TESTIMONIALS

From the moment we stepped foot in the barn when we came to look around we knew it was the place for us. We cancelled all other viewings and booked it the next day, and we are so so glad we did. Throughout the planning process the staff at Shustoke were always on hand for any questions we had, even when they were such silly ones, responding in a matter of hours and putting our minds at ease. The day was just a dream, I honestly cannot praise the venue enough, it is just beautiful, even with a bit of rain the courtyard and surroundings just look stunning, and our photos have captured this in all its glory. The food was unbelievable, we have had many comments from our guests, with some saying it’s the best wedding food they’ve ever had, oh and we definitely recommend the pizzas...just divine!! But our biggest compliment has to go to the staff at Shustoke, all day they were on hand to top up drinks, offering out food, and overall just being there to make sure we and our guests were okay. There were no airs and graces about the staff, they were chilled out and laid back but so professional, and it just made everybody feel comfortable. Their efficiency to get things turned around during the day was unreal, I don’t quite know how they do it but they are the best at what they do, and I cannot thank them enough. We have and will continue to recommend Shustoke to everybody we know, because it truly is one of a kind.

Words cannot explain how amazing our day was and we cannot thank you enough. Everything from the start of our initial enquiry through to this morning when we collected our belongings, everything was outstanding and effortless. You really made our day, Emma was on hand to help Andrew during the set up first thing in the morning and when I arrived slightly emotional she quickly took control and calmed me down in an instant. Emma and the team were on hand and were so attentive nothing was left untouched. Emma was always one step ahead of me. I thought I was organised and in control, but this lady is amazing and a total asset to you. The waiting staff were so friendly and helpful, all with huge smiles. We really can’t thank you enough for everything and all of our guests have commented, a number of them saying it’s the best wedding they have EVER been too. “Beef was outstanding, best wedding breakfast ever, canapés just kept coming, no scrimping on portions here, building is stunning, wow, incredible team, manager is fab, I totally love it” are just some of the words people have used. 
 
Shustoke you made our day complete thank you SO much. We love that we even made your Facebook page!

We had the most fantastic time on Saturday - thank you. Everything went so smoothly and our guests loved Shustoke. We really appreciate all of the effort you put into the wedding.

I would encourage anyone to book their special day at this wonderful venue. The day was perfect from start to finish. The barns are not only beautiful but also the perfect size for an intimate wedding. We had around 70 guest in the day. With around 110 in the evening. The staff we so efficient, we barely noticed they were there. Never did my glass go empty. They couldn’t do enough for us and were very polite when I had a minor bridezilla moment due to my wedding dress getting rather muddy - no fault of the staff of course. The food honestly was delicious and there was so much of it- they definitely don’t scrimp on anything. I’ve been to weddings where the portions aren’t great and you’re left feeling a bit hungry- not at Shustoke. Everyone said how nice the food was. Even the children’s meals were lovely. The evening food went down a treat, we had hot dogs and bacon baps. The sausages were massive and the bacon baps were absolutely loaded with bacon! Correspondence before the big day was excellent. Someone always got back to us very quickly. I also loved how flexible they were, they allowed us to change our minds a million times without getting fed up of us. They were polite, accommodating and professional from booking, right up until after the wedding. At no point did we feel they were trying to upsell us or rip us off. But we both feel, had we paid double the price, it would have been worth every penny. It was everything we dreamed of and more. If you’re considering this place for your wedding- just book it. You will not regret it.

Thanks so much to everyone at Shustoke for making our day better than we could have ever imagined. All of the staff were amazing and couldn’t have done any more. Everyone that came was very complementary and couldn’t believe how beautiful the venue was. From the moment we walked into the venue for our first viewing until the wedding itself everything was so perfect and ran incredibly smoothly so again thanks so much.
— Melissa & Tom, December 2017
We wanted the best for our daughters wedding and you did not disappoint. The venue is stunning and met all our expectations. The food was wonderful and was acknowledged as being so. by many of the guests. Due to the attention to detail of your wedding planner, the event went exactly to plan. Many thanks to you and your wonderful staff.

