Great Wedding Venue
We had our wedding there in May 2019. Martha was very helpful, she respond our emails and inquires pretty quick, and everything was set us as planned. We had our wedding in the summer house and had BBQ Buffet. The summer house is really nice and it's the right size for our 70 guests. The food was really delicious. We had our band/dj set up at the balcony of Summer House and it worked pretty well.Sent on 06/06/2019

Beautiful Wedding done Ourselves
We had our wedding here in Sept 2017. We had the ceremony on the Front lawn then went to the Summer House for the BBQ. The food was fantastic!!!
The wedding planner was no help at all. She was unable to keep things we had talked about many times straight and the day before the wedding she told me she was glad I had done everything ourselves because she had a more important golf banquet the next day.
Honestly our day was perfect, the Venue gave us excellent pictures that we cherish and we had a ton of fun at the Summer House. This was all done and arranged by ourselves however, The Briars really did not help with much, and we just found the wedding coordinator completely unhelpful and inept at her job.Sent on 18/07/2018

The venue was exactly what we wanted, it was a good space and the food was the highlight absolutely. The chef and bar staff were exceptional but the wait staff were only acceptable. Be alert to having the venue follow through with details that were promised. We were specifically in the Summer House which we would recommend.Sent on 22/08/2017

Thank you, thank you so much for all that you did to make our wedding day a success!! I had such a positive experience with the Briars as our wedding venue and heard nothing but compliments on the location, the history, the wonderful staff and just overall what a wonderful day it was! John in particular was a wonderful help the day of setting up and helping with little details! My husband and I both said how much we appreciated the staff being there if we needed them, without being too much, what a comfort it was to know that you had everything in order. The venue is of course one of the most important aspects of a wedding and the Briars did not disappoint! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day! We are already looking forward to our next visit to the Briars and will highly recommend you to anyone.Sent on 24/11/2018

Beautiful, do your due diligence
Beautiful grounds, delicious food. Newer wedding manager was very helpful and accommodating but because we had initially booked with the last wedding manager many miscommunications occured. Happy overall, but cost and promises made weren't fully held up due to the changes in management.Sent on 26/09/2018
