"Dear Chris, what a mad few days, but we are on our first day of honeymoon and starting to relax so we are taking this moment to thank you!! 

 You were out of this world on our wedding day!! Well actually it’s been really smooth throughout! Your chilled approach to everything didn’t get un-noticed by everyone! I felt so calm because I just knew it was all being taken care of and you would do us proud! I can honestly say I have never been to a wedding where everything went as smooth as ours did, yes we had good weather & yes it’s a beautiful venue so that helps but it’s the little things like you just floating around not being intrusive and keeping everything going without us even noticing! 

The next morning when we collected everything it was so respectfully packed away and we appreciate the long hours you put in! 

All the staff were friendly and professional, the guests loved the food!! 

 So basically thankyou!! You smashed it and the wedding was literally everything and more"

Tara & Ashley - 1st October 2021 - The Tythe Barn


“Hi Georgia, well what can I say other than just a massive thank you. The work you did to make our day so special was wonderful. The venue looked stunning, the food was divine and the atmosphere from your staff was calming which in turn made us calm. We had the most wonderful day. Thank you so much.”

“Wow!! Where do we start?! We cannot thank you enough for such an unbelievably wonderful day. Thank you, Jake, for being so organised, accommodating, kind, calm, efficient, reassuring and fun. Every part of the day was brilliant, thanks to you and your super team. 

The grounds were stunning, the food delicious, and everything was so considered - it really couldn’t have gone any better.”

     “Hi Jake, Richard and I have just got back from our honeymoon and just wanted to thank you for all of your help and support on our wedding day. We honestly had the best day of our lives and everyone was so complementary of the venue, the food, and the relaxed feel of the day - a real credit to you and your team. So, we just wanted to say the biggest thanks in the world for making it everything we could ever have hoped for!”

 “Good afternoon Georgia, Thank you so much for everything, the day went amazing and ran so smoothly. All the guests commented on how lovely the food, venue and the service was.” 

 Ashleigh and John – 16th September 2021 – The Tythe Barn


  “Hi Georgia, sorry this is wayyyyyy overdue but thank you so so so much for everything you did on our wedding day! Honestly it was better than we could have ever imagined and you made everything so easy for us we didn’t have to think about any of the details once we were there.

Everyone has commented how amazing the day was - the venue and the food especially was a massive hit with all our guests! Seriously, it was just perfect!!

Just one random question, the girl who had the GF Vegan food said there was a cheese on her starter that she really enjoyed and has asked if I could find out what it was? If you could ask your chefs to see if they can remember so I can let her know that would be great!

Stacey and Joe – 12th September 2021 – The Tythe Barn


“Hey Gabby, Yay, yay, yay! 

Thank you so much - what a day it was! We totally and utterly loved it from start to finish so a HUGE thank you to you and your team. The pebbles seemed to have gone down a storm and everyone seemed so genuinely touched by the effort and little descriptions on the name cards. 

 Wishing you guys a brilliant rest of year and thanks again”

Jon and Vic – 4th September 2021 – The Watermill


“Thank you SO much Gabby for everything you did for us on our wedding day!! You have been an absolute star throughout the final stages of our wedding planning. We had such confidence in you just from emailing, but when we met you the day before the wedding we knew we were in the best hands.

 We had the most amazing day and your endless hard work throughout the entire wedding made this happen. You (and your staff) were simply outstanding. Your smiley, calm and professional approach to your job is a real asset to Priston Mill and we couldn’t have wished for anything more from you, a truly fantastic Event Manager!!!

The venue looked amazing and exactly as we had pictured it, our decorations were set up perfectly, we really appreciate your efforts in the morning! A big thanks also for sorting the cake when it eventually arrived. We had no idea it was being set up, but when we did see it we were so impressed it had just happened with no interruption to our day.

Thank you once again!!”

Mr and Mrs Grace – 20th August 2021 – The Tythe Barn


“To all of the staff at Priston Mill, we just wanted to say the biggest thank you for making our wedding day the best day ever! We feel so lucky that with all the restrictions, it meant that we ended up having our wedding there.

 The venue looked amazing and the service we received can’t be faulted. All the guests commented on the food, it was incredible and we were so amazed by how our guests with dietary requirements were catered for.

A special thank you to Chris, everything ran so smoothly on the day and it was so well organised, we were able to relax and soak in the day.

Once again thank you all so much and we really hope we get the chance to come to another wedding in the future".

Sean and Louise Stephens – 16th August 2021 – The Tythe Barn


“Hi Gabby, thank you so much for making our wedding day so special. We've had endless compliments about your beautiful venue, the food and yourself!!! Of course, as soon as we get them I will send them over to you. 

 Thanks again for all your efforts, you're the BEST!” 

