“There is a reason why everyone is raving about Prested Hall – because it is THE venue for weddings!

We held our wedding reception at the Hall and it was amazing. Gemma  (events manager), Karen (Hall manager) and their team were brilliant to work with – from the first time we met them, through planning stages, the wedding day itself, the following day at breakfast. We especially loved how responsive they were (which was a god send especially when you are trying to juggle work and wedmin) and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The Hall was beautifully made up on the day. Gemma helped with decorating our cake and treats table (and I’m sure she did much much more without us noticing or asking!). The food was great and everything ran on time. The fireplace was lit especially for us, which made the whole place look extremely cosy!

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Prested Hall, for a very memorable day. We really couldn’t have done it without you!
