"lovely, approachable and nothing was too much trouble" Kirsten and Dominic July 2018

.... how to sum up our wedding weekend in a few words! It was just PERFECT! We can’t thank you enough for the hard work, patience and kindness you showed us throughout the whole process and over the weekend. You are all so lovely, approachable and nothing was too much trouble! Every single guest was amazed at the venue, how beautiful and well-kept it was. The ceremony was stunning and the grounds meant we hardly needed to do anything to bring out the estate’s beauty. We are still beaming from ear to ear! Howard and Ed were fantastic throughout the whole weekend and the run up to it. We will be eternally grateful to you for making our wedding one that we will remember forever.

  “We wouldn't have changed anything”  Sam and Ryan 2017

 Tracey estates grounds and views where amazing and we always were made welcome and everyone involved in helping us plan our day were so friendly and helpful

 Amazing place to stay the night before, it gave our guests the opportunity to camp which with our Glastonbury theme, worked well and allowed people to enjoy the wedding without the worry of how to get home.

  The three words we would use to describe our wedding day are.... relaxing,  enjoyable perfect . We wouldn’t have changed anything.

Thank you again for all your support throughout the experience of getting married we wouldn't have changed it for the world you were all available at any time that was needed and made our wedding a relaxed feel just how we wanted it. 

"How beautiful Tracey grounds are". Tim and Clare 2017

You guys (and girls) are amazing! From day one: your fairness, kindness, fantastic communication, advice, personableness, helpfulness and hard work made our day, and my family's, feel very very special. Thank you. Moreover we've had so many compliments from our guests about how beautiful Tracey grounds are.

 “We weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding 

 Hayley-Rose and Tom, 2017

As soon as we drove up to Tracey Estate and saw the amazing view, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. In addition to this, we loved the friendly welcome, the flexibility and the fact that we weren't restricted and could really make it ‘our wedding’ not just a wedding. After seeing the beautiful sunken garden, we really couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else.

We loved the fact that it was family run and not corporate. The guys were all informal yet professional and did everything they could to make our day run smoothly and how we'd imagined. When we were let down by our caterers running the bar - they stepped straight in and did an amazing job. They really couldn't do enough to make our day perfect - magical and love-filled.

"You always seemed to be there when needed" Carla & Marcus, 2017

We would all like to express our thanks for making such a perfect day. Everybody was so impressed with the venue. We were so thankful for your help and support leading up to and on the day. Just the right amount, you always seemed to be there when needed.

"Our guests were blown away by the place, just as we had been from first setting foot there a year before" Stu & Sarski, 2017

 Tracey Estate struck us immediately as a unique and stunningly beautiful venue with the perfect mix of outdoor natural landscape, woodland and indoor space that we were looking for to host our festival wedding. With camping on offer and a full weekend hire rate, it allowed us to the time and scope to enlist the help of a working party of close friends to help us set up the venue on the Friday before all our guests joined us for the main ceremony on Saturday. We also appreciated the personal approach and helpful flexibility of the Tracey Estate team throughout the process from booking through to the event itself.

There were so many wow factors about the venue! The stunning woodland not only looked beautiful but also provided an exciting setting in which to situate various special elements of the wedding for our guests to discover when exploring the site. And as we moved from day into night, the mix of uplighters, fairy lights and swedish candles around the sunken garden and woods at night transformed it into a really magical place. Our guests were blown away by the place, just as we had been from first setting foot there a year before.

The three words we would use to describe our wedding day are....

Best. Day. Ever.

 

 “I started the day with an hour of yoga on the lawn” Jo &Matt, 2016

We chose Tracey Estate because it was one of the first places we spoke to that didn't have very prescriptive rules around what suppliers we could use (e.g. caterers).  We also absolutely fell in love with the place when we saw the photos on the website and then visited.  Having the option for guests to camp was also perfect for what we were looking for.

The whole day was just perfect.  I started the day with an hour of yoga on the lawn at the front of the house which I think did something magical (!).  The food was incredible, we were hugely lucky with the weather and all the proceedings went without a hitch.  Your team was a great help throughout the whole process.

 

“Thank you for being so relaxed and flexible” Kirsten & Tim, 2016

Thank you so much for all your help and support in the lead up to our wedding. Tracey Estate was such a perfect venue and we would recommend it to anyone getting married down in Devon.

Thank you for being so relaxed and flexible, and for answering the many phone calls/questions! Hope to see you all again.

 

“Amazing & Absolutely Perfect” - Charlotte & Gareth, 2016

What a day we had! Amazing and absolutely perfect! From the amazing support before and on the day. We could completely tailor the day to how we wanted it and it worked out so well.  We found Abbie & Howard to be incredibly accommodating, really helpful throughout the whole process and involved in helping everything flow so well on the day. 

Such a beautiful and relaxed venue. Thank you for such an unforgettable day.

 

“We totally fell in love with the woodlands” Maddy & Luke, 2016

Tracey Estate gave us the opportunity to put our own stamp on the day (without having to do it all from scratch!). We didn't want somewhere that did millions of weddings a year and we really liked the story behind the venue. Our first visit with Howard (and Merlot!) was really friendly, down to earth and non-pushy. I also totally fell in love with the woodlands!

We also felt we were contributing to the future restoration of the gardens, and its use for educating the wider public.

 

“The venue of our dreams” – Nathan and Anna, June 2015

Howard, Abbie, Ed and all of the Furnivals were so accommodating and helpful, offering ideas and helping us through all the planning and preparation leading up to our big day, we can’t thank them enough! They all really made our day extra special and we feel privileged to have been the first couple to hold their wedding there. All of our guests were blown away with the setting - the Sunken Garden, the gardens and the views - and told us how lucky we were to have such an amazing venue.

We have no doubts that those who choose Tracey as their venue will fall in love just as we have and will have the most perfect day. Tracey is the venue of dreams and we would give anything to be able to relive our day again!

 

“Best wedding EVER!” – Holly and Steph, September 2015

We simply could not believe our luck. Paired with an incredibly accommodating and helpful pair of hosts, we knew that it had to be Tracey Estate straight away. We fell in love with the woodland setting, the beautiful views and luscious lawns as soon as we saw them for the first time. We couldn't believe the number of potential locations to stage the ceremony, reception and party.

In the months leading up to the wedding, we were able to see the venue in all it's winter, spring and summer glory. It's a beautiful place, run by two wonderful people and their family, who all went above and beyond their duties to make sure we had the most amazing day in our lives. 

 

“Sunny, relaxed, joyous!” – Charlie and Jenny, September 2015

We were looking for somewhere that was big enough to accommodate our guest list (140+) but with the flexibility to allow us to do our own thing and that wouldn’t break the bank! We loved the fact that the location felt rural and rustic while also being well connected by road and rail for people coming from London and further afield.

The deciding factor, though, was meeting Abbie and Howard – they were so welcoming, relaxed and positive and made us feel like anything was possible.

Kids were able to exlpore the gardens, make dens in the bushes and have brilliant adventures – it was something I hadn’t anticipated, and it was so lovely to see how all our guests responded to the venue.  Seeing the gardens lit up by hundreds of fairy lights in the evening was truly magical – so many of our guests mentioned how beautiful it was.

Abbie, Howard and Ed pulled out all the stops for us, going above and beyond the call of duty in so many ways. They worked so hard with such attention to detail, and we really appreciated all their efforts. We’re sure Tracey Estate will go from strength to strength as a wedding venue and we feel lucky to have been there at the beginning.
