From the moment we walked into Houchins we knew it was the venue for us. Not only is the setting beautiful, the staff are amazing. They have a knack for making your wedding feel like their only priority which made the lead up and entire day so special.
We couldn't have dreamed of a more perfect day and are so thankful to Houchins for making it this way.
We highly recommend using Houchins as we honestly couldn't have wished for a more amazing day!
What an amazing day we had, we honestly couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding. We had an incredible day and couldn't fault it. Thank you for all your hard work to make sure our special day ran smoothly. Everyone was extremely helpful, Taylor was fabulous and nothing asked was ever too much. We are extremely grateful to all your teams' support.
What a day we will remember!
We are just back from our mini moon and now all the wedding dusty has settled, just wanted to drop you all a note to say a huge THANK YOU for everything you did to make our day so fantastic. A lot of people had said to us before 'things will go wrong on the day, but you just won't care' - but nothing did for us! Everything ran so smoothly as we had planned and it was everything we wanted it to be and more.
Thank you to all of you and your amazing team that make it all happen, I couldn't recommend you highly enough as a venue.
Everything about Houchins is just perfect. The staff, the ambiance, the farmhouse, the chic decor, the beautiful gardens, the impressive barn and the outside space, the fire pits and log fire! Not forgetting the Marque. You could not ask for anything more as a Country Wedding Venue x
