Thank you will never be enough for giving us our perfect day.

Kathryn, our wedding manager, was just brilliant!

From our first meeting, I felt reassured we were in good hands. We recognise the hard work that goes on ‘behind the scenes’ and would like to convey our thanks to everybody involved.

All staff were polite, friendly and professional. Kevin would like a special thanks to the bar staff who worked so hard!

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to you for everything you did to make our wedding run as smoothly as it did! You work incredibly hard and I can’t believe how much you have to do. We really appreciate all your hard work and effort put into our day. We’re having serious wedding blues and want to do it all over again. Thank you for being at the other end of the phone to me when I was in a kerfuffle (constantly) I don’t know what I would’ve done without you!

We didn’t let the rain ruin our day!

Had the most magical day at Leez Priory. Getting married has always been such a huge dream of mine and Leez made that dream come true! From arriving at the cottage the night before right until we left the day after the wedding. Thank you SOOO much to Sue Wilson for everything you did, from answering my inundated emails to holding the umbrella over me and holding my dress & being there on our day and making EVERYTHING perfect!

If I could do it all again, Leez priory will forever be the first place I’d choose!

Thank you so much again!

Fantastic wedding venue where we celebrated our daughter’s marriage. The staff could not have been more helpful and professional. The day was well managed by the venue planner. Food was good and the building and grounds were spectacular.

Just another massive thank you!
We are amazed at just how perfect our day was. We enjoyed every single minute and it never would have run so smoothly without you.
We loved the tower, the great hall, the dance floor, the food and everything else. The staff are a credit to the venue, nothing was too much trouble and we were truly made to feel so special.
I’m sure we will be back to one of your dinner events. Hope to see you again.
