From day 1 the staff made everything easy. I needed a professional group that could work with an out-of-town bride and everyone on staff was fabulous! Special shoutout to John at Wedmore Place for being amazing!! Not only could I rely on John for detail help, but he recommended vendors that he personally looked into to meet our standards, he created an elegant, on-budget meal that all of our guests RAVED about (I wish I had gotten to try it - remember to eat fellow couples!), and he SAVED THE DAY when Hurricane Joaquin threatened to spoil our day. There aren't enough thank you's in the world for this man. The winery is so beautiful and we had the best time!

The Williamsburg Winery is one of the most beautiful venues imaginable, and flawlessly professional. The wood has been lightened from previous years, and with the lights the staff put around, the whole place absolutely glowed. Guests were overwhelmed by the elegance of the Winery, and it gave me peace of mind that, no matter what the weather, our venue would be covered but still provide guests with the option of going outside. Saved me a ton of stress on the day! Kristin was fantastic to work with--quickly responsive, flexible, and available before and during the day of the event even when I made last-minute changes! Another of the major perks of booking with the Winery is that you get to use their wines! We had a bridal tasting that was a ton of fun prior to the wedding, and selected all the wines that we would want to serve. The servers were attentive and prevented lines throughout the night. The whole thing was exceptionally professional. If I had to do it again, the only thing I would do is build in a little extra budget for the wines. When we purchased our package, we were assured (by a different person than Kristin) that the proposed wine package would be more than enough for our 4-hour reception. We pushed back, but were told we would not need more. We did run out with about an hour to go, despite these assurances. Luckily, we could get more wine from the cellar, so our guests didn't even have to know that we were ever running out, but it did add some unplanned cost to the total venue. I would say that you should know your guests and just keep this in mind if you know they'll go through a ton of wine! Everything about this venue is absolutely perfect--just build in some wiggle room for the wines! We also stayed at the Wedmore Place and I can't say enough about them. It was magical, and they responded to every single need of our bridal party! Absolutely loved it--thank you!

The Williamsburg Winery was our first and only choice! From the start they were accommodating and very fast at responding to all my emails with in a few hours! Even though there was a coordinator change which I was worried about both Kristin and Emily were amazing. Kristin walked me through everything and I had a table change two days before the wedding which they did with no problem. Everything was beautiful! Emily was a great manager for the rehearsal and the day of! I was very thrilled with how everything went. It was an amazing night with what I believe is the best venue! We also stayed at their hotel Wedmore Place they were also very accommodating and kind throughout the process. I would definitely recommend this venue!

When my husband and I first got engaged, we knew that the winery was our ideal location for our reception. We first met with the winery a year before our wedding and decided to go ahead and book. This was probably the easiest part about our experience. The first coordinator we worked with was very slow at responding and never seemed interested in helping us in any manor. In our contract it said that if we chose to go with a caterer off of their preferred vendor list (all VERY expensive), but when we asked about a caterer that had done work their previously, just not a wedding, we were told that the approval committee was "picky" and we should just go with one of theirs. Then we stopped receiving responses all together for about a month until we got an email that said she had put in her two weeks notice and the contact information of the new person taking her position. Once we started working with Kristen, everything turned around. She was so accommodating, allowed us to use our caterer, even helped us save an additional fee with them by placing the tables and chairs for them. She was very quick to respond and immediately give me updated paperwork reflecting those changes. If we had dealt with Kristen the whole time, I really feel our experience of planning would have been better. Once our wedding day came, our reception turned out as beautifully as I imagined and I would do it over in a heartbeat.

My husband and I used The Williamsburg Winery for our ceremony. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day! The lawn provided the perfect back drop with many locations for wedding day photos. Special shout out to Kit for being with us during the rehearsal and the wedding day! She was alert and responsive with a quick response to accommodate any questions we had. The best part was knowing there was a Plan B indoors in case of inclement weather. Thank you TWW for providing my husband and I with the most spectacular ceremony!

From the minute we walked into The Williamsburg Winery, we knew that this is where we wanted to get married. The hall and outside is absolutely beautiful. The people who work there are very helpful and helped eased the mind of a very stressed bride when I had a million and one questions.

The winery alone made our wedding the beautiful event that it turned out to be and I can't imagine getting married anywhere else.

The only downside is the price, but for that stunning of a venue in that area, you can't get a better deal.

The venue was beautiful but unfortunately we had our coordinator changed out 3 times during our process and no one ever contacted us when we would get a new coordinator. We also had a lot of problems getting them to call us back when we would have questions, concerns or even we would like to make a payment. I would like to add that we didn't call that many times so the fact that when we would call, which were so few, we couldn't get a response made me very antsy during our process to plan our wedding. The venue however was beautiful and exactly what we looked for when we were planning our wedding.

Our wedding, while not the largest (100 guests), had a lot of moving parts and challenges. I am very grateful for the excellent service and support the team at Wessex Hundred provided us. As an event planner, I work in many venues/facilities on a weekly basis, and the service at the winery and Wedmore Place is top notch - among the best.

The team at Wedmore was excellent, always going above and beyond for our guests...the support staff and front desk staff were always very gracious to us, our guests, and most importantly our family, which had advanced accessibility requirements. Our guest bags were delivered into guests' rooms prior to arrival and any request was promptly answered.

The staff at Cafe Provencal is excellent. We received great feedback on all of the food at our brunch, our pool party and at the restaurant. If any item ran out during breakfast service, they would come to each table to let us know when it was replenished.. That's GREAT service. The decorations and set up for the pool party and bridal brunch were gorgeous and we really appreciated John O'Connor's hard work and planning for this.

Working with event director, Kate Durret for the 6-7 months leading up to our wedding made planning the weekend almost easy. We appreciated the hospitality as my family (and I) conducted multiple site visits. Everything was executed flawlessly. The response time was so quick and always friendly (even with some of our crazy requests). I wouldn't have changed a thing with this wedding. Thank you for the excellent recommendations with our support vendors (DJ Bobby and the Catering Company). The reviews we received for food and entertainment were great. We truly had a magical night.
