From the moment we arrived at Pauntley we totally fell in love with it. It is so unique and like nothing else we had looked at. Melissa is so lovely and was really helpful throughout our planning - it always felt so personal. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly. It was also great to have Holly's help, particularly on the day for any last-minute jobs that needed sorting before or during the afternoon.

 We arrived on the Thursday night with our parents and had the main house from Friday lunchtime for the weekend. This worked really well for us as it meant we had lots of time to decorate the marquee and sort the final details before the big day so the build up was stress free and meant we could enjoy it! We honestly had the most amazing weekend and everyone said how magical Pauntley was. The house and its surroundings are simply beautiful and it is the perfect setting for a wedding.

 A huge thank you to Melissa and her family for welcoming us into their home and sharing their little slice of heaven - it will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and we can't wait to visit again.
