Good afternoon Leez priory team,

I would like to start by saying how impressed we were with Sunita she was completely flawless and nothing was to much to ask for. Everything that we asked for was done and perfect. I know that it’s not just one person there is a team of people that make it work as well as it did so I would love it if you could pass on my personal thanks to each and everyone of the team from the groundsman how made the venue so lovely and clean to the cleaners that made the rooms appear brand new and clean.. to the Bar girls and boys to the chef and their team of people that made the most perfect food that I have ever tasted ( not one person said anything bad about the food) one person controlled this along side our nerves though and that was Sunita guiding the whole thing throughout this lady is a very valuable member of your team  and is very dedicated to what she does and she executes it so well.

So to you Sunita I really do hope you know just how perfect you made our day the venue the way you sorted out everything even when Karen locked herself out of the fisherman’s cottage, you are a complete star and I am so so glad that you wanted to work with us to make our day as special as possible.

To the management team of Leez priory I really do hope you recognise the value and skills that Sunita has, the lady is fantastic at her job and is a real asset to you.

As you can tell by this message we were 100% impressed by the whole day you made it so magical and a memory we will have for ever

Many thanks – Matt and Karen Charles

Bride & Groom – Mr & Mrs Lennox

We just wanted to say a massive Thank you for our amazing wedding on Thursday 24th June. Everyone has commented on how blown away they were with the venue and how welcoming the staff were. So thank you all it really means a lot. Food was great too.

A lot of guests made the comment that Leez Priory is by far the best venue they have ever been to and for a wedding.

While the wedding was slightly different to what most people are accustomed to with regards to no dance floor and the music wasn’t pumping; I think its fair to say it made people talk to each other, which made it all that little bit more special, as typically people stick to who they know at family events and weddings; but everyone took the time to speak to each other, which I appreciated more than most.

We know other couples had mentioned Covid weddings were special, but we didn’t appreciate it until it was our wedding, just exactly what they meant, but we do now.

Sue we would like to give you a big hug and say you were totally amazing! Leading up and on the day you managed to keep both myself and James calm throughout the day (even when i had a melt down with the flowers!) You kept on track and stuck to the strict timetable too. Thank you so much, and to the lady helping you Sameria?

We cannot thank you and all of the staff behind the scenes enough, for making our wedding day as truly magical as it could be.

Kristy it was so lovely to finally meet you today and I cannot thank you enough for letting us explore and work with you at Leez Priory. It was truly a dream come true for me and I fell in love with the venue the moment I stepped foot on the grounds.

Thank you so much again – I am already harassing my husband for us to renew our vows at the venue! If you’d ever like to work together again, I’d be over the moon to do so.
