Best. Day. Ever
Sent on 01/08/2018
Right from our first visit we knew St Martin's Priory was the perfect venue for us. The rooms are beautiful and give a real feeling for the history of Canterbury. The gardens are amazing, perfect for entertaining and the all-important pictures. We really were blown away from our first visit. Alessandro and his team are great and made it so easy to make the day our own.
They liaised with all of our suppliers and everything went off without a hitch.... well, at least one hitch but that was the point in us being there! We were able to have the wedding just as we had imagined, thanks to the team at St Martin’s Priory, who accommodated our very laid back and not so traditional ideas for the day. It was the best day ever, and we just want to go back and do it all again, and we honestly would not change a thing! Without a doubt we highly recommend the venue and the team for any special occasions.