Lara and George – 13th August 2021 – The Tythe Barn


  “Hi Georgia, thank you so much for all your help for our wedding, it was a completely perfect day! Thank you for making everything run so smoothly and perfectly, it will be a day that we will cherish forever and thank you for making it so perfect! 

 We wish you all the best continuing to manage magical weddings :) 

 Thank you again!” 

 Jo and Tom (the new Mr and Mrs Reid!) – 30th July 2021


“Dear Chris, Jake, Gabby and the entire team,

Thank you so much for everything you did to make our wedding so special. The two and half year journey we went on with you was made into a serene experience through your kindness, professionalism, and relaxed nature. Thank you guiding us through not only our wedding, but the unexpected and unpredictable year that proceeded it. Chris and Jake – thank you for everything you did on the day. We are so happy we chose Priston Mill as a backdrop for our marriage and will never forget you and everything you did for us.”

 Sarah & John – 26th June 2021 – The Tythe Barn


Thank you so much for helping us make our wedding day the best day of our lives! We fell in love with Priston Mill nearly 2 years before we got married! It is a perfect place if you want to a beautiful setting, with high ceilings and amazing features! Jake and the team did everything they could to make our day go perfectly and we cannot thank them enough! Everyone had a great day and they didn’t stop complimenting the stuning wedding venue and food!  I wish we could do it all again!! 

Vicki Thomas & Ryan Higgins - Bride & Groom - 29th December 2019 - The Tythe Barn


"Thank you for the most phenomenal wedding day! Kim was fantastic during all the organisation, her calm manor ensured we worried about nothing, even responding to emails the night/morning before at 1am!! We met Jake on the day and can not thank him enough, he was fantastic and ensured the day was faultless. We were concerned that because you manage weddings everyday that it would not feel very personal, but how wrong we were! You made sure no question was too silly and that our day was so special and important. We opted for the 'to dine' menu option and the food was amazing, all our guests commented on how great it was. We can not thank you all enough, especially Jake and Kim. Can we do it all again?!"

Mr & Mrs Forrest - Bride & Groom - 10th August 2019 - The Tythe Barn


"Thank you so much for the best day of our lives. The day went seamlessly and everyone commented on how beautiful the wedding venue was, and how stunning the food was especially the gravy! We couldn’t have done it without you and meeting Chris for the first time this week he went above and beyond and couldn’t do enough for us . Thank you both it was truly epic. xx"

Mr & Mrs Simmonds - Bride & Groom - 23rd July 2019 - The Tythe Barn


"Thank you so much for organising and managing the day of our wedding. From the venue, the food, the setup and overall running of the day, it was truly stunning and we are so very grateful! The support and guidance you gave us and the pressure you took off us was incredibly helpful. Thanks again!"

Leanne & Luke - Bride & Groom - 28th June 2019 - The Tythe Barn


"Thank you so much to yourself, and all of the staff at Priston Mill in Bath, we had a really fantastic day! Its been a bit of a whirlwind couple of weeks. Everyone was so friendly and professional and helped our day run smoothly."

Mr & Mrs Hill - Bride & Groom - 15th June 2019 - The Watermill


"Jake we just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did on our wedding day (13/06/2019) Everything was amazing and was absolutely perfect. Ben and I are still singing your praises because you made the day so effortless and enjoyable. Your relaxed approach was just what we wanted and it was so nice not be to be rushed at any point of the day/night. Thank you for being patient with the guests and ourselves (especially after people have had drinks!) We both recognise you manage weddings day in, day out you still made us feel like our day was as special as the last. That really went a long way with us both and are so pleased you were with us all day. You are a credit to Priston Mill and we can't thank you enough for everything you did to make sure our day ran smoothly. The staff on day were also outstanding and worked so hard. Thank you again & Best Wishes"

Mr & Mrs Coltman- Bride & Groom - 13th June 2019 - The Watermill


"Bella and I had our wedding at Priston Mill this Saturday just gone. We’d really like to express our sincere gratitude to all of the staff there and to everyone involved. From the bar staff to the kitchen. And everybody in between. The day was absolutely flawless. The weather was beautiful, everything ran smoothly and to schedule. The staff were very helpful throughout the whole day and night. The food was excellent. The wine was lovely. It was just a perfect day. We had many guests complementing how beautiful everything was and what a stunning venue it was. We looked at many different wedding venues in Bath before deciding to go with Priston Mill and based on how well everything went, we were both so happy and it confirmed with us that we had 100% chosen the right venue. We would be very happy to recommend Priston Mill to anyone. Last but not least, I would like to say a very big thank you to Jake. He was just excellent. Nothing was too much trouble and he made sure everything ran smoothly. He really is a credit to Priston Mill and I am very thankful that he was involved in our big day."

