Good afternoon Kristy and Sue,

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.

We cannot wait to come back and visit again. Best wishes Mr & Mrs Lennox

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.

We had the best day of our lives on Sunday 23/5/21. Ours was the first post lockdown wedding held at Leez Priory.
The staff were fantastic, the catering was brilliant and everything ran like clockwork. Can’t recommend this beautiful venue enough.

Anna & Leon – 1st Anniversary

Today is our one year anniversary. We feel incredibly lucky that we were able to get married in exactly the way we wanted to and we feel for all those whose weddings have been cancelled since. I imagine our wedding was one of the last that took place at Leez Priory. We had 80 guests during the day and 100 in the evening… no social distancing, no masks. Just fun and enjoyment and being blissfully oblivious of how the world would change.

Today, to celebrate our anniversary, I made my boys dress up in our wedding clothes… including our 8 month old baby Hugo (you might remember I was pregnant when we got married). We listened to our wedding music and had a delicious afternoon tea made for us by a local business. It was wonderful.

It made me think of you and so here I am emailing you to say thank you for being so helpful and for making our day just how we wanted it to be.

I hope you are well and that you will soon be re-opening the doors of Leez Priory.