Thank you for a great day. The venue was beautiful, food was amazing and we loved every second of our day. It was so relaxing and we could just enjoy ourselves as the staff were efficient, helpful and friendly and we didn’t want for anything!

From the planning process right through to big day itself, all the staff at Shustoke have been the most amazing and helpful team. Our wedding day ran so smoothly, as soon as the ceremony was over we were able to sit back and relax while the Shustoke team looked after us and our guests. The food was incredible, genuinely the tastiest meal and all our guests were super impressed. The atmosphere was so relaxed as everyone helped themselves to their food from the centre of the tables, the dinner had such a casual and informal feel to it which suited us perfectly. The pizza in the evening was equally as tasty! There was a constant flow of drinks which were being refilled by the attentive staff. Lastly the venue itself is stunning, and fitted perfectly with our rustic autumn wedding.
— Rosie & Mal, Nov 2017
Can I just say how overwhelmed we both were with Shustoke Farm Barns, the level of service, the food and how brilliantly smoothly you guys made the day run for us.
— Jenny & Mark, Nov 2017
This venue was the only one we went to visit and we knew it was perfect for us and our taste. Choosing what you would like for your day is so easy and communication with the venue is fantastic. The venue itself is a stunning picturesque building laden with beautiful lights and glass, but is also a great canvas to personalize how you like. As soon as I (bride) arrived I was greeted and directed through what I needed to do, and I was made to feel at ease at all points. The staff guided us both through the day and they prepared the rooms so quickly for us to carry on enjoying ourselves. The ceremony was perfect, the dinner was perfect, the first dance was perfect, the reception was perfect, Nobody was kept waiting for anything. The only negative is that nobody will stop talking about how great the roast potatoes and canapes were and we can’t find anything as good again! We got a day we never imagined we would have, if anything it was better. They are some of the fondest memories. We cannot thank you enough and we would recommend you to anyone looking for a natural, beautiful, relaxed wedding.

From the very first contact, everyone at the venue has been friendly and approachable. They have an easy to use quoting system and were clear and flexible on costs, Although we weren’t allocated a designated point of contact from the beginning, it didn’t matter as everyone knew our requirements and understood our booking, thanks to their simple online system. We met them several times before the wedding, including a final planning meeting 6 weeks before where they took us through the day step by step so we knew what to expect. They were very knowledgeable and fully involved, even with the smallest details of the day. When we had questions, or needed advice they were really knowledgeable and always gave the best answer for us, not just what was easiest or most common. Every member of staff seemed to fully understand how important this day was to us, taking care and attention to ensure the day ran as we wanted, not just running each wedding the same as the last. We couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend the best day of our lives!

We are so glad we picked Shustoke Farm Barns as our wedding venue. From the minute we booked it, everything was faultless. In the run up to the wedding all the staff were so helpful and prompt in answering our questions and helped us plan the perfect day. On the day, the chef was fantastic, taking particular notice of my dietary requirements. The whole day was faultless and the staff were so efficient yet you didn’t even know that they were there. We wish we could do it all over again! A big thank you to Ellis and Tom for making our day unforgettable. All our guests commented on how fantastic the food was, how plentiful the portions were and how seamlessly the day went. Thank you.

Ever since we saw Shustoke Farm Barns on a list of ‘Top Wedding Venues in Birmingham’ we put it down as our first choice. After we had viewed the venue, we couldn’t say no; we were so impressed by the beautiful surroundings and the spacious barn conversion (we must add that the lighting around the barn and the venue as a background is just perfect for photos!) Throughout the whole planning process, all of the staff - who we communicated with - were pleasant and very helpful. The system they use (My Venue Online) is a useful tool that takes a lot of stress away. We often used the site to ask questions or change details and the staff would always respond and meet our needs quickly. On the day itself, once again the staff were simply wonderful. From holding umbrellas when it rained, to ordering taxis for the majority of guests, to setting out a number of fans when the dance floor got too warm - nothing was a problem (not even setting up our Krispy Kreme Doughnut Tower, which looked particularity challenging). On to the food and drink. Wow! I think every single guest had approached us and commented on how delicious the food was. We were more than impressed by the presentation and how tasty the food was. The bar was open until late -which many of our guests were pleased about. It was well stocked and the drinks were a reasonable price. Overall, we have absolutely no complaints with the staff and this venue and would definitely recommend it! For us it was the perfect place to get married and we hope that we are lucky enough to visit again as day guests so we can enjoy it all over again!

