East Afton Farmhouse is the perfect venue for a wedding. The setting is beautiful and so flexible that you can create your own dream day.
We booked our wedding at short notice and took advance of a micro package Afton was offering where several services were included for the price including the catering for the wedding breakfast and a few hours of photography. We saw this as a bonus as it saved another job of securing various suppliers for the required date and bringing it all together. I was hesitant at first as many vendors would cut costs here with what was being offered in order to make more profit. I shouldn’t have worried as each supplier provided by East Afton was faultless. Our food was supplied by Kevin Hendy and was phenomenal, we opted for canapés and a grazing table for the evening in addition to our main meals and have had nothing but compliments on the quality of ingredients, the flavours and how delicious it all was. I have even enquired with Kevin about cooking for us for our first wedding anniversary. Similarly, our photography was done by Little Isle Photography, another included supplier. Little Isle are a husband & wife team that got married at Afton themselves and Sam came to do our photos. The photos we have received so far are gorgeous & we hate photos of ourselves!! Once again I’ve had nothing but praise from my guests about how polite and personable Sam was throughout the day which is lovely to hear.
We also had a few vases of flowers included as part of our package by the newly established East Afton Blooms. Jo turned up to discuss with me the day before our wedding whilst setting up and was just wonderful. She agreed to do a small cluster arrangement on an arch for us instead of physically putting the flowers into vases and it was just the perfect touch for where we had our ceremony. Once she’d visited and dressed the spot I felt very at ease. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend using East Afton Blooms for all your flowers, I wish I had, Jo’s flowers have lasted a lot longer than my other flowers from another florist and I’m subsequently enjoying them at home. I also just found her very friendly and easy to work with as she listened to what I wanted. I think Jo would be great to work with for all your floral needs for the day; don’t hesitate!
Lastly, the best thing about East Afton is Chloe and the team that support her in running the venue. Chloe made sure our day was perfectly executed and went above and beyond in what she did for us. She is an exceptionally efficient and eloquent woman who is a huge asset to East Afton Farmhouse. All of the team are polite and helpful and can’t do enough for you. When you book with Afton you can be assured that you are in very capable hands. If I was lucky enough to hold an event again I would definitely look to work with Chloe and the team as their expertise and experience are second to none.
