To anybody who is considering getting married and hasn't got wedding venue, you may consider having your big day at The Venue in Ashbourne, Derbyshire. It was everything & more me and my wife could have wished for. The owners of The Venue Toni Shepherd & her husband Tim and their staff make everything just perfect. We could not have wanted any more or less. The meal was, well words can not describe how fantastic it was. Me and my wife Caroline Boole highly recommend The Venue. Bride, groom and guests will all leave so happy and know that everyone has had a wow of a day. It's very much worth getting in touch with Toni or go to one of the wedding fayres. PS on a personal note thank you so much Toni & Tim

Recommended Suppliers


Why do we have recommended supliers?

Quite simply, because we know them and we trust them to deliver an excellent service!

Having worked with our suppliers for a number of years, we know that they too want you to have the best, most positive experience on your wedding day.

Our suppliers know The Venue Ashbourne, what works well here and how they can utilise their resources and ours to ensure your requirements are met without a problem and ensure the day is seamless.

You won't get your wedding venue still being set up when you arrive for your service or with incorrect decoration because 'we didn't realise what size your tables were'.' You wont get the photographer running out of batteries. You wont get a candy cart with sweets you didn't choose. Neither will you get a bouncy castle not there on time for your guests because 'we didn't know where you were'.

What you will get is professionalism and stress-free planning. Just think, the more you organize through ourselves, the less you have to worry about sorting yourself!