Mr & Mrs Sivyer - Bride & Groom - 22nd June 2019 - The Tythe Barn


"Dear Olly, Jake, Paul, catering and waiting staff and all the team, We just wanted to say a very overdue THANK YOU for all your help and hard work that helped to make our wedding day (5 months ago yesterday) so amazing! We loved every minute of it and are so grateful to you all. At every stage before and during the day your attentiveness to detail, calmness, kindness, knowledge and experience was second to none - thank you. We have spent much of our married life, so far, in a number of different places busily sorting out all sorts of things but are now coming into land in Bath!  The other evening we walked through the fields near Priston Mill and saw the Mill in the distance.  It was a  beautiful summer's evening and a celebration was in full swing. It was a lovely sight, we stood together reminisced and gave thanks and prayed for you all and those celebrating that evening 🙂. One of the many things that blessed us on the day was the joy, warmth and helpfulness of the waiting staff.  Many of our guests commented on this too along with how delicious the food was as well as the amazing cheese. One of our friends sent us a video of our first dance and we smile each time we watch it as we can see a couple of waitresses dancing on the mezzanine, entering in to the spirit of the evening - delightful! Thanks again."

Tom and Elizabeth Riley - Bride & Groom - 22nd February 2019 - The Tythe Barn


“My daughter got married on the 21st of December 2018 at the Tythe Barn. Sammy and George’s wedding. From the very first meeting looking around the gorgeous countryside wedding venue to our last dance on the day, was truly the most magical, well organised and beautiful time we all had. With a massive thank you to Kim and all the team on the day, nothing was too much trouble, everything ran perfectly, Kim felt like part of the family, so kind, considerate and helpful. The food was amazing, even catering for all dietary requirements. Everything was packed into our van after we left on the day, so all we needed to do the day after the wedding was pick up the van, completely stress free. The venue is so beautiful, a wonderful setting for a winter wonderland. Can’t believe how beautiful the barn can be changed from the ceremony to the wedding breakfast and then to the evening entertainment space. My daughter said that ‘it was the best day of her life’.”

Mr and Mrs Chivers, Parents of the Bride – 21st December 2018 – The Tythe Barn


 “We both want to express our biggest thanks for you and your team have done for us on our wedding day! It was a truly magical day and we had been blow away by the incredible food, service, attention to detail- just everything!”

 Mr and Mrs Gaylard – 25th October 2018 – The Tythe Barn


 “Joe and I just wanted to send you a quick email to say thank you for everything on Sunday!

You and your whole team were absolutely amazing! From fixing Joe's cufflink to giving our Page Boys a pep talk before they walked down the aisle ☺️.  The day was so perfect and we can't thank you enough for the seamless organisation! Literally have so much praise for you all and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you!!

 Also a massive thanks to Kim and anyone else who did all the behind the scenes stuff! You guys are the best!!!”

Mr and Mrs Scanlon-Smith – 23rd September 2018 - The Watermill


  “Me and Adam just wanted to give our biggest thanks and gratitude to you and Meg and all the staff at Priston Mill in Bath for our amazing day last week!

We could not have asked for a better day...everything flowed perfectly and although went so quickly as they warn you, we enjoyed every single bit all helped along by the amazing staff!

I hope we get to come back some day or maybe pop by just to relive it all!”

Mr and Mrs Jeanes – 6th September 2018 – The Tythe Barn


 “I just wanted to formally thank you all for such a wonderful day on 1st September, for our wedding at the Watermill wedding venue.

We've only just started to come back down to earth after living in the clouds after such a magical and perfect day - it truly could not have been better! We are so happy to have picked what we felt was the most beautiful of venues, it was absolutely stunning.

Kim - although we didn't end up having you with us on the day, you were fantastic in dealing with our planning & our [endless!] questions and concerns on the last minute preparations.

And now to Jake - what an absolute hero! He just made our day so effortless. Everyone commented at how well everything just seemed to flow. The family members and wedding party members who spoke to Jake throughout the day all said just how lovely and relaxing he was to be around and Anthony & I certainly felt the same. I honestly think he has magic powers as whenever I started to say "Where is Jake..." - there he appeared!! I hope I wasn't too much of a demanding bride, but if I was, you didn't make me feel like it at all - nothing was too much to ask. So thank you so much for helping make our special day so perfect.

Obviously there are lots more people we want to thank behind the scenes as well - all the staff present on the day were just wonderful. You have an amazing team who clearly work extremely hard! And massive thanks to the chefs, because the food was absolutely out of this world, everyone has said how delicious it was and many people have commented that it was the best wedding food they've ever had!!”

