Wedding Reviews


Shayne and I just wanted to say a huge thank you for making our day so special.

It was amazing and everything ran very smoothly.

The staff on the day were outstanding. Mike, you and the team did a fabulous job.

The food was better than we hoped for. Shayne went into the kitchen to say thank you to the chefs and was beaming when he realised they were from his home town in South Africa!

All my guests and the Caricaturist said it was the best wedding they had been to and were very complimentary about the venue and your staff.

Thank you so much!!

Our wedding took place at The Pavilion on 31st October. There was lots of change along the way due to COVID. Belinda & Martin did everything they could at every stage to be helpful and supportive. The wedding day went perfectly. The sun even came out on time. The staff looked after us and our guests superbly within the restrictions which had to be followed. The food was excellent both for the wedding dinner and in the evening. Thank you for making our day special for us. - Nicola Barry

Wanted to send you a big huge thank you for making our day so perfect.  We really had a little sprinkling of fairy dust on 22nd June that made our special day amazing. This is entirely down to you and your staff who really did give us the perfect day to remember. The food was delicious and we received so so many compliments on our choice of venue. We cannot thank you enough for all your hard work.”  - Suzanne Beeasley

First off I would like to say a massive thank you for making our day so special. From when I initially inquired about looking around the venue to the actual day itself you were all so helpful and so accommodating. Being only 20 when I was organising the wedding, I didn't feel talked down to or patronised. You gave me all the information I needed and listened to what I wanted. All communication was clear and timely and I never felt uninformed or under pressure as invoices were sent with enough notice before payment was due. Martin was an incredible help to have also, talking us through the schedule and leading our day at the perfect pace. He allowed us to relax and enjoy the day so a big big thank you to him. 

We attended the open day which was very informative and enabled us to view the venue in most of its glory (as the weather was not great) but being able to taste the dishes and make an informative choice was helpful and it was all delicious!

The evening before the wedding we were able to set up most things making the following morning much less stressful. We had access to the whole site and the meeting rooms for me, my bridesmaids, my mother and mother-in-law to get ready. The guests arrived and gathered in a completely separate building meaning we didn't have to worry about being interrupted or seen while getting ready.

The package we got was basic but the service and quality was premium. Worth every single penny and more.
The staff at the Lane End Conference Centre went above and beyond to make sure our day ran as smoothly as possible. It is a day that, as a family, we talk about and look back at very fondly and I know it will be in the years to come. I wish I could relive that day over and over because it was just breathtaking. Thank you so much.” – Beatrice Wright, wedding date: 1st June 2019. 

We would like to thank you and all the staff for everything you did prior to and on the day of our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day - you have all been such a pleasure to work with and we will certainly be recommending the Pavilon when our friends get engaged!

We cannot thank Martin and Sarah enough, they could not do enough for us. We have had so many compliments from our guests who loved the day. I started planning our wedding 2 years in advance and nothing was too much trouble for Martin who would happily arrange a meeting with me to discuss our idea and really bring our vision to life. Organisation wise the day ran exactly to schedule and the wedding breakfast was set up the night before so that I could preview everything and make sure it was how I wanted it to look. The canapés and wedding breakfast meal were absolutely perfect and the service was excellent all the drinks were kept topped up, the food was hot and delicious and very fresh. We had compliments from everyone about the meal. The bar staff were phenomenal and drinks were very reasonably priced. The hog roast we had in the evening was the best we or any of our guests ever had; with lots of people having three platefuls. The next morning Martin and the staff had packed everything up for us as all we had to do was load the car and run to the airport. We cannot praise this venue enough and we now know of a list of people that wish told hold their events here. Thank you Martin and Sarah and rest of the staff that helped and made our wedding dream come true. 

Pavilion Wedding of Kim and JamesDear Martin. We have had endless compliments on the wedding and the venue. Many of our guests said this was one of the best they have been to. Thank you so much to you and your team for making it possible, plus a huge thanks to the chefs for supplying such high quality food.  You have made the process so enjoyable and relaxed! You guided us through the process and listened to all our requests and questions. You really did make all our wishes come true over the whole weekend. We truly feel that you care about your clients and have their best interests at heart . All your staff did a fabulous job too, but there were two members that really stood out not just to me and James but our guests all had the same lovely views. Sarah and Ron really went over and above to make sure we are looked after throughout the day. We can’t thank you all enough. It was a pleasure having you and your team by our sides during this process. A day that we and all our guests will treasure forever. Mr and Mrs Fayers.

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and your team for making our Wedding day and the lead up to it run so well & smoothly. We had so many compliments on the food which was fantastic and how well organised everything was. Sanjay & I really appreciate all the hard work that went into organising the day.

