We had the most amazing most beautiful outdoor Summer Wedding, marrying in the carriageway and it was just as beautiful with our guests seated out on the beautiful lawn facing us.

Friends and family have been saying all week  how they wish they could go back and do it all over again and we feel the same.

Would highly recommend Leez Priory to anyone wanting a really special wedding.
