We had the most magical wedding at the hidden hive! My absolute dream wedding venue come true! The grounds are perfect and staff really friendly and helpful. We loved our day so so much but we’re sad we only get to do it once!! Truly beautiful place x

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for hosting our wedding on Thursday. The venue is truly stunning and every single guest said exactly that, the common question was ‘how the hell did you find this venue’, it really is a magical place. I could not have asked for a better venue, and Portugal getting cancelled was actually a blessing in disguise. I fell more in love with it every time I walked through the gate, and to see it fully dressed when I arrived on the day, well it was truly breathtaking! Stunning!
As for the service, first class. Dani, you are an absolute credit to the company. Your attention to detail and ensuring that everything ran so smoothly was so reassuring to us. I know that every single guest had the absolute best time, the comments we keep getting show that it’s certainly going to be a lifetime memory for each and every person that was there. And I do not think that’s just because it’s the first real event after lockdown, I genuinely believe that it is a wedding that will live long in the memory for all of the right reasons. Everywhere I looked people were laughing, smiling and enjoying themselves.
I really hope that nobody overstepped the line, and that it will also be a wedding that you as a company will remember for the right reasons also.
Thank you again so much for everything!
We would most definitely recommend you to anybody looking for a wedding venue.

Amazing venue, great atmosphere, fantastic food.
5 stars it's definitely an outstanding place!
The caterers absolutely smashed it, great food and excellent communication and organisation before and on the day.

Highly recommend Bradbury Glade as a wedding venue.
