From the moment we saw the gorgeous, lush gardens of the estate and the stunning fabric-draped tent, we knew we wanted to get married at Crossed Keys. We loved the fact that it’s a family owned and run venue, and Katherine and Jessica made us feel like we were part of the family throughout the entire planning process. They helped make our wedding dreams a reality and we couldn’t be more thankful! On the day of the wedding, they were both there making sure everything was going as planned and checking in with us frequently. After a rainstorm that morning, their team was so quick to set up the ceremony area, making sure the wedding was on schedule and gave us the ceremony of our dreams despite the weather. It’s been a few weeks and our friends and family are still talking about how amazing our wedding was - from the food (which was absolutely delicious), to the gorgeous venue and the convenience of everything being in one spot (ceremony, cocktail hour and reception), and everything in between. We know our guests will remember this wedding forever! We truly could not be happier with how everything turned out and would 100% recommend this venue to anyone considering getting married here.

Just had our son's wedding at Crossed Keys and it was even more than I expected. Firstly, the grounds are beautifully maintained. The whole day was so relaxing - Katharine and her staff made sure of that - a pleasure and very accommodating. That started the moment the wedding date was confirmed there. The tent was amazing - with a great size dance floor and the food was delicious. It is my pleasure to recommend Crossed Keys to anyone ready to make their wedding there. Book it now!
