I had my hair done at The Spa at Prested Hall by Jade. I loved my hair so much i sent her a message thanking her. She was so easy to get on with and be around. i had a trial beforehand and in the end had a curled style which took about 45 minutes to do on the day and it looked really professional.

My self and my husband got married here on the 30/08/15 we had a perfect day! Joanne (our events manager) made sure everything was how we wanted it and took the stress away, right from the planning to the big day. Anything I emailed was always answered on that same day and anything we asked for was done. The food was lovely (especially the pecan pie!!) lovely grounds for photos, marquee was perfect size for all our guests. We made full use of the whole of prested hall, all our elderly guests sat in the library during the reception as it was quieter, we had a photo booth in one room and a DJ and dance floor in the other room. The bedrooms were of very high standard and the breakfast the next day was also very good! All the staff did a fantastic job. I would highly reccomend prested hall for anyone's wedding day, we couldn't of asked for a better day. Thank you!

We got married on 01/09/15, Jill our events manager was absolutely fantastic, nothing was to much trouble, she went out of her way to ensure everything was perfect for us, even working with me on her day off to help with last minute preparations! The day itself was amazing, Jill and the team was truly outstanding, food, timings, drinks, everything brilliant, could not have wished for a more perfect day. Thank you all so much and sorry the review has taken a while to be written!
