Dear India, As parents of a bride, especially when you have just one daughter, we have always dreamt of a wedding day which would be so fondly remembered. Thanks to you and your team that dream was surpassed, and our little girls wedding day was the most memorable and joyous day of our lives. We simply cannot fault anything, and you and your team executed the days proceedings so, so professionally and beautifully, just thinking back to the day now makes us beam with happiness. Thank you! Thank you to you personally too for always being here for Charlotte and Darren and being so supportive throughout the build-up. Quite simply you and your team were outstanding on all levels, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Dear India, Annabel and Holly, Thank you so much for your support and patience in the run up to our big day. The day ran smoothly and we were so lucky to have such good weather too. The team behind the scenes were fantastic too and we were thrilled our day was part of such a slick operation! All the best for the rest of the season. xxx
Dear all at GSB, We wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for our wedding in April (and the lead up to it!) It was so special, and we are so grateful for all that you did.
To India and the rest of the Gate Street Team, What a journey and what a day! Thank you so much for putting up with our questions, helping us through planning a wedding in a pandemic, providing us with the venue of our dreams and being thoughtful, helpful and going the extra mile on the day itself. We will never forget the experience we had and the memories that we made at Gate Street and absolutely everyone had a blast and loved the relaxed and beautiful surroundings. I know how busy things were for you all this year so thank you for making us feel special and for all the amazing work!
A huge thank you from both of us for the most amazing day on Saturday. From our first visit to the barn, we fell in love and knew it was the place we wanted to get married. From that first meeting until last Saturday you have all been amazing. My stupid questions being answered efficiently and the clear timelines made it really easy and the day worked like clock work. Nothing was too much bother for you and for that we are extremely grateful. A dream team, incredible venue and the best day of our lives. Thank you so much. We will never forget our day at Gate Street Barn
We just wanted to write and say a huge ‘thank you’ to you and your very helpful, smiley and friendly staff for making our daughter, Lucy Hollister’s wedding to Jack such a fantastic day. The whole wedding was run seamlessly and with smiles all round from staff all day. Everything was perfect, including the overnight stay in the house, with lovely towels and beautiful bedding – then the amazing breakfast in the morning. So, thanks all round from a very grateful mum and dad x
To all of you at Gate Street Barn, We cannot thank you all enough for helping us to have the most amazing wedding day. From the first time we visited your venue, to the day after our wedding, you were all so helpful and supportive. The venue is stunning, the staff are brilliant and we wish we could do the day all over again!
Dear India & the GSB team, we wanted to say a huge thank you for making our wedding day so special. From the moment we stepped foot in The Barn, we knew it was where we would become husband & wife. It was a building site as you had just begun work on the Orangery, but the location, feel of the place and longhorn residents had us sold! The team were always on hand to answer questions and on the day itself, led by India, was run with such professionalism, but also a very personal touch. We really can’t thank you enough and hope to be able to visit again one day.
Thank you for being the wedding venue of our dreams – we could not have asked for more (we even got blue skies in August!!) Our pictures are absolutely unreal and a massive part of that is due to your stunning venue. Some of our friends are so angry they can’t get married at GSB now – sorry! Your 10/10 communication and support made our day. Thanks again!
