“The most epic venue I’ve come across in England.”

Catie & Dan

Helen photographed the lovely Catie and Dan’s wedding here last summer, July in fact.   It was a beautiful English summer garden wedding.  And that was Helen’s verdict on our lil ole venue, “The most epic venue I’ve come across in England” – wow, thanks Helen!

As Catie told Wed Magazine, when she and Dan got engaged, they knew they wanted a venue that was ‘outdoors, relaxed and as natural as possible.’  Ah, that’ll be us then.   And it was.  Dan says, “We visited one venue and knew this was exactly what we wanted.”  Although they visited us in March (when according to Dan it was ‘grey and cold’ – brrrr…) they had the vision to see the venue would be perfect for their dream summer garden wedding.

Helen is an amazing photographer (we’re trying to get dates together to do a photo shoot here at the venue which we’re both really excited about) as you can see from these beautiful shots of Catie and Dan around the venue, on the river walk, outside the barn door, in the woods and by the river.

You can read Catie’s review of their wedding with us over on the reviews page:

“Dear Nicola

Thank you so much for all your help and care with our wedding – we had the most amazing day!! It surpassed our expectations in every way and we loved every second of it!!

We found you through the Brides magazine supplement and the amazing service started from the day we got engaged – you were so helpful on the phone and then fitted us in to see the venue the next day.

As soon as we walked into Ever After, we knew this was it!  It was the only venue we went to see and we loved how unique it is – it is a beautiful setting and every little detail has been thought of!

Nothing was too much trouble in the run up to the wedding and everything was handled very smoothly. Both you and Sally are amazing and couldn’t do enough for us.

The day itself was absolutely incredible, the feel of the venue, the food and the weather! Everything was taken care of, allowing us to enjoy the most amazing day! I wish we could do all of it again!!  Every person at the wedding commented on how beautiful the venue was and many commented that they had wedding envy!

With our best wishes,

Catie and Dan xx”
