Alicia & Declan Hunt, June 2019

We couldn’t have chosen a better venue for our Wedding Day; Hirst Priory was the most magical setting. I wanted everything to be perfect and Hazel and her team made sure it was. The service received at Hirst Priory is second to none, Hazel and her team are so helpful and accommodating; nothing is too much trouble and they understand how important a wedding day is for a couple and their families.

The venue was absolutely stunning, with every guest commenting on how breath-taking it was. The newly decorated rooms were beautiful and the reception room was so bright and fresh. Guests were so impressed with the beautiful vaults downstairs and the reception room, decorated so tastefully and classy by Blush Venue Décor. The grounds and woodland of Hirst Priory gave the wedding day an extra ‘wow’ factor, accommodating our surprise fireworks for our guests.

I can’t recommended Hirst Priory enough, whether you want a rustic wedding in the woodland, or like us, a glamourous, timelessly decorated wedding day, it will excel. The food was amazing, with all of our family and friends commenting on how generous the food sizes were and how delicious it was. Thank you so much Hazel, we will be forever grateful for you helping make our special day the best day of our lives… I wish we could do it all over again!

Hirst Priory is perfect! I cannot recommend it enough and no review will ever do this place justice.
We got married on the 25/05/19 and from booking 2 years before we knew we loved the place but our actual day exceeded every expectation.
Hazel and her team couldn’t do enough for us and they went above and beyond to ensure our day was perfect!
I am honestly gutted it is all over our whole experience of Hirst Priory was magical from start to finish!

Amanda & Matt, April 2019

Hazel was a huge help and support for us from the very moment we met her at our show around through to the end of our wedding celebrations. The arrangements, venue and organisation made our special day, bespoke, relaxing and a memory to cherish. We would recommend Hazel and her team at Hirst Priory any time, especially when having to avert a crisis such as the best man dropping the rings!

Linda Walker, April 2019

My daughter and son in law got married at Hirst Priory on April 6th. Hazel and her team were fantastic throughout the whole planning process and on the day. Everything flowed seamlessly around us, meaning we could truly relax and enjoy ourselves. The accommodation is also of an exceptionally high standard. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you’re unsure about where to hold your special event go and visit, you won’t be disappointed.

Claire & Alan, April 2019

Hirst Priory was the first and last wedding venue we visited! We immediately fell in love with the beautiful setting and the wonderful people who work there! From the beginning Hazel and her team were very helpful and accommodating, especially when we wanted a Landrover Defender Pizza Oven in the evening!! Every single person there worked so hard to make our day special and they did not fail!

The woodland setting, the Vaults, the main rooms, not to mention the bedrooms are beyond beautiful and lend themselves to any wedding, whatever the theme! Not to mention the breakfast was fab!! All the guests loved the venue and were full of complements for the staff and all Hirst Priory’s partners (Halo, Cater Me Tasty, DJ). We will be back for whatever our next party is!
