Wedding Testimonials

“We were married at Sylvan Glen at the end of February and our day was everything we wanted and more, thanks to Donna and her amazing team at SG! From the second we arrived, we felt like we could relax and that everything was taken care of. The house is lovely and has everything you could possibly need – it’s so rare to find somewhere that can house so many people so comfortably, and having everyone together was one of the real highlights of our weekend. All the food supplied was fresh and delicious and having the coffee shop onsite was an added bonus and definite lifesaver! No request was too big and they really went out of their way to make sure our day went off without a hitch and everyone felt comfortable. Amazing value for money, we’d do it all again in a heartbeat. All our guests commented on how amazing the venue was! I couldn’t recommend it more. Take us back!”

“My wife and I recently got married at Sylvan Glen Country House. The service, house, wedding ceremony area and wedding reception venue were all amazing. We honestly could not be any happier with the entire weekend. Donna, Matt and the team make you feel like the place is your own and make sure your every wish is catered for. Everyone who attended our wedding has commented on how beautiful all aspects of the day were. Those who stayed in the house with us for the weekend also have remarked how fantastic the setting was. We are truly grateful that we decided to have our special day at Sylvan Glen because it was such a homely, friendly, picturesque, and vast property to take in all weekend.” – Lee Pulbrook

“What truly makes this venue the perfect place for a wedding is its owners Donna and Matt. Planning a wedding is a stressful time for a bride and Donna and Matt went absolutely above and beyond all of our expectations. I’d email Donna at all times of the day and she’d usually get back to me within an hour, she was happy to accommodate any requests and even made a special trip to the post office to collect some of our deliveries that had arrived there too early! They gave us exactly the right amount of space, so that we could spend the weekend relaxing comfortably with family, but always knew that they were there to answer any questions or help in any way. If you are after an amazingly beautiful wedding venue with delicious food and a lovely country feel, you simply cannot go past Sylvan Glen.” – Stephanie F
