Sophie and Joe – 17th September

Thank you for a wonderful day in a beautiful place! It was exactly what we wanted – a relaxed, festival atmosphere, outside with swing ball, fire pits and 2/3 of our guests camping overnight! Bellissimo bent over backwards to help us both in the run up to the wedding and on the day, and we can’t thank Melanie and Julia enough – they were a pleasure to work with and made planning our wedding a breeze! xx

Nicky and Matt – 13th August

Absolutely perfect!!! We wanted a festival wedding, all about the company, the scenery & the music. We had a vision and Wilkswood was the perfect venue. We didn’t make it easy for them, what with the multiple bands among other things, but we got the relaxed, chilled vibe we were aiming for. Everyone had a great time and we can’t thank all the staff at Bellissimo / Wilkswood Wedding Venue (especially the wonderful Melanie) enough. Thank you!! Wouldn’t change a thing! X