Linda and John Pavilion WeddingWe got married on the 9th September 2017 and wow what a day. Things did go wrong, as they always do, but Martin, Sarah and the team coped with ease and always had a ready solution. The food is beyond description and will rival many a top restaurant. We had afternoon tea followed by a BBQ in the evening. The variety, standard and quantities were beyond compare. The grounds are beautiful and save so all the children could let of some steam. We partied for twelve hours straight yet ever single member of staff had a big beeming smile all day and could not do enough for us and our guests. I will never forget our wedding or the hard working team, who have some amazing ideas to make your day, your day, enough.

From the moment we have booked the Pavilion, we couldn't wait to see what the venue would look like dressed up for our day! The Event Manager Martin was extremely helpful with any requests we've had, he was happy to answer all our questions and arranged a few meetings with us when we needed to discuss further details. We are most grateful to the fact that despite being signed off work sick for the week of our wedding, Martin was there on the day before and on the day of our wedding to ensure things ran as smoothly as possible! When he left that evening, he left us in the capable hands of Sarah who made sure the rest of our evening including our evening buffet went to plan. Sarah was back the following morning to assist with breakfast despite our evening guests not departing the hall until gone 12.30am!! 

We found everyone we spoke to and dealt with at the Pavilion to be helpful and friendly.

Our day ran without a hitch and we cannot thank Martin and Sarah enough for all of their help and hard work!

Toni & Simon Frost

Chartlotte SamWe wanted to write and thank you for making our wedding day such a perfect occassion. We had an absolutely perfect day at The Pavilion, and wish we could do it all again! We were so impressed with the venue and all of the staff, the shining star being Martin (the Wedding Catering Manager) for whom nothing was ever too much. He really is fantastic.

Penny & Colin - The Pavilion wedding at Lane EndAfter months searching for a wedding venue we finally decided on The Pavilion at the Lane End Conference Centre. This venue is gorgeous, with rolling lawns, and newly refurbished wedding room and bar area. The team especially Martin, Sarah and Heni catered to our every whim. The day would not have been so amazing were it not for them. Martin even managed to round up umbrellas out of nowhere so fulfill my dream of having an outside ceremony, as the good old British weather had other ideas. The food was outstanding and they made every effort to cater for all dietary requirements, even the childrens' meal had the adults envious. The wines were exceptional and bar prices extremely reasonable. We asked them to make our cake and cupcakes which were superb and our guests were delighted. We went with the platinum package which relieved us of most of the pre-organising hassle and stress. Martin the wedding coordinator was a god sent and a miracle worker. We would highly recommend this venue for any engaged couple to consider. We had an amazing day and the guests commented that it was one of the best weddings they had ever attended.

We had such an amazing wedding day and experience throughout at The Pavilion.

The staff were amazing and it was such a stress free day for the both of us. We received loads of comments from the guests regarding the food too, so huge compliments to the chef. 

We had a lovely day, cannot fault it, thank you.

Wes & Mel (The Ogles)

Katie & Mark - Wedding at The Pavilion at Lane EndWe had an amazing day which we will never forget!! 

The day run so smoothly and all our family and friends had a fantastic day, 'the best wedding they had been too' one of our family members said.

The food, the venue, the staff especially Martin were amazing.

I just wanted to say we had a fantastic time on Saturday, the pavilion was the perfect venue! Please pass on our thanks to Sarah who was very helpful on the night!! 

Everyone said the food was great (although in all the mingling neither mat or I ate!😊) 
We would certainly recommend the venue to friends as everyone said how great it was!

I wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Martin and the rest of the team for making Emma & Wezley's wedding such a wonderful day. Everything ran perfectly, particularly the weather (although that's one thing you can't take the credit for!), and I was so pleased with every aspect of the day. 

The day ran like clockwork, the food, drink and service were excellent and the venue was just perfect as many people have said to me. I'm sure the smooth running of the day hid a lot of hard work and organisation behind the scenes.

We honestly couldn't have asked for anything better.

Please pass on my sincere thanks to all involved and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone else looking for a wedding venue.

With very best wishes and our sincere thanks.

Graham (Father of the Bride)

Thank you to everyone at The Pavilion. Our wedding day was perfect and we couldn't have asked more. Lydia was wonderful on the day, she helped me stay calm and had everything set out just like I asked. Martin did everything he could and more for us on the day - they are both a credit to your venue. 

We would like to say a massive thank you for everything you and your team have done for us on our wedding day. Everyone was so helpful and everything ran like clockwork. We couldn't have asked for a better day and we really appreciate it. Thank you.

Can I firstly start by thanking you and everyone at Lane End for a truly incredible wedding day! It was without question the greatest day of my life and I am sure Keeley would say the same. The weather was amazing and made for such a pleasant day outside and we couldn’t have picked a better venue to celebrate our day ­ it was perfect!

We would like to express our sincere thanks for the wonderful wedding of Richard and Kirsty. Every member of staff were attentive, professional, proactive and at all times friendly. The bar staff were exceptional and although we kept them extremely busy, each drink was served with a smile! Please also pass on our thanks to the Chef and his colleagues for the excellent food throughout the day. Every guest commented how delicious the food was. 

We had a delightful day. Thank you so much and we wish you every success in the future.
