"Our wedding day was simply perfect. I know that must sound like a cliché, but we cannot think of any other way to describe it that does the day justice!
When we started planning our day, we thought hard about the type of wedding we wanted and how we wanted our guests to feel. The most important thing for us was that our guests enjoyed themselves! We wanted it to feel like a family gathering and a real celebration, and to keep things relaxed and informal.
We danced the night away with our family and friends, in fact I don’t think I stopped dancing all night! We ended our evening with just a few family members and close friends, sat outside under the stars sipping fizz and eating wedding cake, wrapped up in blankets, and it was simply perfect.
We planned our wedding in just under 10 weeks, due to receiving some sad news about my (Bride) mum’s health. When we got engaged on 17th April 2019, our plan was to get married in September 2020, but unfortunately when we knew my mum wouldn’t make it to then there was no question but to bring the wedding forward. Unfortunately however, my mum didn’t make the wedding, and sadly passed away 3 weeks before. Whilst it was extremely sad, and not having her by my side on the day was one of the hardest things I’ve done, I took comfort in the fact that she’d been to every venue appointment, met with my caterers, florists and helped my pick out my dress.
As you can imagine this did have some bearing on the wedding day, but we were keen to ensure that the day remained a celebration; a celebration of our love for each other, a celebration for the love we had for all our friends and family and to celebrate the amazing woman who was the Mother of the Bride.
From the moment we woke up on the day to the moment we retired to our honeymoon suite we didn’t stop smiling, our day was filled with many emotions, but the overwhelming one was happiness. Looking at the photos and our video, our day was filled with love, laughter and silly dancing! And that was perfect for us."

Feedback on Aswarby Rectory
Aswarby Rectory is a fine jewel to be found. Owners, Richard and Donna, have done a truly amazing job refurbishing a characterful wedding venue and I was excited that my daughter’s wedding was the first to be held at the venue. Not only is the venue overflowing with character, being set in beautiful grounds; but what made our day was the attention to detail and the genuine care and concern shown by them to make sure every detail was perfect. It’s all too easy for the owners of wedding venues to be unattached and distant, but Richard and Donna embraced our day and went out of their way to make sure everything was as fantastic as it could be. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Aswarby Rectory as a perfect wedding venue.
We were thrilled with how everything went, thank you so much for everything. The whole day was just perfect and everyone is still talking about the day - it’s all quite sad that it’s all over after all the months of planning. The venue is simply stunning, enhanced by the most gracious, welcoming and humble hosts. We really couldn’t have asked for more!
