficiency and attention to detail.  From the moment we contacted the venue, we knew with 100% certainty that everything was in hand and that we would be looked after at every stage of the process. The day itself was perfection.  The whole package – venue, location, accommodation, staff, food, drink, music, decoration – meant zero stress for us and gave us the most memorable day that we will continue to treasure forever.”
Linzi and Chris Meaden


Private location

“We loved how you couldn’t even spot the Clearwell Castle until you were actually driving up the drive. The house and grounds took our breath away! The staff told us it would be our home for the day and it truly was! So warm and welcoming and the staff were super helpful! It is still, and always will be, one of the best days of our lives – thank you!”
Natalie & Michael Powell


Fabulous food

“The St Audries Park staff were friendly, professional, easy going, accommodating and happy to work wonders on regular basis! The organization was superb – everything ran so smoothly! You didn’t even blink an eye when I asked about having my horses in the grounds, you just took it all in your stride. The food was divine and even now, a few years later when I chat to some of my friends, they still relish the memory of the exceptionally good wedding breakfast. St Audries simply felt like home – perfect!”
Izabela and Lucas Pitcher


Cosy atmosphere

“We loved everything! Our friends and family still talk about our wedding at Leez Priory and how it was the best wedding they have been to. We got married in January so we loved how cosy it was with the traditional roaring log fires. It was made even more special by having the accommodation there, we were able to have our closest guests stay overnight and have breakfast together the next day – lovely!”
