Testimonials For The Old Hall Ely

The most perfect and wonderful dayOCTOBER, 2023

Hello to everyone at The Old Hall! We will be sending an official thank you but in the meantime Jamie and I wanted to say a HUGE Thank You for the most amazing day on Sunday. It’s hard to know where to start but we had the most perfect and wonderful day and that was thanks to the incredible venue, attentive and amazing staff and the delicious food and drink. From the moment we first viewed The Old Hall with Mrs Morbey we knew it was the place for us. Throughout the planning and up until the morning after the wedding itself we were looked after so well and made to feel so special. Special shout out to Tammy, Laura, Amy, Kirsty, the chefs, bar staff and food and beverage team who worked so hard on our big day. Our only criticism is it went far too fast and we want to do it all again!!! :-) Thank you so so much from the new Mr and Mrs Harker and hope to return in the future for a special occasion.

We can't thank you enough for making our day totally stress free and perfect! SEPTEMBER, 2023

We just wanted to thank you for everything you did to make our day perfect! I had comments from my bridal party and suppliers about how relaxed I was the morning of the wedding, and I have you to thank for that! Your efficiency, care and precision over the preparation of our day was outstanding from start to end! Little touches like while I was getting ready pastries and water were brought to our room, after our ceremony Stacie went to my room to get my flats and helped me put them on, during our cake cutting Antonia entertained two little girls - these little things really really mean alot! Not to mention the sublime food, we had so many comments about how delicious it was, I'm still drooling over the beautifully cooked pink lamb! We can't thank you enough for making our day totally stress free and perfect! I wish I could do it all over again (however let's hope not hey!) Thanks again!
