Our Wedding
at the Fleece

Gillian & Colin | 6th May 2022

Gillian & Colin’s Special Day

On May 6th this year we had the honour and pleasure of hosting the wedding of Gillian and Colin. Their celebration was stunning to say the least and the happy couple have been kind enough to reflect on their special day below.

Feeling Welcomed:

“All of the staff were welcoming & attentive and nothing was too much trouble. The following day all staff took the time to say congratulations to us both.”

“Scott (our Wedding Manager) kept in touch with us regularly in the run up to the wedding, making sure he checked all the finer details. He worked hard to make sure the order of the day ran to time and that we were happy with everything. He did a great job.”

“Scott and the Fleece also allowed a special guest to attend our wedding, my horse Rosie.”

On The Venue:

“The Fleece’s decor and furniture is of a high quality and goes well with the impressive features of the building; the oak beams and stone walls especially. We particularly loved the wall art of dogs, especially the Basset hound in the bridal suite as we have a Basset at home!”

“The Hadrian suite was immaculate and we got a sneaky peek with a welcome glass of Prosecco before our wedding breakfast. Our table decorations, which we made from horseshoes from our horse Rosie, finished the look perfectly.”

On The Food:

“The service of our Wedding breakfast was timed to perfection. The food was amazing and there was certainly plenty of it. Many of our guests commented on how impressed they were with the food.”

On The Party:

“The DJ played all of the songs we asked for and also took requests from our guests. There was a great atmosphere and the dance floor was full constantly.”


In Reflection:

Overall we had a fantastic day and we didn’t want it to end! We were made to feel so welcome and special by the Fleece. We would definitely recommend the Fleece to anyone looking for a modern yet classic venue that runs like clockwork, you will have a perfect day!

All of the staff at the Fleece at Ruleholme would like to thank Gillian, Colin, and Rosie for spending their special day with us. It was our pleasure to accommodate you and all of you guests and we wish you all endless happiness in your marriage.
