The reading room is such a gorgeous venue and the gardens are spectacular! It provides such an intimate setting for your big day & you get so many beautiful photo opportunities. Jo and Simon are so amazing and help you out throughout the process – thank you both so much for all your help and making our day so special. We had the perfect day and would definitely recommend The Reading room for anyone thinking about having your wedding here.
We would like to start by saying a massive thank you to Jo and Simon for helping to make our day just perfect from start to finish. Jo and Simon’s communication was just faultless. They were always on hand to answer any questions and responded straight away, they listened to what we wanted on our big day and how we wanted it to run and were constantly working in the background throughout our day ensuring it went as smoothly as possible. The venue is just absolutely stunning inside and out, no matter what the season it is just beautiful. This venue really is a hidden gem and Jo and Simon have worked so hard to make this venue just perfect for anyone’s big day. Being a same sex couple, we are always worried about what people may think of us but, Jo and Simon did not treat us any differently or make us feel uncomfortable at all, they really were both amazing! The bar staff were organised through Jo and Simon and they were outstanding! They were constantly walking around collecting glasses, restocking the fridge and making sure that no guest went thirsty. They always had a smile on their faces and really were a credit to Jo and Simon. Thank you to Jo and Simon for making our wedding day a day that we will NEVER forget and we wish we could do it all over again! It really was the BEST day EVER.
Once we'd first looked around the Reading Room no other venue we looked at compared.
Jo and Simon were always on hand to answer any questions we had during the lead up to our wedding day and were so helpful throughout the whole process, especially with all the uncertainty surrounding Covid.
We've had so many comments on the wedding day itself and since about how great the venue is and I wouldn't think twice about recommending it to anyone else thinking about having their wedding here!
Joe and I just wanted express a belated thanks to Jo and Simon for all the support they gave us through such unusual and stressful times. We married in June and we had the most perfect day and we both felt so relaxed and happy. It could not have gone any better. The venue is so perfect and the gardens are always stunning throughout the seasons we visited. We cannot express how grateful we are and how pleased we are to have chosen to have our special day at the reading room.
We would like to say a huge thank you to Simon and Jo for helping to make our day so special. Bearing in mind the challenges we and they faced with restrictions, our day couldn't have gone any better. The venue, inside and out, is stunning. We fell in love with it on the first visit. From first contact, Simon and Jo were always on hand to answer any questions and provide reassurance, nothing was too much trouble. On our wedding day, they were quietly working in the background making sure the day went without a hiccup. Amazing day, wonderful venue and fantastic hosts. Can we do it all again please?!
o & Simon made it possible for us to just have the best wedding day.
After months of worry that we would need to cancel or greatly amend, Jo & Simon were brilliant throughout. We had the absolute perfect day, of which Jo & Simon’s seamless support made it all possible. As Adam has (frequently!) commented since, you never noticed Jo & Simon there, but they were always there if you needed. The venue is perfect, our guests were wowed by it and we just have the most amazing memories to cherish forever.
We can’t thank you both enough for helping us to create the most amazing day! We really couldn’t have wished for a better setting to get married. We were originally meant to be having our wedding abroad in 2020, but when it got cancelled we were naturally devastated and had to start again in the UK. We never thought we would be able to find what we were looking for, then we discovered “The Reading Room” The most stunning grounds and with 27c on the day we really did feel like we had gone abroad. Thank you once again for helping us throughout what has been a very stressful time and keeping us calm on the morning. It really was a perfect day!
Firstly, Jo and Simon, Becky and I can’t thank you enough for everything you have helped us with over the last two years, you held our hand every step of the way guiding us through all the heartache of postponing our original wedding in 2020, the wait was worth it as you reassured us every time we spoke.
We visited The Reading Room back in 2019 after seeing a lot of venues to build our wedding around, once we had visited and met Jo we looked no further, we had found our dream venue!
Our wedding day came this June and despite having reduced guest numbers of 30 we had our dream day and The Reading Room played a huge part in that, the setting, the photos, the ceremony every part of our day had this place as it’s beautiful backdrop.
To any couple looking to book, you will never regret it!
Not only is the venue and grounds beautiful, but Jo and Simon, are truly exceptional. Nothing is too much trouble, they have been excellent in helping us to not feel stressed despite the wedding being postponed twice. Having now had our wedding at The Reading Room, I would not hesitate to recommend it as a fantastic wedding venue.
Magical, beautiful, perfect. We could go on for years talking about how incredible the Reading Room is. The venue is stunning and so perfectly put together, in the most stunning setting, me and my Husband fell in love with the venue as soon as we arrived. We always knew we wanted to get married at the Reading Room but what really makes the venue so so special is Simon and Jo. The love Simon and Jo have for their wonderful venue is so clear and it makes you feel so special to be apart of such a special place, as soon as we met them both we knew we had made the right decision in choosing the Reading Room as our venue. Unfortunately due to lockdown our orginal date in April could not go ahead, but we were able to marry 4.11.20, the day before lockdown, the support and guidance we received from Jo and Simon through rescheduling our wedding was incredible and we honestly could not have done it without them. Simon and Jo made our day truly perfect and could not have done more to help, we are lucky enough to be celebrating again with our reception next year, and it will be incredible to be at the Reading Room again but this time as husband and wife Thank you again for everything Mr and Mrs Titchiner xxx
