I cannot begin to describe how beautiful Bridget and her team are. Smeetham was the first and only wedding venue that I visited. As soon as I walked into the Barn I fell in love. After meeting Bridget, I cancelled all other viewings.
We opted for the package which included catering by Splinters, a videographer and DJ. We also worked with Wilton & Flower for decorations. Splinters catering were incredibly flexible providing us with a BBQ menu with a great selection of canapés and wonderful desserts. They were so open to suggestions following our tasting and dedicated to getting the correct style and flavours. Sally reassured us that they would deliver and they delivered more than we could ever imagine. I was told by a guest that the jerk chicken was better than what they had in Jamaica! Chris, the videographer was kind and professional and was so helpful to our photographer who had not worked at the venue before directing him to good places for shots. Wilton & Flower helped us to put together a wonderful selection of decorations to hire. All of our guests loved the candelabras and personalised order of the day pallet. The lighting by Your Wedding Disco was excellent and brought the party together.
My family are Jamaican and my husband’s family are Ghanaian. Throughout planning the wedding the Smeetham team were so excited about the ways we would be incorporating our cultures and so supportive of all of our ideas. I cannot think of a single criticism or complaint in the way that the day was run or the team behind the venue. We had so many compliments on how effortlessly smooth the day was. My husband and I kept saying throughout the night that we wished we had been guests at the wedding because there were so many wonderful things to enjoy and take in.
Bridget, thank you for an amazing experience. We cannot express our gratitude for the love and effort you put into our day. We feel truly blessed to have found you all.
