After planning our wedding for the summer of 2020 and after the unfortunate events of COVID we were left without a venue or date after the collapse of our previous wedding venue. Upon the recommendation of our wedding photographer, we were then introduced to Lady Fiona Fitzherbert who was beyond amazing. Before we knew it, we had a date pencilled in for 2021, a meeting scheduled for when we could visit after the first initial lockdown and when we finally got to visit the venue, we just fell in love instantly and knew this was meant to be.
Both Lady Fiona and Sir Richard Fitzherbert were brilliant in their communication, both with multiple phone calls or Facetime tours of the venue and we were always made to feel very special and looked after, which after our disappointed with our previous venue was extremely reassuring. The venue itself and surrounding village is simply magical, from the stunning grounds and beautiful architecture. We decided to opt to get married at St Mary’s church in Tissington which is only a short walk opposite the venue, which was lovely on the day of the wedding as we got some lovely photos of the procession walking from church to venue and was hassle free in terms of guest transport.
The reverend of St Mary’s is Reverend Carolyn McDonald who like Lady Fiona was amazing from day 1 of meeting her on the church zooms to meeting in person and made the whole experience and planning so simple. With lockdown ending and restrictions lifting, we were introduced to Caroline who would be supporting Lady Fiona as our wedding co-ordinator. I think everyone needs a Caroline in their life, she is a burst of energy and joy and made the run up to the big day seamless. As for our wedding day, it was simply magical from start to finish and the memories will live with us forever. Tissington Hall, church and village will now hold a very special place in our hearts and we feel extremely lucky that we were able to have our wedding here. We are extremely grateful to Lady Fiona, Sir Richard, Reverend Carolyn McDonald, Caroline and Upper Crust Catering for helping us organise and cater such an amazing day.
It was such an honour to be married on these beautiful grounds, thank you again Lady Fiona and Sir Richard for inviting us to use your wonderful home for our special day.
Best day ever! Abbie & David xxx
