    Best. Day. Ever

    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.

    St Martin's Priory's reply:

    Hello Claire & Rowan,

    Thank you for such lovely feedback! We are so glad that you chose to share your special day with us and we too had the best day ever! You both were such a joy to work with and made the day feel so natural and fun.

    We loved the Colin the Caterpillar Bride & Groom cakes and the face masks and glow sticks for your guests. A truly remarkable couple with the rest of their lives to live happily ever after!

    To Mr & Mrs Rowan Tutt!

    Best wishes,

    St Martin's Priory Team
