Clients Says

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!

We got married on the 2nd May 2015 at Wilkswood farm and had the most perfect day, the Marquee looked beautiful with all the bunting and fairy lights, everyone commented on how nice it was, and we were particularly impressed with the clear walls put up in the chill-out tent so we could take in the gorgeous views even when inside, also a huge thankyou to Camelot Marquees who also put up bell tents for us and the guests to sleep in, it was the perfect way to finish our big day, thankyou to the whole team
