From the moment we pulled up to The Compasses we immediately fell in love. The beautiful surroundings and character building was just what we wanted. When we stepped inside, all our dreams came true. I’m not a flower type girl, so knew I wouldn’t be spending money on wedding flowers, but believe me when I say, this venue does not need it. It’s absolutely stunning. The hard wood floors, shabby chic country decor and ample airy space created the laid back but beautiful vision of our wedding we always wanted. And that was before meeting the team! Upon meeting Paul we were sold. A charismatic & knowledgable gentleman who could not do enough to see that we were both happy. And someone who clearly loves his job – and it shows! He listened intently to all of our (somewhat crazy…) ideas and nothing was too much trouble. Both Paul and the lovely Claire kept in touch from booking until D-Day, making sure no stone was left unturned. Our wedding day arrived and Paul was there to run proceedings. From making a jittery groom calm, to settling a giggling group of Bridesmaids down… From the off he was extremely professional, friendly & as excited about our day as we were. The day went perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for more. All our decor was set up expertly, the crew were well informed, polite and courteous, and the day ran without a single hitch. The food was incredible! The chef was constantly on hand to ensure enough was prepared and all was to everyone’s liking. We have had nothing but amazing compliments regarding the venue, staff and the amazing food. We honestly couldn’t be happier. Thank you from the bottom of our newlywed hearts.
