Charlotte Wooliscroft – Bride 26 Oct 2019 Hi Sophie and Justin,
Sorry we didn’t manage to see you this morning we had you rush to get to Chester for our chill out 🙂
Thank you so much for yesterday and all your help! It was amazing… stress free and just fabulous! We really appreciated all your help and support! Honestly, it was just chilled and exactly what we wanted! We also had heavy heads and sore feet this morning which was a good sign of a cracking night!
Meesha & Dan, Bride & Groom 12 Oct 2019 Hello Sophie and Justin,
I hope you are well. After a busy wedding week and few days mini break in the New Forest (North Hampshire) where Dan proposed to me last year, my husband and I are slowly returning to reality! Our honeymoon will be in early next year.
We would like to thank you for all of your help with making our wedding day so special. The house was an amazing venue in which to get married and our guests were really impressed with the location. You have made our wedding day nice and cosy during Autumn season! It was not a typical English wedding or typical Indian wedding but a fusion of both cultures within autumn decorations, which was what we were aiming for, it was something different for all of our guests. Thank you so much for your positive energy, enthusiasm, passion, determination and helping us create our dream wedding.
Your suggestions and experience helped create a truly memorable day for us and made everything run smoothly and stress-free. You made yourselves available to us over email and at planning meetings and were accommodative to our requests and made the process of planning our big day easy even though we were many miles away.
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you so much for everything you have done, nothing was too much for you. We will be recommending Heath House everywhere we go. We are already thinking when we can book Heath House again for other occasions!
Meesha and Dan xx

Norfolk Bluebells Celebrant for Mr & Mrs Griffiths 1 Dec 2018 “It’s always lovely to venture further afield to conduct a wedding and today I had the pleasure of travelling to the stunning venue of The Heath House in Tean, Stoke-on-Trent, to officiate at a ceremony for Tanya and Daniel. In 9 years of conducting wedding ceremonies, both as a registrar and a celebrant, this is one of the most beautiful venues I’ve ever been to. Fact!
From the moment of arrival, guests receive the warmest of welcomes from the owners, Sophie and Justin. Nothing is too much trouble and they really do open up their wonderful home for everyone to enjoy.
Tanya and Danial looked so deeply in love as they exchanged their vows; they only had eyes for each other.
This may be a venue some distance from my usual base but I would return to The Heath House in a heartbeat! #celebrantinlovewithavenue
And to the lovely Mr & Mrs Griffiths, thank you for the privilege of conducting your ceremony today and I wish you every happiness in your future together as husband and wife 💏”

It was a joyful weekend and we would definitely consider returning in the future. Thanks again for allowing us to share your home. Kind regards, Linda, Michael, Mum and the extended family 😃”

Mr & Mrs Jonathan Armstrong Fri 26 August 2016
“We wanted to send you a quick email just to express our thanks for everything you did for us throughout the entire wedding process. From the first moment, we knew that the venue was the right setting for us. Everything about the house, gardens, views and general atmosphere made picking The Heath House a very easy decision. Though the house did not sell it us alone; the enthusiasm and effort you both put in from the start really made us feel special and taken care off right down to the finest detail and I will say out of all the venues we looked at no one was quite as welcoming as yourselves. It really felt like a second home to us and we both agree that was purely down to you both. We really did have the most amazing day, one to treasure for a lifetime and we are both glad it was shared with all our friends, family and yourselves (oh, and the dogs!!). We have been plotting our next events at The Heath House so we may get to invade your home again in the future! If you wanted a quotable sentence “Quite simply the best venue, hosts and atmosphere anyone could ever wish for on their wedding day”. If anyone else we know gets engaged and asks our advice there will only be one place we recommend. Again, thank you both so much – we had the best time and are missing The Heath House already! With love, The new Mr and Mrs Armstrong x”

Mr and Mrs Neil Sutton 6th June 2016 “We had our beautiful wedding day in June this year following 18 months of preparation and everything went just as we has planned. The venue is fantastic, a beautiful house with spectacular grounds which we had all to ourselves for a whole 24 hours – exactly what I had dreamed of. Sophie and Justin are the most helpful and friendly of hosts and were available to us whenever we needed them from the time we first met with them to the day of the wedding to be sure everything was exactly as we wanted it to be. Every aspect of our day was prepared – from the photographer to the string quartet we had playing my entrance into the ceremony room – practiced to perfection. We chose to have some outdoor activities following our wedding ceremony including a birds of prey display and clay pigeon shooting (adapted to laser guns to targets ) which was fully supported by Sophie and Justin. Nothing was too much trouble. Sophie was very helpful on the day with keeping our little children happy – including a mini adventure gathering tadpoles from the nearby pond into jam jars. They loved it! I can highly recommend The Heath House as a venue for your wedding day – or any other important event – the place is beautiful and Sophie and Justin the perfect hosts.”