Mr and Mrs Hamilton – 1st September 2018 – The Watermill


“As a guest of this wedding I would like to say how impressed I was with the whole day, everything ran smoothly and to a very high standard. All the staff were helpful and polite, nothing being to much trouble. Having worked in the wedding venue industry for many years I know how much hard work is involved and how hard everybody needs to work to make the day a success. We had a fantastic day along with all the other guests. We would like to thank you again for a wonderful day and please pass on our appreciation to all your members of staff that worked that day.”

Mr and Mrs Giles - 30th August 2018 – The Tythe Barn


  “Ash and I held our wedding reception in the Watermill venue on Thursday 26th July 2018, and we just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to you all for helping us make our day so perfect and run so smoothly.  Our venue was decorated beautifully and all of your staff were so polite and kind (even though it was the hottest day so far!). Thank you so much!”

Mr and Mrs Tugwell – 26th July 2018 – The Watermill


“Dear Kim and Victoria (and extended to all other staff, servers and kitchen crew at Priston Mill in Bath),

We have now returned home after our lovely minimoon break and wanted to send you the biggest THANK YOU for all of your amazing work for our wedding on 12th July. We thought the whole day from the ceremony to the meal to the celebrations went perfectly and was just how we imagined.

Even though that unexpected patch of rain meant we couldn't get married outside, we didn't even mind at all since everything was so splendid. Matthew was amazed by your efficiency but also your empathy with moving the ceremony inside as it really meant a lot to us. However, within a very short time span, everything was relocated perfectly and when I arrived I had no inkling of the frenzied activity that had taken place. Everything was calm and relaxing and quite frankly exactly what I needed.

In fact, all day yourself and all your staff were immensely calm and reassuring at every turn and this particularly helped me as I am (as you may have noticed) a complete control freak but also usually the one in charge of large work/family/social events, so it was amazing for me not only to see everything exactly as it should be but also to trust yourself and your staff to deal with any issues or questions that came up so that I could actually relax and enjoy our wonderful day. In fact, many of our friends commented their surprise at how calm and relaxed I was and this is entirely down to your efforts and professionalism.

We were also blown away by the quality and quantity of food. Everything was delicious and we have had numerous compliments, including from those with extra dietary requirements which really means a lot to us as it meant our friends and family could relax and enjoy the day whilst feeling included. We can't remember ever being quite so well fed at a large catering event. 

As you know, we ran off to our honeymoon suite at 11.30pm but all of our wedding party who were left behind have commended the amazing speed and efficiency with which all your staff helped to clean, tidy and pack up our (extensive!) decorations. We were shocked to hear that they were hanging about waiting for their booked taxis home as everything was done in super quick time.

We also received your note and cheque in the post, which is amazing and a welcome boost to our honeymoon fund to go to Italy next Spring! We heard from guests that you put opened wine on the bar which was totally unexpected but we really appreciate as many evening guests were able to also have a glass or two on us. With the greatest of thanks!”

Mr and Mrs Jackson-Jones – 12th July 2018 – The Tythe Barn & The Watermill


 “Thank you so much for everything you did at our wedding on Saturday to make it run so smoothly. We had the most amazing day that was perfect in every way! Many thanks.”

 Mr and Mrs Cornock – 7th July 2018 – The Watermill


“Firstly a huge, huge thank you to you and the team for making our big day so amazing.  The wedding venue looked beautiful, the food was excellent (our guests were raving about it), and every single member of your team were helpful, friendly and professional.  We felt you did a fantastic job and the Best Men and Bridesmaids commented on how easy you made their lives on the day. We are especially appreciative of your assistance when the coach didn't arrive. We really cannot speak highly enough of the job you did.”

Mr and Mrs Loizou – 28th June 2018 – The Tythe Barn


 “We just wanted to drop you a line to say a belated thank you to you and everyone else at Priston Mill who made our wedding day so special!

Our guests had very nice things to say about the venue, staff and food. The vegetarian food in particular went down a treat! I think all the guests who had the veggie main course made a point of commenting on how great it was so massive thanks to the kitchen team for taking on our request of mushroom wellington and delivering brilliantly.

A big, big thank you to you especially though, for everything that you did in the lead up to the day and on the day itself. Massive thanks!”

Mr and Mrs Wood – 24th June 2018 – The Watermill


 “We just wanted to send a belated thank you message to you, Olly and your team for an amazing wedding day on the 8th. We really couldn't have asked for a better day and Olly and the team were so helpful and efficient, everything was done with so much ease. Thank you for making our day so amazing!”

Mr and Mrs Kilby – 8th June 2018 – The Tythe Barn


 “Hi Paul, we wanted to say the biggest thank you we could. You were an absolute superstar, I’ve no idea how we would have done it without you. You made the day run so smoothly and we can’t thank you enough for how hard you were clearly working all night!!”

Mr and Mrs Roberts – 3rd February 2018 – The Watermill
