What our couples said:
The day was indescribable. Actually was one of the best days of our lives. Nearly every guest said Hoghton tower was the finest and most unique venue they have ever seen, and they, like us, have been to countless weddings all over the country, and Europe in our case. The team ran the day brilliantly, with pinpoint precision and never too obtrusive. That was also commented on by our guests. From my and my wife's perspective you massively helped to make it the day it was, both with all your patient help during the several months of preparation for the wedding, and the day itself. And for that we thank you very much.

The venue is just outstanding but you made it so special. You calmed Ian and I down when we got flustered and you re-arranged everything perfectly as the weather was terrible. I can not thank the team enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives
