'We had such a great day on Saturday - Gildings Barn was perfect and everything we imagined and hoped for. The lights looked great in the main barn and everyone commented on the great atmosphere it created. Thank you for all your help in organising the event both in the run up and on the night. Richard you were great along with Hilary in ensuring the temperature was comfortable. We will certainly be recommending Gildings Barn to other couples.'

'To Penny & Richard, We just wanted to send you both a quick email to say thank you for all of your assistance in helping us in the organisation of our wedding. We had an amazing day and all of our guests absolutely loved Gildings. It couldn't have gone any better for us.
Thank you to both of you again.'

We can't thank Richard, Penny and Hilary enough for their help, both before and during our wedding. Gildings is beautiful - it was the perfect venue for us and we knew as soon as we visited that we wanted to have our reception there. The set up of the venue is great, with enough space in each barn so that even if it is bad weather no-one will get wet! Many of our guests complimented the barns, particularly how interesting and original the Threshing Barn is.
Hilary was very helpful when we visited the barns during our planning stages, and gave us some great ideas for decorations. We used Chris Moon for catering - the food was great and Chris and his team were amazing so we could properly relax and enjoy the day without worrying about anything. Thank you to all at Gildings!'

'We just wanted to say a huge thank you for our wedding at Gilding's barn earlier this year. We fell in love with the simplicity and charm of the barn the first time that we saw it and it really was the perfect wedding venue for us. The barn itself is lovely and the surroundings of the barn are so picturesque. We have some amazing photos to remind us of the fantastic day that was enjoyed by all.
Hilary - we would like to extend a special thank you for all your assistance in the setting up, clearing, generally being on hand to answer all our many queries and just making the day run so smoothly.
Chris Moon Catering - your help in the lead up to our big day and the day itself was truly invaluable. From our initial meeting you made us feel completely at ease and as soon as we had the tasting we knew we wanted you to be our caterer. All of our guests were so complimentary of the food that was served. We would highly recommend you to anyone and especially for any events at Gilding's, where your knowledge of what works and what doesn't really added to the overall smooth running of our day. We would also ask you to extend a massive thank you to Dawn and her team, who were amazing on the day. No one wanted for anything, everyone was so attentive and the addition of the bar in the evening was great.'

'Gildings Barn provided the absolutely perfect venue for our wedding - Penny and Hilary made everything so easy from start to finish, with lots of visits before the day to run through everything, prompt responses to emails (and all our questions) and always so friendly and accommodating. The wedding was the best day of our lives and the venue was central to this - a relaxed setting that we could completely put our own stamp on, with total flexibility in how we ran the day, enough space for our guests to spread out in and we were so lucky with the weather so that we could really enjoy Gildings at its best. It was absolutely idyllic. Lee and his team were fantastic - so attentive, so professional and so easy to work with - nothing being too much trouble. Lots of people had seconds, even thirds and we've had lots of compliments about how much people enjoyed the food - the best wedding food ever is definitely a compliment we've had a few times! All in all - we were delighted with everything.'

'Dear Penny and Richard, we had the most magical Christmas wedding that couldn't have been more special. Gildings is one of a kind and from the moment I saw it about 6 years ago I fell in love with it and I hoped that one day I might be able to have my wedding reception here. Thank you so much, we now have memories for a lifetime and you've both made that possible. The caterer Chris Moon exceeded expectations...so many guests commented on how delicious the food was. I wish I could have eaten more!! All in all, it was a once in a life time day in a beautiful and extremely special barn. Anyone else who gets married at Gildings is extremely lucky. Thank you. Love from Emma and Ollie'

'Thank you, thank you, for making our wedding day so special. Your barn was the only venue we needed to see and it created the most amazing day for us. Hilary was outstanding in her communication with us. You were both fantastic from start to finish. Allowing us to get married this year despite being fully booked. Your enthusiasm, Penny, whenever I asked a question was always such a lovely response and you seemed to genuinely care that we had the best day possible. We were very impressed with Lee and would recommend him and his team 100%. So professional and helpful to our guests and the food was amazing! Just wish we could do it all again!'
