Testimonials Catriona & James – 11th August The name really does say it all! One month ago, me and my husband celebrated our wedding at TAP and they ensured that we had THE best day! Everything about it- thanks to Angie was perfect. The fantastic organisation and knowledge of the team ensured that not only the day but the build-up to went without fault. From the moment we entered TAP the day before our wedding, Paul and Jane made us feel completely at home and were so welcoming. The recommended list of suppliers are ace too- #premcrew,#treborphotography, #brownsblooms, #heartandsoulcakes and #hertsevents were all ace! Thank you very much and I would highly recommend this venue to get married in! x Mr & Mrs Tredgett - 8th September We recently had our wedding at That Amazing Place and it truly did live up to its name. The venue is amazing they got that right, it has a real homely feel which just makes everyone so comfortable. The staff are (that word again) amazing ! Nothing is too much trouble. Angie was always on hand to answer my questions. I am a control freak normally but I found myself completely trusting in Angie that she would know best. I went from wanting to decorate the place myself to being able to hand over the reins and wow am I happy I did. She did a fantastic job and when our chilled BBQ plans were ruined by the weather Angie and Sarah (from Premcrew) managed to turn our plans on their head but make it better than we had ever imagined. It all worked so well and we couldn’t be more grateful to them both. Paul was so nice whenever we met him, always on hand to help out. He took the time throughout the day to came and check on me and see if I was ok. He even entertained some bored lil ones (pre wedding) with the gorgeous new puppy Alfie. We were able to have our doggy Marvel at the venue with us the whole day, with no restrictions as to where he could and couldn’t be, that meant the world to us. Also a big shout out to their DJ Andy he kept everyone on the dance floor and was such a nice guy. The venue is so pretty and a beautiful setting to start the rest of your lives together but what really makes this place so amazing is the people, they felt like part of the family thank you for everything. Hattie & Rhys – 16th September We got married at That Amazing Place just a couple days ago, with family coming from a far it was important we found somewhere that felt like home from home. That Amazing Place (TAP) truly did this, from its beautiful surroundings to its impeccable decor, TAP couldn't have lived up to its name or our expectations anymore. Paul made our family & friends feel at home, so much so he felt like a friend! Angie made our wedding day run so smoothly and just how we wanted it that so many commented on just how 'us' it was. This place is truly special & if your looking for a homely wedding with the wow factor, then this is the place! � xxx

Just want to thank the whole team at That Amazing Place for everything they done to make sure our wedding day went ahead.

That Amazing Place was the first venue that we viewed, and we left knowing that it was the venue for us. Paul and Jane were also so welcoming and always went out of their way to make sure we was happy and made our time amazing. See you at the next party!

Hi Angie. Thank you so much for all that you have done to make our amazing wedding happen. From the first time we spoke to you on the phone right through until the day of the wedding you have been supportive and helpful with everything that we needed. Nothing was too much trouble for you and you always stayed in contact with us about the guidance as and when it changed. It certainly wasn’t an easy time to plan a wedding and full of ups and downs, but the day was all that we could have asked for. Please also pass on my thanks to Paul who was very kind on the day, and throughout the evening to us and our guest, and made a positive impression on all that he spoke to. Being able to stay at the venue with our guests was lovely touch as well as getting ready there in the morning with the bridesmaids. You managed to maintain the guidance but not impede on our day and we were so impressed with this. After having to cancel our wedding in Italy, I didn’t know how I would feel about getting married in England. Then when we decided to move the wedding up by 2 weeks with just 48 hours notice I had no idea what it would be like but we both had the best day of our lives. All of the suppliers that you suggested also were amazing and accommodating, which was really helpful. Thank you again for everything that was done by That Amazing Place, and especially Angie.

Our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect, it was no where near the wedding we thought we’d have and dreamed about but turned out to be so much more – who knew this was even possible?! We fell in love with the venue two years ago; its stunning grounds and picture perfect manor house, but the thing we loved the most was its family feel. We remember being told by Paul the owner the venue would be exclusively ours for the day to do as we pleased – and two years on we can honestly say he really did mean that. Angie our Events Manager went above and beyond any expectation I had of an events manager. Getting married during a global pandemic threw up a few hurdles of date changes and restrictions to name a few. But Angie was there each time, reassuring us making the whole process smooth and enjoyable – even when planning your wedding day in 48hours!. Every part of the day was truly amazing! That Amazing Place will always hold a place in our hearts as that is the place we FINALLY got to say “I do” on 25th September 2020 during our fully covid compliant wedding. We honestly can’t thank you enough for creating unforgettable memories that will last a life time.

We were married under Covid-19 in September 2020 and I am beyond thankful that this was our venue. The venue itself is stunning, finished to such a beautiful and high standard. Every visit we were welcomed like family and the entire team were outstanding. Food for our wedding (provided by Premier Crew Catering) was absolutely beautiful and everything we asked for. Covid-19 has posed a specific set of challenges for couples getting married this year, but even an international pandemic is no match for Angie, the Wedding and Events Director. Her support, contact and determination to give us the wedding we wanted despite everything going on meant that we didn’t stop smiling start to finish. She was a complete superstar. We both agreed that, although it wasn’t the original day we had planned, we couldn’t have had a better day. I couldn’t recommend That Amazing Place highly enough, they were incredible. Thank you everyone!
Melissa and Tom
We had a pandemic wedding for 15 guests after changing our plans….. I believe it was 4 times. Each time Angie was very accepting and optimistic, and each time our numbers were cut, put us at ease that our wedding will still be the best day of our lives. And thanks to her and her team, we had a perfect day! It was even better than we expected, so thank you That Amazing Place! A beautiful venue with beautiful people, inside and out!
