Kathryn, we wanted to say a huge THANK YOU! To your team and especially to you, our day at Leez was everything and more that we ever dreamt it would be. The venue looked amazing, all the staff were brilliant, the food was really tasty, and the drinks were the main reason for our sore heads the next day!

We would like to especially thank you, you were brilliant, you made the whole experience as special as we had hoped, from our initial meetings with you organising all the menus to the day itself, nothing was to much trouble, accommodating our Ushers with their unique sense of humour (Karen!) to making sure that the day ran without a hitch. You. Where. The. Best!

We hope that our guests behaved and that you had some treats from the sweet table in the end.

Please extend our thanks to your team and we will definitely be pointing future brides and grooms towards Leez Priory!

We recently got married at Leez and it was the wedding of my dreams. It was perfect in every way, Charlotte Case was our wedding planner and she was amazing. She was always on hand and ensured our day ran smoothly. Me and my bridal party stayed at the fisherman’s cottage the night before the big day, we were welcomed with breakfast on the morning of our wedding which was the perfect start. The grounds of Leez priory are absolutely stunning, it really is a dream venue! We had our ceremony in the tower and it was perfect we then followed with the wedding breakfast in the great hall and it looked absolutely beautiful. The food also tasted amazing. We stayed in the rooms on the night of our wedding and it was the perfect finish to a perfect day. The staff were so welcoming and friendly throughout the whole of our day, their DJ was also amazing! Leez truly is a spectacular venue and thank you to each and every one of you for making our wedding day as special as it was!

Our daughter married here recently. What an absolutely stunning venue. Everything was perfect. Food, staff and rooms. Everything ran smoothly and her wedding planner was fantastic. Helped with any issues or concerns that we had. If you are looking for a breathtaking venue, then this is the place. Well done to everyone that made her day so special. It was her fairytale wedding.

Parents of the Bride

As the bride’s parents, I would like to say a big thank you to all the staff at Leez-Priory, for the exceptional day Sam and Jim had on the 25th January. From the few calls I made to the office after booking to the evening before in the cottage, where we had a lovely evening and a relaxing spa (even if the thought of getting out of it was terrifying in January), to the day of the wedding and finally leaving on the 26th was brilliant, although it went so quickly.

We found the staff were friendly, including the ones that work behind the scenes the cleanliness of the house the beautiful gardens food preparation and the ones I only spoke to on the phone in the office was great. The bar staff were lovely and I know my husband enjoyed holding the bar up occasionally! I believe I managed to speak to someone from most areas, the guests have also said how good the staff were. The wedding breakfast was lovely, and we’ve had lots of guests saying how much they enjoyed the food. (Bet you’ve never had the entire top table disappear outside for a puff in the middle of dinner before!) Think that started as a desperate bid before the speeches started and I was not going to be left alone.

Lastly, we would like to say Sue who was our Personal Wedding Manager was amazing, she was on the ball the whole time, and helped me get the things I needed to do, done, her attention to detail was noticed by some of the guests you have a little gem.

Leez- Priory was a perfect venue for Sam, she loves history and fell in love with it straight away on our first visit.

So again please say a big thank you to all your staff.

We recently got married at Leez Priory, and there is nothing but praise from myself, my husband, my family and guests. We were fortunate enough to have Sue as our coordinator and I love this woman to pieces, she was so happy, helpful and understanding. In fact, all the staff were fantastic. The bar was run well with no queuing, the DJ played great songs, the wait staff were friendly and quick, and the chefs produced amazing food. the venue is stunning, and really gives you that wow moment when you pull up. When you enter the carriageway you are still in awe, but enter the bar and sitting rooms and it feels so cosy. We were married in the great hall and had food in the coach house. You can use any part of the building so we wanted to try and make use of it all. They were decorated beautifully, and just how we wanted them. I would recommend their recommended suppliers: Neil Bailey for photographs, he knows the venue and the staff well and knows exactly what to do with you. Plus he really is the loveliest man you’ll meet! Maxine for Hair and Makeup, she worked wonders making me look and feel ready for photos (I normally hide from a camera) and helped me into my dress, which was no mean feat. She and Nav were very calming in the morning. Springfield florist, flowers were beautiful and Gemma knew exactly what I wanted, even when I didn’t! Steve Hearn for Caricatures. Steve is lovely, friendly and very talented. My guests loved his work! The accommodation was beautiful and clean as well, and breakfast the next day was perfect. I’ve had such good feedback from my guests about the day, staff and food. There were no issues or problems I had to worry about and we genuinely loved being there. Thank you Leez, for making our special day, just that little bit more special!
