Our wedding was absolutely everything we hoped it would be and more and we owe most of that to the English Inn! A friend of ours recommended it to us and we were so glad that they did as it was a little out of the areas that I was originally searching in.Sent on 07/20/2018
The whole feel of the English Inn was so dreamy and unique its hard not to fall in love. Some of my favorite aspects include:
1. The rooms! There are 20 rooms on site so we were able to have all of our immediate family and the wedding party stay together both Friday and Saturday nights and it was so nice not having travel for the weekend and being all together. The rooms are also STUNNING. The variety of rooms to stay in was so much fun too. The main house/restaurant has 8 rooms that are decorated to resemble the early 20th century English decor and every little detail is just perfect (we put the girls of the bridal party here). There is another house with 5 beautiful rooms where we put the men of the bridal party. There is another adorable house down by the river and 8 other cottages where we put our immediate family. That are all newer and perfect. They also have coffee delivery to your door in the morning and a delicious English breakfast served in the morning with the most attentive staff!
2. The food! How they managed to make 200 absolutely perfect filets is still puzzling to our family and friends. Trust me, they know what they're doing. We also got our cake through them which was so beautiful and delicious. We went with a strawberry cake with a vanilla buttercream frosting - big hit!
3. The staff! The event planner, Adriana, is one of the most friendly, helpful, and organized people I have ever met. She really made the process so much better and was there the whole day setting up until the cake was served. She was also SO helpful for the many months leading up to the wedding. The rest of the staff was also very friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful as well!
4. The grounds!

Our daughter recently got married at the English Inn. Every moment start to finish was amazing! The ceremony and reception areas were gorgeous! The wait staff went over and beyond to ensure that our event went smoothly and our guests were taken care of - like royalty! Rebecca personally maintained contact with me ensuring our happiness; she and her banquet team were spectacular and professional in every possible way. Our guests raved about the food, as the meal was phenomenal!!! Every aspect of the planning process, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, reception and throughout the wedding day and our nights stay was perfection. It will be a day/experience we will always remember fondly, with gratitude to English Inn staff.Sent on 08/15/2019
Adriana, the special events organizer, was a joy to work with. She made the planning and execution of our event a pleasant and joyful experience. The English Inn is blessed to have her on staff. She is an incredible representative of the English Inn and the event services they offer. If I could I would give them a 10 star rating!!! I highly recommend you choose the English Inn for your special occasion!

The English Inn sets the bar as far as quality and customer service. Our staff loves working with the English Inn because of the level of professionalism and attention to detail when it comes to making the bride and groom happy. It makes it so nice when the level of passion and commitment align between our company and the venues we are working at and English Inn and Limelight couldn't be a better match. Elegance, quality, and memorable are just a few terms I would use to describe the English Inn and they are definitely on the top of our recommendation list.
The English Inn and Medovue Hall have always been and always will be one of our all-time favorite venues. The surroundings, the staff, the food and the service are all outstanding. You really have to see the picturesque setting the property has to offer. Check out their photos and you'll get an idea of how gorgeous it really is. With the Pergola nestled along the banks of the Grand River, the elegant Medovue Hall and the brand new lodging facilities, the English Inn has it all. I would describe the English Inn as a destination wedding location that's close to home.
