The Spread Eagle in Thame was the only wedding venue we went to go and view. The reason for this was because we fell in love with it as soon as we looked at the photos. Seeing it in person was beyond what we imagined and seeing it all done up and decorated on our wedding day was beyond perfect. The

staff at The Spread Eagle were absolutely amazing! Bryan and Gemma on the run up and the day before our wedding were so helpful and answered all of our worries and questions within record time. Sometimes we felt like we were over messaging as I was a big worrier but they always replied within record time and helped us. Demi was absolutely fabulous on the day of our wedding. She was so friendly and made everything run so smoothly. It just all came together and everything fitted perfectly into the day. The venue looked absolutely beautiful, better than we could of ever imagined. All of our guests were pleased with their rooms and the meals. The DJ was brilliant. If we could relive the day over and over again then we absolutely would! Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for making our wedding day such a special day. We cannot wait to come back again in November for our 1 year anniversary meal! Xx
