I can't speak highly enough of Alrewas Hayes as a venue and the entire team - and nor can any of our guests weeks on! The venue itself is absolutely beautiful. It is so private, gorgeous and grand, yet still has a real 'homely' feel to it, which we and our guests all fell in love with. The accommodation is stunning, there are endless photo backdrops, and the actual interior is incredible. The decor of the entire place is just amazing. One of our favourite parts of getting married here was our meal tasting night, which was put on like a big event in itself. The team couldn't do enough for us and the other couples, and the food was out of this world, as were the drinks. We had so many compliments on the day about the food - both day and night offerings, and the wines. On our actual wedding day, everything was perfect, and that's all down to the Alrewas team, but especially Emma, our wedding planner. Emma was an absolute godsend during the build up to the wedding, and she's just a genuinely lovely girl - I always enjoyed our chats! She had great suggestions for suppliers and ideas, and I really valued her opinion. On the wedding day, she ensured everything ran perfectly, and it was so reassuring knowing she was there and had it all under control. Tom also made both our meal tasting and wedding day so special, and his knowledge of wines is highly impressive - we were so grateful for all of his advice! Bonnie and Toby were also another big reason we fell in love with this venue, as their genuine care and passion for the events they hold is so evident - even down to being present and serving drinks at our wedding! We loved the homely/family vibe that really shone at Alrewas, and that stemmed from them entirely. We are so grateful to you all, and the rest of your fantastic team for giving us the best day of our lives - you're all incredible at what you do! Thank you a million times over! Lisa x
My husband, Ian, and I got married here on 22nd February 2018. We had a fantastic day! The staff couldn't do enough for us, the venue was beautiful and the food was amazing. Thank you to everyone at Alrewas Hayes and especially to Georgina who helped us to have the perfect day!
Thank you all very much for making our special day wonderful, words can't explain how much it means and meant to us both. It meant a lot to me to get married where my parents and grandparents got married.

My husband and I got married at Alrewas Hayes in March 2016. It was amazing! From planning to the day the staff were amazing especially Georgina. The food was divine the drinks were perfect and we cannot thank them enough. Bonnie and Toby went above and beyond to make our day so special and perfect as did the rest of the staff. I cannot recommend this stunning venue enough, it's perfect!!!
We got married at Alrewas Hayes August 2016. The day could not of gone any better! It is such a beautiful venue and we fell in love as soon as we saw it. All the Alrewas Hayes team were wonderful, especially Georgina. She was there from the beginning and put up with our indecisiveness. I am 100% glad that we chose Alrewas Hayes as our wedding venue!!
My husband and I got married at Alrewas Hayes on 24th September 2016. Alrewas Hayes was the first venue we went to view, after looking round at a few more venues we found no other compared and went ahead and booked. The venue itself is absolutely stunning, with beautiful settings outside as well as stunning interior. You could quite easily just turn up without any additional decoration and have a beautiful wedding. Since we booked our wedding in January 2015 there have been quite a few updates to the venue including more stunning bedrooms, refurbishment of the bar area, and make over of the marquee and courtyards. All of this has made the venue even better! The staff at the venue were very welcoming and went out of their way to help us. A special mention has to go to Georgina our wedding planner. She was an absolute star, always on the end of the phone for any questions that needed answering and she made sure our wedding day ran as smooth as possible which it absolutely did. The food here is outstanding and of very high quality. Everyone at our wedding really enjoyed all 3 courses as well as the evening food – the fishcakes for starters were amazing! All in all I can’t speak highly enough of Alrewas Hayes and for any couples wondering whether to book this venue for their wedding day I would say DO IT! I wish we could have our day all over again.
Wow! Amazing venue. Very luxurious. Bedrooms very nice and marquee/function space was also great and a lovely courtyard for when the sun shines. Food was top notch especially as the wedding was a big one at over 130 people. Toby and Bonnie - you are doing such a fantastic job at Alrewas Hayes. You and your team need to keep up the good work! Absolutely perfect place for a celebration. Everyone I spoke to at the wedding about the venue could not have spoken more highly. I cannot recommend this venue enough.
My husband and I had the most amazing day of our lives, thanks to the fabulous hard working, helpful team at Alrewas. Because of the team work and perfect planning from Toby and Bonnie ( our wedding planner) meant we didn't have a worry in the world and just enjoyed every moment of our day! Nothing was too big or small for Bonnie and she graciously put up with my perfectionist ways and considered every detail. Thankyou once again!!
Angelique and Daniel Lowrie

Lisa and Guy Renny
Just wanted to say a massive thank you to all of the team at Alrewas Hayes, especially Emma (our wedding planner) for our perfect wedding day on 1.9.16. Everything was perfect, the venue is stunning and we had lots of lovely compliments from guests all day. We can't thank you enough for making our dreams come true!!
What an absolutely fantastic day we had to celebrate our daughter and son in law's wedding. Nothing was too much trouble and everything ran like clock work. A venue to be considered by anyone planning a future wedding.
My husband and I got married back in March. It's was the BEST day of our life and all the thanks goes to the staff at Alrewas Hayes for making our day so special and run so smoothly. From the word go Georgina was amazing with all my plans and ideas from planning meetings to wine tasting to food tasting the whole experience was amazing! I'd like to also give a massive thank you to Bonnie and Toby for their hospitality. Bonnie was a godsend when I had some dress issues the day before the wedding and was on hand with prosecco and lots of comforting words, she even got her dress out just incase I needed it. The day was beyond our expectations and everyone commented on how helpful the staff were how STUNNING the venue is and how delicious the food was! Alrewas Hayes will always have a big place in our hearts, I just wish we could come back and do it all again next year!!!! 10/10 all round. Thank you
