If you are looking for an intimate wedding venue that is something unique and special - look no further. We still have guests telling us that they would like to have a wedding like ours, and Flaxmere house was a big part of that. The food was absolutely divine, there was so much care and attention put into it - they will never let you down. If you are having a wedding we highly recommend taking the venue for a few days.

To say the least, this year has been super challenging let alone planning for a wedding that had already been postponed due to COVID. Vanessa and her team supported us, providing that extra personal touch along the way. The food was glorious and the accommodation was above our expectations. If I could recommend one thing for the bride to be, that would be to stay the night before. This certainly helped ease my nerves and meant I could spend quality time with my daughter and mum before the big day. We will forever be grateful to Vanessa and her team and can not recommend Flaxmere enough for any future brides.

We would have never in a million years thought that we as gay men, could ever be married – and yet here we are. Time has a way of revealing possibilities beyond our wildest dreams.
Flaxmere House has great surroundings and a wonderful peacefulness to it – we felt right at home as it was so warm and inviting. Our wedding theme was tropical and relaxed which reflects the way we are and how our family and friends know us. The décor was simple with a touch of elegance and really brought everything together on the day. Overall the actual act of getting married – saying our vows in front of those that we love most in the world – was absolutely the most memorable moment of our wedding day.