A huge thank you to all your staff for being so fantastic, helpful & cheery. Please pass on a special thank you to the chefs, as some of Bernie’s family are retired chefs, and they were so impressed at how great the food was. Everyone was full of compliments about the venue, staff, food …… everything! We had the best day of our lives, so thank you.
— Bernie & Emily. Jul 2017
The venue was beautiful and the location was great. Food was lovely and the staff were very helpful. The wedding planning meeting answered all of our questions, and the staff were very helpful on the run up to and on the day itself. If we could do it all again, we’d definitely get married at Shustoke again!

I’ve been fortunate enough to attend a bunch of weddings all over the world and this is hands down one of the best venues I’ve seen. The people who run and work at Shustoke Farm Barns understand that the perfect execution of the simple (but high quality) elements of an event virtually guarantee that hosts and guests will have a brilliant time there. The food was of the very highest quality, the staff were courteous, helpful and friendly and the venue itself - including the beautiful courtyard - was truly lovely.
— Deepak. Jul 2017
A massive thank you to everyone at Shustoke Farm Barns for making our wedding day absolutely magical. The whole day was perfect thanks to the amazing staff. We had so many lovely comments from our guests about the delicious food (and how there was so much of it!) and how beautiful the venue is. If we could come back and do it all again we would, it was incredible from start to finish.
— Kazia & Dan. Jul 2017
Can I just say what a wonderful day we had on Monday, you all went over and above to give myself and husband such a perfect day, we are so grateful for how hard you all worked and how attentive you all were. A big thank you too to Emma for calming my nerves prior to the ceremony.
— Kate & Ian. Jul 2017
Thank you so much we had the most amazing day, we really appreciate the hard work your staff put into making our day run so well. Can you pass on our thanks to everyone for us, honestly it was the best day of our lives.
— Sarah & Simon. Jul 2017
Stewart and I would like to thank all of the staff at Shustoke for making our wedding day so perfect. It felt magical and everything went completely to plan. The day ran like clockwork which made us feel at ease, and allowed us to sit back and just enjoy the day. We had a large wedding party but the staff were so professional and organised it wasn’t at all hectic. Our guests have all commented on how impressed they were with the stunning venue, food and most importantly all those working behind the scenes. We just wish we could do it all again and we shall be highly recommending you.
— Heather & Stewart. Jul 2017
Thank you for the best wedding day! It could not of been more perfect for us both, everyone had the best day and thank you to everyone that was working on the day it was the best day of our lives.
— Callaghan & Patrick. Jul 2017
Just wow! We had the best day ever, thank you so much for everything you guys do there at Shustoke Farm Barns. We could not be happier with how our day went, it was perfect in every way.
— Natalie & Greg. Jul 2017
When we read the reviews for this venue and saw the pictures online we were confident this would be the venue for us. Within 10 minutes of our first viewing it was better than we thought and we’d already decided we were booking. The day itself was an absolute dream. We were both a bag of nerves and full on deer in headlights in the morning, but the staff were just incredible all day with us and our guests. We all knew where to go and when, what was coming up and what would be going on. Seamless organisation, we can’t praise them enough honestly. The venue was just beautiful day and night, our guests complimented it all day as being such a unique and totally awesome building. We chose not to put up any decorations just because the exposed brick, gorgeous oak throughout, candlelight and tiny lights in the ceiling beams were just stunning. FOOD!! Every single person had something to say about the food. “Best food they’ve ever had at a wedding” and our day guests had to have a good breather before even contemplating an evening snack. We had the British Feast with beef and everyone loved that the meat was carved at each table and the large portions of potatoes and veg were put in the middle for you to help yourself. Our guests did find a space eventually and the pizzas provided by Baz & Fred were enjoyed by all. To all the staff, especially Emma and Tom who were our main contacts on our day, thank you so much for giving us the best wedding ever in the perfect venue.
— Melissa & Phil. Jul 2017
