  • Jess and Robert

    The day we found Sturmer Hall we thought it would be perfect for our wedding.
    Today, just two days after the most perfect wedding day imaginable I can only thank Tina, Daniel and in fact the entire team at Sturmer Hall for all they did for us. The food, everything. It was all so beautiful.

  • Becky & Ross

    Thank you to each and every one of you for making our Wedding Day so wonderful.
    We really could not have wished for a more enjoyable day and will always treasure the memories.

    We would like to send a very special ‘thank you’ to Tina for being a problem-solver, Bridezilla-handler (I’m Ron’s problem now), and wonderful person to have had supporting us both on the lead up to the wedding and on the day itself.

    Many thanks to you all again & our best regards.

  • Mother of the bride

    An amazing venue. My daughter's Winter wedding was held here. We used the delightful village church and the Glass Marque by the lake. Several family members stayed in the house, as well as all the rooms on site. We couldn't have chosen a better venue for the magical day. The host, manager and staff were accommodating and efficient.

  • Happy bride

    We got married at Sturmer Hall on Wednesday in the Music Room and the place looked fantastic, we had a really nice small ceremony like we wanted, the staff was great in making sure everyone had plenty of food and drinks and the kids loved playing football outside. Great venue.
