I attended a wedding albeit a small one with 20 guests, the sat nav took us straight to the venue. The location was picture perfect, the interiors are simply breathtaking. The wedding took place in the sitting room, we had the run of the abbey and was taken around it and to the bedrooms that can be hired as part of a wedding package. We had cakes and champagne, we were not hurried out but as they close the gate,they offered the groom the keyfob so guests could stay.
The only areas for improvement would be the parking which is not signposted and before the wedding, the guests were asked to wait in the kitchen but we had no other instruction. Being the last to arrive 15 minutes before the allocated time we were kept hanging around. Everyone remained standing and too fearful to move or touch anything. I would suggest that it might be an opportune time to have something for people to look at to explain the history, the venue, the opportunities and the future to encourage people to return and to talk about it.
The bride and groom had a great time as did I and my fellow guests.
I am absolutely thrilled that you are keeping a wonderful historic venue in use and protected for the future. Good luck with your plans, I do hope to visit again from Felixtowe Suffolk, especially as my neice said she would like to get married there herself one day!
