We married at the Cloisters on 14th May 2019. Although it looks a little different without the old pepper tree, it is still a beautiful, serene place for a wedding.

To be honest I was a wee bit disappointed in the cloisters. There was a couple who’d just got married which was nice to see. We couldn’t get into the church as there was another wedding taking place in there.

They were renovating the cloister during our visit but once done this will be worth a quick visit. A quiet, cool, reflective space. The church too is of interest and worth popping into. Nothing special copared to many European churches but shouldn't be missed. This...More

We married at the Cloisters on 14th May 2019. I can confirm that there are no steps in the Cloisters that need to be negotiated during a wedding. The only stairs are up to the room that is used as an art gallery. The... More

We are marrying there in just over 2 weeks. We are a little nervous about how the Cloisters look, but we are determined to enjoy our ceremony. The stonework is stunning, and we are hoping the plants will have some flowers... More
